Description de l’établissement

Youth Hostel Plakias - probably the most chilled out hostel in the world and winner of the Hoscar 2015 and 2016 as 'Best Hostel in Greece'.

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.

A local tour operator is organizing trips to the famous gorges Samaria, Aradena and Imbros.

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 8.30-12.00 and 18.00-20.00.
We are open from spring to late autumn (usually April to November).

A late check-in after 8 pm is possible if you let us know in advance. We will leave a message at the reception with the information where to find your bed.

    The youth hostel Plakias has been by far the best hostel experience I've had until now! Not just because Plakias is a wonderful place, but because Uli, the hostel leader, makes an exceptionnal job! He'll give you the best advices, take you to extraordinary places, make you feel just like home. This is defenitely a place I'll return! Enjoy your stay there!

    Incredible stay at Plakias youth hostel in this end of season. Felt like a little paradise! Manager Uli is so helpful, always of service, taking us on adventures and showing us the best spots on the island. Ate to so many great, authentic Cretan restaurants, been to so many breath-taking beaches, had so many laughs — the perfect stay! You never want to leave. Thank you so, so much!

    The best place you could imagine staying at for a first solo trip experience! And Plakias is amazing to enjoy the Cretan landscapes and go in hikes.

    Great hostel. Uli is the best manager a hostel could hope for. He's always going above and beyond and takes you to hidden places. People are super friendly and of all ages. It's a real family. I have stayed at many many hostel, and never seen one where people come back every year. I get it now, and I want to come back. See you next year :)

    Auberge vraiment simple et agréable. De nombreux espaces pour travailler ou flâner. La wifi est vraiment bien d’ailleurs. Le propriétaire est adorable. Vous êtes de plus, à 5-7 minutes à pieds de la plage et des petits commerces.
