    Kumba is a very lovely place. The location is great, the accommodation sparkling clean and the staff really friendly and welcoming. Also it was really easy to connect and socialize with other travelers - all in all I had a great time at the hostel and highly recommend everybody to spend some to me here. Special thanks goes to Mariana: sorry for the caused trouble and thank you for your indulgence.

    Had a wonderful stay at Kumba Hostel, highly recommended for all solo-travellers. The staff is super friendly and the facilities are great and cleaned on a rolling basis. Not the best spot if you want to work remotely (understandably, since it's also a cafe attended by many locals), but a great base to enjoy Chania and the West side of the island.

    This is the best hostel I have stayed at in years. The most social ever, by a mile. Clean rooms, great atmosphere and all the amenities you need on a short or long trip.

    About a 20 minute walk to the bus station and 15minutes into the old town but at least the neighborhood was quiet and safe. The little bed capsules were surprisingly spacious and really great! They felt quite private and comfortable. There’s a little kitchen and some nice common areas.

    A decent hostel that could be a really good one. The location is ok, about a 15min walk from old town. The staff are really friendly and helpful. Even with COVID the atmosphere seems alright, if not the most social, mainly because the hostel doubles as a cafe and so always has some locals around. My main complaint would be the bathroom situation: the windowless bathroom beside the dorm is always wet, dank and smelly. The locks on some of the toilet stalls are broken too.
