Hi, my name is Sara and I`m the owner of this small but big-hearted hostel called Providenca. I want to make this personal because Providenca was my home when I was just a girl and now I will try my best to make you feel like it`s your home too during your stay in Novalja. I truly hope Providenca team will become your new friend and be a part of amazing memories that you will cherish forever.

Let’s talk about facts and why you should choose us.

We are located in the heart of Novalja, 30 steps from main square „Bazilika“. Surrounded by the town`s finest offering, the hostel is situated in the pedestrian zone and there for you will be able to relax and chill when you aren`t on Zrće party beach. Only a few steps from all bars, restaurants, supermarket, post office, ATMs, money exchange, bus station to Zrće beach, our location is hard to beat.



Our hostel has 10 rooms on 2 floors, 3 bed private (shared bathroom) and 4/6 mixed bed dorms with shared bathrooms.

We also have common space with kitchen were you can prepare your own meals, play some of our board games or get to know new people.
