The owners are fantastic. Phillip and his father were very good hosts and my wife and I enjoyed talking to them. I was here two summers ago, and had the best hostel breakfast I've ever had. But our visit this year was in September and we did not get breakfast because our stay was not in the high season. :( But, early September was still very warm and there are great sights to see on this island. Highly recommended hostel on a fantastic island.

Me encantó. El albergue está perfectamente situado en una casita de piedra del pueblo, a pocos metros de la estación de autobuses y del puerto y los restaurantes de stari grad. El pueblo es una maravilla, muy tranquilo, en el que da gusto pasear. El albergue es sencillo, pero muy agradable, limpio y absolutamente recomendable. Está abierto las 24 horas y tiene wifi incluido en el precio. De los mejores albergues en los que he estado en mi vida y he estado en muchos. Un 10.

Ubicación tranquila y muy agradable, con mucho encanto. Las instalaciones estaban bien, pero en la acogida el personal no te enseña las instalaciones ni su disponibilidad, lo vas descubriendo por tu cuenta o nada. No pudimos pagar con tarjeta la estancia.

Auberge à proximité des commerces et restaurants mais aucun panneau donc compliqué de trouver l'établissement depuis la station de bus!!!! Un coup de peinture serait le bienvenu! Chambre correcte même si la chaise et le pouf tachés pourraient être débarassés, ou remplacés (pas si chers)! Sanitaires dans la chambre délabrés et pas très propres.J'ai voyagé dans de nombreuses auberges de jeunesse, il n'y aucun effort de fait dans celle-ci, dommage. Je ne la recommanderai pas.
