Jimmys was definitely an experience. Our room was amazing so nice to go back to after a long night out. It was in a really nice location as well. Just off the beach and right near some great resturaunts. The roof top terrace was also gorgeous for sunset!!
If in Paros stay at Jimmy's Hostel, no questions asked. The family run hostel provided the perfect balance between comfort and enjoyment. The communal areas are designed perfectly and everyone connected to the place are of the kindest nature. They made me feel at home and that allowed for me to have the best Paros experience imaginable.
I had the best stay here !! Maria is so kind and helpful and so are the rest of the staff ! :) very good place to meet people for a solo traveller :) 5 minute walk to the beach it was a fantastic place and will most definitely be back :)
A friend and I stayed in the dorm rooms for some nights and we loved it. The rooms are very clean and the facilities are so good that it almost feels like staying at a hotel. However, the atmosphere is one of a perfect hostel with a fantastic rooftop where you easily meet other travellers as well as very nice and friendly staff. Maria is fantastic! I would've to stay at Jimmys hostel again and warmly recommend it to other travellers.
The staff were incredibly friendly and very down-to-the-point, which made me feel very welcomed. The location was absolutely amazing. However, my roommates kept shutting off the air conditioning in the middle of summer so the room's got really hot and humid, AND one of them was sick! She was basically encouraging her germs to spread around; gross. Also, there is no lock box or locker, so have a good hiding spot for your valuables! Overall, I'd rate this place a B+.

Great place, Pyros is a cool island, and the hostel was super social and fun.
Great hostel with a relaxed atmosphere. At night everyone goes to the roof patio to drink and then go out. Good for a solo traveler.
One of the best Hostels I've ever stayed in, absolutely beautiful building, amazing staff and great atmosphere When you get of the port you'll see a crazy Greek man shouting 'JIMMY'sSSSSS' - That's ur guy! Maria is the daighter of Jimmy and co-runes hostel with him- she was literally the sweetest tiny little bird! So kind and genuine an phenomenally good at her job! Really looks after her guests and is always smiling - makes the hostel!
Really enjoyed our stay, rooms were Villa like which was a nice change. Only fault was the kitchen, lacks in some basic equipment like a toaster. Also the knives are blunt. Other then that a great place.
Loved my stay at jimmy's! Great atmosphere at night on the rooftop. Facilities were great in both the rooms and the common area. Maria was lovely and always there if you had any questions. Cant wait to go back!
Friendliest staff and very clean!
Jimmys hostel is exactly what you would hope a hostel would be! I only booked one night and stayed 3... Family owned, such a lovely atmosphere with everyone sitting on the rooftop in the evening, great location, rooms and bathrooms are cleaned daily, so good having a kitchenette in the dorm room. Thank you to Maria for always wearing a huge smile, so helpful :)
After traveling Europe for seven weeks this was easily my favorite hostel. I originally booked three nights and ended up staying for eight. The building itself is beautiful and the rooms are really nice, they all have ensuite bathrooms and private terraces. But the coolest thing about this place is the vibe. Drinks on the roof every night while watching the sunset never gets old. Jimmy and his daughter Maria do a fantastic job of running this place and I will definitely be back!

Very great atmosphere here. Rooftop terrace where everyone goes to drink for the night. Big kitchen to use. Very fun and awesome place to be
From check in we didn't feel very welcome here. On arrival we were lectured about hostel rules - not really a very warm welcome and nothing was shared about the island or what to do.. Secondly we weren't picked up from the port which was one of the reasons we booked. On our first day I was having a nap in our room when I was awoken by a girl who had our keys and was looking around our room --- seriously not a very secure place. We were very happy to leave.
Great stay, close to the beach and our room was clean and nice.
Booked the 3 bed private room. When we arrived we found out that we were not at this hostel but at a different property that was near by which we were not too happy about. The other property was okay, but there was not AC as advertised and the staff would always be entering our room. When checking in I was told to leave an ID and they would put it in their broken safety deposit box that anyone could walk up to and hit the button to open. Location was really good.
Awesome stay at Jimmy's!! Helpful staff, great location less than 5 mins walk to beachfront in Parikia. Picked us up and dropped us at port which was really easy and convenient. They have a great balcony common area and loved the private balcony in our room. Would definitely stay again!
Loved this place! Super friendly staff, very clean, very quiet! Plenty of people to talk to whether it be in the lobby or on the roof top.I originally booked for 4 nights but turned up a day late, Maria looked after me, even though she could have easily and rightfully charged me for the time I had booked for. So I am very thankful! Would definitely go back!
Perfect place to fill our needs in paros. Big rooms and often balconies as well. The rooftop terrace is definitely the best bit!
