“Great for FUN”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2011

really fun hostel with lots of young travellers - mainly aussies! - all up for a good night out.
the fan didnt provide much air conditioning, but the rooms were clean and nice enough, good showers although they did run out of hot water most days if you were last to shower.
the cooking areas a bit simple and when busy isnt really enough for everyone to use but it was still a great place to meet lots of people so not really a problem. definitely a good place to stay if your up for meeting people and going out!!

We promised when we left that we would translate our enjoyment there into a goodreview so here it is- the atmosphere of the place was great, there was a simple outdoor cooking area, two chill out sections (very comfortable bean bags and hammock one side) the rooms were clean and standard dorms. there were lockers. Diane was fantastic and made everyone welcome and included all people (if they wanted) ingoing out which was particuarly good for small groups and lone travellers. We named the dog Doris whilst we were there- so go say hi!
A brilliant hostel, and hvar- a beautiful place!

The Green Lizard is the best hostel we have stayed at in our month of travelling. The ladies who run the hostel are super friendly and helpful, and may even go out on the town with you! There is an outdoor kitchen that makes you feel that going out for food would be utterly stupid, since the kitchen, with its terrace, overlooks the harbour, and there are great sunsets. Socializing, meeting other travellers, and partying are all very easy and fun to do here! GREAT hostel!!

this is one of the best hostels I stayed in. The owner Vanessa is so friendly. The rooms are clean. You can cook and eat outside, different cozy places to sit and enjoy the sea view. It's also a good place to meet other travellers. You really feel welcome here, I think the best place to stay if you visit Hvar.

I'm really surprised at some of the negative comments as we LOVED our 2 night stay here. Understandably we came in a quite time but we had amazing weather and the owner of the hotel spent a long time with us, telling us about the island, where to go, recommendations of local restaurants (Dalmatina's = best meal in Croatia). She was clearly busy setting up the hostel for summer and you could tell she was working to the bone to make it a great place.
The room was quiet and clean and while it is a little way to walk back to the hostel, it was agreat way to walk off all the great seafood and icecream!
A great little place and I would recommend it to anyone!

We loved our stay here - my friend and i stayed in the private room with own bathroom, the view was amazing, the hostel was great for meeting people. If you have the front rooms they can get a bit noisy but we didnt mind. Always seemed to be someone keen for a beer and chat. Would definitely recommend.
