Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)

We somewhat often came to swim here in this little bay of Valsaline because the rocky coast suited us with its diversity and proximity of pine forest. Only recently we stayed in the hostels since it wasn't the warmest day in late April, but after sleeping here for one night we also changed our mind and decided sleeping outside is better. In tent of course and in camp of other place near Pula.

Back to hostel: there's public bus connecting it to centre or you can walk some 3 kilometers till the historic district.
Their dorms are small with few beds in each room (ours had 6) which hadn't been any warmer than outside in Aprile which was main reason we left (and saved money). I guess their common bathroom must be too small when all beds are full, no doubtly in summer when it's peak season. Plus they need some fixing here; only one shower unit in the floor (with few dorms) plus altogether real tight place.
I guess when also dorm is full there is really little space for your luggage and wet towels but then again that's hostel.
Breakfast end by 10 am which is early if you went to sleep late.

Maybe try some their bungalows for more privacy (and more money). Or stay in tent, they have small camp in their compounds and you can take shower within common bathrooms outside.

Unique Quality: Their best place is the common terrace on the open air where breakfast are served and after it, you can buy yourself lunch and beer in the season. It gets full of of visitors especially in summer, we kinda liked drinking coffee and beer there as it's quite lively place.

Access to water is easy, from concrete platform into gravel beach, then it slowly deepens. No urchins here and no jellyfishes ... hehe. The first ones come later with other sea fauna when you're already swimming and it is too deep to touch the ground with feet.

Staff is helpful and has lots of fresh first hand information willing to share with their guests. They can also book you with trips or reserve a visit to Brioni National Park.

There are few parking places behind their fence but I guess most will park outside when it's main season.

Directions: 3 km from centre
