The hostel was booked for our time in Pula. A short walk from the main bus and ferry terminal. This is easy to find. We booked a 4 bedroom dorm with shared bathroom. Upon arrival the lady on reception advised she would put us in the "nicer room" which was a 3 bed, so one less snorer to contend with.... More

Unhelpful recepcionist - we didn't get any information on hostel working hours or anything else for that matter. Rooms are not that affordable, also not the cleanest place. Not the place we would choose again.

I find it hard to think of a better location for a hostel in Pula. From our window we could see the captivating Lighting Giants and all Pula's main attractions are a couple of minutes away by foot. There is no free parking but there is plenty of parking space around the hostel, is very inexpensive but a bit troublesome... More

I hardly think that you can get better view over the harbour than from this hostel. I stayed here for the first time and can say that everything was perfect except there was no wi-fi signal in the room at all so that's why I rate with 4 stars. Owner was extremely kind, other guests didn't make much noise, place... More

Manager did not answer the door, feel warm or like she wanted to help. No internet available in rooms. Extremely basic rooms, though clean. Could hear lots of noise from rooms next door. Way overpriced. Stay away.

My friend and I came to Pula and had quite an awful experience at this hostel. Both at check in and check out there was no one at the counter. The first time I had to ask a cleaning staff, who called the person that was supposed to be there and had me talk to them on the phone, which... More

We had a colourful clean well equipped room with private shower. The hostel is right by the forum of Pula and the historic sights. Danijela at reception is very friendly and helpful. She helped us arrange trips out and with our onward travel.

Good location but really not impressed by the complete lack of Wifi which we were told worked upon arrival only to talk to other guests that said it had never worked! Not very clean either and kitchen not particularly ideal. Shame as great location and some of the staff were nice.

We stayed one night at the chandelier room (private room with shared bathroom) and we liked it a lot. The girl at the front desk was very nice and did her best to help us to find a proper accommodation. She speaks lots of languages and she always smiles. The room was very clean, had a nice view of the... More

We stayed in this hostel for a couple of nights, 3 girls in a 4 bed dorm with ensuite shower and toilet. Pleasantly surprised with this hostel after reading some of the reviews! The hostel is a 10 minute walk from the bus station, set near the water. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. Room was okay! Not 5*... More

“- book by contacting the hostel directly - pay the bill immediatelly, so one can simply leave whem the time comes - do not forget to ask for the room-key as well for the mani-entrance key! - recommendable for a "several-days-stay" - take the single/double rooms, much better, much nicer bathroom, 2 roomes share one! - dormitory ok, better for a group, bathroom not so clean!”
