Let’s have a look around and properly appreciate their philosophy of hospitality. Cocoon City Hostel is a 5 star hostel in Chania, Crete because…
1. Up-cycled Eco-friendly Materials
When you first glance at Cocoon City Hostel, you’ll notice the modern, minimalist design.
But that in no way means drab, boring spaces that cause constant yawning. Oh no!
The beds should certainly catch your eye – they have been custom made with serious comfort in mind. Instead of cheap bunkbeds from Ikea that rattle, you’ll have your very own sturdy space.
Many of the materials, including those to make the beds, are eco-friendly and built to last. This means less waste in the long run.
In the social spaces most of the furnishings are made from wood. And because the rooms are kept minimalistic, you’ll find no unnecessary waste on pointless plastic ‘space fillers’.
As for supporting a sustainable local economy? All of the staff are locals themselves.
Good work, Cocoon team.
2. Vivid Colours and Shapes
Now for the design, possibly the best part about Cocoon City Hostel!
Vivid colours and shapes adorn the hostel walls to add a bit of warmth and spice to the otherwise modern tone.
According to the interior designer,
“The bright colours symbolise and encourage the coexistence of people from various backgrounds, in the same area.”
So yes, you can expect to meet people from all walks of life here as everyone is welcome!
The dorms are kept small, with just 4-6 beds. We think this is the reason they haven’t included privacy curtains. In a smaller room it’s likely everyone will get talking and show a high level of respect.
Having said that, the dorms do also have their own balcony with super cool hanging chairs. So you don’t necessarily need to leave your room to meet people.
Even the fully-fitted kitchen has a few seats so that conversation can continue over a hot stove.
5. Local staff that care
As we already mentioned, this is a family run hostel and all of the staff are local.
It’s always great to see staff mentioned in consistently high feedback. Use of the words “amazing”, “helpful” and “sparkling clean” show that they not only make impressive effort with people, but with the hostel condition too.
Because the care of travellers and the hostel go hand in hand!
Test their local knowledge and don’t be afraid to ask anything.
If you fancy a yummy breakfast for an extra 5 EUR, just let them know.
They’re at hand from 11am to 7pm, so make sure you let them know beforehand if you’re going to be arriving outside of these hours.
All right dear readers, there you have it. Cocoon City Hostel is breathtaking and certainly the number one answer to where to stay in Crete.
It includes all of the major destinations and a very handy map to make your planning easier.
So make sure you give it a thorough read and save precious time!
