Liked: The location was great, pool refreshing during the heat, and particularly the staff were brilliant. I went on a tour that finished after reception closed (as I was checking out that day). However, the guy (whose name I cant recall) hung around until I returned to collect my bag from storage PLUS allow me to have a shower and change before my overnight ferry to my next destination. Would stay again

Disliked: Not really a dislike but had to move rooms for my second night, but it was from a twin private to a double private even though I booked a 5 bed dorm for both nights. Caught up on some much needed sleep.

Liked: It was good coming back to the pool after a hot day walking around

Disliked: The property was more of a hotel than hostel and was not good for meeting people. The wifi was not available in the dorm, only in the courtyard and it barely worked there. There are no lockers and the reception closes at 9.30 so it's not practical to leave valuables there

Liked: It was central

Disliked: The staff were not at all helpful, when you needed their help would put on this attitude as if you were an inconvenience to them and that they were not happy to help you out. This happened three times in the time I stayed there making the stay unpleasant. They did not bother to think up other solutions to help you either.

Liked: It's a well located hostel with several buildings spread out in the neighborhood. Nice staff at reception.

Disliked: But only in main building there is wifi. You walked 5 minutes to the main building where you had a basic breakie. Not worth the money we paid for it 33€/person. Had definitively better hostels for less.

Liked: The hostel is very nice and there is a nice atmosphere as people hang out in the courtyards of the hostel. Pavlos is amazing, giving us extremely helpful suggestions, being fun, and generally being extremely helpful. The hostel would not be the same without him.

Disliked: The bathrooms are too small and they could be improved.

Liked: I really liked everything until my stuff was stolen.

Disliked: My cash, phone and credit cards were stolen in my room and yes, they were locked up. There is no card reader key--and the keys don't lock automatically when you close the door. So, with people coming in and out of a dorm room, it will be left unlocked by accident.

Liked: Very friendly and helpful staff. Well located a short walk from Fira centre. Beautiful terrace for breakfast and hanging out. Calm.

Disliked: As other people have said, not much atmosphere but its not really a party island so this wasnt really a problem for me. A little difficult to find with the directions from the website but I just asked in town and found it no problem.
