Recently stayed at the Pink Palace for 5 nights. First look we honestly wanted to leave. Yes it was off season but the place looked run down and not what was advertised. Lucky for us we made friends with some of the workers there and had the best 5 days away. In fact we didn't want to leave. Yes the place is run down and some of the activities don't run right but it's what you make of it! Cheers to the bar staff and the social people for making it the best holiday by the beach!
The staff are terrible at this hostel. It is not clean and needs some work. It is a seedy place and never will return. Beach is terrible with big rocks. Rooms terrible. Beds too hard and air con not working. However dinner was good but breakfast had flys swarming all over it. The down is abt 40 mins by bus. Difficult to get spot on bus as not all that regular and packed. They charge 5euro each to go on shuttle nus to airport but only depends on whether they have pick-up in towm.

Pretty average place. Free dinners are good though
Thought we had booked a room for six people but was given a private room which was absolutely wonderful. The dinner was probably the best food we ate on the entire trip. Unfortunately, we were here during low season so it was not such a good party, but the two female bartenders were really funny and made our stay better. Easy to get to and from the hostel with the mini bus which the hostel offer. Would like to come back during the high season because I think it would be really fun.
A place that has clearly seen its g(l) ory days. More like a resort that caters to a young and naive audience, with the staff continuously pushing everyone to drink and participate in activities that are so rehearsed it becomes slightly pathetic. For the male staff members, the ultimate drive for even working at the hostel seems to be to work their way into as many girls' pants as possible, often in a quite demeaning and outright predator-like fashion. Food was great though.
I have to tell this place is highly recommended to anyone who is backpackers or couples. Never been a hostel before like this. They are well organised and really caring about their guests. At start I needed a transfer from them as I arrived later and no local bus on Sunday evening that time. They picked me up from the airport and other arrivals too. Check-in went easily. Very nice food all the time-great value for money,delicious dinner! Helped my suitcase down to the room and up too.

Arrived expecting a party hostel but the place was fairly empty. Staff tried to get activities going at night but failed which meant guests were mostly drinking by their rooms. Highlight was breakfast & dinner. My room was in the main building which allowed easy access to bar and beach. Room: small and dated but adequate. Shout out to the Albanian guy who served the eggs & bacon - he was always happy. It was nice to be greeted w/ a smile and friendly face each morning as some staff were rude.
Great experience, very social and fun atmosphere and I enjoyed making a lot of new friends! Great food, great location and great excursions:)
500 characters isn't enough. Had to take a taxi (35€) after midnight because the shuttle doesn't pick up after 1130pm. The staff aren't the most helpful - they want you to stay at the pink palace. It's like a compound. Great value for a double room with en suite however bathroom was beyond disgusting. Staff are pushy to drink and call you lame if you don't. The booze cruise is all about drinking (obviously). the food though was awesome - free breakfast and dinner.
The breakfast and dinner really made this hostel different from other party hostels. Also the onsite quad rentals were awesome!
Definitely a party hostel! Such good value for money with the breakfast and dinner included. Meals were actually really nice! Fun activities and nights at the palace daily. Rooms cleaned daily with fresh sheets and towels. All staff are so friendly and made my time even better, Asi I'm talking about you girl! Would definitely recommend the pink palace
Pros: -Great place to party for young people. -Free shuttle when you arrive. -The included meals are great. Cons: - No lockers in the rooms, only small ones at the reception. -Rooms are dirty and are barely cleaned. Toilets never flush. -Far from Corfu town. -The activities offered are overpriced.
Had a great week with a friend at the pink palace. Staff were friendly and met some awesome people. Extremely short walk to a lovely village and the tours provided are amazing, be sure to do the kayaking. Facilities, in rooms etc, are run down but didn't mind as we didn't spend the days in there anyway!!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the pink palace - everything we expected & more! Not the best wifi but good to be disconnected from the world. 99% of staff were friendly - few grumpy receptionists that shouldn't be sitting there if their not willing to assist with questions. Would definitely recommend to others & met some amazing people here! The food - amazing, 'fried eggs & bacon' hangover cure, the dinners never let you down!
