I can’t recommend this hostel enough. It is in the heart of the beautiful old town and very near bars and restaurants. I shared a twin room with a friend and it felt closer to a hotel room than a hostel, everything is very clean and comfortable. They guy running it was amazing too, he had great recommendations and was so helpful. Even though I accidentally booked the wrong dates (off by one night) he was more than happy to fix the problem for no extra fee and we even ended up with a better room!

The best part of Hostel Elena was its staff. Extremely accommodating and very helpful with tips for exploring Zadar. The hostel was very clean and a perfect stay for my small group. Location was nestled perfectly in old town between the water, many restaurants, and some bars close by. The people I met in the hostel were very friendly but, as we were nearing the end of the shoulder season in May, it wasn’t the busiest. Definitely recommend.
