“THE place to stay, Luka is great!”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

We received a very friendly welcome from Luka who gave us lots of useful information on the best things to see and do in Hvar. Throughout our stay Luka was about to ensure everything was ok with our stay and he even took us up to Hvar castle when he saw us about to leave to make the long climb up towards it! The room was excellent and very clean, great value for money. The facilities at the hostel are excellent with a number of kitchens to choose to cook in as well as an outdoor one. Its a very sociable hostel to stay in with lots of communal areas. I would defiantly stay here again if going back to Hvar.

Summer 2012 : We traveled in a group of 16 students, and Luka's Lodge accommodated us all. Not only was Hvar gorgeous, but Luka's Lodge was comfortable, homey, and close to the beach!! We had a great view from our room. And unlike most of the places we stayed on our Euro trip, Luka's even had AIR CONDITIONING! It was amazing! One night someone probably used a hair dryer and out electricity went out for a while, but after someone reported the problem the problem was fixed very soon after! I was impressed! Luka is a WONDERFUL host - he goes out of his way to make you feel welcome. He cooked dinner for all 16 of us! He also makes his own olive oil and homemade wine :) I never wanted to leave!

The people are what makes Luka's Lodge. Not that the place itself isn't great, it's just that the staff and the atmosphere are that good. My two friends and I stayed for five nights, one of which was spent in a simple but clean and perfectly adequate 6bed dorm, the other four in a small apartment that the owner, Luka, found for us just a stone's throw away - we slept in our flat (for a more than reasonable price), but hung out in the common areas at Luka's, where we cooked and met other cool backpackers.
An example of the place's awesomeness: the first night we were there, it was my birthday. Not only did the staff take notice, they got me a cake and had everyone singing Happy Birthday, and later on I was given a litre of cocktail, for free. That does not happen without a genuine desire to make your guests happy - which they did, of course. We were very sad to leave, and we'll be sure to come back the next time we're around.

Full marks to the owner Luka!! Me and my gf arrived on Hvar island and he picked us up in his car (for free) and checked us in. he gave us a detailed overview of the island and what to do and see. we stayed in a private double room (2 single beds joined together) with a mini kitchen (fridge,cutlery, crockery and hot plates to cook on), a private bathroom, shared balcony and AC!!! everything worked perfectly NO complaints.great value for money!!! plus decent security.
if we needed any help Luka or his colleagues were more than willing to help.

On another day Luka took us on a tour of hvar seeing the castle, lavender fields and great sites of Hvar - for a price much better than any tourist agency were offering.
We stayed 5 nights and we highly recommend this hostel/lodge!!!

we thank Luka for making our stay in Hvar unforgettable!!! hvala

Room Tip: get the private rooms - more expensive but worth it!!!

My fiancee and I stayed with Luka for 4 nights at the end of May 2012 and at this price, I don't know how a stay on Hvar can be bettered.
The room was basic (it's a hostel not a hotel) but we had all the facilities we could need - kitchen area (personal & communal), private en-suite bathroom, balcony, free wi-fi, etc.
Luka and his team are what make this place so good though. He attracts a really great crowd, all willing to mix and share travelling experiences. He cooked a massive BBQ one night for all the guests (at v. reasonable cost) that included as many sardines as we could eat, and his home-made bread, olive oil and wine. Nights out were also organized including free shots at Kiva Bar. Luka even personally organised transport to Jelsa so that we could get the early catamaran to Bol.
I cannot recommend (both Hvar, and) Luka's Lodge highly enough!

My boyfriend and I took the ferry out to Hvar Island from Split just for one night. We took the ferry that arrived in Stari Grad, so the directions that Luka's Lodge got a little confusing - if you try to find it from where the Hvar city ferry arrives, it's pretty straight forward. So we got lost. I called Luka on his cell and he sent someone to meet us - she was there in 10 minutes and walked us back to Luka's Lodge. The room was comfortable with a view of the water and a short walk from downtown Hvar. Luka was a gem and invited us to have coffee and cookies with him for breakfast before we left on Sunday. He told us about his town and gave us lavender oil to take home as a souvenir. We had a great time visiting before we had to take off to catch the ferry back to Split. Although our time at Luka's Lodge was brief, I would definitely recommend staying here!
