    Thank you so much Magdalena! I initially booked for a few days, then ended up staying a whole month! :) Magdalena has such a welcoming family! Since I’ve started my travels this was the best hostel by far, staff are amazing! They showed us some incredible places and pristine beaches! By the end of the trip I felt like one of the family and one of the locals. See you all again next year :) I miss your homely dinners already!

    Magdalena's backpacker is a wonderful place to stay at while visiting Corfu. The facilities and the outdoor area with a huge swimming pool are great. It's a bit on the outside but there are bikes available and the hostel's staff offers pick-ups and lifts wherever you need to go in the area for a really good price. I would definitely stay there again!

    The staff is great and the rooms are really nice and cheap! There's a nice pool, and you can buy food there and cook yourself. Its far away from corfu but you can bike to some very nice beaches. The atmosphere is'nt amazing, and there's wasn't a lot of young people to talk with. It's a perfect hostel if you want a break from partyhostels and wan't to relax.

    This is for the pink palace as I got moved there without management notifying me until I inquired.. She said she will put me up in a better room which upon arrival it was just like any other room. Paid for a double room which is honestly not worth it. There is no wifi first of all. The rooms are very basic and the walls are so thin that you can hear everything next door or outside has to offer. Would not stay here again.
