The staff were all great, especially Poppy who was very accommodating. I was moved last minute to a different location, away from the facilities with the pool etc but I wasn't after a busy hostel atmosphere so it suited me fine. Probably would've been annoyed if I wanted to socialise though. On the plus side it was a little closer to Thira and there were some nice local restaurants which the staff were helpful in pointing out. Also gave us a airport transfer at 2am for our 4am flight.

We had such a great stay at Villa Manos! They picked us up at the port, when we got there,Poppy welcomed us, with tips and suggestions,very friendly and helpful (there was always someone available) The place is really close to the bus stop, and walking distance to Fira, which was really handy. Our room was great, we had everything we needed, the pool area was really nice too.Our return, was after checkout 1:25 in the morning, and we still got a lift to the port, so that was really nice of them!

Me and my girlfriend loved our stayed in Villa Manos because they are very helpful and clean! When we arrived in Santorini they sent a transfer to pick up us for free to the Hostel and there they showed us everything that we needed know about Santorini,a good and cheaper restaurant,a very nice place to rent a Motorcycle or ATV....the Hostel are located in Karterados that's 15 minutes by foot from Thira (FIRA) or 3 minutes by motorcycle, there has a supermarket 8 minutes by foot.

This place is pretty nice and cheap. The lady who runs the place is named Poppy and she will take care of you. 2 things to note: 1) there isn't much in the immediate area so you will need to take a bus to go anywhere, but there is a bus stop close by. 2) the pool and outside bar are nice, but it can be noisy up until 1am, so it might be annoying if want to sleep early.

Poppy and her husband are amazing. They are always worried if we are doing well and always ready to help with anything we need Even after we checked out they let us use the pool and they took us to the port even though it was after midnight. This is a great place to stay and from now on every time I go back to Santorini this is the place that I am going to book.

Could not have been better! Wonderful people who catered to our every need. The best hostel I've ever stayed at. It was more like a resort...so wonderful!

We absolutely loved staying at Villa Manos for 4 nights. Poppy was incredibly helpful and the pool area was fantastic. Our room was also very modern and clean. The value for your money is excellent. We rented an ATV to scoot around the island and found that it was a great way to explore the surrounding beaches and other towns. Thanks for everything! -Alexa & Carlos

Can't say enough nice things about this place! They greet you with a glass of wine and send you off with a full bottle of wine! The owners are so friendly and helpful to anyone who asks. She even wouldn't let me leave until she took a picture with me! ;) Such a nice place! You MUST stay here!

One of the best places I've stayed at, absolutely great value for money. Huge rooms and great facilities around the villa like the swimming pool with the amazing view of the sea. Would go back in a heartbeat. The hosts Poppy and her husband were such warm and friendly individuals it made such a difference staying there.

BEST HOSTEL EVER!!!


94%

Really enjoyed my stay here at Villa Manos! Really wish I could of stayed longer as the staff was very friendly and helpful and the facilities were very nice and clean. The hotel is located close to the airport and the hotel provides free shuttle service to and from either the port or airport. Getting to the cities near the shore requires a short bus ride, however, transit is very simple on Santorini. A good value and I look forward to staying here again in the future! Thanks Poppy!

Normally, I wouldn't take the time to review a hostel, but Villa Manos warranted a review. Everything about our stay here was exceptional. We were picked up from the airport and driven back to the airport at 6am and 11pm courtesy of the staff. The bath is spa quality. They allowed us to stay an extra night, and helped us plan a tour. Mrs. Poppy is the friendliest woman ever and gave us a free bottle of wine and took pictures with us prior to our departure. Stay here if you go to Santorini!
