Youth Hostel Plakias
Youth Hostel Plakias - probably the most chilled out hostel in the world.
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
The reception will be open from 8:30 am to 12 noon and from 6 pm until about 8 pm.
If you arrive in the afternoon, please leave your luggage in the reception and enjoy the afternoon. Come back after 6 pm for check-in. If you arrive later than 8 pm please let us know. We will leave a message at the reception with the information where to find your bed.
Payment in the hostel is only possible in cash - but there are three ATM's in town available
