We didn't have the friendliest greeting by the staff. Our room was good & had a little balcony, however no wifi in the rooms which was a bit frustrating. The location is perfect right near the beach & short walk to the the main shops & restaurants
very good location (beach and downtown ), helpful staff

The hostel was fabulous (as was Naxos)! Very central and at a fabulous price! The guy who picked us up and looked after us during our stay was super friendly and very hard working!!!
One really great staff member who seemed to do everything as was so overworked he had no time to offer advice. Basic but everything you need and convenient location.
Great location. Twenty meters from the sand and a short walk from the ferry port and city center. However there is no wifi in the rooms and no shower curtain in the bathrooms so they are always flooded. It would have been nice to have safes in the rooms too. I felt like it was too easy for someone to break in.
The staff is difficult to communicate with due to both the language barrier and their slightly unenthusiastic attitude towards their guests. The room was pretty spacious with just 4 beds, a little terrace, a kitchenette and bathroom... it was the all female dorm! It was pretty clean, the only bad part being that I saw a cockroach in the room. Right on the beach, wifi does not work in the room, felt very safe on the island.
Great service with transfers to and from the port..most places will just take you on the way to the hotel! Very good value

wifi does not work in the room, even my mobile network. good to have a fridge in the room. very close to the beach. staffs are nice and helpful. the hotel is not new, i think there is better options in the same area. overall is ok.
We stayed in one of the dorms. The room was spotless, had a little kitchen and fridge (great for saving money by making your own food), a very clean bathroom and the best aircon of the holiday. We were picked up from the port, the beach is barely 1 minutes walk away, and it's an easy walk to the waterfront where there are amazing restaurants and cocktail bars. The only downside is that it was quite hard to meet new people in the hotel, but otherwise I would definitely stay here again.
Great location by the beach but the shower was way too small. The rooms were always cleaned with fresh towels and there was a safe in the lobby for valuables. Definitely would recommend for people on a budget!
Definitely a decent hostel, but considering the beautiful rooms (even private rooms) available at a comparable price right nearby in Naxos, I would only recommend this to those looking for an affordable backpacker spot. The common room was ideal for meeting people but beware that this is not just a youth hostel and that wifi only works in the lobby. Request a ride / pickup from the port before you arrive - otherwise you may end up roaming a bit to find where Soula is!
Wifi could not be get into the dorm, had to go to the common area to use it. Nevertheless, it was compensated with cleanliness of the hostel and towels were provided. Its more like a hotel stay than a hostel. Port-hotel transfer was provided by the staff. Location is good as it is near the square and the beach.
Staff weren't there to check me in all day (and night), but luckily another resident let me in the room! They did offer ferry drop off the following day and the room was nice if a little dusty (I know it was off-season and extremely quiet however, so I imagine the place would be very different at high season.
Michael is the best receptionist ever. Friendly, helpful and very polite. :)
