Our Reviews

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

Liked: The most chilled out hostel in the world! The common area, hammocks and sun beds in the garden with olive trees... Just brilliant. Nice cheap breakfast. Great atmosphere, easy to meet people. I stayed 10 nights there and could have easily stayed much longer. Looking forward to coming back here :)

Disliked: Nothing

We didn´t plan coming on Plakias and now we don´t plan on ever leaving
Youth hostel Plakias was the best hostel experience I´ve yet had. There is a wonderful fun, social, and comfortable relaxing atmosphere. I think most of this is due to Oolie (sorry if that´s spelled wrong) who runs the hostel. He is very kind, very helpful, and does a lot to enhance the experience for people, even when it means no gain for him. I will recommend this hostel for anyone looking to experience Crete, or just go somewhere to enjoy the sun and good people.
