There’s got to be something in the water... this place is a little slice of heaven, or nirvana, or whatever you believe in. If you’re looking for peace, you’ll find it by lounging on the rooftops, hammocks, or tourist-free beaches. If you’re looking for friends, you’ll find it in the purposefully cultivated atmosphere of hospitality and openness. This place attracts the type of people who make hostels great experiences. A clean, beautiful space with secure lockers, and all the necessities.

What a wonderful world
I’ve never been so impressed with a hostel. It is so much more than just a bed to sleep in, every morning people gather to eat a delicious breakfast cooked by Shan and get amazing recommendations from Uli about what magical part of Crete (or amazing taverna) to explore that day. This place feels like a slice of heaven and home at the same time, despite only being here 5 days I’ve made amazing friendships, saw 4 people extend their stay and I have made firm plans to return ASAP! Thanks Uli! Laura

As good as other reviews suggest and Uli is a tremendous host and a gentleman and Plakias is a great place to chill out. If you like hostel life then this is the perfect place..if you want more privacy then it´s probably not for you..just be sure of what you like first. I did a bit of both hostel and a couple of nights in a private room in town but still ended up back here for the fun. Will definitely be back to both Plakias and to Uli´s.
