We absolutely loved the hostel! The staff were amazing and our room was super nice. We especially loved the balcony and the view!

Very nice building & nice rooms. It isn't actually in town, but the hostel workers offer a frequent shuttle to go see town. The WiFi was fast, but it would cut out often.
The hostel itself is fine. Clean, spacious, friendly staff. It's the shuttle to the old town that's a joke. It's a 20 minute drive, which would be fine if they had enough space in the cars for all who wanted to go at the scheduled times, but they don't. I went down for the 10am shuttle one morning to find only 1 car providing the shuttle service as the other had been in an accident. With 13 people wanting to get to town I waiting until 11:30 am to finally get a ride. This happened a few times.
The staff were helpful and the rooms were great, very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. It was more like staying in a hotel than a hostel. It is far from the old town, but anything close to the center is really expensive. They offer a shuttle service to and from the old town and the bus station, which is nice, but you have to pay 5 euros round trip each time you go, and since this is really the only option to get into the old town, it should really be included already in the price.
This was not a very positive experience! The staff here were very unpleasant! They were rude in their response to answering questions, and acted like they didn't want to be there! The kitchen facilities were a joke! No kettle, no toaster, or even simple things to cook with like pots and pans, or cups! The location is very far away from the actual old town of Dubrovnik, and the shuttle is not always regular, even changing schedules without mentioning it to everyone else! Not good!
The staff at this hostel were so rude, acted like they didn't want to be there the whole time, and it seemed like such an effort to help a guest. The shuttle to the centre isn't frequent and they changed it one night and didn't announce it, then yelled at us when we got the time wrong. The facilities could've been okay if they'd provided you with the proper equipment: they had a stove with no pans; no kettle; two glasses for a 5 person dorm etc. Overall horrible experience.
Nice hostel, good to have kitchen in room. Shuttle makes it easy to get into town but the cost can add up.
Staff was great, very helpful and friendly. The hostel is far away from the Old Town, but the shuttle services were cheap and frequent. It is a very good place to relax, and the beaches near the place quiet.
Good hostel overlooking Zaton Bay! Don't get put off by the location, my stay and trip to Dubrovnik was as smooth as cheese. They have shuttles to the old town every two hours even running late into the night for about 2 euro. The rooms are clean and with good facilities, and a spectacular view. A supermarket is 10 mins by walk which was convenient. Must mention the receptionist Joe and his buddy Alex, really cool guys who can help you out with almost anything and were great to hang out with.
Can't imagine that there's a better place to stay in Dubrovnik than here. They have a pool with a beautiful view of Zaton Bay. The hostel's 12 km outside of the Old Town, but they have hourly shuttles. Spacious and clean rooms. Amazing value for the money!!
I only stayed here one night to stop off at Dubrovnik on my way to Split and it is quite a long way from Dubrovnik old town however the hostel runs very regular shuttle buses. It's also worth exploring Zaton Bay which is beautiful. Cooking facilities are available in the rooms but these were quite under equipped. Definitely worth staying here though if you want to visit Dubrovnik on a cheaper budget.
The hostel is not in Dubrovnik, but as good point, they have a transfer service (4 euros per day). The swimming pool was not very clean either. The bathroom did not work very well :(

The staff is helpful, clean rooms and a bar with a ping pong table for a good atmosphere. But the location isn't very good if you want to visit and party in dubrovnik. There an efficient shuttle service, but it makes 20minutes, you will spend your journey in it if you go twice per day. But it's perfect if you want to spend the journey in calm beach just near, and go to dubrovnik in the night. I would definitly recommend it for that! Amazing view from my room.
Dubrovnik is expensive and this hostel was the most affordable. The location is awful, but a shuttle to the old town if offered (not for free), running every hour. Cleanliness: average/good. Atmosphere: good- It`s a small hostel so making friends it's easy. Beds are uncomfortable and bed sheets look old. The sunset tour offered by the hostel is pretty amazing. My first night there, there was an issue assigning beds(more bookings than beds), so I had to share a king size bed w/ someone.
Great place to stay if you're after some tranquillity! 10 mins walk and you're at the harbour where there are two great places to eat (cheaper too compared to old town Dubrovnik prices). The shuttle bus service was great too and really handy. Biggest perk was the pool! Lovely place to stay and the staff were really helpful too :)
Staff were very helpful, helping me to get to the airport at 5am. Would make sense to have cooking implements in the room rather than at reception and have better implements eg a sharp knife and a grater. Would also be good to have lockers in the rooms.
I thought their transport systems were very good, but perhaps could have been able to carry more people.
A few issues in the beginning while Joe (receptionist) was away, but as soon as he got back everything was sorted out and great. He is a credit to the business. Even though the hostel is a bit out of old town, the shuttle service is excellent. The view is amazing. Recommend fixing the wifi, so it can be used on the 3rd floor. Would stay again.
Completely disorganized! This hostel has a lot of potential but when I stayed there were so many issues for guests - staying had no rooms available when booking had been made on hostel world, too many people in one room etc. Staff on reception had no idea about anything and were unfriendly. Location is good because of the shuttle to town and there is also a supermarket a short walk down the hill
Firstly, I've stayed in tons of places and am not picky. I can work through most but this was just really not a cool place at all. Black mold on the walls, disgusting smelly standing water in the bathroom which I had to ask to be cleaned the first day and then they never cleaned again. Much farther from town than expected. Had to wait 45 minutes passed check in to check in because no one was around. The bar seemed to be just for the staff, not engaging and could be rude at times.
