Wish I could help but I just wanted to throw my hat in the ring with you.
I'm looking at hitting Greece next spring/early summer. I really don't want to see Athens much (just the major sites). I was looking at hitting the islands and Sparta (I'm a Spartan history freak).
So I'm also looking for any good hostels/cheap hotels.
The word "good" has many meanings. For example, if a man were to shoot his grandmother at a range of five hundred yards, I should call him a good shot, but not necessarily a good man.
