Liked: Prompt & friendly transport to & from the bus station in Hvar to the hostel itself, which was greatly appreciated and only a phone call away. The hostel (and the island) itself was quiet and had very few visitors due to low season, so I was moved to an apartment, which was nice. Beautful views of the town from the balcony. Kitchenette, TV, and private bathroom were in the room as well. A short walk away from a supermarket and not far from the centre of town or a popular beach.

Disliked: The hostel was located on a hill, so the walk to the hostel may be a bit of a trek when coming from the centre of town. Hostel & town were very quiet at the end of October, so it may be a disadvantage to those who were looking for more of a party atmosphere at the time (I loved the peaceful atmosphere, so it was actually great for me.)

Liked: The staff were lovely, warm and helpful. The location is a bit out of the town centre but the owner and her colleagues ferry people to and from the bus station near the marina whenever you need (within reason) she even rented a boat for us for a much cheaper price than quoted by companies in town, and drove us there too. The place is really pretty and our apartment had a terrace, telly and kitchenette. The rooms in the main house all go out onto a beautiful terrace with pink flowers growing down the walls and breathtaking ocean views. The people here all work so hard and were great. The experience of staying here was definitely worth the walk back home, which is nothing after a few drinks anyway!

Disliked: Genuinely just the distance from town. That being said, I would definitely stay here again if visiting hvar. Which I will be.

Liked: The patio atmosphere is great and allows you to meet fellow travelers. A kitchen was available and the bedding was regularly changed. The location seemed to match many other hostels ( an uphill 10 minute walk). They will pick you up and drop you off for free when you first arrive and depart.

Disliked: One or two workers were rude, though the owners were extremely nice. If anyone wanted to socialize past 10:30pm you had to vacate the premises. *The air conditioning was turned on at night if you requested it.

Liked: Pick-up/drop-off at bus station or harbour is very convenient, comfortable terrace, close to a nice beach, not too far away from town, but still very quiet if you want a good night's sleep.

Disliked: Beds are a little creaky, and there was some ugly black mould in the shower cabin. Other than that, though, everything was very clean.

Liked: Big outdoor terrace. Free pick up service. Clean and nice bathroom. Friendly staff. Free pub crawl every night. They have an Ipad you can use, however a pc might be useful too.

Disliked: Might be hard to find the first few times, it's not close to centre or anything. But then the advantage is, it's a quiet neighbourhood. Kitchen is poor compared to the other facilities the hostel has to offer.

Liked: Such a cool place with great terrace to chill out on. They do a bar crawl every night so its a great introduction to hvar nightlife and great way to meet lots of people. Staff were really lovely and helpful. Good location for the best beach in hvar. Highly recommended!

Disliked: We stayed in a 6 bed dorm and it was quite small so it felt crowded and little room for our backpacks. Also the staff were a bit stingy about putting the air con on!

Liked: It has great atmosphere, free burgers sometimes, and at night they take you to a club where you get a free shot. They have an iPad that you can ask for in the reception that is really a plus if you have to Skype or something. They pick you up at the port and that's great, because otherwise you'd get lost the first time. There's a supermarket nearby.

Disliked: I think it's a bit expensive. There's not a really secure place to store your luggage if you wanna check out at ten and go to the beach. All of the staff was really nice, except for the black haired woman at the front desk, I'm sorry to say it like this, but she can be a b!tch. Other than that, if it was cheaper I'd totally go again.

Liked: This is a great place to stay, especially when travelling solo. Hvar is a place to meet people and experience the nightlife - this hostel delivers on that! Clean, laid back, great staff (particular shout out to Chris and Kate, who are champs!) and a great common area (outdoor patio) where everyone has a few a few drinks before going out (should you choose, there was no pressure here). The hostel gave us a free BBQ on Sunday and a free all day boat trip around the Palenki islands, due to some construction activity in the street that closed the hostel for a few hours during one day (which was outside their control!). Its also very close to a good swimming beach and the supermarket. The walk to the main square can be done in 10 to 15 minutes and its never a problem,especially when chatting away to new folk you have met!

Disliked: I had a great time here and disliked nothing

Liked: Good location, great place to party. Really easy to meet people as a solo traveler. Had my birhday here and they got me a giant drink at the bar. I really like this place. Picking me up and dropping me off at the ferry was a great perk (otherwise its a terrible walk with luggage)

Disliked: When I walked in to my room someone had left the master key set on the kitchen table, including the keys for all the lockers in our room. I could have robbed everyone ( but instead I gave the keys back) Use your own lock!

Liked: This hostel was the highlight of my trip! The staff was amazing, friendly and welcoming. It is the perfect place to meet people, since everyone hangs out on the terrace at night before leaving for bars. The island of Hvar is a must. Amazing landscape, beaches, nightlife and meteo! I would go back there anytime.

Liked: The roof terrace is a great way of meeting other guests and chilling out in the day.

My room was spacious and the personal kitchen was a nice touch giving a communal area for our particular room to eat together in.

Liked: Hostel Villa Marija is one of the best hostels I've stayed at. The place is very secure with pin pad security to all rooms. There is a large verandah to relax and socialise on, they also provide a well stocked kitchen to prepare your own food. The staff are so lovely and helpful, in particular, Ivan, Marija and Kate! If you have any questions or issues they are always happy to help out. The hostel is located close to one of the nicest beaches on Hvar, but is a decent 5-10 minute walk to the city centre. This is a great place for anyone looking to party, relax or simpy meet new people

Disliked: N/A
