The Greek Island Kerkyra
Going to Corfu on a backpacking holiday is a great way to see the island in your own way and get a real taste for traditional Corfu. As one of the safest places to go in Europe, with one of the lowest crime rates for holiday destinations, it is good to know that the locals here have a reputation for being friendly and honest. The choice of hostels for backpackers in Corfu is excellent, with a number of them almost like hotel resorts, considering the great prices and the number of guests accommodated. Hostel prices start at around 15 Euros per p/p p/n and will include a generous breakfast (and sometimes dinner) for that price. Backpackers are made to feel very welcome on Corfu, with one particular hostel (the Pink Palace) meeting you as you arrive on the island and immediately sedating you with a shot of pink liquor!
