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.
Nice place, we like it very much.

Staff were not very friendly or helpful but the hostel itself is great. Air conditioning is not turned on until 10pm so it's impossible to be in the room before then. Hostel is kept clean and is only about a 3 minute walk to Perissa Beach
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.
The amenities are minimal, but so is the price. We were only there for one night and were overall pleased. There didn't seem to be much of a social atmosphere, though, so I wouldn't recommend this hostel for meeting people. They also didn't rent towels, which we thought was weird considering it's near a beach.
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 stayed in a private room, about 5-10 min up the road. Good value for money, esp during the high season on Santorini. Access to pool only for people staying in the private rooms. Air con and a mini fridge in the room were indispensable and we had a little balcony too.
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.
Youth Hostel is a minutes walk away from Perissa Beach. Mind if you don't have a single or double room you have to walk to the "pool" they have, but it was easy as a backpacker to meet fellow friends and enjoy my experience at Santorini. The staff is very helpful for planning trips to different places around the island or even get you situated with what you may need.
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!
reasonable price on this island there are a lot of crowed shops restaurants there.people are always crowded u need to hire a motorcycle for driving to Fira and Oia town.
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.
