AIRPORT AND BEACH DISCOUNT TRANSFER AVAILABLE - Cheaper than TAXI or a BUS! Email us after booking for info! Featuring 6 x SEAVIEW rooms, facing the Adriatic Sea and fishing boats 20m away from your window! Located in the heart of Pula's centre and at the famous Pula waterfront (Riva), we are a few steps away from the historic Forum and Kandlerova Street, which boasts some of the most impressive Roman architecture in Croatia, as well as a variety of cafes, bars, and shops. Pula's breathtaking Amphitheatre ('Arena') is a mere five-minute walk from Riva Hostel, and all of Pula's main attractions are within proximate walking distance. Located inside a quiet Austro-Hungarian courtyard building, our newly renovated space consists of many large and spacious sleeping rooms, a huge rooftop terrace with lounge chairs and a bar - great meeting point for our guests! In addition, we offer a common area with TV, free internet computer station and Wi-Fi throughout the property. Each room in our hostel has very tall ceilings, which makes sleeping with more people in the room quite comfortable! Each room has its own AC unit. Some of the rooms have their own newly renovated bathrooms with spacious shower stalls inside the room, while the rest of the hostel uses a common shower area. In all, there are 13 toilets and 9 showers available at any time! There are three different kitchen areas available for use. You are welcome to help yourself to simple breakfast items in the morning (included in the price), as well as coffee and tea. We also have all kitchen appliances and utensils necessary for cooking and preparing anything from simple meals to complete dinner and lunch for the groups. Our staff is energetic and highly dedicated to the needs of each and every guest. It is our firm belief that going this extra mile is what makes a hostel experience above average, and takes at least some of the stress out of travelling and spending time in a foreign country! We want you to feel at home in our hostel. Each member of our three-person staff has had extensive experience with travel in his/her life. We are all more than happy to share our experiences, recommend travel ideas, provide useful information, and help you clarify and plan the remainder of your travels. English, Spanish, and Croatian are spoken here. Please read our Things to Note below before booking: - Check-in: AFTER 14:00 (2pm).

During this cleaning time, we kindly ask that the hostel be vacant, especially during the high season, so that facilities can be cleaned to the highest of sanitary standards that we aim for!
