Liked: It is an amazing place! The rooms are big enough, clean, well ventilated and with conformable beds. The showers/toilets are really clean. The staff is really friendly and helpful with questions regarding not only the city but also other tips (like day trips/eating places/bars). The yard is very cozy to have a beer and a chat during the afternoon. They also have a free waling tour that is really nice.

Disliked: Maybe a little disadvantage is that you need to pay 1eur for using the kitchen, nonetheless the food in the city is really cheap, so its not really a good idea to cook.

Liked: The owner, Costas, is great. He knows the city like the back of his hand and can get you anywhere you need to go. We had a group of nine travelers and were able to book a whole two-floor cottage and had an absoulte BLAST.

Disliked: It's hard to get to (especially after a night of partying) but the locals are extremely friendly and don't go to sleep until 4-5AM so someone will inevitably show you the way. If you can, take the local bus to get there -- you'll feel like Disney's Aladdin being chased by guards. Ladies, lots of steep cobblestone hills so stilettos are not thebest idea. Still, only a 15m walk to the downtown core, and then maybe 30m return because of the incline. Free coffee too, and right near a liquor store, a grocery store, and great, cheap (€7/meal) restaurants!

Liked: Nice garden where you can eat, relax, use your laptop etc unless it's siesta time. Owners didn't like people to stay at gardens during siesta.

Disliked: Siesta and quite poor wifi signal. Also too small fridge for all of the hostel quests..

Liked: Very Greek feel, in the old town where it is very quiet and gives off the village feeling. Lots of people, nice atmosphere!

Disliked: No breakfast and wifi only outside in the courtyard. We stayed in the spare building... So for 12€ it was a bit expensive considering we stayed in a 15€ private and bathroom bed and breakfast in Meteora. They do not take cards for payment. Still would recommend the place for its location! However google map it before hand because the directions are not very good (we were unable to find bus 28)
