Excellent location right near the water and the cleanest hostel I have stayed in. Good facilities with nearby markets for food supplies. Best part is the lovely man who owns the hostel and is keen to help with a smile on his face and always up for a convo!

A rocky beginning when no one seemed home mid afternoon and no one answered the number when we called. But other than that, this was a great place to stay. The staff, particularly Nina, were very friendly and helpful. We had a two bedroom private room with a shared bathroom which was clean and simple. The shower was one of... More

I stumbled upon this gem of hostel. The host is extremely helpful! He would move mountains to help out his guests. Each bed is 100 HRK regardless of the room size. The beds are insanely comfortable, bathrooms are clean. It costs 50 HRK for laundry but it's worth it. My clothes have never been so clean in my entire life... More

We stayed in this hostel for a few nights in August - September. We didn't book anything, but stumbled upon in while looking for a room. The hostel is cheaper than most other hostels and it's very clean and spacious. It's located in the old town of Zadar, a few meters from the water with it's stunning sunsets. We slept... More

I spent one night here and it was great! The mattresses are foam so one of the best nights sleep i have had in 3 weeks! The hostel is in a great location in the old town close to the water on one side and all the bars and cafes on the other. I would come back here for sure!

Great location, clean hostel with good wifi and very good price. We stayed in the 4 bed dorm which had an en suite bathroom with shower and toilet and a locker each (lock provided). Secure building 2 minutes from the sea and 5 minutes from the town centre. Owner was friendly - although maybe a little too much as he... More

Me and my friends liked this hostel very much. Helpful and friendly staff, clean and fresh rooms, lockers, kitchen & computers, laundry service, air condition and very good location. We even booked more nights then expected, because of the high standard!

My friends and I had quite a difficult time trying to find the hostel. It could have been from exhaustion, but I sincerely found people in Zadar not helpful and to be blunt - very rude. We asked many different people in clothing stores to vendors on the streets where we were to go next and 90% of them turned... More

Absolutely immaculate hostel, very friendly and incredibly helpful staff, nothing was too much to ask! Would definitely go back and stay again, we stayed for 3 days and loved it. Great kitchen, rooms are lovely, very quiet at night and great atmosphere during the day. Couldn't have asked for more!
