This hostel was wonderful. The room we received had all of the modern amenities including a mini kitchen and a bathroom with its own water heater (very important). The location was in the middle of the beautiful historic district and was surrounded by shops and restaurants. Make sure to read the email with the directions because it is very easy to get lost.


The location of Smaragdi is perfect. You would be hard pressed to find a hostel better situated. The rooms were very nice and clean, and the people running the hostel were extremely helpful. Although bus terminal/port pick up was not available, we were provided with walking directions to the hostel which were very helpful. I would highly recommend one night at Smaragdi just to experience staying right in the center of town.


Very nice, small hotel in the heart of the old town of Chania. The room was clean and had everything we needed. The hostess was really friendly and polite. The location is perfect. The price of the room was reasonably. We would recommend this place!


It's a great place. Excellent price and very comfortable and super clean. Our room had coffee facilities, Air con, TV. It was Lush! Great value for money. Excellent location, in a very charming road on the old Town. We arrived very late, because our flight was a bit late, but when we arrived someone was still waiting for us. He was very friendly. On check out, the manager Georgia gave us some olive oil soap which was made by a friend of her. It was lovely! We hope to come back soon. Thanks!!

Great location on the cutest little street. Tons of markets, restaurants and stores nearby. Great value for the money. And Georgia the owner was great, she even gave us a goodbye gift.
