I had a night here before joining up with yacht week in august and it was a great time. It has a prime location right in the heart of the old town near the water and boardwalk. There is a cool courtyard to hang out and have beers in and it is walking distance to everything you want to do.... More

Although it is 'designer' and has double en-suite rooms it is a hostel through and through. The rooms are basic with no 'soft' furnishings. The toughest thing is the noise. With nothing to absorb it every step and voice echoes around the place. Then for added irritation the night watch-person seems to like blasting out music throughout the night downstairs... More

My wife and I stayed here on a recent trip to Croatia. It's allegedly been billed as the second best hostel in the world. I've sytayed in a lot of hostels in my time and this one wouldn't get anywhere near the top 20. It is very modern and has a nice bar on the ground floor. The place has... More

Booked a private double room here at short notice. Very bright yellow and white hotel in a great location handy to to Riva and palace. As a single female I felt very safe walking to and from here.The room was ok, clean and good Wi Fi reception. However, the stairs up to the rooms from the restaurant/ bar area are... More

Used the electronically coded locker in our room to store £1000 (cash for myself and 2 friends) plus an iPhone whilst we went out at night. When we opened the locker in the morning the money and phone were gone. This discovery was distressing in itself, and made worse by the staff who were unhelpful to the point of rude.... More

Go somewhere else This hotel is desperately trying to be super cool, but it misses the main point of any sort of accommodation: it is there for you to SLEEP in. I stayed in a dorm with friends. Rooms are off an open corridor, meaning that whatever floor you are on, there is only one thin door between you and... More

We had two rooms, normal and one of the more expensive. The rooms were clean and are nice designed. The location is perfect. While the whole appareance of the hostel has its own experience, we found it is too expensive for what we got. Breakfast was horrible, the more expensive room was a joke. Toilet and shower are combined so... More

Firstly let me say that when I went up to my room, I went straight back down to reception and said that I wanted to cancel my reservation. I have NEVER before hated a room on holiday. But this was not a room, it was a box. Me and my partner barely managed to fit our suitcases in it. We... More

We booked an 8 night stay at Goli and Bosi in their Economy Double room at the end of August and paid aroung £800 for the stay. The location is very good, you are a minutes’ walk away from the Riva and 10 minutes from the Bus Station and Harbour but that’s about all the positive points it has. When... More

We found this hostel at two in the morning and they were one of the only ones who could take us in. Very cool and chilled out, excellent breakfast and fast wifi. We got lockers included with our room and the beds were much nice than any we had had through the Greek islands. Can't really think of anything bad... More
