    Cannot rate this place highly enough. Firstly the staff are so kind and helpful, giving us loads of recommendations as soon as we walked in the door. We were immediately made to feel welcome. The beds were the comfiest we’ve slept in. The mattress and pillows were like memory foam which makes a huge difference. Showers were awesome and super clean bathrooms. Location is perfect, right in the heart of the old town. We would definitely stay here again if we revisit Zadar!

    I loved Hostel Elena so much that I extended my stay by another two nights! It was clean, quiet, and staff and the owner were extremely helpful. They made sure we were taken care of and were considerate of all of the details that go into a backpacking trip through the balkans. I recommend this hostel to anyone going to Zadar :)

    I have stayed in many hostels, this one definitely has the comfiest beds (I have never known of a hostel that invested in orthopedic beds). In all areas you can really see how the owner puts an effort and really cares about his guests and their feedback. All facilities are very clean, especially the showers. The staff are very lovely and helpful. The location is perfect, close to the center. I was told they are planning to expand the common room/kitchen area so will be even better socially.

    I have stayed in many hostels all over the world, and this is easily the best service I have ever received! In the beginning the owner made sure I knew everything about the area and gave me many suggestions. I did not have an adapter for the outlet so he brought one from his house the next day! And he let me keep it! Very nice people!!

    Very clean hostel in the Old Town of Zadar. It was easy to walk to everything and the hostel staff were very, very welcoming! I stayed in a private dorm and there was a small communal area. Would stay at hostel again when next in Zadar.

    It's an okay hostel. The location is perfect and the staff is very nice and helpful. However, it's pretty basic and there is no common room so hard to meet new people. The kitchen is small so if it's full you gotta wait. 15 min walk from the bus to the airport.

    Maybe I was just unlucky but I arrived at 9 am and had to wait over 3 hours for someone to do my check-in (called the number indicated in reception, was told to wait), people who had to check-out by themselves had left the keys and money for their night (how honest of them to pay... and of me to leave it)! There is no common room, just a small kitchen and a couch by the reception desk so people don't really communicate. Besides all that the rooms & bathrooms are clean and pretty nice.
