Even though located outside of dubrovnik itself the the availability of a shuttle bus insured you had no hassles getting into dubrovnik. Be warned that there is no atm and can only get money out when in dubrovnik.

Hostel is a bit far from oldtown but offers frequent shuttle at a fair price, including late in the night. Confortable rooms with air conditioning and good space for parking.

Bar isn't actually a functional bar because the neighbors complain... So you'll have to go into town to drink anything. I think the staff there is just overworked... Our bathroom wasn't cleaned and trash wasn't emptied in 2 days. We also gave our laundry to be done, and it smelled good but my underwear was still dirty and our shirts still had deodorant marks on them. Either they threw both loads in one washer and nothing got wet, or just threw our clothes in the dryer with a sheet.

Decent hostel. Not the best I've stayed in, but it's clean and secure. Location is of course the biggest drawback - 15 minute shuttle ride to Old Town, and it's 4 Euros to go there and back. That's something they should make clear. They offered to pick me up from the bus station to get to the hostel. Upon arrival, they told me that I owed 2 Euro for the pick-up, which they neglected to mention when they offered the ride to me. :/

Do not hesitate to book this hostel because it is outside of the city. The shuttle service is first-class and takes you directly from the hostel to Old Town, and runs very regularly. The hostel is located on a hill, and my room had a balcony with such a beautiful view of the sea. The grocery store is a 5-10 min walk and the waterfront is about a 12 min walk. The rooms were clean, GREAT Air-conditioning, well-equipped kitchen, fast Wi-Fi in the rooms, and very friendly and caring staff.

This was the cheapest HOSTEL I could find in Dubrovnik. However it's in an area which is outside of Dubrovnik. It's pretty but not much to do. Transfers are frequent in to the town and the guys working there spend their days shuttling back and forth. It's not cheap so factor it in to your price. My room was clean but wasn't kept clean. Overflowing bin on the 4th day. Good wifi connection. No lockers but seems a secure building - had no problems. Before you go out have some Rakia from the bar

Everything was great! We actually went back a second time to stay for longer! AIR CONDITIONING was a much needed vacation from all the sticky hot hostels everywhere else. 5 minute walk from the grocery store, a bunch of really good restaurants and most importantly, the best swimming spot ever! The staff is all friendly and helpful, the rooms are comfortable, and you have your own kitchen. Free wifi, cheap shuttle (in a car) into town. We will definitely be back to Dubrovnik, and this hostel!

This place was amazing. Even though its not in Dubrovnik, the shuttles make it so easy to come and go from the old town, and are also a great way to meet people. The rooms are nice and the balcony is amazing. The staff are also very helpful and welcoming. Met heaps of great people here and hopefully I will be back one day.

This was a very cheap hostel and for the money it was okay. The bathroom was gross though and I only stayed one night but there wasn't toilet paper for my stay and the bathroom floor was wet the entire time. If the bathroom was cleaner I would recommend this as a very inexpensive hostel to stay at if you don't mind many people around and dirty bathroom.

Stayed here for 4 nights, the bathroom was not cleaned once, and seemed as if it hasn't been done for ages. Kitchens are in each room, although we were given 1 pan and frying pan with near to no utensils Quick walk to the water, and a couple of retaurants nearby. About 10 min drive from the centre of Dubrovnik, shuttle bus is available, although 30kunas a day adds up. Staff rude, although give you free rakije shots...

It´s a nice place if you don´t to stay in the rush of Dubrovnik city. Close from the city, it offers you a relaxing place.

The transport arranged by the hostel for getting in to Dubrovnik and back was excellent, although they lacked a service in the middle of the day. Kitchen facilities were available in the rooms, and the hostel is nearby a supermarket. There is wifi in the hostel, although this is only available in reception. The view from the hostel room balconies was beautiful. Everything was clean, and the air conditioning worked! The staff were friendly too.

This hostel is not in the center of dubrovnik but 10 min drive outside in an other town. Nevertheless it is still a great place to stay because the balconies of the rooms overlook a beautiful bay and there are plenty of places to swim or even to cliffdive. two supermarkets are also nearby. if you want to go to the city there is a shuttelbus running it is 2 euros one way though. For 20 euros a night I think it would be appropriate to run this shuttle for free. Atmosphere is not really hostel like

Outside the city, but with good shuffle transport that was not a problem. Nice staff, clean and comfy rooms with great view.

People in the hostel were really nice and they picked you up from the bus station and even had a bus to bring you out to the city for party and one to take you back. The rooms were clean and with a nice view to the adriatic.

I needed to ask every time for the stuff to cook, because there was nothing in the room. But everything worked, wifi in the living room, shuttle bus, air conditioning, kitchen.

The hostel is about a 20-30 min drive from the city. But they supply a regular bus service that is pretty cheap to and from the old town.

Great location outside of dubrovnik... Transfer takes you into old town and runs until 3.30am which is fantastic!!! Staff have a great sense of humor love to have a laugh :) each room has a little kitchenette and the shop isn't that far away downhill on the way there... Restaurant 5 mins away quite cheap with good coffee... Also 5 min walk to the water for some sunbaking and dip in the beautiful water... Thanks guys for relaxing holiday :)

If you are aware, that you book a hostel outside of Dubrovnik, you will find the location pretty awesome, the views are great. Be aware however that you can add at least 4 Euros to the room price, as the shuttle into the town is not for free. In addition 5 Euro for laundry is quite expensive. The internet didn't work at all on the first day on the second it worked down in the lobby but not in the rooms.
