The location was second to none and the build itself was quite neat, but my stay there was honestly soured by the lack of warmth (or even eye contact!) from most of the staff. They just seemed not to care about the guests, except one girl who was very friendly and actually smiled at us. Despite the fantastic location and good price, I would pay more to stay somewhere more personal and friendly next time.

There was a lovely girl on reception when we arrived and who seemed to be there the most who was incredibly helpful and kind, she even told us where we can get our ears pierced!! She made our stay all the more enjoyable and comfortable! Great hostel you get exactly what they tell you on the website!! Very accessible and near to everything you could need!!

Great location but don't plan on a good nights sleep! There's no AC so the bedrooms are sweltering at night.

The hostel itself was great and the staff were really nce. Two things bothered us though. As it was extremely hot, the AC was kind of a neccessity but unfortunately our room (double private) had none. We only got one fan in the room which wasn't even close to being enough to cool the room. Thus we had trouble sleeping and got very little sleep. The other thing was the use of kitchen. There is a notice that the kitchen is for staff only but fortunately we managed to negotiate the use of it ;)

Really nice hostel in a great location slap bang in the centre. You're not allowed to cook in the kitchen but can use all plates, cutlery, kettle etc.. Nice airy rooms!

shower was a bit small and dirty. Hooks in the room would have been nice, and enough lockers in the room for each person to have one. The location was excellent.

Good Classic young hostel in the heart center of Zadar. Very beautiful old house. The room was a bit dirty on the floor but the common bathroom were okay.

The shower only worked at certain times of the day, some staff were not very friendly or approachable. Breakfast was below average.

Very clean, very nice hostel. Powerful AC. Great location in the middle of old town. Quiet time at 11pm and no kitchen for guests.

The reception staff were friendly and helpful, and the twin room we had was spacious and secure (and very good value compared to similar rooms in Rovinj and Pula). The hostel is in a fantastic location in the middle of Zadar's old town (not a massive surprise I suppose). Zadar is a great place worth visiting. They could do with more toilets and showers though (and two of the toilets are in the same room as a shower, so only one can be used at the same time...) I'd recommend this hostel.

Staff really nice and helpful. Location is excellent right in the middle of the old town and it's possible to go walking to the bus station, about 10 min.

Easy to find, and in an excellent location! Made touring the city very enjoyable, and is no more than a 20 minute walk from the main bus station and only 15 minutes to the beach!

We had a nice time but why on earth were only staff members allowed to use the kitchen during the summer months?

Owner Comment (Hide)
Dear, we closed down the kitchen because we use it to prepare breakfast for our guests, and by the Croatian law, the same kitchen cannot be used both by the hostel and by its guests. Thank you for understanding.

We were three guests who had a great stay in our mixed 4 bed dorm. We had lockers for security and everyone in our room remembered to keep the door locked so no issues with security. Close proximity to the water and a nearby beach, Kolovare. Located right in the heart of the old town - shopping and food. The only negative of our stay is that a full kitchen was advertised, however was closed and listed as staff only from July 1 - September 1. Communal fridge was available in the kitchen.

Good place to stay. Staff was accommodating as I requested to change room (my gf was uncomfortable staying in a room full of guys) and they obliged.

Had a pleasant stay. The location was excellent and we felt the hostel was really good value. The facilities were good for especially the kitchen and common room. Only complaint would be that the bathrooms maybe weren't cleaned regularly enough as they were on occasion a bit dirty. Otherwise a pleasant stay

Location is absolutely perfect. Staff are extremely helpful and tell you what to see and do. Kitchen is only open until 7pm which is early too close.
