Great Hostel! Really chill atmosphere, nice common area and kitchen facilities. Location was awesome just a few minutes walk from the palace.
One of the best hostel that I stayed in my trip around Croatia, staff very cool. They gave totally support for my question about the city.
I have stayed in loads of hostels throughout Europe and this is one of the best I have ever stayed in. The staff are incredible! Made me feel like I was coming to visit old friends , went out of their way to help and make sure I had an awesome time. I couldn't recommend it enough, it is everything a hostel should be.

This hostel was great. Small, so you got the chance to know people, with a good kitchen and common area. It's a short walk from the palace, good beaches, and the bus station. Rooms had good A/C and laundry is available for a fee. There are nice balconies to enjoy the view of the sea and drying lines to hang your towels and clothes. Overall, it was very comfortable. The only downside is that you have to climb a lot of stairs, so please keep that in mind before booking!
Thank you for welcoming me like one of your family, I had an awesome stay at Backpackers Fairytale! Antea, Anett, and Josip, you were all wonderful, you're running a great hostel. Already missing the Croatian hospitality and sunshine back home in Scotland. x
Friendly staff. Good location for the old town. Only downside was the number of showers and the quality of them really.
Staff is amazing! Helped out with any hiccups and the facilities are great too.
The hostel is well located, although it is a little bit difficult to find it. The atmosphere is fantastic, people there are outgoing and friendly. The staff also is amazing, they try to help you as much as they can. I would recommend it!
The hostel is 5 floors up with no lifts, hence it is a trouble for those carrying heavy backpacks or luggages. It is about 10 minutes walk away from city center but mainly without shelter, so you will be sweating for quite a lot. Wifi is pretty decent and there is this living lounge where everyone gathers and chill. Toilets, especially the showering part, is quite tight though.
Great place, felt so welcomed by all the guys in the hostel and their friends
Such a great hostel, helpful staff and the cleanest place I've stayed in for years! Well worth walking up all those steps, thanks for a great experience

I had so much luggage when I arrived and there was a fleet of stairs that I had to go up. However, when I arrived I saw the most handsome Croatian man whose name is the one and only Josip! That made me forget about the atrocious stairs. Anett is lovely as well! She shared some of her amazing peso pasta with me when I was sick. And I can't forget Ricchie, my Scottish friend who taught me his milk and tea recipe. Basically, I have to come back because Josip owes me amazing Turkish coffee! HAHA =)
Staff were very friendly, hostel was clean and lockers were provided. Location was very good and atmosphere was nice and relaxed. Would recommend to anyone to stay here!
The staff at this hostel were really nice but the hostel overall was average. There weren't that many bathrooms so I did have to wait to shower and be warned it's the top flat with no lift to get up, so be prepared to lug your suitcase up.
Beautiful hostel in a beautiful location staffed with the best locals who are eager to share their city with you! Very conducive for meeting other travelers in a relaxed casual atmosphere. By far the best hostel we stayed in on our trip across Europe!
The location isn't great. And had to walk 9 stairs!!! There is no common room and as a solo traveler I missed that. The rooms were clean and staff was really helpful.
Location was great, staff was welcoming and helpful. Rooms were quite tight and bathroom was always busy.
Staff were awesome very helpful. there was enough space to mix with other groups while here.

Backpackers Fairytale is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. The fact that it is small and is all on one level with one shared common area allows everyone to get to know each other and creates a good homely atmosphere. I was travelling solo and never felt alone here. The staff were amazing with their humour and wealth of knowledge. I would definitely recommend this hostel.
Always a pleasure to stay at This hostel. It's very clean, has a great common room and well equipped kitchen and the staff are always very welcoming, informative and interesting to talk to. Best thing is just sitting and chilling on the balcony over looking the rooftops and beyond. Great in the morning. Awe inspiring at sunset. Oh, didn't I forget to mention the wonderful showers. I love this hostel.
