We are the only hostel in Zadar owned and run by fellow travellers. Set in a charming part of town only 15 minutes walk along the water front to the old city gates. \'Why should I stay outside the old town?\' Well, quite simply, we offer what the other hostels do not. We have a decked garden, complete with sun loungers & splash pool, bar, and a sun terrace.

Our friendly staff can also help guide you towards your own unique Croatian experience. With the Adriatic coastline at our doorstep, we offer you a perfect balance of relaxation, adventure and entertainment.

The Drunken Monkey is a clean, new, comfortable and secure hostel, located in the safe neighborhood of Arbanasi. Ideally situated minutes away from the main bus station, and the scenic Kolovare promenade; nothing Zadar has to offer is out of arm\'s reach.

Prices are per person per night.

During the peak season we have an age restriction of 18+. Reminding all guests, Croatia has a young vibrant crowd over the summer periods, fun and noise (maintained by management), is part of this hostel in the peak season.

Guest reminder: We are not a hotel and we do not offer red carpet service, however big hearts and smiles are here in abundance. Please, If you have never stayed in a hostel, do your research so you know what to expect.
We are not in the Old Town!!. We are 20 minute walk away in a glorious part of Zadar . The hostel is extremely close to the bus station and the waterfront.
WE RECOMMEND IF YOU WANT TO STAY IN THE OLD TOWN, PLEASE BOOK A HOSTEL IN THAT AREA! IF YOU REQUIRE A TOP RATED HOSTEL WITH GREAT FACILITIES, CLOSE TO THE BUS/TRAIN STATION, WATERFRONT THEN PICK US! (We take pride in our reviews and regard our location rating as great importance to us)
Please don't book here and then give us a bad rating for our location. Thanks.

To the rear of the main bus station you will see a Nissan/Hyundai car dealership on the opposite side of the road. When you are facing the dealership, turn left down Kralja Tvrtka.

Close to 100 meters, you will reach the tennis courts and NEC Cafe. Directly after, turn right on (Dure Marusica). In 20 meters the road splits. Stay left and continue up Milana Sufllaya till you reach the stop junction.
You have now reached our street Jure Skenderbega. You will see the big car park directly in front, little shop on the right, and Gospa Loretska church to the left.

Turn left at this junction (church should be on your right), our hostel is located 200 meters on the left hand side.

Located Near

Located by the waterfront a lovely 20 minute walk to the old town gates. Taxis cost around 20 kuna (out of season) 40 kuna (peak season), from the hostel. If you wish to view our location we can be found on google maps. We encourage people to follow our directions from the bus station as it is the fastest way to get here.
