Liked: Staff very lovely and helpful, and you get free air con! But I would not recommend Fazana, it is a very nice small tourist town (mainly German and Italian camping families) and good for a trip to the National Park. But, if you prefer more life then stay in Pula.

Disliked: Kim left no negative feedback.

Liked: The owner was really friendly and helpful. But my favourite bit of the hostel was the outside veranda, so people sat outside the hostel and could just chat. This is a social hostel where you get to meet other people, which was what I wanted :) Also its about a 30 second walk from the beach! With the buses to Pula, they are a bit sporadic, so check the day before with the bus timetable pinned up on the board so you don`t wait for ages beforehand.

Disliked: Charlotte left no negative feedback.

Liked: Staff very kind, polite, nice. Hostel structure was refreshed recently: everythink ok. Excellent common TV room. Very quiet location during the night: you'll sleep well. If you like walking, you'll reach Pula easily along the coast (75-90 min c.a., 12km) it's a nice route. There are Markets available near there, open also on Sunday. Bancomat, good restaurant and everything available near the hostel.

Disliked: Bathroom is so small, that I suppose it'll get messy when lot of people is staying there! But I was the only guest when I was there, so it was excellent. No way to shield windows from sun light. It'll be a problem if you don't want to wake up at sunrise. As many other hostels, towel is not provided. Just bring it with you.

Liked: The property was a nice walk from the charming town of Fazana. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bathroom and room itself were both clean enough. The wifi was good. There's free parking right across the street.

Disliked: The room was tiny. The hostel isn't actually that close to Pula (although it might be easy to get to with public transportation, I don't know, because I had a car). Also, we visited in winter and were literally the only people in the hostel, which was somewhat eerie at night. None of these are really the hostel's fault, though.

Liked: It was a very good hostel, clean & cheap.

Disliked: It was a little far away from Pula City Center. The hostel is located in a small pretty village called "Fazana", 8 kms from Pula. You must take the bus 21 to get there. The bus stop in the city center of Pula is located in "Giardini" street. (Price = 15 kunas). A taxi should cost 60-80 Kunas.

Liked: Hostel Amfora is EXCELLENT and highly reccommended to any persons visiting Pula! The staff were extremely welcoming from the moment we arrived and this continued throughout our stay. The hostel is located within a 3minute walk from the beach and the town Fazana with taxis available to Pula for as little as 15kuna (£1.50). Rooms were great, clean and with a sink which was useful. What makes it so special is the atmosphere, everyone there is lovely from the owner (who is always on hand) to the cleaning and daytime staff; this reflects a perfect attitude throughout all those that stay and creates an incredible vibe!

Disliked: Joseph left no negative feedback.
