I really enjoyed staying here but I wouldn't recommend it if you like more than basic facilities.
If you're happy for basic but clean facilities then I wouldn't stay anywhere else on Hvar. The owner Luka is what really makes this place special. He can't do enough to make sure that your stay on Hvar is enjoyable as possible. One of the nights he stayed he organised a BBQ of locally caught fresh fish and it tasted fantastic. He collected us from the ferry port and took us back when we were leaving. His recommendations of what to do and where to eat were great.
The room we have was shared between 4 of us - we were travelling together. There were 4 single beds in the room which meant there was little room for anything else but it was all we needed. The bathroom was right next to our room so no problem there either. The kitchen facilities were outside which was fine as it was good weather when we were there but would't have been that enjoyable if we had had bad weather.
I would definately go back.

After a while we boarded the coach and headed off across the island to a spot Gasper was taking us for lunch. We passed lots of little farms with vines, potatoes and other veggies growing in terraced plots among millions of rocks that had been stacked up by the farmers for centuries. ...
... Riley and I picked up big rocks and threw them into the water and made a big splash and tried to wet each other.
We drove to a different town. To get to the town we had to go through a tunnel under ground. It was like a cave. It was awesome.
We walked 570 meters to get to a big rock, and then we walked 370 metres more to get to a little beach.
It was fun hiking and climbing over the ...
... of islands along the Dalmatian coast of Croatia and most are uninhabited.
We tendered ashore about 9:30 for a short walking tour of the island. The island is very pretty and built along the hillsides so there are steps up most of the side streets. There is a fortress built on the hill overlooking the town, called "spagnola" because it was built by the Spanish mercenaries who were here to protect the island on behalf of ...
... Split. We arrived at hotel Peristil which is within the walls of the Roman Palace. In our room 204 we even had part of the original Palace walls exposed and we had a view overlooking the Peristil. We had a delicious entree of grilled Calamari/squid at one of the restaurants on the Promenade and then went to one of the restaurants within the Dioclecetian's Palace walls to have some Pizza and ...
