This was a cool lil place. Very very small though. The night I stayed, there was a lot of really loud drunk ppl who kept me up literally all night. the walls are very thin and you can hear literally everything that is going on in all the rooms. A lil expensive for what it was worth but the staff... More

We stayed here for a few nights in a four bed dorm. It's a nice, clean hostel with lots of common space at the outside pool area, bar & outside stairs. For me, the highlight was the owners & staff. When we checked in, we received a terrific amount of information on Zadar & recommendations on bars and places to... More

The hostel has everything to give you a good time. Although, when we got there, don't know if due to overbooking, we were assigned to the room where the staff sleeps. This meant that the room had no key and it was also intimidating to talk about the noise that was happening after quiet hours (the Hostel states that after... More

Staff were excellent. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and the general atmosphere was great. Half an hour walk from the old town, which is the only downside. Would thoroughly recommend this place though.

This hostel is the by far the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The hostel itself is located about a 20 minute walk outside of the Old Town, but honestly the walk is so easy and the hostel is so much fun... you probably won't want to leave! We had more fun at the hostel bar than we did... More

I only stayed here one night but I really enjoyed my stay. The hostel itself is really cool - there's a backyard with a pool and a sunroof which is really nice. It's very clean and very modern. The showers are really nice and hot (there's a rain shower head in one of them which is awesome). There's lockers in... More

If you need instant friends (facebook style), or good info about Zadar, this is a good spot. They put everything into the welcome + info + friendliness + cleanliness; but that comes at a price and I find 66 euros/night for a double room WITHOUT bathroom expensive (high season price). We were there in May and paid 50 euros/night ........ More

This hostel is beyond amazing. If you go to Zadar and don't stay here, you're doing it wrong. The hostel itself is an absolutely lovely place. It is incredibly clean and well maintained. There is a great bar/common area where you can meet other travelers and have some good laughs. It got pretty rowdy sometimes, but other nights it was... More

What an amazing place. We went as a group of 7. When we arrived I myself was a little anxious as I had never stayed in a hostel, the staff were great and really went out of there way to put my mind at rest :) the room and the rest of the hostel was spotless cleaner than any hotel... More

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
