    11/10. Jacob and Joseph do an incredible job of running the place. It was so good I came back just a few days later. Great value for money and has the perfect communal area for meeting people. Can’t really fault it, the beds and bathrooms were clean, the rooms had aircon, great location and could do my laundry there. If I was to do Crete again I’d base myself here for the entire trip. It’s a place I’d come back to without hesitation in the future.

    The staff was awesome and so helpful! There are so many cool things to do in rethymno, any tour can be booked from there, it's close to the beach, and right inside old town where all the shops are, and the atmosphere is great, there's always people around to talk to. Highly recommend!!

    Nice hostel with lots of showers and good location and well air conditioned. Kitchen facilities for guests aren’t great (camping gas burners) but you can get by. Water smells pretty bad

    it's a nice hostel with two kitchens and two bathroom areas. the staff were friendly and booked a tour for us, and it's in a good location. the only thing for me was the last night, when the power went out at like 12am. some (male) staff came into our (female) dorm and climbed up to my top bunk near my head, reached over me in the dark and yanked my charger out of the wall. my charger did not cause the outage, and this move didn't fix it. i was the only one who received this treatment. strange

    Great location near the core and easy to walk around. Staff was friendly and willing to help. We only stayed there for one night. I personally think they need to change the sheets and pillows for new ones. They didn’t feel clean enough to me and I slept on and under my personal towels instead. The friend I travelled with said she didn’t mind the sheets but I’m making the comment for anyone out there who is a clean-freak like me.
