Easily the best hostel in Greece! Booked three nights and stayed 10! Great location (plenty to do away from the hustle and bustle!) , facilities (cooking utensils, fridge etc), common area (plenty of seating, hammocks, deck chairs) and events (weekly hostel BBQ's). The manager-Uli, also had exceptional service and was extremely helpful and friendly! I will definitely be back! Highly recommended!

I had been traveling for a week and half in Crete, but it wasn´t until I landed at Youth Hostel Plakias that I actually felt like I was on holiday. I was only slated to stay there for 3 nights and ended up staying a full week, because the people I met were amazing, and the location is a perfect base to find river walks, hikes, excellent tavernas, waterfalls & the best raki ;) Uli, the hostel manager is incredibly knowledgeable and kind--he´ll give you the best tips for things to do, hike & eat.

All the good things that were written before are true.
Came for 1 night ended up staying for 4 (and would have stayed more if I could).
The rooms are spacious the beds are comfortable and it is clear there was some thought into the little things that can make a hostel room excellent (like a personal light for each bed or personal compartment for each bed to leave a book/phone/water next to you).

But more than the facilities it is the vibe of the place which feels a little like a retreat.
The manager Ully is just one more traveler and will suggest thing to see or do and will often also join you.

Bottom line, one of the best hostels I stayed in!
Will definitely be back.

Stayed October 2013, travelled solo
This hostel is one of those rare and special places where you feel immediately welcomed and are given the opportunity to make genuine connections to the people and place. I feel so blessed to have found this beautiful community of people in Plakias. Of all the places I have travelled in the past month, this one I will miss the most. Thank you to everyone who made this hostel so special and for all the adventures that were had. I will be reccomending this hostel to everyone, and I hope to return
