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.

    Had a great stay over a few days in this chilled and friendly hostel. All the staff were friendly and helpful, nice atmosphere, facilities as stated. They also let me store my bike for a few days after I checked out. Hostel is well located, have already booked to go back!

    The owner is the coolest owner ever, and she has the sweetest dog (Tia!!) to match. Lots of great times had here with a nice and relaxed community vibe. Just be prepared for the stairs to get to the place. For those that can manage it, you're rewarded with the best hostel view in town from the balcony facing Old Town. 10/10.

    the beds are confortable and its a good place to meet new pple, only two bathrooms for the hostel which can be a challenge. i rather to take baths at night to avoid waiting in the morning v long. the kitchen is little so probably youll need to wait a bit to cook your meals.

    The rooms are quite minimalistic (not a complaint) and decently spaced. The number of washrooms is a little low for the number of people staying. Apart from these two, the hostel experience was great. The owner and Tia (her dog) have been super friendly and informative. The kitchen was great with basic supplies. It has a great view from the balcony. The best of it all was the atmosphere in the dorm. I have met two amazing persons who are super dear to me now. Recommended!

    Very traumatic. As a solo 20year old female backpacker I walked here from the ferry terminal at 10pm, the route to it is a dark shut off closed market with no street lights then you walk to the abandoned car park in front of the hostel, there is graffiti on the walls and there were men hanging around around in the dark next to the hostel. When I got into the hostel I had to walk up lots of flights of stairs in the pitch black and felt like anyone could have opened their door and kidnapped me.
