You are basically sharing a holiday flat. There is a little kitchen and a fridge. The owner is very helpful. The place is not in Iraklio, though, but a few kilometers out of town. At night it is quiet.


NOthing good about this place except the location and the fact of being the only cheap hostel in the area.


The location of this hostel was subpar - on a beach next to a power plant (dumping something in?) with lots of shabby tourist trap places. The facilities are blah. The staff was OK and helpful on getting a cab, but pointed us to a restaurant that was the worst I went to in Crete (did he get a kickback or just have poor taste)? You can find better. Also the map is wrong - this is FAR FROM THE PORT.


Fragiskos was an amazing host and went out of his way to collect us when we were lost. Overall a very good hotel and good transport links to central Heraklion on the number 1 bus.


Fragiskos(the manager) was super friendly and congenial. The place ok. Pool is awesome.


The downfalls for this place are more a function of Heraklion than the hotel itself. There does not seem to be anywhere in Heraklion for young travelers, so this hotel seemed like the best alternative. Once you get out to the hotel (30-45 minute bus ride from airport), it is pretty great. A short walk to the beach and many restaurants. It was also nice to have a private room with kitchen and a pool at the hotel.


Very good hotel

Excellent accommodation!


Great place to stay when traveling! The rooms were very clean and there was a kitchen. The Staff were very friendly as well! Great value for the money.


This place was very nice. The staff was very helpful. They waited for us since our ferry was late and they helped arrange cabs and tourist directions. I wish it was closer into town and that the wifi worked in the rooms.


Not a good spot for backpackers. It's very far out of the city (check the hostel world map, not Google maps which is very wrong). This is more of a hotel for couples and families. Honestly, it's not really Manos Studios fault, backpackers shouldn't stay in Heraklion at all. Go to Rethymno!


Lovely Stay at Manos Studios! Very comfortable room for the price we paid with well equipped kitchen, bathroom and patio overlooking the pool. The manager, Fragiskos, was very helpful and even sent me by phone changer which i left behind! Thanks for a great stay!

Quite far out of town (Google maps has the wrong location - make sure you check the hostelworld.com map). Very near the beach, friendly staff and a comfortable stay.


Pros The gentleman who ran the hostel was excellent in giving advice and making me feel welcome The room had a kitchenette which I did not expect The location is perfect, right by clubs, bars, restaurants and the beach is very close The room was very clean and came with extra pillows and blankets The number 6 bus from the airport stops almost directly outside the hostel Cons There are loud dogs near by (which obviously can't be helped) The fridge was quite loud during the night
