We stayed in the covered roof terrace dorm and were glad of it, due to the heat. Toilets at end of courtyard but that was alright, staff were great, breakfast was slow, would definitely stay here again

I spent 5 days at this hostel and it was the best decision. The staff are amazing (especially Alex & Ivan who are always helpful and approachable). The food and drink at the hostel is so cheap and great. Rooms are basic, but who cares when the hostel has such a homey and warm vibe. You have to make the... More

Top notch hostel and for the price of 10 euro is very good. You can hand wash your own laundry with the facilities here and there are lots of clothesline to hang it all out. Great money saver. Very friendly atmosphere. Great location, close enough to the beach and bus stop and in the old city. Only thing missing for... More

Alex and the team are interesting dudes, and generally fun to be around. The old town of Rethymno is cool and the vibe is relaxed. I enjoyed my stay, but would suggest they use better or more fans. There were 3 or so middle aged/older guests who literally sat around in the common area drinking and smoking from morning until... More

This hostel is in the perfect location right in the heart of Rethymno within a very short walking distance to the beach and all of the major tourist attractions! I could not recommend this place more. It was a great place to meet other travelers and make new friends. There was nothing extravagant about this hostel but there doesn't need... More

I've stayed here on a couple of occasions. Alex, the manager is a fantastic host and an awesome cook. Come for nights of music, raki, and relaxation. Great location in old town, and various interesting characters make the stay memorable. Rooms are simple and a bit old school, but that adds to the charm. The hostel celebrates its 40th anniversary... More
