Only stayed here for a day, however it was a great experience. Very neat, clean and comfortable and excellent value for money if you're looking to stay in town centre. It's situated in a great location and comes with a series of private and dorm rooms which makes it a great stop over.

The best location for stay in Zadar, in a very center of a old town. Friendly service, clean rooms, breakfast. Near all attractions of Zadar. Staff may organize transportation for you or book an excursion from a large choice. definitely place to recommend for your stay.

Easy to locate - Bus #2 takes you from its terminal at Autobusni Kolodvor to its other terminal outside the old city gate just 200 meters from the hotel. It is located on the main street (Siroka Ulica) of the old city, across from St Donatus church. Can't miss it although I did because the hotel sign was so small.... More

I was very positively surprised with the modern look of this hostel. Actually, it's more like a b&b than a hostel with very funky rooms with private toilets and bathrooms. In addition, the location speaks for itself, we were looking directly to to Forum from our bed :) Don't miss the breakfast, it was great!

The room was excellent, clean in perfect shape. Reception desk always on your disposal, 24/7, and breakfast will hold you on your feet during the day... What more do you need? :) Really a place to visit, the only problem is the parking but keep in mind that you will be in the center of the Old town!

I am an elderly experienced world traveler, picky but not overly so, who does much research on accommodations before I travel, and am therefore usually pleased with where I end up. Clean, quiet, comfortable, convenient, friendly are my criteria, but I am a big fan of “olde worlde charme”. This is a boutique hotel and a hostel. I stayed here... More

We decided to book a duo room for 2. It was the right price and the right size. It came with a breakfast to go. The only downfall with this room is the ladder to the top bunk. It was hard to climb out of because the the shape of the handles and it was right against the wall. The... More
