You must book the private room. The bed is so comfortable, the pillows are fluffy, and the bedding is super cozy and warm. I really liked the room so much. The view was beautiful to wake up to and just in general to look out from. The only issue that could bother some is the church bell waking up Zadar... More

Dear Guest, thank you for leaving this great review. It is nice to hear you enjoyed your beautiful view in the morning. However, we regret you didn't try the buffet breakfast and that you didn't meet our chef - we are sure you would like it. Also, the good old bell tower doesn't listen our suggestions to stop the bells... More

Stayed two nights in July 2014. If you come with a car, you cannot park in front of the hotel and there are no free places close by. Outside the old city there is a place for free. The location of the hotel is very good. By the big square, easy to access the old town. Restaurants close by. Reception... More

Amazing hostel. Great location and very easy to get to, especially with the directions we were given from the hostel prior to arrival, they ensured that we knew where to go and that we did not get ripped off when using a taxi! The rooms were very clean as were the bathrooms. The beds were comfy, if not a little... More

Although it is a bit more pricey than most hostels it is completely worth it. This hostel is unique and tthe location really couldn't be any better. Everything was really clean and they deliver free breakfasts on the to in the mornings...the only negative was the bad wifi..

Perfect hostel in the middle of the old town, lovely rooms me and my friend shared a 4 person dorm. Felt very secure and really good value for money! Would defiantly use the hostel again as we come to Croatia every year. Lady on reception was extremely helpful and funny!

This is a fab hostel right in the centre if old town. I was in a 4 man dorm but felt like I had 100% privacy thanks to the clever design of the beds in the rooms. Everyone has a secure locker to keep valuables safe and there's a gorgeous roof garden to chillax in.

The room is clean and modern. The common room is nice (although not much guests used it) The location is good which is just in the center of the old town, which you can just easily walk to different places, like see organ..church.. just a minor point: The bathroom is very small but it's ok for me.
