It was a struggle for us to find this hostel because it was in the other side of the island of Santorini. But other than that, it is a good place to stay in. It is probably one of the best hostel we have ever stayed in. The rooms are very big and spacious and they even had a pool that was open 24/7. My friends and I had a great time swimming and playing games in the pool.
The staff were really pleasant and the pool is wonderful, bus stop only around the corner and runs all night into fira but is a little while out. We did book a twin private ensuite and thought it was strange they asked us if a stranger could share our room for one night.. And the private ensuite was not in the room but out across the hall way and other people used it and we came back to one night and it was disgusting covered it dirt..
Place is very close to the beach, few minute walk. Nice pool area with wifi access. If you get a room close enough to the pool you can get wifi in the room as well! Staff was always saying good morning and smiling. Felt like a home away from home! Originally booked for 4 nights but stayed a week in total to explore the island. One extra tip, there is a tour/ rental office on the corner of the street that you can see from the hotel which had cheaper tour prices then the hotel offers!!
Shower head was broken otherwise everything else worked fine
The bathroom is ridiculous and the girl who works at the reception is completely lost but the facilities are great.
Nice place to stay, we had a room with a small kitchenette in it. It was a bit crammed but still comfy. The hotel is actually closer to Perivolos than Perissa, but it is still just a short walk to the beach and to an awesome grocery store as well as different restaurants.
It was fine if you are looking for a place to sleep and have a way around on your own. It is a good 10-15min walk from the beach, so know that ahead of time. We rented a car and that worked out well for going and seeing the sights in Fira, Oia, and around Perissa. It would have been difficult to get places from here by bus or taxi as nothing is that close. The outdoor pool and bar area is nice, and having a patio was fun! They would not drive us to the airport, so you need to find own ride.
