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.

Huge day of travel this past 24 hours...6 hours and 3 train changes from Vernazza to the port town of Ancona (actually 4 train changes we got on the wrong train at Parma but fortunately could get off at the first stop and reconnected with the train we had actually booked on!) in my haste ...lost my hat! My goal had been to keep it until Croatia! Ancona is a "typical port town" however as we explored more we found some very ...
... of what would end up being a big problem for our group. Our boat had to skip our final swim stop and head straight for the city of Dubrovnik. On top of this, several of us had contracted pretty bad colds throughout the week which persist today and have resulted in many visits to the pharmacy.
For our final night, whilst everyone recovered, Tom, Phil and I sought out a cinema to watch the recently released Guardians of ...
... all) and downpour just as we are boarding the ferry, this was already making me nervous for a rocky 50 minutes ahead. Paulie on the other hand just wanted to get on board out the rain and find a comfy seat to snooze in!
So it was a little rocky to start with and the morning yoghurt nearly came up to say hi to all the other passengers, but after a while the catamaran got into full pelt and the rockings ...
