The hostel is located near the center,so perfect with the car. is next to the beach and good location. the staff is okay, but not friendly as expected


Friendly staff and clean room. However showers were cold, wifi didn't reach our room and the breakfast was cheap only bread (not even toast) and gross jam. For the price I expected phasilities but there were non. Location was fine, but a 40 min walk (although it was easy) walk or 10 kuna bus ride to town. Enjoy!

Great place to stay! Excellent breakfast!


Probably one of the best hostels I've ever visited! Nice location, cool staff, clean rooms and delicious breakfast for a very fair price! It made my stay in Zadar much more enjoyable, looking forward to coming back one day!

Hostel is really far away from the centre, tried to walk but gave up after 30 min and got food. I guess you really need the bus if staying here. No air con. The also charge you to become members of Hosteling International which is something they don't advertise too well. Our 4 bed dorm was in an outhouse with a few other dorms. 1 plug in the room between 4 people. 1 toilet and shower for males in the entire outhouse which isn't enough really. Wouldn't recommend.


Hostel with nice staff, located near the sea but not so close to the old town of Zadar, however there's a direct bus.


I initially was impressed with the facilities and great outdoor space. The rooms are clean and the staff is kind. However please beware that some of the ladders are not attached to the bunk beds. I stepped down on one of the ladders and wound up falling and getting sent to the hospital with a concussion and popped ligament in my arm. I was traveling alone and the experience was very frustrating because it could have been prevented if more safety had been taken by the hostel.


All of the lockers for luggage had broken locks. No kitchen or access to a kettle.


Only stayed one night but there was a huge group of high school students staying there which meant as a mid-20 year old backpacker the vibe wasn't really for me. Pretty old, musky smelling dorm room with no ventilation or fans in the summer heat. Probably wouldn't return despite lovely staff at reception.


Staff were extremely informative and helpful. The atmosphere was more like a school camp than a hostel. But the bar is very reasonably priced. The room we were given was nothing like the photos, was a lot older and smelt like my grandmas sock draw. Cost was a bit high for what you get.


A great, friendly hostel - clean and with all necessary utilities. The staff were fantastic - went out of their way to help and very approachable. The downsides were that lots of simple things - air conditioning, towels etc. weren't included and you had to pay extra - felt a bit like Ryanair! Also, the free Breakfast was terrible - a bit of stale bread and some orange slices. However, if you need somewhere clean and safe not far from the Old Town, this was perfect.
