This is an incredible hostel! Right by the dock, sea facing room with amazing dusk views! Short walk to the amfiteatro. The best part was the staff and the people there! First Carmela, really helped me out with the parking situation. I drove so I had to park for 2 days. Carmela gave me an insiders secret on where to park for free in the city! Then Jasmina, one of the co-owners hung out with us, took us to a cool Jazz bar. They've got a really really cool terrace with great party ambience.


Pretty nice hostel in a good location with nice views over the marina. Terrace bar was cool. Just one disappointment - we booked there after reading on the hostel website that they had a free laundry service (which we were in pretty dire need of). Upon arrival we were told that the hostel had no laundry service at all. Staff were very pleasant and pointed out launderettes in town, but no explanation was offered for why this non-existent service had been advertised.


The only thing missing in the hostel is a regular size locker. The hostel makes available a small coded vault but it is too small. other than that ...Spotless, everything is excellent, from cleanliness to staff excellence and location. Great value for money.

we stayed at the Riva hostel for two nights, we've enjoyed our stay but had a few minor complains. we stayed in what the hostel called a superior double room, for the price we paid we were expecting a little bit more. the double bed was terrible, the view on the alleyway/ roof terrace not much better. further they didn't serve any kind of breakfast. still the hostel is on a great location, has very friendly and knowledgeable staff and was very clean.

Such a great stay at Riva! Easy to get to, amazing staff, and great homey feel! Met some awesome people in the kitchen, a great place to hang out. Free towels were great! Staff is great about helping you book excursions, made it very effortless!


Excellent hostel in a great location and with the best possible folks running the place..Highly recommend !


clean hostel with spacious dorm rooms and friendly staff! It has a beautiful terrace with a nice atmosphere. My two cons are : - not enough silverware! - the shuttle service. It didn't run and they promised to get us a taxi but they didn't and we needed to get one our self :(


Nice hostel! The entrance seems sketchy but when you get upstairs is really pretty. The staff was really helpful, mainly the lady. Walking distance to the main spots.


Had a really nice stay! Such a cool hostel, will definitely go here again if I'm ever in pula.


The bed linen seemed clean only at the first sight and the toilet paper was finished most of the times.


Brilliant hostel in a great location. Super super helpful staff, helped us out with all out problems!


Very good value for money, almost unbelievable. Nice and helpful staff, great atmosphere :-)
