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

The staff is quite friendly, but there was a huge, really noise group of teenagers during 4 nights, and they were way too loud to catch some sleep (doors/music/yelling).. They could have gotten us a room in the building of the individuals, in stead of in between the teenagers (since there was a room available!). The food is not worth... More

I apologize for the noise, the night guard should have done better job. Room assignment is tricky because not all of the rooms are of the same type, facilities or price More

Beautifully located by the sea. Clean and neat for being a hostel but really not priceworthy since private options just one block away is cheaper than this hostel and offers more. This is a good spot to stay if you're a large group looking for a cheap place where you can stay together and party. The breakfast was really nothing... More

Stayed at this hostel as part of a Contiki tour and wasn't really phased as it was only for one night. But we had a great time! The hostel is located right on a marina, so directly across the road are moored boats and the water. The view was great. There is a bar on site which provided cheap drinks... More

Many guests praise our food although, by all means, we can not say we offer a gourmet's food. The public transportation is beyond our influence. More
