Incredible location, you take a step outside your room and you're in the heart of old town Zadar, and it's beautiful. I did find the mirrors a little bit bizarre, especially the one directly in front of the toilet. But nonetheless the room was beautiful, and an unbelievable view! Had all of the facilities we needed and the shower was... More

Fantastic double room and location could not be better. You could experience Zadar without even leaving the room as it overloked the roman ruins. Breakfast was decent and staff were very helpful. Highly recommend!

Felt like a 20 year old backpacker all over again. Awesome location in the heart of Zadar, very clean or airy room with private shower. Helpful staff. Close to resaurants, shopping, the waterfront and historic buildings.

Fantastic location and view onto the Forum. Even though this was a busy area during the day, I had no problems sleeping here. Not close enough to bars or clubs to affect sleep (although I think there are a couple within walking distance if that your thing). Staff helpful and nice. Great rooms which were well decorated and clean and... More

Right in the historic heart of Zadar - you have to walk there from the old city gates - this is a modern 'concept' hostel. Bright, stripey public areas give way to calm well-equipped (for a hostel) rooms with very comfortable beds, clean crisp white sheets AND A SLOPING FLOOR! I suspect that the latter is about cramming more rooms... More

It's tight in there for sure. But if your looking for something in close proximity to the centre than your in the right place. It has good long breakfast hours and good service all round. remember it's not a hotel, and if you've been to hostels around the world you'll agree it's better than the average place by far. Good...

A novel experience. Not your usual dormitory bunks by any means. Very private and very quiet. (except for other guests trundling their wheeled cases along the concrete corridors early in the morning- which sounded like a train coming through the room) Huge locking drawer to secure valuables under bed Everything very clean. Paid Euro18 in May-Didn't know breakfast was included... More

Good hostel well situated in the heart of the city. We had some difficulties to find the hostel so just aim for the big tower and its is just behind, you will find it! The staff was friendly and helpful, even the security guard at night. The design is weird, but who can juge art? The only minus is the... More

The room is realy good, with an amazing view, confortable bed and the best location you could have. The wi-fi doesn't work so fine on third floor and there is no bar service or even frigobar service, but still is a good choice.

Excellent hostel. Very welcoming and professional staff. Such a good location, many of the rooms have great views. So much to do and see right outside the doors. Very safe location, did not feel uncomfortable at all. Extremely clean rooms and a free breakfast of croissants and other pastries was waiting for us in a bag next to our bed... More
