Nice hostel. Good area. Rooms are comfortable and bathrooms are clean. Breakfast is average - toast and fruit (only watermelon). Free yoga which is awesome. The yoga instructor is great. Only downfall was we booked before we got there, we asked for an air conditioned room but the lady at reception said that's not possible. Our room fans weren't working... More

The only hostel on the island could do with some competition! It has a great vibe and a good communal area but the beds are uncomfortable and the rooms hot! . Showers and toilets were clean and it has a rad bar on the beach that's never open hAha. Nice late checkout at midday and basic free breakfast . Isla... More

With a central hang out space as well as adjacent live music stage, games area and outdoor beach bar, Pocna brings lots of travellers together to common areas creating a great vibe. Our private room was lovely, with windows and fans however the dorms looked less inviting. Water refills were a bit pricey and the staff ranged from not very... More

I spent 3 nights at POCNA and i was pleasantly surprised by the ambiance. Everybody is friendly and everybody talks to each other. The lobby is the center of the action and you don't want to miss the parties at night on the beach. They offer a food service at a very affordable price and they serve alcool in the... More

Basically this is one of the coolest hostels i have ever stayed at. It's reasonable priced, including breakfast, has a divecenter, huge outdoor area and is just a few steps to the beach. You meet people from everywhere and many hippies are here. Only thing is, i had the dorm (nr.14) right where the noise is as they have loud... More

Perfect location, has its own beach club which invites the whole island, so a good atmosphere! Live music every evening and a lovely handcrafted jewellery stall in the entrance! Very near to the North Beach, which in my opinion is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! My dorm room was ridiculously hot, only 3 wall fans and... More

While the hostel itself is really cool and the location is great, we were pretty disappointed with our stay. More than 5 different people recommended pocna to us so we were expecting big things how ever we're let down from the beginning. The front staff were not the friendliest and either were the kitchen staff. Refilling water is $$$$$$ as... More

The hostel is in a great location, close to the beach and town. Very noisy every night so be prepared and do not stay here if you want to go to bed early. The dorms are also very hot (we were there in the middle of summer). Overall though we had a great stay as we knew the above before... More

I returned to this hostel with a friend after being impressed when I first visited in 2007. As backpackers my friend and I were in a 6 x bed shared dorm which had a private en-suite. The rooms are fairly basic without AC and the shower water pressure wasn't great. Breakfast is basic but free, tea// coffee, toast etc. The... More

First arrived - smooth check in. Got to our room and it was fairly basic I guessed you just got what you paid for - three bed private with fans and no bathroom. After speaking with other guests we found out there were other private rooms with air con, private bathrooms and even one with a fridge for the same... More
