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

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...
