The Pink Palace Reviews

The Pink Palace used to be one of the most famous hostels -- if not the most famous -- in Corfu. It is very big, with three different buildings covered inside and out with its namesake color (pink). It is located on the west side of the island and it is well known by locals and expats, so it is easy to find.

The Location

As mentioned, it is located on the west side of Corfu Island in the village of Agios Gordios. It can be reached by bus from the airport and the harbour, and also the hostel itself organizes some private shuttles. The three buildings that make up the hostel are quite close to each other, but the first one is on top of a hill and the last one is down the beach, so it is quite a long walk (about fifteen minutes from the two). Parking is available for free to customers, so it’s an advantage for those renting a car. In the little village you can find supermarkets, shops, and all kind of services. However it is a bit of a walk from the hostel, especially the beach building, to the village.

Rooms and Bathrooms

It offers all different type of accommodations, including dorms and privates. When the hostel is full, customers can be spread across the three locations, but when there are not many people, all guests go to the building by the beach, which also has a bar, a pool, and some sport fields. Rooms are fairly big and clean. Bathrooms as well are clean and are found all around the hostel. Some rooms also have en suite bathrooms. There is hot water in the shower and soap is provided.

Common Spaces

Common spaces are the best thing about this hostel. There is a large swimming pool, a gym that guests can use free of charge, a volleyball court, and a basketball court. Also, there is a bar that faces the beach where parties are organized at night. Unfortunately, only a few guests were staying when we visited, so the vibe is pretty much nonexistent and no activities are organized. It used to be an amazing place to meet other people, but now we find that with few guests it is hardly possible to meet fellow travelers.

Summary

All in all, prices are above average for hostels in Corfu. Once known as a party spot, now this hostel can be a good choice for those looking for quite a time on a higher-average type of hostel.
