I had two short stays at this hotel in July and August 2021. The staff (Anamaria and Maja) was amazingly responsive, helpful and friendly, accommodating my late check in and arranging an early morning airport transfer to the Pula airport for me. The hotel is in a very central part of Pula, close to the coliseum and arch and everything is very walkable. Rooms are reasonably priced, simple and clean. Everything worked very well (air condition, shower, tv) and I would certainly stay here again during a short trip to Pula!

This hostel is very clean and comfortable, and incredibly quiet too. It is the perfect place to get proper rest. The receptionists are very attentive - they even allowed me to check in much earlier than normal (10 am). My bedroom was quite small, but that was because it was the only one available so early and I took it willingly and did not regret it. Everything is very functional. It is only a pity that they don't serve any meals there (not even breakfast).

The hotel is in the center of town, close to the most popular visiting sites in town. Staff was really nice. They helped with instructions to park a car nearby and even gave us extended period for parking. Thank you Nicole! The room was very clean and nice. We'll return.

This hostel is located in a fantastic area of Pula; it's right in the middle of town and easy walking distance to all the key sights to see are within a few blocks. There are also multiple places to eat or get a drink nearby.
There was live music and entertainment on the plaza right outside both nights we stayed there, which added to the fun of the location.

The rooms are small, but serve their purpose. It's not necessarily easy to get close to the entrance, however, if you have a lot of luggage, as the street that ends right by the front door is restricted to those with parking passes. The clerks told us the no parking rules there are strictly enforced.

The only reason I scored this as average was because it wasn't clear when we booked the room that you need to get your parking reserved in advance if you want your car to be close. We did not do that, so we had a half mile walk to the public park where we could leave the car for free.

Let’s get the bad stuff out of the way first. Driving into town confused google GPS. It sent us around town in circles, down blocked streets and the wrong way on one way roads. After a long struggle and the hotel’s help, we got settled and the car into their lot-not close by although they claim it is. Now the good: Our room was large, with a “powder room” as well as a full bath. It had a view of the square. Once you overcome the car issues, the location is perfect, an easy stroll to restaurants, shopping and sights. Others have noted small rooms; we must have had one of their best. There is no room coffee service, breakfast or room safe but there are numerous shops selling pastries and such in the area so, if you have an immersion coil, you can make do. The staff was friendly and helpful.

The location of Joyce is simply amazing. The room is very clean and the building itself is beautiful. The staff are super professional and friendly. Marina who was communicating with me via booking’s app, was super attentive, always responded promptly and Gad the answer for everything. Highly recommend this place and I’m definitely staying here again when I’m back to Pula

Excellent location right in the heart of the old city. Clean and comfortable accomodation, if a little basic. Friendly, helpful staff.
Can be a little noisy at night due to local restaurants and bars, however, they are also very convenient.

Fantastic location, literally wiew to the gate.
We rented 2 small bedrooms with bathroom, which were new and clean. Good, sound proof windows. Elevator available. Decent breakfast at discount right across the street, best coffee in town. Highly recommended.

In a three night stay, things started promisingly. the room was very small and facing onto the main square, but it was perfectly serviceable. The windows are not effective at masking noise from the square but this is to be expected. However the final night was a horrendous experience. The aircon failed to work and in a room with a tiny window (301) it was impossible to get any air through. in an initial attempt to flag this concern, the member of staff on the afternoon simply said 'it will start in 15 minutes, the system has overheated as lots of people are trying to use aircon'. further questioning indicated no other rooms were suffering this way. my request for a fan was reluctantly looked into, on discussion of potentially changing room, the member if staff said all rooms were fully booked. when I explianed that booking.com showed 3 rooms still available he said 'these were not the type of room we had booked'. there was no indication that despite the poor circumstances the hostel would be willing to look into solving the issue. the aircon did begin to work just before leaving for dinner (90 rather than 15 minutes later) return at 11.30pm, it was once again not working and this problem persisted for the entire night. the night porter was unable to assist and we were left with a hot, humid room with no aircon. not ideal and leaving me as I write this at 5.25am, having had less than an hours sleep with a 6am get up for a ferry. Deeply disappointing and such a shame, from check in until final evening it had been a perfectly reasonable stay, let down by a problem with aircon, but much more fundamentally some appalling customer service from the man on duty on the afternoon and evening of 22nd August 2017
