I visited this hostel with two of my friends and we stayed in a room with three beds, which was perfect for us. We had fridge and WC/shower next to the room. There are public facilities like kitchen, WC and fridge, but everything works well and has a great standard. The prices are good, around 60€/pers pr night and standard... More

My friends and I (a group of 7 girls) chose this hostel anticipating a fun, party and social atmosphere upon reading about the pub crawl etc. Instead we found the hostel to be dull and actually very strict - quiet time after 11pm and security people walking around telling people off for doing really nothing wrong. The pub crawl was... More

Genuinely cannot fault this place. We stayed in a private 3 bed room which was clean, tidy and had everything we needed (even a kettle !!). Hosts were incredible, so helpful and friendly. Great location, very sociable bar. Stay here if you go to hvar!

My friends and I stayed at Villa Skansi, and our expectations were greatly exceeded! The location is constantly being cleaned. They provide a nightly pub crawl and free pizza before going out. It was a great place to meet new people, and felt very safe and accommodating. The girls in the front were lovely and helpful. I hope to return... More

A huge hostel - perfect for meeting others as a solo traveller. Nightly "Pub crawl" is average; disorganised and only 1 or 2 bars visited but nice to go out as a group to meet people at least once, perhaps on the first night of your stay. There is a bar on site which is reasonably priced, and free pizza... More

Great hostel in Hvar, just a 10 min walk from the harbor. Staff is super friendly, and there is a terrace bar great for meeting and hanging out with other travelers. Lots of outdoor seating near the bar and on other terraces for chilling, and a kitchen if you want to cook. Definitely will stay here again when I return... More

Unfortunately I only got to stay in this hostel for one night but absolutely loved it and it's my favourtie yet! Stayed here with a couple of friends who had never done hostels before (and were very skeptical they wouldn't like the experience) and they are now completely sold! It's a must do if you are travelling alone in Hvar,... More

Don't go there if you want to leave the island one day ;) traveling alone is not difficult if you stay in this hostel, beautiful, clean, spacious and super friendly. Piece of cake to meet other guests, plenty of common areas and a cozy bar. Ok, maybe this is something that all hostels have but the generosity and kindness of... More
