A really nice hostel right at the beach!


They wanted to keep our passports at the check-in, and that is completely unacceptable to me, fortunately they agreed on taking copies. The outlets were limited and the only wifi spot was located by the reception. Other than that, our stay was good. We really enjoyed the hostel beach.


Weird summer camp feel to it.. Lots of little kids and a group of German high schoolers with chaperones? Only one outlet in the whole dorm room and one overhead light, no individual lamps. Only one lock between you and the outside world, and ours was loose. Bathrooms absolutely disgusting- reminded me of a frat house. Wet, dirty floors, toilet paper everywhere, small toilet stalls- only one toilet for girls and one for guys for four whole suites. And only ONE shower with little hot water.


Heel mooi hostel, met een super locatie aan de adriatische zee. Van alles te doen, dichtbij pula, maar wel vooral een bestemming om te chillen, bijna geen nachtleven. Wel is het te duur voor alleen een dorm.


Youth Hostel Pula was a dissapointment. Really slowworking reception, took 25 minutes to check out. No kitchen - and it is not allowed to wash your clothes in the sink. Only one shower and toilet for all the women in our block. It is nice that it is located on a beach, but there are a other beaches in the area that a lot more attractive. Would recommend you to stay at a hostel in the city center with a better social atmosphere and from there take the bus to better beaches.

Very nice hostel but reception closes at 23.00 which can be a problem if you arrive late


The hostel is located in a fantastic place, despite being far away from the center of the town, is just in front of the beach what is an amazing feeling. I do think this is one, if not the only, good thing about the hostel. The first impression is that outside, near the reception it smells like sewer, what it not very pleasant, the reception was always full of people, so everytime I went there I had to wait. There's only one shower for 24 people and the water wasn't hot.

Amazing location but its essentially just a summer camp like hostel


We had a brilliant 2 nights here, would rather have had private(very busy) but sharing an 8 bed dorm was an experience, not to be repeated.


Very basic, like being on a school camp. But that is okay because it was right on the beach which is exactly what we wanted. Wifi near reception works well. Bar/cafe is good. Extra activities they offer are also awesome.
