    My friend and I had a great time. We were picked up at the ferry by the owner and she couldn’t have been nicer. The hostel is really close to the water park and is chill and relaxing. The staff was really friendly as well. If you’re hoping to have quiet and relaxing time in Corfu with beautiful surroundings this is a great place to start.

    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!

    We stayed 4 nights in double bed room. The staff is very nice and if needed Madga speaks many languages. The pick-up and drop to/from airport or port is very helpful. There a kitchen (fridge, gas, sink, ...)in our room which was super. You have to rent a transport to visit Corfu. You can rent scooter (the cheapest and most fun option) directly at the hostel.

    Villa Madalena is perfect for families and backpackers who want unique accomodation with a soul. The perfect antidote to the party hostel scene or generic hotel. I shared great conversations with lovely people from a variety of countries while enjoying the warm hospitality and delicious food offered by Magdalena, her lovely family, Alison and the other staff. Magda collected me from the port and I found clean, comfortable rooms, a good shower and a beautiful pool.

    I stayed here for just one night but wished I could have stayed for more. The nicest friendliest staff, big continental breakfast, beautiful pool to cool off in, kittens to pet and large quiet rooms. The best thing about this place is the family who run it. Madalena with her flawless English will help you with travel plans and give you advice or lifts, you will be made to feel at home and you won't want to leave!

    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.

    Magdalena and her Family were very welcoming and provided any assistance they could. She picked me up from the airport and dropped me at the port as there were no buses running in the area. Her family made a lovely meal and there were even kittens to cuddle. I would love to stay the next time I am in Corfu!

    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.
