You could not get better value for money than Markakis Studios. The location is excellent - 2 minutes walk to the main square. The staff could not be more accommodating and helpful and the standard of cleanliness is second to none. Considering there is a swimming pool and wifi and air conditioning are both provided free of charge, I was extremely impressed with this accommodation.

Perfect spot to stay if you are looking for budget accomodation in Fira. 5 minute walk to the cliff (caldera) edge where you get views of the sunset. Rooms have a kitchen so fantastic if you want to prepare your own meals. Bus stop close by and many cafés/restaurants less than 5 mins walk.


Great location, great facilities and would highly recommend this place.


Refrigerator, private bathroom, kitchen, clean!!


Good place close to everything, staff were super nice... Def recommend it!!


It was very enjoyable. Beautiful place to stay at. Only thing that was bad, was the water was very silky tasting. Wasn't pleasant to drink.


Markakis studio is a real good hostel. It was cheap, confortable, very located in the center of Fira (the "capital" of Santorini) and closed to the bus station where you can go everywhere in the island. The personnel is thoughtful and gives good advices. Only one thing to improve : the noise of the furniture moved by the people in the others studios. I would suggest to stick some cloth pads under the furniture.


The staff at Markakis Studios were extremely helpful and polite. The rooms were clean and it is walking distance to anywhere in Fira. The rooms are very private as they all open to the outside, so you rarely run into other guests. This can be good or bad depending on what you want.
