I am an Erasmus student from Germany and came to Crete with another friend. We could not find an appartment for the first months and were recommended to stay at the Youth Hostel. Because of the lack of privacy I was a bit worried but the worries went away! It really feels like home and you can build a small...

I enjoyed our stay here so much. Not only did the staff provide us with great information on sights to see, they provided us all with a clean hostel and a sense of family. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a great time, this would be the place to go.

I chose Crete over the more well known islands only because of this hostel and they did not let me down! Great location, excellent wifi, clean hot showers and an overall vibe and layout that encouraged everyone to be social and make friends. The staff went above and beyond by telling us things to do and see, helping us get...

This is without a doubt the best hostel I have ever stayed in and anyone that travels in Crete should do themselves a favour and stay for at least a night (which will probably turn out to be more!). The owner and staff are all incredibly helpful and nice and will do anything to help you with your travels if...

I stayed there last summer for four nights. I did a lot of exploring of the island so did not actually spend much time in the hostel or interact much with others while I was there. The beds were comfortable enough, the place was clean, that's all I really wanted. Good location too and Rethymno is a beautiful town I...

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...

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...

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...
