Travel Blogs from Hvar
Since I typed yesterday's blog, I'm back where I should be. It must be the island life, as now I'm at Hvar Island. Or it could be the weather, which has improved from cloudy to sunny skies. Or it could be that I had my own bedroom and bathroom last night. Sometimes it's the little things in life... In the morning I took a wonder around the …
It can be a difficult marina to get a park in if you leave it too late to arrive. On this occasion we arrived early afternoon and found a prk no problem but later that day it was filling up fast especially when a bunch of yachts arrived flying Croatia Yachting Week flags all loaded down with young males and females intent on having a jolly good time. When we arrived last time we were there it was later in the day and ...
... boats. Although the scenery was beautiful we were surprised to find a nudity beach just a couple of hundred meters around the corner and it didn't help that the paddle boat we were using got stuck! We walked up to the fortress and after a little stumble (almost rolled my ankle) we explore the beautiful views of Hvar town. We ended with more cocktails and wine. Great spot ...
... the site. As we approached the entrance there were a few official-looking fortress-type people but no sign of needing to pay so we wandered on in with a group of other people.
With no rain but still overcast skies the view from the fortress looking down over Hvar was the reward for the effort to climb up to the top of the hill. Spectacular!
We took the same photos from as many vantage points as we could find before looking at the prison ...
... at about 11.30 and we took off for the casino next door…we all watched while Brendan bought some gambling chips and had a go on the ‘Black Jack’ table and actually won all his hands and when he lost one…he stopped. Good on him. He then shouted all of us to a drink at the sports bar…onya Brendan!
In the sports bar the ‘American Tennis G.S Women’s Final’ was in full swing and Samantha Stosur was one set up ...
How has this hostel rated in the past?
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.
