4 friends and I recently stayed here and it was amazing. We were lucky enough to have one of the double rooms and one of the apartments and they were lovely. I could have easily been convinced that I was staying in a hotel. There was a great atmosphere with speak coming and going travelling all over Croatia, from all... More

It's impossible not to want to come back to this hostel. The staff do everything to make sure your stay is enjoyable and comfortable. They assist with every aspect of your stay, from recommending restaurants, to order pizza deliveries for you and organising boat hire. Rooms are cleaned daily to a great standard, including making sure all your clothes are... More

Literally from the second we arrived we were greeted with a warm welcome. The staff is so accomodating ie free sangria, free burger night, facilitating nightlife outings for the entire hostel. About a ten min walk into town but its great for the legs. Unlike other hostels, this one is cleaned every day. My sheets are crisp and bleached, no... More

We chose Villa Marija from these trip advisor reviews. The price was more than what we would have paid for an airbnb private room but we felt like a bit of socialisation, so booked a 4 bed dorm (i ended up selecting 6 bed dorm by accident and upon arrival, the 4 bed dorm was full). First 2 nights we... More

Dear Dean,

 Thank you for your feedback regarding your last year’s visit. I was genuinely sorry to read you had bad experience during your stay with us.
 This is the type of review I always find difficult to understand why the reviewer has taken time to write the comments and share it globally, but did not bring the concerns to... More

I do a lot of travelling and have stayed in 20 or more hostels, but this is one of the very best. Where to start?? First, the only downside: they used to offer a free pickup from the port on arrival, but they don't any more. And it's a good ten-fifteen minute walk, uphill and up stairs for about 90%... More

Never written a tripadviser review before, but this hostel was so good it would be rude not to. I've also been meaning to do this since our trip last June, and have only just got round to it 6months later, so I can't remember exact details, however... Marija came and picked us up from the ferry and drove us up... More

Unreal hostel... I only stayed for 2 nights in Hvar, but it was definitely the best part during my Euro trip! Everyone there had so much fun! With their activities, it's just impossible not to have amazing time. From pub crawls (every night at 10:30PM because of noise restriction), boat trips (with so much cheap alcohol), happy hours at terrace... More
