The quality of the wifi isn't good. It dropped out all the time making it almost unusable

Kitchen = good. Atmosphere = good, there are places to hang out, and they don't mind you drinking and sitting around chatting at all hours. Overpriced at the time I visited, but a well run, organised and friendly hostel.

This was one of the best hostels I have stayed in. Each person in the room had their own key. There were lockers with the locks provided. Sheets, blanket, and a towel were provided. My bed was comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. The pool was a bit of a let down.

Nice comfortable stay, I think a little pricey for what it was but it was worth staying there, so close to the main town.

The staff will go out of their way to make sure you have an amazing stay! They are so sweet and accommodating! Even when I left to IOS for a few days, I was allowed to store my luggage in their lockers. Fira backpackers is conveniently located by the busline that will take you everywhere - airport, Perissa beach, you name it. The atmosphere was truly amazing & I was lucky enough to have the best roommates ever- Paula and Ryan! Santorini was an unforgettable experience and truly is paradise

This place is really disgusting. It smelled bad and the bathrooms were terrible. Very expensive for what you pay for. I was cringing every time I had to use the bathroom. Would never stay here again.

Private toilets are too small ( you cant open the door correctly while been inside) and there is just one public toilet with two wc for the whole hostel. ( which were also dirty , and a door for wc didnt close)

The dorms were very clean and the staff friendly. Showers were great. Unfortunately I was sick and with a fever and wasn't able to get much sleep at night. It was very loud and noisy. Maybe it was more of a party hostel that I expected.

Secure lockers available for storage. Close to Fira bus station and main town. The staff aren't very welcoming, don't really say hello or even crack a smile. This hostel isn't very clean. Everyone was coughing/sick. Nothing seems to be disinfected. The sheets don't look or smell clean. It's not worth 37 euro a night for sure especially with no free breakfast or pub crawl. Wish another hostel was here to give them a run for their money. Atmosphere could be WAY better.

Great location - a minute from the bus station and city center. Welcoming staff, common area with free wifi. Pool and patio were good hangout spots. They provide a locker with locks in your room. Relatively social environment.

I thought that the hostel was fine for one night passing through, but I just didn't think it was worth the $40 a night I paid, even for high season. way overpriced for a dorm room of 10 people.

the hostel was VERY close to fira's bus station, which is a big plus, super clean, with a/c in the rooms, and in each room with its own bathroom and a little fridge to save your food, so you dont share it with the whole hostel, the staff is really nice and helpful, it has a kitchen where you can cook if you want. If I ever go back, i would definetly book again with them. :)
