The best place I stayed in Croatia. Its got everything you need. Really clean bathrooms, lockers, bar downstairs made everyone staying there feel included. Cool owner, great staff, really good atmosphere, and 1 beautiful 20 minute walk to the Old Town.
Great staff and great hostel. Very clean and welcoming.
Best atmosphere ive ever had at a hostel. Staff was extremely accommodating, very frienly and personal. Bar is great. Amazing group atmosphere especially in the future evenings. The owners of the hostel also played games and hung out with us, which I really liked. Super helpful and tried to make sure everyone had a good time. Learned some crazy drinking games!
Really nice hostel with friendly staff and great garden and terrace for relaxing and drinking. We went in late September so the hostel was pretty quiet which had its positives as I had a whole room to myself. Normally its quite busy though. Really nice facility and modern bathrooms. Good location, near swimming spots, supermarket and the bus station and only a 20min walk into the old town. The receptionist also organised for two of us to be taken to plitvice lakes national park which was helpful
It was almost the end of season, so the hostel was near empty, but I think with more people (and me not so ill) it is a fun place to stay.
Good enough hostel, Australian guy working was real friendly but local staff were not nice at all, need to cheer up a bit. Located 25min walk from old town and kitchen was soo small allowing 1 person to cook at a time. A stupid siesta rule from 2 until 5 meant I couldnt even play music. Good enough atmosphere with the bar downstairs and rooms clean and modern. But a reminder to the Croatian staff, cheer up, make the guests feel like you want them there.
Friendliest staff, amazing atmosphere, great facilities, convenient location. Look no further, STAY HERE!
This hostel is so much fun! The staff are so friendly and helpful and the hostel is the best place to relax and meet new people! I would love to go back!!!
LOVE this hostel. Without a doubt one of the best I have ever stayed in. A bit of a walk to old town but worth it since it's so close to beach, awesome beach bar with cliff jumping, and bus station. Great place to meet other travellers- especially solo travellers. Highly recommend!
one of the few hostels I wished I could have stayed longer! great atmosphere everyone was so nice, the guy at reception was super helpful. nice and close to the beach and bus station which was great. really clean, cool place
Such a fun and lovely hostel! The common space is gorgeous. Our private room was nice and had air conditioning. The staff was extremely helpful and the area is perfect! Right by the water and a nice stroll to the old town. Dave - the Aussie bartender - is awesome and the smoothies at the bar were so great!! Absolutely recommend!!!
The Drunken Monkey Hostel offered a kitchen and very clean bathrooms. The stuff was very friendly and helpful providing many insider tipps for Zadar. The hostel is about 20 minutes from the old town. That wasn't a problem at all but you have to keep that in mind. The rooms are pretty small but there are closets where you can lock your staff (just remember to bring a lock). There also a nice terrace and a small swimming pool. Great Hostel :)

Great hostel! Location is really good. A nice walk along the coastline to the old town. Staff very friendly and helpful, and the communal areas are great. Bar, terrace and splash pool areas. Would definitely recommend this place.
Absolutely loved my stay at the Drunken Monkey, I couldn't recommend it highly enough! The staff were all really friendly and atmosphere was great. The little bar and outside space were great places to meet people, and the garden and terrace were perfect places to chill out. Also with cliff jumping just a five minute walk away it was a great place to be hungover! Yeah so the walk into town is a bit long but you can walk along the sea and it is so close to the bus station! I loved it.
Cool hostel with nice atmosphere. Although not in the old town, it has some cool spots close to it. Make sure you try cliff jumping, it is just 5 minutes from the hostel.
Nice social hostel with decent facilities - bar, kitchen, garden, pool etc. staff were really great and welcoming. Location is a bit far out though... Would recommend
Boss is really friendly and helpful. We got a lot really good Imformation and experience. But other staff isn't. Location isn't really convenient. 10 mins walk from bus station. 20mins walk from old town.
Ace. Welcomed by really friendly, cool staff. Really cool set up right in the heart of some charismatic houses in Zadar. Guys at the hostel will tell you bout all the cool stuff and recommend bars/ restaurants. you can walk to the old town or get a taxi - dirt cheap. Great set up - easy to meet other travellers. BBQ's, pool, roof terrace... Drunken Monkey is brilliant.
The staff was amazing and we had a great stay here! I'd recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Zadar.
Just stayed there one night, but was able to rent a bike and visit the old town quick, which was nice. Had a great time during the evening in the bar with other travelers!
