We stayed at Green Lizard and had the best time ever. All the staff deserve a pay rise as they entertained us even on their days off! We were helped out a lot with enquiries and the staff were 10/10. Facilities were good, as you'd expect for the price, the big outdoor area made socialising easy and the evenings were... More

A friend and I spent 4 nights at Green Lizard Hostel. The location is great, 5 minutes from Hvar town, however we found the hostel very disappointing. The rooms were basic and absolutely boiling hot which made sleeping uncomfortable. The sheets weren't particularly clean and the bathrooms were not great. I would not go back. The staff didn't seem that... More

Me and my friend went there for 3 days and had a blast! Met a lot of people from al over the world and made a lot of great friends, both among the guests and staff! The only thing I missed was AC in the rooms would have made sleeping of the hangover much easier!

We've stayed in a multitude of hostels on our trip across Europe. We've stayed in some bad ones, but we've also stayed in some pretty good ones. The Green Lizard was definitely one of the best. We really enjoyed the sense of community, not only between others staying at the hostel, but also the staff. All were helpful and polite,... More

No air con. psycho neighbors who think playing kids music early in the am is fun......ouch. No chance to sleep in after getting in from a big one. There are better places to stay with more friendly staff.

I had an amazing stay at GL, it's seriously chill and relaxing. Cooking meals in the sun and just relaxing on the bean bags with other guests is fantastic. The rooms are nice, decent size and clean bathrooms, It's a few minutes walk from the main square and shops, but still nice and quiet when you need to sleep! Great... More
