The hostel gets all you need: a splendid view from any type of room, a green terrasse for everybody that looks like a little jungle, a lovely and helpful staff, a small breakfast in a bag they bring quietly next to your bed in the morning, a locker under your bed to put all your stuff safe, it's modern, welcoming...

The Hostel is what you might expect. Many younger travelers coming and going on the cheap. The 1st floor caters to this. The 2nd floor has rooms designed for 4-6 people, a little more family friendly. the 3rd floor has private rooms for couples. I reserved very early on (6+ months in advance) and requested "a room with a view".... More

My friend booked online because the hostel seemed to have a futuristic decoration by somehow and when we got there thats is precisely how it felt. The hostel decoration is super cool but also clean. Affordable prices that even includes a small breakfast for shared rooms and in suite bathroom. It is super well located, right at the center of... More

Great locationclose to everything to visit. Super friendly staff. Nice rooms. Breakfast a bit high in cholesterol, bacon was very fat, but the rest was fine. Nice coffee machine. Parking easy to find in the streets, 4 kn an hour, free from 2200 to 0800. Thank you!!

Right in the centre with great views from the room. Because of the nature of the space available they have made great conceptual design decisions with interesting post modern geometric designs. Small but comprehensive buffet breakfast. All the staff we met were friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

The staff is nice, helpful and smiley and friendly. We were like at home. Very nice hostel, really pretty but a breakfast a bit poor. To recommend because of the staff, the location and the views form the best rooms of the 3rd floor.

Our suite at Boutique Hostel Forum was everything we needed for a one night stay in Zadar. Right across the bell tower, close to a delicious ice cream parlor, walking distance from the Sea Organ and people's square...and yet, when we entered the glass covered room with its fabulous view, we felt like we were the only two people in...

I booked a private room for one night and absolutely loved the location. It's right in the center of old town, allowing you to walk everywhere. The private room came with a standard breakfast. The views from the windows are amazing, but note that they don't allow for privacy - the rooms face an outdoor cafe and unless you draw... More

Well located, you can find everything (including the Sea Organ) in less than 10 min. walking (bars, restaurants, supermarket...) and still have peace to sleep. The people in the reception are kind and helpful. The kitchen is small but well equipped. Everything is clean and you can have a privacy on your bed, with your own light and socket.

My experience was even bettter than my expectatives, the hostel is located in the middle of the centre with an amazing views opposite the old romans ruins. The beds are really comfortable and the architecture gives you independence. Everything was clean and the recepcionists are truly nice. I would come back again!!!
