Plakias Paradise
5 stars
Reviewed 2015-04-23

I had a wonderful time in Plakias! I was originally booked in for three nights and ended up staying almost two weeks- a common occurrence here. There are lots of incredible hikes and beaches in the area so every day can be a different adventure. Uli was great! He provided lots of information about how to get to Plakias, including which side of the bus to sit on so that you have the best view. He also takes people out to different towns for dinner so that you can taste some of the phenomenal food Crete has to offer. Clean hostel, comfortable beds and a wonderful atmosphere.

Stayed April 2015, travelled solo
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.

Plakias youth hostel its much more than a ´ hostel. It attracts the most wonderful people you will ever meet. Nestled in the beautiful scenery, yet minutes from the beach, plakias Y.H. offers a variety of activities. It´s perfect for all ages, from those who want to just chill out, to those who are looking for energetic activities. Whichepver group you belong to, Plakias Y.H.a perfect ´ home´, in the real sense. Having planned two weeks there, I extended my stay for a third week. ´I´ll Be Back´

This hostel is one of those rare and special places where you feel immediately welcomed and are given the opportunity to make genuine connections to the people and place. I feel so blessed to have found this beautiful community of people in Plakias. Of all the places I have travelled in the past month, this one I will miss the most. Thank you to everyone who made this hostel so special and for all the adventures that were had. I will be reccomending this hostel to everyone, and I hope to return

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.
