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

Absolute first rate 5* hostel. As a lone traveler I spent two fantastic nights in this hostel. Couldn't get a better location in the very center of Zadar. Friendly, humorous staff that would do anything for you. Hostel was modern, clean, awesome facilities all at a very good price. Brilliant- best hostel i have stayed in.

I loved the location of the hostel, the concept of the rooms with the privacy blinds, the neat little breakfast bag, the cleanliness and friendliness of the hostel. I would definitely stay again. The story behind the colour scheme of blue and white with orange thrown in is cool.

Great town, great food, great place to stay. This is plush. Service unreal answered all my questions with a smile, giving info about Zadar and a little history lesson too. And just to rub it in how nice they were as I couldn't make breakfast as flight too early, they gave me a doggie bag, unreal. They just couldn't do... More

stayed 4 nights in private room on top floor with fabulous views of the Forum and Roman remains and as far as the sea. Room was quirky with raised bed which was reached by clambering up a carpeted "ramp" each side of the bed.

Excellent location. Very cool interior design. Good privacy for dorm beds. Clean facilities. Good shower and water is hot and good. The only thing I would pick on is the lack of a stove for dorm guests.

Excellent location right in front of the forum. It's 10 minutes away by local bus from bus station. They even send you a you tube video on how to get to the hostel. Hostel is very modern, with a cool electronic system for the door and locker. When you walk in automatically the light of your bed turns on. Rooms... More

ok, everyone loves this place apart from me! It's in a great location, and Zadar was by far my favourite place in our cycling tour from the north to the south, but the 4 bed dorms are over designed. The cubicles afford privacy, but are claustrophobic and stuffy; I nearly expired on a warm summer night. I'm sure a better... More

I've stayed in Zadar before - at the rather fancy Hotel Bastion. The Boutique Hostel Forum is in a better location, is less stuffy, it has better views from the bedroom windows (we were on the 3rd floor) and the breakfast is just as good. It's located right in the middle of all the action across the road from the... More
