The covers/ blanket were not warm enough, we got cold during the night even though we used all the spare blankets which were in the closet. Otherwise everything was as promised

The Hotel staff were very helpful and went out of their way to make staying with them and seeing Crete as easy and enjoyable as possible. I was very happy with everything they had to offer.

So close to the beach! The staff was very friendly and helpful. Would love to go back again.


Chania indeed is one of the most awesome that I've been. Everyone is very friendly and helpful.Besides that, the beaches are awesome. Niiris's staff were very friendly and helpful as well.As soon as we arrived,they already gave us a map and some useful information about transportation,food,beaches and etc... In the future,I would like to bring more friends to chania to introduce them to this awesome place and I hope stay in Niiris Hotel . P.S:niiris is 5 min walking from a beautiful beach

Niriis Hotel was amazing! George was the best host I have ever come across in my travels. His excursion to Elafonisi Beach was awesome; he stopped many times along the way to show us great views and explain culture, history, and current events about Chani, Crete, and even Greece as a whole. His brother once even gave us a ride into downtown Chania because he was heading that way! The hotel is extremely close to a few nice beaches and close to two large supermarkets as well. Niriis was great!


I recommend getting lockers in the dorms, basic hostels have metal boxes and visitors supply their own locks (sell them at the desk also). The better hostels have electronic cards (instead of door keys) which also open lockers. Maybe start a bookshelf-exchange (your books had to be returned, but when I travel I leave a book and sometimes take one). For me your character out weighs anything bad about the hostel and it is why I write this review, its the first review and probably the only
