Fantastic value, great view over the Forum from my bed, super clean, great breakfast and helpful staff. This is an ideal location for the bus station and all the sites of zadar. Travelling solo I was also able to meet other travellers but had the luxury of a room to myself

This is would be in my top 5 hostels I have stayed in, anywhere in the world. From the friendly staff to the majestic rooms, this hostel has it all. The prices are quite reasonable but they represent the experience you get. We stayed here for two nights in April and ended up coming back to Zadar for another night,... More

Lovely hostel - more like a motel/hotel. Very safe,clean and easy to get to on bus from airport - We had a double room on 2nd floor which had a fantastic view ! (although just a shame that because the windows go right down to the floor its a bit too exposing to sit in the room with the blind... More

Location can't get better than this place for Zadar. Ivan who manages reception was very friendly and helpful. The reason I didn't give this place 5star is because WiFi speed on second floor is bit ancient and it takes ages for a page to load so forget about any YouTube. Breakfast was great!

Stayed here during a brief visit to Zadar. Great location in the old town near the roman forum. Very helpful staff. Room (stayed in a 4 person dorm) was very reasonably priced. Also very bright and clean. Linen, towel and small breakfast all included. The 24 hour reception is fantastic too as my flight was delayed so did not arrive... More

Hostel Forum is a pretty cool place to be honest. With clean white walls and contemporary feel, it loses any sense of being a cheap hostel filled with teens and gains its place among the best stays in Zadar. The rooms have great rates, though if you can stretch to the best room, even for one night, then it is... More

The thing I loved the most on this hostel was the view, the room has a big window looking to the main square: the forum, St Donatos Church and the sea. They had a great social area to Skype and watch movies, clean bathrooms and good prices. Moreover, its design is very modern and attractive.

I have stayed in Boutique Hostel forum many times, mainly business trips. Staff was always on top of their game, and Martina as a host always willing to chat and to help with anything. Stayed in the rooms on the top floor, with amazing view on the sea and islands across the channel. In the morning you can't be waked... More

Excellent place, and highly recommended. Staff very friendly. Clean and tidy. Easy to find. I stayed for two nights during New Years party, had a great tome on Zadar's Peninsula, especially on Varos area. Only one small remark, independent to hostel, there are no any good restaurants on peninsula.

Stayed there for 2 nights in 4 persons mixed room. The hostel looks very nice and it's superbly designed. The location is probably the best in town. But in rooms there's a little space so if you have a lots of luggage you might have the problem. On my bill there was the night+breakfast but I didn't get any althought... More

Dear Guest, thank you for taking your time to write us a review. We are glad you liked design and location :) As for the breakfast, you don't need to have luck, you just need to tell us that your roomate took it. As the breakfast bag looks attractive, it is not a rare case that a traveler takes two... More
