Plakias isn´t a place - it´s a way of life
10.0
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.

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.

Relaxation and adventure!
5 stars

Plakias provides the perfect amount of relaxation and adventure, and YH Plakias is the place to go for both! It`s set in an olive grove with hammocks strung between the trees, close to one of the main beaches and others that are for the more adventurous. You have to go on the four hour river hike - it`s a blast climbing up waterfalls and literally hiking in the river. Don`t be fooled though, as it is a challenge. Read more about Plakias here:
