Fantastic hostel run by some very friendly and helpful people (especially Josip who went above and beyond to help). The location is absolutely stunning with sea views and a swimming pool and jacuzzi upstairs. Very chilled, has a great bar and the shuttle to take you to town is ace. Very close to the sea where there is a great restaurant and a market. Atmosphere was one of the best I've encountered!
The hostel is not "in" Dubrovnik, but it is in a beautiful little village 20mins away in the shuttle bus, which runs regularly to and from the hostel. It is in fact well worth taking the time to relax in the bay that the hostel overlooks - far quieter and more convenient than the bathing areas in town. The guys that run the place are cool chaps and very helpful.
Staff were very nice, helpful and good crack. Airport transport was very handy as it picked us up at airport and dropped us straight to the door of the hostel. Shuttle bus was very handy and cheap into the actual town itself and went very frequently. Pool and sunbathing area at hostel was nice and bedrooms were clean with good AC.

Hostel with a killer view. Though its a little far off Dubrovnik (around 15 mins), they have excellent shuttle services to and fro the city. The staff, especially Joe and Dave, were extremely helpful and nice. Loved our stay there
The hostel is a bit far from the old city and therefore cost much less than the hostels in the old city. People might think that the distance is a bad thing but it's a great place! The view is outstanding, there's a supermarket close by and most important- a beautiful beach where you can swim. rent a kayak or just walk around and chill only 10 minutes walking from the hostel. The staff are really nice and friendly, always trying to help and the shuttle service is really convenient.

Be aware- the hostel is a good 20-25 min drive from Old Town and the shuttle buses are rarely on time. BUT the hostel is modern, cool and clean (except common areas which smell of smoke).Its also near a good shop, restaurant and the sea Joe is very helpful and I enjoyed his dry sense of humour which some mistake as being rude! All rooms are ensuite and have fridge and hob which was great, but don't get too excited about the pool which was dirty/ closed when I was there. No lockers in the room
Excellent friendly an helpful staff. Great trip to Mount Srd. Pick up from bus station and the shuttle bus were great (and needed as out its quite a way out).
The fact the hostel is a little bit out of the main city doesn't even matter, the shuttle service is great, super regular! It was a shame we couldn't use the pool during our stay. The rooms all have a mini kitchen and big bathroom, super comfy beds. Everything was really great! Thanks for having us!
Excellent staff, friendly and helpfull. They gave us important information about tours and the town. Clean and supplied kitchen. A store is also in the reach on foot. Beautiful view and beach 20min on foot. Shuttle to the town takes off every hour and a ride is only about 20min to the Old town - depending on traffic jam. We met a lot of interesting young people all over the world. The best three days in Dubrovnik!

Although this hostel is a bit out of the way, they've got a great shuttle system that is cheap and gets you downtown quickly. The view from my balcony was quite stunning! The pool was a great addition, as well as a decent bar with cheap beer. What made this hostel was the people, it was a really great atmosphere to mix and mingle with fellow travellers. My only real concern was that they didn't have lockers for your valuables, they did have a safe but I personally prefer a personal locker.
Great hostel with excellent facilities (wifi,bar,table tennis,bathrooms in all the dorm rooms,air con and even a pool/spa) and atmosphere just outside of Dubrovnik Old Town! Love the hostel shuttle service that runs regularly (all day and night) to and from the old town and bus/ferry terminal! Big shout out to Joe and Alex-excellent hosts and awesome sunset tour! Only down side for us was that the common area is also a smoking area and as non-smokers the smell was pretty overwhelming at times.
Overall, a decent hostel. It was quite far from the Old City, but the shuttle was convenient so it wasn't an issue really. The only negative things were that the pool was closed (for cleaning, I think? That's understandable, but it was closed basically the whole time I was there), the WiFi didn't really make it upstairs that well, and the staff smoked inside (That's probably just a Croatian thing I'm not used to). Rooms were great though!
Hostel Dubrovnik sunset was a great hostel a little way out from the old city. There was a regular shuttle service that ran every hour from early to late for 4 euro return per person. The rooms were really clean and air conditioned - we had a lovely balcony which was a major plus! The pool was awesome we didn't use it much though! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful if you needed information. A few amazing restaurants only 5-10 minute walk down to the port! Would definitely stay again!
This hostel is brilliant although a distence away from the old City however the hostel transport is really cheap and very regular so this is not s problem. The location is beautiful and has a feel of a small fishing village, the locals in this area are very friendly and prices for everything so much cheaper than inside the walls. Also the THE STAFF ARE BRILLIANT!!! From Joe who runs it to the shuttle bus and transfer drivers they are friendly and will do anything to help you out. GO TEAM
Hostel Sunset Dubrovnik isn't in Dubrovnik and is a good 20 minute drive if the shuttle service picks you up on time or squeezes you into the van after a disorganised allocation of spaces. We stayed in Dubrovnik 5 nights and not once was our bathroom cleaned, the kitchen was poorly supplied and wifi doesn't work anywhere but reception. The pool area was closed our entire stay. We booked a shuttle for 5:45 and 15 minutes later we had to wake up our driver from the weird staffroom. Dont stay here.
Its a good hostel, highly recommend it. The negative point is that the wifi dont work in the rooms.
No lockers in the room! The hostel is 20 min drive from the old town(main touristic area) they offer a shuttle but it costs 4euros every time. My room wasn't cleaned once since I got there. (I stayed 3 days)
Felt and looked like a hotel. Good AC and comfy beds. Only stayed a night but looked like cool activities offered. Staff is sarcastic so be prepared but they're very nice. Shower did not have hot water but since it was the middle of summer I didn't mind. Wifi weak in rooms but good in common area.
Only stayed the one night. Late check in and picked up from the bus stop which was great. The hostel is 15 mins from Dubrovnik old town, but has fairly regular shuttles provided by the hostel. Beautiful location with fantastic views and a pool.
we loved this hostel! Its not in the centre of dubrovnik but its exactly what we needed after a month of travelling. The pools great and we love the manager Joe. Would recommend everyone to stay here.
