  The Benedictine Monastery at Samos
by into-thin-air

The Huge Benedictine Monastery at Samos towers above the town and surrounding countryside, a Really Spectacular building and well worth making the detour to stay in it !!
Run by a Friendly local guy who speaks a little English, He can also arrange a tour of the Monastery if you should wish !!
Good toilet and shower facilities but No kitchen, however there is a Good choice of places to eat in Samos for both your evening meal and breakfast.
There are 44 beds available in one Large but Spacious dormitory
Again Donations only at This refugio so just leave whatever you can reasonably afford !!

Price Comparison: least expensive
Price: less than US$20
Theme: Hostel

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
