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.


Swimming pool is a joke. Mattress would need to be renewed, as well as shower curtain


We got yelled at for talking in the courtyard prior to midnight which was unnecessary. The shiwer was very small and leaked all over the bathroom floor. Its saving grace was that it is close to the square.


Staff is really helpful and the location is good, close to the supermarkets, the bus station, hospital... They provide towels, common area is nice, people are friendly and you can use washing machine free charge. But when it comes to the toilets, owww, they are incredibly disgusting. Toilet is clean till the first person takes a shower, after that the whole toilet is full of water and dirty, because people come and go. I will search better next time and avoid staying at this place.


Location was good to see the picturesque hill views and nearby quality restaurants. Rooms were a little cramped though and there was only one washing machine to use for all hostel guests to use.


Central location. Staff very helpful. Our room flooded in a storm one night, we honestly thought we would have to move rooms but the staff worked tirelessly to clean the room and it was as good as new! Beer and cider in the vending machine is a definite plus. Pool was very clean, great to have a dip after a day of sightseeing and the beach.


Booked a 4 bedroom with ensuite, a little small but was fine. Great location, 5-10 minute walk to all the shops and bars. Plenty of food and bike/scooter hire options in the area. Staff were helpful. Free washing machine but there's only 1 and it sprays out water the whole time. Not the most social because it's a busabout stop and they stick together, but still alright. Would stay again


It was very pleasent to stay at this hostel since it is located in a very nice, calm location a few steps away from the center of santorini. Good hostel for young people, very nice welcoming, nice staff.


Not a fan at all of the shower over the toilet. I refused to use it and had to wait until the single common shower was ready, which wasn't much better. That aside a great hostel.


I stayed in the round bungalows (2 person female share, shared bathroom) up the top of the hill, luckily I wasn't too far from the 1 toilet block for the whole hillside. In my half of the room there was tree rubbish on my bed that had fallen through the gutter and the front half of my roof was slowly falling in. I only paid €10 so I guess you get what you pay for. For that amount the accom was quite good, but for only a couple of dollars more you can get a lot better quAlity.


Dorms were very good: private lockers, private light in beds, private bathrooms (only the shower was ouside the bedrooms). Staff was very helpfull. Very good location.


The sheets, the towels and above all the bathroom were really dirty and discusting. That's too bad cause the others things were good (the staff is kind, the place and the people were fine and there is a little pool!). It's a good place for 3 night max but not more!!!!


Not the cleanest hostel I've stayed at and it's full with people from bisabout


This hostel was very overpriced for the facilities. The rooms were very small but the beds were decent sizes. Good location, close to fira town centre


Security - not the greatest when I arrived they made a mistake with the bed allocations. So they took out a girls bag and valuables from her locked locker and just left them in the room. Really didn't like that!! Location is excellent.. 2 min walk from village and bus stop. Shower always floods cos the curtain is too short... So many people and commented on this but still nothing done about it!! Busabouts are there but no problem! Value for money not that great but would stay there again


base for fewnights


Fira Backpackers Place is in a very good area of Fira. They offer lots of services. Staff us friendly all the time. Just the price is not the best - but for few days it is worth it.
