Welcome to Riva Hostel, an extension of one of the top-rated hostels in Croatia!

Featuring 9 x Seaview rooms -- facing the Adriatic Sea and fishing boats, 20m away from your window!

Located in the heart of Pula's center and at the famous Pula waterfront (Riva), we are steps away from the historic Forum and Kandlerova Street, which boasts some of the most impressive Roman architecture in Croatia, as well as a variety of cafes, bars, and shops.

Pula's breathtaking Amphitheatre ('Arena') is a mere five-minute walk from Riva Hostel, and all of Pula's main attractions are within walking distance.

Tucked inside a quiet Austro-Hungarian courtyard building, our comfy space consists of many large and spacious sleeping rooms with sea views, a large rooftop terrace with lounge chairs and a bar - great meeting point for our guests!

In addition, we offer hi-speed WIFI throughout the property.

Each room in our hostel has tall ceilings, which makes sleeping with more people in the room comfortable!

Each room has its own A/C unit.

Some rooms have their own newly renovated bathrooms, with spacious shower stalls inside the room, while the rest of the hostel uses a common shower area.

In all, there are 15 toilets and 11 showers available at any time!

All kitchen appliances and utensils are available for cooking and preparing anything from simple meals to large-scale lunches and dinners for group bookings.

Our staff is energetic and highly dedicated to the needs of each and every guest! It is our firm belief that going this extra mile is what makes a hostel experience above average, and takes at least some of the stress out of traveling and spending time in a foreign country.

We want you to feel at home in our hostel.

We are all more than happy to share our experiences, recommend travel ideas, provide useful information, and help you clarify and plan the remainder of your travels.

English, Spanish, and Croatian/Bosnian/Serbian are spoken here.

Pula's breathtaking Amphitheater ("Arena") is a mere five-minute walk from Riva Hostel, and all of Pula's main attractions are within proximate walking distance.

Building upon an already established and highly successful hostel business, our main mission is to make your holiday in Pula as comfortable, relaxing and fun as possible.
