Myself and five other boys recently stayed at The Green Lizard on Hvar Island in mid-June. The hostel itself is located a short walk from the Pier and main town (5 minutes) perched on the side of a hill providing the excellent outdoor facilities with stunning views of the ocean and nearby islands. The staff were knowledgable, approachable and very... More

The staff at Green Lizard were awesome. Our room was very clean, and we were given clean sheets and towels upon arrival. My only complaint was that the wifi came in and out which was very frustrating. However, the staff tried to help as much as possible, and even let my friend use their ethernet cord when he had an...

Our stay there was short but sweet. The staff was always ready to help and also a lot of fun to hang out with. But dudes, fix your router! :D

Green Lizard, although a nice hostel to stay at, didn't once clean our room/bathroom, or change our towels or sheets for the 5 days we were there. The female event coordinator that works there's is the rudest person ever!

I loved green lizard. It was clean, the staff were friendly and helpful. It had an outdoor kitchen. It's close to town if you want to party, and it has bean bags if you just want to relax. the only issue was the wifi. It would cut out all the time and it was slow. Hopefully they replace the router... More

We had a wonderful private room, the Balcony room. It had a beautiful view of Hvar and the islands that surround it. The people who ran the hostel were very nice and very accommodating. Everything was very clean and comfortable. The only problem were the people that were staying next to us were very noisy the night before our early... More
