The hostel itself felt secure but we felt cautious as to where to leave our belongings due to the mess left in the dorms by other travelers. There was a great emphasis on the "Pub Crawl" which turned out to be only two bars and then left to our own devices to get to Carpe Diem - the only club on the island open past 2am. Unfortunately the abruptness of the receptionist upon early check out was the most disappointing of it all. Don't expect to get much sleep here either.

Its a good big hostel, but too expensive for what they offer. All the staff are helpful and want to make you always have fun. Its well located and have a good bar inside the hostel, so its good for who want to party. In spite of the high price charged for the accomodation, they also charge for the towel.

Great hostel! The people are very friendly and there are a lot of nice places to hang out and the terrace is amazing! When you arrive you are getting a refreshment and a lot of tipps about the area. The rooms (2-bed-room) are very nice and clean too. Only critic is that the room could be a little bit bigger. And earplugs are useful too;)

Stayed here with a group of 6 other girls for 4 nights (30th July-3rd August) and absolutely loved every minute! Staff were amazing and so helpful right from when we arrived, great facilities, and loads of space to chill outside and meet other people staying at the hostel. The burger and beer night was so welcome after a long day travelling, and the bar in the hostel was really good value! Big shout out to all the staff, especially Nick, "Captain Jack" and Felipe who helped make our trip great!

Had the most amazing stay here! Only stayed for 2 nights and definitely regretted it, wish I could've stayed longer. The staff are so friendly and helpful and try their hardest to give you the most fun stay possible. I'm definitely coming back to the island and definitely definitely staying at Villa Skansi.

If you are looking for a hostel to party in, this is not the one for you! For some reason this hostel seems to have some real dillusions of grandeur - whilst they offer the ammenties of a budget hotel/ hostel they expect you to act like you are staying in a 5 star resort.... Overall the gap year staff where nice -something which, unfortunately, cannot be said for the owners. Stay here if you like cold showers and expensive drinks - im pretty sure i had some money stolen too. Advice = avoid.

Pretty good hostel! Lots of people here but for pre drinks you could only buy drinks from their bar so a bit annoying paying 30 kuna for a beer when you can get four for the same price at supermarket. Bar crawl is pretty fun though and Darna is the man!

Villa Skansi was the perfect way to stay in Hvar. The facilities were in excellent conditions and the rooms were always clean. The location was close to old town (10min walk) but this wasn't a problem as after a big night you had quietness and it was peaceful to sleep:) the aircon was in great conditions and the showers are amazing!! The best part of the hoste is the bbq area with the chilling area which is decorated in a very Zen style. Would definety recommend to solo or group travelers!

For a hostel in hvar, this is a poor excuse for one. Overpriced to begin with, very rude and strict staff. We made one noise out on the terrace and were told to go to bed immediately. The beds are too close to each other end to end, one night there was someone else's foot half on my pillow. If you are looking for an atmosphere and value for money DO NOT DTAY HERE.

A bit expensive for a hostel, but you are in Hvar where everything is expensive. They have the best external area I've even seen. Barbecue area, chill out area and bar. Very easy to meet new people if you are traveling by yourself.

This was by far the best place that I stayed at. The rooms are spacious and mine had a terrace with a great view. The staff is really friendly and they have a large patio/bar area that makes it easy to meet people. Kitchen facilities downstairs are nice too. Scotty, Rhys and Alex run the bar crawl each night and they are awesome guys that make everyone feel welcome. I highly recommend staying here, you will meet great people and have a blast. -will

Very socialable youth hostel. The atmosphere is great, you can feel the party mood every night. The pubcrawl organised every night also helps to meet new people. I just think its very expensive for a bed in a 8bed dorm
