Perfect location, only a short walk from the centre of town and moments away from 2 close supermarkets. Perfect stay if your wanting somewhere a bit quieter but still within a short walk to beaches and bars.

Everything was perfect. Although you have to walk a bit to reach the apartment from the center, this is quite common in Hvar town for other apartments. In addition, they pick you up when you arrive on the island and then they drive you where your need to take the transport to your next destination. They also facilitate you information and anything you need to enjoy your stay in Hvar. So I highly recommend this place to everyone going to Hvar.


Our host was so kind and helpful, always stopping in for a chat, and left some beautiful fresh figs for us. The room and the bathrooms were immaculately clean. Just a short walk down the hill to Hvar harbour. A beautiful terrace for sitting out on too.


Really great stay at house kokolo. The rooms were clean and well maintained so were the bathrooms and kitchen. Branco the owner was welcoming and very easy going. Great outdoor baloney to meet other traveller's and have a few drinks in the afternoon. Would recommend to others and will return for another stay!


Fantastic hostel. More like a hotel than a hostel. They only have 2 bed rooms. The hosts are amazing! They catered for our every need plus more...helped us out in so many ways! Will definitely be staying again and will always recommend Kokolo!


Very friendly owners, pleasant room, nice terrace. We enjoyed using the kitchen and cooking facilities. Located up a hill from town - but only about a 10-15 min walk to the centre of town. Nice beach nearby. Would recommend.

This hostel is located a 10 min uphill walk from the harbour and has an excellent beach close by. We stayed in a double ensuite which was a big clean and very spacious room. However it did not have airconditioning as advertised. Neither did we have a private kitchen as advertised - we only had a fridge and had to share our cooking facilities with 2 other couples. Also we did not have cable tv as advertised. Owner was helpfull but a little intrusive compared to other hostels.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi dear guests. There is a small kitchen in every studio with the private fridge, but we provide cooking in the separate kitchen to avoid smells in studio. Cable tv we provide in a common room on the first floor and in some other units. Branko the owner has a strange sence of humour and sometimes guests misundersood him. Sorry for any inconvenience.


Great little place, ten minutes walk from the main drag. The walk is lovely and the best beaches are much closer to this accomodation than they are if you stay in the centre. The owner Branko and his with are great. The are very welcoming and they take great great care of their guests and their premises. Each room has their own little patio for breakfast and lunch This is a place to chill not to party. Branko made that very clear on arrival. Great place. I highly recommend it.


Very nice staffs! The owner, Branco, is an outstanding person.


The staffs gave us all information we needed and helped us with our necessities. They also offer a ride from the bus station to the hostel and from the hostel to the bus station!!! The hostel is not in the city center, but it is just few minutes walking from it. I had a good time in there!
