The hosts are extremely nice and offered us a ride back to the port even though we switched hostels towards the end (we switched because they were booked up).
The hostel was decent, but nothing spectacular. They couple who run the place are very nice though, and John picks you up and drops you off at the port which is great as it's pretty far. The location Perissa is a bit far from the really big well-known towns of Fira and Oia but Perissa also has it's own black sand beach nearby which you can walk to, so that's a plus. Also there's a decent supermarket and bakery nearby and some restaurants/cafes around the area within walking distance.
Great place to stay! Had a fabulous pool area which was a wonderful place to chill and relax in the heat. Beds were clean and comfortable. The dorm suited us perfectly! Loved being so close to the beach! Not much nightlife though. Would be great in a big group!!
Excellent location, and they pick you up at your arrival point.
Staff (family) is amazingly friendly and welcoming, they go above and beyond to make your stay even better. This hostel is a good location to walk to the Parissa Beach area. There you can lounge on the beach all day, or have some drinks & dance at night. There is also a great Super Market and Bakery very close by. The fridge in my room was an added bonus. And since their son owns the ATV/Scooter rental (which has good prices) he can arrange day rentals for you. Enjoyed my stay. Thanks!
John picked me up free of charge which was nice considering i was arriving at 1am and I am a single female traveller.
Comfortable and very good value for money. Bus to Fira is right outside, supermarkets basically across the road. Very much appreciated being picked up by John at 4:30am! :)
Amazing helpful staff, best of any hostel I have stayed at, good atmosphere and price
Cheap and cool for a booking in the south of the island
