Property Description

Rethymno Youth Hostel is the hostel to visit when in Greece !

“ Imagine going to the huge island of Crete and then finally arriving in this amazingly ethnic and gorgeous town called Rethymno. You follow the directions and go under the old venetian arch, through an authentic Greek market and finally arrive at this quaint and small paradise of a hostel. There is this large tiled courtyard to sun bathe, a patio to play cards, talk and drink-but most importantly the opportunity to socialize with people and the awesome staff! "

    Everyone who stays here extends their trip because it’s so great. Lovely community vibes, friendly and helpful staff (be warned they go on break from 1-5 so just drop your stuff in the common area and go explore and plan on checking in later in the evening.) The facilities are average but the group atmosphere really makes this place a ten.

    Insanely cheap stay for the quality. The staff are friendly and helpful and good facilities. I loved the TV room. I wish the indoor kitchen was usable (the stove doesn’t work) because the terrace kitchen is so crowded and so dirty. Only 2 grill burners for so many people. The fridge is in dire need of being cleaned - there’s so much old food and it smells so bad. The rooms are super clean and are big! I agree with previous reviews about the hostel being cliquey. There were a few guests who had been there
