Comfy beds, helpful staff. There is however only one mirror in the entire hostel, and the bathrooms are a bit dirty. Also, the dorms are 12-beds, not 10.

I arrived pretty late and exhausted. I do not recommend this if you don't want to join the party. it was a mista on my b half. I think this is an excellent hiatal if you want to get your party on. The bed was really comfortable!

Clean and nice. Great straff and nice with a roof top bar. You can watch the cute swallows as they fly by. I recommend this place and would stay there again.

This is probably one of the best hostel experiences I've ever had. For real. Igor and his team is helpful and a very interesting, and you really do feel at home. The location is not a hassle if you've got an extra 15 minutes to spare (and we all do, don't we?), and you really gain good karma and get to experience the paintings of the hostel and the generally good energy (yes, I said energy!). Clean, fun and free yoga sessions (which I unfortunately didn't take advantage of). Just go, be happy.

autumn & winter season certainly have their charm here, so much time to do things together. thanks for being here, had a lovely time, M.

nice place, a bit far out of chania. but there's a bus which goes very often. not really a hostal, more like a hotel. well, it's called a hotel. decent place to stay, but maybe a bit isolating if your traveling alone. or cool, if you're into that. helpfull and charming staff.

if all the reviews haven't said it: just go. YES, you will extend your stay and YES, you don't want to leave. we were told upon arrival (we were staying for 2 days) that we proabably wanted to extend our stay. we said.. yeah... ended up staying for 8 days. and it's not just about the poeple you meet. i think you could meet anyone here and you'll extend your stay. cool selfservice beer and served breakkie. the best part is that you pay for what you've had at the end of your (extended) stay.

A very good hostel, with the best lounge in the world. As often happens, we had a person who snored incredibly lud, so we snooozed a bitt in the lounge every morning (NB. Only two days). Staff is great, although one staff member was not so great. Veeeeery good pizza!

By far, this is the best hostel that I've ever stayed at. The warmth of the awesome staff, the great location, the random dinners, the beautifully decorated walls (especially the penguions) - it is amazing. I've stayed at a few hostels, even given them 100% here, but it's just not fair. THIS is a hostel worthy of the 100%. I f you're looking for a clean, big and centrally located hostal, always with awesome plans for the evenig - stay here. I extended my stay, you will too.

This is THE dirtiest hostel I've ever stayed in. I would, however, recomend it if you need to stay someplace cheap in Paris and hygene isn't really your thing. I noticed a pile of ants in the bar/reception (because I was crawling on the floor looking for a place to plug in my mac-thingy) and I was like 'eeeew, ants!'. and the staff member just said it was normal. So, I would like to say to all of you crazy backpackers out there: IT'S NOT NORMAL.

this hostel is great, and you can buy beer and drink in the internet room, wich is much cheaper than the bar. only thing is the showers - they suck.

a good place to sleep. we had major problems with the heater, it was either exstremly hot or incredibly cold. but all in all, i would recomend this place for people who need a place to sleep and have a decent shower. it's very expensive, though.

I'm not joking when I say that this is proabably the best hostal I've ever stayed in. The hot, hot, hot shower (Ireland is freeezing, man), the kitchen/common area is very big, but not too big. Beds amazing, staff REALLY amazing. I actually ended up coming back, just because (well, really, because of the hot shower) is was great. Very central, cheap bus from airport leads you right into this cat's mouth. Enjoy.

The hostal is OK. Very cold during the winter. The toilet in the 6-bed dorm that I stayed in was outside (not OUTSIDE outside, but you'd have to leave your room, into the courtyard and into the toilet.) Not that hot. But the staff was amazing and very friendly.

really nice place to stay. there's a 24h bus that takes you directly into the center of ol' london. also about a 30 min. walk to camden town and crazy markets. there were a bunch of schools staying at the hostel when i was there, though, so not your average party hostel.

i like the bar. the rooms are very, very tiny, so a good hostel for sportif and tiny people i guess. sportif since stairs will kill you. but really it\'s a good work-out. the bar is cool. i said that. the staff depends. most of the staff that i met were incredible although i experienced of being treated like air several times.

this was a great hostel. you know when people write that the hostel was just like staying at a friends house? well, this is like staying at your moms house. in a good and free kind of way, of course. madame smith is amazing, and always ask if you need anything. the atmosphere is so relaxed, and when you ask if there a curfew her answer is that if your quiet when you get back, there is no curfew. hilarious. was going to stay for two night ended up staying for over a week. :
