I spent 3 days in Luka's Lodge and the experience was fantastic.The location is perfect, only 5 minutes walk from the port, and 10 from the main square.The atmosphere in the hostel is great, and the staff is really helpful, nice and cheerful! There are some maps and country guides available all the time and information on demand for trips, restaurants, etc. A pub crawl is organised almost everynight, quite interesting ;-) They also provide free coffee, juice,fruits and biscuits in the morning
Luka and the staff are absolutely amazing, especially Minka who ran the show. Nothing was too much for them. It was clear that they had 1 goal in mind which was too make sure everyone staying there was happy. There is such a great balance of an ambience for those looking to go party and respect for those who are sleeping. Our apartment was very nice and simple. We got shower towels and beach towels. Every day there were all different fruit. It is a 5 min walk to centre. Highly recommend it!!

I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone looking to stay in Hvar-particularly for people between the ages of 18-30 as the atmosphere is brilliant and value for money is great. It is a short walk away from most things and the staff are very friendly and helpful and even run a pub crawl every evening which is brilliant fun! Thank you Lukas Lodge!

It was annoying that after two nights we had to move apartment. We had massive heavy suitcases that we kept having to drag up and down stairs whilst the staff watched. Freezing cold showers. Rooms really small.
What you see in the picture is what you get...a great time! Not to mention the rooms are great and the staff very helpful - Minka and Ague you girls rock! My friends have been coming here for 5 years and it's easy to see why! Thanks for the stay!
we found the hostel without any problem- directions provided were very easy to follow. We were met by friendly staff and given an orientation to surrounding area, places to go and organised trips from the hostel that we could arrange- very helpful for the time we were there! Basic rooms with comfy beds and shared bathrooms which were always clean- good all round place to stay within 5mins walk from waterside and restaurants/bars
BEST WELCOME EVER! THE STAFF ARE GREAT! THE HOSTEL IS VERY NICE!
The room was exactly what we wanted. Privacy, location and air conditioning (hot summer!). All good!

Really wonderful hostel that has extremely helpful staff. Unfortunately, we only stayed one night in Hvar and thus, wasn't the most convenient choice in terms of location and the fact that we had large suitcases/were not backpacking since it is located farther uphill. We were placed in a building approx 100m from the main check-in location which made it a little harder to socialize, as well. However, when we had to unexpectedly get to Stari Grad to catch a ferry, Luka kindly offered to drive us
Good location, not too far from port/town. Booked a private but ended up at another building 2 houses down which was fine. Very friendly staff and they let you borrow items such as water shoes and towels for the beach
The hostel is located a small walk up the hill directly from the ferry arrivals. Its location is great to visit the city, beaches and supermarkets. Luka and his staff were very welcoming and sweet hosts. After deciding to stay another night, Luka even did his best to find another room for us due to the hostel being fully booked. In addition, as he is a native of the island he had great advice and new all the places to be. We are sure there's nothing Luka couldn't arrange for you.
Only stayed one night here but the staff are super friendly. Upon arrival we were greeted with banana and 1.5l cold water after long hike. This makes me happy.
We really enjoyed our stay here. Luka and staff were very friendly and we're always willing to help. Luka made us feel at home and we were very impressed with the we were given. Would stay here again if we return to Hvar.
Luka is what made this hostel! He is SO nice! Honestly reminded me so much of my dad. He welcomed us with snacks and drinks and gave us the rundown of Hvar. He just wants everyone to have a good time! He made phone calls to inquire about tours we wanted to do. Everyone who stayed was really nice. About an eight minute walk to the city centre, but it's nice because it's quiet at night (Luka makes sure of that) and you can sleep! It was my friend's birthday there and he made sure it was special.
Great clean new beds anD pillows, ac was working good. Can't be blasting music late, maybe not the best choice if your looking for a crazy party place. Overall amazing stay! Staffs super helpful and nice.
Amazing place! Location and specially staff! Great people, very helpfull and Kind!!! Specialy Minka she helped us a lot!!!
The staff were delightful - so welcoming and helpful at all times, I would highly recommend staying with these wonderful hosts
