This is definitely a party hostel, but if you're in Hvar, then this is likely what you're here for :) There are even cheeky signs in the bathrooms asking people not to have sex in the showers! But it's very clean and air conditioned, with a large outdoor terrace and bar, as well as kitchen facilities. They also do a... More

The directions made the hostel easy to find however the walk is about 10-15 mins uphill from the harbour. On arrival we were given complimentary water melon which was really refreshing. Our room was clean and had lockers and good air conditioning and the bathroom was modern yet only 1 between 12. However there were additional facilities downstairs outside the... More

Probably one of the best hostels I've stayed in so far! Very clean, great location, and pretty good staff. The female staff seemed a little bit intimidating and not very approachable for help, but the male staff were awesome! They were really friendly to everyone and made everyone feel comfortable with one another. Nick and Brian definitely encouraged everyone to... More

Only one set of electrical outlets for a room of then people...which meant that phones were often dead or not able to be charged during the night (if there was an... More

We read amazing reviews and this hostel also won a TripAdvisor award so we had high expectations. When we first arrived we got watermelon and a glass of water which was great. However, we were disappointed with the service after that (a lot of the staff were really nice but some of the other staff were not very friendly and... More
