The hostel facilities are getting aged and under comfort standards you can find anywhere else, the owner must be a greedy person trying to cow the hostel but the manager was a wonderful host and made considerable efforts to make the hostel lively and busy so we had a very pleasant stay.

This hostel was an awesome place to stay because of the amazing staff. Jesse and Emma made me feel right at home and made sure my friends and I had a stellar time (my favourite nights out travelling so far!). However, the owner of this place needs to get real and get air conditioning if he/she is going to charge 50 bucks a night for a shared room. On a more positive note, the place was very very clean and there were hammocks outside! Definitely stay here if you're looking for a good time!

I loved my stay here. The staff were incredible and went above and beyond to make sure that everything went well for us. As with everyone else, our only complaint was the lack of AC.The hostel is in a great location, but it is definitely the staff that make the stay so great. Good kitchen and hang out area.

Wonderful atmosphere cultivated by the staff. Jesse, the manager, is a very enthusiastic host who makes a supreme effort to make each and every guest feel welcome and included. The evenings at the bar are very social, and the walk into town and the nightlife is not an arduous one. The hostel is not air-conditioned, which makes sleep during summer nigh on impossible due to the heat. This is really the only negative aspect to the hostel, and is probably worth enduring for the social element.

The green Lizard so far was one of my favorite hostels to stay at. The hostel itself has a really good vibe too it really great for meetin people as a solo traveller, although the best asset of this hostel is the staff! The manager Jessie makes you feel right at home from the moment you step through the doors, and continues to make a huge effort to make your stay at the Green Lizard a good one!

Quite expensive for but this may be Hvar prices. Staff were awesome very kind, and atmosphere fantastic - social and easy to meet people and worth the stay for this, cool space to socialise. Key pads to lock doors although both doors on lower floor had same code, windows also opened to the street so wasn't sure about security although it was fine. Need to get some fans it was unbearably hot in the rooms at night and the ceiling fan only worked with the night on.

The hostel can definitely use air conditioning because it gets pretty hot and smelly at night. The fans don't really help cool the place down so much. Upside, very easy to meet people. The male receptionist was very kind and helpful as was the female. However, at one point I was getting rather frustrated with the female. I patiently waited at front desk in front of her to ask for general info as she gabbed on the phone with a friend for SEVERAL minutes not even acknowledging my presence!

Owner Comment (Hide)
The female receptionist has currently left Green Lizard Hostel. New and friendly staff have been employed to make sure our guests have an enjoyable stay. We apologise for any inconvenience. We look forward to meeting our new guests.

Nice place to stay, could be good to hace the A/C. The girl at the reception Sonia is really kind!

It's fairly acceptable but not what to expect for the price. It doesn't have air conditioner so the room is hot and sometimes smelly. The location was comfortable.

If you're looking for a place to hang out and meet other travellers, stay at the Green Lizard. The outdoor kitchen is awesome for making communal meals, there's a ton of common space, and Sanja (the manager) is really welcoming and hilarious. Plus there are hammocks. Hvar was definitely a highlight of our time in Croatia!

Having previously stayed here 3 years ago and had a great time, it was the obvious choice for me returning to Hvar. I am so thankful that I did, as it has radically improved! Thanks to the manager Sanja, the hostel was a perfect environment for meeting people and having a good time (whether you prefer to chill out or intensely party, which is rare). She was amazing, and the hostel was clean, secure, and had a nice (if basic) outdoor kitchen. Lack of A/C wasn't an issue for me. Overpriced!!

There are better and cheaper options in Hvar. The bedrooms are quite packed and we had a nice enough receptionist but she was yelling/talking loudly in the morning and came into the room on her phone while making beds waking everyone up. Very annoying after a night out. Nice view however.

Green Lizard is a nice hostel. Good security, and great outdoor spaces (the hammock is a real plus). However, my room didn't have air conditioning of any real kind. For a place like Hvar, in the summer, when even the nights can be in the high 20s, this is a real downside. It was quite difficult to sleep in the heat, especially with people crammed into a small room. Get an air conditioner and this review would be a 100%.

Hostel is very well located and just 5 minutes to all the fun in Hvar, it has an outdoor kitchen where you can cook and share with other travelers, ideal if you are on your own. For the staff, Sanja was great, all clean, and very good company!! Cheers!! J

Great location to Hvar town itself with some pretty amazing views of the town, harbour and surrounding islands. Great vibe and staff who couldn't be more willing to help you get the most out of your stay in Hvar.
