Liked: While rooms are fairly budget, they were clea and comfortable. All facilities are there, ac, hot water, fridge, wifi, cooker, and outside swimming pool. Katerina and John were fantastic hosts, warmhel, pful and reliable. Excellent location, near to beach, restaurants, supermarket, bakery, bike hire and ATM. For the price, super value.

Disliked: The pool was sometimes crowded and could have been a little cleaner.

Liked: It was a cheap stay with the basic necessities, and Perissa beach is very relaxing with friendly locals. The common area in the hotel is very comfortable, with a pool, several lounge chairs and a computer available for free use. There is also a bathroom with shower in the pool area that John allows people who checkout early, but stay late on the island, to use.

Disliked: The dorms and bathroom are pretty dingy, dirty and shocking when you first arrive, but you get what you pay for. The toilet seat doesn't even stay up on its own, so I rarely used the bathroom there. Cleanliness is not exactly a priority here. The owner's living area reflects their stand on cleanliness for the whole hostel.: they are definitely not meat freaks Reception is also quite confusing. Unless you're lucky to find someone around to point you in the right direction, you won't know where to check in. The bus stop is also not clearly indicated on the website, nor on the bus. For future travelers, it's the third or fourth bus stop before getting to the last stop on the Perissa bus, in front of Mark's Bikes. You won't hear anyone say it's the San Antonio stop, so ask the driver when you get on the bus to let you know which one it is. If you're arriving on the 2 or 3 am ferry and are not willing to pay for An expensive cab ride, get ready to hang out in fira or the port all night because there's no other way to Perissa until 7 am. Luckily, people party till sunrise in that town, there are 24 hour bakeries, and you won't be the only stranded traveller. Greece in general needs to work on late night/early morning transportation options to make a better impression on foreign visitors.

Liked: It was a 15 minute walk from Perissa beach and a bus stop was located just outside the hotel to bring us to other parts of the island. John and Katerina were also very helpful and approachable, with John giving us a lift back to the port when our stay ended.

Disliked: The bathroom was very small and smelled a little weird after the first day

Liked: I loved that there was a pool and air conditioning. After a long day of sightseeing it's nice to come back and relax in a cool room or in the pool. The owner John came and picked us up from the airport and was happy to answer any questions we had. The atmosphere was good here. All the travellers gathered around the pool to chat so it was easy to meet other travellers. The bus stop that goes to Fira and then I to Oia stopped right outside the backpackers.

Disliked: Our kitchen in our room was pretty dirty. We didnt really need to use it which was fine

Liked: Great value for the price, close to the bus stop, grocery and beautiful volcanic beach. Fantastic location.

Disliked: Room was a little stuffy with 8 people and no air conditioning, and there was no kitchen to work with. Also, the water was not potable, but it's not expensive to buy it.

Liked: One of the best hostel experiences so far. We arrived at the port with john there to pick us up. We had a private room with a kitchennette and bathroom. Everything was clean and nice. There's a pool for those who don't like the sand. 2 minute walk from the black beach and 30 second walk to the grocery store and 24hr bakery.

Disliked: Far from the center but very possible by bus or our favorite... Scooter.

Liked: The staff at Katerina & John Hotel are incredibly friendly, helpful and accommodating. The hotel was great: I really enjoyed the pool, and the courtyard with its tables and chairs. The rooms were equipped with air conditioners, fridges, televisions, balconies and some even had cooking facilities. It was also in a great location right by the Black Sand Beach and a 20 minute drive from Fira. I also liked being able to rent an ATV to explore the island. Thank you for a great stay!

Disliked: There were issues with the WiFi every once in a while, but it was bearable.

Liked: Great little pool, excellent location, free transfer to & from the ferry, even though my ferry arrived at 1am! John was there waiting when I arrived and pointed out some helpful hints on the drive to the hotel, like how to get to the beach, the supermarket, the 24hr bakery & post office - all of which are basically on your doorstep! As is the bus stop. There's an internet cafe & bike hire place right next door, I hired a quad bike for a couple of hours at a great price! Also the wifi is pretty steady from everywhere at the hotel. I had a little problems on the last night with the connection, but nothing too bad.

Disliked: I liked everything! A map or info would have been great when you need to find out how to get around day to day. Maybe a kettle or shower curtain would have been helpful to have in the rooms. The mini fridge is handy. Overall it's clean, safe and the owners are friendly. I would stay here again for sure!

Liked: Nice friendly management. Drives everybody to and from port/airport which saves on all that hassle of lagging your bags around and getting lost. Helpful advice when we missed our ferry! Rooms aren't breath taking but they are clean and confortable enough and theres air conditioning and a pool! little stove and cutlery to cook on (not the best selection but enough to be creative). For £13 a night for a private double i couldn't ask for much more. I even suggested they charge more!

Disliked: Eliza left no negative feedback.

Liked: Katerina and John are both very nice people. Location is the best -- in the quiet part of Perissa away from the crowd even in peak ours, but close to everything, including amazing 24 hours bakery and a big and cheap supermarket (both just across the road), beach is 2 minutes walk. The dorm is nice -- in fact it's more like three rooms in a row, so you don't really feel like sharing a room with lots of people.

Disliked: Only one thing -- no shower curtain :)

Liked: It is easy to find, its pretty ok for the price you pay. Nice little pool and friendly people.

Disliked: Reception is the living room of the house (which is no problem, just weird). They say its 15 minutes from the port, its more like 1 hour and 2 buses (which is also not a big deal, but why give the wrong directions?). No fun, not a place to meet people. The shower was really bad and the door wouldnt lock!

Liked: Super close to everything in Perissa. Unbelievably helpful staff, with rides to and from the port. Great value for money. Lovely pool, great for the greek afternoons when it's too hot to make it to the beach. Just realize the price you are paying and expect something for that price and you will be amazed. So what if it's a little dirty, and the locks in the bathrooms are broken, it's super cheap, ideally located and everyone is so friendly.

Disliked: Sadly there was no microwave or stove in the dorms, so you couldn't really cook a meal.

Liked: It was really cheap and relatively close to the main beach area. It was pretty far from the bus drop off point, but there was another bus stop right next to the place. It was great that they had ATV rentals right next door and the rental was very cheap.

Disliked: The beds definitely did not look very clean. There were a number of stains on it.
