Welcome to the southernmost hostel in Europe - a place for fun, for adventure or just relaxing.
Plakias is a quiet backwater away from the hectic north coast of Crete. Some people stay for the wonderful walks in the area. It is still possible to wander off to a lonely beach and see nobody all day. The mountains are for the more energetic. There are also special places known only to the hostel where you can swim in freshwater pools and shower under waterfalls. Then again, some people stay for the beach and the nightlife.
We have 6 large bungalows that are all the same with 4 bunks in each, one of the bungalows is for women only. In the summer we put an extra bunk on the terrace of each bungalow making a total capacity of 60 people.
We also provide free use of beach mats and snorkels, cheap food and drink, volleyball and backgammon. Communal room with large book and music collection. Free hot showers. Internet access, coin phone, communal fridge.
Open 2 weeks before Easter until the end of October.
"Set in an olive grove, this happening hostel goes all-out with hot showers, good music and cheap alcohol, making it a raved-about backpacker oasis. After one day's stay you may hear the sirens singing and never want to leave."- Let's Go
