The staff are simply magnificent! Wonderfully helpful and always have a smile on their face. If you want to have a great time in Hvar, you simply need to visit Villa Skansi!

A huge thanks to Andrea and Zeljana and all the wonderful team, you made our trip!

This place is amazing. just returned from a 4 night stay.

the staff are wonderfully helpful and even give you free cake and a drink when you arrive which was totally unexpected. They know tonnes of info around the island too which is great.

The daily bar crawl is awesome for getting to know fellow travellers and have a sweet time - you even get free shots! Rooms are cleaned every day to a very high standard and the common areas are cleaned twice a day.

This place is the only place to stay in Hvar, I would never consider anywhere else after going here.

Keep doing what you're doing guys!

Room Tip: Any room is good - even the larger ones!

I have stayed in many hostels throughout Europe but Skansi was by far the best. The accommodation is beautiful with perfect views of the sea. The staff are very friendly and very helpful. They are on hand to help with anything!! I extended my stay here over and over again and a 2 night booking turned into 2 weeks!! Great hostel with a great vibe whether you are a traveller or tourist!! Free pub crawl every night which includes free drinks and lots of fun. Would defo return here and fully recommend to anybody visiting Hvar :-)

Staying at this place was a great experience!

I generally do not write reviews but this one will be an exception to the case...

I was very pleased to realize that apart from the great natural landscape on Hvar, Villa Skansi impressed with room cleanliness and great staff service, but most important of it all, overall felt as if being at home and gave the feeling of really being on a vacation (I wish it was a longer one).

Definitely the place to visit once again!

This place is amazing. The vibe is great, they successfully make everyone there feel welcomed and create such a fun atmosphere. Couldn't have asked for more. The staff is so kind and accommodating and the rooms were super well kept and nice. Such a good feel to this place. We will come back!

Villa Skansi is by far the best place I have stayed. Staff are very polite, helpull and well educated. from the moment i arrived there I felt like I was part of the place, I Have been there 2 times already and the last time I did not want to leave, a friend and I, exctended our visit to HVAR from 3 days to 3 weeks. The facilities are very clean, also great view from the terrace and comftrable rooms. Atmosphere is great. I dont know how they do it, but all the people that stays in Villa Skansi are friendly, laughing meeting eachother. its a great place. I would recommend it 100 %

This is BY FAR the nicest, cleanest, friendliest hostel I have EVER been to! If you are looking for an upscale, fun place to stay I totally recommend Villa Skansi. The staff were so super lovely and helpful. They were always right there to help us with any of our needs. They do a pub crawl every night and we got free shots. I'm here right now and don't ever want to leave!
