The Drunken Monkey Hostel has an age restriction of 18+.

During our season in Dalmatia, especially festival time, most Croatian hostels usually have a young vibrant crowd, who produce fun and noise for which we try to maintain the best we can. Our reviews tell you we are normally pretty good at this. But you must be of the understanding, that this is part of Drunken Monkey Hostel life in and around our operating months.

Our reception is open during the hours of 8.30am - 10.30pm. Arrival outside of these times requires an e mail directly to the hostel through our webpage. Please contact us for more information.

Guest reminder: We are not a hotel and we do not offer red carpet service, however big hearts and smiles are here in abundance. Please, If you have never stayed in a hostel, do your research so you know what to expect.

We are not in the Old Town!!. We are 20 minute walk away in a glorious part of Zadar . The hostel is extremely close to the bus station and the waterfront.

About THE MELLOW MONKEY

Our friendly staff can also help guide you towards your own unique Croatian experience. With the Adriatic coastline at our doorstep, we offer you a perfect balance of relaxation, adventure and entertainment. We can arrange trips and tours for you to National Parks or Islands.

The Drunken Monkey is a clean, comfortable and secure hostel with lockers in every room. Located in the safe neighborhood of Arbanasi. Ideally situated minutes away from the city bus station, and the scenic Kolovare promenade, nothing Zadar has to offer is out of arm's reach.

SEVERAL ITEMS TO NOTE;
During the peak season we have an age restriction of 18+. We have the right to refuse stay for those not following this regulation.

Guests, we are not a hotel! Our service is excellent but we do not offer red carpet service. We share rooms, bathrooms, showers and common space.

We are a very laid back and a fun hostel meant for social travelers who are like minded. If you have never stayed in a hostel, please research so you know what to expect.

Croatian government tourist tax (7kn per person per night) applies on arrival and is not included in the total balance owed. All payments are due in cash upon arrival

If you desire a hostel close to the bus/train station, close to the water front and wish to stay in a safe and friendly local community, then this hostels location is 100%. 20 years of traveling experience and the majority of our guests tells us this is a great location. PLEASE, IF YOU WANT TO STAY IN THE OLD TOWN, BOOK A HOSTEL IN THE OLD TOWN. Don't book here and give us a bad rating for our location. The majority of our guests love the walk into town and love our family like atmosphere.

Accommodation Information

We offer a range of different rooms. Private accommodation, 4-bed, 5-bed, 6-bed and 8-bed dorms. All of the rooms are fresh and secure with lockers in every room. Our common areas include sun terrace, splash pool, BBQ, small kitchenette and lounging facilities around the hostel.

Location Information

We are not in the old town, instead we set ourselves just outside, in Arbanasi, one of the oldest communities still based in Zadar, where the people are friendly and it is very safe. The hostel is located only minutes from the coastline, and about a 20 minute walk to the old city gates. We want all of our future guests to be aware of our location before you book, we do not want bad ratings regarding our position in the city. We, and our previous guests, feel that being close to the bus station and best waterfront in Zadar also deserves a 100% rating on location.
On another note there are a few bars along the waterfront and cafes nearby. The bus station and the largest grocery store in Zadar is only 6 minutes walk away.

Cancellation Policy

Customers can cancel their reservation free of charge up to 2 days before arrival. After this date, charges will be applied by the property up to the first nights cost of the reservation, unless otherwise stated in the property’s conditions. Deposits paid are non refundable.
