Liked: Right in the middle of the old town, yet in a calm street. Bunk beds, but really comfortable. Though the hostel was full and truly crowded, they somehow manage to keep the toilets and showers clean. Great value for money.

Disliked: No air condition in the dorms. Only a ceiling vantilator. Not the best for such hot climate.

Liked: Fantastic hostel. I arrived very early after my overnight ferry, and was able to check in and get a much-needed nap in. Hostel facilities are basic, but a great value! Atmosphere was chill and fun.

Liked: Really cheap place to stay, great location!

Disliked: You get what you pay for... small rooms shared with 6 people, very hot, no AC, just a small fan on the ceiling and lots of mosquitos. The power would go out at night, and the wifi was bad.

Liked: I don't usually write reviews but I just need to make an exception hereSo I planned to stay a few nights, and wound up staying for ****2 months****. No joke I wound up LIVING there. The whole setup makes it really easy to meet people, and unlike most places people are quick to include 'strangers' in their day plans/trips. Compared to the other hostels on Crete you will not find a better atmosphere, better staff, better breakfast. It really attracts a lot of chill people and is really laid back. ALEXXX is awesome and makes bangin omelette and French toast. If you're lucky you might be there for a really unique BBQ night. It's a good location to go around Rethymno AND to set as a base for day(s) trips all over the island because of its central location. Conditions are good for what you pay for -- it's a hostel (not 5 star hotel) that's constantly being cleaned and has decent showers and bunk beds. If you are very lucky you might get a chance to meet the sweetest manager Ivan before he returns to Serbia. I have too much to say about this place that I put off writing this for so long. GO! sTAY HERE if. You are a chill friendly person who's not afraid to wind up feeling so at home that you extend your stay for days (or months). You won't be disappointed!!! Also shout out to owner Manolis who knows everything on the island, and to Ljubinka for working so damn hard keeping the place clean; Seriously when on Crete there's no better hostel to stay at

Disliked: nothing at all because i didn't expect anything MORE than you should for such an affordable hostel! (like private rooms or A/C or the sound of people having a good tme)
