I have stayed at Villa Skansi for 7 years in a row now and I love it so much! Julia and Matko are such lovely hosts and take very good care of their guests - Matko sometimes makes homemade wine which is delicious and they have a great bbq! All the staff in general are very friendly and helpful. The... More

I highly recommend Villa Skanski, it's a fantastic place to stay while partying it up in Hvar. The owner, Julia is so beautiful, inside and out, and provides a very well run, clean place to stay. I had so much fun while in Hvar, made so many new friends that begins by gathering for drinks on the terrace then heading... More

Great hostel with super communal areas. The atmosphere is really sociable and there is a bar crawl every night. Watch out with bookings as they get full even when you are there. not their fault though. would go back for sure.

My husband and I stayed in an apartment at villa Skansi. Even though this is a youth hostel (we are in our 60's), we had an apartment with a kitchenette and private bath. There is no age limit when renting the apartments like there is for the dorm areas. The apartments are in a separate building, so noise was never... More

Best atmosphere I have experienced in a hostel so far! There are a couple of shared areas like the big terrace, the big shared kitchen and the garden. Many guests relax and hang out together in these areas and I have met a lot of people here. At night this hostel organizes activities like games and a pub crawl every... More

So much fun. Awesome staff, awesome people, good rooms. If you're looking for a good time, look no further. The pub crawl is nightly and is a great way to meet the people you will be bunking with. The overall experience felt very community orientated.

Had a very nasty encounter with one of the staff. On my last morning in the hostel, I was spoken to very rudely by one of the staff members. Check-out was at 10am and it was 10.30am and I had my bags on top of the bed and was just about to leave, when one of the staff of the... More

I have stayed in many hostels but this hostel really blew me away. I ended my backpacking trip in Hvar in Villa Skansi and planned to only stay five days but ended up extending! On arrival I was given a complimentary water melon and was greeted by the friendliest staff, who showed me around and gave me really good advice... More

Great hostel if you are with a couple of friends! Hvar is known to be a party island and the hostel has a very good location! Rooms are clean with a locker and air conditioning. I shared the bathroom but everything was clean! Great staff, very helpful.

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
