Property Description

Youth Hostel Plakias - probably the most chilled out hostel in the world and winner of the Hoscar 2015 and 2016 as 'Best Hostel in Greece'.

On the south coast of Crete, Plakias is a world away from the hectic north coast resort towns. Made of up bars and tavernas, surrounded by rivers, gorges and stunning beaches, Plakias is the easiest place to get stuck in; want a beach just for you and your friends? A waterfall you can shower under? Or regular big nights out with your fellow travellers? Then Plakias is for you.

A local tour operator is oganizing trips to the famous gorges Samaria, Aradena and Imbros.

The hostel has six 8-bed dorms set in an olive grove with a large patio for socialising with your new found friends. We have free wi-fi, cheap beer and wine, cheap breakfasts (ideal for hangovers), free use of guitars, snorkels, flippers, river shoes and beach mats. We also have loads of information about the local hikes, beaches and other activities that can be found in and around the area.

So come and take a break from your travels and make some friends in probably the most chilled out place on earth. There's a reason people keep coming back here.

We'll see you soon!

Please note: Reception is open 8.30-12.00 and 18.00-20.00. The hostel itself is open 2 weeks before Easter until the end of October. A late check-in after 8 pm is possible if you let us know in advance.

'Set in an olive grove, this happening hostel goes all-out with hot showers, good music and cheap alcohol, making it a raved-about backpacker oasis. After one day's stay you may hear the sirens singing and never want to leave.'- Let's Go

    This is a lovely, well-run hostel set in a quiet rural situation about three hundred metres from the large expansive beach at Plakias in southern Crete. The facilities are all you need for the chill-out rest situation and it was my third visit there. The resort has a good variety of shops and restaurants and the beach has a designated area for those looking for an all-over tan. At about ten euros a night for the spacious dormitory accommodation, its tens across the board/scorecard for Uli and his staff.

    So many characters, young and not so young. A really fun environment and very close to a lot of great walks and beaches. Not a very big kitchen but it works. Uli has created a very special hostel tucked away in Plakias. Highly recommend
