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.

Must-Read Hostel Info

This property has specific Terms & Conditions.

The Drunken Monkey Hostel has an age restriction of 18+.
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

When you arrive at the bus station, walk out to the taxi rank and make a left. The street you are on should be Kralja Tvrtka.

In 100 meters (2 streets) turn right. The street is Dure Marusica. In 15 meters the road splits. Stay left (on Milana Suflaya) and continue up this road until you reach until you reach Jure Skenderbega.

You will see the Gospa Loretska church in front of you.

Turn left and our hostel is located 60 meters further, on the left hand side.

Note: We also suggest clicking on the google map on the to ensure you follow the directions correctly. If you are coming from the Zadar airport by bus, get off at the main bus station and follow the above directions to the hostel. We can also arrange for a taxi to pick you up. Please contact us for further information.

Located Near

We are located in Arbanasi just a short walk to the old city. Cabs can be arranged for very cheap ( about 3 - 4 Euro) if you don't feel like walking to the old city. Although we are not right in the heart of the city, we are a few minutes walk to the sea and nice seafront walk that takes about 15 minutes to get to the entrance to the old city. We are also a 5 minute walk from the bus station, so we suggest you do not take a cab to the hostel from there.
