Fantastic that the hostel has a free transfer to your airport terminal. We stayed for one night (between flights) and this place was a life-saver. A couple of pubs around as well for a night cap. Comfy beds and good security. Would definitely stay again.
Wonderful location, 7 minutes from Parissa beach (famous black sand). Internet actually worked in our room (to our surprise) and the air conditioner was heavenly. Check-out was nice and late (12noon) so you could leisurely ready yourself for leaving. Many restaurants and places to rent scooters/quads around. Fantastic :)
If they could this hostel would charge you for the air you breathe. You needed to buy a drink to sit by the pool, you needed to purchase a chair to sit by the sea and a .67 cent yogurt was 2 Euro at there 'mini market'. The restaurant has a a small selection of unhealthy fast food, even the veggie pita is stuffed with fries. Its more of an un-organized camp ground situated between 4 clubs (competing for loudness) with music blasting 24/7 so sleeping is quite difficult if not impossible.
Wonderful double bed private room, had a fridge, air conditioning, hot water shower, clean water (many of the greek islands attempt to de-salinate the water with poor results, not this one!), and a little patio with a table and chairs to eat meals on! The owner was very accommodating when asked if we could have a double room instead of a twin. Lovely staff cleaned and gave us fresh towels everyday. Just a 30 second walk to the market street!
This was a very nice place to stay and the A/C was wonderful at night. The slight drawbacks include: no laundry facilities, the advertised bar was indefinitely closed, no self-serve kitchen facilities (although they did have breakfast being served). Pros include: wonderful common area on a large outdoor (covered) patio, WiFi everywhere (even the rooms) no lock-out time. I would definitely recommend!
The only downside was that the owner requires that you call him to give an arrival time. We did not have a cell phone travelling so this was an annoyance, but the place is gorgeous, free breakfast and air conditioning (and your own remote!). Also the internet was temporarily down.
Air conditioned (with remote), lovely staff, no lock-out times (for our double bed shared bathroom private room), it was a lovely experience especially we were a bit sick (unrelated). When I alerted the staff to the cold shower, they promptly fiddled with the piping in the next room and the problem was fixed! They were very helpful and this is definitely worth the $ we paid :).
Out of the 12 countries we've visited we've never stayed at a hostel like this. The staff we're fantastic and over the top friendly. Having breakfast with Veeky (staff member) always put a smile on our face and started the day off great. Salvatore, the owner, made an amazing pasta dinner two of the four nights during our stay and was sure to introduce himself the second we arrived also offering us some lunch and fresh juice. Definitely a hostel highlight for our 5 month trip!! Highly recommended
This hostel was a wonderful choice. The owners were so helpful upon check-in, they immediately offered us a bottle of water (free!) as we were so exhausted from the heat outside! He gave us a map and a full layout of the city. It's air conditioned, Wi-Fi in the rooms, ensuite WC, free breakfast (with a good variety of items) and has a common room! Absolutely so pleased we stayed there!
Staff were exceptionally helpful with letting us borrow cutlery for breakfast even though we didn't purchase their breakfast. Just wonderful hospitality. Plus air conditioning!
Excellent hostel for coastal-seaside town. As long as you are fully aware of when their lock-out times are, it is a wonderful place. The air-conditioning is a helpful addition, although it is shut off at 6am everyday. The staff were extremely helpful: we wanted to book an extra night and they had room for my boyfriend but no more availability in the female dorm. The staff went out of their way to get a cot out for me just so we wouldn't have to move hostels! Very courteous.
This is a camping/tenting/cabin village. You will not need a tent if you book through HostelWorld, it is a tent-cabin they provide you with. The location has wonderful facilities, although no guest kitchen, there is a restaurant and market on site with fairly reasonable prices. I would absolutely stay there again and don't worry about the location; they have a shuttle that goes to and from Venice for 2.50 Eur one-way or 4 Eur both ways.
Although there were no lockers for bags, they provided you with a safe box for your valuables. The free breakfast is a buffet, but be aware its mainly leftover food from the previous day: hotdogs, salami, macaroni & cheese, potato salad, coleslaw, cheese, tea/coffee, cereal, toast, yogurt. Too bad there was no fruit, it was kinda heavy for the morning. The internet was dodgy too, only quick when few others were using it and only range enough for the main floor. Overall it was an okay hostel.
We generally enjoyed this hostel but a few things could be improved; more functional stove elements (there was only 2 working), alcohol should be allowed in the lounge/kitchen area, air conditioning inside the whole building should be set lower at night to help people sleep (some rooms don't have windows), rooms without windows should be provided with a fan. The staff were great, receptive to notification of the broken stove, but annoying with the alcohol ban and no noise passed 22:00.
Kitchen has a good working space, it is very large with multiple fridges (toaster oven too). 66 bed dorm is in a gymnasium with privacy barriers set up every 2 bunks with lockers (bring padlock). Nice showers and chill out area and internet (WiFi) was quick enough for Skype. Yes, would definitely recommend!
The optional buffet breakfast is 5 Eur; a bit expensive. If you bring your own food there is a guest kitchen and a wonderful courtyard/patio to enjoy too. Very, very affordable and 8min walk from the train station Berlin Ostbanhof. Would definitely recommend!
This place was just wonderful, it has three options for accommodation: 100-bed dorm tent, tent for floor sleeping, and tent pitching (if you brought one). Excellent atmosphere and on-site meals with a guest kitchen for cooking. Very affordable!
Maybe a guest kitchen would be worth some consideration? Other than that, very nice rooms and very nice staff!
Let me list what was below-par at Bedcelona: the women's one toilet at no toilet seat (for 32 people) and the last day it was purchased as a favour, the breakfast was not included but 1.50 Eur extra (not bad) but there was often not enough food, the rooms are not rooms (they are separated by a 3/4 wall that allows all light and noise to pass between rooms), air conditioner VERY noisy, they charge to leave your luggage before check-in and after check-out, etc. Simply put, we would not recommend.
When we arrived, we were told that our reservations were changed and that we could not longer be in the same room. After a bit of discussion, they were able to make it so we were in the same room for both nights, but I'm sure that resulted in someone else's reservation getting changed.
Wonderful hostel and the staff really do go out of their way to help you. When we had to leave at 8am for a train, the staff encouraged us to eat breakfast (free breakfast from 9-11am) even though it was before the serving time! Excellent showers too and the A/C in the rooms have remote controllers! Super free walking tour too!!
Rooftop patio to watch the sunset over Sevilla? AWESOME!! Plus each room had a remote for their air conditioner
We found out that any key from any other room will open your dorm. Not only that, but the dorms do not automatically lock when they close (only lock when user intentionally locks door from outside). The lock on my safe could open with any chiseled object turned in the slot. When I brought this to the attention of the staff on the first day, it was taken note of, but no action taken, nor was I given a new safe to use (room 305, bed 14).
Great if you like boat themed hotels

There is a make-shift kitchen with an over-stuffed fridge with rotting food. You would be lucky to put your items in and not have them stolen. Twice in 3 days our food was taken. After bringing it to the attention of the owners, I got a shug. If there were shelves installed as other hostels have, there would be less food theft. Do not leave any food in the kitchen. Smoking allowed in kitchen and in lounge. I normally don't mind cigarette smoke, but it was bad. Lastly, no lockers and no keys.
Did not follow though on this reservation, contacted hostel directly.
Our stay was wonderful, the hostel could use some rucksack lockers, but the safes were a nice plus for valuables. Excellent staff, very friendly! Wonderful location, almost beachside. The shuttle from Amsterdam was absolutely essential and very reasonably priced. Thanks for breakfast, would for sure stay again!
Lockers large enough for a camping backpack would have been very useful, but the safes helped well enough.
The debit/credit card machine either needs to be fixed or the staff using it need more training. Twice my credit card was charged in CAD dollars when the screen read only the payment in EUR. This was very frustrating for me since I bought my credit card specifically for travelling because it gives me a great rate for foreign currency conversion with no extra fees. When the receipt printed from the credit card machine, it read, "customer has chosen to pay in CAD dollars." I was given no choice.
Loved the showers, it felt like being at home again!
Unhelpful reception. Had previously called to ask to book an extra night but were told that we could not unless we were present at reception. The rooms are have the least space between horizontal beds we've ever encountered. We've been travelling for more than a month now so we are used to hostels. There are also no lockers in the rooms, this is a large security issue. Must be improved. Cereal must have at least two varieties, not just corn flakes. Some fruit product or yogurt would be helpful.
need a self-serve kitchen!
free use of the computers was so helpful, I cannot express how needed it was!
Free breakfast and large rucksack lockers would make it wonderful.
Could use some lockers in the rooms that fit rucksacks
Excellent free breakfast but ensuite bathroom mimicked a boat bathroom
Yeah... there were mice in the main restaurant/bar area after 12midnight. Not cool.
Wonderful place, but the mice come out after midnight.
Check-in after 1700 is kind of late. Coordination with the bus schedules would be helpful.
No free wifi, only pay-wifi
Loved your lounge/chill out room, very inviting!

Yeah, you need lockers. Under the bed cages are not helpful and provide a false sense of security.
