    I had the absolute best experience at this hostel with my Shaka family!! Ivana, Hannah, Kieran & Beatriz were such an amazing, accommodating, caring & fun team. Extended my stay 3 times because I loved it so much!! The vibes were incredible, the place is super social & everyone is always keen on going out to rent boats, cars, go to the beach or go out at night. Also perfect because everything gets quiet at 10:30pm when everyone goes out. 10/10 would recommend to everyone coming to Hvar!

    Favourite hostel experience ever! Strangers became a lil family, we took boats out one day and convertibles out another. Clean facilities, nice rooms, great sociable terrace, free bar crawl and drinking games, friendly atmosphere. Shoutout to Hannah, Kieran, Beatriz and Ivana for making my stay so warm and having the best nights with us!! I'll treasure Hvar and this hostel forever, don't even think about any other hostel if you want a friendly atmosphere & memorable experience xx

    Hvar is amazing, and you should absolutely go! I met some amazing people at this hostel, both guests and staff. One morning woke up and rented boats with 15 other strangers and had one of the best days of my trip thus far. The hostel chill area is rather small but it does foster that social/community atmosphere. Loved this place. Only complaint would be that I wish it was a TAD bit closer to things, everything else was perfect.

    Incredible little hostel with a great view of the water. The staff were amazing! Place was spotless and bunks were comfortable with big under bed lockers. I booked for 3 nights but stayed for 5 and didn’t want to leave at the end of of! Close to beaches, supermarket and nightlife. Highly recommend getting a group together and hiring a boat for the day, so much fun. Would return in a heartbeat

    Good location, it’s a 10 minute walk into the centre. Even during low season it was a nice place to hang out. Unfortunately some of the storage drawers didn’t have latches to put locks on them but staff offered to keep anything important with reception if required. Great local tips and receptionist helped us organise boat hire.

    Very Good

    If you want a good night sleep don’t stay here. Evenings are all about drinking games- truth or dare and spin the bottle. Everyone goes out at 10.30pm but at 4am a couple came back to the dorm, made a lot of noise, turned lights on and then had sex. In the dorm, not very quietly. Also Wifi didn’t work in the dorm, showers didn’t have hooks so you had to hold the hose, there were no hooks for towels. It was fairly cheap and an ok location so if this is your scene, go for it.
