Very nice place with very good value for money.
The people that run the hostel are very nice and helpful. Hostel is a bit of a walk to the main attractions of the city (about a 20 minute walk from the bus station and about 15 minute walk to the city center). Good facilities however a lot of random stuff was broken like most of the lockers.
The hostel lacks a doorbell so if you come very late/early it might be hatd to enter. The hostel itself is clean and with a good location but there are not enough places to electronic devicses.
Nice and clean and staff really helpful! Quiet but probably due to the time of year.
I had such a good experience at Pula Art Hostel! The staff is very friendly, kind and helpful! I love this place and can't wait to go back to visit Croatia, Pula. When I arrived the first thing the owner did was to tell me where the best and most beautiful spots are in Pula. I traveled alone and met this amazing group of people, we went to the places that the owner said is the best such as nice beaches and cliff jumping and we had the best time! Definitely worth it!
This hostel was great. The owner greeted us, sat down with us and showed us a map of the city and everythig we could do in details! His wife then showed us around the hostel (it is the 2nd hostel that does this in our 7 weeks of traveling). They help us plan our days, answer our questions, the owner also gave us a ride to the airport for a certain price, very nice from him to do so. The hostel was clean. The location of the hostel is walking distance to everything. Loved every bit of it.
Great hostel. The owner is super knowledgable and takes the time to tell you where to go and what to see, they seem very enthusiastic. I only stayed one night but it was cool and met some good people. Don't hesitate to stay here when in Pula.
I had a great time at Pula Art Hostel, Ying was extremely welcoming and gave me great advice on what to see in the area, especially Prementura and the national park there, which is a highlight of croatia. I was able to wash clothes and cook in the kitchen (has an oven), and there is an open social area inside and out, great for meeting other travellers. I'd definitely stay at this hostel again
The staff is so friendly, they are available for any question and very welcoming,when I was there ,there was no checkout time the staff told us to sleep well and leave the hostel in a good shape. the hostel is just 15 walking to the city center and is pretty nice, the bad thing is that I didn't feel safe about my luggage because all the lockers are the same so anyone in the hostel could open your locker and steal your stuff. Fortunately it didn"t happened to me. In general I'd recommend this hos
Great place to stay! The host is great! Very funny! And the ambience and services are perfect. It's a fair 10 min walk to the city Centre. I would recommend this place for sure.
Hostel is very to city center. Hosts are very kind and nice.
Pula Art Hostel is an absolutely fantastic place to stay!! It is in a perfect location for exploring Pula itself and the local area, with beautiful beaches / caves just a 10 -15 minute walk away! The hostel is family run. The owners are very friendly and often helped us to plan day trips etc. For which we are very grateful, thanks Guys :) We would definitely recommend the Art hostel to others. We hope to see you again soon. Joe, Sam and Rachel!

People very friendly, amazing decor with art everywhere, beautiful mosaic patio outside to sit at, great atmosphere - nice people and felt like a house rather than a hostel - would definitely recommend In terms of security there were no safes or anything but the actual hostel was secure from the outside No computer to use
Amazing stay. Everything there was perfect. Amazing location 10 mins from centre and 15 from besch( walking). The people taking the hostel are incredible. We got there at 6 am and the man explained everything giving us clear info about pula and they let us rest on the sofas until a bed was available. His wife is super nice. She was always worried about us and she did a fish bbq with all of us!!!! She bought the fish and made us cut it and cook it, which was fun to meet everyone. 100% recommended
Owner was so friendly and helpful. The hostel has a slightly weird layout - I stayed in the ground floor 8 person dorm where there were no lockers (other rooms have them) and the door opened right onto the street and wasn't often locked. This room has its own kitchen (only basic), shower and toilet which meant it was quiet and lots of space. No plugs near beds. Décor could do with a revamp but hostel is clean. 15 min walk into town centre. Bus stop and little supermarket right outside hostel.
Staff is very good. A few things that should be improved: - Lockers, they don't have it in the rooms; - Put a mirror in the bathroom; - The shower in the middle of the kitchen is not good at all. We don't have any place to put our things (clothes, towel, etc) in the cabine..
Although the hostel is somewhat far from the bus station (especially in hot weather with bags), as soon as I arrived the manager was friendly and very helpful, swiftly checking me in, giving me a free map of Pula with a quick talk about where she recommends going, and getting me to my room quickly. Small shared safes are available for items such as passports and phones. The atmosphere was excellent and the hostel seems to attract some wonderful and interesting people - very clean and well-kept
They have a porno shower in the middle of the room. Though that would be nice under certain circumstances it was not what I expected.
The owners are lovely people, keen to assist in any way possible. However they do need to pay attention to putting locks on the bathrooms and improving the kitchen facilities. Instructions on how to operate the aircon system would be useful. Can be a noisy hostel depending on who stays. Hostel is expensive for the state its in, have stayed in better for less.
