The 6 best hostels in Santorini for every backpacker

Santorini is a Greek volcanic island in the Aegean Sea. The island is known for its stunning beauty and vibrant nightlife, two qualities that make it the perfect place for any type of holiday!

Around the lovely white streets of Fira – Santorini’s capital city – you’ll discover delicious food, cute shops and enjoy the sunset views over a glass of wine from one of the many terraces.

If you like hiking, the walk from Fira to Oia is BEAUTIFUL, with impressive views of the sea from above. Another option for nature lovers is climbing up the volcano that created Santorini in Nea Kameni island (you can get there easily by boat!).

If you want to escape the tourists, read this article for the best things to do Santorini!

The best hostels in Santorini are spread out all around the island, including Fira, Perissa and Karterados. Now, tell us your type of holiday and we’ll tell you your hostel!
