Free pub crawl every night which lends to everyone getting together and talking which is perfect for solo travellers.


Loved Hvar! The hostel had a beautiful view. The hosts are fun and take you on a pub crawl! In general, a party atmosphere so great if that's what you're looking for. Met a lot of fun people at this hostel.


The rooms could have used a little maintenance and the ceiling was pretty moldy. But, the staff and activites are great.


Awesome hostel with good clean facilities friendly staff and they organise social activities for you. I stayed in a dorm with a beautiful view over the harbour.


Had a great time at the hostel, good cooking facilities and everywhere was very clean despite the large number of people staying at the hostel! Everyone was very friendly and welcoming and there is always something going on in the evenings to get involved in. Not somewhere for people after a quiet night in.


I loved this hostel. Its a beautiful hostel, staff is very nice, its clean and has a fantastic kitchen where you can cook your own meal. I would definitely recommend if you are going to Hvar. The staff at the reception and the girls who cleaned the room( at least twice daily) are very friendly e incredible helpful.


This place was pretty good, they have a 10 pm quiet time and are fairly strict about it. Everything was really clean and nice staff. Our shower didn't drain properly so whenever anyone would use it the bathroom would be a pool..hopefully they get it fixed. All in all nice place to rest your head.


Awesome relaxed atmosphere in the hostel, travelling alone it was very easy to meet people. Bar crawl every night that with some free shots was pretty good and sociable. Well used kitchen was very handy for making food and tea/coffee.


Atmosphere here is awesome. Definitely the place to be for backpackers in Hvar. I got in and everyone was cooking dinner, jumped in for a cheap dime and made some spaghetti. They have a beautiful terrace and a great communal kitchen were everyone kinda chills out. Great place to be and watch the sunset and meet people, everyone was so friendly. Only bad thing I can say about this is that if you do not go out, you must go inside your rooms at 10:00. Come on man!! Otherwise, so great!


Lovely place! good hang out area, large dorms, good shower. The best thing is that they organize activities so it´s easy to meet other travelers. Couldn´t recommend it enough.


Villa Skansi was a great hostel close to Hvar town! Initially, I had a little trouble finding the hostel because the address was different, but eventually found my way. Rooms were clean and comfortable and activities are organized every night for guests by staff. Would definitely come back!


This is definitely a party hostel. Staff were very friendly. Rooms were nice and big. Location was very good. Very nice view from hostel.


This is a incredible hostel with a amazing view of the sunset. But the best thing is the staff. I've stayed in more the 50 hostels around the world. And this staff is the best i've seem. They are aways try to help, they try to socialize everybody with games and free pub crawls. And they go drink with you like friends. They just need to improve the internet because sometimes is hard to connect, but you are in a paradise. try to forget internet! But Believe it! This is the place to stay in Hvar!


We stayed in a 10-bed dorm and there was an en-suite washrrom which was awesome. The hostel has a huge outdoor hangout area (including a bar, which creates a really social atmosphere at nighttime), a large and equipped kitchen, and tons of showers and washrooms. Hostel is less than a 5 min walk to the beach and just a bit over 5 min to the main part of downtown Hvar. Girls working provided lots fo local recos and organized a pub crawl in the evening. Fun time!


Staff and super friendly and informative and the hostel itself is really nice - very clean, big rooms, good kitchen facilities (3 big bar fridges) and common areas. Very social atmosphere, met some lovely people there, although quiet time is a little early for a party based hostel we went out on the pub crawl and had a good night. Would recommend this hostel to other travellers, thankyou for having me :)


Best hostel I have visited!! Amazing staff and an awesome atmosphere. You can't find a better hostel than this one! Will definitely be back soon. Love saz xxxx

Great place to stay-clean and a great view with lots of outdoor seating. Easy to meet people. They organise a daily pub crawl. Walking distance to beaches, shops and restaurants. Some staff were rude not very friendly.


Lively hostel with great facilities. The staff were friendly but overly so. It's a party orientated hostel, they will bring you out on pub crawls ect, but don't worry if you need peace and quiet because they clear all the noisy people out by 10pm. Great stay but the staff were very rude to us when we were 10 minutes late leaving our room to check-out. Made us realize how fake and put-on a lot of the smiles were, it's nicer to be at a hostel where the workers are more genuine and laid back.

Thank you for a nice review but we wanted just to clear your check out time.We are very flexible about it, but when you were late 1 hour and 30 minutes we asked you nicely if you can make your check out cause we want dorms to be clean and fresh sheets made for new guests as same as it was when you checked in. Cleanliness is very important to all travelers and all staff try to do their best and do all guests as friends.


This is a great hostel, one of the best I've been. Feels almost like a resort. There are activities every night as well. Staff is friendly, and it's also quite cheap.

Hostel is excellent! Close to the main port, supermarket and beaches and the directions are very easy to follow. Staff were really friendly and helpful-we were greeted with watermelon! They have a nightly pub crawl as well and a lovely patio to sit on. Will definitely be going back to Hvar and staying there!
