Property Description

Our hacienda-styled hostel & apartments are set in a peaceful surrounding community, close to waterfront cliffs and daytime bar. WE ARE NOT IN THE OLD TOWN! PLEASE DON'T BOOK WITH US IF YOU INTEND TO LEAVE A BAD LOCATION RATING....! We are located a pleasant walk from the old town and 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, all the amenities you need with social space in abundance.
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 and 15 minutes by local transport(bus). Renowned for being a place to kick back for a few days, close to the bus station, 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!

* 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

    This hostel was fantastic. It’s right next to rocks that are great for cliff jumping, and a short walk to the beach. It is a half an hour walk to the old town but I’d have never found the other beautiful side of town If I hadn’t have stayed here. There is an amazing atmosphere and the hostel is very social, that being said this isn’t a party hostel but there is a bar and people do go out at night drinking, they often run a bus from the hostel at night to drop people off in the old town. Beach towels are als

    Very social hostel located right by the beach! Staff were very helpful and free coffee in the mornings is great! Also love the individual bathrooms. Only thing is lights on beds would have been nice and garbages were overflowing until being cleaned the next day

    A nice, characterful hostel with a range of evening activities and a good mix of people of all ages looking to meet others. The location is quite out of the way but this actually gives the hostel a bit of a community vibe. The staff are nice though a bit blunt. They also falsely advertised there was a pub quiz and gave Covid as an excuse for this not happening. It feels to me that they would be able to bring these activities back now and if they're not going to, they should update their flyers.

    My partner and I stayed in a mixed bed dorm for 3 nights. The late check in was easy and the staff were really helpful. The location is about 10 minutes from the bus stop, however is about 35 minutes via the waterfront to the old town. The social spaces were good, with a large common area, outside seating, and an on site bar. Our dorms were dingy and the lights were never on, due to 2 people sleeping throughout the day, with exceptionally squeaky beds. Staff great, facilities good, location poor
