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 it's current 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, and movies 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!

SEVERAL ITEMS TO NOTE:
* 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

    Great hostel, we really enjoyed our stay here. The staff are all so friendly, as are all the other guests, it’s really clean and the bar does great beer, cocktails and iced coffee. The location is great for the beaches, being only 5 minutes to a small local one and 10/15 to bigger ones with bars. It’s about 30 mins walk along the coast into the old town or 20ish walking through the city. 10/10 all round

    Great hostel! Lovely staff and very clean. It's about 10-15 mins walk from the coach station on a quiet road, and there's a supermarket 2 mins walk away. Would stay again!

    10/10! Really nice place. Only 8 minutes by walk from the bus station! Not in the city center which is perfect to relax and chill, also loved the fact that after 23:00 people needs to be quiet. Ideal for those who want to relax but also for those who want to go out as the city center is not far. Zadar is a small town so it’s easy to get everywhere by walk from the hostel. Everything was clean, kitchen well equiped and the outdoor area is super nice. Only stayed one night but would have stay more if I was no

    Great hostel! I stayed for a few days at the beginning of my trip, and it was the perfect place for a solo traveller. The hostel is very social, with a bar and with cocktails in the evening. Highly recommend joining the bbq dinners as they were delicious.

    The hostel is further away from the old city than I realized. Still, it is a very close walk to a great swimming spot and close to a few grocery stores. The walk to the old city is about 35-40 minutes but it's a beautiful walk along the water. The staff works very hard and are really friendly. The AC in the room was amazing and the kitchen is huge with everything you need. The front patio space is a cool spot to hang out and you get a really fun vibe here.

    Large, clean rooms with a large kitchen. Thoroughly enjoyed the bbq - make sure you email them to book in advance else you might miss out (they only buy enough food for those who have said they want a plate). Lovely social area where I met loads of people. Great staff including a guy called Chris who drives a mini bus into town at 11pm. The only downside is that it’s a 30 minute walk / £5 taxi back

    Really enjoyed my stay at the hostel. The room I stayed in was well air-conditioned, clean with a comfortable bed. The bar has an excellent selection of drinks available for decent prices. The staff were brilliant, I was late arriving due to a delayed flight and I was able to check in much later than expected due to the system they had in place for such circumstances. Would definitely stay again, and whilst it's not in the old town, it is only a pleasant walk or really cheap taxi ride away.
