Although I booked the Boarding House, I was moved to neighbouring place at check in. The place was nice, but lacked the atmosphere and facilities that a hostel usually has. They had made a 'dorm' room from a normal room for two by bringing in additional beds.

Great base to visit both Dubrovnik old town and Lapad's beaches. Not really a 'hostel-atmosphere', but clean and the staff is very friendly.


Framed in an outrageously beautiful scenery, this hostel has very good location and excellent atmosphere and very good staff, specially Boban who was an amazing host, absolutely phenomenal guy. This hostel would be nearly perfect if the room was better equipped in terms of furniture and bathroom.


Was a lovely place with great staff. Only issue was it's location which was at the top of a giant hill with 150 steps (we went up and down them so much we counted). Can be a brute to do in 30 degree heat! Was also quite expensive compared to hostels in other cities but this place was about the average price in Dubrovnik. Taking that into account it's well worth the money :)


Located near the beach. Very friendly staff


The property owner was very firendly, welcoming and helpful, showed me around the facilites and talked abou the local culture, places to see etc.


We started our trip at Bergovic Boarding House and were thoroughly pleased. The family running the place was fabulous as well as their staff, who kindly helped me out with any problems. While our private room was simple, it was very comfortable, clean and quite big. The place was a bit tricky to find, do not get confused by the house numbers as 17 does not come directly after 16! The location was great for us, beach is close and old town a 30min walk or short bus ride away. Hghly recommended!

Although the position was OK the owners running this Boarding House need to separate their personal items from their business. The share kitchen included a large bin of dog food for their family dog - this does not belong in their business property. The shared dining room was so crowded with extra stuff that it was not a welcoming spot to sit. Fortunately the weather was good so all the guests sat outside but the dining area should not be a storage space for extra and unused stuff

So sad to hear this from you. I was surprised in start when you told me that you travel one week around Croatia with fancy jacht and than you booked 2 cheapest dorm beds for you and your husband. That room is NOT dinning room,that is internet and storage space. So sad that you don't know difference between 5 stars hotel,fancy jachts and hostel. Best regards Begovic boarding house team


Everything was perfect. The location is so close to the beach, promenade and bus station that takes you right into Old Town. We had our rooms cleaned and towels/sheets changed every few days. The family who owns the hostel is amazing. They were so helpful with everything we needed. I'm coming back here for sure just to see them again!!
