On an island known as the 'Ibiza of Croatia' - achingly cool bars and golden sandy beaches, budget accommodation is hard to come by. Step forward, The Green Lizard Hostel. Fifteen minutes uphill walk from the ferry port, you a rewarded by a spectacular outdoor patio where an honest bar of cool beer awaits. As the sun goes down, make use of the outdoor kitchen and BBQ area whilst enjoying a pre drinking session before heading to party the night away in paradise on the hostel run nights out.
We had a fantastic week in Hvar, which has earned the reputation as the St Tropez of Croatia.
Some info that i would have found useful/interesting before going: Its reputation is accurate - it is fun and fashionable, and the price of eating and drinking is more comparable to western European cities than other parts of Croatia/other towns on Hvar island.
Hvar town is beautiful but very busy in July and August (although if you want to party then this is great!).
If sandy beaches are your thing, then Hvar probably isn't. The beaches are either pebbles or large rocks (can be uncomfortable).
There are sea urchins! Buy some rubber shoes.
Snorkelling is great, definitely worth investing in a snorkel kit.
