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 surrounded by the green of our gardens for relaxation.
In the evening most travellers gather for a drink (or two) on the hostel’s patio to chill out, before starting the usual restaurant and bar hopping!!!
For increased safety we have installed a 24 hour CCTV system in the entrance and common room areas of the hostel.
Also we are one of the few places in Greece that offers free WiFi internet for all guests.
The warm and friendly atmosphere will make your stay at Rethymno Youth Hostel a memorable one.
The hostel enjoys easy access to both the bus station for inter-island travel and 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, Falasarna, Elafonisi, and the various historical and archaeological sites around.
