    Great location, good vibe. Lovely balcony to sit on. Was able to leave my luggage with them before checking in and afterwards. Classic hostel situation. Good for a night or two.

    Awesome place. I know Eirini very well and she always takes care of me when I need anything. The location is amazing as it’s super central, the price is really cheap and you get the option of staying in a room or on the rooftop which is a interesting experience in the summer time. I will definitely come back as a I love Heraklion and have many friends there. Thanks Eirini and will see you when I come back there as always. Tom.

    Hostel is absolutely fantastic. Staff are lovely, and the location is to die for - super easy to get to the ferry terminal, airport, and bus station, as well as right by a popular area with nice shops and restaurants. Plus, the beach is only about a 20-30 minute walk away. They have kitchen facilities in a nice area, and all of the bathrooms and bedrooms are nice and clean. That's without even mentioning the rooftop area! I absolutely loved it here :)

    They have beds in the roof. Location can't be better. 10 min away from bus. 15 from port. Owner was so kind as i booked wrong date but they gave me missing night free of charge. I still paid for 2 nights ofc. Building is huge. Kitchen. Showers. Bathrooms. They have everything you need for a pleasant stay.

    Pretty nice hostel in the heart of Heraklion. The most special thing about the place is the rooftop and the fact that you can even sleep there. I didn't like showers much, they were too small. Also kitchen could have been bigger and equiped with more stuff but i didn't cook there anything, there are restaurants all around the place. Also bear in mind it's quite far away from the closest bus stop to the airport and there is no beach in walk distance. Overall it's a fine choice.

    They take your passport as a deposit when you arrive so if you’re leaving before 8am make sure you check out the night before! The reception is supposed to open at 8 and I was in a rush to get a flight - no one was there…thankfully made it! Lind of strange hostel but really nice vibes with the central area bringing everyone together :)

    Now this is not the worst hostel, but it definitely feels a little weird. There was the option to sleep on the roof and since it was super hot we took it, but there were no assigned beds so it was a little chaotic. The hostel itself doesn't really have an area where to interact with other people and only very minimal food preparation space. The showers were fine, but there wasn't really any space to dry and change in privacy after showering. In a city where tapwater there was no water dispenser.

    The staff was not super friendly. They kept our passports and drivers licenses, which we found out later from a local man is illegal. The hostel ran out of toilet paper for an entire night for 20+ people. They advertise air conditioning, yet there was none and we were sleeping in 35+ degrees. The name of the hostel says “youth” yet there is no age limit and we saw several older men (45+) roaming about during our stay. The location was pretty convenient. The beds on the roof are a nice touch.
