This is a top class spot, located right in the centre of Old Town, i was in a 4 man dorm and it felt safe, secluded and top class comfort with full privacy. Overall cleanliness was A1. But above all, the staff were the best. I am usually a hotel gal but am so glad i got to experience this... More

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.

I initially stayed in a 2bed room on 2nd floor however it was noisy as it is next to the kitchen and was woken up at 5am. I then moved to a 4 bed dorm and much preferred it as it was much quieter. Security starts at 12pm so there is a no noise policy after. The hostel was always... More

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.

A group of four mixed- -age females, we stayed at this hotel for one night and wished we could stay longer! Excellent service, clean and well-designed rooms, lovely bathrooms and prime location. I can't recommend this hostel enough! Don't waste your money on hotels when in Zadar- stay here!

first of all, the location of this hostel is just breathtaking - in the middle of old town, you can almost touch the thousand-year-old church of St. Donatus. apart from the perfect location, the rooms are unique - we spent two nights in Forum Lux, and laying down in the bed with a night view can be an experience on...

Haven't stayed in a hostel for a long time, but decided to stay here for the following reasons - (a) cool ambience from the picture (b) convenient location (c) just a one night stay (d) reasonable price It turns out that the design is cool, but I found the blue and white not so appealing. I prefer a warmer tone.... More

I went to Zadar with soem colleagues for work and we stayed at the Boutique Hostel Forum. I got the "black mirror room" which is an exploration on itself.

Dear Guest, thank you very much for writing us such a lovely review. We can agree with the part where you mentioned black mirrored room as an exploration on itself, just wish you had a better view. Next time, while booking, just make a note that you want a sea view, and we'll make sure you get one! We hope... More

The room set-up is really innovative - I loved the pull-down shades on the bunks to block light. the location is also absolutely incredible, and I would definitely recommend this hostel above any of the others in Zadar for precisely that reason. However, perhaps because the bunks are so separate (or perhaps because it is still so early in the... More

Dear Guest, thank you for taking the time to review our hostel in such precise way. We are more than happy to hear you liked our bunk beds and the rest of hostel. As for the atmosphere in hostel, we could probably ascribe it to the off season when there is not so many guests in hostel. Anyway, hope you... More
