Reviewed October 31, 2011

Even though it is listed as one of the botique hostels in E. Europe, I didn't find it worthy of all the high ratings. No kitchen to speak of. Rooms were only so-so. Very noisy as it was facing the main road. I've certainly stayed in nicer ones. And if you are off season or shoulder season, just rent a...

We also have rooms facing the bay and one of them has a private balcony, where you can sit and relax while youre enjoying the view. Thanks...

Been here two nights in August 2009. It is a very neat hostel, with very friendly staff. A hostel in the true sense of it without the, sometimes, nasty and dirty surprises. Nevertheless, you shall not forget that it is a hostel in one of the most classy islands of Croatia. Bottom line, it's worth the while if you want...

Diane was fantastic and made...

The Green Lizard is the best hostel we have stayed at in our month of travelling. The ladies who run the hostel are super friendly and helpful, and may even go out on the town with you! There is an outdoor kitchen that makes you feel that going out for food would be utterly stupid, since the kitchen, with its...

this is one of the best hostels I stayed in. The owner Vanessa is so friendly. The rooms are clean. You can cook and eat outside, different cozy places to sit and enjoy the sea view. It's also a good place to meet other travellers. You really feel welcome here, I think the best place to stay if you visit...

I'm really surprised at some of the negative comments as we LOVED our 2 night stay here. Understandably we came in a quite time but we had amazing weather and the owner of the hotel spent a long time with us, telling us about the island, where to go, recommendations of local restaurants (Dalmatina's = best meal in Croatia). She...

We loved our stay here - my friend and i stayed in the private room with own bathroom, the view was amazing, the hostel was great for meeting people. If you have the front rooms they can get a bit noisy but we didnt mind. Always seemed to be someone keen for a beer and chat. Would definitely recommend.

This was one of the hostel highlights of my summer holiday. The hostel had a really good atmosphere and the outdoor areas were nice for relaxing and having beers with the other hostellers. The hammocks in the courtyard were great and I spent most of my days reading my book in one of them! The lady running the place was...
