Great location and security.. Bathrooms were not at all clean and very few in relation to the number of guests.. Bar pretty cool with cheap drinks and a good atmosphere


we were just out of season (by 2 days) and the place was nearly empty and the atmosphere was lacking. staff seemed a bit tired from guests


Perfect situation, great service, kind people, clean and confortable rooms... If you wanna spent a really good time in Novalja, this is your hostel!

Make it more clear to prospective guests that it is a partyparty Hostel and correspondingly dirty and loud

Owner Comment (Hide)
sounds to me like someone forgot to do their research before booking into our "party hostel". Located in Novalja (the Croatian Ibiza) you would expect to have a few party people staying with you. during the summer months, when the clubs on Zrce beach are still open Novalja is a party town. If you want some peace and quiet you can come here after mid September when the clubs shut and the town transforms into a tranquil seaside retreat.


amazing to meet people


Staff were extremely helpful, lost wallet and two shirts, guys helped me find them and sent my shirts to me in Ireland. Reception always there to help and the bar is always open. Would recommend
