Despite the central location, this hostel is really difficult to find and is not signposted at all. In fact after 25 minutes of roaming around lost and confused, we ended up phoning the hostel to ask directions only to find out we were standing outside the front door! Once we found it however we weer made very welcome and offered all the advice and friendliness you could hope for. If they could just get a sign to put up in the street & another on their front door, this would be a perfect hostel.
Really good value for money. Even though it was unadvertised and it took us around 15 minutes to find it, the whole stay was really good. The walking distance to the old town is around 15 min downwards on a labyrinth but beautiful stairs (the returning is an experience itself, but it worth the effort). Special mention to Petra and her daughter. I left my medicine at the hostel and just found out the day after. Asked them to send it back to Zagreb and their disposition was amazing. Thank you!
Leaning more toward B&B than a typical hostel, Marko Polo was a great choice of places to stay in Dubrovnik. On a hill with wonderful views of the city, right across the road from a walking trail to the top of the mountain, and a short walk to the old city. The room was clean and had everything we needed. Private, secure, beautiful. Very homey. Not the place to go to meet other travelers, or for those who want to avoid walking up hills.
The location is up on the hill, and a 30 minutes walk to the old town, but the view from the place is gorgeous. The bus stop is right next to the place. Not difficult to get to, just confusing for the first time. Place is clean. Dining hall was really nicely decorated! We didn't get a chance to use it because we came in the off season and there were few people with us. Internet is slow. The lady around was helpful, but personally felt her a bit aloof. Great stay overall.
Was a wonderful place but literally IMPOSSIBLE to find unless you ask everyone you pass to help you find it. We finally had to have an old local women walk us up to the door. There is a great view from the room though!
