Great view of Dubrovnik. At the 'back of the city' with plenty of steps but this is Dubrovnik and worth it for the view. Our room had slight smell. bed was being held up by a big rock and some pieces of wood. kitchen only has one hotplate. Super hard to find this place- no signs saying its name ANYWHERE. If coming from bus stop, walk straight across road and you'll be at a some steps. Don't take these, go right and take next steps (go left at the top of these) , knock on 3rd door on left.
It's an apartment room type place. There are common areas, but we didn't really meet many other people. Breakfast for 5E was a nice big european style one. Location is fine, just 400 steps uphill from old town or about 10 minutes uphill, less downhill. Fom the bus stop, cross the street and look for black metal doors (3 levels) e gold colored embellishments. It's the uppermost property and from the stairs you can see the common area one level below. Nice quiet place, good locat. Petra was nice
A great hostel whit a great value, the cleanliness is excellent, in my opinion we just missing a microwave in the kitchen... :( the bus stop is nearest. All staff speaks English, and they gave us the direction all the city. We really enjoyed, also Dubrovnik is the best city in Croatia
Petra, the owner, was so nice and kind with us! The house is clean and near to old town, but be prepare to face a lots of steps (but it's impossible runaway from stairs in Dubrovnik, anyway)!
People might not give full marks for the location because of all the stairs but I felt they weren't that bad. They view of the town from the hostel made it worth it too. The owner was massively friendly and very helpful. She pointed out everything worth seeing in town as well as more on demand. Great place
we liked the place, and we liked petra, which was very helpful for us; we didn't mind the many steps to go down on the old city, the place is very good, but if you are lazy go somewhere else
Excelent hostel, the owner was very kind and helpful. Rooms had AC and free towels were offered. Pretty close from the city center (just a handful of steps, which is inevitable in Dubrovnik), and very handy for parking the car for free. Only drawback is that the kitchen has only one small electric stove.

It was a bit hard initially finding the hostel but whats you do they are so welcoming and accommodating. There is just no sign saying Marco Polo hostel which made it difficult. Petra was lovely on arrival, she gave us juice, biscuits and nuts. Its a short walk downhill to the old town and even going up wasn't too bad but don't do it with luggage. Bus number 3 stops right across the road which makes life a lot easier. It was clean and felt very secure, would definitely stay again
Perfect for when you are there with a car as Dubrovnik has barely any parking possibilities. You do have to walk a few stairs but the view makes up for it. Great common area only downside is that the Internet connection wasn't the best.
This is a wonderful place to hang your hat in Dubrovnik! Petra picked us up from the airport and gave us some information about the town as we drove in. She is so friendly she even made us coffee and provided us with some snacks when we arrived. It was great to be given such a warm welcome and info on Dubrovnik activities. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a beautiful view of the old town and Mediterranean Sea. Of course to get such a view you need to climb but the walk is pleasant. J&K
extremely hard to find without a sign, you need to ask local people for help. and we were incredibly hot in our room at night. but other than that it was a very good place to stay with a little bit of a trek into the old town
The staff were so lovely. Petra welcomed us when we arrived and gave us information about Dubrovnik along with complimentary refreshments. We also booked a boat trip through her and got a free taxi to the port on the morning of the trip. We didn't realise how many steps there would be though - definitely recommend getting the 3 bus if you come from the old town as there are 500+ stairs up to the hostel. We were really impressed overall, it's clean, has a great kitchen and the view is amazing :)
