Liked: The hostel has a really nice terrace, which is good for relaxing and getting in contact with other guests. The guys at the reception are really nice and they also have a facility manager, who is always availible.

Disliked: Be careful, if you want to party hard: They have really STRICT RULES there:After 22:30 you are not allowed to use the terrace, the kitchen and even the balconys of the dorm rooms. There are kitchens in most of the dorms, but you are not allowed to use them except the fridge. So you have to use the common kitchen. The space in the dorms is really narrow. The staff is nice, but the only know about beaches ans party. If you want to do something else, e.g. nature stuff, there are not really informed.

Liked: Staff was really nice. Way description from the harbor was brilliant

Disliked: Nothing. It is a good hostel to spent the time at Hvar. Youth and groups have their room at the main building and couples or families can get a room in the building next door

Liked: The hostel was impressive facility wise. There was a small pool, lots of comfy seating areas and modern touch codes to enter in the rooms. Staff were there all night which made for a safer experience. In the evening, people gathered on the terrace for drinks and then someone escorted us down to a bar where we received free shots. The bathroom and shower facilities were fairly spacious and very clean.

Disliked: The only thing which was slightly annoying was the 15 minute walk in to the main town.

Liked: Really friendly staff with a great, well-priced little pizza and burger take-out located on the bottom floor, which is open from 5pm to midnight every day - definitely an unique feature to this hostel that I really liked. They'll even bring your food up to the patio for you when it's done, which made it feel like great hotel service.There is a great outdoor patio where everyone goes in the evening, and then out for the night. There are kitchens in every room and another main kitchen so that you can make all your food in the hostel if you want. Three markets are all located within a really short walking distance, as well as an ATM. The air conditioning also works REALLY well during the hours that it's turned on, from 6pm-10am. Almost too well, in fact, because it can be a bit chilly if your bed happens to be next to it (so choose a bed further away from the AC). The hostel also arranges for scooter rentals with pickup directly from the hostel, with the same prices as those found down in the town. Finally, for 65 Kuna they will wash and fold all your clothes for you, which is really nice. I would definitely recommend this hostel to everyone visiting Hvar!

Disliked: The pool wasn't very clean and most people (including myself) didn't use it. Not too big a problem, though, since the ocean is so close. The hostel is also located on the hill, so it's a bit of a climb to get to, but that's the case for most places in Hvar; it's a 10-15 minute walk up the hill from the old town, depending on how fast you walk. The only other complaint I would have is that the Wifi doesn't work in all the rooms; the signal isn't always strong enough. It does work very well on the outdoor patio, though.

Liked: I had an amazing stay at Villa Marija. I came to stay for just one night but end up extending it to 3 and wish it could be longer. At the check in the staff gives you a lot of tips about what to do in Hvar, which is great for people like me that comes with no plan at all.The room I stayed was really nice and clean, with a sink and fridge just for us; very convenient because you don't need to store all your things in the kitchen. A huge plus of this hostel is the common area, every night almost all the guests are drinking together and playing games, after that there's a free bar crawl leaving from there. Since I was travelling alone this was the perfect way to meet new people everyday.All in all definitely the best hostel I stayed on this trip so far.

Disliked: It's a bit of a walk from the town center, but that means it's closer to the most beautiful beach around, which is where I spent most of my time during the day anyway.

Liked: Even though I only stayed for two days, Villa Marija felt like home. Dennis,Kyle and Ivan are awesome, they really care about all the guests staying at the hostel and they'll give you ton of great suggestions what to do and how to spend your day. This is the place for everyone looking to socialise, meet people and relax. Great terrace to hang out, nice music, free wifi.

Disliked: Beer at the reception could be cheaper :P

Liked: Like the terrace for chilling in the evening. Our room had equipped kitchen & separate m/f showers. Very friendly, helpful (& cute) receptionist. Daily cleaner really helped keep clean compared with other hostels. Easy parking nearby. Beds & facilities very clean, well above average.

Disliked: It was near top of hill, steep climb back after every trip to town centre/beach/supermarket. At least it keeps you fit & tones your bum!
