Property Description

Youth Hostel Plakias - probably the most chilled out hostel in the world and winner of the Hoscar 2015 and 2016 as 'Best Hostel in Greece'.

On the south coast of Crete, Plakias is a world away from the hectic north coast resort towns. Made of up bars and tavernas, surrounded by rivers, gorges and stunning beaches, Plakias is the easiest place to get stuck in; want a beach just for you and your friends? A waterfall you can shower under? Or regular big nights out with your fellow travellers? Then Plakias is for you.

The hostel has six 8-bed dorms set in an olive grove with a large patio for socialising with your new found friends. We have free wi-fi, cheap beer and wine, cheap breakfasts (ideal for hangovers), free use of guitars, snorkels, flippers, river shoes and beach mats. We also have loads of information about the local hikes, beaches and other activities that can be found in and around the area.

So come and take a break from your travels and make some friends in probably the most chilled out place on earth. There's a reason people keep coming back here.

We'll see you soon!

Please note: Reception is open 8.30-12.00 and 18.00-20.00. The hostel itself is open 2 weeks before Easter until the end of October. A late check-in after 8pm is possible.

'Set in an olive grove, this happening hostel goes all-out with hot showers, good music and cheap alcohol, making it a raved-about backpacker oasis. After one day's stay you may hear the sirens singing and never want to leave.'- Let's Go

Latest Review

" Incredible hostel. Only wish it was beach front! But Uli the manager is everything the reviews make him out to be. Friendly, accommodating, helpful, and actively participates in local activities with the guests. He brought us grape picking at a local tavern in the mountains which was an incredible experience! He puts you in a room he thinks you will he most comfortable in! The people there are all super chill and easy to meet, though in September the average age of guests definitely increases. "

Things to Note

PLEASE NOTE:
Plakias is about 100 km far away from Iraklio and Chania at the beautiful south coast of Crete. From Iraklio or Chania you will need two busses: One to Rethymno and another one to Plakias. While the busses
to Rethymno run until midnight the last bus from Rethymno to Plakias is leaving at 6pm in summer and at 2:30pm in March/April.

If you arrive at Iraklio or Chania after 4pm in summer or 12pm in spring you won't be able to catch the last bus to Plakias. In this case we recommend to stay either for one night at the north coast, rent a car or take a taxi from Rethymno (we can send our local taxi driver - price is 35 EUR).

The reception will be open from 8:30am to 12am and from 6pm until about 8pm. If you arrive in the afternoon, please leave your luggage in the reception and enjoy the afternoon. Come back after 6pm for check-in. If you arrive later than 8pm please let us know. We will leave a message in the reception with the information where to find your bed.
Payment in the hostel is only possible in cash - but there are three ATMs in town available
