We came in this hostel 2 years ago, we paid the same price than today but there's no more kitchen, no more washing machine or even lockers in the room or a cupboard,a shelf or nighstand. Only thing in the room was a bed 'n a chair, nothing to hang or put our clothes. Several lights were not working. The... More

Staff are amazing, can pay to have breakfast or dinner (depends on who makes it but if Rose - amazing!). Rooms are nice and clean, location is perfect, wifi works adequately. Not too expensive given when we visited (high summer). All in all, perfect place to stay! Great atmosphere and met many other travellers.

My partner and I had just checked out and were about to leave the hostel for the day after leaving our bags. Because we are Irish and therefore incredibly prone to sunburn we stood at a table in what we thought was the common area for 5 minutes to apply sunscreen. We were just talking about how much we liked... More

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
