Let’s be honest. Many Zadar hostels do not offer organised activities and are more focused on modern design and amenities.
On the plus side, these top 3 hostels in this guide are all centrally located close to a great nightlife scene in the town’s historic centre. That way you can meet cool people at the hostel and head into town to create your own fun.
Check-In and Check Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.
