There was a single shower for the whole building. There aren't lockers and the doors of the rooms remain opened to anyone who wanna come in. The curfew wasn't a problem cause I've stayed for one day, however if you wanna go out, keep that in mind. There is a "luggage store", but you are charged to leave anything there.

For your €10.00 a night you get a mattress in a room. There is no air conditioning so all the doors and windows are left open at night, there is also the option to sleep in beds on the roof under the stars. (Romantic?) The good points are the hostels central location, close to the port and bus station and... More

Great place to stay if just looking for a place to sleep for night or two. Very cheap. A clean sheet was provided and my bed was comfortable and clean. Owner was very helpful with information re cultural events and checked the local papers for me. The building is old and has great character ..personally I enjoyed that aspect of... More

It is the cheapest hostel I have ever been to in Europe but also one of the worst. I stayed for two separate nights, which made it manageable with not showering and using the toilet as little as possible. In my experience, the female staff is friendly. The young man gets annoyed if you ask to many questions and the... More

Don't know where to start. The first day there I lost my dignity taking shower and the second I lost my make up stuff. Dorms are constantly open, they have no security lockers. There is a curfew at 1:30. Separate dorms for mald and female but common toilets. And they are called yputh hostel! No one there has a sense... More

DO NOT STAY HERE!! Absolutely horrendous! We were there for probably a total of 40 minutes in total and ended up going and asking if we could get our money back and check out. The lady was completely unreasonable and gave us a thousand reason why we couldn't get out money back. We argued valued points of the fact it... More

There is only one shower for all the guests, the toilets are have no seat and are dirty. You only get one clean sheet to sleep. For the same price or slightly more you can get a relative good hotel in Herlaklion.

It may be cheap but nothing is worth getting bugs living on you. On top of that it was dirty, I hardly wanted to use the washrooms or showers, and the people staying there were practically homeless. Avoid this place at all costs.
