The hostel is clean basically but lacks facilities. Slow wifi, very slow computer, no kitchen. But it would be a good place to stay if you just need a bed to sleep as it's just 10 euros a day.

Anny Studios - Perissa Beach, Santorini, Greece

Great hostel. Free swimming pool, free ac, free computers to use. The trip around the whole Santorini which costs 30 euros was really nice as well. The only thing to be aware of would be this hostel is located in Perissa, NOT Oia. It takes 1 hour or so to get from Perissa to Oia. It's better to stay in a hostel in Oia if you don't have time and just want to see the SUNSET, it's much more convenient.

It's quite difficult to find the hostel to be honest. You have to read "Map and Directions" thoroughly and follow the instruction as the bus driver will NOT know where "Nimfon" street is. It's just a small street. Very glad that my room is upgraded to a single room though...

Staff there are quite nice. I have to say the hostel is not that clean though. Good thing is that you are free to borrow the stuff you need for beaches.

It's a nice hostel overall. Kitchen and computers are free to use. Just a bit expensive but it's understandable as it's in Sweden.

It's a nice hostel with all facilities you need. Free computer access and printing service. It's the first hostel that I have been to with a piano that you can play. Quite impressive I have to say. A huge drawback would be the kitchen closes at 10pm and the common area closes at 12am which is rather annoying!

The first 100% hostel. You can get any facilities that a hostel should have for FREE. Free Breakfast, Free computer access, Free printing service, Free lockers. The atmosphere is quite nice as well, good for meeting people. 10 euros only for a night. 150% value for money. Definitely stay here again the next time I come to Madrid (even if I have to pay 15 euros)

I like the idea that you can get traditional Paella and Fideua in the hostel for 5 euros as your dinner. However, it's quite expensive staying here: 20 euros a night with few facilities.

A small but warm hostel ! I enjoy staying here, it's like a family. Thanks for your hospitality, Steve. But there is one thing I really have to say, it's quite hard to find the hostel and the SMALL direction sigh is right IN FRONT OF the hostel which is ridiculous. You would never see the sign unless you've already find the hostel ! I suggest placing a direction sign right at the corner of Dublin Street or wherever, it definitely helps backpackers to find their way :)

My friend... imagine a world where every business put signs all over the place directing people to their businesses. You wouldnt be able to see our sign amongst the ten thousand signs that you would get...Most businesses like us are only allowed by law to put a sign above our front door... So find Dublin street.. ( thats one minute down hill from the bus station) and then find 30a... and amazingly everyone will find the sign above our door just like you did! Glad you enjoyed your stay though!!

This hostel is nice, good value for money, around 15 pound a day. Good location. Chilling staff. Clean room with lockers provided. Great common area for meeting people as well. The only bad thing would be you have no WIFI in the room and you have to pay 2 pounds for breakfast.

The hostel is a bit far from the coach station by walking. It takes 20 minutes or so for you to reach the hostel including finding the place. I would say the atmosphere of the common area in the hostel is really nice, quite romantic to some extent. We have private bathroom in our room which is good. Yet, the size of the sleeping area is far from enough, about the size of 4 beds ONLY in total, and there is NO WIFI in the room. The hostel would be ok for you if you just need a bed to sleep.

Very nice hostel, great atmosphere. Hate the common area closes at 12am though, probably becoz of security reasons. Will come back again when i'm back to Birmingham.
