Fira is beautiful and has plenty to do. The hostel is in walking distance to everything in Fira, however, if you want to travel to other areas of Santorini via public transportation, it starts to add up if your trying to be cautious w/your money (bus terminal close by). Close to the Old Port which has plenty of excursions. Staff

I had a lot of fun at this hostel because it was easy to meet people. It was also great that it had a pool and the location was excellent as it was close to the buses and you could walk downtown. However the bathrooms were the worst I've ever encountered. They were gross and flooded the floor and smelled bad. However it's not that big of a deal. Would still stay here again.


Near to the bus station and shops. Big lockers in the dorms and comfortable beds. Had a sociable communal area and kitchen. Would recommend.


This hostel was not clean at all and extremely noisy. Full of very young people who are probably traveling for the first time. If you want to party and get social/drunk, this is the place. If not, avoid this. Staff was super nice though!


Would recommend Backpackers Place to anyone and everyone. I had the most amazing time here because of the people I met. The atmosphere allows you to meet new people and form new friendships and bonds. Location was super close to bus station as well and centrally located.


Cheap hostel at a perfect location for travelling around Santorini. The pick-up service from the harbour is very useful. But the hostel could be more clean, beds more comfortable and the showers better.


Location is prime, next to central bus line to accept the whole island. Decent beds, ensuites are good. Kitchen and common area were good. Pool was a bonus. Lockers, room fridges and WiFi were good. Washing was free, bonus!


Excelent hostel, in a very good location, 3 minutes walking to the bus station and 4 to the center of the city. From the bus station you can go any place in santorini and in the hostel they also call you for the bikes and atv service, very cheap! The staff is super friendly and helpfull, hope the names are right, but thanks to Arietta and Miharis, they were very kind with me, i had an accident and the doctor came to the hostel and they provide me with a room to be attended. Great and cheap!


Great location with just 5 min walk from bus station, it's VERY convenient if you bring heavy luggage or arrive at night by bus. Staff is kind, provide many facilities that you needed, especially the fully equipped kitchen! However, the shower with extremely low water pressure! Almost no hot water supply for shower in double private suite. Also, very noisy as our room located at ground floor near entrance even until 2:00am. I can't sleep well during my stay at there.


one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in


위치도 가깝고! 버스정류장이랑 완전 가까워요! 그리고 시내, 카르푸랑도 가까웠어요. 세탁은 무료에요! 세제만 사와서 세탁기 쓰면 되구요. 근데 배수가 안돼서 넘쳐서 방 안까지 넘쳤었어요. 가방 꺼내뒀다가 배낭 다 젖고😭 배수 안되는 것 말고는 다 괜찮았어요. 근데 제가 머문 3일동안 매일 넘쳤어요.


Average hostel. Needs more bathrooms. Close to everything, staff is nice. Atmosphere is great.


Had a great time at this hostel. Staff were lovely, room was nice and cool and you're super close to the bus station.


Everything at this hostel was perfect especially the staff! I really recommend Fira Backpackers!!!


The hostel was clean and comfortable. I was in a 6 bed dorm which was quite cramped but wasn't unbarable with an ensuit bathroom. There was also a communal shower and more toilets if the ensuite was busy. There was a pool which was nice but as I went in October the weather was quite hit and miss. There were lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance but we had to get a bus into Santorini town. Overall I really enjoyed my stay


Allowed us to change our room to stay in the same room asothers we were travelling with without any issues. Even kept the pool open an extra 20-30 min for a late swim.


excellent hostel, the staff are awesome and really helpful and they will guide you through your staying ! rooms are clean as well as the bathrooms. Laundry is free, you will have only to pay the soap for 1 euro :D highly recommended


Great staff! Our ferry got in at 5:50am and they let us store our luggage until check in, they were thorough with the map of the island, and were helpful with recommendations. The location was good, value for money was good, and everyone got their own locker which was excellent.


Great hostel for meeting people - everyone, including staff, is friendly. Wi-fi doesn't work in most areas apart for the main common room. Pool is fun! Very easy to find and conveniently located.

Great location in Santorini. Close to bus station, just a short walk in to the heart of town. Lots to see and do from this location - hire quad bikes, head to Oia for the sunset, Red & Black beaches. Very secure location and even staying with the dorm rooms with lockable cupboards for your belongings.
