We loved our stay at Lounge Hostel Carnvale. The hostel is in very nice, clean condition, and husband and wife running the hostel were very nice and helpful. The husband was very knowledgeable from spending so many years in the tourism industry. Great location as well. We will stay there again.


They do not give you a key to the hotel door. You must ring a bell and wait for them to answer. We came back at 2am one day which they had no problem with but had to wait 20min to get let into the building. Other then no common room a very clean and nice place to stay. We actually added an extra night to our stay there


Location and cleanliness are the highest point. Atmosphere and hospitality are the downsides. The owner seems to be bothered by our presence. On his faces and mannerisms he clearly shows his dissatisfaction with the duty of dealing with customers. The dark floor and lounge music is creepy. The rooms are worse than those who you find at student residencies.


Exceptionally clean hostel, there was someone cleaning the entire day after facilities were used! Good value and right downtown Rijeka. There is no common area, so it was tough to meet people. Sheets, towels and tea/coffee/croissant were provided free. Big lockers in the room available.


Proprietors are very kind and helpful. Towels and light breakfast provided (coffee/tea + brioche). Good central location close to buses/trains. Clean, pleasant accommodation. Four flights of stairs (no lift) so better for backpackers or hand luggage only. My double room was the the children's part of a family room, containing two bunk-beds and no washbasin, for which I had to pay double occupancy although travelling solo but still reasonable considering high-season prices elsewhere.


As I had read in other comments and now confirmed, this place feels more like a hotel, being a great option for a night's sleep. 2 minutes from the bus station and located on the square where the busiest street of town starts. Very clean, good facilities, no hostel atmosphere.
