the best thing about it was free wi-fi. It was stinky in the rooms and the shower wasn't that clean as it should have been. Oh, and the breakfast was practically rather for girls but not for boys. Just a few toasts, yogurt and Nutella. Sorry for such negative comment...

This hostel is very nice (renovated few years ago) , just 2 mins from the beach and 10 mins from center (by bus). Room are OK, very clean. Near hostel you have bars, beaches, ATM, gas station, supermarket,...everything what you need. Food is OK. Wi fi is in every room and terrace but sometimes is low connection (lots of users)....

The also charge you to become members of Hosteling International which is something they don't advertise too well. Our 4 bed dorm was in an outhouse with... More

Nice location, just in front of Borik Marina. The beach is in a walk distance, as well as supermarket, gas station and ATM machine. Staff is very kind and always available to help you. We've stayed in a private 6-bed-room with wc. Although its a 6 bed-room, they only charged us for 4. Nice!!! It has a 5-star terrace, where... More

This hostel is nice, the staff is friendly (most of them) but it's quite far from the center. The outside area is nice and big. The room are ok but not great, and the showers are not very convenient. It was full of teenagers in summer camp, so very noisy at night. The breakfast is ok but there is not... More

Although this is a budget hostel I did think there would be better facilities. As young Interrailers cheap is a necessity but here wasn't even worth that. All the staff bar two were extremely rude except the receptionist and one male bar man. The food they served was not edible which was bread something that resembles rice pudding and cereal.... More

Thank you for the feedback. We are adding cereals to breakfast now. On the down side, the bus now costs 10 HRK one way or 16 HRK double ticket. The lockers are available in refurbished parts but accommodation in that part costs a bit more :( Non-refurbished part is cheaper, and most often available for late bookings. Hoping to improve...
