    I ended up extending my stay here because I loved the people who work here and I love the location. It's set in old Town steps from the sea and there are two buildings you can book in. I was on the top floor and it had privacy with atmosphere so you could still hear the fun street sounds within the comfort of your room. I'll be back for sure!

    Wow, second best hostel I have ever been in worldwide in over 15 years of traveling on/off. It is more like a hotel, at the best location at the beach. The pillows are amazing, the mattresses are amazing and wide, the furniture is well chosen, also the bunk beds are stable and you don't have the feeling that the person on top is crashing down on you. The cleanliness is also extraordinary and the bathrooms contain designer furniture and even rain shower heads. The location is really fabulous!

    Great hotel/hostel with good facilities and clean areas. Kitchen was maybe a little small during the busy times but it worked well enough. The owner was always friendly and offered help with everything that he could. Not a lot of atmosphere in this hostel but still met some excellent people anyway!

    Very comfy bed and good pillow. Very close to the boardwalk and we just jumped into the sea from there. The beach is 20mins walk away. Very close to the old town centre. Bus station is 40min walk away!

    Great location on the small streets in the middle of Zadar. 2 minute walk to the promenade along the water. Friendly receptionist and owner. Good bathroom and kitchen as well. Only downside I guess is the kitchen is the only hangout area and not super atmospheric but overall I definitely recommend this place.

    Great location and staff but absolutely no social atmosphere during my stay. Would recommend for couples but not solo travelers.

    Not really any communal areas to hang out and meet people, which is a major reason I stay in hostels
