Spotless hostel: super clean! Also the host was very keen on keeping things quiet between 11pm and 8am. Kitchen is well equiped, and drinking and eating on the rooptop terrace is briljant!! Also be sure to taste the biological local wine which is offered at a very local price. Only room for improvement would be to have all the private rooms at the end of a hallway, but that's also a matter of space.

Overall a great hostel. If I ever go back to hvar, I'm making sure to book at Helvetia again.


This hostel had a great view, air conditioning, a good shower and confortable beds. The owner of the hostel is also friendly and funny.


Great location. We stayed in the apartments which had their own kitchen and bathroom, and everything there was nice. Reception was always helpful and kind.


We stayed for six nights in this hostel in a private dorm. The location was excellent as it is only 2 minutes from everywhere. What made this hostel was the roof top terrace which overlooked hvar port and also the owner who was nicest man ever. Nothing was an issue for him and he helped to organise day trips for us with discount prices. Staying in hvar this is the perfect hostel.


Perfect. I like boss. Very quiet.


Excellent stay, great location, great failities.


My stay at Helvetia was perfect. Hostel owner Rino was extremely helpful and very hospitable. The hostel has everything you need to ensure a comfortable stay. The location couldn't be better situated overlooking the popular Riva. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this awesome hostel to fellow travellers :)


Location is perfect, less then five minutes walk from the catamaran stop, right in the city centre. Nice couple that run the place. Very clean and good facilities. Doesn't have a hostel atmosphere, more like a bed and breakfast but definitely recommended.


Very well run, cosy wee place the homemade wine was a hit and the roof terrace the perfect place to drink it. Friendly staff and good rates. An enjoyable experience

Great hostel, more close-knit than the party hostels. 20 beds total I think. 3 toilets and 3 showers. Excellent host. Perfect location. Small and good quality dorms. Very clean.


Perfect location, nice staff, very good accomodation and everything is very clean.
