Other than some bad music playing at the bar, no complaints. Helpful staff, clean, safe, cool setting, and area. The lounge is a cool place to hang out, with a small book-exchange library, chess, cards, and a bar. There's also computers which you can use anytime the office is open, usually 9am-9pm

The facilities here will blow your mind considering that this is a youth hostel. Always clean bathrooms, reliable wifi, comfortable lounge, fully equipped kitchen, clean beds... really anything you could think of they have made sure they have it! On top of this the staff were truly amazing. They helped us book taxis, out-trips, and restaurant reservations. Considering there was... More

Our stay as a group of 19 in the Drunken Monkey was nothing short of exceptional. Upon arrival the reception was hugely accommodating in terms of sorting out all of our rooms, and then she proceeded to tell us all of the best places in the town before booking us lunch and dinner tables at two fantastic restaurants, while they...

This was easily the best hostel I have ever been to. Everyone was super nice, the bathrooms are gorgeous and it was just an overall awesome experience. Definitely recommend. If you stay in Zadar then this is pretty much the only hostel you should consider.

The environment while staying here was incredibly relaxed. Super chilled vibe. Only a ten minute walk into the old town of Zadar or the cliffs for a bit of diving and swimming . The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend staying at this place to anybody who plans to visit Zadar.

The Drunken Monkey is easily one of the most unique hostels I'd stayed at while backpacking through Croatia. The atmosphere was amazing and the staff were great! They went above and beyond to make the stay enjoyable. The only thing you have to worry about is staying longer that you expected to because you like it so much. Do not... More

I have stayed there twice and it was really handy to be right next to the bus station. Only 20 min walk into town. Easy to meet people there if you are solo and the staff are really friendly and helpful.
