I always stay in hostels while traveling because of the fun social atmosphere which this one definitely had. It was also clean but old building so not the prettiest. There are lockers large enough to fit your suitcases.

Great hostel centrally placed in Fira. The rooms and common areas were clean, and the staff were very nice and helpful. It’s close to the bus station, and local busses have frequent rides to all places all over the island.

Could not have picked a better Hostel. The location and convenience was great for me. The indoor kitchen area and the outdoor patio are great meeting spots to talk to fellow travellers . Its proximity to the travel agency, bus stop, post office, grocery store and Car Rentals was very very convenient. Rooms were kept reasonably clean in a 10 person dorm and so was the Kitchen space.

Worst hostel I've ever stayed at (have been in over 50 cities this year)!! Location is the ONLY thing going for this hostel. Don't get stuck in Room 12. It is the worst, most disgusting room/bathroom you will ever experience. Smells like rotten fish, dirty water; it was difficult to breathe and hit you every time you entered the room and airless bathroom. I asked to change rooms and the woman at the front desk was EXTREMELY aggressive & hostile. Never experienced that before. I left the next day

Worth it for the great location. So close to bus stop that takes you to Airport and Oia easily. Fira is also cheaper so it's great for budget travelers. Not the cleanest and pretty cramped but still worth the price. Also they have free luggage storage which is key.

Solid hostel. Great spot on the island near everything. Staff was friendly. Lockers were provided. Showers and bathrooms were ok. Bathrooms in the room were much better than the public ones. Common area was spacious. Also, credit to this hostel for having one of the only “leave your bag” policies where they lock up your bag if you arrive early or have a few hours until your next place after you check out.

Overall a good spot for young backpackers. Saw people of varying ages. No problems. Wifi was good most of the time with a few exceptions. Staff was super helpful and friendly FREE LAUNDRY 1euro for soap but thats fine. Cant flush toilet paper down the toilet which is annoying. also all bathrooms in santo smell a little like c*** because of it. Fun fact 🙂. You would think with millions of tourist's money they could afford plumbing upgrade. Young guys didnt lock door much but lockers are free! :D
