“perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

we (a group of erasmus students from heraklion) found this hotel in internet. We "slept" for one night in this hotel and it was perfect for our needs! People really kind and price really cheap! Next to the hotel it's possible to rent a motorbike or a quod and the beach is near, maybe five minuts.

We really enjoyed our stay at Katerina & John's. We were picked up on time from the port promptly with no hiccups. The rooms were definitely basic, and the bathroom didn't have a shower curtain, but for the price, we had no major complaints. It is literally right around the corner from the black beach, which was beautiful, and right next to both a local bus stop and moped/atv rental place, if you'd rather do that (we rented an ATV for one day, and did the buses on another day. I would recommend renting SOMETHING at least on one of your days, only because taking the buses can restrict you, timewise. The last bus from Fira to Perissa leaves at 8:45, which is kind of early). It should be noted, also, that we had friends staying in Fira, and our ATV was a solid 5 euros cheaper. There is a bakery right across the way that is fantastic: they're open 24 hours, were the friendliest people in the world (honestly, the bakery staff was a highlight for us), and had delicious pastries for breakfast, or a snack. We also found the entire staff incredibly helpful--we were given a map, directions to everywhere you'd ever want to go, recommendations on the best sites to visit, etc. Through them, we ended up booking the Volcanoe/Volcanic Islands Tour with the added sunset in Oia for 26 euro--if you have the time, DO IT. Overall, we walked a way from our stay here feeling overwhelmingly satisfied. We did everything we wanted to do in Santorini, in large part because of the people associated with Katerina & John's.

i didn't reserve this hotel via internet, i just walk in and ask John to show me the room, i wanted to stay in the dorm room, but change my mind after he show me the room (i had live in dormitory for more then half year, i knew what it was like), and then he show me a private room, which is quite nice, just next to the swimmihng pool, the room is spacious and clean, toilet as well, but the cooking facility in the room is basically just decoration, not quite useful. i am quite happy with this room and the price, so i decided to stay 5 nights in here, enjoy my holiday.
the location is fine, not too far from the breach, supermarket and the bakery, as well as the bus stop.

Didnt expect that John would be waiting for me at the ferry terminal at all! Saved me from all that hassle of transferring to 2 buses to get to perissa not to mention the cost! Dorms were ok, considering the price i paid, and it came with a nice pool too! Location was near the beach, a 24 hr bakery n supermarket. Just that the bus to Fira comes as it pleases... Regardless of the schedule! Waited 1 hr plus once for it to come by! The best thing was, when i booked a midnight ferry, even though he had no guest to pick up from the port. John sent me and 2 other people there! At 11.30 pm! I was so grateful amd touched. A truly nice gesture! Thanks a lot John!

Parissa was not at all what we had expected and originally intended on changing hostels/hotels but John was so lovely and the quad bike hire was right next door. The pool was exactly what we needed after our big nights in Fira and there were no complaints of our room.

I was supposed to stay here for three nights, but my ferry took a 32 hour detour to Athens, so I ended up flying instead. Poor John waited the entire night at the port because our ship's internet went down and still came to pick me up the next evening at the airport, and took me to the port two days later. I stayed in one of the single rooms and it was fine and had a balcony. They were very helpful in terms of directions and suggesting places to eat, and I rented an ATV for the day. Would certainly stay again.

Room Tip: I stayed on the second floor, it was perfectly quiet and well lit, and reasonably priced (private ba...

I stayed here for a period of 10 days, during which I was put in the large dorm room next to the pool. The showers weren't that great and the rooms were a little rough around the edges, but when it comes to finding budget accommodation in Greece (and no that isn't an oxymoron) you really can't beat the place. There's a pool you can swim in, you're directly across the street from the beach, and the owners are so nice and will even pick you up at the ferry point as soon as you land in Santorini.

Room Tip: The large dormroom is ideal for budget travellers (7 euros a night) but be prepared for a lack of sl...
