The Lazy Monkey Hostel

The Lazy is the sister property to the famous Drunken Monkey Hostel. It is the latest little gem to arrive in Zadar. We are unique, homely and supply comfortable accommodation offering both dormitories and private rooms.

The hacienda styled building is designed for relaxation and has plenty of space for fun and shenanigans. Our vibrant terraced area has plenty of low seated furniture, beanbags and hammocks to chillax and socialize. We have hookah pipes and eclectic music for everyone's taste. Guests have the use of the huge courtyard. We also have a large upstairs terrace with eating areas and a sizable secure car park.

We are foreign globetrotting owners that have built a team of seasoned travelers and local staff that are the foundations of this fantastic property.

We are minutes walk to the best waterfront locations where we all go cliff jumping together and not forgetting a beer or two at the local tequila sunrise bar. A fun hostel and also a place for you to kick back for a few days, The Lazy Monkey Property is the home away from home.

Entertaining nights in and exciting nights out are also on offer. A calendar of activities at The Lazy Monkey include, food evenings, regular group BBQ's, games and quiz nights. Feel free to light up the BBQ yourself or use our huge catering facilities. You won't find a property kitchen quite like it.

Zadar offers the perfect short break with activities and sites for every type of traveler: beautiful rocky coast line, stunning scenery, sparkling aquamarine waters, breath-taking sunsets and three National Parks nearby.

Guests have their own free lockers to use, power bars, air conditioning and fans. All private rooms have a private fridge for themselves as well as tea and coffee maker for you to use. The premises is also protected by CCTV cameras for their own safety.
