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

Hands down the best hostel experience of my life. Excellent facilities, a beautiful location and the most genuine and caring staff I´ve ever encountered. My original booking was for 2 nights but they managed to accommodate me for 11 despite being fully booked! The atmosphere here is super relaxed and fun. A great place to meet people and chill out. Bit of a journey to get there so do yourself a favour and stay for a week!

I loved my stay here in Plakias! I short walk down to the beach and local restaurants. The vibe of this hostel was incomparable.... even though there were only small locked storage bins, I never felt that my belongings were at risk. The rooftop cabanas and colorful hammocks made it feel like home. Uli was extremely helpful and so kind in offering activities and recommendations! This was a breath of fresh air.

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.
