    Do not miss the chance of staying here with Gianna and Kostas! The best hostel I have stayed in a long time.. the sign of a good hostel is that people continue to extend their stay as they discover the place and feel super at home! It was amazing to discover Ioannina and the terrace area was perfect to chill out in. All the facilities were super comfortable and all need, including perfect advice for seeing all the sights!

    The owner was very helpful and offered her and her husbands assistance even for the time after our stay in the hostel. The rooms and facilities were clean. We checked-out a little late and it was not a problem. The location is great – right in the heart of Ioannina while still not noisy at night.

    A cozy, spotlessy clean, and comfortable hostel run by a friendly couple. They'll give you lots on info on things to do and see and help you organize your hiking in the Vikos gorge. Handy location in the city centre, perfect for those arriving by bus. Feels like a little family. It's not a party hostel, but socializing is easy.

    Nice little hostel to chill out and visit some sites around the area. Ioannina is surprisingly beautiful and took more time than I expected to explore. Even during covid this hostel was full of people chilling out and taking easy. That being said bars are open past midnight and I didn't have an early night while there! Everyone chills out in the backyard patio before heading out and the owners are really helpful and chill people who mingled with the guests :)
