Could not of asked for a better place to stay. Everyone was all so friendly, the hostel itself was clean 24/7 and we felt very safe. Staff knew the best places to eat, go out, and where to take day trips, very helpful if only there for a short period of time. Definitely recommend to anyone of any size group or any age, will definitely be returning!

My friend and I only booked this hostel for one night originally, but within 10 minutes of arriving we fell in love with the staff, atmosphere, and layout of the hostel. We extended our stay for 4 more nights! We love this hostel!! Everyone should stay at Villa Skansi!! Ps: there is a free pub crawl each night for all the guests. This is the BEST way to meet people and experience Hvar night life. STAY HERE!! :)

Good clean hostel for the young looking for a social party scene. The staff here at this hostel are amazing. They are super friendly and helpful and keep the whole hostel clean and running smoothly despite being constantly busy. The hostel runs a free pub crawl each night that gets the whole group mingling and down to a couple of bars in the old town area. Most of the guests here are 18-26. As far as hostels go, they have all the amenities, including a large shared kitchen and fast wifi.

Great place with an awesome view. The free pub crawl every night is really fun and you meet people easily! Security however is very poor, anyone can just walk in from the street and most rooms are always open. There are small lockers for valuables but they don't fit bags!

Hi, We completely disagree with your opinion that security is poor. Because no one without wristband can enter the hostel, we in the reception and our security guard are always strictly taking care that no one enters the hostel. Anyway, thank you for staying with us

Many people claim that certain hostels are the "best they've ever stayed" but Villa Skansi was truly the greatest experience I've had so far. The staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming. The facilities are as good as it gets and the patios provide an unparalleled atmosphere. The free pub crawl is a lot of fun and a great way to start your night. The only issue I had was that you could not make noise at the hostel after 10:00PM but other than that Villa Skansi was outstanding.

Incredible atmosphere, clean, safe and the staff is more than willing to help in whatever way they can. Organized pub crawls make it easy to meet a ton of people and have great nights out in Hvar, definitely want to go back!!

My second time staying at Villa Skansi, and again we had such an amazing week. You shouldn't stay anywhere else in Hvar!! Looking forward to returning for a third time this summer.

Villa Skansi was by far the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Our group arrived in Hvar town quite late and on arrival we were greeted with cake and a cocktail for us, so that we had some food and were ready to go into town. This welcoming and relaxed vibe continued throughout our stay. Our room was cleaned everyday and the bathrooms were sparkling and new. The outdoor space and kitchen was a great place to socialize with other travelers, as well as the daily bar crawl. Don't hesitate to go here!

Its a really nice hostel in a great location. I particularly liked the outdoor terrace area, its a good social space! They do a pub crawl most nights which is okay not great. The rooms are clean and the showers are amazing!! The staff are nice but sometimes its like being back at school.

Good hostel, amazingly clean and friendly and helpful staff. Good location in Hvar and a great place to make friends if you're travelling alone. Only downside is that they are very strict on noise and after 10 you can't make a sound. I know Croatian law states that they can't make noise but we found the constant 'ssshhh'ing a bit excessive.

We stayed here on our last night out of four on Hvar and it was fantastic. The atmosphere was all that we were promised it would be. If you are on your own or in a group this is a great place to stay if you enjoy socialising and meeting new people! The staff were friendly and helpful and the pub crawl was a great way to get to know everyone! Definitely recommend this place! And would stay again.

Awesome hostel!!!! Always lots of people, the cuisine outside is a nice place to meet people! Very well situated and excellent reception (with water melon, cake an a map to show the good spots to go and the ones to stay away from)

A great hostel with beautiful terraces overlooking the sea! It would be easy for a hostel of this size to lose sight of the details, but the staff works very hard to make sure it is spotless and to make you feel at home. Also loved the big outdoor kitchen and all the room to spread out. I could have lounged on that terrace for another week with just a book and a coctail!
