I spent this last summer soloing through Europe and staying at Villa Skansi was by far one of the best experiences. The staff were super helpful and accommodating and helpful, so much so that I ended up staying 3 more days then I was planning to. I met some grand people there and overall the hostel managed to expertly combine... More

I'd been travelling for close to two years by the time I arrived at Villa Skansi and I can say it's the most welcoming hostel I've ever stayed at. Upon arrival I was greeted with an ice cold glass of water (even though it's a short walk from the pier I was still sweating because of the beautiful hvar weather)... More

My friends and I came here because of all the people we'd met who said it was the best hostel in Hvar. It did not disappoint. Despite it being the end of season it was easily the busiest hostel on the island with fantastic pub crawls every night. The hostel itself is fantastic. Ocean views and comfy outdoor couches to...

Atmosphere was absolutely incredible with nightly pub crawls and all guests drinkin together on the dual balconies. Staff were so friendly and helpful and always available. We extended our stay and would gladly stay longer if it were possible. An absolutely... More

Stayed here for one night in September. I found it on hostelworld and chose it based on TA reviews (!!!) I was not disappointed! It comes exactly the way it 'says on the package'. Clean, modern and with a great vibe. Peeps who run it are extremely hospitable and bubbly and the owner (young Croatian stunning woman) goes an extra... More

The staff and owners were extremely helpful in helping us to organise activities in the run up to our trip. And, when we arrived, we found the rooms to be clean, comfortable and with lovely balconies overlooking the sea. The bathrooms were also very clean, spacious and modern. The atmosphere at the hostel is great. I think this is largely... More

My friend and me stayed in a 'Garden view apartment' in Villa Skansi for 5 nights and were extremely impressed. After a week of travelling around Croatia, it was so nice to come to a very clean, comfy room in a lovely friendly hostel. Our room actually had a lovely sea view and was set a little back from the... More

Would recommend Villa Skanski to anyone thinking of travelling to Hvar, the tom and tom bar crawl is also a must. The staff treat you as their friends and the owners are always about, very friendly vibes. I stayed in an 8 bedroom dorm and everything was always very clean and the room was also equipped with lockers for all... More
