Welcome to our hostel

A hostel with a beach? Yes! Our hostel in Zadar might be 5km away from the bustling medieval city centre, but it is just five minutes away from your very own pebble beach, complete with bar.

Situated in the Borik area of the town, the hostel is well served by buses which run throughout the day and night, making it a great location for groups wanting to mix a city break with the benefits of a beach break.

For culture vultures there are no less than 34 churches in Zadar. The Mainland Gate (Kopnena vrata), to the east of the Old Town, was built in 1543 and is renowned for having the most beautiful Romanesque churches in Croatia, such as the Cathedral of St. Anastasia, the Church of St. Chrysogonus, and the Bell-tower of St. Mary (all 12th and 13th century).

Apart from the rich cultural heritage Zadar is bustling with life and charm, but the real treat is the proximity of the Kornati, a beautiful archipelago of tiny islands which provide some of the best sunsets in the world.

There is also the unique water organ on Zadar's Riva which works with the motion of the waves to create eerie music. The sounds are then accompanied by a light display which is a favourite destination for families as well as school groups.

For groups looking for a bit more activity, the hostel has its own sports ground for basketball and football as well as table tennis and mini-golf courses. There is also a sailing club – ‘Uskok’ just a short walk away from the front door.

So whether you are looking to spend some time in Zadar to soak up the history, or if your group prefers to spend time soaking up the sun our hostel here is waiting to welcome you.
