Everything was perfect. Rooms very clean, big kitchen, great atmosphere and there is a bar right in the hostel. It's very complete and you get good value of it.

YOU HAVE TO STAY HERE! The location of BYH is amazing, it's right beside the bus stop to Zrce beach, super markets, a small beach and restaurants. The BYH staff are amazing, so friendly, funny and incredibly helpful! We felt a part of their family immediately. Not to mention the facilities are amazing, the 24hour bar, a huge kitchen and wifi and the place is always spotless! Excellent value for money! We didn't want to leave! We loved every minute of our stay! love Aoife and Rachel frm Ireland!

Party place for party people. Cool but be aware that your neighbors will probably noisily come back at 7AM from one of the club...

Good location but very expensive for an hostel

Atmosphere is great and the staff are very helpful/friendly. Prime location. Rooms don't have AC and the beds are rather creaky.

Fantastic friendly staff, 24hour bar, amazing view and a perfect location. Only negative is that the rooms are incredibly (sometimes unbearably) hot. But that's just the weather and there is the option to rent a fan so I'd highly recommend that. Overall I'd definitely stay here again because I had an amazing week, the staff are brilliant and you couldn't get a more central place to stay

Amazing atmosphere. It was our second year in a row staying here. Only downside was creaky doors and bunkbeds waking everyone up, and the showers weren't great.

great kitchen, location was amazing - literally 2 minute walk from the beach and rooms had an excellent view of the sea! The atmosphere was lovely, so easy to meet people and garden area was nice! Had to hold the shower head but thats the only thing i can think of as a bad thing!

Considerate staff in a hostel that should please most backpackers. Close to supermarket, beach and part of the night life scene, it has a lot going for it.

Awesome kitchen, great hangout spot. Perfect location, just a few steps to the beach :) Friendly staff, too. And many of the rooms have balconies with a view of the sea, which is kickin'.

This is a great hostel, and the location is perfect, literally a stones throw from the ocean. Has lots of common space, and a kitchen, and a bar. The beds were comfy and the room had a balcony overlooking the ocean! I'd stay here again for sure

Big Yellow House was the best hostel I have visited throughout any of my visits to Europe!! You have got it absolutely bang on with everything. The atmosphere when we first arrived was perfect and we felt instantly at home. You generally find with hostels that you know if it's for you within the first 5 minutes of arrival and our first impressions were completely right. The staff that run this place are like a family (apart from that weird American Dan?! ;) ha love you
