Liked: Relaxed atmosphere. Terrace. Scrupulously clean showers/toilets. Plenty of washing lines and pegs plus area for washinh clothes. Central location in old town. Helpful managers. Very reasonably priced breakfast optionst available to buy ( 2 euros plus 1 for a hot drink) very hot solar heated water throughout the day. Beds on the roof if wanted. Fans in rooms. Blankets. Cheap beer. Accessible 24 hours. Close to beach. Cheaper if you book via hostel. 60 euros for a week

Disliked: Creaky steep, narrow wooden staircase to dorms on top floor which made it noisy if your room was nearby. Quite noisy first few nights but quietened down.

Liked: Stefan and Alex are awesome and so helpful! Also, the various 'regulars' at the hostel were such an awesome crowd! It is well located, and a fun place to be! Even though the weather was not so good during my all too brief visit, I enjoyed myself so much that I'm definitely going back some day!

Liked: Excellent price. Good atmosphere, easy to meet people and have a few drinks. Location is great too.

Disliked: The 6 bed dorm I was in was very cramped, it shouldn't have had more than 4 people in there. Bathroom a bit too far away. Other than that, it was great.

Liked: 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.

Disliked: All of the rooms were stuffed with bunk beds, so make sure to leave your personal space at home and bring earplugs and a luggage lock. I was in one of the smaller rooms with 3 bunks, which made it really cramped with belongings and hot when fully occupied, despite the fan.

Liked: This hostel became my home base while I was traveling in Crete. It's clean, located in a central spot in Rethymnon's Old Town, and its common areas are perfect for meeting fellow travelers. But what really sets the hostel apart is its staff. Alex, George, and Alex are absolutely lovely people who create the warmest environment you could ask for. Each of them goes out of their way to make guests feel welcome - directing guests to the best gyros on the block, recruiting them as taste-testers for a batch of pancakes, and just taking the time to talk to guests about their travels and about their lives. Be sure to ask (manager) Alex to show you his dance moves. They are life-changing. In short, this is exactly what a hostel should be.
