    it looks very new and modern and the staff is incredibly friendly. We liked the dorms with the little curtains and private light (although it could be a softer light... this one was quite harsh and bright). The kitchen is really nice to cook in and we enjoyed the seating area on the roof! Really cool. The toilet and shower area needs a bit of improvement. Thank you for a nice stay!

    This is a great clean new hostel with pod style dorm beds (curtains, personal lights and power points) and hot water and big lockers. There is also air conditioning in the dorms - a must even in late September. The staff are friendly and helpful. One of the best hostels we’ve stayed in in Greece, we would definitely stay here again.

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location and close to many restaurants, cafés, the local bus station, and a supermarket. Spacious lockers for bags, but no lock on the girl’s dormitory room. Girls showers need improvement. Otherwise, good value for the price.

    Very Good

    Decent hostel with a good setup, not enough bathrooms for the amount of people that can stay there. The kitchen looks new and is quite big, the roof area is cozy with a small bar, tables and lounge chair. It was pretty slow when I was there, but I imagine in peak season it could be a cool social hostel.

    Very clean, centrally located and comfortable. I did however have an issue with an older woman who may be the owner(?) She was incredibly rude and INSISTED I pay in cash. Just a very rude woman who definitely made her illegal business practices my problem. So, be sure to bring enough cash!
