    I enjoyed staying for one night and making new friends at WindWard! The Manager is very kind and helpful, and the hostel has everything I call "hostel default settings" such as the dimmed separate light at each bed, the towels, the lockers, the power sockets, the coffee/tea facilities

    This is a very nice hostel for the price. Staff here is very kind. You get free cookies, cornflakes etc throughout the day. Hostel is very clean and located in a quiet area, though not very far from the city center.

    Although slightly out of the main centre of Zadar, this hostel is a little gem. Brand spanking new I think - lovely clean facilities and a very modern feel. We had a twin room with private shower, and our son had a bed in the 8 bed dorm (to himself as it was September and fewer tourists). The one staff member we met was really friendly, and I got the impression that in peak season this would be a fun place to hang out, with a nice little lounge area, a balcony and a breakfast bar. Thanks!!

    No real common area outside to chill so no one is really there and it wasn't very social. Kitchen is tiny, can't imagine you'd really be able to cook there. But it's clean and the staff are really nice and flexible.

    Although abit out of the centre the hostel was great, staff were very helpful and told us about everything we should see in Zadar, there was also free cereal, tea, coffee and biscuits which we wasn't expecting. The showers were mouldy but everything else was clean.

    Room wasn’t what we ordered, and quite far out. Clean but a bit average to be honest!

    The atmosphere wasn't super friendly and there aren't big open spaces for meeting other travellers. However our private room was very cheap and had a private bathroom and was super clean.

    This hostel is too expensive for what it offers. The rooms are tiny, kitchen is tiny and the location isn't good. The staff was really nice and let me check in later but the hostel itself isn't good at all.
