Loved this place! As long as you know what you're getting into, you'll have a great time. Its a family home as well as a hostel, and feels lived in. Some people think it feels dirty, but it's perfectly sanitary. I had missed a bus out of town and just needed one extra night, so the location literally across the street from the main station was ideal for me!
The place is Ok with a good location near bus station. Clean and free towel.
Anna (Anchi) and her son were very pleasant, helpful and friendly hosts. Their home is lovely and the apartments have plenty of privacy and roominess. The outside back area feels secluded and peaceful. There are scenic hills and foliage abound. It feels like home away from home and not a typical hostel/dorm environment. Once accustomed to the transit service, which runs frequently on the main road, traveling to the old city of Dubrovnik is very straight-forward. I would definitely stay again !!

it is relaxing for me to stay there, i like the yard and balcony, as well as the kitchen. it is very near the main bus station, just go out station and cross the road, turn to the left and follow the road two minutes. the owner is very nice, she allowed me to stay until the afternoon, i feel very relaxed there.
I only stayed for one short night so I didn't get to experience the hostel fully, however it was right by the bus station which was perfect for me as I had an early flight and being so close to the bus station made my life easier.
Nice place, even though I wouldn't call it a hostel. It is more like staying in the guest room of the family, including the advantages and drawbacks.
Great location if you want to stay right by the main bus station! Super friendly staff, this hostel felt like I was staying in someone's home which was really comforting and nice. Probably a 20 minute bus from old town though!
This was a great guest house! It has more of a guest house feel than a hostel, but that being said there is a really nice common room area and garden where it's easy to meet people if you are travelling alone or the backpacker type. It's very close to the bus station and port and easy to get around to Old Town or to check out other spots. The owner is amazing though! A very sweet lady! The facilities are also very nice, big bathroom, nice kitchen! I would definitely stay here again!
Ana the owner is a wonderful lady who made me feel instantly welcome and gave me lots of advice on the city. The hostel is around a 10 min bus ride from old city as well as being close to ferry/bus terminals/beaches around the corner. Place was spotless and tidy, however shower head attachment was broken so you had to hold it by hand. The place draws a mixed crowd so defs no youth hostel but everyone was lovely but not great for meeting people as a solo traveller.
The most amazing time and the most amazing host! Thank you so much!
The hostel is really near the bus station (just turn right and you'll be there soon). Municipal buses drive very often to the old town, but it also takes just a nice walk by the coast to get there. The hostel is very good value for you money. It's actually more like apartments, than a hostel.
If I could move to Dubrovnik and live in Anchi Guesthouse with the wonderful host Ana... I would! My stay here was amazing. Ana is so kind and helpful, and the facilities are really great. The atmosphere is chill and is a nice break from the hectic tourism of the old town. Be prepared to walk half an hour or take a bus to the old town, but it is nice to see the city along the way. Really close to the bus station, ferry, grocery store and morning market. Do yourself a favor and stay here!
Anna, the owner of the guesthouse is by far the best host that I have ever had! She did absolutely everything to make our stay in Dubrovnik amazing! She is warm, friendly, shares interesting stories and is such great company! The guesthouse is very comfortable, the beds are great, there are outlets to charge up everywhere, the place is very clean, there is a cozy backyard to have some nice food. It is literally a second home! Everything was immaculate! I love this place all because of Anna!
Nice staff speak basic English. the lady is great. The kitchen had everything but it didn't always work. Ants all over the kitchen, and toilet water went all over the floor when you flushed. Met nice people though. You can get the bus to old town for 30kuna day pass. Wasn't really an issue. 1 minute from the bus station and port! Which is awesome! With a giant supermarket next door
It was a distinctly average place to stay. It was not value for money, however by Dibrovnik standards the price was probably ok. We stayed in a private Room. Damp had obviously settled in the walls... Could see and smell it. The fan helped tho. Good bathroom, kitchenette with stove, sink and fridge, one saucepan, no kettle. Half the staff were quite nice. Great location right next to bus and ferry terminal. To the old town costs abt 15 kaunas.
Very nice older lady who helps with everything ! From directions and busses to recommending good nearby restaurants and beaches ! Very good stay, would stay again.
Nice little family home type place. Location only average as it is far away from old town but ten mins on bus. I liked it as I wanted to be near bus station which it is over road from! Nice social living room/kitchen and owners leave you too it.
Lovely family run hostel - the nicest people run it always happy to help, great wifi, comfy beds and such clean bathrooms. Really good social kitchen and living room area. Would always recommend
This place was utterly terrible. We stayed in the garden room which frankly wouldn't have been fit for gardening equipment due to the damp. Even my hamster would have caught a cold in that room. We had to leave early because there was a free space in the local portaloo which we thought would smell nicer. The bed was super uncomfy. There are nicer rooms in Mordor

This is a great hostel located about 10-15 minutes outside of the old town. However, this is not a problem because the bus station is very close and it only takes about 30 minutes to walk. The dorms are great, lots of room and very clean. I had a dorm with it's own kitchen and bathroom - very self contained. Ana is a lovely woman who makes sure everyone has everything they need. I would definitely recommend this hostel to others who are thinking of coming to dubrovnik.
