Property Description

Since our doors opened in 2011 our Monkey hostels have been rated top hostels in Zadar and we are not even in the old town! We are also now offering our guest something new from 2019 - Breakfast included! How is this all possible?

The Monkey Troop Hostels are foreign owned and have a service reputation that is second to none in the Croatian hostel industry. When you step into our Mellow Monkey courtyard to when you exit our doors, our aim is to make this your 'home away from home'. The Mellow offers what old town accommodation cannot; tons of common space, decked garden with mini pool and sun loungers, sun terrace & BBQ, lounge facilities, movie projector and bean bags and a basement bar offering awesome smoothies and beverages.

We are located in a charming community of Zadar 20-25 minute walk outside of the city walls. Some of the best daytime bars, cliff jumping and waterfront locations our city has to offer are all on our doorstep. We want you to understand our location before you book with us; along with our services and facilities, we expect the majority of our guests to love being near the bus station and waterfront rather than in the old town which is easily accessible. Our safe neighborhood of Arbanasi is ideally situated minutes away from the main bus station, the scenic Kolovare promenade and swimming areas are also minutes away; nothing Zadar has to offer is out of the Mellow's reach. Please keep this in mind before booking.

On top of everything the Mellow Monkey now offers a continental breakfast so our guest now only really have to worry about food in the evening. We also offer clean bathrooms and hot water showers with comfortable double mattress beds. We are a secure hostel with door coded entrance to our private courtyard and reception offers tours to the National Parks and Islands along with laundry service and other affordable facilities and meal nights. We offer free guests computers with free access to WIFI in every corner of our hostel.

* We are not in the Old Town; we are able to offer you many of the facilities noted above for this very reason.
* We have a basement bar that can get noisy at times but this is well regulated by us.
* Croatian government tourist tax (8 Kuna per person per night) is not included in your price and applies to everyone on arrival at the hostel.

We are definitely a hostel that offers fun and excitement as well as mellow'd relaxation, come see for yourselves......

    Good hostel near Zadar (not in the city center), but very close to the bus terminal. The walk into town along the coast is scenic. My only complaint was the hot water in the shower runs out pretty quick. After 2 people shower you have to wait a while for it to get hot again. But one of the other showers would usually be hot. So just have to check. Having the kitchen is nice. Not many food choices nearby so cooking in the kitchen helps.

    Great little hostel with cool vibe and cool people. Good location right next to the beach, 8 mins from the bus station, and only a 20 min walk to the old town! Very clean, great rooms, slightly small so a little cramped. Small kitchen is hard to fit more than 2 people in. Not all beds have sockets by them so difficult to charge phone a night. Fun organized activities every night, and great for solo travellers to meet people! Such a great hostel - probably the best in Zadar.

    Quite a good hostel. Just a shame the bar closed at 12 so we all had to go to bed early as there is no night life in zadar

Things to Note

City tax (7kn per person per night) is not included and must be payed on top!

The Drunken Monkey Hostel has an age restriction of 18+.

Due to high bank rates it is in your best interest to settle your balance owed in cash. Should you have to use your credit card for payment a 5% charge will be added to your total.

During our season in Dalmatia, especially festival time, most Croatian hostels usually have a young vibrant crowd, who produce fun and noise for which we try to maintain the best we can. Our reviews tell you we are normally pretty good at this. But you must be of the understanding, that this is part of Drunken Monkey Hostel life in and around our operating months.

Our reception is open during the hours of 8.30 am - 10.30 pm. Arrival outside of these times requires an e mail directly to the hostel through our webpage. Please contact us for more information.

Guest reminder: We are not a hotel and we do not offer red carpet service, however big hearts and smiles are here in abundance. Please, If you have never stayed in a hostel, do your research so you know what to expect.

We are not in the Old Town!!. We are 20 minute walk away in a glorious part of Zadar . The hostel is extremely close to the bus station and the waterfront.
