I gave them 100%, not because each of the 6 categories was perfect, but because the overall experience has been amazing, mostly because the lady is so warm and welcoming and makes us feel at home. The breakfast is great. Most important for us we have a great wifi connection in our room. And our room is practically overhanging the sea. So we've extended our 2 nights to about a week. If you're coming from Dubrovnik by bus, there must be a better way than going to Split first (1.5 hour detour).

hostel adria is great, it is worth a visit. it's outside of split, 30min by bus, but worth it though it is directly layed at the ocean. when you speak german, it is easy to deal with the grandmother, because the family lived in germany for a while.if not, she calls her granddaughter for any questions, so she tells you in english. the stay was even better cause we could help the family olive picking and had a great bbq later. we can definitely recommend this place to everybody!

A great cozy place to stay, the staff are way too nice, always smiling. The place is absolutely clean, everything looks new and well equipped. The ocean is in front of the reception and just across the street from the rooms. 100% recomended.

We had a very relaxed time here. Staff was very friendly and helpful! The location was a bit out of town as stated on hostelworld, however beaches were close to here and bus stops. Had an awesome time and would recommend it to everyone!

The Hostel is literally by the beach. Sonya is great. The rooms are new and clean. Great common room to meet other travellers. Overall I had a great time and would def comeback again

I have nothing bad to say about this place. It's a little way from Split on the bus, but you wouldn't really want to stay in Split anyway. Run by a beautiful family who really looked after us while we were there. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

Definitely the best hostel i ever stayed at. Mira is the best cook in all croatia (Ohrstöpsel). Everyone was really helpful and hospitable. Special thanks to Milan for bringing us to Split, so we could go to Mostar. Nikola (Nicolai) is really an attraction ;). Everyone should come and visit us in the north, we would be really happy to see you again! We will come back... for sure! This is for Ante: Ej was geht ab? Liebe Grüße und noch mal vielen Dank, Steffi und Sören

Fantastic. Real hospitality. Very generous hosts. Spacious rooms, great common area, excellent internet. We enjoyed a couple of great bbqs together with the family's wine, local grappa and vegetables from the garden. The sea is at the door. You'd be nuts to stay anywhere else.

This hostel is freaking paradise! I have been traveling around for a while and there's no hostel to compare with Adria. You are welcomed with open arms, the place got that "home-feeling", and once you get here you don't want to leave. This is definitely the place to stay while in Croatia!

Bajnice is a tiny cosy village that lies 9 miles south of Split, central Dalmatia's tourist center. Further to the south of Bajnice, Omis is located, which makes Bajnice’s location optimal for active tourists, backpackers, cyclers as well as for holiday-makers who seek an opportunity to spend their vacation at the sea, far away from daily rush.
Until recently Bajnice was a typical Croatian tiny fishing village, but today, new hostels, apartments and houses are mixed with the old cottages and they seem to complement each other in harmony.
Dalmatia, the region where Bajnice is located, is characterised by an amusingly high number of sunny days. According to the statistics this number is as high as 315 a year! The sunny weather turns a vacation into a row of unforgettable days, full of sunlight and warmth. You can enjoy the sunlight even in December.
Bajnice occupies the part of the Adriatic coast that is dotted with small bays and isolated beaches. Many houses here have concrete swimming areas. And so does the Hostel Adria.
Adriatic sea is warm, even in winter its surface temperature is about 44 °F . And in summer the surface of the sea reaches a very high temperature, of up to 71 °F to 77 °F . Sometimes even up to 80 °F ! Of course, it explains why Adriatic sea is so popular among tourists from different regions of the world.
Backpackers' beloved routes
Backpackers adore Bajnice. And the main reason is that distances both to Split or Omis are perfect for a one-day walking tour.
Good place for family holidays
Bajnice is a quiet village with a few restaurants and a grocery store. From here you can quickly get to Krilo Jasenice (about 2 Miles), with its great park and a playground for children.
One of the advantages of Bajnice are its warm-hearted and sociable people. Although not everybody here may speak your language, you will be surprised how easy it is to come to understanding with them.
If you decide to spend your vacation in Bajnice, you will not have any communication problems. There is a post office here. Mobile communication and internet have turned Bajnice into an integral part of the modern world. Every evening, after another great day in Bajnice, you can share your impressions with your online-friends.
