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.

I can´t say enough about this place! It has a very relaxed environment, situated in a quiet spot away from the main drag, that comes to life at night. While I was there, we had a huge BBQ and got one of the musicians staying there to put on a performance. Uli, the hostel manager, was extremely friendly and accommodating. In the evenings, he´d mingle with all the guests over a few beers. Plaxias is the perfect place for relaxation as well as outdoor activities.

WOW. I loved this place. When on Crete you need to stay here. Uli is fantastic, friendly and knows a lot about the area. The rooms are tidy and well maintained, lockers in the room, decent beds, you can even sleep outside if you wish. The bathrooms are detached but in good condition and clean. Great atmosphere. A very social hostel, you get to know everyone! Good group BBQs too! People keep coming back here and now I think I am going to be one of them! TOPS!

This place is what hostels are supposed to be about; really relaxed communal living and lots of fun if you´re looking for it. There´s also a lot of lovely places to see close by. I had a great time and would highly recommend staying here

Each person likes and dislikes hostels for various reasons, but this hostel was the best experience I´ve ever had with a hostel. My 2 nights turned into 5 and I would´ve loved more. Uli the hostel manager will do whatever he can for you, clean bathrooms and dorms, and breakfast can be cooked for you or plenty of utensils to cook yourself. Laundry for 3 euros if desired and the location of the hostel is right next to everything in this small, but fantastic city of Plakias. Don´t miss this hostel!
