Liked: An awesome hostel settled in a beautiful Adriatic city. The staff was really helpful and great to hang around with. The hostel is perfect for lonesome travelers and larger groups because it's easy to meet fellow travelers in the common area (there is a common area inside the hostel and a big terrace outside in the courtyard). There are also a lot of parking spaces.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: First off, the set up of the hostel has a very cozy ambiance - the furniture, the interior design, the rooms...! Secondly, the staff were really friendly and helpful...you really can tell the difference when the staff at any hostel hangs out with everyone. There was definitely a fun nightlife at the hostel as well...everyone there is very open so it's easy to make friends and just have a great time. Even though the location is a 15-20 min walk from Old Town (5 min from the bus station), it was still convenient because you could also have the option of walking along the coast or whatnot... OVERALL: GREAT PLACE!

Disliked: The fun parties at the hostel are its "downfall" because it can get a bit loud...if you need to get up early the next morning...otherwise, everything's swell!

Liked: really lovely staff, nice beds, good location (although not ridiculously close to the bus station, at least a 10 minute walk.. walking fast). Would be a great atmosphere in the summer with the outside seating and the bar.. (unluckily I was there in the off season)

Disliked: the blankets were completely tiny, had to use two because they weren't proper blankets. they were the blankets you use when you watch TV, just little couch blankets. Cannot really think about anything else that was bad- good hostel!

Liked: The staff are phenomenal! Tanita and Jaz are great. The tours they offer are really cool, and fairly priced. The kitchen was so big, and tons of free spices and what have you. Also the security is incredible! I never felt like my stuff was in danger, even when I left it just sitting on my bed. Location is really close to the bus station, which I prefer over being in the city center, which is a good 20 minute walk from the bus station. Stay here if visiting Zadar!

Disliked: My only complaint is the music being played by Tanita was tremendous and made me not want to go out exploring the city like I should.

Liked: Great friendly staff, very helpful. No prior planned is needed, their staff will rattle of what’s on offer, they even worked out if other travellers where going and sorted shared taxis. Relaxing indoor and outdoor common area, chill, talk and drink. Most of Zadar is within a 20 min walk or a £2 taxi ride.

Disliked: joseph left no negative feedback.

Liked: Awesome ladies at the reception - always helpful, smiling and ready to recommend most beatiful sites around. The atmosphere in the hostel is also nice - it somehow attracted a lot of brilliant people. I think it's a really nice place for a comparatively quiet and relaxed vacation.

Disliked: It was quite cold at the beginning of April but that was solved by using a heater and extra blankets. You can say it's relatively far from the old town but it's in less than 20 minutes walking distance and taking a taxi would cost around 3 euro.

Liked: Amazing staff. They were all incredibly friendly and helpful. Even took me out for a drink the first night I was there! Overall just great people and I loved the hostel. Very artsy and fun.

Disliked: It was cold at night but that's because of the time of year I went. The staff also provided extra blankets for me which was great.

Liked: Great new hostel - it's their first season. Everything was new and clean, staff were all friendly and helpful, and the patio area out front is amazing! My first night there was the birthday of one of the owners. So they had a party outside, with free food and drink we were welcome to share. There's a bar where you can get drinks, coffee and toasties. Also a nice large kitchen for guests. Laundry service, wifi and a computer for guest use are all available. Only a 5-7 minute walk from the bus station, which is convenient the morning you leave. I had a great time here, and wish them luck for next year!

Disliked: Not much to dislike, just a few small things that are no big deal. Wifi only works in the lounge area, not in the rooms. They could use a couple more toilets/showers, but I didn't have to wait long. It was a bit of a walk to the old part of town, maybe 20-30 minutes. I usually walk everywhere anyway, so I didn't mind, but some people might. Otherwise, everything was great.
