The hostel is located about 5-10 minutes walk from the center of Hvar town on a hill in a more residential area. The staff was super friendly and helpful and the outdoor kitchen is a huge plus. Great place for a peaceful stay.


Really enjoyed my stay here! It was super clean, great view, and beautiful sunsets. Definitely recommend going on the bar crawl!


One of the best hostel experiences I've ever had


Loved our stay! Great hostel, great vibe. Staff rally lovely too. Stayed for day longer than planned and could've stayed even longer!


Atmospherewise this hostel is great. It has a patio area where travelers can hang out. My only complaint is that the rooms are a bit cramped and small. Although the small and crampedness made for an excellent avenue to meet people. The room without the AC got a bit stuffy at night. The people working the desk and pub crawls were great and upbeat people.


Such a fun hostel, good location and even better atmosphere. There's a bar in the hostel and the social area outside is equipped with bean bags and hammocks, will definitely be returning!

Green Lizard Hostel was a brilliant stay and a joy to be there! you couldn't ask for more cheerful and helpful staff that are extremely resourceful and concerned only for the comfort of the guests stay. My room certainly wasn't too hot - we had aircon and the kitchen is fully equipped and great for whipping up proper meals. Nice evening chilled vibes and an organised pub crawl put on every night if you fancy going to party. Don't hesitate to stay here! Big thanks to Vanessa - Lovely owner!


Great hostel! Loved the outdoor area- beanbags & hammocks! Staff were amazing, had lots of fun on pub crawl!! Great hostel to meet people! Kitchen are is great but wouldn't of been able to use it if it was raining. Location is great, the view from the hostel is amazing. Would definitely stay again


The staff are fantastic and fun, hostel clean and comfortable. I did have the best sleep of my whole trip so far there (been travelling 2 months) . There is a very relaxed feel during the day and changes into bit of a party scene in the evening. Great fun! There are hammocks and beanbags also. Security isn't amazing, the doors to the rooms are left open and all the rooms have the same code to enter.. But other than that great hostel, will definitely stay again!

Thank you for your review! We appreciate it tremendously. I'm sorry the security was a bit of a concern for you but we would like to say that each room downstairs uses a different code. We will exercise precaution with guests leaving the doors open as we want to ensure efficient security. We were so blessed to have you girls as our guests and hope to host you again! Safe travels!!


Great hostel, the staff was very friendly and helpful. It is located in an exclentent location, 5 min walk from the main square. We met lots of great people and had a lot of fun.

Hostel had everything we needed in it, only thing is no a/c means it gets very hot at night time. Staff were really helpful and location is perfect!


Party party party hostel... Rooms are very dirty almost constantly, everyone is pushed into doing their pub crawl later during the night. The price is way too much but also on one of the greatest party island in the world.
