This hostel is a great price and also good location! Brilliant staff and very friendly, made us all feel very welcome! Curfew is at 11pm but this did not affect us as members of the staff came with us and we had very fun nights out. I am with a group of friends travelling around Croatia and Hvar has been...

Pleasant and helpful staff. Lovely relaxing environment. Rooms and general facilities in good clean condition. Really good place to meet new people as well. There's a curfew on drinking at the hostel at 11pm, but that's the only downside really. Really enjoyable stay.

Difficult to find a hostel in Hvar with fair price but The Green Lizard is one of them. Stayed there for one night only as there was a festival in Hvar, I couldn't book two consecutive nights. It located up the hill. So be prepared. It took around 15 to 20 mins walking from the pier. Went there a day...

Hvar is very expensive but the Green Lizard is affordable and quiet. It isn't the easiest place to find and the alleyways all look the same. The hostel is located high up, there are many many stairs to climb. I would say this hostel isn't close to the Hvar strip. The kitchen is outside which wasn't great as it rained...

This is a brilliant hostel and everyone is so friendly! The staff organize trips down to Hula Hula, a beach bar and then also bring you out to bars later on at night. The seating area and kitchen outside is a great place to meet other guests too. It has a cool vibe with hammocks and beanbags. I would definitely...

The people who work at the green lizard are quite amazing. Tonina is a sweetheart. When I didn't come home one night because I was out with friends, she personally emailed me I make sure I was alright. They know all the guests who are there and they are super friendly and helpful. The people staying there are young, fun...

Place is buzzin' younger crowd and everyone sound. Jessie is the manager very easy going and will help you out with everything, another one the workers Emma is class. BBQ's and "Juicy Boxes" get the place hopin' and then the manager will take you out to bars. 10/10

The green lizard was a home away from home for me. This hostel's relaxed environment, along with the personable help there, made me feel like a part of the family. The whole hostel would eat and drink together before going out to on the night! Overall an amazing experience.
