Staff could have been more friendly/welcoming but overall a good value hostel. Nice large rooms. Could have had better wifi (didn't work in downstairs dorms). Offers cheaper tours that pick up from hostel.
On a main road so very noisy day and night. Dorm sharing so don't expect comfort and privacy. The woman on reception (who I think is Anna) is a bit miserable and I had to argue with her to get an extension lead for our room as there was only one charging point between 12 of us. This place is dirt cheap for Santorini so don't expect much, you get what you pay for. There's a tour office 2 doors down that do some cheap and cheerful boat trips. €20 for the whole island, volcano, hot springs.
Out of city but close to one of the very popular beaches! Can do day trips into the city however bus system is very weak in the area! Hostel is great for what you pay...everything you need.
We were put in a 12 bed dorm but we booked a 10 bed. The door to the room leads out onto a main road and did not lock. It is VERY noisy and difficult to sleep. The toilet doors did not have locks. There were only two toilets for all the girls at the hostel but they were clean. As it was not what we booked, we decided to leave after one night of no sleep. When we explained our problem to reception she laughed and then pretended not to understand English but did call us a taxi eventually.

Awful hostel, theres literally no facilities (like kitchen, common room etc) so there's nowhere to chill. The wifi was also awful and you couldn't get it in the rooms plus you're mile from the big town- it literally felt like the wilderness. The staff are nuts, the woman at reception screamed at me down the phone FOR NO REASON, then we got to the hostel and she pretended like nothing happened because she knew what she'd done was mental. This hostel put a huge downer on our trip. Don't stay here!
We had a good stay at hostel Anna, its close tothe beach, the atlas restaurant across the road is great and you get 15% off. The beds aren't te most comfy but ok for the price! The main dissappoinment was that the pool Shown in the photos is only available if you book a private room. We arrived really excited about a dip in the pool after a long boat ride to be told we weren't allowed to use it. This should be made clear in the description for the hostel.
We were a couple staying in a private room. Really good value for money in the private rooms. Located about 5min walk up the road from the other part of the hostel, the private rooms have an awesome pool and pool area to use! Bakery, supermarket and cheap Gyros close by. About 5-10min walk down to the beach. Bed made fresh everyday. Picked up from the ferry for free - and dropped back off for a small fee (3€).
Very clean, close to the beach and bus stop from firA, staff was very welcoming and if you have any questions theyll amwser them. They offer 2 tours/day, very cheap. Suggested to anyone!
Everything was alrite ! Not the best hostel to stay but wouldnt mind stayin here again!
Amazing atmosphere, great deals, 10/10 would stay again and recommend to anyone who wants to have a chill fun time. Atlas across the street is also such a gem. Loved this place, made my time in Santorini!
This hostel was so friendly, the staff were really accommodating! I was in a 14 bed dorm which sounds like a lot but at no point was it too unruly or loud. I had a great stay. It was pretty well cleaned, I would only say maybe the bathrooms cool have been better and more showers/toilets as the mens room was quite cramped but over all had a great experience, it was close to everything you can need at Perissa. The wifi is only available at reception and if too many people are out it doesn't work.
You should give the actual location for the facility for those who are not taking a ferry across (airplane). I do not appreciate the fact that when I asked, all that I received in terms of location was Perissa, Santorini (which is a big place to search while carrying 40-50 lbs). The fact that there were only two plugs for a dorm of 12 was a pain too. Washrooms were cramped, and always out of toilet paper after 5pm. I was kind of disappointed with this place
The bathrooms were really gross but the rooms were nice. The hostel is a bit far from activities on the island beyond the beach. Very close to beach and cheap food. Wish the bathrooms were better. The vibe was also sort of odd.
They take the remote for the ac every morning. And they won't turn the ac on for you until 11pm. Staff weren't very friendly nor helpful. You get what you pay for.

Everything was great (especially the pool) except for the MASSIVE cockroaches we kept on finding.
Great stay if your on a budget. I would recommend paying a little extra for a 4 bed dorm with ensuite as the shared bathroom for the other dorms had few showers and toilets. The bed was comfortable, the dorm was spacious & soundproof with secure lockers. The wifi only worked in the reception area & a/c only provided at night. The staff were kind and the free transfer from the port was a bonus. The bathrooms could be cleaned more often and locks on the toilet doors would be appreciated.
Will separate between private and shared rooms, cause they are absolutely different and I stayed in both. Private rooms: they are in a different area, with swimming pool, air conditioner, private bathroom, and are just amazing value for the money! Really recommend it. Clean, well located, just great Shared rooms: Still great value for the money, take the 10 euros one instead of 9 euros, it is only one euro difference and you will have way less beds (4 instead of 8-12) and also own bathroom
Everything is all right just the last night which is a firday night, there is so noisy of the common area just outside of my room( and i am the bed really close to the door) until midnight 2:00 i guess, and the light is still on.... I am a deep sleeper and still woke up by the girls laughing voice. That night is such terrible. But actually the staff is nice and they bring us directly to the hostel from the port. But just that night make me feel so bad.

clean and friendly. There's discounts all around the hostel if you stay here. it's a bit far from cities with nightlife but take a bus there for 2,20 and a cab back for 20. very close to the beach, about a 5 min walk.
The perfect beach location!! Easy to get around in the islands with a bus station just 20 meters from the hostel or you can rent a Quad, (recommendation). The only bad thing for me is the lack of facilities. There's no kitchen or fridge and there's not enough girls toilet for the 10 bed dorms.
