When we arrived at the hostel we were greeted warmly by the owner and the staff. The room was clean and there were plenty of plugs so that everyone could charge their phones if they needed. The bathrooms were clean and the kitchen was easily accessible. They held a burrito night which got a lot of the guests together socialising....

We booked this hostel based on the photos and reviews that we read on trip advisor/hostelworld. On arrival we were told which room we were in by one of the sisters, when we went upstairs the other sister said it had not been cleaned and then went in to 'clean it'. After two minutes she came back out and said...

I spent 3 nights here before going back to split .The hostel is really social. They have their own bar and the staff are really nice and relaxed , it all feels chilled and quite homey. Decent nights sleep and you can cook your own food so no problems there. Great hostel and one of the best I've stayed in...

This has been the best hostel I've stayed in. Everything about the area was explained on arrival, the place was clean, spacious and the staff were always enthusiastic about helping you with anything you wanted to do. The common areas included hammocks and bean bags and an outdoor kitchen and table. This made it so easy to meet people and...

I give the place an average rating because it had nice views and nice guests. Overall, had a great time, but this isn't a hostel that cares about the travelers. It cares about making money in these busy months. I understand why they can change a lot per night, but I don't know why they don't allow guests to bring...

Stayed here one night in a 5 bed mixed dorm. Clean, centralish and cheap. Communal areas which we didn't use but looked fine. Slightly out of town but I think most cheaper hostels on Hvar are. Staff on reception were really friendly and free wifi worked well.

Stayed here for 2 nights in mid September. The hostel was quite quiet during my stay with only a few other guests but I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The dorm was fairly spacious but annoyingly if you were on the bottom bunk you couldn't sit up on your bed without bumping your...

The staff at Green Lizard Hostel are very nice and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The hostel itself is nice; there are outside sociable areas and an outside kitchen. Our dorm was upstairs and was small with no air con so it was EXTREMELY hot. I'd say that this was the only negative part about...

The Green Lizard is a lovely place to stay; the staff is excellent—very friendly and helpful. It’s far enough from the main square to not be too noisy, but close enough to be convenient. It’s close to several beaches, and once you know how to get there, you’ll have no problem finding it again. However, finding it that first time...

I stayed 3 nights in August in the Green Lizard hostel. The staff is adorable and very helpful. They gave me good advices and helped me when I had to book a ferry ticket to Korcula (at this time of the year, ferries are getting full very quickly!). Also as I was in a rush the last day, I had...
