Very friendly old couple running the place. They don't speak English but still manage to give you valuable information and make you feel comfortable, receiving you with a juice in the balcony.


This was a lovely, spacious double room only a twenty minute walk from the old town. The room is in a family home and on arrival we were given a cold drink by the very friendly owners. Their son spoke excellent English and gave us great advice on what to see and do. This room had no AC or fan which did make sleeping in the heat very difficult.


Very welcoming with a beautiful garden. Also nice and quiet.


Had an absolutely lovely stay in this hostel. All of the family were so accommodating and friendly, helping us out whenever needed. Really great location as it was within walking distance of most of Dubrovnik and also had a frequent bus service nearby. Would definitely stay here again and will recommend to all of our friends.

Thank you very much for such nice words about our hostel and it would be great pleasure to host you again!


Very nice and clean room with beautiful terrace! The staff was very helpful and friendly. If you are interested in quiet accommodation outside of city centre this is a good choice!

No air condition; for the matter of security in the night, we had to close the door of the balcony of the room with no window. Think about how we spent the nights (3)in the weather of over 35° but anyway we got s fan. Actually no staff with non English speaking (but kind) grand father and mother. Many steps to reach the place.

Dear guests, as you can see on my page air condition does not exist in the room you have booked.Second,on the balcony door never existed lock because it was not necessary, nobody demanded such a level of security as you.Thirdly, staff were spaking with you very well English after your arrival 2 hours and had all the time contact with you. After all I don´t understand why all these false words becouse comments and ratings of other guests telling all the truth about my accommodation.


Wonderful place and great hosts! :)

Thank you for staying at our house and for providing your feedback. We are glad to see that you enjoyed in your stay with us and we hope we will have the pleasure to welcome you again in the future.


Nice quiet hostel. 20 minute walk from bus station, 20 minute walk from Old Town. Owned by a friendly family. Lots of stairs to get to the hostel. Definitely not a party hostel (which was fine for my girlfriend and I).


owIt was between the old town and the harbour. It takes 20 mins to get to the old town, whch wasn't bad. Staff(Basically the son of the owner) was very informative and helpful. Only if there were a kitchen and airconditioning. I'd stay there again:)


Nice hostel. The owners are nice people. Everything went fine there.


Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, spotless, lovely friendly warm welcoming family, not one thing to fault. It was like going back in time watching the grandad in his vegetable garden, lovely lovely people. Close to port which was ideal for our ferry to Mljet. Thank you for a lovely stay and organising the taxi back to the airport for us. x

Firstly I should point out this is not your regular hostel as there are only a few rooms & in the family's house; if you want to party, its not for you. If, however, you want peace & a relaxing time,it's perfect. The family could not have been nicer - friendly and really helpful. The rooms were clean & the terrace was perfect for relaxing in the evenings. Great location, right in the middle so 20min walk to the old town or port either way. Thank you so much for your hospitality, we will return!
