Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for one night in August and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Great staff and absolutely perfect location for flying visit! It's only a stroll from the iconic sea organ, there are plenty of shops and restaurants on the doorstep! There is a restaurant called 2ribavra we ate there in the evening, it was one... More

Easily one of if not the second best hostel experience I've ever had! My check in was managed by a super Lovely, informative and professional man whom I think was Marco?! He was great and I watched him assist other guests too with enthusiasm and genuine warmth. I stayed in a 4 bed mixed dorm as this was all that... More

location is very good, hotel and rooms are kept very clean, rooms with nice and hip design but rather small, friendly staff, i think the rooms de luxe on the top floor ( unfortunately it was full booked) are worth the extra money for the view, breakfast itself is very good but the breakfastroom is to small and lacks character

The hostel in the center of the old town, is not very expensive and is very clean and fresh. The staff were very nice and is proper for younger travellers. First pick in Zadar for sure, the location is excelente near all the bars and restaurantes, 5min from the sea organ

We stayed here for the first few nights of our trip to Croatia and we liked it so much we booked it again when we returned to Zadar. The location is excellent, with some rooms looking out onto the forum. Breakfast was nice with a good selection and the staff are really friendly and welcoming! We will be back again!

This is probably the best hostel I have stayed in, the rooms are clean with private blinds and we had a toilet and shower in the room. Lovely see views, the location is as perfect as you will get. Probably a 5 minute walk along the sea to the Sea Organ and Sun Salutation. Really friendly staff too! Breakfast delivery... More

We stayed in a few hostels throughout our time in Croatia and this was by far the best. So clean and modern, with bunk beds with blinds so you could close and cocoon yourself inside. Lots of storage space in drawers that can only be unlocked with your electronic key! Bathroom and shower in the room too which was handy.... More

We stayed as a group of 3 friend towards the end of June, and out of over 7 hostels we stayed in throughout the trip (dotted around Croatia and Slovenia) this was one of our favourites. The location was spot on, rooms were clean, modern and had great views. Staff were friendly, common room has a pool table, projector, etc.... More

Stayed in the 2-bed dorm, which is a cheaper alternative to the 2-person bedroom. The room was clean and functional, although it can be difficult to climb up and down the top bunk bed. Staff was helpful. Quick breakfast to go in the morning was much appreciated.
