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.

    During my stay at backpackers fairytale I was delighted to be greeted by the most friendly group of people. Their dedication to provide the best holiday experience was clear from the beginning and continued through to the end. This was my first experience in a hostel and it couldn't have went any better. 10/10

    My time at Backpacker’s fairytale was wonderful! The location is a short walk (5 mins max) to the city centre in a quiet neighbourhood. The view from the terrace is great for breakfast! The only downside of my stay is that the advertised hostel tours weren’t running- I still managed to find things to do with people from the hostel, but it would have been nice to do stand up paddle board!

    Stayed as a first time solo traveller and enjoyed my time there. Staff were friendly, hostel is clean, plenty of bathrooms. The only thing I would say is that there isn’t much organisation in terms of nights out. Other than that, it was a good stay.

    Great hostel! It’s social and the staff is very kind. The space is kept clean, especially the floors! I felt at home! I met some incredible people who I spent each day of vacation with— I’d definitely stay again and record to anyone traveling solo!

    Loved it here! The common areas were great to socialise in, especially the balcony which had a great view! The staff were also extremely welcoming giving us lots of recommendations. However, the air con in the 4 bed room gave out a really bad smell making the whole room stink. I would avoid booking the 4 bed until it is fixed!

    Had a great time at this hostel, lots of cool friendly people to meet and not too far from all the things to do. The staff especially were very helpful and friendly.

    Firstly, the hostel is incredibly difficult to find with only a tiny sign out the front of a building mentioning backpackers fairytale. However, the hostel was very friendly and close knit (not a very large capacity threfore everyone speaks to each other). All in all, quite a good hostel and would recommend

    The prices are fair and the staff send good tips before you arrive. Unfortunately the facilities are actually a regular apartment (on the top floor of the regular building, with no elevator), so its all a bit tight and "improvised". Additionally, since there's not 24hr staff, I found the door wide open at least once in one day.

    It was fine for just a one night stay but did not enjoy it that much. The kitchen was a bit small, and the staff started cleaning and rushing us in the morning 30 min before checkout.
