I think it was a little bit too expensive for a "hostel". It also takes about 25 minutes to walk to Old Town Dubrovnik. If you want an early night, it might be hard for you because there was a soccer court just around the corner with loud music and partying people. If you don't mind anything of this, you will be happy to stay here.

This was an awesome stay! The staff did their best to make me feel welcome. They accommodated me even though they didn't receive my booking from hostel world.com , for this they deserve my highest compliments!!


Rooms are a bit small but OK. Having to take the stairs to use the bathroom or the toilets is not practical. However the hostel is very well located and the people there are friendly. Cleanliness was also OK.


Well located compared to most hostels, about a chilled 15min walk to town and you can find scenic spots on the way. A good, clean, hostel and makes exploring Dubrovnik easy. Not a party hostel if that is what you are looking for.


Stayed in the 4 bedroom private. Was extremely clean and a great start to our travels. The only criticism I can have was it felt more like a hotel due to the exterior stairs leading to our room, meaning we didn't actually have to go into the hostel at all. Takes about 20 minutes to walk into old town.


the option of having breakfast would be great

We got attacked by bed bugs here! They moved us to a new room but no other compensation. The doors on our joint balcony didn't lock, the keys to the room were hard to use. The location from old town was pretty far, and the showers leaked everywhere!! You had to mop it up yourself.. The water was also luke warm. The only decent thing was some of the staff were nice and there was a shared kitchen.


Absolutely loved the place! I spent 5 nights there in total - the place is very clean and super cute. The staff are very helpful and friendly, too. The only thing that people might not like is that it's a bit of a walk (~15-20 minutes) from the Old City, but I personally loved the location - the walk was breathtaking, and the area was nice and quiet to get away to. It's also definitely not a party hostel, which I also loved.

The location was average, but if you are prepared to walk it's approx 30 min to the old town, the facilities are clean and new.. although there is no good common room to hang out with other travelers, good hostel if you want time away from the touristy places.


This is a nice peaceful hostel about. 30 minute walk away from old town! The walk is a nice stroll and doesn't seem far at all! It also helps you to escape the expensive restaurants in old town! The hostel is nice, clean and has huge lockers for your things! The kitchen is small but has everything you need! Most of all the staff are super helpful and friendly and make you feel right at home! Great hostel!


My gf and I stayed in a private apartment above the hostel. For our money we got a kitchen, bathroom and airconditioner all pretty good for the included price. About 20 min walk from old town or bus station but this is fine as the prices in town are ridiculous. Really nice really clean hostel/ hotel. Will stay again here


So far away from the old town, and no atmosphere at all...


Note that the hostel is far from both the city center and the busstation (both 30 min walk). Thus 33 euros for a bed was really expensive, especially in Croatia... Other than that the hostel was fine, but i think that there are better hostel deals to be found in Dubrovnik.


the hostel was nice and clean, also very cool and friendly staff but it was way too far from the old town (a 30 minute walk). therefore i wouldnt recommend the hostel to persons who dont want to spend their time looking for buses or cabs taking them to the city :)


Had trouble trying to find it!!! The entrance is not visible from the street and there are no signs at all!!!

such large rooms and space was great. and very helpful staff.


excellent hostel 5 stars. one of the best I have stayed in Croatia. the staff are very helpful with good local knowledge. bathrooms are spotless and very modern. the walk to the old town is only 20 minutes away and fantastic views of the coastline along the way. sp


We had a great stay and we would stay here again. We stayed in one of the small apartments which was a perfect size. The staff were friendly and helpful in every way. W loved it It is a but of a walk to town but we liked it and we never took te bus. Along the walk you can find small beaches which aren't as crowded as the beaches in town. Overall great!


It is very very far from the cityntaking into account that younare paying 30 euros... Vry expensice, not worth paying so much money


Expensive but very nice for a hostel. Staff really friendly and facilities clean. I had great wifi in my room!
