Brilliant hostel with sea view from roof terrace and bar. The owners and staff are extremely helpful and there's always a great atmosphere.

This hostel was one of the highlights during my two week trip to Croatia. The staff is really fun, the location is convenient and the social atmosphere is ideal for meeting new people. I might have to return to this hostel at some point in the future!

Loved this hostel! Had a really great atmosphere - everyone we met there was very friendly! Only a 5-10 minute walk to the centre and I would definitely recommend the free pub crawl that runs every night :) Definitely one of the best places we stayed on our trip

Amazing hoste. I have been travelling three months and this was by far the best atmosphere a hostel could ever offer. It's very social and they really engage everyone with their free pub crawl. Met loads of great people and wish I could have stayed longer! Also has an amazing view from the patio.

It was amazing, the people who worked there were so friendly and we had the best time ever, we ended up extending our stay because we were having so much fun - great place to meet young people!

Search no more! You've just found the best hostel in all of Hvar! Great atmosphere and staff! Common areas are awesome, rooms and facilities are clean, and the view from the terrace are great! Short walk from the dock and into town. You can't get better value for your money in Hvar. Staying here felt more like a resort than staying at a hostel!

Great upscale hostel but the rooms were tiny and so were the lockers.

Avoid staying in the dorms downstairs. Noisy with gobby teenagers that cant handle their beer. Turning lights on at 5am because they cant find their shoe.. I think we got unlucky.

One of the better hostels I've ever stayed in. Very clean, excellent location, and very friendly staff. Good social scene and pub crawl at night while also being relatively quiet and calm during the day.

This hostel has the best party atmosphere, from the minute you arrive you are looked after and made to feel welcome and part of the group, the bar crawl is the best I've been on in with such a good atmosphere and loads of free shots. The hostel itself is immaculate, clean and the outdoor kitchen and terrace are excellent places to relax and soak up the atmosphere. Would recommend this hostel to anyone and can't wait to go back next summer!

Not only was the view and setting of the villa amazing but the hospitality from all the staff was brilliant! Thanks to Tom and Tom for showing us several fantastic nights out - a great addition to the Villa Skansi staff...Definetely a place we'd like to return to...

My stay at Villa Skansi was wonderful, from the moment I arrived the staff were very friendly and helpful and did everything they could to make my stay a pleasant one. The rooms were very clean and very comfortable, the communal kitchen was well supplied and also very clean. The terrace provided a lovely place to relax and take in the spectacular views of the Adriatic. The villa runs a free bar crawl for guests to take part in with free shots and a good atmosphere it's one not to miss.

It was coming to the end of the season so was very quiet, they packed up most of our 10 bed dorm while we we were there so we thought it was neccesary to leave as the place was dying so rapidly in front of us.

The nicest hostel i've stayed in europe; modern, clean with a great party & communal vibe taking all the guests out at night. Spacious, clean rooms, some even boasting balconies/terraces with plenty of shower/toilet facilities. Great kitchen facilities as well as excellent common areas on their fantastic terraces with ocean views. Staff were friendly, knowledgeable and always willing to help out. Close to two supermarkets,great restaurants and swimming spots.Fantastic booze cruise too!

the place is great, location quite convenient, though cleaning crew could do more. what i didn't like was the attitude. the staff couldn't even provide decent instruction on how to find the place and i ended up wondering with luggage for an extra hour around their residential area. staff is polite and nice, but you're on your own on figuring your way around hvar and reaching mainland. i've tried a few times and didn't receive any help outside basic info on the hostel itself.

Nice hostel, it had a good balance between a fun hostel with activities and one that you could sleep quietly. The staff was really nice!
