Meteora is actually the name of a large UNESCO rock formation in central Greece. It’s home to six monasteries built on immense natural pillars and boulders – certainly worth seeing and voted as one of the most beautiful places in Greece!
Nearby to this jaw-clenching view are two great hostels:
The best hostel in Heraklion, So Young Hostel, is centrally located and offers a stylish, boutique design with eco-friendly materials.
Mixed dorm rooms are cosy with 6-8 beds. Female solo travellers can opt for a ladies only room, with either 4 or 6 beds. Each bed has a curtain and sturdy ladder. Couples also have the option of a private double with ensuite.
By far the best place to chill is on the rooftop terrace. Sun, laze and meet people here – easy.
There is a free bus to Amoudara beach from here. Great nightlife and shops are surrounding the hostel, so getting around is easy.
Besides the listed accommodation, we also put together the best hostels in the world; the 5 Star Hostels.
We stayed in a former winery in Santorini, in a former jail-now 5 Star Hostel and many more. And we share all of these unique budget accommodations with you.
