    I was only in Corfu for a short time, flying in then getting a ferry the next day. Madalena was hugely accommodating especially with a delay to my flight. Great service and great value for money.

    Warm welcoming staff. Great home cooked dinner for little price. A bit far from the beach but perfect if you have a rental car.

    I had the best experience here! Had to make a last minute reservation and the owners were so kind and accommodating. I was only there over night but the pool looked awesome and the dorms were a great size! Thank you to the hosts for the loveliest experience.

    Villa Magdalena is a serene retreat nestled among the plains of Corfu. Perfect if you’re after a peaceful Grecian getaway to break up the commotion of travelling. The staff are friendly & thorough — particularly the owner, Magda, who is a hard-working dynamite with a heart of gold. She will make ends meet for the guests no matter what. My room was spacious and comfortable, with great aircon, and even a private outdoor dining area that outlooked fields and mountains. Thank you, Villa Magdalena.

    Had a nice relaxing time at this place.It is a little bit out of the way but that was no problem for me as I enjoyed the peace and quiet. There is a super market and pharmacy up the road and in the other direction a nice Greek grill house and a charming little village if you can handle the walk up the hill. The owners are very obliging and will take you to to the beach and back and also drop you off at the bus stop if you want to get into town. There is a large pool which was a godsend !

    The staff was extremely nice and really helpful with everything! I really had a nice stay. The only negative point it’s that it’s very far from everything. But the hostel itself is very cool and I have to repeat how friendly Magdalena was and also her cousin Allyson xx

    I only stayed one night however a few very good points about this hostel: the rooms are very large and clean. The bed I stayed in was a single bed in a 6 bed dorm room. The bathroom was clean. The pick up service from the airport to the hostel was on time and magdalena then dropped me to the marina the next day (I was commencing a tour) for a fair price. The staff were all very lovely, kind and helpful. It’s difficult to rate the atmosphere here due to only staying one night.

    Got moved to pink panther because the owner said there was no backpackers here so there would be better. Receptionist was no good no locker in room. No kitchen but they do breakfast for 5e and dinner for 10e which seemed expensive but dinner was good.
