everything is alright, just too noisy with ATVs and bikes cruising across at large volumes.

Rooms were clean, bathrooms for shared dorms were quite dirty but what you'd expect for the price of the room. The location is amazing if you like the beach and cheap authentic food! Really chill vibes around Perissa, I'd highly recommend staying there if you want to get out of the hustle and bustle. Only half hour bus to the centre of santorini really easy to get to.

You always have to take a 20min bus to Fira and from Fira, you can take another bus to various other locations. It wasnt too bad, staff were friendly and we had a private room. We could only get airconditionning from 11pm then had to return the aircon remote. If they advertised a pool, there werent any. Close walk to the black beach, which was the best beach on the island.

There is no facilities in the hostel except your bed and some table in front of the reception. It would be fun to have a better chilling rooms to talk with the people. But...for 5 euros the night, i will say nothing more negatif...because i save so much money ! ahha Free Transfert is great to! But dont make more affair with the hostel. Go talk with the touriste agency for the volcano tour and for rent a car!

You get what you pay for. The bed was rock hard. They couldn't possibly keep up with the amount of dirt that gets tracked into the bathrooms by only cleaning them once a day, they should do it more than that. Showers were pretty disgusting, but because other guests make them so. Not a lot of privacy in them either. No real common area or bar, just a restaurant across the street. Best location though! Outside of busy city, 5 min walk to beach, all u need around u. 15 min by bus to Fira

Paid €9 for a 4 bed dorm room with bathroom which was excellent value. Pretty basic but perfect for what I needed and a 5min walk to beach

It's definately a party hostel as a I got back around 11 at night and there were people up drinking ready to either head out or stay up for a big night. Hard to sleep with the noise. I guess it depends on what you're there for. You get what you pay for.

Very nice hostel near the perissa beach. Heard from some girls that they left their cellphones charging and were both stolen :/ The staff are all gentle and helpful. Right next to the hostel you can rent motorbikes, cars, quadbikes... for a nice price(15eur-24h). Good restaurant in the front with discount for guests.

We rented a transfer with them and the guy of the hostel kicked my luggage because the place in the van was not enough. We don't recommend this service at all.

This hostel is in a great location, really close to the beach and near the bus stop into the main town which can be explored in a day. There is also a quad/scooter rental place right beside the hostel which is great. The staff were very nice and the hostel offered free pick up from the port which was brilliant. There is an outdoor seated area where people can get together for a few drinks and there's a good atmosphere. Would definitely recommend this place

Good place to stay on the island on budget and close to the beach. But it is still a little disappointing that I didn't manage to have a hot shower of the three nights I stayed.

The large dorm downstairs is very spacious and has fabulous storage lockers, but the shower situation is not very good - cold water is much more common than hot and the floors are pretty dirty. BUT for the price, you really can't get anything better! If you don't like cold showers then don't stay here, but a seasoned traveler will definitely value the super low price even if it means sacrificing a bit of warm water.

if you like to stay in the beach, is the best place. really cheap and good service.

The staff from the hostel is really helpful, you can ask them anything you want to need about the island and they will help you, also, the fact that they pick you up from the port is really nice because is kind of far from the hostel. The location is far from Oia but is next to Perissa Beach The ensuite room was really clean and had its own bathroom. Comfortable beds and lockers. The only inconvinience is WiFi signal was low in the room but you can have good signal in the terrace.

Advice: if you are a heavy sleeper, don't mind a ton of loud noise, then get a room on the middle level and you will share a room with a lot of people! Luckily, I was in a room on the upper level, shared a room with 3 other people and had our own bathroom, which was nice!! You are located on a busy street and have a bar across the street=noise. BUT only a short walk to the amazing beach, tons of shopping and great restaurants!! Also, super close to bus stop and market. Nice and helpful staff.

Not a great hostel by any means, but it is among the best budget options on Santorini. It is far from everything accept food places. Perissa beach is just a pale shadow of Kamari beach in my opinion. If there is a hostel available in kamari beach, I would go there instead. The staff is surprisingly unhelpful and not very welcoming. The dorm rooms get smelly at night and in the moring. You should go there if a bed is what you need, but don t expect much.

Atrocious - one of the worst hostels I've ever stayed at. No facilities, common area was outside next to a major road, the main lady working there was rude and unhelpful, bathroom was filthy, internet hardly worked at all, and when I tried to shorten my stay with over 48 hours notice the lady completely refused a refund (as they demanded payment on arrival). My friend stayed at a place over in Fira which was way, way better, I think it was called Fira Backpackers - stay over there instead.
