    Location is brilliant, right off the main pedestrian street and about 15 min walk to the port. The lady that owns the place is lovely and friendly. Not really a kitchen to speak of, just a fridge sink and hot plate because of COVID. Rooms are big with lockers in the rooms and little balcony. Rooftop terrace nice and good place for a chat and there’s also beds up there. Only problem was only 3 showers and if place was full might’ve been a problem but I loved it, would come back no problem.

    Amazing value for money! Some of the people there were a bit unfriendly but that’s not a reflection on the staff and the place on the slightest. Would definitely come back again ☺️

    I liked the location - very close to everything. The only thing showers could be newer, but for one night it's OK. My room was quite big with a big window and a mirror. Would sleep there again.

    It was alright, nothing great but no complaints. Good location, just lacking a bit of atmosphere but it had a nice rooftop to chill at. Not sure how I feel about the beds in the open air on the roof though

    This place is best suited for 1 night, 2 at the max. The rooms are large and don’t have many electrical slots except near the door. It is an old building, and does still work as a hostel, but just needs some upgrades and could become very nice, especially considering the lack of hostels in Heraklion. It does have lockers to store things, and the front door is accessible via entrance key or buzz in by reception, so there’s that for security.

    Stayed just one night to catch a ferry out of Heraklion. A cute family hostel, but very rudimentary.

    It seems like this hostel is a really old house with zero maintenance, the rooms and facilities were not nice at all. The beds were old, noisy and uncomfortable. It smelled like mold and dust. The showers were scary and old. The ”kitchen” was just a table with old fruits and a fridge. The owner was nice and welcoming, but the place did not meet any expectations.

    The hostel is very old and a few features like a plug at the bed or a night light at the bed are non existent. The old lady at the reception helped me with some of my questions but I felt like not very welcome. It was ok for one night but I would stay longer.
