Property Description

The Lazy Monkey Hostel is the latest little gem to arrive in Zadar. We are unique, homely and supply comfortable accommodation offering both dormitories and private rooms.

The hacienda styled building is designed for relaxation and has plenty of space for fun and shenanigans. Our vibrant terraced area has plenty of low seated furniture, beanbags and hammocks to chillax and socialize. We have hookah pipes and eclectic music for everyone's taste. Guests have the use of the huge courtyard. We also have a large upstairs terrace with eating areas and a sizable secure car park.

We are foreign globetrotting owners that have built a team of seasoned travelers and local staff that are the foundations of this fantastic property.

We are minutes walk to the best waterfront locations where we all go cliff jumping together and not forgetting a beer or two at the local tequila sunrise bar. A fun hostel and also a place for you to kick back for a few days, The Lazy Monkey Property is the home away from home.

Entertaining nights in and exciting nights out are also on offer. A calendar of activities at The Lazy Monkey include, food evenings, regular group BBQ's, games and quiz nights. Feel free to light up the BBQ yourself or use our huge catering facilities. You won't find a property kitchen quite like it.

Zadar offers the perfect short break with activities and sites for every type of traveler: beautiful rocky coast line, stunning scenery, sparkling aquamarine waters, breath-taking sunsets and three National Parks nearby.

Guests have their own free lockers to use, power bars, air conditioning and fans. All private rooms have a private fridge for themselves as well as tea and coffee maker for you to use.

    I really enjoyed this hostel, it has a laid-back atmosphere and the people were very friendly. In fact most of the people staying at this hostel were booking extra nights because of how much fun they were having.

    Good hostel - has everything you need. The wifi was a bit dicey in my room though. Rooms were big and clean. For me the location was great - 10 minute walk from the transport station and from the beach. I walked in and out of the old town and the distance didn’t bother me. Atmosphere was good - nice place to chill and if you want to party you can meet up with the other hostel. Would stay again.

    Although the Hostel is not in the old town, I consider the location great as the walk to the ols town by the water is amazing. Also a 20min walk from the ferry to the islands. There is a grocery store near by and it's a 10 minute walk to the bus station. Staff is very helpful and good social areas. Would stay again! :)

Things to Note

All booking cancellations must be made 48 hours before arrival date by email.

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.

Check in from 14:00 to 22:00 .
Check out before 11:00 .

Taxes not included - Croatian government tourist tax 8.00 HRK per person per night.
Breakfast not included.

No curfew.

Please note that our property is not located in the old town and is a pleasant 20 minutes walk along the water front.

Our reception is open during the hours of 8.30 am - 10.30 pm. Arrival outside of these times requires a direct email to the property.

We are an 18+ property. No exceptions will be made.
During our season in Dalmatia, especially festival time, most Croatian properties usually have a young vibrant crowd, who produce fun and noise for which we try to maintain the best we can. However, you must be of the understanding, that this is part of The Lazy Monkey Property life in and around our operating months.
