“Great Hostel”
Reviewed 21 May 2013

I was here in May 2013 and not only was there a great community of people from all over staying here but the hostel itself was amazing as well. It doesn't have your typical hostel layout which is great, the layout takes advantage of the great outdoor space they have. Also VERY clean and they make some great food if you decide to order it.

Reviewed 21 June 2012

This small but quaint hostel is filled with life. Many of the guests are there for closer to 6 weeks than to 1 and it functions much more like a small community. Everyone looks out for eachother and it was so lovely to be apart of it.

Plakias is such a cheap place to visit and you dont really miss the fact that there is no kitchen. I believe it is a sort of deal with the town that they wont have a kitchen if the town doesnt raise food prices and it seems to be working well for both parties.

There is lots to do in and around Plakias and to venture further, renting a car is really cheap.
Plakias is by far my favourite place on Crete and reccomend everyone to visit once in their life. I doubt you will stop at once though!

Oh and the dorm rooms are really comfortable!
