This is the cheapest option you can get, but honestly it is not worth it. If you want to be close to the beaches (black sand), I would recommend you to stay in Kamari instead of Perissa (cuter shops and restaurants). I stayed three nights in Thira and for nights there and I missed Thira so bad... This is where... More

I absolutely adored this hostel. The hosts could not speak very much english, but they were so hospitable and kind. They picked us up/drove us to the ferry station, they offered us homemade wine and sat with us while we shared it, they dropped us off in Fira for a night out, and they made sure we had everything they...

If you're looking for a cheap stay that isn't awful, look no further. I stayed here with some friends as we were traveling over the summer. The staff was nice and friendly and the rooms had all the basics. Plus, it's super close to the beach!

We had a fantastic stay at Katerina and John's hotel. John was very hospitable and kindly gave us a transfer to and from the airport. The rooms are clean, comfortable and we had a lovely balcony to relax on. It is a 5 minute walk from Perissa beach, which has the most beautiful sunrise in the morning! There is a... More

We booked here for 3 nights but ended up booking 2 more after the first night. It's perfect for backpackers or people just looking for a cheap room. Awesome spot, right next to a bus stop and motorbike hire place so you don't need to walk anywhere. Restaurants and supermarket nearby. 2 minute walk to the beach. Wifi worked in... More

The place was booked for only 10 Pounds per person. It has a swimming pool. When I entered, i saw the pool was slimy at the corners (which was cleaned later on) - so the pool is maintained (do not expect too much). The bathroom's lock was not working. The shower is not fixed on the wall - has to... More

Only a 6 or 7 minute walk away from the black sand Perissa beach and the delicious Tranquilo Bar, and it's attached to a cheap place to rent mopeds or ATVs for only $25 for 48 hours. The hostel is pretty basic, it's decently clean, although not spotless. I didn't have any truly memorable interactions with the owners, as they... More

It was one of the most affordable places on the island. It was far from being luxurious but it was very decent. It is a little bit old, but it has everything a person needs.

This hotel is the best value for money in all of Santorini! John is so friendly and the rides to and from the airport alone is about 20 euros each way. You can't find a better deal anywhere!
