#2 of 771 Specialty lodging in Zadar
We are the only established hostel in Zadar owned and run by fellow travelers. Set in a charming part of town only 15 minutes walk along the water front to the old city gates. 'Why should I stay outside the old town? 'Well, quite simply, we offer what the other hostels do not. We have a decked garden complete with sun loungers, splash pool, bar, and a sun terrace. As well as this we have a private courtyard, movie projector and guest computers. We are a clean, comfortable and secure hostel, located in the safe neighborhood of Arbanasi. Ideally situated minutes away from the main bus station, and the scenic Kolovare promenade; nothing Zadar has to offer is out of arm's reach. Note to self to all our globetrotters, avid and novice travelers that like to leave our beloved reviews - We are not in the Old Town! We are able to offer you all the facilities noted above for that very reason. We do have a bar that can get a little exciting and noisy at times, however, this is well regulated by us. We are definitely a hostel that offers fun and excitement as well as relaxation and calm. Come see for yourselves......

They must get a lot of visiotrs that complain it's not in the old town, but don't worry the old town is about a 10-15 minute walk either down backroads or along the coast, which is much prettier. This is a really fun and friendly hostel in Zadar in a (I feel) great location.

I found a great hostel in Zadar, super friendly, warm and really comfortable. Nice little bar and lounge where I met a few other stragglers travelling in March. Awesome city map which i think is their own as it had all their personal recommendations on it. All in all I would

This was a really nice hostel. We stayed in two different private rooms as we extended our stay. ‘This’ (name of the room) room was better as it wasn’t over the bar so was quieter. Really enjoyed the hostel it’s self with free tea and coffee in the morning and a little pool.
