Hostel was unaccomodating! The receptionist was horrible, yelled at us and slammed the door on us several times and threatened to cancel our booking and take our money. Bathrooms were unclean and shower was basically just a tap. There was one lovely man who helped us out greatly. I Feel sorry for him. Directions to the hostel are useless several groups of people staying there had extreme troubles finding the place. I wouldn't reccomend this place to my worst enemy.

Firstly this is not a hostel. It is rooms owned by families in the area. There were 5 of us and we had to book a double room and then pay for the extra bed in a 4bed room. The double room was a room in a family's apartment. They were lovely but it is very awkward staying in their marital bed with their things whilst they slept in the living room. There were no fans, stank of cigarettes and the windows did not shut. Location- an hour walk and impossible to walk back due to the huge hike back!

I would not suggest this hostel. The people who run it are actually crazy. There are signs that say they will charge you if you leave a bad review. The atmosphere of this hostel is not friendly. The directions are horrible... Our taxi driver couldn't even find it. I would highly suggest considering a different hostel.

Very nice place but it's more of a homestay than a hostel. The Map on hostel world is not accurate so check the street name and take a detailed map to help you find the place. They let us check in early too which was nice.

No real hostel, either a room in a familys big house. Far away from the city center, but with a great view over Dubrovnik. Rooms were very small and hot (no air condition). Very dirty and bad equipped bathrooms (no toilet seat or toilet paper, no keys). In every area of the house were notes with different stupid kind of house rules (rule 1 was not to leave a bad comment on hostelworld!). We felt not very welcome! No atmosphere! Our impression: Hostel Management just for making money.

Located around 15 min walk from the old town. We (party of 2) have been placed in a double room with one bed despite booking twin accommodation. We were told that we've booked different rooms for 3 different nights(we had a print out to show it wasn't the case). They did offer to bring another bed into the room on the following day but we decided not to take it as there did not seem to be a room for another bed in the room we were staying. The wardrobe was packed with owners clothing.

I had a private single room for myself, perfect to keep my stuff in securely, and had a full shared bathroom 3 feet away across the hall that was basically mine to myself. Kitchen facilities were below average, although I did not use them. No atmosphere here. Signs that say "no alcohol parties". I wasn't looking for a party, but it just sort of killed it. i wanted to store my suitcase for a few hours after check out and they would not allow it.

Check out is 10:00 from room and when new people come in a room your luggage can not stay in the room, next time go in hotel with 5 * and pay much more, here is a shared bathroom and 3 room have 2 bathrooms only apartment dont shared bathroom,

Lovely hostel, a little outside the Old Town but the walk to and from is nice. Great view from the terrace across to the mountains. Decent sized rooms and clean bathroom. Wifi worked fine in our room. Overall good value for money.

Positives: 1. Close to the bus stop and easy to commute to the city centre 2. Cheap and relatively clean 3. A nice and helpful owner Negatives: 1. A very misleading description of the hostel! The place is nothing that is described on the website - it definately has no jacuzzi and is an old house (not a new facility as stated) 2. Cold showers unless you get up at 7am and are the 1st one in the queue 3. Old ripped bedding (it's clean but nowhere near to being new) 4. No key in the bathroom (1)

The Parking is a improvisation! They don't really have a parking, you have to ask a guy to take his car out and then you can move yours, you don't have freedom to do whatever you want with your car. The hostel is on the top of a mountain, it is not easy to reach anything by walking.

Although this property was relatively cheap and had all the facilities (kitchen, balcony) I could wish for, our stay was not perfect, mainly due to the location and the cleaness of the bathroom. But still, the value for money was not that bad en the host was friendly!

The directions to this hostel aren't very good so we ended up walking up A LOT of stairs with heavy luggage which wasn't much fun. However, once we arrived everything was fantastic, the room was spacious and clean. There shower and bathroom also clean. The kitchen had everything we needed and room in the fridge, great for cooking your own food. The apartment is about 20-30 min walking disance to the Old Town, so not far at all, making this accommodation pretty good value for money.
