    Wonderful home-like hostel held by amazing Gianna and Kostas (Thank you so very much, guys!). If you treat everyone with respect and love, you’ll find a real home outside of home. The atmosphere here is absolutely wonderful and it allows you to make friends with the most amazing people. The hostel itself is more like a house with a few rooms, bathrooms and a kitchen. So you can cook, do your laundry and just relax or go for a walk in lovely Ioannina.

    One of the best stays on my entire trip. The accommodations are perfectly adequate and always spotless, but the real magic is the vibe on the back patio. Had so many great conversations, laughs and memories at this place!
