As it is a youth hostel, you can't expect it to be a 4-star hotel. Still it's a great place to go just for sleeping and having fun. Zadar is a very nice city. It's very cosy at night and during the day the beach is just great to relax and cooldown. The food is so so, but you can't... More

So far from the town but close to the beach. It is hot in summer and you have to pay for fan or air condition. On the wall, there are quite a lot of mosquitoes dead mark. The breakfast is free and ok. Since it is so close to the sea, your wet clothes may be not dry after a... More

Hostel was in a very good location right beside the beach! Staff were helpful, and welcoming on arrival! The rooms were OK, and you can rent air fans at reception! Only one plug socket tho, which is not really ideal, especially in a 4 man room. WiFi is fairly non existent, works OK at bar, but no where else!

Nice hostel, quite new and well maintained. Great value for money and extremely good location (beach is on a 3 minute walk), restaurants and bars close by. A bit further away from city center. The only thing missing is AC. Food in the restaurant is not the best, but there are other options close by (would rather eat outside than... More

One of the most satisfying hostel - if not the most - visited in our trip around Croatia, but not very well spotted in the city, this is its only flaw. Breakfast included, not usual in the country hostels, and clean, equipped rooms that makes a comfortable experience. Don't forguet the hostel card to get a discount!!!!

I stayed here for two nights after a conference in Zagreb almost five years ago. It was an organized tour so we pretty much had the entire hostel booked for ourselves. May was too cold to go in the water, but Zadar and some of the nearby island were definitely worth seeing. I remember that the hostel was a long... More

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...

Sorry for not noticing your review earlier. We do appreciate your honesty and apologize for insufficient cleanness of the showers. You will be glad to hear we have bit improved our breakfast and now it includes cereals, often ham, cheese, boiled eggs or even mini hot-dogs and fruit. Due to sometimes catering even 250 guests we must keep our breakfast... More

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)....

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
