Dropped in on my way down to Split to visit a brother on his travels. Asked someone that looked like a seasoned traveler that was walking towards the bus station where a good hostel was in Zadar. You know the kind, smaller pack with sleeping pad, intense tan and at least ten festival bands on one wrist. The Wild Fig... More

I came to this hostel after a romantic rendezvous gone very wrong in Split, in need of beers, beach, and good company—definitely found all three! The rooms are clean, an expansive common room and outdoor area makes it easy to get to know other travelers, the beach is a ten minute walk away, and an on-property bar ensures lots of... More

Hey! It's a hostel with a cat AND free wifi. What more do you need? Our dorm was nice and clean and the staff is really helpfull, which is nice. The room didn't have any aircondition, though, so that kinda sucked. Other than that I can't complain; big outside area, nice kitchen, clean restrooms and a cat. My stay was... More

We had an awesome time in Wild Fig hostel. A great bar at the entry where you can enjoy a drink or two from their great selection of rakija. The staff was very friendly, especially Pierre, who made our stay terrific! Big up to him! The rooms were clean. If you stay in Zadar, go to the Wild Fig hostel

The Wild Fig provided us with everything we wanted from a hostel. From the outside it doesn't look like much, but it just has so much character! The staff all get involved and host pub crawls and BBQs for those visitors. They also provided us with information on what to do in Zadar and facilitated a tour to Krka National... More

Felt at home immediately, even fell asleep on a lazy afternoon in the communal area, so inviting and homey is this place. Very friendly staff, good service and nice people to meet. Great communal areas. Very conveniently close to the busstation. They provide good service, especially the curry-night I loved, with homecooked Indian curry! Very convenient to book tours, the...

We stayed at the Wild Fig for four nights toward the end of our holiday and I have to say it well and truly stood out from the crowd! This beautiful, cosy, comfortable piece of heaven is an absolute must. From walking through the gates we knew we'd love it just from the outside. With it's own fruit trees ripe... More

Very close to a bus terminal and some beaches are in walking distances. Means you can jump in the sea once dropping your heavy baggage soon after arriving at Zadar. Comfy stay along with friendly staff and travelers is promised in a big common area if you are open and ready to speak out. No need to be shy. Just... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set in a spacious converted Croatian building in the charming suburb of Arbanasi, our hostel has traditional yet clean and modern features. The owners, two friends, Sat and Ness, from the UK and OZ who met traveling offer a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. We are only 10 minutes' walk from the famous beaches, bars and cafes of Kolovare and a 20 minute stroll from the Old Town of Zadar and its maze of fascinating streets and buildings. Our rooms are clean, spacious and are kitted with comfortable mattresses. The ground floor has four large dorms (4,8,6,10 beds) with high ceilings - our private and twin double rooms are located upstairs with separate facilities and two of our private rooms have terraces. Our hostel has a beautiful spacious garden where you can relax and unwind and a large terrace with hammocks and lounge chairs and views of the velibit mountains. Our hostel has a licensed bar serving fresh coffee, local beers, smoothies, fresh juices and local wine. We have regular BBQs, quiz nights, games nights, and curry nights. We also have a large and fully equipped guest kitchen with a local supermarket just 2 minutes' walk away. Our hostel features a comfortable and spacious lounge area, providing the perfect place to sip a drink, listen to music and meet people from around the world. Upstairs we have a peaceful sun terrace with views of the mountains, a lovely place to bring a book and relax. Our guests are welcome to use our free Wi-fi internet.Whilst we are not located in the Old Town, you can still have fun in our hostel bar or we can arrange a taxi ride into town costing only a few euros. We want to make this the place in Zadar to relax, chill out and experience the simplicity of the Croatian lifestyle. Our guests have described our hostel as 'romantic, intimate, charming, inviting and peaceful - yet a fun place to be'. So whether you're stopping over on your way to the Dalmatian archipelago of islands or looking for a place to kick back and unwind for a few days, The Wild Fig Hostel is a home away from home. Do get in touch with us if you have any specific requirements. Thank you, Sat and Ness :) ... more   less
