Villa Skansi was a great hostel close to Hvar town! Initially, I had a little trouble finding the hostel because the address was different, but eventually found my way. Rooms were clean and comfortable and activities are organized every night for guests by staff. Would definitely come back!

We stayed in a 10-bed dorm and there was an en-suite washrrom which was awesome. The hostel has a huge outdoor hangout area (including a bar, which creates a really social atmosphere at nighttime), a large and equipped kitchen, and tons of showers and washrooms. Hostel is less than a 5 min walk to the beach and just a bit over 5 min to the main part of downtown Hvar. Girls working provided lots fo local recos and organized a pub crawl in the evening. Fun time!

Staff and super friendly and informative and the hostel itself is really nice - very clean, big rooms, good kitchen facilities (3 big bar fridges) and common areas. Very social atmosphere, met some lovely people there, although quiet time is a little early for a party based hostel we went out on the pub crawl and had a good night. Would recommend this hostel to other travellers, thankyou for having me :)

Lively hostel with great facilities. The staff were friendly but overly so. It's a party orientated hostel, they will bring you out on pub crawls ect, but don't worry if you need peace and quiet because they clear all the noisy people out by 10pm. Great stay but the staff were very rude to us when we were 10 minutes late leaving our room to check-out. Made us realize how fake and put-on a lot of the smiles were, it's nicer to be at a hostel where the workers are more genuine and laid back.

This is a great hostel, one of the best I've been. Feels almost like a resort. There are activities every night as well. Staff is friendly, and it's also quite cheap.

Hostel is excellent! Close to the main port, supermarket and beaches and the directions are very easy to follow. Staff were really friendly and helpful-we were greeted with watermelon! They have a nightly pub crawl as well and a lovely patio to sit on. Will definitely be going back to Hvar and staying there!

Not my kind... Reception girls sitting behind a desk in hostel t-shirt. You have to wear a wristband during your stay. Felt a bit like a childrens camp. :( Staff was friendly and helpful. To me it felt like lots of young people coming to party and have all day sleep-ins and hangovers. Most dorms open right into the outdoor kitchen or tables/sitting area. Must be a lot of noise for them. Left after one night, and then had a more than excellent stay at relaxt Earthers hostel!

Dear,all our staff has professional clothes so you can always know who is working in order to provide help and good service throughout the hostel at anytime, day or night.Also wristbands are for security reason (to keep high level of security in the hostel.That is why we have never had a security issue here)and for the free shots on our free pub crawl every night.All people in dorm close to new outdoor kitchen loves it.Gathering together and making dinners together makes so much fun for them.

Can't ask for better staff, so friendly, informative and giving you watermelon as you arrive. The hostel had a great atmosphere and easy to meet other travellers. They cleaned the rooms twice a day and there were lockers. Massive kitchen facilities and the offer of a pub crawl each night. I'd recommend staying here in Hvar!

One of the best hostels we stayed in this trip. Great atmosphere! The set up is really good as big kitchen /common area making a really social environment. Although the kitchen and fridges were not the cleanest we had seen, the bathrooms looked almost brand new in the dorm we were in, the best we had had all trip. I would definitely recommend staying here, had such a great time!

This is my second time in ten days at villa skansi. I rate the hostel 5 stars. i have never seen a hostel so clean. It is situated perfectly, it is close to the port and also the best beaches. The hostel was by far the best hostel i have ever stayed at in my two year adventure across the globe. The atmosphere is very friendly. The staff went above and beyond to make my stay incredible. The hostel organized different events every night which brought everyone together to create the awesome vibes

Friendly, helpful staff. Really good shower facilities. Rooms are nice and comfy. A bit unorganised- I was shown to my bed that turned out belonged to someone else.

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at! From the moment I walked through the door I felt welcomed and the overall vibe of the place is great. Rooms are big, modern and spacious (air con was a nice plus!). The kitchen and common areas are all very nice and the free pub crawl is so much fun! The staff are awesome and the security guards at night made me feel safe. Hvar is beautiful and villa skansi made my trip extremely memorable! I'll definitely be back.

I have stayed in many hostels in the last few years all over the world and none compare to villa skansi in terms of atmosphere, cleanliness, location, staff, security and value! On arrival I was greeted by Lara with fresh local watermelon she was friendly and helpful with information about activities and facilities for both the hostel and hvar, I was even lucky enough to meet the owners Julia

Good atmosphere, calm location yet not too far from where ppl party, pub crawl every night, perfect to socialize They have troubles keeping track of which bed is free. I've seen a bunch of people having to wait for the staff to find available beds. But they make up for it in the end.
