From its location on the main square, what you have here is a perfect place for your time in pula. Restaurants abound within 5 mins walk along with local bakeries and supermarkets for snacks and drinks. Rooms were spotless air conditioned with comfortable beds and plenty of toiletries should you be travelling light. 10 mins walk away from the arena too so local to all your needs. We will be back.

Great central location. The place is clean, bright and simple and good value for money. Front desk staff are friendly and efficient. The facilities are a bit basic but everything works. The place can be a bit noisy particularly as the rooms are small and sound insulation poor. There’s always someone coming in very late after a few beers and shouting. Everyone can hear it!

My partner and I stumbled upon this place while on a road trip around Croatia. Building is located centre of town. Reception area is more hotel looking. Tony explained we had book an apartment and wasn’t in located building. It was a 2 min walk and tony helped with the guidance of the car to correct parking space. Room spotless and good facilities. Great location. Thanks from Eileen and Nicky Newcastle.

I’m not sure why they chose to call this a hostel as it was more upscale than we anticipated and felt like a boutique hotel. Located in a historic building, that has been renovated, its very tastefully designed to maximize its small space. They even installed an elevator. We stayed in two attic rooms. They were quiet and small but were fine for one person or a couple for a few days as the location of this hotel couldn’t be more perfect - literally located right beside the Arch of the Sergii and a 5 min walk to the Colosseum. The photos posted with this review show the hotel’s yellow building and one of the interior design elements preserved during the renovation. Such character. Room 303 was much smaller than Room 305. The only challenge we encountered was parking. The GPS took us to the main street located in front of the hotel, but that is not where parking is offered nor where you can drop off luggage. If you are driving by car and have a lot of luggage, make sure you communicate in advance with the hotel so they can send you VERY clear instructions as to where to bring the car to unload your luggage. It’s a tad complicated. Easier if you arrive by taxi. I would stay here again! Location was superb for exploring Pula!

This place exceeded our expectation for a last minute weekend booking. We had a tiny clean room for two on the second floor. I was pleasantly surprised by how central the location was. we walked everywhere in Pula. The hostel staff was extremely helpful in letting us keep our rental bikes inside for a night and booking us taxi back to the airport.
