This hostel is great! the ubication is not the best but you can still get to the city center walking in 15 minutes. The rooms have AC so that is perfect for the summer. The staff is great, they also promote drinking games at night and they all together go to pubcrawl. The wifi is not the best, but you are not there for using wifi. I recommend it.
The location was far from city centre but closeish to some nice beaches. Staff were good but it's definitely a party hostel so if you would rather relax and take it easy then not for you. The kitchen was good but no labels on the food so not guaranteed that someone won't take it.
We stayed at a private room for one night. The staff are so friendly and helpful. They organize pub crawl and gives you all the information you need about Hvar. There is a beautiful beach 15 mins away. They also encourage you to play games or get to know other guests at the hostel.
This hostel was fantastic. I traveled with one friend and we intended on spending only one night in Hvar but after sitting down with members of the staff and talking about Hvar, we knew we had to stay longer. This hostel is clean, safe and beautiful, with fantastic staff that want to help in every way possible. Johnny is amazing and takes you out to downtown Hvar every night, where he gets you free shots, drink deals and shows you all around Hvar. Book ahead of time to make sure you get a spot!
An incredible hostel, the terrace makes it so easy to meet other people before going out in the evening, and the bar crawl organised by the hostel is great too. When you arrive a member of staff gives you a map and talks through all the best things to do in Hvar, with all of the opening times and prices which was so helpful. The rooms are really clean and small climb up to the hostel is so worth it for the views. The best atmosphere, and I wouldn't wish to stay anywhere else!

20 min walk to everything, good social hostel. Great private rooms.
Awesome staff that are very friendly and helpful. The hostel is located just a short walk away from the main city center. If you are looking to a fun hostel to party at, this is the place for you.
We stayed in a private room over the road from the main hostel building, The room was very clean with good facilities, balcony and bathroom. The main hostel was lively during the evening but was fine with us being over the road. The hostel was quite far to walk to and from Hvar town and uphill all the way but was okay once we had found the place and done the walk a couple of times. The staff were very friendly and helpful
Had a great stay of 10 days here (extended an extra week). This hostel is really great. Amazing staff, great vibe at night, relaxed in the day, great food downstairs for cheap. Location wise it is close to a really nice relaxed beach and a market. Beds were comfy, kept very clean. I'll be back if I am in Hvar again someday. Cory
I absolutely loved this hostel, we stayed in the 6 bed dorm and had a balcony with a dope view of the water. The environment is awesome and it was super easy to meet people. It's a 10 minute walk from the center but if you take the stairs it's not so bad. They keep the rooms very clean which is also good. The only letdown was the wifi, which was really poor at times and you often have to switch between the different wifis they have. Other than that I would totally recommend!
The room was very nice apart from there was a lot of ants in the bathroom. There was also a lack of kitchen facilities so people had to wait to cook food. It was an enjoyable 2 nights stay with the exception of those two factors. Staff were very helpful and arranged a good night out.
Villa Marija is the perfect hostel to go to if you want meet other people! They have a great common area patio that everyone can hang out at and in the evening, the AWESOME staff (Johnny and Rodrigo) are super fun and friendly. They really make this place special. The typical evening involves hanging out on the patio until 10:30pm and then going with the big group down to the Kiva Bar in Hvar. The only downside is the location (up the hill) but overall, its worth the free exercise :)
About a 15 min walk from the main town but definitely worth it for the price. Rooms were a little cramped but were clean. We had a room which had an additional kitchen and 2 bathrooms which was perfect.
It was definetly one of the best hostels I ever stayed in. The patio was spacious and really amazing, there even were some tortoises. It is a perfect place to meet fellow travellers. The 8 bed dorm had a private kitchen and 2 bathrooms and everything was really clean. Security was excellent, for the rooms one needed a code and there were lockers as well, just don't forget to bring your own lock. Staff was nice, helpful and our kitchen was cleaned every day. I can definetly recommend this hostel!
Very social and easy to meet other travellers. Room was really nice and clean. The terrace and swimming pool are awesome! Easily one of the best hostels I've ever stayed and I'll come back for more!

Located about 10-15 minutes from the main square, the hostel is a little off the beaten path.. However, the facilities were nice and clean and the staff was very helpful. Shower was small but the beds were very comfortable. Worth the money spent.
We had a great time at marija. Dennis was super friendly and told us all the things to do on Hvar. We stayed on the lower floor which had its own kitchen and dining room. Very nice terrace with comfy seating. The hostel gave us some great wine one evening. We rented a boat through the hostel and drove it around all day for a cheap price. Overall I would definitely come back again. The room locks all have codes which means you don't need to worry about losing a key which is a nice bonus
Very good hostel, the only bad thing to say is about the location, it is located on a hill and about 10 minutes of city center.
A nightmare to get to and a bit far from everything but a great hostel
