Our room was very clean, comfortable and we had a great view! The whole staff that works in the Old Town Hostel is very friendly and helpful. Especially the barkeeper Ruza and the receptionist Ana are the best! The hostel bar is also an excellent opportunity to get to know people from other countries as well as locals. In general... More

After missing breakfast my first 2 morning here (due to over sleeping), I now make it a point to set my alarm. The food is so delicious and fresh. Don't leave without trying it! Now, the hostel itself....is extremely clean and the staff is one of a kind. They are great with suggestions and eager to help in anyway. It's... More

If you're coming from the airport, you can stay on that bus and get off at the Old Town stop as the hostel is situated right in the middle of Old Town. Unfortunately, the directions given on the hostel's website aren't the best. I just followed the map in my guide book and I found the hostel without any problem.... More

Perfect location to visit the old town. Reasonable walking distance to the Water organ and all the ancient monuments. Possibility to cook in the kitchen which is very nice when you travel on a budget. The rooms are quite small and noisy at night but there was nothing we couldn't live with. Good value for money

This hostel is right in the middle of the main town of Zadar. It is tucked right in the middle of different stores. It is up the stairs and feels like a home. They have single- gender sleeping arrangements and an awesome lobby area with wifi and a computer you can use. We heard live music from down the street... More

I only stayed for one night. The staff were very friendly, great location but plugs were lacking in the room and the internet was slow. You have to keep an eye out when looking for the place in the Old Town, but it is a great location. They let you store your luggage as well. The best part of this... More

a cosy hostel with a sweet little kitchen. I was in off season and the only thing I would have on the negative side: probably to few toilets for tourist season. now, in october, all was fine and enough for all to share. the hostel is very clean, the rooms light and comfortable. and the location is unbeatable for sure.

Stayed here with a friend from the 14th - 21st September. We arrived quite late so you have to keep an eye out when looking for the place, you can easily walk past it! We arrived and the receptionist was really friendly, told us about the good bars and cheap drinks and where the points of interest were. We had... More

I really enjoyed my stay here, mainly down to the friendliness of the staff and the fantastic location in the centre of Zadar Old Town. The views from the top floor rooms are well worth the hike up the stairs :D (but yes, note that if you cant be bothered to climb lots of stairs then this may not be... More

Stayed here for two nights with my friend in the girls dorm. The hostel is in the middle of old town which is de nicest part of Zadar. The girls who work there are very kind and you can ask them anything if you need something! The dorm and the showers are nice and clean!
