Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 October 2014

My friend Sophie and I were recommended to stay here by another acquaintance who had been to Luka's previously and we were not disappointed. Travelling in Croatia in October, the hostels were definitely not overrun as they are in the summer months however we still had a fair sized group of people staying at Luka's. He hosted a free dinner (for which he provided the food and beverages) for us so we could get to meet each other had answers to all our questions regarding what to do, how to get places, etc. The rooms were clean and comfortable and there was coffee and fruit prepared for us every morning. Overall a wonderful experience at an incredible location, I'd recommend visiting the Island of Hvar and staying at Luka's in October where the weather and water are both still very warm but the prices are much cheaper and the tourists much less rampant. Just a brilliant trip overall.

My boyfriend and I decided to move our accomodations to Luka's Lodge because we had friends staying here and it was the best decision we made in Hvar. Luka is the most kind and generous man, and he made our stay in Hvar an extremely memorable one. From the free coffee and cookies, to the octopus feast he cooked up for us (which was one of the best meals we have had on our trip so far), Luka is the perfect and most kind host. He even makes his own olive oil and lavender oil, and both are so lovely. They will be the perfect souvenir from our stay here. :)

The rooms are great, beds are comfy, bathrooms and kitchen are very clean and have hot showers. We even had our own personal fridge near our room to store items in.

The location is just a few minutes walk from the main square and a grocery store and is nice and quiet in the evening to give you a break from the social scene that Hvar has to offer.

Stay here. Luka will make your stay in Hvar so incredibly enjoyable. He is a wonderful person and an even better host!

The best of the best of this place is Luka. The room is fair, the bathroom was awful: not very clean and smelly. But the location was easy to find, close to the places we wanted to go and Luka was amazing: helpful, nice, easy going, gave very good suggestions.

Luka's Lodge was our favourite hostel of our trip! We arrived really early in the morning and Luka greeted us with tea and a massive plate of wafers! He showed us the map of Hvar and told us everything we needed to know. He recommended beaches, bars and activities and all of his recommendations were spot on. He gave us loads of advice about the rest of our trip too which was really helpful. Luka is such a character and a very nice guy - he makes everyone feel so welcome and makes such an effort with his guests. We are sad we missed the burger party! He is so funny and interesting and it's no doubt that he is the reason the hostel is such a success!

I messed up and booked the wrong dates but Luka was still able to arrange a great room for us. We stayed in an apartment which was really spacious and clean. The hostel is in a great location and there is plenty to do in Hvar.

We would definitely go back to Luka's Lodge if we visit Hvar again. Thanks Luka!

I stayed at Luka's lodge 3 nights during September 2014. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The staff was friendly and offered me coffee/tea and fruit/cookies whenever I was up on the patio/community area.
One day, Luka took me and a friend to Stari Grad for free with his car, because he had to do some business there anyways. My last night at the hostel, Luka cooked octopus for all the guests of the hostel. It was delicious (!!!!) and how often does it happen that someone asks you to cook octopus for you?? :) The hostel is located only a few minutes by foot from the old town in a nice and quiet area, but easy and quick to get to. Great hostel, highly recommended!!
