We where charged a full amount regardless of the deposit we already paid on booking. We booked a 3 bed room but were put in a 4 bed room. We even got a roommate totally untold and unprepared. The toilet was broken and nobody even came to see the problem when told. Unacceptable! There were no road signs for this hostel. Extremely hard to find. The staff were prone to mood changes. They were trying to look Rock 'n' Roll cool but unfortunately they weren't. The property is way up the hills.
This is the second time I have stayed in Vraxos, when I got there I was warmly welcomed. The family who run it are great and the staff are friendly, usually with some backpackers working there for a little while before moving on. The location is a bit out of the way from town but it's not too difficult to get too. The beach is 2 minutes walk away and is absolutely stunning. As is the sunset from the patio outside :) For 10€ per night (an extra 10 if you want breakfast and dinner) it's a bargain.
Our stay in the hostel was awesome. We planned to stay only for two nights but we stayed for four nights. The family is really welcoming and you feel like at home. The food is amazing and the "family" dinner is a good way to get to know people in the hostel. The hostel is in a incredibly beautiful place though getting there is a bit hard. Totally worth the effort! The bathrooms were sometimes a bit mess but the atmosphere definately compensates for the shortages. We are definately coming back!

Vrachos was AMAZING!! Gorgeous view of the Mediterranean, amazing home-cooked organic food straight from the family's farm, fantastic staff AND less than 5 minutes walking from the hostel to the beach. Worth every penny and more!!! I can't wait to return to my home away from home in Corfu!
