I give the place an average rating because it had nice views and nice guests. Overall, had a great time, but this isn't a hostel that cares about the travelers. It cares about making money in these busy months. I understand why they can change a lot per night, but I don't know why they don't allow guests to bring... More

Stayed here one night in a 5 bed mixed dorm. Clean, centralish and cheap. Communal areas which we didn't use but looked fine. Slightly out of town but I think most cheaper hostels on Hvar are. Staff on reception were really friendly and free wifi worked well.

Stayed here for 2 nights in mid September. The hostel was quite quiet during my stay with only a few other guests but I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The dorm was fairly spacious but annoyingly if you were on the bottom bunk you couldn't sit up on your bed without bumping your... More

The staff at Green Lizard Hostel are very nice and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The hostel itself is nice; there are outside sociable areas and an outside kitchen. Our dorm was upstairs and was small with no air con so it was EXTREMELY hot. I'd say that this was the only negative part about... More

The Green Lizard is a lovely place to stay; the staff is excellent—very friendly and helpful. It’s far enough from the main square to not be too noisy, but close enough to be convenient. It’s close to several beaches, and once you know how to get there, you’ll have no problem finding it again. However, finding it that first time... More

I stayed 3 nights in August in the Green Lizard hostel. The staff is adorable and very helpful. They gave me good advices and helped me when I had to book a ferry ticket to Korcula (at this time of the year, ferries are getting full very quickly!). Also as I was in a rush the last day, I had...

This hostel is a great price and also good location! Brilliant staff and very friendly, made us all feel very welcome! Curfew is at 11pm but this did not affect us as members of the staff came with us and we had very fun nights out. I am with a group of friends travelling around Croatia and Hvar has been... More

Pleasant and helpful staff. Lovely relaxing environment. Rooms and general facilities in good clean condition. Really good place to meet new people as well. There's a curfew on drinking at the hostel at 11pm, but that's the only downside really. Really enjoyable stay.

Difficult to find a hostel in Hvar with fair price but The Green Lizard is one of them. Stayed there for one night only as there was a festival in Hvar, I couldn't book two consecutive nights. It located up the hill. So be prepared. It took around 15 to 20 mins walking from the pier. Went there a day... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and loved every minute. The rooms are clean and airy with secure space for storing valuables.
