Stayed in Rethymno in this hostel for two nights, and would've stayed longer if I had the time! For only €10/night I had a simple bunk bed in a female dorm, but it was the friendly people staying and most amazing hospitable staff that makes your stay that extra bit special! I've stayed in plenty of hostels but this one... More

The managers of this place are the best. Alex was more then happy to help with all questions and setting up guests with other like minded people to make it cheaper for all to see Crete. George is a wiz on the BBQ and Alex's salads were just as good. This is like a home. At the end of the... More

I can recommend that place to everyone... More

An excellent life experience! Very friendly atmosphere, and completely relaxing. Alex, the hostel manager, is a fantastic host and a his cooking a la Jamie Oliver! I will definitely be visiting this place again. I would recommend anyone who is traveling to Crete to call in and try it for yourself!

I spent 2 weeks at the Hostel, using it as a base to travel the local area. The hostel is centrally located and currently has two great staff members, Alex (known as Sasa) and Alex who both work long hours. Guidebooks say the Hostel reception closes during siesta (1-5) but my experience is that there is always someone to check... More

It is hard to find a hostel in Crete let alone a good one. The Hostel at Rythemno was very welcomed. Centralized located but not on a busy street it has a nice balcony and garden and it is a good spot to meet other solo travelers. The dorms though are too big and can be crowded when full and...
