My brother and I stayed for a week in May and we were the only ones there. It was fantastic. Iva was our host, who looked after the hostel and she was lovely. She told us some great places to go and she booked a taxi for us to the airport for 150 Kuna. If we'd have done it, it would have been 300kn. The hostel is spotlessly clean and modern. All fittings are good. There was a kettle and fridge in our twin room. The window opened and it was very quiet outside, except for Saturday night, when people were out and about. The location was great, just 15 minutes walk or five minutes cycle ride down to the old town. There's a bakery a couple of minutes away where you can get a sandwich for £1. This hostel would be great for couples or friends who want to be a bit quiet. Not a party hostel, at least not in May. We liked that a lot. Thank you Iva, for making our stay so nice.

My boyfriend and I loved this place. We did not stay here for long, a couple of days maybe and then we moved to our friend's house. But the time we spent at this hostel, it was really something. First of all, I need to commend the staff for politeness and professional approach to the customers. I've never been served better in any hotel or hostel I've been, and my bf can agree on that one. The interior of the hostel and of our room was great, modern design with nice, vibrant colors. Also, the room had a decent air conditioner which is really useful on hot days in June.

I stayed several days here, With the exception of the first couple nights, I had a dorm room to myself. The location was good for me, just a few minutes to the Most Bridge and entrance to the Old City, I didn't use the kitchen. With the exception of the last day, the maid changed the sheets and towels daily, good showers, wifi in the room. On the days that it is hot, there is good A/C here. Both the ladies at the front were very nice and helpful if you had questions. I didn't book any tours from here. I did take a few recommendations of places of interest and to eat.

They say it is not only the product, but the people which make hospitality special. This is a no brainer, but in this case this is more than true! The owner of the hotel is a super nice lady who is talkative and super helpful! She really makes your stay feel amazing at her cute hostel. Not to mention that she keeps the place super clean. We wouldn't have stayed there if it wasn't our last minute laziness that we haven't booked anything when we have arrived to Zadar. It was pure luck that we stayed at her place! We didn't regret it at all! Even though it is inside a russian style apartment house the place feels like home, with comfortable bed and great showers. A real gem in Zadar. Also well located to have everything in reach!

We stayed 2 nights at this beautiful hostel. Everything about it is charming: it's not large, very clean, the staff is really friendly. We had a private room in June that was super cheap. There are shared facilities but we never had to queue. The recptionist even wiped the shower dry after every fuest even though they were so clean anyway. Thank you so much. Please their check-in times or let them know beforehand if you're arriving outside of these times.
