“widespread sickness”
Reviewed 10 July 2006

Everyone we met there got sick after a couple of days and the staff refused to accept that the food was to blame when clearly it was. Of approx 25 people we ate with on our 2nd night, everyone got sick at the same time. None of us had been travelling together up to this point. I have noticed that lots of reviewers on hostel booking sites have reported this sickness but by the next day the reviews have been removed by the booking site owners, this is unethical as does not let travellers know the truth

Reviewed 17 June 2006

This party hostel was a huge disappointment.

They promised us an "A class room", then we learned later that as we were only staying a night or two they downgraded us. The room we got was very small. With the tinyest shower -- and it only had hot water at certain times of the day.

The view was nice, but that is really the only good thing I can say. The internet was frequently down. The breakfast was dreadful. And the party events were all expensive.

The thing the Pink Palace does have going for it is an overnight bus that goes from Athens to Corfu. It costs 50euros. For this price you get the bus journey, plus a free nights stay; complete with one breakfast and dinner. The only problem is they make you get off the bus for two ferries and one hour long break during the night. This means you are constantly awaken. Not nice.

Speaking of being woken up... the night we were there a man used a key to open up our door and turn on our light at three in the morning. When we complaned the next day we were told the power had gone down in our building and he was making sure it was back up. At three in the morning?!? That was simply wrong.

I would recommend taking public transport and staying somewhere nicer.
