Youth Hostel Rethymno was by far my favorite hostel throughout my 3 month adventure in Europe. I don't even have enoug room to write all of the great things I'd like to! George and Alex are awesome, extremely warm and welcoming and truly set the vibe for the hostel. George cooks awesome and cheap breakfast every morning, the hostel is in a great location, extremely clean, great atmosphere , near a ton of great attractions in Crete. I cannot wait to come back!!

This hostel was the best place I've ever stayed. If your looking to experience real Cretan beauty with other travelers, definitely come here. Alex, George and the other Alex (although I only met her briefly) really make you feel like your home and are always filled with suggestions about possible adventures and who to hang out with from the hostel. I loved my time here and wish I could go back. Alex works really hard to satisfy everyone's needs and George always has a kind words to say…

Good place to stay overall, probanly one of the most social hostels I've stayed at. Rooms are very cramped though and the wifi was completely unusable.

it truly doesn't get better than this hostel. This hostel is actually a true living hostel. I highly recommend this place hands down. I extended my stay for 10 days. I feel in love with this hostel I didn't want to level. It was hard to say good bye to the staff here. Thank you gorge and thank you Alex (s). Enjoy that butter!

Great hostel! A little run down but what can you expect for 10 euro a night. Perfectly clean just kinda old but whatever. Pretty deck to hang out on and drink at night, and the BEST people work here. So helpful and friendly, and George will make you bomb French toast for 3 euro. Rethymo is a cool little town, pretty and good for day trips to awesome beaches and other stuff. And seriously 10 euro so cheap

We loved the experience, we loved the guests and the staff, Alex gave great advice on where to go and what to do, the central locale was brilliant. We cried when it was time to leave and will be back as soon as possible! Backpackers paradise so much fun the atmosphere could not be replicated due to the staff out look, behaviour and hospitality. It was a crowded hectic environment which added excitement to every day. George's omelettes were great, Ms Alex was engaging beautiful & vivacious. Xxxxx

What a perfect place to stay and make friends! Rethymno felt like home with cosy rooms, excellent, funny and caring staff. Located in a picturesque part of the town, in a close proximity to everything you may want. I Definitely recommend.

Great hostel, easy location to find (under the arch 1st st. to the right), comfortable dorm, staff, clean, value all excellent. They kept it quiet at night & I liked that the bathroom/showers were on a different level, less noise. The reception area is the kitchen/hang-out area inside but there is an outside patio as well as a courtyard downstairs. The only thing I didn't like was that people smoked outside on the patio so there was no where else to eat your breakfast at a table. Bfast extra.

Very good location in the city center. The staffs are very nice and helpful. The room is good however it's very hot during the day and the night. The don't have lockers or shelf to put your stuff in the room. The bathroom was big.

Comfortable, laid back hostel with friendly staff, lots of info about what to do and how to get around. Short walk from everything you could need. Just one thing - you can't drink booze from outside the hostel, which is fine, but I'd have preferred if they had more on offer.

Only had time to spend one night here on this occasion, but will definitely be back! This place was recommended by a friend who had stayed here, and she wasn't exaggerating when she said that it was the friendliest place she had ever stayed. The atmosphere is terrific and the staff (Alex, George and Alex) go out of their way to make you feel at home.

The staff of this hostel is most excellent. The manager Alex is a wonderful host and probably one of the best chefs Ive ever met. His coworkers Alexandra and George are always doing their best to make the guests stay happy. George's breakfast smoothies, orange-pancakes and omelettes are delicious. I can really recommend staying in this place, its a lovely athmosphere and you wont miss home as you're feeling like being part of a big family in Rethymno Youth Hostel.

Great location and atmosphere! The staff is also very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Rethymno Youth Hostel is a good base to explore different parts of the island. There aren't any lockers in the rooms but I always felt like my things were safe. The bathrooms are in a whole other building than the dorms which wasn't too convenient but not as difficult as I though it would be. Make sure to cover your pillow with a towel or your own linens because I noticed they don't wash the cases.

Nice enough hostel. Bathroom facilities a little janky, but not horrible.
