    The Shaka was my first ever stay at a hostel, and if I'm ever back in Hvar it'll be my go to spot. The staff there were so friendly and laid back. They were ready to assist with any requests. Amir, the owner/operator of the hostel was also very friendly and helpful. We wanted to rent boats one day so he called up the boat rental and booked our group a couple of boats, gave us directions to find the rental spot, and then we had a great day out on the water.

    Whatta place! I only stayed here for one night but it was one of the funnest times of my whole 6 months travelling. What really makes this place are the people that work here. Shoutout to Georgia, scooter boy, and great guy at the reception. You all showed everyone such a good time. The hostel itself is solid and clean. It's got a great view of Hvar town. Also, Amir who runs the place is fantastic. He truly radiates positivity and energy. Happy travels!

    I loved my stay at Shaka hostel!! Don't think anymore, just book your trip to Shaka hostel and you will find out the rest. Most helpful, funny and kind staff and all the people I met there made me want to stay there for the whole summer. I was travelling alone so this was a great place to meet new people. I'm definitely coming back here some day! Regards and love from the Finnish girl who invented the fishbowl fridays.

    I don’t usually write reviews but I couldn’t leave it without saying how amazing the staff is which makes this place so special. Even from the beginning you feel like home and they try their best to make your stay comfortable. The owner, Amir is the most amazing host I’ve ever met and Borna, the receptionist even took care of me when I hit my head to a cliff 😂 This place is heaven for solo travellers because there is a huge common area. I was very happy with my stay and would go again! Thanks ❤
