Poor 2.0
Peter, owner was aggressive and vainly pressured me to claim a refund from the shop I purchased luggage from after the inadequate locker in my dormitory ripped my new case because it is has sharp fixtures. He claimed his family business would eat out of their profits to recompense me back £30 then threw me out when I refused a goodwill breakfast! He became aggressive and would've resorted to violence if another witness wasn't around. He also wouldn't address my asthmatic condition when overnight I suffered passive smoking due to atmospheric ingestion from poor ventilated room despite roommates smoking on balcony. I suffered serious respiration that required keeping the French door open but that allowed loud street noise causing complaints which Peter callously focused on. It was all about money!

Very Good 8.0
Strange name, good place
Cocoon City (never did figure out the weird name) is near the interurban bus terminal in Chania and a few blocks from the main local bus area and the main tourist area. It is really clean and well organized. Beds were comfortable (I had the 4/room option). Clean bedding provided, towel rental 4 euros. Air conditioning a bit weak. Main issue was a room above a noisy road, under normal conditions I might have had an issue with sleeping due to noise but was very tired so it was OK. Staff was very friendly although check-in for some reason rather slow.

Wonderful hostel in the heart of Chania
Modern, cozy hostel right in the center of town; only a short walk from the bus station and to Old Town. Large common space, fully equipped kitchen, and multiple showers & toilets are all spotless clean. Each bed has its own light and socket, and the owner & staffs are very friendly & helpful. This is one of the best hostels I've stayed during my 6 months trip!
