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.

    I loved my stay at this backpacker's hostel. Nadia and Santiago are super star hosts. Very friendly, welcoming and accepting of people. They go out of their way to make you feel at home. I had a great time despite being between 20-25 years older than the average guest there. Many of the other guests commented that this hostel was very unique in terms of friendliness. I was very sad to leave. Clean, bright, colourful and good value. Highly recommended.

    Very lovely and cute place, with great living room and nice balconies. Just outside the centre, which is great if you need a good sleep;) Staff was very helpful and friendly. Also, don't know if it was a coincidence, but in my room there were only girls which was nice ( ahhha #LessSnorrers) Would definitely recommend this hostel!

    The hostel is located very conveniently and the atmosphere is really pleasant, kind of homey. The only downside might be that there’s no elevator so you have to walk up 4/5 flights of stairs.

    Best hostel in Zadar. It is a little bit outside old town but totally worth it to stay. Outside kitchen and a really nice rooftop 🥰

    Good location really close to the main area, welcoming staff and really helpful. Big common area and good atmosphere. Beds were quite comfy just a little noisy Door into main apartment building was open all the time which was strange and actual hostel door was open throughout the day Would recommend for a stay in split

    solo female travelers that may be arriving to the hostel after dark: The hostel is next to an abandoned parking lot at the top floor of an old building and is very dark in the stairs. It looks super sketchy but it is not as sketchy as it looks. With that being said the hostel is a nice place to stay so don’t let it turn you away. I had a good stay, it is a small place for the number of people there and there’s only two showers. Staff is nice & helpful. Quick 6 min walk to Old Town. Thanks!

    Cosy hostel but can be a bit cramped in the 10 person dorm. View from the balcony is great and it's a nice place to chill.
