Stayed here for 3 nights and didn't make it the first night as had to take a sleeper bus, so they left us the keys and code so we could come in really early in the morning which was so helpful! Great location 2 minutes from the beach, lovely staff, awesome atmosphere with a really nice bar and best showers... More

Perfect combination of Resort & Hostel. Between The Drunken Monkey & The Lazy Monkey you can have whatever experience you want!! Both are very social & cross pollination between hostels is frequent. If you want quiet hours at night, stay at the Lazy Monkey but you can always come party & socialize with your new hostel mates at the Drunken's... More

This place is so great, as a solo traveller I was welcomed with open arms from the moment I arrived - the staff are absolutely on point. They made my 3 nights in Zadar some of the most memorable travelling times I've experienced so far. I have nothing but positive reviews to give and would go back in a heart... More

Stayed here again this year for 2 nights(separate ends of the trip) and it is without a doubt the best place in Croatia to stay. At the end of the trip I was expecting to just go back and relax but sitting up on the upper terrace talking to more travellers and it turned out to be the best night.... More

This hostel was amazing and a perfect way to start our trip in Croatia. We arrived late in the evening and were right away welcomed to the hostel and invited out to an outdoor club. It was a fantastic evening with an amazing atmosphere between all the guests and the staff. The hostel was clean and tidy and very affordable.... More

What an absolute perfect way to start our trip! We were welcomed into the hostel at 10:30 pm and invited for a night out within minutes. The staff and management were friendly amd helpful and made us feel right at home. Holly was incredible in teaching us a few needed words and the local drink. I wouldn't want to start... More

What a fantastic welcome to zadar. We got shown around the hostel and within 10 minutes were invited on a night out to a open air bar in old town. The staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough for us. Including booking us into another hostel because theirs was full. The hostel was incredibly clean and tidy and we would... More

Fun hostel esp if you're travelling alone. Good location with small (pebble) beach fronts to relax, which wasn't crowded at all & 20 mins walk to the old town. Informative staff, always able to advise on where to go/what to see.

The Drunken Monkey was a great place to stay in Zadar and I had a blast. The people are great and everyone makes an effort to talk to the other guests to make them feel welcome. Met loads of really cool people whilst drinking in the bar and went out every night for dinner with different people from the hostel.... More

This hostel is well located in a nice quiet neighborhood a short walk along the water from the more touristed part of Zadar. The hostel has very friendly welcoming staff. Probably best for younger travelers or people looking to meet up with other backpackers. The hostel has its own bar and is quite social. It's also located close to the... More
