Amazing Hostel! The place has an incredible vibe, with a wonderful manager who makes you feel at home. The Hostel is situated in a perfect location for extraordinary hikes, remarkable clear blue beaches and a great place to meet like minded people. The hostel does not have lockers however there is no need for them as the place is completely safe. I left all my valuables out iPhone, laptop, money and did not feel concerned about it. Overall it is beautiful place! Ill defiently be coming back :)

Liked: The hammocks! Everything was so open and had a wonderful laid back vibe. The first hostel i`ve stayed at that doesn`t have or need lockers. It`s close to the sea and a great space to hang out in and you`ve gotta love the roof! All the people were wonderful and friendly, and the manager Uli will make sure that every day is better than the last. Every day in Plakias is the greatest day of your life. The location is optimal and the hostel has information about all the most wonderful places hidden away from tourists.

Disliked: Dominique left no negative feedback.

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.

Easily the best hostel in Greece! Booked three nights and stayed 10! Great location (plenty to do away from the hustle and bustle!) , facilities (cooking utensils, fridge etc), common area (plenty of seating, hammocks, deck chairs) and events (weekly hostel BBQ's). The manager-Uli, also had exceptional service and was extremely helpful and friendly! I will definitely be back! Highly recommended!
