“Lovely Time!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

Liked : the views from the balcony was amazing especially the sunset every night. the breakfasts and dinner where amazing and you wouldn't expect it to be that good for the price but it seriously was very good i recommend the Greek pancakes for breakfast. the location was great only a 2 minute walk to the beach and you can go on boat trips organised by the hostel.

Disliked: The bathrooms weren't that great as we didn't have any hot water for the 6days we was here and it wasn't very clean. the rooms looked out dated and the mattresses need changing as i got bitten by bed bugs each night

overall i had a fantastic 6 days here at sun rock hostel and miss chilling with everyone on the balcony each night. :)

This is a very good hostel and definitely one of the cheapest in Corfu. The staff is very kind and friendly, especially Madalena, the owner, who makes great goat cheese :) The beach is so close, just 2-3 minutes to the beach, we had free transfers to and from the airport, food is excellent, and all in all, we had a really great time here. Hope to see you soon again :)

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are great

Magadelena & the family are so lovely, welcoming & have a brilliant sense of humour. The traditional Greek dishes for both breakfast & dinner were amazing, fresh & all included in the price! As well as this you get free transfers to & from the airport (tip: on arrival exit the airport turn left and walk down the road til you get to a cafe - this is where they pick you up!). It is so worth it! They were also kind enough to give us a lift into town one day & take us to their organic farm & show us around! Pelekas itself is beautiful. It is on the quieter side of the island but still has a good vibe. The sunsets are gorgeous. The hostel is literally a few steps from a sandy beach (tip: head to the white umbrellas - it costs only 2 euros for the sunbed & parasol for the whole day...much cheaper than the rest!). There are a few bars & restaurants along the beach & centre for water-sports & boat trips. There is a really amazing bar next door to Sunrock which has great view of the coast & reasonably priced cocktails (the owner is really friendly & welcoming). It might be worth renting a car or scooter because the walk up the hill to the bus stop is about 45 minutes & quite gruelling in the heat. The buses can be a bit confusing & irregular but it's not an issue as long as you plan ahead. Corfu town is about 20 minutes away on the bus. We climbed the old fort which was really enjoyable. Aqualand, a water-park is fairly close to Pelekas & can be great fun if you have the time. All in all we had a really relaxing stay at Sunrock & would definitely recommend it to anyone. I honestly can't think of a negative!!!

I stayed here on an extended stay in Greece and I absolutely loved it! It was the perfect backpackers hostel. Cheap, close to the water and laid-back. The family that runs it is very nice and welcoming. You immediately feel part of the family and they cook amazing Greek meals from scratch with the ingredients coming from their own organic farm down the road. Doesn't get much better than that. They have a sundeck which is perfect for hanging out and relaxing and provides amazing sunset views. The beach is a short 2 minute walk away too. I would definitely recommend this hostel and can't wait to go back!

Yes, the WiFi connection can be spotty. There might be spiders in the bathroom. Getting in from Kerkyra can be a bit tricky if your flight arrives late, and walking up the hill to Pelekas will make you sweat buckets.

But this place... this place and its people will stay with you long after you leave it. For all Greece's current woes, there's a quality of island village life, embodied here, that will relax you, edify you and re-forge your connection to something more fundamental... more human. Magdalena's amazing hospitality, her equally amazing omelettes; Alexia's joie-de-vivre, Angelos and his cliff-diving excursions (yours for only five euros... just kidding). Drinking the family's homemade wine and raki as the sun sets perfectly between sea and headland. Talking late into the night out on the terrace, watching the waves meet the stars. Meeting like-minded folks from all over the world, all looking for that sense of reality that a lot of us have lost in our lives.

If you want packaged tours and pool-side service, don't come here. If you're looking for banging tunes and easy lays, you won't find them. This is a place for those who want something beyond drab predictability and easy lives. This is a place for people who want to explore, dream, discover... and for whom life's rough edges are part of the charm.

To the Pigis family: I miss you all and hope I can return someday.

Angelos: keep up the good work. The site's looking good.

Alexia: never stop chasing that rainbow.

We got lucky, given that we made it to Sunrock while a lot of young people were around and ready to have fun. Every night, whether it was drinking games or dance parties, we enjoyed ourselves, and still left before the night was over for most. The food was incredible, without a doubt, and everything that wasn't included, I found to be reasonably priced.

Only complaints I have would be the spotty Wi-fi, that though free, wasn't the most reliable. Also, the hike up the hill to catch the bus into town wasn't the most fun - but it's a good workout and Corfu Town was lovely (and a short, easy bus ride away)! The bathrooms also didn't have a shower curtain, but it wasn't too much of an inconvenience, and there was a drain to prevent flooding.

The family-aspect of Sunrock, however, is something to absolutelly boast about. We really got to know the owners, their children, and even some of the cats! They were always polite and friendly, and their eldest daughter, Alexia, was particularly welcoming and excited to get everyone together. The family-style long table dinner was a great setting for conversation and the after-dinner shenanigans were very enjoyable, particularly once we got to know everyone. It felt like sitting around with old friends ready for mama's home cooking!

I'f given the chance, I would absolutely come back to Sunrock. Especially if I could have another one of Magda's homemade, hand-packed lunches on my way out.

I personally loved this place. For a breathtaking, relaxing but awesome time Sunrock is awesome. Not a large or really rowdy hostel, you really get to know the people living and staying there. The food was THE BEST. The view upon wakeup and sunset were beautiful. It isn't the cleanest but its still wonderful for lowmaintenance fun, eaasy going travellers.Magda and the family took very good care of us and were able to help us get to our next destination. And there were definetely nights that we would get to bed after sunrise if youre worried about not a good party scene.
