What a beautiful place Zadar is, made all the more accessible and unique by the extremely friendly staff at the Drunken Monkey. They definitely go above and beyond the usual requirements, sharing local tips and tricks that come with knowing the area so well. Would definitely come back again. Awesome place!

I’ve travelled around the world, stayed in so many hostels and this is definitely one of the best. The first thing that strikes you about the place is the staff. They are so incredibly friendly and helpful… and happy to be working there. There is an amazing outdoors area as well; Open-pit BBQ, Plunge Pool, hammock, picnic table and deckchairs.... More

I have stayed at Drunken Monkey on two occasions while travelling through Croatia. On both occasions, I was blown away at the cleanliness, the hospitality and the general atmosphere of the place. Kyle and Chris helped me rent cars, pointed me in the right direction to good eats and cool spots, in Zadar and elsewhere. No other hostel I have... More

We stayed here and we're instantly taken back with how friendly the staff are. We checked into our rooms which are a great size in comparison to most other hostel that we've stayed at on our travels and when on a pub crawl for the evening. Everything here was spot on! Organized and friendly staff, clean, fun and a great... More

I have never in my life been so cared for and looked after. The service is incredible. The staff couldn't do enough for me! It touched me how much compassion and love these wonderful people had to give. I fell in love with every single one of them and when I leave tomorrow I don't know what I'm going to... More

Stayed here for a little under a week, had an absolute blast. Great facilities, staff were super friendly and helpful. Situated in a great spot between the old town and a cool little area on a little headland with a bar, swimming, beach volleyball, etc. Would highly recommend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are the only established hostel in Zadar owned and run by fellow travelers. Set in a charming part of town only 15 minutes walk along the water front to the old city gates. 'Why should I stay outside the old town? 'Well, quite simply, we offer what the other hostels do not. We have a decked garden complete with sun loungers, splash pool, bar, and a sun terrace. As well as this we have a private courtyard, movie projector and guest computers. We are a clean, comfortable and secure hostel, located in the safe neighborhood of Arbanasi. Ideally situated minutes away from the main bus station, and the scenic Kolovare promenade; nothing Zadar has to offer is out of arm's reach. Note to self to all our globetrotters, avid and novice travelers that like to leave our beloved reviews - We are not in the Old Town! We are able to offer you all the facilities noted above for that very reason. We do have a bar that can get a little exciting and noisy at times, however, this is well regulated by us. We are definitely a hostel that offers fun and excitement as well as relaxation and calm. Come see for yourselves...... ... more   less
