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.

Just back from a week at Hostel Elena in Zadar and couldn't fault it in any way, a small hostel in a fantastic location in the centre of the old town. Check-in was easy and efficient with Tania who was pleasant, helpful and friendly - she spoke fluent English, gave me a map of the city, offered to organise a... More

A great hostel in the old town of Zadar. Perfectly located; close to the boulevard and sea organ. The dorms were big, clean, nicely decorated and with a modern bathroom. The lockers are big enough to store your backpack and hand luggage. Nice kitchen and common room, but when we were there people didn't use it that much, so it... More

This hostel is the middle of the Old Town of Zadar which I really enjoyed! The location is perfect! Also it is perfectly clean and upstairs there's a kitchen with a common room where you feel so comfortable and you feel as if you were at home in someone's living room :) The staff is very helpful and tells you...

This was my first hostel so I didn't know what to expect in comparison with hotels where I've been before. I was generally familiar with the concepts of hostel but never liked the idea of sharing the room with strangers. This time I went with my friend so we took room with 2 beds so there was no need for... More

We spent 4 nights in this hostel and we were very satisfied. The hostel is perfectly located and not too expensive. In addition, the staff is really firendly and helpful. The only negative aspect is that there is no terrace.
