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

    The owner is very nice and gives great recommendations. The location cannot be any better. You are centrally located to all touristy sites. You cross the street and you can take a sunset cruise. Highly recommend!

    Great hostel. Romano and his family were wonderful hosts and very hospitable. The atmosphere of the hostel was relaxed and it matched the laid back and easy going vibe of Pula. I would recommend this hostel to anyone looking to relax and enjoy a picturesque town on the Croatian coast

    This was my first time travelling and my first time staying at a hostel so I wasn’t sure what to expect but my time here was amazing! I was made to feel welcome as soon as I arrived, and Romano was happy to give tips on where to go and places to eat but most importantly when I found myself sitting alone in a bar on my birthday because it was raining and my plans had been cancelled Romano welcomed to me the hostel bar for a drink for what ended up being one of my most memorable birthdays yet!!!

    Riva Hostel was a delight! The owner was extremely nice and offered helpful tips about exploring the city. On top of that, it's in a great location with a quick walk to most historical landmarks and good restaurants.

    Great Hostel! Location is right where you want it. Five minutes from the center and about 30 minutes on foot to the beach with the port right in front of the hostel. The is a kitchen and a rooftop terrace and the owner is very friendly and helpful if you need anything or have questions. Would definitely recommend staying here. It was relatively quiet now, but I can imagine that there would be a lot going on in the summer + the kitchen + bathrooms could get quite full for the number of people.

    This hostel was in a very good location, walking distance from all of the attractions in Pula (and some beaches!). The staff are lovely and go out of their way to help when they can. The rooms were basic but not much else is needed - they also have a bar. We were able to use the kitchen facilities which were quite good and they offer a pick up service from the airport (even though we didn't manage to do this). Overall I highly recommend this place!
