This hostel is situated in the center of the picturesque Venetian old town of Rethymno, offering a small oasis of fun and relaxation to travellers from all over the world! It's set within peaceful surrounding streets yet close to the town's long sandy beach and exciting night-life.
Entering from the street you will find a typical Venetian building with thick stone walls and wooden floors upstairs. Downstairs there is a beautiful patio surrounted by the green of our gardens for relaxation.
If you use Rethymno hostel you'll have easy access to both the bus station for travel within the island, and the ferry port for boats to and from Piraeus.
Centrally positioned on the island of Crete, travellers can use the hostel as a base for day trips to the most attractive sites of the island like the Samaria Gorge, Lake Kournas, Preveli beach, Knossos, Falasarna, Elafonisi e. t. c. or the various historical and archeological sites around.
In the evening most travellers gather for a drink ( or two ) on the hostel's patio to chillout, before starting the usual restaurant and bar hopping!!!
Recently we developed the option of having very inexpensively priced YOGA CLASSES within the hostel grounds for our guests, from an experienced qualified Hatha Yoga Teacher!!!
For increased safety, we have installed 24 hour CCTV system in the entrance and common room areas of the hostel!
