My friend and I loved staying at Nela's house. There was an entire floor of rooms that were rented. Nela and her family lived above and below but never were we bothered and I felt like we had our own home there. She is an artist in town and her brother owns the gallery in the main square. We stayed at Nela's for 3 nights and had a fantastic room with great decor, a private terrace and the most unbelievable views of the Pakleni Islands. The walk into town was kind of long and we got lost on our way back a few times but I actually enjoyed it because it was such a pretty walk (about 15- 20 minutes) along the sea.
Nela was fantastic and so was the view. I would go back today if I could!
Normal camping, not overcrowded, very close to the sea, normal prices, 15 minutes walk from town (Jelsa) what else should I say?
The sea within 1 minute walk. Or 2 if you start from the lavatories and you are very tired :)
The only budget accommodation is private rooms, and even these are expensive. Pelegrini Tours can make arrangements, (May1 ý June 26 singles 97kn, doubles 124kn) 30% surcharge for stays under 3 nights. Many locals hang around the bus station offering rooms for less. If all else fails, try your luck following sobe (room) signs down the waterfront from the main square.
The Tourist Office set us up with a private room owned by an Italian speaking family. They lived on the ground floor and we rented the holiday flat above. We had two bedrooms ,two bathrooms ( a godsend for those hangover poo issues) and two balconies ,which were mostly used for lying about on.
The fact that you can sit on a wicker chair and watch the neighbours fix their fishing boat.
I didn't stay here but the location can't be beat. Don't expect luxurious accomdations at any of the hotels - and to be honest, you won't be spending much time in your room. Best bet - rent a room from a local.
You can easily find accomodation in hotel and private accomodation. Usually when ferry arrive, you can meet people on the port whice are offering rooms. But i have to warn that in period 15.07. - 15.08. it is better to have reservation. Than is full of people and can be hard to find room. Also, there is croatian touristic agency on piazza which can help you or in travel agency ATLAS (here you have to realize that price han be more than double for the room).
Rooms are clean, and hosts are very firendly. Most of people on Hvar speak italian language, but they are trying to speak and other languages.
You have your own room and usually host give you in use kitchen. Bathroom can be common, and sometimes in little bit expensive appartmants, you can have your own bathroom.
Towels and bed linen are changed offen.
The best accomodations for who visit Hvar is the private accomodation because it don't coast a lot and it's easy to find in over season. On the island it is full of private accomodations and their prices are between the 11 and the 19 EURO to person for a night.
In Croatia, common practice seems to be that all types of locals 'swarm' buses, ferries, and taxies arriving from out of town, offering rooms in their vacant houses or bedrooms. This is all fun and games, just pick someone that looks respectable and hop in or on whatever they're driving. You can bargain the price pretty well, especially in the off season or late at night. I always strive for a 25% decrease via bargaining, it makes me feel good.
The place I had in Hvar had an awesome balcony with a great view of the beach and sunsets each night. I also had a huge bed, my own key, and a mini kitchen for cooking, oh and a bathroom too! Only cost me 10 bucks.
