Great Hostel. Good day trips offered, lovely staff!!
My 4 nights at the backpackers club were incredible, was literally staying with a caring family who wanted me to have the greatest time. Highlights were definitely Milka's french toast with home made marmalades and Ivi's amazing day trips to Bosnia and the caves surrounding Dubrovnik. I think Ivi was probably the best tour guide I have encountered as he entertained us and shared all his Croatian wisdom, it was as though we were travelling with an old friend. I 100% reccomend this place!! Marcus
It's a great place to stay and the owners are fantastic.
A little bit out of the main town, but very well connected by the bus and really close to beaches and restaurants anyway. The day trips organised by the hostel were fantastic and of fantastic value. The family running it were incredibly nice and very helpful.
The family running the hostel makes it all worthwhile. They're so helpful and make you feel at home right away- plus the homemade breakfasts of fried eggs and French toast are delicious! It a little ways over from the old city but a short bus ride and we ended up just walking there and back which takes about 45 mins. Especially in the peak summer season it was so nice to be out of town and in a quieter area (plus it's walking distance to a beach) oh, and their pillows and fabulous.
This hostel was ok... Just a bus ride away from the old town which was convenient ...I thought it was abut weird that the whole fam hung out on the top floor kitchen, I sometimes felt like I was staying in someone's house and it was awkward bec they have family dinners and such and speak Croatian, Not the best value for money!
This is a wonderful hostel. The trips are of incredibly good quality, and I would recommend this hostel to anyone who visits Dubrovnik. The staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful. Rooms and facilities are clean and the cooking facilities are all good. Great atmosphere and a short distance away from all of the main attractions, providing opportunities for nice walks.
I have been there for 3 nights. The hostel is pretty good, but if you want to go to the old city center you have to catch a bus, and you have to pay 2€ for only one ticket, so the hostel is FAR from the center (10-15 minutes by bus). The staff were very kind and helpful, but the hostel was very expensive, I have been in a lot better hostels paying half a price...
Great family and very convenient to lots of areas- the day trips ran by Evie were fantastic and the ability to rent a car and hit other spots was great. I would return.
Amazing family run hostel, they were so good, took us out in a boat tour and for dinner. Can't recommend highly enough! Hostel only 10 ,minutes from old town by bus.
Milka and her family were such wonderful hosts! A bus ride away from Old Town, but super easy to get there from the hostel. We recommend it for sure!!

Great place to meet new people! I am a solo traveler and made some amazing news friends, who I have since explored additional countries with. The staff are extremely nice and helpful.
The family that runs this place is great. So nice. I paid 160 kuna a night and for some reason I was charged 190 my last night even though I slept in the laundry room. The all girl dorm of four beds is cramped and no lockers. It also connects with the laundry room. My bed light didn't work and the room was dark at night. I heard the tours were good but didn't go on any. The location was par for the course. About 3-4 kms from old town and a 3$ bus fare each way.
Most amazing hostel experience ! Beautiful family run hostel, all the tours are super cool and not just your stock standard tours! Evie took us to the war museum, botanical gardens
When you go here you become part of something wider, a family. The hosts are like parents and will help you with everything, even a welcome drink of grappa when you arrive. We had one of their apartments with a lovely Croatian lady coming in to make sure we were ok/offering food everyday. This is real Croatia. Even though it is a bus ride away from old town it is completely worth it for the atmosphere. Great if your a solo traveller or in a group as it's easy to make friends and go out together

Staff and the people staying were really friendly but the room was too small for four people and all of our stuff! Location is alright though out of town - near to some good beaches though and there's a quick bus to the Old Town.
This is a family run hostel, and therefore every member of the staff is extremely welcoming and accommodating. There is a great common room with movies, music, and a great atmosphere. It's a bit of a distance from Old Town, but that was actually nice since Old Town is beautiful, a very popular tourist destination and I would never want to stay right near there. Would definitely stay here again.
Just got back from the most wonderful week at this hostel. Every member of the family we met went above and beyond in looking after us, it really felt like a home from home! The boat trip we took was a highlight, and the common area with the bbq had a great atmosphere. The area is simple enough to navigate around, with beaches, bars and restaurants within an easy walking distance. The advice given on your introduction is comprehensive and helpful. I would recommend it to absolutely anybody!
This family was amazing hosts for a hostel. Very welcoming and made me feel like I was at home! You HAVE to try Milkas breakfast and her homemade jams and honeys. She is an outstanding cook! Definitely a great stay here. Highly recommended.
