This hostel is full of mold, you can smell it as soon as you checked in and you'll feel it as you stay for a couple hours. The bathroom is dirty as well. I would not recommend anyone staying here because mold is very harmful to your health.

The best bit of the hostel is its central location on Santorini Island in Fira Town and only a couple of minutes walk to te bus station. It means you can get anywhere on the island fairly quickly by public transport. Dorm beds were comfy with air con and good quality lockers. Each bed had a socket to charge your phone which was helpful. The lady that gives travel advice was very friendly and extremely helpful. There was also a small swimming pool to cool down in. Overall a very good hostel.

Very convenient location 2 mins from the bus station in thira. The hostel is pretty grungy but it is cleaned every day. With a bit of work it could be something great! Pool area was nice and staff were very helpful.

Not sure why this hostel had so many bad reviews. It is perfectly clean. It has AC and laundry. The location can't be beat. It has a nice atmosphere. The staff is okay - not super friendly, though they were somewhat helpful. One of the staff guys was angry a lot and yelled at people. Not ideal that you have to pay in cash. Otherwise, I had a good stay and would stay here again.

AWESOME LOCATION right by bus stop. You need to use the Fira bus stop to commute to anywhere else on the island so that was a huge plus. There is a POOL which was super nice to jump in after a day running around the island. The energy is great at this hostel and the people are very friendly. Had some super old people in the room though and I think that if youre over 50 you should have a private room, but that could just be me.

We paid 130€ a night for a private room here, the rooms smelled, the shower and toilet were broken, when we talked to the staff about it they didn't care and just palmed us off. They advertise a pool, but it is no bigger than a spa. The place was just not good value for money, if you are going to pay that much for accommodation, go somewhere nicer with views or closer to the beach
