Awesome hostel, I recommend it.


A complete joke. I intended to spend NYE in Rijeka and made the mistake of booking a bed in this hostel, almost ONE MONTH BEFORE. Then less than two days (yes, TWO DAYS) before my arrival they send me an email saying my reservation is cancelled. No reason for that and no explanation provided either. To this day (03/01) they still haven't refunded my deposit. Thanks for ruining my New Year's Eve. AVOID THIS HOSTEL AT ALL COSTS, their poor rating is well deserved.


When i arrived at the hostel they didn't care about me, they didn't tell me wait a while...i was like a stupid waiting there. A croatian man entered after me and they started to talk to him, they gave them all the things he needed and the key of the room. Ok, at some end she cared about me... I arrived at 3 o'clock in the night, i announced it before...so the check-in was at 10, i didn't have so much time to spend in the hostel.

The walls are too thin, you can hear everything what is happening in the hostel.The only window is in front of smoking area in the hall and it might get loud. The location is right in the centre of the city at the bus station. Shame there is no breakfast in the offer.

It was my first time in Rijeka and I have choosen this hostel for price and position but now if i will come back I will choose it for Big Daddy !the guy at the reception was really funny and friendly. He said "if you need anything let me know" and then he really was meaning that! I had a wish (which was going to Rab) and there were no hostel in this period so Big Daddy spentall afternoon making calls and trying to find an accomodation, and he found me one in the house of a friend!!! Thanks B.Dad


Great location for a hostel. Four stories up though. Staff clearly did not want to be there and was only one real shower for the shared rooms (the other was more of a sink).


Pretty good place nothing special. Staff were very unenthusiastic but still nice. The fact it was four floors up wasn't great and the view is blocked by a billboard.

I was welcomed 1st by an old guy jabbing his finger at a phone number (Hello international call expense), a 15 minute wait, then a lot of tuts, but later learned that the lady was pregnant and not well, so can't hold that against her. It's above a bus station on the 4th floor of what looks like an old abandoned Ministry of Truth. There's no communal area and despite the number of bathrooms many of the taps and showers just don't work. The walls between rooms seem to be made of papier mache.




This is A very basic hostel with a small number of rooms. The hostel is on the 4th floor which is never ideal and the rooms were incredibly hot. We opened the window and this opened onto a billboard so we got no breeze. The facilities are limited with one good shower and two very very average ones. I slipped over and cut myself after showering as the floor is slippy and a bit unsafe


Inside the hostel anyone could just walk into the room. The staff was very unfriendly and not helpful. It is just a place to sleep, nothing else.


It was alright, the location is good because its directly across from the bus station and maybe 5 min walking distance from the train station. There was no kitchen/fridge, so don't buy food expecting to cook.

perfect location next to the bus shelter, easy to walk anywhere you want to go, and easy to find. also great for moving onto the next place - lots of people said that Rijeka is just a place to stop briefly in, but we sort of liked it! City has a good atmosphere.


for the price is ok but the staff wasn t friendly at all ! Not a lot fo information of the city and not even a smile when arriving or speaking to you. There is only 2 showers for many rooms of 13 people.


Lame!! Don't stay here. There are way better places
