Hostel is really far away from the centre, tried to walk but gave up after 30 min and got food. I guess you really need the bus if staying here. No air con. 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...

The location of this hostel is not in walking distance to town, so you need to use taxi or public transport. I recomend taxi, because in morning buses you can meet only idiots and fools... Staff is really frendly, young, ready to help. Rooms are small, with 4-8 beds, with bathroom. It's not bad for hostel, but really nothing special.... More

The location of this place is pretty the only thing going for it, being directly across from the ocean although the bar area is quite nice. Not walking distance to town so had to get on the bus. Rooms and communal bathroom were very average. Wouldn't bother staying here aagin.

Thank you for the review; we are aware our rooms lack the charm, we'll try to improve ourselves since we can not afford a designer :( More
