    You cannot beat the hospitality of the staff! The location was a three minute walk from the sea organ and right next to the nightlife of the city. The beds were super comfy and the facilities were clean. Would definitely recommend staying here.

    I felt hostel Elena took time to explain useful information, very nice staff and it was not far from the bus station and close to everything! There is not much of a social room only kitchen common area but I was able to meet people there. The hostel was clean and had lockers with a key. I stayed in a building three floors, mixed 4 bed room with own bathroom, right next to the main reception building. Hazar has a great vibe yet but is not very big, everything is walkable.

    Stayed alone for 3 nights on the way from Zagreb. The staff were super friendly, and this was one of the nicest hostiles in terms of cleanliness and overall space I’ve been in. There isn’t a common room, but the rooms are large and we used it to meet one another and I had the good fortune of meeting a wonderful travel companion during my time in Zadar. It’s minimal but comfortable, and the bathroom in each floor is shared by max 6 people which kept it very clean and easy. Location on water.

    Excellent location! Extremely friendly staff who upon my arrival gave me a map and recommendations of what to do in Zadar, and who let me use the bathroom and kitchen facilities after checking out, as well as storing my luggage. Rooms are comfortable and clean, and there's a bathroom on each floor (so one for each 8-10 guests, not a bad ratio). The door to my room was never locked at any point - however, the hostel is located in a nice area, so this seemed like a trivial issue.

    I could not be happier that I chose Hostel Elena as my place to stay on the first visit to Zadar; booked for three nights but ended up staying a week. The rooms are comfortable with AC, everything is cleaned thoroughly every single day, and the staff is incredible. The owner was very personable, and everything that I needed was taken care of without a problem. The location is fabulous; the water is a minute away, the square is two minutes in the opposite direction. Would stay again!

    Sadly they don't have a common room so there's just the small space in the kitchen to get in touch with others. Beside that the staff was very friendly and welcoming. The bunks were steady and not squeaky and every bed has an own power socket. I missed some pouch next to it to store the stuff you are charging but that's just a tiny thing. The lockers are enormous so even my 105 L backpack fitted.

    Great location close to town and very clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Unfortunately placed directly beside a square where bands play in the evening / night so the rooms are VERY noisy whilst the bands are playing. Otherwise really good - and Zadar is an amazing place!

    The girl at the reception was really kind and helpful. The room was clean, with a good locker. I had some problem to find the entrance of the hostel, but it was my fault. The atmosphere wasn't exactly the best, but as you know it is due to the other hosts and not of the hostel itself.
