Welcome to Riva Hostel, an extension of one of the top-rated hostels in Croatia!

Featuring 9 x Seaview rooms -- facing the Adriatic Sea and fishing boats, 20m away from your window!

Located in the heart of Pula's center and at the famous Pula waterfront (Riva), we are steps away from the historic Forum and Kandlerova Street, which boasts some of the most impressive Roman architecture in Croatia, as well as a variety of cafes, bars, and shops.

Pula's breathtaking Amphitheatre ('Arena') is a mere five-minute walk from Riva Hostel, and all of Pula's main attractions are within walking distance.

Tucked inside a quiet Austro-Hungarian courtyard building, our comfy space consists of many large and spacious sleeping rooms with sea views, a large rooftop terrace with lounge chairs and a bar - great meeting point for our guests!

In addition, we offer hi-speed WIFI throughout the property.

Each room in our hostel has tall ceilings, which makes sleeping with more people in the room comfortable!

Each room has its own A/C unit.

Some rooms have their own newly renovated bathrooms, with spacious shower stalls inside the room, while the rest of the hostel uses a common shower area.

In all, there are 15 toilets and 11 showers available at any time!

All kitchen appliances and utensils are available for cooking and preparing anything from simple meals to large-scale lunches and dinners for group bookings.

Our staff is energetic and highly dedicated to the needs of each and every guest! It is our firm belief that going this extra mile is what makes a hostel experience above average, and takes at least some of the stress out of traveling and spending time in a foreign country.

We want you to feel at home in our hostel.

We are all more than happy to share our experiences, recommend travel ideas, provide useful information, and help you clarify and plan the remainder of your travels.

English, Spanish, and Croatian/Bosnian/Serbian are spoken here. View House Rules

    We had a great stay! The owner and other staff members were nice and very helpful. The location was perfect and it was easy to meet other travellers at the common areas :)

    Nice vibe and good location for outlook festival but not great. But overall a nice hostel especially to stay with some friends. I only stayed one night so I can’t say much more. It’s a cool setup though with a bar and terrace in the middle. Beds were comfy and all was clean

    Had an amazing stay here. The terrace is super good for meeting new people and it has a sick atmosphere. The only downside is if you don't get a sea view room then you can hear loud music from the terrace until quite late

    PROS: A great place to stay in the heart of Pula. It is convenient to Arena, restaurants, the marina, and attractions. I stayed during October, so it was a very relaxed environment. My room and locker key was waiting on the desk for me. The guests were great and the setup is fantastic to meet new people and engage with other guests. CONS: The keys stick and I was locked outside for a while during the night when I went outside. It finally opened the lock after several minutes.

    Waited for an hour to check in with no sign of the staff. The place wasn't very clean and they didn't give you a sheet for the mattress. Also, the air conditioning was always on far too high, and they only give you a sheet to sleep with! It was freezing! Really squeeky beds and metal clunky lockers. Other than that a perfectly adequate hostel. Good location.

    The place was clean and nice. If you are worried about security of belongings, this might not be the place for you. The lockers are small in the room. You have to rely on room mates to lock the door with physical keys. I had a snafu with my stuff when the cleaning lady took all of my stuff that was on bed, as if it didn't seem like I was occuping it. I was able to get it back, though it sucked. The patio where people party is above the rooms and given the building type you can hear the music.

    Quite an old hostel which could do with some new features and a nice freshen up. Not an uncomfortable stay, however not that enjoyable. Huge amounts of noise can be heard from the terrace as the rooms are so close to it. The no noise rule after 11pm is definitely not enforced. Don’t think I would stay again.
