    Location is awesome, a vegan restaurant next door and the ocean just over the street, close to everything. The staff is super friendly and helpful, wasn’t hard to feel like home here. Would definitely live here again when ever I’m back in Zadar.

    Amazing hostel!!! Staff were amazing and incredibly welcoming, even giving us a brief tour and recommendations of nearby places to visit, room was spacious and cleaned daily! Location is perfect, right in the middle of old town with everything you could need only a 10 minute walk away at max! Only problem was that our room mates weren’t the best but not the fault of the hostel at all! Overall a 100/10, incredible place to stay, wonderful staff and perfect location! I’d recommend it to anybody and if y

    Clean and comfortable hostel with extremely welcoming and friendly staff! We stayed in a mixed 4 bed dorm which has spacious lockers to store your belongings, plugs next to each bed and a shared bathroom on the floor. The hostel is in the perfect location right in the heart of Zadar but nestled away on a quieter street to avoid a lot of the noise in an evening. Google maps sent us the wrong way but look for ‘The Botanist’ restaurant and the hostel is next to that.

    This hostel is good, it’s incredibly clean and has air con in the rooms which is great! It doesn’t have too much social activity as they don’t offer events for people to gather/meet however it’s great regardless. In a quiet part of downtown so you’ll be able to get good sleep!

    Stunning hostel located right in the old town! Rooms and bathrooms are gorgeous, like a little hotel. Not really anywhere to socialise so it is definitely more of a hotel vibe but it was a lovely stay. And staff were very kind and helpful. Hard to find on google maps but look for the restaurant “the botanist” on the main strip and it is directly behind that.
