Property Description

Feel the friendly vibe at our Backpackers Home hostel and be a part of the comunity! :)

The hostel is known as a relaxed place with a huge communal area. Two shady terraces and a big outside kitchen are perfect for deep chilling, cooking together and meeting new people. If you're lucky Tiho will make you a barbecue : ).
Traveling alone or in a group you will feel like a part of our big worldwide family. Connecting guests and providing them the best stay that they can have is our main goal!

We have a Reception from 8:30 - 22:00 and are here to help. Free parking across the street (many spots available, but based on availability), and free WiFi. We offer bike rentals for 50 kuna a day.

The Backpackers Home Hostel is located in the Borik district, only a minute walk from the sea. We are a bit further from old town than some other hostels
: it is either a 25 min walk (1.8K), or a 10 minute walk (with the help of a 6 kuna rowboat ride). Within a radius of 20 meters of the hostel is a grocery store, bakery, bus stop and pharmacy. There are 4 public beaches nearby, from 5 and 15 minutes away. The highlight, the lively old town complex, is located on a peninsula, separated from the new town. A walk through the old town is like traveling back through time.

At The Backpackers Home we offer you rooms with new beds and mattresses and air conditioning, either in the room or in the adjoining one. There are two big terraces totaling about 60 m². All the bathrooms have been built within the past four years.

    Прекрасен хостел не много далеч от центъра на Задар. Много добре оборудвана кухня. Нямам забележки.

    The best place to stay at in Croatia for young people travelling on a budget. The rooms are tidy and air conditioned and the bathrooms are cleaner than the ones at my mom’s place at home. The entire histel just gives you a family vibe. Especially our roommates where amazing. After two nights we were basically like family. If you ever go to Zadar this is the place to stay at. And don’t forget to go upstairs onto tge terrace in the evening to join some drinking and someone playing the guitar.

    Great staff who go out of their way to help you with any thing- help arranging a tour, restaurant recommendations, bus info, etc. The outside kitchen was great for fixing meals and the hostel is clean. The location is about a 20 minute walk to Old Town but was never an issue for me.

    Great place to stay and would stay again. Staff was helpful and friendly, and provided many recommendations. Only downside is that it is a little far from the centre but would still recommend.

    I visited in the off-season (early April) so it was very quiet. The kitchen & common spaces are outside, which is probably really lovely in summer but wasn't ideal in spring when it was cold. But it was clean and comfortable. Located right next to a little market and bank with ATM, which was super convenient. It's a little farther from the old town than other options, but the walk is nice and the rowboat-ferry that takes you across the bay is fun and really quick.

    We spent a couple of nights here and it was relaxing and had a good atmosphere in the evenings. There were lots of areas to hangout in and the beds were comfortable.

    the beds are confortable but the arrangement of the dorms a little weird, to get to the room where i was staying i had to enter one first and then open a 2nd door. the rooms are clean but i think the kitchen could be a little more clean. is a very good place to meet new pple and the location is good.

    The hostel was by far less than we expected. We booked a 4 people dorm - to get to our room we had to cross a 6 people dorm and since we had no A/C in our room ( we had 37 degrees) the door to the 6 dorm room was always open. hostel is not located central at all, it‘s a 30 minutes walk to the old town.. when we arrived the stuff didn’t give us any information they placed our ID and Scans where everyone can see and take it.. also there where no keys in in the whole hostel so everyone could enter
