Great place!!! Had me begging to book more nights :)

Great for solo travelers! The staff is great and they interact with all the guests. There's a pub crawl which is an awesome way to meet people (plus you get two free shots). This is definitely a party hostel in a party town. The kitchen is pretty well equipped but note that some of your food (even if it's labeled and in a bag) might get eaten by someone random. Overall it's a great time!

I had several strange interactions with the staff, seemed as if they were trying to insult me and/or try to assert dominance over the social gatherings (for obvious reasons). Or they could genuinely have that sort of personality, which I doubt. Either way, they didn't achieve their goals is this was the case. Great open plan kitchen area and views from the outside bar and our room. Another MAJOR plus was being able to set the air conditioning independently.

Really cool sociable hostel with bar crawl every night. Staff were great and came on nights out with us. Shout out to the guy with the crazy hat! The boat tour which they do is really good value and was great fun as we had a mix of guys and girls. Hostel was full when we went so there were a lot of people which was great. If you manage to get the terrace room it's the best room with a view and your own terrace so don't have to go to the beach that often. Not very good laundry service though.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at villa Skansi, location was a 10 minute walk from the main harbour also with a beach and convenience store on the doorstep. Would recommend the hostel for individual/group of travelers as the daily bar crawl and terrace bar are ideal for meeting other like minded people. 10/10 would definitely visit again.

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!
