Great location, clean hostel with good wifi and very good price. We stayed in the 4 bed dorm which had an en suite bathroom with shower and toilet and a locker each (lock provided). Secure building 2 minutes from the sea and 5 minutes from the town centre. Owner was friendly - although maybe a little too much as he... More

Me and my friends liked this hostel very much. Helpful and friendly staff, clean and fresh rooms, lockers, kitchen & computers, laundry service, air condition and very good location. We even booked more nights then expected, because of the high standard!

My friends and I had quite a difficult time trying to find the hostel. It could have been from exhaustion, but I sincerely found people in Zadar not helpful and to be blunt - very rude. We asked many different people in clothing stores to vendors on the streets where we were to go next and 90% of them turned... More

I recently stayed in hostel elena for two nights whilst travelling through Croatia. The hostel is lovely, it is clean and the location is great. Unfortunately, whilst I was there my whole backpack got stolen from the reception area where we had left it to be put into our new room (we booked the two nights separately so were in... More

Absolutely immaculate hostel, very friendly and incredibly helpful staff, nothing was too much to ask! Would definitely go back and stay again, we stayed for 3 days and loved it. Great kitchen, rooms are lovely, very quiet at night and great atmosphere during the day. Couldn't have asked for more!

I have just returned from Hostel Elena with 3 friends. It is in a brilliant location in the old town, right by all the local cheap eateries and bars. It is 30 seconds from the sea where a lot of people sunbathe along the city walls during the day with small steps to jump into the crystal clear turquoise waters.... More

I arrived really tired and didn't really know what to expect, but it impressed me: Location is perfect, just in the old town and a few minutes walk to go anywhere, staff is helpful and nice and everything looks like brand new and properly clean. I would definitely recommend it!

I spent about a week in and around Zadar and would definitely recommend this hostel. The staff are great, like pretty much everyone I came across in Croatia they're friendly and helpful and good for a chat. Rooms were clean with air-con (amazing) and lights/plug sockets for each bed in the dorm. Theres a nice kitchen space at the top... More

Very helpful hostel host when checking in, letting us know of all the very very cheap bars close by. Modern and reasonably new furnishings in bedroom and bathroom, which are both very clean. 5 min walk from the sea organ (tourist attraction) and 20 min walk to the bus station, but very excellent location within the old town!

This is a nice hostel managed by a cool staff :) It is located in the wonderfull city center of Zadar, next to some bars, and next to the seaside! I had a great time there, even if only for 2 nights. If i go back to Zadar, I will book there.
