The whole time I was there the only two toilets available for the rooms were not working (and the owners did nothing about it when I told them they were broken at the beginning of my one week stay). The stench was then abysmal in the toilets. The hall didn't look very clean and the staff was smoking all the time in this area, which I found rather unpleasant. Easy access to one beach. However, if you want to travel by bus BEWARE, you have to climb a very STEEP slope for about 20-30 minutes.
Very friendly and nice people, it's a familiar atmosphere and the house is just wonderful some meters above the seaside. They picked us up from the airport to Pelekas and a warm meal for dinner a tasty breakfast is included in the price. The households are speaking fluently English so they can help you around with any problems. Only the rooms are very basic but clean and with this view and the sea nearby you won't spend many time there at all ;-) We definitely would come back! Meike

The staff was rude with me. The wifi works just on common areas, moreover, it was not good there. In the dinner, the greek salad was really good, but the main dish was not traditional greek food and, also, the breakfast we can choose only one thing. The beach close to the hostel is good but if you want to visit other beaches and you don't drive, it is my case, i dont recommend. The swimming pool was empty.
The location is stunning for the views and also the quick and easy access to the sandy beach. The working farm that the famly run gives a great insight into the local produce and tradition. The evening meal which is included in the price is served after the sunset which can be seen from the communal terrace. The meal time was a good place to meet and talk to fellow travellers. Good food, showers, rooms and wine!!! The only complaint I heard was that people had only booked for one night!
this is what hostelling is about, meeting people eating together and sharing stories/drinks. There are a few inconveniences like the bees but it's rather easy to get over and Spyros goes into town at least twice a day so it's fairly easy to get in and out.
Corfu is a really nice place, and all that you want to do ia relax, but during the stay we got some problems, the shower had only cold water, the wifi don't works properly (never worked from the room), and the bus stop is really far walking up hill. The pros are the dinner served, the volunteers working there are really kind, in front there is a nice beach and the transfer provided from the hostel to the airport
