Great location, more than friendly staff and owners! As others have mentioned - the bar crawl is worth it, in order to meet new people! I was travelling in a group of 4 and we still took part, highly recommend checking it out! Common areas are great to relax during the day, staff are fantastic, really helpful and speak fantastic english. We had our own cooking area as we stayed in two apartments, both were clean and I would recommend them if staying for a few nights! They're more expensive but when booked through hostelworld or other sites, they are cheaper!
It feels like a big family home full of different nationalities and if you're lucky the owner might cook some of his fresh breads/pizza/brushetta! amazing! great atmosphere! stay here if only just for one night! The dorms looked great as well so I would definitely go back and stay there alone if i visit croatia again! we were only travelling around croatia, so could have paid for a big hotel but this was a million times better!
It's based in a good location, within walking distance to everything really, great food places! Definitely try Gariful restaurant (seafood) even if you don't like seafood, I had the steak and my friend had carbonara - fantastic! my other two friends had the seafood spaghetti and couldn't fault it! if you're going at night then book a table in advance! C'est la vie for cheap burgers and chips but fantastic quality and BB for great food also!
Also rent a boat and visit the islands nearby! even if you don't know how to drive one - we didn't and it was a highlight of the trip and cheap also!
