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.

    I really enjoyed my stay at the hostel. Everyone was extremely friendly. And the kitchen being outdoor is definitely a plus ! The hostel has a very laid back vibe, its a little far from the old town, but the walk from old town is beautiful at night. I would recommend to anyone who is in Zadar for a relaxed holiday. If you are in a rush to explore the city in 1/2 days, its probably a better idea to stay in the old town.

    This is a very sociable hostel with an awesome vibe. Very spacious kitchen and common area. Very clean and there is AC in the rooms. Only downside is the location is about a 30 minute walk from downtown, but I think it's definitely worth it.

    The atmosphere here was really fun, everyone felt very communal. The only security is the front gate, the individual rooms are very open but I still felt safe here. And it was a bit dirtier than other hostel but it wasn’t bad at all, I would definitely stay again!

    Overall great experience here! Pretty clean as far as hostels go. Bit of a random location, more difficult to access by public transportation than we thought, but within walking distance to groceries/bakery/some okay beaches & old town. The house itself was super secure and felt safe, but the so-called 'lockers' weren't big enough to hold anyone's things which was annoying. People were awesome--good environment. Staff was nice but not as helpful as we were hoping w/ recommendations.

    Solid place–great kitchen, nice open air lounge area and a very social atmosphere; the rooms are nice and cool but the lounge was quite hot since it was outdoors, minimal security for rooms beyond the front gate, though there are bins under the beds to store your stuff. Overall very nice!

    A little far from the city center on foot. It's a nice place and close to a few loc beaches. The breakfast is simple: bread, cheese slices, soft cheese, jam, butter, honey, cereal, and coffee.
