Awesome place
5 stars

It`s like an exotic resort for the price of an ordinary youth hostel. The location and dorms are great, there are a huge amount of hiking trails, expeditions, and secret beaches to find, everything within walking distance of the hostel.

Uli the manager is really helpful and if he wants to go somewhere the day, go with him if you can, he will show you hidden treasures of Plakias and it`s surroundings.
Room Tip: Take the one with the most attractive people in it.

Plakias isn´t a place - it´s a way of life

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 place in all of Greece to stay (and I have stayed in 5 other hostels)! Felt immediate at home and at peace in this little paradise by the beach. Great facilities for cooking. Lockers. Nice clean and spacious rooms, even for rooms with 8 beds! There are even beds on the roof! Hammocks everywhere underneath the trees. Super social friendly environment. Walking distance to beautiful beaches/coves. Super friendly owner ready to answer any questions. 10/10 would strongly recommend!!
