About Me

What's app # +385 99 4945 085 (Ben, they call me Dean) and +4915224903023 (Steffi)
Bought a four story home on the sea in Croatia in 2002 and in 2016 I've decided to turn it into a hostel and live a life outside the system. We accept requests for 1 or 2 nights and maybe longer once we have been introduced.


I'm from Lubbock, Texas, and my fiancé is from Munich, Germany. Prefer to be on the road, but when we can't we love the road to come to us through travelers here at Hostel Dalmatia.
