Even though it was off season, this place had a few people staying here. Dink was very helpful upon arrival and advised me on the best places to visit. He loans cycles out for a good price too which was useful. I didn't make use of the kitchen as I only stayed there one night and decided to eat out. Bathrooms very clean and the beds are comfy. You get a wall socket by each bed and a lockable drawer for your valuables.

Dink and Papa Dink are amazing at what they do. Was here during the off season but still had a wonderful time because of the good natured hospitality I was given by these two. You get an amazing view of the water, especially during the sunset from the balconies. The beds were so comfy and the hostel was extremely clean. But it was truly Dink and Papa Dink that made the stay so special. If you're ever in Hvar, stay at Dink's Place!

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. Dink and his father went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay on the island. Good location, close to town and private beaches. Very clean and safe building. Fresh mandarins off the tree were a nice touch and the club night at dinks jazz bar that he organised was one of the highlights of our trip. I cannot recommend this hostel enough. I will be staying here every time I come to Hvar and would recommend to anyone. Keep up the great work!

If you go to Hvar stay at Dink's place. Great atmosphere even though it was low season. Lovely outdoor terrace areas, a proper kitchen and spacious dorms with comfortable beds. The rooms and bathrooms were sparkling clean. Papa Dink was so friendly and helpful.

Papa Dink is the most hospitable man you will ever meet. The hostel itself had great staff, and we really felt right at home. The location was amazing, and it was only a 10 minute walk to the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. Met some amazing people there as well. Would definitely come back!

Had a nice stay at this hostel, not far from the town center and from a beautiful beach. One drawback would be the common areas closing a bit too early (22h30).

When I checked in I was told about great restaurants, things to do (hire scooter or a boat) given a map with what beaches to go to and got a discount on pub crawl, all of the hostel went on pub crawl and it was a really fun night, common area at hostel was nice with a good atmosphere. Clean room and kitchen. Staff were really nice.

Amazing staff! Darko is an amazing chef and Stephanie led the pub crawl like a boss - that night was tons of fun! Nice kitchen and common area outdoors, beds and bathroom are clean, location is a bit far from center but close to ATM and supermarkets and easily walkable.

Out stay was perfect, the staff is really lovely but on our last day we were going to have breakfast with our food which was in the fridge, and the kitchen was locked. A sign on the door said the kitchen was open from 7am, and it was already 7:45. They only opened the kitchen at 8:10, which was the time we had to leave to catch our ferry. That was unpleasant but Dinks Place is still a very nice place to stay. The staff recommend activities and help you to plan them. There is also a pub crawl.

Hi Girls, we are glad you liked your stay at our hostel. We want to apologize about the inconvenience with a kitchen, it's our bad, you are right. The thing is that the cleaning lady comes at 8am and she opens the kitchen but we forgot to change the last year sign, from 7am to 8am. Thnx for letting us know about that :) Wish you all best, Dink's Place staff

Dear Kenny, we are really sorry if there was no soap in the bathroom you used, probably the cleaning lady didn't notice that. Next time just come at the reception and ask anything you need, we would be glad to help you. Wish you all best. Dink's Place staff :)
