For the amount of money I spent this place was the best value I've ever got for my money. They have great food options all around as well as the cheapest ATV, Scooter rentals right next door. John one of the owners even gave us a ride to the port the morning we left. If you're traveling on a budget I highly recommend this place. It was a nice stay.

John was great and gave us a free transfer to the port even though we didn't qualify!

We moved hostel to be in a closer location and this was not accurate on the hostel app. Locals couldn't even help us find it. They did help us by driving us to the port but atmosphere and facilities aren't great.

I had a positive experience at Katerina and John's. The pre-arrival communication managed by Rich was efficient and smooth, and upon arrival John was very hospitable and nice, despite having a slight language barrier. The room was clean and fully functional, with a nice big fridge and a balcony overlooking the pool. While the location isn't the best for travellers who prefer the main parts of Santorini, ie Fira and Oia, Perissa has its own peaceful and quiet charm.

Definitely good value for money. It was right near the black sand beach, had a great supermarket and bakery nearby, was near a quad bike hire that had great deals, and had busses running from right outside the door. The rooms/facilities were nothing too flash- the bathroom light was broken so we showered in pitch black, but they had aircon which was nice. Overall, definitely good value for money.

There were ever all problems about the place . There were lockers , but they didn't prevent you that you need a padlock, otherwise they are worthless. About the shuttle system, they don't have every night , so you should be prevented.there's no luggage room, but the Madame was nice and let me put my things in the reception. The mixed rooms didn't have key, so there was no security to be there. They heve a nice freezer and good place to cook inside the rooms.

It was such a great place and John and Katerina are amazing! They are super flexible and make you stay on Santorini totally great. There is a store, a 24 hour bakery, and an ATV rental shop all right next door and is in a super great location to go down to the beach!

Location is out of the way, but in my opinion an ATV is needed to really explore the island anyways, so its worth it to safe the money and have a slightly longer ride. Pool is nice as well.

Everything is just basic especially the toilet. There is a few sockets in the dorm. There is a swimming pool , benches with sockets nearby in the common area. WiFi , warm water is ok.

It is easy to rent a vehicle of some sort to get to different destinations on the island and there is a nice beach within walking distance. The downside was that our room smelled musty, the beds and pillows were quite old, and the sheets and towels looked dirty from stains.

A common kitchen for the use of all tenants with a water kettle and a microwave would be a great addition to your already amazing facilities.

The value for money was incredible. Given how cheap it was, it really wasn't that bad. However, there was really no lock on the door to the hostel or the room, and the bathrooms were not very good. It's kind of far from the center of the island but it is right near the beach and some bars. Overall pretty good for what you were paying!

Friendly and helpful hosts along with big and comfortable rooms made the stay enjoyable. It is about 600m from the black beach which offers a nice sunrise.

Very friendly and helpful staff with pickup/dropoff at airport and port. Amazing value for the money we paid. A common kitchen/stove/hot plate is missing tho. And the internet connection isnt the best so no Skype (this might be due to the overall connection on the island tho, i dont know).

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi, thank you for the polite comments. You are correct about the wifi, we are waiting for OTE to upgrade connection, so wifi can be spotty, but that is on the whole island as well.

Stayed at the 6 bed apartment. The apartment is comfortable, with small kitchen and balcony. The rate is cheap and very close to bus stop, 24 hours bakery and supermarket. John was very nice, picked us up from the port at 1 am, and sent us to the airport too. Very sweet of him. The staff there was very helpful too, took some time to explain to us the attractions and helped arrange for rental car. The place is also very near to Perissa Beach. Value for money.

This was a great hostel. Katerina and John were so lovely. John even dropped us off at the ferry port. The pool is a bonus! it is across from a 24/7 bakery ...it is so good. You have to get a bus to the centre of town ...but I suggest hiring an ATV next door. So cheap!
