    The hostel is really nice and has a beautiful roof! The rooms are simple but very clean. The staff was cool and super helpful. I forgot my flip flops in my room and Ioannis stored them for me for a couple of days until I was back in Heraklion so I could pick them up. Thank you!

    I came here at the end of a long trip, and I was very grateful for how clean and easy everything was. The staff are also very helpful and accommodating. The roof top patio is an added bonus. If you are going through Heraklion, for sure stay here.

    Fantastic location, nice roof terrace. I felt the young fellow with the 70's haircut could have been a little more friendly, but he was very cool.

    So Young was a blimmin lovely place to stay! I met two other solo travellers who I ended up spending the next two weeks with in Crete up on the lovely roof deck. Hostel is in a perfect location close to everything and was a lovely introduction to the island. Spotlessly clean and comfortable, absolutely recommend!

    Only stayed one night on my way to Chania, from what I saw the hostel was good and centrally located for the town centre and port. LockerS and curtain for dorm rooms. Wifi and key codes for access. Check in was fast and efficient.

    The beds in the dorms were actually quite large and sturdy rather than the typical metal shaky bunks. There is a rooftop which is a great place to hang out and socialize. Definitely the best and cleanest hostel I have stayed at recently.
