Property Description

Our hacienda-styled hostel & apartments are set in a peaceful surrounding community, close to waterfront cliffs and daytime bar. Located a pleasant walk from the old town we've shown that being outside the city walls, you can have the best of both worlds. We've adapted The Lazy Monkey this year towards the modern traveler, added studio apartments to our portfolio, now supplying holidaymakers, digital nomads, and remote workers with an alternative vibe. The hostel itself has huge social access with a front patio, garden and parking facilities, a commercial-sized kitchen, pool table, and comfortable undercover seating.
The lovely new one-bed and studio apartments are light and airy, they are located on their own floor separate from the hostel, with private terraces and apartment WIFI. They come equipped with personal kitchenettes, all with en-suite bathrooms, work desks, dining area, and wardrobe.

The Lazy Monkey still remains one of Hostelworld's top-rated Croatian hostels from 2015 to the current year and having the break over the last year we haven't faltered on our service to you.

We are globetrotting owners that each year builds a team of seasoned travelers and local staff that are the foundations of this fantastic homely hostel. The vibrant social areas have plenty of low-seated furniture and hammocks to chill and socialize. Hookah pipes are on offer and eclectic playlists for everyone's taste.

We have the Adriatic coastline on our doorstep, only 200 meters away to take a dip in the sea and just a few steps from the main bus station. We are a 25-minute stroll outside of the city walls, 15 minutes by local transport(bus), and only 5-10 minutes on one of our rental bikes. Renowned for being a place to kick back for a few days, The Lazy Monkey Property is your home away from home.

Every room is supplied with free WIFI, plug sockets, power bars, heaters, and air conditioning. We are very secure with the use of free lockers and a secure car park. We always try to keep the guests entertained, a calendar of activities includes a pool table(games), regular food nights, group BBQs, movies, and quiz nights. We guarantee you will find and chat with other like-minded travelers at our hostels.

We are also conscious of our environment, you will notice that most of our furniture is homemade and from recycled wood or pallets. We try to be as savvy as possible when it comes to recycling everything, including food waste (compost) and plastic bottles to the bottle bank. With our huge commercial-sized kitchen our tip, why not food share? It's a brilliant way to interact and meet new people or feel free to light up our BBQ.

On a final note, we really do want to make clear and understood to our guests, our location before you book with us. It's very hard to compete with the big commercial hostels, and when we receive the occasional bad location rating from those that have not read our bio properly, it makes us a little down. We hope, like us, that when you book you will enjoy staying close to the main bus station, which offers surprisingly good take-away options. This safe community neighborhood of ours offers a scenic Kolovare promenade, cliffs, bars, and the best sunsets in town. Nothing Zadar has to offer is out of Lazy Monkey's reach!

* We are not in the Old Town; we are close to the main bus station and able to offer you many of the facilities noted above for this very reason.
* We have a bar on site that can get noisy at times but this is regulated by and shut down by 12am.
* Croatian government tourist tax (10 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 lazy relaxation and home away from home vibes, come see for yourselves! View House Rules

    One of the absolute best hostels I’ve ever stayed in! Chris and Tiha were such fantastic hosts on, and off the clock. The vibe and atmosphere was perfect and the facilities were always immaculate. I was so sad that I didn’t spend more time in Zadar or at the lazy monkey hostel! I hope to come back one day!

    One of the best hostels I have stayed in. The hostel is a little far from the old town, near the bus stop, offering a chilled out vibe with an in-house bar (which has some really good cocktails) and good socializing opportunities for travellers

    One of the cleanest hostels I've been to, with a good location close to the bus station and many beautiful beaches. Chris and Tiha are absolutely amazing and make everyone feel at home, and it's a great place to meet other travellers. Would definitely recommend staying there!

    The ratings were high when I booked this and it makes sense! Stayed here for 3 night unfortunately couldn’t extend any further! It’s by far the most social of the hostel within Zadar, just book it!

    The Lazy Monkey is perfectly placed in Zadar for a lovely walk along to Old Town with the most beautiful sea views along the way. The staff are super friendly and offer great advice on things to do. You’ll never fall short of finding people who are looking to do exactly what you are if you’re a single traveller. The rooms and beds are exactly what you need for your trip and reasonably priced. They offer home-made dinners which are at en extra cost, but if you’re in the area - worth it!!!

    If we are ever in Zadar again we will come back! The burgers on Wednesday were just delicious. The beds were comfortable, staff were helpful and it's very close to the bus station for the airport or getting around.

    Wonderful hostel, mainly due to the atmosphere and the social vibe. Really a great place to meet interesting fellow travelers, chat, hang out and team up for activities. That alone more than makes up for the somewhat longer walk to the old town. Moreover, the neighbourhood is quiet and quite beautiful. A supermarket is right across the street and the beach a short walk away. Definite recommendation.

    Free coffee is great but for it to be 'instant' in this day and age is pretty lame. Charging for playing pool is a bit tight.
