Property Information:

Youth Hostel Plakias - probably the most chilled out hostel in the world.

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.

'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

    Such an amazing hostel. I booked for 2 nights and stayed 5 - could have easily stayed longer if it wasn't for prebooked flights. After travelling for a month through Croatia and Greece this was by far the best vibe. Don't take my word for it - go!
