Liked: The staff was really friendly and helpful upon arrival, they let me print my flight ticket for free that was no problem, not many people there so alot of space for us but more people means more fun though! And they had free towels.

Disliked: The only thing I disliked that I didn't get a reply to me e-mail I sent the hostel before I arrived just asking about tours and stuff to do around this time.

Liked: Awesome staff and the hostel has a cool vibe to it. Rooms are spacious. Free towels. Nice blanket & pillow.

Disliked: There are no lockers for your luggage. They provide small lockers (like, to store your passport or cell phone), but they don't work very well. Also, guest at not allowed in the hostel between 11am-2pm for cleaning. If you check out and have to wait for your bus, there are signs all over saying "you cannot hang out, use the toilet/showers, etc. since you are no longer a paying guest." Not very welcoming.

Liked: Riva Hostel is well situated and proposes an amazing roof top with a bar. The kitchen is nice and the hostel is clean. We didn't spend much time so I couldn't describe well the atmosphere, but it's clearly a great place to have a good time in Pula.

Disliked: The doors of the dorms are thin and partly in glass, so one can see the light and hear the noises of the hall while trying to fall asleep.

Liked: Great location, nice , sociable atmosphere and super friendly and helpful staff. Everything was kept very clean. I also really appreciated the computer/internet in the common room area which was free to use.

Disliked: Only some rooms have air conditioning. The room we stayed it got boiling hot at night/early morning. It would be great if they could install fans in rooms without AC.

Liked: Location about 15min walk in a straight line from main bus station (to/from other cities). Enroute between is a branch of Mlinar bakery to pickup breakfast when moving to leave town. From hostel old town is around the corner where you can buy things or get food. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Wifi is good, fast and works in common area and dorm rooms. Lots of free towels to use for showers and (probably) beaches. Very good airconditioning for overnight in summer. (Visit Rovinj - it is really beautiful).

Disliked: There are no locks on dorm room doors (but there are small safety deposit boxes in them), but wasn't a problem for me.

Liked: Great location, very close to old town, the amphitheatre and the bus station. There was a kitchen and fridge available for guest use, and a simple breakfast was provided in the morning of cereal and bread. The staff were extremely helpful and informative about Pula and the surrounding area.

Disliked: There was some mud and noise directly outside of the hostel due to roadworks, but that was not the hostels fault and don't let it discourage you when you first arrive!
