Nice place to chill down and rest. It has a good kitchen and shower-toilette facilities. The rooftop is nice with a good view and with a table so you can eat outside if the weather is good. The atmosphere is kind of quite not a real common area, so maybe is better if you go with a group than as... More

Spectacular location. Amazing terrace with great views of Hvar (great for late night drinks). The place is super clean. I stayed with my boyfriend for 4 days in a shared 6 people bedroom. The other guest were really cool - a great international crowd. The owner Rino and his wife were the best. Coming back next summer. Only small minus... More

Fantastic hostel with incredible views over the islands rooftops and harbour from bedroom windows and open roof top dining area. The owner Reno was a gentleman and welcomed us with a home made family wine and his hospitality continued through the week, happy to assist booking boats tours etc. Easy access to restaurants, bars, boats, old town, new town, but...

We stayed at this hostel for 3 nights. We booked a twin private room..for the price we paid for the room(shared bathroom) was VERY expensive, considering we have been traveling around Croatia and have stayed in much nicer places and for a lot cheaper (we had apartments which had three rooms!!) Everything was just disappointing - towels, size of the... More

My friend and I stayed in the double bed apartment, which is actually a few minutes away from the hostel, for two nights. The host met us at the hostel at 11 ish (we had to wait around because our ferry arrived at 9:30, so I would recommend just grabbing a long breakfast, or calling ahead of time to see... More

Clean apartment, nice bathroom and beds. I has an small kicthen, nice and equipped. The recepcionist was very welcoming. Air conditioner fine also. The only negative (or neutral) aspect is that is was 10-15min away from the main attraction of the port.

Originally we were booked into stay one night in this hostel and then move onto dubrovnik. After one night we ended up staying three nights and still didn't want to go. Which sums it up! The hostel was in an awesome location! Literally right on the waterfront. Great balcony views for dinner and drinks in the afternoon. Reno was very... More

Quite possibly the best hostel I've ever stayed in! I was welcomed by the host, who is an absolute champion of a bloke, with an ice-cold beer and a friendly chat. Cleanest hostel ever and everything works because the owner takes a lot of pride in his family home. Rooftop terrace is superb, aircon works great in all rooms and... More

I came here with friends and stayed alone also. The owner Rino is helvetia's greatest asset, he's such a lovely man, always smiling and keeps the place impeccably clean. Having stayed at other hostels, this wins on facilities, location and price: it is literally in the centre of hvar town, no need to walk 10-15 mins like most others. Further... More

What a great hostel! I stayed in a 4 bed mixed dorm and loved every minute of it. The air conditioning was top notch, views from the outside terrace were lovely and the owner was incredibly kind and helpful. The location is very good too! Right in the heart of the action and easily found. I whole heartedly recommend this... More
