Wow! Definitely didn´t fail to live up to expectations, most beautiful hostel we have stayed in. The owner, Uli, couldn´t have been more helpful and he recommend great walks. The rooms themselves were perfect, with each room being in its own self contained block with hammocks outside. The hostel itself was situated in a peaceful part of the town, yet only five minutes away from the beach and local night-life. The veranda was a great place to meet fellow travellers and socialise.

I had a wonderful time in Plakias! I was originally booked in for three nights and ended up staying almost two weeks- a common occurrence here. There are lots of incredible hikes and beaches in the area so every day can be a different adventure. Uli was great! He provided lots of information about how to get to Plakias, including which side of the bus to sit on so that you have the best view. He also takes people out to different towns for dinner so that you can taste some of the phenomenal food Crete has to offer. Clean hostel, comfortable beds and a wonderful atmosphere.

Stayed April 2015, travelled solo
Paradise... I still haven´t left!

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.
