My cousin and I are going to be visiting Mykonos this summer and are wondering if you have any youth hostels that you have been to that you recommend. We love to meet new people when travelling, especially from all around the world! It always seems like Greece is the best place to make friends...What has your experience been?

One of the most popular ones in Mykonos is called Paraga Beach Hostel & Camping. Many hostels are campsites or have campsites in addition to hostel accommodation. In Greece, that's usually how University students will travel the islands, through camping or RV's. There aren't too too many hostels although you can find super cheap (usually run down) hotels for 40 euros a night.

Who said those days are over?....Siga!!!...On the contrary.... after we relocated from Mykonos we went for a short holiday and I didn't want to down memory lane in Kalafatis so we stayed at Paraga beach camping....and guess what?.....we met older generations like us travelling with their sons and daughters staying in wooden huts ....so basic and minimal,it was heavenly, just a mattress and a small fan!...and all mingling and having a good time, very nice atmosphere and had sleep less nights too!!😁....forgot how noisy the Wow Wow dogoo dogoo music sounded like!!.....and I should know...I organised the MTV Mediterranean Dance Tour with 40 Killowat sound systems at Hard Rock Café ...so don't give up on those days, bring them back....oh I nearly forgot to say.....on the Paradise Beach there is a beach bar....in one corner they had a mountain of empty champagne bottles only on display....I have never seen so many empty champagne bottles in my life before...we are talking Moët,Vive Cliqout, Pommery, Crystal and some 10 litres empties as well😁...I think the young ones had a roaring times.....
 

Is Mykonos noisy at night?

Don't get me wrong, I am super excited to see all of the nightlife in Mykonos when I visit this summer, but I am a little concerned about the noise level at night past 2 am. Is it still noisy at this time? I don't stay out too too late, and I would love to be able to get some sleep after I come back home from the day. What is everyones experience? And is every area noisy? Or is the nightlife located in a central place that is easy to avoid when booking a hotel? Thank you in advance!!

Visit these churches in Mykonos!

One thing that many don't think about when going to Mykonos is visiting churches! In my opinion, visiting churches is one of the best ways to get to know the history and culture of Greece. Before Mykonos was a party island, it was a regular old Greek island with very religious inhabitants (Greece has a strong Greek Orthodox Christian culture). Here are some of the churches that I recommend visiting

1. Agia Eleni Church
2. Paleokastro Monastery
3. Panagia Tourliani
4. Panagia Paraportiani

Ftelia beach is the best secluded beaches in Mykonos

Ftelia beach almost has no organized beach clubs or restaurants, which makes it really great because there is a lot of privacy and little noise. It's also very cost effective as you don't need to pay for a beach chair and you don't need to order any food or drinks. I like to just set up a towel and enjoy the nature with my friends and family. The beach is located just by Ano Mera village so there's lots to do before or after your swim. The only thing you'll need to be aware of us at the beach gets pretty windy. Good luck!

How much money do you think that 24 hours in Mykonos costs?

Mykonos is one of those Greek islands that just can't escape its reputation of being expensive. I love this video because it gives you an honest look at how expensive the island can actually be. As always, take it with a grain of salt because you can truly make anything affordable in Greece by being smart and planning ahead.
