    One of the best hostels I've ever been to. The staff is super friendly and ready to give good tips for exploring the islands. The atmosphere is great as there is a terrace and another cosy open area where to socialize. Also the location is really good being in the very city centre of Rethymno and close to the waterfalls and other good places to visit. I am definitely recommending this hostel.

    Perfect location. Very clean. Extremely friendly/helpful staff. Great hostel for meeting other travelers. Just hang out upstairs in the common area around 7:30 - 8pm and you will meet people for games + dinner.

I went out for meals with other travellers and all the staff were so helpful and friendly! The location is perfect and the rooms are very clean, loved the big lockers under the bed for my bag. Cannot fault this hostel and would love to come back in the future!! Thank you!!

    I have traveled to 35 countries and so far it's been one of the best hostels I have ever been to. One thing you need to know is that the hostel is run by very passionate people who literally thought about every detail, so the hostel would suit solo travelers, digital nomads, just normal kiddos on vacy. The hostel is extremely clean, located just in the heart of the city, 10 mins from the bus station and 10 mins from the seaside. Love it
