I checked every evaluation box as "excellent" for a reason. Stepping into this hostel is like coming home for those of us who have been on the road for a while. The atmosphere is immediately welcoming and fun. Many of the folks that we met had come to the Plakias Youth Hostel once, and then never stopped coming back, year after year, and are the best travel guides on the whole island. Stay here, chat with people, hang out with Uli the manager, and you will have an amazing time.

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!

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.
