To everyone I spoke to about Plakias, everyone said that ´you will want to stay longer´ - and I did! Most amazing atmosphere, with happy hippy travellers. As a solo traveller, everyone was so lovely and welcoming. Make sure you go on the ´river walk´ behind the hostel, and up all the river gorge´s - was the best day of my stay! No security, however it´s not needed in this hostel - you can´t explain it till you´ve been there! Great location - great hostel. Who doesn´t love a sleep in a hammock!?

Liked: This place is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy nature right on your back doorstep. The vibe here is unlike anywhere else. If you are in Crete you have to stay here and you probably wont want to leave.
I had wonderful days there. In the hostel I met so gentle people. The tipps from the manager are very helpfull. To go to the beaches or supermarket is not far. From the hostel I started to a few nice places on the south coast of crete. But it was also nice in the hostel to be in a quiet natural place, where I found everything I need. My mattress was so much better that the one I had in my last 4-star-hotel. And I liked so much staying lazy in a hammock and only relax. Real holidays

This is the best hostel ever! Guests are encouraged to join in activities ranging from hikes & hostel BBQ´s to resturant dinners -where groups of 20 or more random strangers share local dishes and become best friends due to Uli, the manager´s, magical alchemy. Uli is not only known for great advice, warm conversation and beautiful blue eyes, but also for selecting delicious menu choices that allow guests to eat & drink like kings at local off-the-grid farm/taverns for under 12 euro!
