I had a nice stay here. Alex is very nice and helpful, even walking me to the restaurant he recommended which was much appreciated. The wifi connection is good. The kitchen has all the basic needs and I had no problem cooking here. The hostel is in a good location, everything is within walking distance, there is a supermarket around... More

I love that place! The location is great, right in the center of Rethmno. It is pretty cheap and they have a discount for longer stay. The construction of the hostel itself made in a way that in order to get to your room you need to pass through common room and dinner room, where in the evening there are... More

Friendly staff, nice lounge inside and balcony outside with nice flowers where people can hangout. In a central spot. I don't have anything else to write but tripadvisor pushes me so I will write pink floyd lyrics. Oh, I reached 200 characters already. Nevermind. See you then :)

I was not impressed with this hostel especially after staying at Plakia guest house (run by the same management) in the other side of Crete. The dorm was so full of beds and no space for your luggage. Even in the off peak season do you know so many beds? I left some stuff in the fridge but they locked... More

Manolis K, Owner at Youth Hostel Rethymno, responded to this review

The quest stayed with us over night, left at 05.30 h and never informed us he had food in our fridge. Even though our reception hours are clearly written both on our website and in front the reception area of course we would have tried to help him if we knew. He is very wrong about the " same management... More

This was my 2nd time staying at this hostel and it remains one of my favourites. I wouldn't stay anywhere elae in Crete. It's clean, well located and there is a true sense of community between the staff and travelers which is fostered by the excellent common areas. The staff truly go above and beyond- a special shout out to... More

Clean hostel (all day long), adequate facilities. This place holds the true Hostel spirit. Had a great time with the other travellers but also with the kind hostel staff. Alex (hostel staff) is knowledgable about places to go in the island for sightseeing. PS: Alex is also a great cook, don't be shy to ask him to assist with your... More

The facilities are really basic - bunk beds, with a sheet and a wool blanket (bring your own summer blanket) [some guests even get a pillow =) ], showers and toilets are outside of the main building, some toilets have boards, and some hours you get hot water in the shower. Aside from that it has a small kitchen, loby,... More

I only stayed one night, but here are my impressions. Pros: Good atmosphere! Lots of interesting people. Good facilities, many showers and toilets so I never had to wait for either. Good location and friendly staff. Cons: No air conditioning (not so nice for me, I'm from the north and used to colder temperatures). You can sleep on the roof... More
