Property Description

Backpackers fairytale exists already for 10 years. It's situated in a perfect spot, just 3 minutes from the 1700 year old Dioclation palace, near all the bars and restaurants, but it's still in a nice and quiet neighborhood. Place is clean and colorful with a nice, big common area where u can chill listening to an old record on a gramophone while enjoying one of the best views in the city. From our balconies you can see the whole city, the bell tower of St. Duje, port, cute park Sustipan and our amazing hill Marjan so u can enjoy this view from dawn to dusk.
My name is Antea and I opened the hostel because I wanted to travel the world, so I understand your needs and I will always try to help you and to make you feel like you are at home, so don't forget to ask whatever you need. We have a dog, her name is Tia and she is super nice and makes everyone thinking about their pets at home. We are always active, so if you like outdoor activity (slacklining, rock climbing, DWS, stand up paddle, trekking) maybe you are lucky and we are going to do something when you are with us, if we do you are more then welcome to join us.

We are located 10 min from the ferry, bus and train station.
Parking is free on the street which is also closest u can come to the town with a car for free and there is a big parking lot that u can use for 7 kn per hour.

    Only stayed for one night but very enjoyable! Standard rooms but lovely people. Great location only issue is it was quite hard to find as we got there late at night and there isn’t any visible signs

    Grat location, just outside the main central area. only thing i would point out is that there were no lights up the stairs in the building and the area infront of the build was really dark as i reached at night. Apart from that, the hostel's common space is really cozy and also has small balcony. Host was very kind and helpful during the stay :)

    The hostel is like on the 9th floor!! There are people staying there for a long period of time who did seem like they ruled the roost. The doors are NEVER locked, the front door or bedroom doors, luckily there are lockers. The shower stays warm for 5 minutes before its freezing cold, each time i used it! Location was good!

    Didn’t sleep there my last night, missed the ferry and came back to my room closed for bed bugs and my stuff moved the night before and left UNLOCKED ALL NIGHT. Passport money, all my stuff just moved and free to anyone. They said “we didn’t have a number to call you”. Sooo glad I didn’t stay the second night!

    Location isn’t the best. Arrived and host was ok. Never got a “tour” of the place… found washrooms by opening random doors and asking other guests. Never got a towel … maybe they don’t issue towels there but I had on every other hostal I stayed. Bathrooms dirty, men’s shower drain clogged. And very tight spaces in bathroom, hard to sit down on the toilet comfortably as walls are right there. For same price I stayed on a much better place closer to center of old town (old backpackers hostel)

    The smell of the room was like rotten rat and I couldn’t sleep. The hostel in the six floor and it’s lookalike an apartment not a hostel. The bathroom was dirty and had mold . For the price doesn’t worth it .

    Cannot believe HW gives this a 2 when I gave 1 star in every category. • taxi driver nervous to drop us off because of the location • broken/dirty building and amenities • rude and difficult to deal with staff - no contact for weeks to try and fix booking, they cancelled my reservation without calling or emailing (that was fun!) • held ID hostage until cash payment We left early and went elsewhere.
