For those traveling and trying to keep costs low, this is definitely the place to stay. Everything is quite nice, including the staff, and they just renovated so its all updated. It definitely has an island/Greek feel (walking outside to use the bathroom/showers) but I found it to be very cool and unique. Great location as well. Would recommend!

This is one of the nicest, cleanest hostels I've stayed in for years. The staff are really friendly and helpful. My original flight was cancelled, so I arrived a day later than my original booking in the middle of the night which was no problem when I arrived at the hostel. As a single, young woman travelling alone I can't...

After arriving in beautiful Rethymno I booked my stay at the local youth hostel, anticipating a time of rest after a long stint of adventures along the Southern coast of Crete. However, I was met over the next two days with harassing advances by the male staff, overstepping boundaries & cracking jokes over sharing my oversized towel with me. I...

Dear guest , This particular day I had to be out of town and our manager was sick and not able to work. A new member of our staff seems that tried to ask you for a small charge of 0,50 euro when he gave you the extra towel you asked just for the laundry cost. When you refused to...

I booked a one day stay at this hostel and I ended up staying for a week. The atmosphere was so relaxed and the surrounding city so easy to lose yourself in that I could have easily spent longer. The hostel staff are very knowledgeable about the island of Crete in general and they always seemed happy to indulge my...

Loved this hostel! We arrived just in time for the Easter BBQ, which was delicious and a great way to meet the other guests at the hostel. The staff was really friendly and helpful, the dorms and facilities were always clean and comfortable, and the hostel's location is really central. Plus, the price is amazing. Will definitely stay here again...

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...
