The Drunken Monkey Hostel

Jure Kastriotica Skenderbega 21, Zadar, Zadar, Croatia


Set in Arbanasi a charming part of Zadar only 20 minutes walk along the waterfront to the old city gates. Why should you stay outside the old town, well, quite simply, we offer what the other hostels do not. A friendly local community and lots of common space for the hostel. We have a decked garden complete with sun loungers, hammock and splash pool. A bar with lounge facilities and movie projector. We also have a peaceful sun terrace. We offer a secure hostel with door coded entrance to a private courtyard, large reception offering trips to the the National Parks and Island information as well as free guest computer We are a clean, comfortable and secure hostel, located in the safe neighborhood of Arbanasi. Ideally situated minutes away from the main bus station, and the scenic Kolovare promenade; nothing Zadar has to offer is out of arm's reach. PLEASE NOTE: We are NOT in the Old Town! We are able to offer you all the facilities noted above for that very reason. We do have a bar that can get a little exciting and noisy at times, however, this is well regulated by us. We are definitely a hostel that offers fun and excitement as well as relaxation. Come see for yourselves.....

Spent 3 days here while visiting Zadar. As advised it is a full 20 minutes from the old city( walking). Parking is at the church parking area before you get to the hostel. The roads are narrow and...


Beside the main bus station is a Nissan/Hyundai car dealership. When you are facing the dealership, turn left down Kralja Tvrtka. In about 100 meters you will reach the tennis courts and NEC Cafe. Turn right (Dure Marusica). In 25 meters the road splits. Stay left and continue up Milana Sufllaya until you reach Jure Skenderbega. You will see the Gospa Loretska church in front of you. Turn left and our hostel is located 200 meters on the left hand side.
