George & Nota - managers were very helpful, Our ferry was delayed and by the time we got to Ierapetra, it was late and there were no buses available, they were very kind to pick us up (it is a 20 min drive from Makrigialos). We were told that the room we booked had some problems and they gave us a much better place instead :-). They were very helpful in many ways. The place itself is close to the beach (pebble beach) but one can get to sandy beach after a 5 minute walk. There are couple of georges close by which can be accessed by foot or by car. Overall, a good experience.
Clean, well-equipped apartment, with kitchen, TV, AC, and instant hot water. Beachfront (rocky beach) but less than 5 minute walk to nice sandy beach. We had a bit of trouble finding it, so we asked at a local market and they called George to come and get us. Manager onsite, which was helpful bc the power went out twice ( George quickly restored it). Makrysgialos is about 1.5 hours driving from Heraklion, however, the beach was nearly empty and the townspeople VERY friendly! We enjoyed the slow pace of life there and had the opportunity to go to another popular beach town in the north, which was packed with people and nerve wracking to walk through. We would recommend Ikaros and makrygialos to anyone going to Crete, it was the highlight of Greece for us as well as being our least expensive accomodations there!

The most chilled out hostel in the world! The common area, hammocks and sun beds in the garden with olive trees... Just brilliant. Nice cheap breakfast. Great atmosphere, easy to meet people. I stayed 10 nights there and could have easily stayed much longer. Looking forward to coming back here :)
The hammocks! Everything was so open and had a wonderful laid back vibe. The first hostel i've stayed at that doesn't have or need lockers. It's close to the sea and a great space to hang out in and you've gotta love the roof! All the people were wonderful and friendly, and the manager Uli will make sure that every day is better than the last. Every day in Plakias is the greatest day of your life. The location is optimal and the hostel has information about all the most wonderful places hidden away from tourists.

We were pleasantly shocked when we arrived at Axos, thinking we would be in a cheap backpackers as usual for the price we'd paid. However, Axos is a very nice hotel in a great location with nice spacious rooms and a pool. The staff were friendly and the area is a cool little beachy village.
The staff were very friendly, the rooms were very clean, and it was only a short walk from the beach! Great value for the money!

Excellent price. Good atmosphere, easy to meet people and have a few drinks. Location is great too.
Loved the atmosphere and staff as well as the people staying. Everyone was very friendly and hardworking. George, one of the employees, made it a point to remember my name, which is a small thing, but after staying in many hostels and seeing the amount of people in and out of there, it was no easy task and it was appreciated. Overall, the hostel layout itself had a few quirks (I.e. Outdoor bathrooms and a few large outdoor bedrooms), but for the rate per night and environment it was absolutely wonderful.

I liked the Place. The village was nice, the beach wonderful, the water lovely, the rooms were clean and well-shapes, the owner very friendly end helpful. Wie likes our stay very much.
The location is amazing, the owners are helpful and friendly, and the low price is not reflected by the standard of accommodation. I would highly recommend the apartments, and would be more than happy to return.

Owners are very friendly and greeted us with fresh orange juice. The property has a very unique and traditional feel compared to other places we stayed. The owners are very informative and helped us booked a trip to Samaria Gorge. Very close to the beach and a strip full of cafes and restaurants.
Swimming pool was refreshing and almost always empty. Lovely common areas, decorations inside the pension. Lots of spice herbs around and cosy atmosphere - all the people we met here were relaxed and super friendly. The best however was the owner and his friendly advise that took us to lots of great places we would have not found on our own.

It was a wonderful atmosphere, and the staff were very friendly. The privacy of having an apartment-style room was very nice too, and they were kind enough to upgrade our accommodation to a 1-bedroom apartment from a studio apartment for free.
Really really nice place to be. Very clean, 3 big pools and a nice atmosphere everywhere on the site. Be carefull though to not book your excursions at the reception of the hotel because the prices are highter.

Dorm was clean, had its own kitchenette and spotless washroom. Heating worked well for the cold nights. Located on a quiet street 2 minutes walk from the centre.
Great value. Quiet and central location. Basic rooms but at least you have your privacy.

The Staff was extremely welcoming. Breakfast was outstanding. Our rooms were large and clean. We would definitely return to this facility.
Fantastic pool, lovely room, great balcony, helpful staff - we could not believe how little we had paid for this place compared with the niceness of our surroundings. We had to walk down and then up the hill to Ag Nik - if you were being picky this would matter, but to us we enjoyed the view. We felt lucky to be there and really enjoyed the cats.

Beautiful setting surrounded by mountains and short walk into town. Pool area stunning, quiet and restful when we went. There was a lockable safe, Tv if you wanted it, fridge and good programmable air conditioning. Lovely vine covered patio at front for picnic lunches or evenings , and some shaded parking under trees washing line at rear Cleaned daily favoured by quiet travellers at the time we went which we preferred freindly and efficient staff
Very quiet and friendly, great location, perfect to rest, yet very close to the beach and the busy centre of the village. Very basic conditions, but everything what is needed is there. We loved our stay, Matala is a beautiful place, especially in April!
