Heraklion Youth Hostel
Heraklio Youth Hostel is located right in the heart of the town yet in a nice and quiet neighborhood. A family-run business offering basic and cheap accommodation all year long. The main tourist sights and means of transport are only few minutes away together with numerous choices of entertainment.
The hostel is in a two storey neo-classical stone building, that makes it cool in summer and warm in winter, and has sunny fresh rooms (balcony or windows). There are males and females dormitory rooms. Our guests can enjoy all day long a hot shower, hire linen and towels, leave their luggage and have free wi-fi access. Safety box, adaptors, city brochures and maps are also available. A spacious outdoor terrace, where you can sit and relax, is also in your disposal.
A friendly, multi-lingual staff is always here to help you explore the town, arrange excursions around the island and make your stay easier and far more interesting. Being in a very central, still quiet position allows you to follow the beat of the town and not miss a thing as everything is within a short -walking usually- distance.
