2014-09-01 Dominique Pashley would recommend this property

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.

Loved the hostel. It has a chilled relaxed vibe, great common area for guests to socialize. Location is well placed and is within walking distance to everything in Plakis. Hostel manager Uli is very knowledgable of Crete and always willing to help you with your plans. I had originally planned to stay for 3 nights and ended up staying for nearly two weeks. This is a great hostel and I can´t recommend it enough for your stay in Plakis or Rethymno.

By far one of the most excellent hostels I’ve ever stayed at in all my travels. It’s a little slice of heaven with the most amazing staff, truly a little family. All good vibes in this place I couldn’t say one thing negative if I tried. Extended my stay like you will too and fell completely in love with everything about it. I cried when I left and am counting the days until I can get back. Uli you’re an amazing human being thanks for every little thing that you do to make this place magical.

We didn´t plan coming on Plakias and now we don´t plan on ever leaving
The plakias hostel is the best hostel I´ve ever stayed in. You could stay here for a month easy. The place is nice, with a little kitchen and a big communal area where everyone hangs out. The Location is awesome. The beaches, mountains, gorge and villages are great and you can hike or drive. The atmosphere is perfect - we had a big barbecue where everyone cooked together and Uli took me and some travellees to an amazing village taverna. I will be back for sure, I hope sooner not later!
