We stayed there one night, before taking the ferry for Santorini. The hostel was very clean, rooms and bathrooms. We didn't spend much time inside the hostel and we didn't use the kitchen or anything else. But from what I've seen, everything seemed great. It is well located, near the city center and maybe a 10 minutes walk from the... More

i stayed here and loved the location, the charming old building with comfy sitting areas,the possibility of summer beds on the roof and in particular, the friendly and helpfuladvice of Rena and George. They both had so many good ideas re local fun ...walking the city walls, open air cinemas and my favourite: amazing local concerts of cretan music. whatever... More

Contrary to the horror stories in several older reviews, this is NOT a 'nightmarish, dirty, or horrible hostel' Those claims are greatly exaggerated. It's a simple, well maintained hostel. Every time I saw the owner she was cleaning something. I did notice some guests behave like spoilt children and expect others to clean up after them, even though there are... More

At £12.50 the youth hostel is what you pay for. We stayed as a group of three in an 8 person female dorm which was spacious considering the number of people. Lockers also included and found within the rooms. Only downside is that there is no A/C so rooms get quite warm at night and that there seems to be... More

The hostel is well situated near the port, bus stop and city centre. Easy to get to. At 10 euro a night it is very cheap. It was about 39 degrees the day/night we stayed here which made it very uncomfortable as there are no fans in the rooms. A ceiling fan and a couple of pedestal fans would make... More

A Traditional Family run hostel right in the heart of Town, with loads of character. A great location , walking distance from the bus station,not far from the port or Airport. Really Friendly and helpful staff. Basic, but all you need. Good free Wi-Fi signal. Would use again

Don't take any notice of the bad reviews on here. It is a nice little hostel with friendly staff and a central location. I went up into the top deck to eat my breakfast and it has some amazing views. It's only a 10 minute walk from the dock. The rooms are basic but with character (there's also free, strong... More

When I booked I was expecting minimum assets needed for a good stay. When I arrived it was completely different. There were not even basic kitchen utensils such as knife or fork. Everything (the least what they could provide) was pretty dirty. There was a warn telling to wash the dishes but there's no sink !! At least a proper... More
