Luka's Lodge

We are a very popular Hostel located on Hvar island in Hvar town, just off the coast from Split. We have been open for 30 years and have a wide experience hosting people. We are recommended by travel guides and have fantastic reviews on other booking sites.

Luka the owner is very friendly and will go out of his way to accommodate you with all meals and wine/beer included. He was born and raised in Hvar and can provide you with a rich Croatian cultural experience. You will also have plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful beaches and soak up the beautiful sunshine!

Lukas Lodge was an amazing first Worldpackers experience! I worked every day for a few hours in reception checking guests in and out and explaining things to do on the island. I would also help out with the laundry and general cleaning. You have plenty of time to explore the island and relax at the beach. Thank you to Korana and Luka for being lovely hosts and giving me the opportunity to live in Hvar for the month.

A great first volunteering experience! I arrived at the start of post-season so things were relatively quiet and I had lots of time to explore the beautiful island. Everyone was friendly and I felt welcomed there throughout. The work was never too hard, although sometimes I would’ve preferred an upfront schedule rather than finding out what I was doing on the day. The three meals stated on the profile is actually a staff kitchen available with ingredients - I was often cooked for by the other staff working there so very grateful for that :) thanks everyone for a super month!

Luka's Lodge has possibly been one of the best experiences I have ever had, this year was my second time here and I cannot recommend it enough. This is place is really special and the people are amazing. We are like a family here and to me it really felt like home, I felt so safe and comfortable. The work is nice and chill, there is a lot of communication between the volunteers and the manager with what is expected. Overall I love this place and Luka very much, there will always be a special place in my heart and I will never forget my time spent here and the people I have met along the way.

I enjoyed my experience in Lukas Lodge so much! The work is not hard at all, I was doing housekeeping and reception depending on a shift. Rada, Luka and volunteers are amazing people - you feel like at home with them. The island is beautiful with a lot of beaches and a very rich nightlife. Guests at the hostel are very nice and young, so you can hang out with them and have fun!
Thanks a lot for everything! Miss you already a lot 🥹❤️

O que falar desse mês incrível e Hvar?!
Cheguei aqui como quem chega em um paraíso. Luka é um ser humano incrível e foi a minha família aqui. Além de ter sido um grande anfitrião.
Durante esse mês recebi pessoas incríveis também. Fiz inúmeros amigos e fui MUITO feliz.
O trabalho precisa ser feito, sem dúvidas. E durante a alta estação não é tão simples. Mas tudo vale a pena.
Estou saindo daqui cheias de boas memórias depois de uma temporada incrível.
Espero que mais pessoas possam vivenciar o que eu vivi.
Recomendo um milhão de vezes.
Até a próxima Luka! 💜
