Alex and Stefan are wonderful hosts. Plenty of local knowledge to impart. I never had a dull day in Crete because of it. Great balcony (with cheap alcohol to purchase from the hostel) on which to meet people. Just a fantastic atmosphere, and a great hostel to use as a base to visit a lot of Crete. Decent rooms, hot...

We had a great time here at the hostel. From the communal kitchen to the clean showers, the great location or the atmosphere, you got it all there. Alex and George are what make this hostel special though. These two guys are great company and fun. Alex knows all about Rethymno and the surroundings, is a great cook and will... More

We are sorry the quest was not satisfied however we wish to explain what happened . All rooms are cleaned daily at 11.00 h so the beds were ready for them when the quests arrived . The problem was that we were very full ( for many days in August ) and we had not to much space left for... More

Great location just steps from the beach and the narrow cobbled streets of Rethymno. Amazing warm hospitality offered by the innkeepers - they are happy to talk you through any one of a dozen amazing Crete daytrips easily accessible from this central western location on the island. Easy bussing from the ports in Heraklio, and also from the Samarian George... More

We only stayed for one night but there was always a very friendly and almost party-like kind of atmosphere. All the services are available and generally in decent conditions. They have outdoor accommodation as well if you're up for something out of the ordinary. There is breakfast, snacks, drinks, books, infos, etc. the location is awesome, right in the old... More

This is the real hostel and one of the best. Place where you interrupt with people from all around the world. You have a unique chance to make friends, good sleep and in the morning very good and cheap breakfast. Want to stay forever...

I only planned on staying a night or two, but ended up getting sucked into & addicted to the amazing atmosphere and staying 2 weeks! It's so easy to make fast friends here and we ended up renting a car together and exploring some of the special places Crete has to offer. It truly was a time to remember :).... More

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

This hostel is one of the best Ive ever been to and such a wonderful place to feel at home and make new friends. You'll be welcomed in the most friendly way, the vibe is great and especially manager Alex's cooking skills will make everyone feel like being part of a big family! I can recommend that place to everyone... More
