The people who work at the green lizard are quite amazing. Tonina is a sweetheart. When I didn't come home one night because I was out with friends, she personally emailed me I make sure I was alright. They know all the guests who are there and they are super friendly and helpful. The people staying there are young, fun... More

The green lizard was a home away from home for me. This hostel's relaxed environment, along with the personable help there, made me feel like a part of the family. The whole hostel would eat and drink together before going out to on the night! Overall an amazing experience.

We stayed at the Green Lizard for about 5 nights in a private room with an ensuite bathroom. We had a balcony with a perfect post card view over the water. Staff was extremely friendly and the hostel is kept impeccably clean. There is also a good outside kitchen. The hostel is over priced and if you are only looking... More

I had more fun at the Green Lizard than any other hostel in Europe. Super friendly staff would manage the bar, and even go out with us at night. The 20 or so people that stayed there all went out together several nights and had a great group dynamic. One night we had a BBQ with about 20 of us.... More

We stayed for five nights in a private room with ensuite. It was a good room - clean with aircon. Not especially cheap but nothing is on Hvar! Great staff with great tips and cool outdoor communal areas.

This hostel is about 10 mins walk from the ferry port, really clean and the staff lovely, chatty and helpful. Situated in residential area so it's quiet, great for chilling out or dealing with hangovers on the massive cushions! The only downside is that our room had no air-con, only a fan which didn't seem to work right so it... More

Great welcome with an excellent ambiance in the hostel, which is practical. The place was calm but close to the port and perfect for our days in Hvar. Everything was clean and everybody was helpful and kind. A great experience.
