Liked: 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 :)

Liked: 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.

Liked: The layout and atmosphere of this hostel is great. The common area, surrounded by olive trees and hammocks is always alive and is the focal place for meeting travellers, cooking and existing in this chilled environment. There's a lot of trust here, down to checking in and the drinks fridge - which is great. Also, Uli (manager) is so welcoming and supportive, and takes time to really show you what they have here and also recommends great ways to explore and experience the area.

Disliked: Nothing, aside from the cooking facilities are camping stoves instead of a kitchen but you work around it easily and it creates a better cooking environment.
