Very good location, good atmosphere, friendly staff and well equipped kitchen. It definitely worth the price.


The security guard can be really rude and aggressive, but the other staff are really nice!


We had a great stay at Providencia and met a bunch of lovely people. We'll definitely recommend the hostel to anybody going to Novalja !


Excellent Hostel and well situated, the staff are very friendly and helpful in whatever you may need, don't hesitate to chose it if you are planning to stay in Novalja


6 bed dorm on 2nd floor is way to hot even with Windows closed


Providenca is the typical party/youth hostel. We can't complain because we knew it before going there. The average age there is early 20s. Beyond that, the rooms were OK, the bathrooms were really good and the staff was friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, you're in the middle of everything, but still it's not a noisy street, so you can sleep without a problem.


Excellent and very well located youth hostel provided with a really lovely staff! The small number of rooms creates a very intimate atmosphere where everybody knows each other! The only thing missing was an air conditionner in private rooms (it can get really hot in there), otherwise just perfect!


The staff is really nice! Mainly the 2 girls in the reception and the security. They are very kind and helped us with everything. The hostel location is also very good. The main problem is that the bedroom was very hot and the Internet not the best. But in general I liked a lot this hostel


Really good hostel. Great location and the staff make this place really fun. Always friendly and helpful. Good place to come especially if you want to party.


Very clean. Amazing atmosphere. Our own locker keys. good air conditioning. perfect place. Did not however get the room that we booked for. If we'd have known we were not going to be put in the room we wanted (a 6 bed to stay altogether) we would have booked elsewhere.

Excellent location. Clean, safe, nice rooms, nice kitchen. 10/10 thanks to Sara Perro Ivana & Marina


The best receptionists ever , great hostel overall.


Location and the hostel itself were very good as where most off the staff. Unfortunately the rules let the hostel down, such as having to leave the hostel or go to your room after 10. After this time you are treat like a child on a school trip. When you come back after a night out members of staff will not allow you to talk at all even at a whisper in the corridors or common room, one member of staff ended up screaming swear words at me at 4am after I asked why we weren't allowed to whisper....
