At Fira Backpackers Place we've created a hotel-style experience that won't blow your travel budget and still has the bits we love about hostel life – chatty social areas are essential! Enjoy the Greek sunshine out on our terrace with a few (new) mates and an ice-cold beer or have a splash in our outdoor pool to cool off. Inside, we've got a laid-back living room with a TV and movies. There's also free Wi-Fi.


Our hostel is in the heart of downtown Fira, the island's capital, just a 3-minute walk to the main Bus station and 6 minutes' stroll to the main square. Here, you'll find lots of bars with views over the Caldera cliffs and sunsets so good it'd be rude not to take a photo. To reach us from Santorini Airport, jump in a taxi for 9 minutes. If you're hopping over on a ferry from another island, the port at Thira is a 17 minute drive away.

Rooms and Dorms

Our rooms have air con, fresh sheets and towels that are replaced through the week – all for your comfort! Upgrade to a private room for a hotel vibe with an en-suite bathroom, fridge and balcony – and more space to spread out. If you're feeling sociable, get to know other travellers in the shared mixed and female-only dorms – these also have en-suites, luggage lockers and fridges.

Extras and activities

Whatever time you arrive, our 24-hour reception is always open. We have a luggage room where you can drop your bags if you're too early to check in. Our kitchen is there for you to use whenever and we also have laundry facilities. For exploring the island, our travel desk has free maps and our friendly staff can also get you booked on tours and trips – like the one to Santorini's volcano.

    10 out of 10! Location is just perfect! 5 mins from the bus station, and around 7 from the town. The hostel is very clean, rooms are cozy and beds super comfy. There are common areas to hang out at with other backpackers, kitchen if you wanna cook and you can do your laundry for free. The staff is very friendly and helpful if you need and advice. I strongly recommend the place and am hoping to come back there soon!

    Fantastic hostel with really friendly staff, this place is clean and comfortable and in an excellent location. Perfect if you are trying to go Santorini on a budget! In my opinion Fira is the best place to stay as there is plenty to do there, two of the most beautiful cliff side villages are within walking distance, and all the buses on the island arrive/depart there. The hostel is in the centre of it all, two minutes walk from the buses, shops and restaurants. Staff are always on hand to help.

    Had the best time... met some cool people despite covid, Costas came out with us for some drinks. Room had everything you need all basic needs met and air con was a lifesaver! Clean as too. Easy walk to bus stop to get to all beaches and destinations. Close to lots of food and shopping.

    The staff, Hentrietta and Costas, were so kind, helpful and so patient with my endless questions. The location is just a 4 minute walk from the bus stop. Free laundry. The cleaning lady does an excellent job. I really enjoyed my stay here. Would definitely stay here again.

    Super average hostel. Everything in the room was very very damp and smelt musty. Why are the fridges in the bedrooms? They’re so so noisy!! Not a lot happening socially here. Beds are really uncomfortable, like really bad. S**t internet too. But a bed to stay in in Santorini I guess...

    Wasn’t a huge fan of this place, as I have stayed in nicer hostels in Santorini for. Probably would be more likely to recommend this place in non-covid times, as it is supposed to be a good place for meeting other travelers, but there weren’t that many people staying in the hostel during the summer. Staff was friendly but facilities were subpar, nothing special. Location was fine and but there are better places in Thira for the same price. Would not stay here again.

    Good location. Disappoint stay - okay check in, expected an actual private room when paying for a private (not a 6 bed dorm). Was told this is a hostel, but from personal experience 99% of hostels also do actual privates... Dorms were ok, AC was good, I guess for Santorini the price is ok too...

    Directly billed me two months before I was even meant to stay even though I booked through the website, haven’t responded to any of my emails requesting the money back and oh, that’s right, couldn’t legally even provide me with the service they charged me for and made me pay anyway. Did I mention they took the money without warning me as well?
