Property Description

Dear guests:

We kindly ask that you check your e-mail after booking, as we will be reaching out with an inquiry for your arrival time. This is important, as we do not offer a 24-hour reception out of season (1.10 - 1.4) . Our afternoon receptionist is at the hostel until midnight (24:00).

*** Bookings after September 10 *** ALL check-ins are on an Appointment-only basis Please check your e-mail and kindly reply with an approximate time of arrival, or check-in will not be available at the time of your choosing. We cannot check anyone in after midnight, even in the event of transportation delays. Thank you for understanding.

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

    I was the only one staying at the hostel that night so Romano kindly upgraded me to a private double with an en-suite bathroom. He was very friendly and made me feel welcomed and at home. The hostel is in a great location near the downtown. In the summer I’m sure this place is bumping with the patio bar! I would come back for sure!

    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.

    A perfect location for what we needed (a boys and girls futsal tour). The owner is understanding and relaxed, while passionate about what he does. The beds were surprisingly comfy, and the terrace a great place to socialise. Location-wise, hard to beat, close to the marina and within 10-minutes of the centre of town. One improvement I would suggest is the showers. Some did not drain effectively while showering, limiting the time to do so to 2 minutes.

    Very Good

    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.

    I had to rate the hostel pretty poorly, because my experience was pretty bad. That being said this was during november, and I assume things might have been different over the summer. I reserved a room in the morning, and arrived in pula around 6pm. I rang the doorbell, no response. I sent an email, no response. Someone was leaving the address while I was waiting outside, so I entered to wait indoors. There was no one at the desk, and no point of contact. I wound up staying elsewhere.
