A quiet place at the edge of the city, very casual and informal with a great host who will help you with anything! The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed the garden. Also close to the bar area which was a plus.
Wow. What a way to start my trip. Everybody says it and I can only repeat it, Baçko is what makes that hostel amazing. He gave us free drinks, great advise and kept us company without being overbearing. I met loads of people and travelled on with a few of them. I have since recommended his hostel to many travellers and would stay there again in a heartbeat! Thanks man, you are a legend!
Friendly place, really nice staff and great location to hang out or visit the city (just next to a park and the city center). Had a great time, there!

Nice hostel, with an amazing owner. He always made sure everything was okay and integrate all of the guests. Thank you for a great time!
We came in late one night and left early the next morning for a flight, but it was so great while we were there! Backo is super nice - we had a beer and talked with him and the other guests for the few hours we were there. In the morning, he offered to drive us to the airport at 6:30am for 5 euro! And he said he even drove a girl at 4:30 am the week before. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are in Podgorica!
When in Podgorica this is the place to be! Bačko is a great guy and the soul of this place. Close to town center and a very charming place.
Highly recommended. Backo is a seriously top guy. Nothing is too much trouble and he loves having a beer with you.Took me and another lad out for a meal one night too. Podgorica may not be too 'happening' but Backo more than makes up for that!
Lovely place with a great owner. Stayed there 2 nights and had a great time. Got offered some white wine and some snacks when i fot there. The owner is hanging around chatting to travelers and gives some really good advices about Montenegro. I highly recommend it!

This is an absolutely wonderfull hostel, which is actually more like a home than a hostel. It's clean, safe and very central placed, but what I valued the most was Backu, the host, who is really something special. Don't miss this place, it's definitely the biggest attraction in Podgorica! Thank you so much, Backu, you are the best!
The best hostel to stay in Podgorica. Because the owner Backo makes Podgorica suddenly way more interesting. He will try to make your day as good as possible, with great tips, plans for your trips (and you should trust on his advice!), taking you to beautiful places, great stories and nice chatting with some beer. In the end, the best time you'll have in Podgorica is with him. Someone you will miss the moment you step out of the door. I would definitely recommend this hostel to everyone!
We had the private room, which is small, but it offers a comfortable bed and some space for your stuff, so all you need. It's a normal kitchen and bathroom that's shared with the other guests. A nice terrace enables meeting the guests and talking to the nice owner/staff. Best thing is the location, it's like 150m to the main bar/restaurant area and by foot you can reach everything else really quickly as well
You don't go to podgorica to see the city, you go here to hang out with the owner, backu. Backu is genuinely friendly and helpful and of course we ended up drinking with him in the garden instead of drinking in the city centre... the private room is tiny but you are only going to sleep there anyway. Tripadvisor got the address wrong so don't look at that map, the hostel is literally next to stadium. Very central location. Would recommend this place!
Very central, near the nightlife of Podgorica; but at the end you will prefer to talk in the garden with Backo and the other guests. It's one of the last hostels in which you talk with the other guests,tasting food and drinking rakja. There is a little kitchen and wifi; very quiet because far from the traffic. Backo give you a lot of informations and can help in the transfer to the airport
We really enjoyed our stay at Nice Hostel. Backo the owner was fantastically helpful. He recommended places to visit, local cuisine to try and joined us for a few drinks at the end of the day. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to stay in Podgorica
Great staff and great value for money. Located very close to the national soccer stadium.
I had a great stay at Hostel Nice Place. The host was very friendly taking me for a stroll with him to the hill next door and providing very interesting insights to Podgorica and the life of a Montenegrean. He also showed me the secret art to making the perfect cup of coffee! I would recommend this hostel to anyone :)
Highly recommended. Bedding is clean and beds comfortable. Dont be put off by slightly run down exterior, this is the balkans afterall, its very safe! The best thing about hostel is the owner Bačko. He will help with everything. He is very kind and warm host, typical of the balkan region. He can show you where to eat and what to see. He helped make the city alive to us. Took us to the airport for much cheaper than taxi himself and showed us sites and told local history as bonus.
The place was nice. We had some troubles finding it because we arrived very late and the street made a circle around the hostel. The hostel was good from inside nothing too fancy but still it had everything we needed. The good thing was there was a 2 person room for the same price. The host was very helpful and explained us everything about the city and the country in general. He gave us great recommendations.
