The Medieval Meditarranean Garden of St. Lawrence & Restaurant

Couple of important check-in details

NOTE FOR CHECK IN

Dear guests,

we would like to bring your attention to these couple important check-in details.

  1. Our hostel – St. Lawrence (Sv. Lovre in Croatian), operates at two different locations – the hostel building and the St. Lawrence garden. The two locations are within 50 meters from each other. In case we are not at the reception desk when you arrive, we are at the hostel garden – St. Lawrence (Sv. Lovre). Please follow the city directions to the garden (brown directional signs located on the buildings all over town) and find us there.
  2. The hostel entrance door is glass; NOT green. If you find yourself at the green door, please proceed 20 meters further, due west.

Our town of Sibenik is rich in small, cobble stone streets that are sometimes difficult to navigate. Everything is so close, and once you find your way, be assured you will not regret it.

The location is worth 10 out of 10!

Thank you!
