The New Riviera
There are two kinds of hostels in Croatia. The “Official" youth hostels, are run by the Croatian Youth Hostel Association (HFHS) and the "private" hostels are run as small local businesses. Hostels are an excellent alternative for solo travellers because like the visitors can avoid the "single supplement" imposed in all hotels and much private accommodation. Also, it's so easy to meet a travelling companion in a hostel. Couples and small groups however, will nearly always do better renting a room or apartment, unless of course you're looking for the kind of ambience only a convivial youth hostel can provide. Prices start from €15.50 for a dorm bed including breakfast and a bit more for those hostels that offer singles and doubles.
