To the rear of the main bus station you will see a Nissan/Hyundai car dealership on the opposite side of the road. When you are facing the dealership, turn left down Kralja Tvrtka.

Close to 100 meters, you will reach the tennis courts and NEC Cafe. Directly after, turn right on (Dure Marusica). In 20 meters the road splits. Stay left and continue up Milana Sufllaya till you reach the stop junction.
You have now reached our street Jure Skenderbega. You will see the big car park directly in front, little shop on the right, and Gospa Loretska church to the left.

Turn left at this junction (church should be on your right), our hostel is located 200 meters on the left hand side.
We are located in Arbanasi just a short walk to the old city. Cabs can be arranged for very cheap ( about 3 - 4 Euro) if you don't feel like walking to the old city. Although we are not right in the heart of the city, we are a few minutes walk to the sea and nice seafront walk that takes about 15 minutes to get to the entrance to the old city. We are also a 5 minute walk from the bus station.
City tax (7kn per person per night) is not included and must be payed on top! The Drunken Monkey Hostel has an age restriction of 18+. Due to high bank rates it is in your best interest to settle your balance owed in cash. Should you have to use your credit card for payment a 5% charge will be added to your total. During our season in Dalmatia, especially festival time, most Croatian hostels usually have a young vibrant crowd, who produce fun and noise for which we try to maintain the best we can. Our reviews tell you we are normally pretty good at this. But you must be of the understanding, that this is part of Drunken Monkey Hostel life in and around our operating months. Our reception is open during the hours of 8.30 am - 10.30 pm. Arrival outside of these times requires an e mail directly to the hostel through our webpage. Please contact us for more information. Guest reminder: We are not a hotel and we do not offer red carpet service, however big hearts and smiles are here in abundance. Please, If you have never stayed in a hostel, do your research so you know what to expect. We are not in the Old Town!!. We are 20 minute walk away in a glorious part of Zadar . The hostel is extremely close to the bus station and the waterfront.
