    The owner of the hostel was great! Super friendly with a lot of good advice about the city and if you needed any help! Great place to meet others, the city also had a lot of great attractions. The hostel was very clean with the basics things in the kitchen like salt oil spices etc! Would highly recommend!!

Super easy to meet people and travel/ do day trips together because everyone hangs out in the back garden and it’s v friendly etc. Nice kitchen, clean bathrooms and nice beds, basically it’s perfect!

    It is an amazing option if you are staying in Ioannina. The place is clean and cozy and located amazingly, near the city center. The host is very friendly and always ready to help. We were glad to spend our time at this place.

    Excellent place to stay! The door locks were old and a bit tricky, but other than that, this place was perfect—I highly recommend! The host was wicked friendly and knowledgeable about the area, and the hostel was clean and well-kept. Wonderful place!

    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 :)

    Very Good

    Really good location and very clean rooms. However we found the owner to be rather passive aggressive and rude about our travel plans, which we didn’t find helpful at all as it’s our first time travelling alone. He also judged us for not not wanting to hitch hike as two 19 year old girls travelling alone, which he recommended for us to do. However we had a great time in Ioannina and really recommend Via Natura for any outdoor activities, Nikos is an amazing guide and we had soo much fun rafting!
