Property Description

Feel the friendly vibe at our Backpackers Home hostel and be a part of the community!

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 7 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. There are two big terraces totaling about 60 m². All the bathrooms have been built within the past five years.

    Amazing hostel, lovely atmosphere - 100% will return. Only issue is no keys are given to the rooms so, anyone can walk into any room but there are lockers available.

    Great place! I would come back to Zadar just for this hostel honestly! Nice and clean rooms, the best common areas I’ve had in a hostel, as well as helpful staff. Only downside is that the walk into town is a bit far, however there are beaches nearby making up for it.

    Lovely place to stay, 40 min walk from the bus station which isn’t ideal with bags but other than that everything about it was perfect. Friendly, sociable and very asthetic.

    Super cute hostel with a great atmosphere. Staff were so lovely and really accommodating. Location isn't the best but I think the atmosphere makes up for it. Beds were super comfy.

    Awesome place, a great common space that isn't blasting music like other places - just a nice outdoor area where everyone gathered long into the night. The kitchen is big and stocked with utensils too. Very close to some beaches and nice restaurants. Overall a really good hostel that you should 100% stay in!

    When we arrived they didn’t have our beds made. They didn’t even know which beds would be ours. They sent us to a room where there was only one bed available (we were two guests), and as they didn’t know if the beds were available, they had to ask a guest if he knew whether the guest had left or not. Everything seemed really unprofessional and untrustworthy.
