Property Description

Welcome everyone to the Monkey Troop Hostels. The Lazy Monkey is the latest little gem added to our portfolio of small and unique hostels. Upon opening we became Hosteworld's top rated small Zadar hostel in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018, with our only real competitor being our sister hostel The Mellow Monkey.

We are globetrotting owners that have built a team of seasoned travellers and local staff that are the foundations of this fantastic homely hostel. Our hacienda styled building is set out for relaxation but has plenty of space for fun and shenanigans. Our vibrant terrace area has plenty of low seated furniture, beanbags and hammocks to chillax and socialise. Hookah pipes on offer and eclectic music for everyone's taste. You have the use of our huge courtyard and the large upstairs terrace eating area.

The Lazy has the Adriatic coastline on it's doorstep, only 200 meters to take a dip in the sea. We are located in a charming community of Zadar, just a few steps from the main bus station and near some of the best daytime bars, cliff jumping spots and waterfront locations our city has to offer. We are a mere 20-25 minute (beautiful) walk outside of the city walls, 15 minutes by local transport and only 5-10 minutes on one of our rental bikes. A fun hostel and a place for you 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. Our private rooms are on the second floor are separated from the noisier dorm rooms. There is a private fridge along with bathrooms and two showers. But that's not all... we supply entertaining nights and exciting nights out. We have a calendar of activities at The Lazy include a pool table, regular food events, group BBQ's, games and quiz nights. We guareantee you will find and chat to other like minded travellers at our hostels. Why not food share? It's a brilliant way to interact, feel free to light up our BBQ or use our huge catering kitchen designed for a restaurant!

On a final note, we really do want you to understand our location before you book with us. As a small hostel, it's very hard to complete with the big hostels especially when we get the occasional bad location rating from those that have not read our bio properly. We hope, like us, that when you book you will enjoy staying close to the main bus station, which offers surprisingly good food options. This safe neighbourhood of ours offers a scenic Kolovare promenade walk to town and the swimming areas are only minutes away. Nothing Zadar has to offer is out of the Lazy'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

    Keep coming back to this little gem and it’s always like coming back home. Conveniently located close to the bus stop and the water. Atmosphere is always welcoming and social so ideal for solo travellers. Entertainment is a different motto everyday with pub quizzes and bbq nights and other. Thanks for having as again lazy monkey crew. Look forward to coming again when the wind blows me back. 💓 🐝

    Lazy monkey was awesome, the staff were really nice/helpful and easy going. I only stayed 2 nights but being a small hostel you feel like a family after the first night and it was hard to leave. They have an awesome common area for meeting people. Location is a decent walk to old town but very close to super market bus station and good swimming areas. Good lockers for your small bag with valuables. They also have a privat tour for hostel members only to krka national park which was great.

    This is one of the best hostels I've stayed at. I think it's fairly priced. The staff were great. Libby was extremely approachable and helpful, as were all other staff. Was able to do a really great day trip to Krka through the hostel. Really enjoyed the time spent with Kyle. Felt very secure. Facilities good. Kitchen very easy to use. Atmosphere excellent. Perfect hostel for meeting other travelers. Would absolutely return here if going back to Zadar. I highly recommend.

    100% recommend staying at Lazy, we will definitely stay again next trip to Zadar. The staff and their cocktails are excellent, as are the people we met. There are couches outside to rest on if you arrive early! All the big and little things have been thought of and catered to at this hostel. Personally the only flaw was that the bar at Mellow Monkey (which everyone has to move to at 10:30pm due to us being noisy) just stunk like smoke - but everything else was perfect! Thanks for our stay!!

    We had a great stay. Great location, an easy 15 minute walk to the old town and close to beaches, swimming stops and transport. Social atmosphere with good outdoor area and bar. Free breakfast was a huge bonus and the first free breakfast we have come across in Croatia! Would recommend!

    Staff were great and super helpful upon checkin. We received a pamphlet of Zadar when we checked in which included a bunch of recommendations from the hostel. We took in a number of them (food especially), so having this was super helpful and took the work out of finding somewhere to eat. The hostel also had a great atmosphere and everyone seemed very friendly. The walk into town along the waterfront was beautiful, however be warned it is definitely a longer walk!
