This is a bit of a strange one. There is a fairly new building with reception, the dining room, and a bunch of the rooms, and those all seemed pretty nice. Then, around the side and back, there are separate buildings with the dorm/shared washroom rooms. Those are older and dirtier and don't have lockers for your belongings (that is where we stayed, I don't know whether the newer rooms have lockers or if that's a thing for the whole hostel). Definitely a fair bit sketchier than we expected.

Terrible WiFi, staff weren't that happy to helping, breakfast was awful, loud music till 4am, rooms had 1 powerpoint and disgustingly hot


Our stay was fine a little bit far from the city center. Toilets were not very clean. Breakfast was ok! Staff was nice.


There is a good atmosphere in this youth hostel, it's not close to the old center but really close to the beach.

This hostel is right on the water in a beautiful spot but also a 45 minute walk to the old town. Depends what you are looking for. Overall good basic hostel!


Really friendly and helpful hostel. When I forgot my passport and travelled 2 hours south, one staff member, Ivica, went out his way to pick it up at the local police station and sent it down on the same day. Highly recommendable.


We loved all the staff and the atmosphere was great. Although the showers need to be attached to the wall.

We were in 4 people and got a room with shared bathroom. Although the staff were nice, we got a terribly old and poorly maintained room: The mosquito protection in our window was torn and the heater was all rusty.
