    I liked the lady, the owner of the hostel. She seems to know what backpacking travellers need. She was very helpful. I liked her.

    This hostel is very conveniently located in the city center. The amenities are basic but everything you would need. In the "kitchen" area, there were some little toasts and jams you could use. The coolest part is the upper patio that has a ton of bunk beds that anyone can hang out or sleep in. The only problem is I got back very early in the morning from a night out, and the front door was locked, and we weren't given a key or told it would close. Had to wait for someone to come to let me in.

    Amazing hostel, wonderful staff. Would definitely stay there again. One of the best hostels in Heraklion. Great location - only a few minutes walk from the pier or bus station. You can sleep on the roof if you want!

    My friend and I booked this hostel for a super last-minute one-night stay when our travel plans changed unexpectedly and it was wonderful. The family that runs the place was very kind and our fellow hostel-ers were great to talk to. Nice clean, spacious rooms with lockers for your stuff and a cool open-air seating area. Great location close to food and transport as well.

    The rooms are clean and there is a nice outside area to relax and meet new people. A little kitchen clean-up could be done but would still recommend this hostel :)!!

    It was impossible to sleep.. be aware, I heard rumours about this place and it was true.. apparently in one of the rooms lives a girl who has some issues. First time l was really scared. During the night she was jumping out of upper bed, arguing that some took her things, smoking cigarettes in the room , walking really loudly, the rumour has it that she is stealing as well.. so if you are girl think twice if you wanna sleep at night and feel safe 😊

    Very good location however at check in they keep your passport for the entirety of your stay. The staff say that the A/C is only turned on from 10pm-10am, however I woke up my first night at 2am very uncomfortable with no A/C, when it was on, it would not be lower than 27C. Atmosphere is not very conducive to meeting people and be prepared for most of the guests to be aged 35-55 or older. Bathrooms were not very clean or kept up. Communal kitchen area was a plus and homemade marmalade was nice

    I was surprised by the high rating of this hostel. If you’re just there for a quick night it would be fine. But longer than a day wasn’t great. It was hard to meet people and the people that were there were significantly older. I felt like I was the youngest. The bathrooms need an update and a really good cleaning. The kitchen wasn’t great.
