We had a duo room and it was absolutely perfect. Private bathroom, comfortable beds, and no issues with room temperature. The reception people were very helpful and extremely knowledgeable. They gave us directions, printed our boarding passes and gave some great suggestions. The Botique Hostel has an incredible location with everything you need in steps away including the Sea Organ!...

The hostel has a good location close to the forum and the sea. The personal was very nice and helpful. The room was clean and small perfect for a short stay. I liked to stay in this hostel. Zadar is very beautiful and easy to discover at any time.

We have stayed here during an excursion with 33 people. I shared a dorm with 3 others. Although the room was very small, the beds were very comfortable with a nice view to the city. Even if you share the room with strangers, you still get some privacy due to the shutters on the bed. The hostel has a common...

Perfect location with everything close, restaurants, bars, the beach walk, the sea organ. Very good breakfast with lots of variety. Also the staff was very helpful with everything. The room we had was great with interior of mirrors and an elevated bed with a great view of the Square and sea.

I really enjoyed my stay here. The bed was super comfy and the bunk bed design is different but great. The view from my window out onto the forum was a great to wake up too. Super easy to get to and is close to everything you need. The breakfast to go is a great idea too. Lovely and informative...

I was a bit nervous about staying here because I am generally not a big fan of hostels but I have to say, the room I stayed in was okay. Perhaps it's because it was just the two of us but I found it much better than I could have expected. The staff is absolutely wonderful and helpful as well....

We decided on a short notice (48 hours) visit to Zadar. There are not a lot of hotel options in the old town and with some weariness we booked a Lux room at the Hostel Forum at €72 including breakfast. We need not have been concerned, the Hostel Forum is a hotel to all intents and purposes, the exception being...
