We stayed in this hostel for a couple of nights, 3 girls in a 4 bed dorm with ensuite shower and toilet. Pleasantly surprised with this hostel after reading some of the reviews! The hostel is a 10 minute walk from the bus station, set near the water. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. Room was okay! Not 5*... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of my holiday in Croatia and it compared unfavourably to other places I stayed during my trip. The room I stayed in was the music themed one, decorated with vintage album covers but the beds and floor was made from vast amounts of chipboard which looked a bit cheap.... More

We stayed for one week and used the hostel more as a cheap hotel-eating out and not using communal facilities. It was good for these purposes but for actual backpackers there is not much in the way of communal space. The location is great and the prices very reasonable. Our room ("Movie Room") was a good size private en suite... More

Hello, We stayed one week in the hostel. The mission from the hostel is 'it is not about sleeping, but about dreaming'. I can't agree. We had a room at the third floor. On the site you see that every room has a different theme. Our was plastic candeleer. It was dull, but ok. The room had a good bed... More

We booked a double room with ensuite for 48 Euros in June. We had a hire car, and although the hostel is on the road fronting the port, this road was closed for contruction work on our visit, and because of pedestrian and one way streets it was difficult to find the hostel. Parking is a problem during the daytime... More

Newly remodeled with air conditioning, in room shower/bathroom, complimentary internet, fridge, sounds like a hotel doesn't it? The proprietors are very helpful. It was Sunday night, we needed a rental car for the next morning and they must have looked up and called a dozen numbers for us. There were comments like this from other patrons who had signed the...
