Wow, this hostel is as Central as it gets. Located off the main square of Hvar, and behind the port, it is situated next to Kiva Bar, where the island hangs out at night till 2am. The hostel was really neat and clean. I was given an en suite 8 bedroom dorm and was impressed with the facilities and communal areas. The ladies who worked there (both of them were called Antonija) were really nice and helpful. Only downside is if you want to sleep at night this is not the place because of Kiva Bar.
brilliant location! Don't expect a quiet place, it's directly above an insane bar, which was good, if you like loud drunken tomfoolery, which I do. Staff were awesome, Antonija was constantly friendly and smiling, even though I was massively annoying, she didn't crack. You have to sit on the stairs to get wifi, which is odd, but the people I meet whilst doing so made up for it. No communal area, save the bar downstairs...
Overall the hostel is one of the best in Hvar. The lack of kitchen
I knew this hostel would be loud, clearly stating its above a bar and reading reviews from others... but that being said, I felt like the dance club was in my room even with earplugs in... I only stayed one night and moved to another hostel. unless you are planning to go out every single night, I would suggest staying elsewhere.
