5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

Having spent the summer working in a hostel myself, Villa Skansi comes highly recommended. Exceptionally clean, smart, chic and friendly I had a fantastic couple of nights here. The staff work very hard to ensure an efficient running order, but still make time to socialise with guests. I've definitely picked up a few tips, thanks for a great stay!

I traveled with 4 other girls on a girly holiday all aged 24 and stayed in a 6 bed dorm. We had a beautiful view from our terrace and the owners were amazing. In the morning they would offer us tea and biscuits and put croissants out for all guests. The kitchen area is sizable and clean as is the rest of the hostel. There is nothing bad I can say about this hostel. In Hvar, every hostel has to be quiet after 10pm and instead of just chucking us on our way out in to Hvar town they have a bar crawl organised by Tom and Tom which is such a great idea because everyone that wants to, has a pre-drink down stairs (where they offer ice!!), meet other people from the hostel and travel on in to town where you go to various bars and get free shots! If you want a quiet holiday they will accommodate that as well with everyone leaving by 10pm and ensuring a pleasant atmosphere for all.

Exceptionally clean and really great fun. Everyone's so friendly and the two Tom's bar crawl every night was a great way to meet new people and socialise with others in the hostel. Would recommend to anybody.

I travelled with another girl and we found the hostel amazing! We stayed in a 10bed dorm which was spacious and so clean! Iv been to hvar before and was so gutted that I didn't find this gem before!

The view was amazing, the facilities even better, and the hospitality was the icing on the cake! The two welsh boys who are now hvar royalty made our trip complete! Bar crawls every night, provided information about the island and showed us to our fave island spot hula hula! They worked as a great team and you could see how much all the other guests appreciated the pair! The night life was amazing too, the toms had worked closely with the island bars to make sure we had a great night!

I would recommend this hostel to anybody wanting to visit hvar. Your missing out if you don't stay!

Where do I start? From the beginning till the bitter end I was shown an amazing time. I say shown because tom and tom literally showed us around Hvar and ensured we had a good time from day to night, to day again.

Now you are asking yourself, who are these boys? Well they work for villa skansi and from when we arrived until we reluctantly left they went above and beyond to guarantee our holiday was to be remembered forever. They helped us organise boats for amazing prices, showed us the best restaurants to eat in. I personally loved my seafood platter in lunga Mara (I think it was called this)... and at night they would take us on an EPIC bar crawl, where we indulged in some free shots, and stayed with us until the early hours. They work and party hard. They also ensure people are safe as they helped a drunken friend of ours home one night.

Villa skansi also has other delightful staff, is clean, has great WiFi and has a fantastic terrace to socialise on.

I give it my highest recommendation.

Villa Skansi was an amazing place to stay during my visit to Hvar! Great location, clean and friendly staff!! The 2 Tom's bar crawl was the highlight every evening, those welsh boys really made our holiday!! Will definitely return next summer!

What a place to end my euro trip. Hvar is amazing. And villa skansi is the best place to stay. Perfect location, great people and top hospitality.
Will definitely be back in the near future.
A week was no where near long enough.

Room Tip: Dorms are more fun
