The girls were very helpful and we had a really good time at this hostel - Is very clean and newly renovated. No common room or kitchen facilities but we didn't need this the night we were staying. Overall was perfect!

Had a great time at Marinero Hostel. Megan and Georgie, with their sidekick Limpy (the cat), were always their to help you out and make sure you were hvaring a good time whether it be in the hostel, the conveniently located Kiva Bar and later on in the night, Pink Champagne. I ended up extending my stay in hvar by two nights because I had such a good time at this hostel with these girls. it does lack a common room which wasn't very ideal, although it i still very easy to meet people.

I would definitely recommend this Hostel and Hvar. Marinero is in a brilliant location, right in the centre of the action, and it also has a restaurant attached to it which serves great fish dishes where hostel guests get 10% off. Georgie and Megan the girls who work at the hostel work very hard to make sure everyone is having a great time and making the most of their time in Hvar. Hvar is a beautiful Island with a really chilled out vibe. I would definitely return and recommend to everyone!

Georgie and Megan really made us feel welcome, by far the best hostel staff we've met on our trip. Helped us out with maps of the island and were great fun to have a few drinks with at kiva bar and club. Carpe Diem was amazing that night. Will be returning in the future.

Nice hostel with a good restaurant under it. You get some discount at the restaurant if you stay in the hostel. Dosent have a common room so you dont meet that many people, wifi did not work anywhere but the first floor. The lady who runs the place was very nice and helpful.

Like- Great staff that were always there to help! Locks on all doors as well has huge luggage storage spaces! Dislike- No kitchen to cook so we always had to eat out and no common room to socialise and meet people.

Awesome location if you don't mind lots of noise from the bars and night life! Very central location to everything. Helpful staff as well.

Enjoyed staying here. Wifi in the rooms would've been better than having to stand in the hall. Very clean, loud until 2am but everyone is there to party anyway. The weirdest thing about this hostel is they positioned the first Marinero Hostel Sign down the ally way right above some old Croatian lady's apartment. She must get backpackers walking into her apartment everyday judging by they way she yelled at me haha, I think the hostel should move/change the sign for her benefit.

Couldnt ask for a better location...and above an incredible seafood restaurant. Very clean, modern rooms with lockers. Very small, no kitchen, breakfast or internet access but did have free wifi.

This is a great hostel. Great location - couldn't be closer to the action. Great staff. The meals (for which you get a duscount) are beautiful. However... If you're a light sleeper or hoping to go to bed before 2am, this place is not for you. There is a bar (nightclub) directly underneath that is heaving with people and plays loud music until 2am. This didn't bother us, and anyone staying in a hostel will probably be out at night anyway (the nightlife here is fantastic).

The description of this hostel does not give it enough credit. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the staff absolutely amazing! The location is ideal in the centre of the town, on top of the busiest and best bar, Kiva, which as a guest you get a free shot at for every night you're there. As a group of 7 girls we stayed for a week and we could not have asked for a better place especially for the price we paid. Honestly would give it 10/10 !

Hostel Marinero is well located in the middle of bars and hvar night life. The rooms are nice and clean with air conditioned. The hostel and most of places of Hvar does not accept credit cards as payment condition, so ensure you have kunas or euros for the payment. Additionally, the hostel has an excellent restaurant for reasonable prices. Really enjoyed my stay in this Hostel and recommend it.

We loved our stay here as we could meet many new people, either in our room or in the hallways and the prime location meant that it was convenient to get to the beach in the day and clubs in the evening. Although it is directly above a nightclub which has music going until 2 so consider that. The staff were great and helped my friend out when she locked her key in her locker.

The hostel is in a perfect location, great rooms and very clean, but there is no staff most of the time, so if you need to ask anything you would have to go somewhere else.

Fabulous hostel! Very close the the harbor! And the facility and decoration of the room make this hostel even the level of a hotel! And the people are nice there, I met some really good people and had a good time! Definitely recommend this place if you wanna find a decent place to stay in Hvar.

Nice rooms and accomodations. It is quite close to everything. Friendly atmosphere, Altough if you are not there to party, the bar very close to the hostel makes it hard to have a good night of sleep before 2 AM

Clean and fantastic restaurant at great prices just outside. No common area but Kiva bar is just downstairs. Definitively recommended.

We booked Hostel Marinero last minute and there appeared to be an error on their website as they were already full. None the less, the staff located an apartment just up the street for us for the exact same price which was very kind of the considering that virtually every accommodation was already booked. Hostel Marinero is basically a Restaurant that happened to have rooms. There isn't any reception or anything a normal hostel has. Quite strange.
