We have perfect accommodation for you – so you can truly enjoy your summer of music, sun, beautiful sea, party and meeting new people.

Big Yellow House

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, the BYH soon became a local institution for travellers visiting Novalja . We offer something different for our backpackers and holiday makers that you cannot find elsewhere in Novalja. When staying at the BYH you will experience a unique atmosphere, friendly staff, live performances in our 24/7 bar or relax and chill out in our spacious garden.

Small Yellow House

SMALL YELLOW HOUSE is the (small and yellow) house next door which is calmer and more chilled than the BYH. It is an extension of the Big Yellow House with it's own kitchen, garden and dorm rooms with balconies.

We see it as an extension of the Big Yellow House, so our guests there are more than welcome to come join us at the BYH to chill, cook, hang out or party as one big yellow family.

The Small Yellow House has:

  • its own kitchen
  • WIFI
  • breakfast included
  • an outdoor terrace and balcony in every room
  • It’s a little bit more chilled at night as we have neighbours next door so we try to keep it calm after 11PM
