Important Information

Dear guests: Welcome to Riva Hostel! :)

Now for some logistics and rules -- we don't mean to bore you, but :::

-We kindly ask that you reply to our confirmation e-mails -- these are important, as we do not offer a 24-hr reception. Therefore, we must be notified of an approximate arrival time. SUMMER RECEPTION is open 9:30am - 11:00pm (23:00h) daily. We will work with you to accommodate late check-ins, but only if we are notified in advance! Thank you. AUTUMN RECEPTION (AFTER SEPT 10): check-ins BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please check your e-mail after booking. ;)

We kindly ask that you check your e-mail after booking, as we will be reaching out with an inquiry for your arrival time. This is important, as we do not offer a 24-hour reception. Our afternoon receptionist is at the hostel until 11:00pm (23:00). ***AFTER SEPTEMBER 10*** NO CHECK-INS AFTER MIDNIGHT (12:00AM), NO EXCEPTIONS! Thank you.

*** BOOKINGS AFTER SEPTEMBER 10 *** ALL check-ins are on an APPOINTMENT-ONLY BASIS. Please check your e-mail and kindly reply with an approximate time of arrival, or check-in will not be available at the time of your choosing!!! We cannot check anyone in after midnight, even in the event of transportation delays. Thank you for understanding.

Summer check-in: AFTER 15:00 (3pm) or earlier if the room/bed is already available before 3pm!
We will check you in just as soon as we can! :)
You are welcome to arrive at 14:00 (2pm), hang out on our terrace and have a drink, while the beds are prepared.

You may leave your bags and use the restroom/showers to freshen up, but please allow our cleaning staff to work by hanging out on the terrace, or outside of the hostel area!

- The hostel is thoroughly cleaned every day from 11am to 3pm.
During this cleaning time, we kindly ask that you make space for our cleaning staff, especially during the high season, so that facilities can be cleaned daily to the highest of sanitary standards that we aim for! We will always clean the empty rooms first, so as not to disturb the late checkouts.

-Guests are not permitted to bring outside visitors onto the premises.

-Binge drinking, overly loud socializing, and ignoring the noise rules may lead to reservation cancellation without refund!

Age Range:

Liked: The property has a really great terrace that is fun for socializing and meeting other travellers. The 8 person room was very spacious and having A/C was a huge plus in the summer!

Disliked: I asked to extend my stay in the hostel by two nights which was confirmed via e-mail and in person at check-in. The day that our initial booking was up, we returned late from a day trip to find another person staying in my bed. Our other roommates had informed the staff that my friend and I were not checking out, and all of our stuff was still in the room, yet they still gave up my bed to another person. It was very unpleasant and I was placed in another room but did not have to pay for that evening.

Liked: It was a great social hostel with a wonderful rooftop terrace bar. It was a great place to meet people, without there being loud and disruptive parties late at the night. It was also right by the beautiful old town area of Pula. The staff were very helpful and the facilities were very good. Our stay here really made our trip to Pula something else.

Liked: The view of the harbour. Room was spacious. We had nice travellers in our room.

Disliked: I left a dress behind (in the shower) and wanted a friend traveller to bring to my next destination and emailed the hostel and the friend, and even though they found it, they gave some excuse that I needed to confirm that, but did not email me... plus I had already emailed them to say please give it to him to bring. It was just a bit weird. They told him they would ship it to my next destination, so I emailed them again and said please send it to my home. I have had no response. Also, price is expensive.

Liked: Nice hostel in a good location, not far from the bus station.

Disliked: You have to take lots of stairs if you go there, which sucks if you have heavy luggage. Also no lockers in the rooms, they have lockers that you lock with a code in the corridor, so you don't even need your own key which is actually good if you want to go to the beach.
