Cool place. Was only passing through so kinda didn't get the whole experience in Dubrovnik but it was ok from what I saw. Wifi was slow since it was in a bunker. Neno was a nice dude.


Unreal location, so close to the pile gate of the old town and incredibly convenient for connecting buses to the main bus station. Dubrovnik is not a major backpackers destination, more middle aged married couples and huge package group/cruise ship tourists. One day is enough to take In the beauty of the old town and the coastline. No great eating options. The hostel is very well managed, exceptionally clean and in an unbeatable location.


Very nice hostel, Neno helped me a lot with everything I had to see in the city, a very nice person, the hostel is very nice and confortable and close from everything!!


couple that run the place were very nice people I would strongly recommand that place.


The location of this hostel is fantastic! Only about a block outside the castle walls! The man who runs it (Neno) is fantastic as well! Upon my arrival, he spent almost a full hour helping me figure out what to do while in Dubrovnik! The hostel is very clean, the beds are comfy, a towel is included and there are big lockers to fit all of your things. Highly recommend this place!


Very close to old town. You could literally throw a stone inside the walls. Neno is a very informative host, room was clean and the wifi was fast


Stayed in a private room, was nicely presented, clean and had air con and a little view which was nice. Only stayed one night so don't have too much to say really. Not sure how the common areas were in the rest of the hostel. Would recommend the private room and good location.


Great hostel. Fantastic location, comfy beds in fascinating cavern-style rooms, good lockers and had some really good touches such as a booth to change in, and good amount of power sockets in room. Bathroom and toilet could have been a little cleaner - they didn't smell very fresh. Otherwise, very positive experience.


since in this hostel some hostels and privates next to old town are combined, we did not get our room at the exact adress were we booked, but very close. it was fine.


The owner (neno) was awesome never stay anywhere but here


Location is really good, right next door to old town. The kitchen consists of a kettle and microwave so you can't actually cook anything. Nice that it was only a small hostel, only two rooms I think. Security was good with everyone having a key to get in and also lockable lockers beside each bed.


Run by probably the nicest family out there. They will answer any questions you have and we very hospitable. The facilities are clean and it is located close to the beach and old town. You would be much better off staying outside of the old town and this is a great option.

I stayed at City Central Hostel 4 nights. Neno and his family were very helpful and gave lots of recommendations, nice big lockers, comfortable beds, small hostel so it's easy to meet people, and great location. Only complaint is that it is a basement so while it stays cool, there aren't any windows and it's a little make-shift and dingy, the showers were really small too, main door doesn't automatically lock, and no outdoor place to hangout. Otherwise it's a good place to stay.


We had a wonderful stay and Neno is a fantastic host!


Fantastic hostel, made as feel right at home. Will be recommending to anyone visiting Dubrovnik.


Great location for the price!


Really great hostel, especially for a solo traveller. The area is perfect as it is just outside of the Old Town and close to many beaches. It's really easy to meet people and there is so much to do around the Old Town. Since the big room is in the basement, there are no windows so it's amazing for sleeping in. Would definitely stay again!


Wonderful and reliable host with the best knowledge of practically everything, we could not thank you enough!


Excellent hostel, best location just outside of Old Town. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very clean rooms. Would stay again!


Couldn't rave about this hostel anymore! Neno is the friendliest and best host I've ever come across which made the stay even better. There are only ten beds and the common room is on the way to the bedrooms so you meet everyone while you are there. The ten that were staying when I was there all ended up getting along really well and we all hung out day and night. The hostel is in the perfect spot and Neno will help you with anything you need to know. Defiantly a place to stay!
