About Youth Hostel Plakias
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.
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 8.00-12.00 and 18.00-20.00. The hostel itself is open 2 weeks before Easter until the end of October.
"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
We are situated Plakias, a quiet backwater away from the hectic north coast of Crete. Some people stay for the wonderful walks in the area.
It is still possible to wander off to a lonely beach and see nobody all day. The mountains are for the more energetic. There are also special places known only to the hostel where you can swim in freshwater pools and shower under waterfalls. Then again, some people stay for the beach and the nightlife.
