Awesome hostel with excellent activities


94%

By far the friendliest hostel I've stayed in, when we arrived we got free shots of home made liquors and some delicious zucchini fritters. Staff is awesome, one of the most social hostels I've stayed in, and the breakfast is incredible, great value. Rooms had AC as well which is pretty important in Croatia. Highly recommend staying here, I would definitrly go back.

The family that run this hostel are extremely friendly, generous and incredibl helpful. Always trying to assist you in saving money and getting the best experience from your stay in dubrovnik. Hostel is amazing environment for meeting solo travellers or groups of travellers! Whilst located out of old town, a bus runs every 5 minutes which takes approximately 10 minutes to get there!

Mama Milka made this the best hostel ever. She's amazingly hospitable and lovely and made me feel right at home. My airline lost my bags and she gave me her daughter's clothes to wear. One of the most generous and wonderful people. The other staff were super friendly and helpful as well.

Lovely hostel run by a family. Definitely take advantage of their tours and breakfasts! 10 minutes away from the old town via a bus that runs every 10 minutes from 5.30am - 2.00am. There is a kitchen and a common room where it is really easy to meet other travellers, great for those in groups as well as solo travellers. Just bear in mind there aren't any 'lockers' per se. There are safety deposit boxes which you get the key to, but nothing to put your luggage into. Definitely recommend here!

LOVED this Hostel! Buffet breakfast was inexpensive & sooo good - Melka cares about her guests like they're family! Amazing tours everyday to Mostar & private boat cruises with Melka's son as the guide - AH.MAZE.ING! We went on the snorkeling/boat trip and it was the best day of my entire backpacking trip! Evie is thee best guide. Beyond all that hostel is only a short bus trip from Old Town, and 80 kuna taxi from the Bus Station. Clean, provide towel, have great common area & a/c. STAY HERE!!

Not sure why the reviews are so brilliant about this hostel. It's mainly the guests that make your stay so positive. The bathroom was very dirty and the towel was soaking for days that you stepped out onto. Security was an issue as there was just a small corridor to put your luggage in but no lock on the door so anybody could walk in off the street if they wanted to. I also found the guy who picked up from the airport to be very judgemental of me which is not what you want when arriving.

The hostel hosts were very nice and accommodating and it almost makes up for the state of things there. The rooms feel like you are living in their home and don't have any lockers for you things or really even any place to put your bags. Hosts are really wonderful though and run awesome trips, highly recommend the trips. If you aren't a neat freak then try them out!

Sorry but:We do have lockers, free of costs, decent size for all modern laptops/tablets plus big camera plus valet or other valuables!Also our luggage room is just next to lockers.Both were just next to common room so they were in front of your nose!There is a big sign there as well, since we cant ask each guest do they need locker...but next time ask for whatever you may need, we ll have it, including free parking, cheap laundry service, early wake up call, early breakkie etc.Regards, DBC team

Great hostel run by lovely family. Everyone was very accommodating and the cheap breakfast that was cooked in the mornings was delicious! Showers are warm with good water pressure, computers available and printer for use, cinema room is great, AMAZING WIFI, and even though it's on the opposite side of the old town the bus only costs around $6 for a 24 hour ticket and takes less than 20 minutes. Was sick the week I was here but the family made me feel right at home! Definitely recommend!

Short walk and a 10-15 minute bus ride to the Old Town, but still a decent amount of stuff to do in the area with the promenade. Great family and staff that works there to make breakfast and help you with setting up as well as providing tours. Grill outside that you can use which is nice and a decent sized common area to hang out at and meet other travelers. I would stay here again when I go back to Dubrovnik.

Great place ! The family that run the place are really warm and they make you feel like you're at home. Location is great, a bit outside the city and away from all the tourists. Breakfast is great and its a great place to meet a lot of people if you're travelling alone.
