This awful place almost ruined my vacation! The so called manager didn't appear even once! There's a reception and pool there, but it's always closed! There's a conditioner in the room, but there's no one to give you a remote from it even for money. Without it you just can't sleep because the Hostel is right in the middle of...

If you go to Malia to get fun and live the night life, this place is for you. Not for "princess" or "mama's boy". Keep your bloody money in the pocket, never leave it in the room. In the reception there's a safety box. No matter what place, which country, you never leave the money in the room.

Don't listen to ANY of these negative reviews, me and 4 other girls went there for a week at the beginning of July and it was the best experience ever we're so sad to be home! It's a short walk from the top of the strip from the coach and there were reps helping us to find the hotel, which...

I don't even know where to begin with how terrible this place is! If it wasn't bad enough getting all of my money stolen by the manager on our first few hours of staying there (250 euros) by using his key... About 10 other people who were staying there at the same time as us also got their money stolen...

Over 2000 Euros stolen from 5 groups over 5 nights whilst we were staying there, including 400 from mine. Dead and alive cockroaches in the bathrooms and in our clothes, no aircon but you can buy a fan that doesn't work for 80 Euros. Nikos' (manager) mother slapped our friend, who then had a panic attack from their threats. CCTV...

Arrived at Soula Mari on the 11th July for 8 nights, with 4 girls. Read through all the reviews of this hotel before we went and we were a little worried, however we could not possibly ask for a better hotel! The staff were so friendly and couldn't do more for us, Nikos is amazing so much fun. The hotel...

First night 250 euros stolen, second night 150. Consulted the manager/owner Nikos who said the CCTV cameras were conveniently not working. He also accused me of lying about the robbery. His mum slapped my friend. He scared us. Don't go here; ever.

Arrived at the hotel with a group of 5 girls that have been on previous party holidays (Magaluf & Kavos) and ready to party!
