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.
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 9.00-12.00 and 17.00-21.00. The hostel itself is 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
Most people arrive by bus. Get off at Plakias sea front and walk with the sea on your right for about 100m, turn left and go past the pharmacy. At the end of this road turn left and follow the yellow triangular signs, you will be home in less than 10 minutes.
Have a good journey.
