    Oh. My. God!!! I’ve been traveling in hostels for 25+ years and this is my favorite of all time!! The staff is immediately warm and welcoming after a long day of traveling! They are there throughout your stay to assist you on where/how to go on the island!! The view is spectacular! The facilities are sparkling! You can party hard or you can just chill!! If you are coming to Hvar... stay here!!!!!!

    One of my favourite hostels so far! So clean, staff was so kind and the rooms were very spacious with beautiful balcony views. The staff also arranged for us rental booking with both a car and boat. Definitely recommend!

    One of the best hostels I’ve stayed at! The vibe is chill and great for meeting fellow travelers. The staff and volunteers are amazing - helpful in answering all questions and giving suggestions plus just fun to hang out with. The pub crawl is great but the fact that it’s quiet hours after 10:30 means you can sleep well. Everything is super well maintained and extremely clean. The location is close to the main town and has an amazing view.

    Simply fantastic. The location (and view) is great, the staff is friendly and welcoming, and the atmosphere is fun and relaxed. On top of this, they have some good deals with bars and restaurants in town. All in all, booking a stay here is a no-brainer in my opinion.
