About BYH

The Big Yellow House first opened on island Pag in 2011. We were the first and continue to be the best and most unique hostel experience in Novalja. Owned and managed by two friends who originally met on the island, one a long time traveler and the other a local musician, the Big Yellow House soon became a local institution for travelers visiting Novalja.
We offer something different for our backpackers and holiday makers that you cannot find in the rest of Novalja - comfortable beds, amazing waterfront views, balconies to enjoy breathtaking sunsets, large kitchen, common area and large garden for relaxing and in the peak season a 24 hour bar playing chilled tunes to rocking beats. The Big Yellow House is located only 50 metres from the bus stop to party central at Zrce Beach, 50 metres from the local beach where you can relax and swim your days away and a 200 metre walk to the the centre of Novalja. Everything you need is on our doorstep. The Big Yellow House team knows exactly what fellow travelers need whilst away from home - come and share in the experience - the BYH is the place to be when visiting Novalja.
