    Great hostel with a large cafe/ bar area, including indoor and outdoor seating across two levels. A lot of locals populate the cafe/ bar in the evenings, and during the day it's a pretty quiet place if you have to do some work. I enjoyed the location, a short walk from a pretty public beach and about 10 minutes from the central harbor area. It was easy to find grocery stores, restaurants, etc. Beds are comfy and in their own pods, so more private than any other hostel I've stayed at.

    Impeccably clean. Great living situations. Staff allowed me to stay after checking out to charge my phone and keep my luggage there because I had a late flight.

    Kumba Hostel was amazing!! Everything in the hostel was very clean and safe and the staff at the front desk were very kind. The location is an easy 20 minute walk into the beautiful harbor of Chania and there is a bus station outside as well. We would absolutely recommend this hostel to other students traveling to Chania in the future! The coffee from the espresso bar was also delicious :)

    This is one of the best hostel I’ve stayed in Europe. Clean, relaxed and comfy. Shoutout to all the staff and the girls that work there , they make you feel really welcomed and try to help with everything. The location is a bit far from the old town but once you are there you realize this is a good thing as the beach is still close and you are away from the crowded and expensive areas, also there are many bars and restaurants around. The cafe/bar at the hostel is also nice and has good prices
