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.

During our season in Dalmatia, especially festival time, most Croatian hostels usually have a young vibrant crowd, who produce fun and noise for which we try to maintain the best we can. Our reviews tell you we are normally pretty good at this. But you must be of the understanding, that this is part of Drunken Monkey Hostel life in and around our operating months.
Our reception is open during the hours of 8.30am - 10.30pm. Arrival outside of these times requires an e mail directly to the hostel through our webpage. Please contact us for more information.
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
