    The place is amazingly located right in the city centre and you can even see the sea from the rooftop. The owner is very very nice and flexible and each traveller gets a big enough storage cupboard that even a big backpack will fit (with the added bonus you can lock it). I liked it there and Hvar so much that stayed for an extra day. Definitely hope to come back. Loves from cuba !

    We had a wonderful time at the Helvetia apartments, which is a short walk from the center of Hvar town. Rino was the best host and started our trip off with coffee and glasses of wine. Our apartment had a kitchenette, a balcony and table, and its own private bathroom. There is also large outdoor shared terrace. Highly recommend staying at either the Helvetia hostel or apartments and having a drink with Rino! He also gave great recommendations for food.

    Stay here! Rino was the best host during my stay in this hostel. He met me on the street because it’s not easy to find if you’re coming for the first time. He told me the private room was actually an apartment about ten minutes walking from the hostel — which is perfect for a couple or group of friends. Once he checked me in, he found some young men to help me with my bags and hosted a welcome party for us! The wine was flowing and cherry liquor and wonderful meat + cheese tray. Best host ever.

    This is easily the best hostel in Hvar. Rino is the man and treats everyone like family. I went to his house to hang out with him and drank the best wine in Croatia. We has access to the best wines in Croatia, and we had an experience I will never forget. You need to come here.

    Excellent stay! The owner is super present and attentive. He was key to facilitate our stay! He knows everyone and everything there is to know about the island, and is eager to share the knowledge to make our stay the best! The hostel is very small and homy, not very modern but everything works excellent and you can tell that the owner and his wife do a great work keeping it clean. Lastly, the view of the terrace is a unique asset of the hostel that makes every meal better.

    Rino is a great host. The hostel is in a perfect location right in the heart of the city. Everything is very clean and the terraces upstairs are great for chilling and enjoying a beer in the afternoon. Would recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Hvar

    Rino was an amazing host. He was super helpful and friendly - even got us a room just for ourselves, even though we booked the dorms. The location is perfect, right in the heart of the old town. There's a rooftop perfect for an evening chill and dinner with a view over the port. Hopefully we'll return to Hvar and be able to book this hostel again!
