Riva Hostel

Located in the heart of Pula's centre and at the famous Pula waterfront. 2016 Tripadvisor.com CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE! Check Tripadvisor tab for more info!

Thank you!!! PARTIES EVERY NIGHT, until Sept 20. 2017.! Events organized by Riva Hostel, The End of the World Productions and Blue Soul LLC (Chicago USA), bringing you the best of Chitown talent! Riva Hostel guests get in for FREE, invite only events! More info, sign up for updates and line up at: www.endoftheworldcroatia.com Welcome to Pula, one of Croatia's most beautiful cities! We are located in Istria, our lovely peninsula, which is the northernmost part of the country. We invite you to explore our natural beaches, fields of lavender and olive trees, mild climate, rich culture and history, cobblestone streets and ancient villages. Located in the heart of Pula's center and at the famous Pula waterfront (Riva), we are a few steps away from the historic Forum and Kandlerova Street, which boasts some of the most impressive Roman architecture in Croatia, as well as a variety of cafes, bars, and shops. Pula's breathtaking Amphitheater ('Arena') is a mere five-minute walk from Riva Hostel, and all of Pula's main attractions are within proximate walking distance. We are also very close to the main bus and train stations, as well as the arriving terminal for all boats and ferries. Both are less than a minute-long walk to where we are located - quite useful if you will be taking a ferry out of Pula to the south Croatian coast early in the morning! Building upon an already established and highly successful hostel business, our main mission is to make your holiday in Pula as comfortable, relaxing and fun as possible. Our staff are energetic and highly dedicated travelers who strive to cater to the unique needs of each guest. It is our firm belief that going this extra mile is what makes a hostel experience above average, and takes at least some of the stress out of traveling and spending time in a foreign country! We want you to feel at home in our hostel. Located inside a quiet Austro-Hungarian courtyard building, our newly renovated space consists of 4 large and spacious sleeping rooms with tall ceilings, a common area with TV, free internet computer station and WI-FI throughout the property. Two of the rooms have their own newly renovated bathrooms with spacious shower stalls. There is a large kitchen available for use. You are welcome to help yourself to breakfast items in the morning (included in the price), as well as coffee and tea. We also have all kitchen appliances and utensils necessary for cooking and meals. We are equipped with brand new facilities, including air conditioning, security lockers, free internet use + WI-FI access, free laundry service, a spacious kitchen area, TV and DVD access, and many other state-of-the-art features that we are imperative for a modern and convenient hostel experience. Each room in out hostel has very tall ceilings, which makes sleeping with more people in the room quite comfortable! Each room has its own AC unit. Located inside a quiet courtyard, the commotion and traffic outside is not heard at all, even though our location is in the heart of the city center. Each member of our three-person staff has had extensive experience with travel in his/her life. We are all more than happy to share our experiences, recommend travel ideas, provide useful information, and help you clarify and plan the remainder of your travels. *English, Spanish, and Croatian/Bosnian/Serbian are spoken here. :) * Please contact us for additional information: E-mail: [email protected] Tel: +385-95-574-2744 (Jasmina Makota) or +385-95-827-0243 (Skender Makota) THANK YOU!
