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

    Amazing hostel! Outside area & the nightly events they arrange made it easy to meet other guests. The bbq/burger nights are so good! Huge kitchen, plenty of bathrooms/showers & nice big rooms with comfy beds. Lovely coastal walk into the city. Plenty of potential day trips from Zadar - National Parks & near by islands. The hostel is close to the supermarket (2 mins) & to the beach (5/10 mins) - amazing sunsets! Staff have good local knowledge & can provide recommendations for the rest of Croatia

    My favorite hostel I’ve ever stayed in! The outdoor seating areas are great for relaxing and meeting new people. It used to be a restaurant, so there’s a HUGE kitchen cook in, and awesome staff to help you plan your time around Zadar! The city itself is awesome, but trips to the islands and national parks make your time here a huge bonus!!

    This is easily one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in - and as a long-term traveller - I've stayed in a lot. The staff are awesome, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the large, sunny terrace at the front of the property helps create a really good atmosphere amongst all the guests. They offer some great tours and there's always something social organised to keep you entertained. You'll seriously make friends for life here - even over a short stay. Book this hostel. You won't regret it.

    Lazy Monkey is by far one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. The staff/management are extremely friendly and helpful. You don't feel like just another random person looking for a bed like some larger hostels. The atmosphere at lazy monkey is really relaxed and comfortable. I had the best BBQ there on their BBQ dinner night and really enjoyed hanging round and meeting fellow travelers. I cannot wait to visit Lazy Monkey again!

    Really friendly atomosphere. Clean bathrooms which were appreciated and everything made really easy for us! Because of who I am I'd have loved to see some notes about monkey conservation and the dangers of keeping monkeys as pets somewhere. Even a wee donation box to a monkey sanctuary. The brand is so strong and it would be great to utilise it!

    Super close to the bus station and only a 20 minute easy walk to Old Town. Hot water and shower pressure were great. Staff not that friendly but it was the last week of the season so may have been better in high season. Monday night Quiz night was tons of fun! Kitchen needs better knives, large cooking space. WiFi was ok, not great.

    I stayed here towards the end of the season just before the hostel was closing for Winter. When I arrived I was instantly put off by the rudeness of the staff, they were so unhelpful in every way possible, very unfriendly and generally seemed like they couldn’t be bothered to be there. It wasn’t a great arrival to Croatia to be honest! I met some nice people there though and generally the cleanliness etc was ok however there was not a lot of things to do close by. Owners seemed nice but staff no
