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! "

Rethymno Youth Hostel has always been the most sociable landmark since tourism started on the island of Crete years ago and a home away from home for travellers who wish to make new friends and discover from its very central position the endless natural and historical beauties of Crete.

Our helpful staff will always be there to offer you the best tips .

Entering from the street you will find a historical Venetian building - overlooking one of the towns imposing minarets - with stone walls and wooden floors upstairs. Downstairs there is a beautiful patio surrounded by the green of our gardens for relaxation.

We are set within a peaceful neighborhood in the heart of Rethymno old town yet close to town's gorgeous long (10 km) sandy beach and the whole island's most exciting nightlife !

In the evening you can chill out on our patio ,make use of our free WiFi , cook meals for yourselves or have a drink with your fellow travellers before heading out to the local bars and restaurants.

You all have no idea how amazing this hostel is. It is right in the middle of beautiful Old Town but on a quiet and peaceful street with no traffic noise. The hostel itself is gorgeous and kept under meticulous and warm family management. The place is super clean, social, comfortable, and lively. Almost everyone books one or two nights and can't help but extend, some staying for months. It's a home away from home and I couldn't be more grateful to Joseph and Nicolas for the past six weeks.

One of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed at in every way. I extended my stay and could honestly live there for months. There’s so much to do, the atmosphere is 10/10, the staff is great, the location is perfect, and it’s very clean. You won’t find a better hostel than this and I recommend booking for more days than you think you need because you won’t want to leave this place.

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Kostas is amazing worker, and so is everyone else! It's in the middle of the old town and everything is within walking distance. I could literally live there if it wasn't for my responsibilities back home. Especially since it's affordable!
