Green Lizard Hostel




The Review

The Green Lizard Hostel provides the best set of directions of any hostel. If you somehow don't understand them or get lost in the middle of them, just keep going uphill, because the hostel is on the side of hill. This location provides the hostel with a stellar view of the bay and islands around Hvar.

It takes less than ten minutes with a full pack to walk from the ferry landing at Hvar Town, and only a few more from the bus stop to reach the hostel. From the hostel, it is less than five minutes to a grocery store and a very nice, small beach.

The hostel is either new or recently remodeled. Everything from the kitchen, the terrace, and the rooms to the bathrooms is spotless and cleaned daily. The rooms are not overly large, but they are cool and uncrowded, with sufficent toilets/showers for everyone. Internet would be an advantage, but there is a place by the bus stop.

The owners are friendly as are the other guests. They will let you store your luggage for free after you check out if you don't leave until later. If you are only staying one night, they do charge you a small supplement, about ten kunas.

Truly a relaxed hostel, with great location, people, and facilities.

Very well run hostel -- clean, friendly and relaxed
The friendly service was great and the hostel facilities were everything i wanted -- very clean and cleaned regularly throughout the day, secure with individual lockers in dorms and staff who care about providing the best possible service and information to guests. The location is a short walk to centre of town on a hill.

Go there, cheap, clean, and fun.
This is a great hostel. The rooms are new and clean, good showers. Great atmosphere. Vanessa, the owner, can pick you up from the ferry. In the evening everybody eats and drinks together. It feels free. I decided that it's so much fun, I'll stay and work here for a little while.

The Green Lizard was Excellent in all areas. The staff were incredibly nice and accommodating. After Check in they show you where all the important areas in Hvar Town are. If you need to leave your bags for the afternoon, its no problem. The rooms are very clean and showers have hot water. The trip to Hvar town is not far and there are beaches close by. This is hands down the best place to stay in Hvar!

Excellent location, clean, fun with a friendly staff
As perhaps the only hostel in Hvar, Green Lizard could afford to slack off on the little things -- but they don't. Rooms were very clean, as were the bathrooms (very important), and the fact that they had a kitchen was great for those looking to save money by cooking (not a lot of cheap places to eat in Hvar town). Offered a laundry service for a reasonable price and your clothes dry in the sun, the way it's meant to be. While the inside of the hostel was nice, most of the action happens outside, where they have a great terrace facing the sea. Good place to take in some sun and then chill and make friends over a few drinks. There's also a nice picnic table on the other side of the hostel, which is in the shade if you want to get away from the heat. Good location, quick walk to the harbour, easy to find your way around. The way this place is laid out makes it super easy to meet people and hit it off right away. Solo travelers -- you know this is important! Overall, I had an awesome time there -- can't you tell?

  We loved this place, good banter. Sometimes the owners liked us, sometimes they didn't. Close to town centre and you can usually find people to walk back with. They piled extra people on our floor so you felt a bit packed in. The lack of window above the bathroom door meant we heard everything. Overall we would recommend this place and we would return.
