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...

I had an incredible time at this hostel. We booked very last minute and I am shocked that it was even possible to get a room because of the quality. Very clean and the atmosphere was amazing. The staff was friendly and fun to be around and the owner, Julia, was extremely accommodating. She genuinely cares about the guests and...

I hadn't been at Hostel Villa Skansi more than a couple of days before I started extending my stay as long as I could. I ended up staying two weeks, usually in private rooms but sometimes in dorms. In the end I had to pry myself away or I would have just stayed forever. Let's start with the property. The...

A group of 4 of us stayed at Villa Skanski for 5 nights and were thoroughly impressed with the accommodation, staff and level of service. Julia, Deli, Nikki, Marco and the other staff were a joy to talk to whilst in the hostel and made some great suggestions on things to do in Hvar. Pub crawl is a great way...

Villa Skanski is an incredible hostel that really ensures you have the best time! From the moment we checked in, we were greeted with free water & cake. The rooms are big, spacious & very comfortable. The set-up of the hostel is also very community based as there is an open bar area & patio which makes socialising & meeting...

We were recommended this hostel but we really wished we had stayed somewhere else. We booked two nights and online it said it was cheaper, but when we arrived there were hidden island fee's which weren't stated online. SSo you end up paying more when you arrive. You aren;t warned about their quiet times are the extent of them. I'm...

I got to DJ their bar patio twice and dj on their pub crawl. Met lots of awesome people and deli was always getting stuff done with an infectious smile. The owner as I was leaving offered to let me stay free if I kept DJing. Amazing people, great experience

We stayed on this property for 2 nights in a 3 bed private room. Room was decent size, clean with a balcony. The staff was very helpful and gave us good ideas of what we could do on the island. We rented scooters from the hostel as well, though the scooters were not very good. The property is a 10...
