Owners were very friendly and helpful, they picked us up from the ferry port and gave us lots of information for getting around dubrovnik, walking distance to the bus station but you would need to get a bus into the old town as its quite a long walk! Would recommend but note the location and the need to take buses.
We were relocated and the uncle's place, very close to the hostel. They were nice and spent time with us. Nina went to pick us up, this is unusual and very nice. Walking to the old city is at least 40 min, even following Nina's exact indications. Walking to the bus station or to the port is 10-15 min. There is no computer so to manage my other booking I had to go to the port where an access to a computer is expensive.
Nina is very nice and really tried to make our trip very confomrtable. She offers lots of services. The place is really nice and there is a terrass to have a dinner outside with a view of Dubrovnik. All the hostel is very clean. It's not far from the Port of Gruz but you have to climb some stairs to reach the hostel : but that's not very difficult. I really recommand this place that is very convenient, nice and not expensive !
Nina was lovely and helpful! I enjoyed my stay here. It's a bit out of town but the walk was easy ! Kitchen facilities would have been useful but overall a very good place to stay!
Quite close to the old town of Dubrovnik. Wifi available. There is garage for a car which is very convenient as on the nearby streets it is very hard to park.

The staff were very helpful. A lady picked us up from the bus station, and shared valuable information. Walked to old town Dubrovnik, took about 25-30 min, definitely doable unless its very hot. Took the bus on the way back, bus station is also close (couple of min) to the house. Overall enjoyed our stay, definitely recommended
Nina was very sweet and it was very helpful that her daughter picked us up from the bus station. When they say they are in the center of the city, that's not true in the least. If you walk from the bus station, it is a schlep up hill. Walking down to old town was fine; it is about a 25 minute walk. We would then catch the bus to come back up the hill. The bus is 12 kuna if bought at the ticket stand and 15 if you're in a rush and buy it on the bus. Nina will also do your laundry for 50 kuna.

Nice atmosphere, carefully staff. Good location. It looks more like a house, but suits perfectly for what we need
Extremely friendly and kind staff. Ran by a wife and husband. They picked us up from the bus station for free, and gave us juice while we waited for our room to be prepped. Bedrooms and bathrooms were extremely clean. Old town is about a 20 minute walk which isn't bad. A little bit of a hilly area though, which was annoying in the heat. Can't fault them for that, though!
The apartment was clean and comfit. Besides, our host was very nice - she came to the bus station to pick us up and then she explained to us where was the nice spots to see. I recommend the hostel to people who need a affordable room with nice hosts.
Went with a mate but was thinking how perfect it would be for a couple! However it is a fair walk up hill so be prepared for that, keeps you fit though and also offers a great view. Very friendly owner wasn't 100% sure if they had any cooking facilities though and due to the length of my stay never found out
We loved staying at this place it had a beautiful view and after a hot day in the city going to a cool place(nice breeze on top of the hill) was very pleasant. The only down fall of the place is that it is on top of the hill and lots of stairs to get there. The directions are confusing but as the owner told us you can call them up and they would come and pick us up from the bus station. The room and facilities were very clean and the staff very friendly and gave us lots of info of the city.
Free pickup from the station was very good, this hostel is located quit high. Nina and her family are nice and helpful. Nina helped us book a daytrip to some islands. She can also book daytrips to Montenegro and Bosnia Herzegovina. The rooms were clean and nice. To get into the old town you must walk 25 minutes or take the bus.
Stayed here for one night. The apartment have a great view of the harbour, but getting to the apartment was quite hard. It was about 20 minutes bus ride from the Old Town. The owner however was helpful and gave good directions if you're heading to the town.
does what it says on the tin. Bit of a trek from old town especially in the heat but If you don't mind that then it's good value. Staff could do with being around a little more. The walk to old town is about 40 mins but you can get the bus which is 15 kuna each!!

Was horrible trying to find the place, definitely a job for a taxi. Room was huge an spacious though it never got cleaned for the 3 nights we were there, same with the bathroom. The lady was super sweet in telling us where to go, there is a shared fridge to use and she does do your washing but it came back damp. Awesome place if you're staying one night and don't want to be in the old city
Fantastic reception and we felt very much cared for by the owner of the hostel - thank you to her for everything she did for us! 20 minutes walk away from the centre so good location. Also a relief to be collected from the bus station as we had were completely new to the area. Very clean and spacious as well as comfortable. Was not sure about the tea and coffee making facilities however, seemed to be tea and mugs but no kettle (yes, we're British so noticed these things!)
Nice large room with a partial view of the harbour. Pick up from the bus station was greatly appreciated as the house is located on a hill (as is pretty much all of dubrovnik). The room and bathroom were nice and clean. There's a small refrigerator and plates, bowls and cutlery for use. Nina, her husband and daughter in law are all lovely and accommodating of any request. Laundry service is available. The location is a little out of old town but the walk in isn't too hard! Good place overall!
