The oven is not working. No shower curtain is in bathroom, so the bathroom floor become wet after shower. We stayed for 3 nights but only one roll of toilet paper was provided, so we needed to ask for the extra. The renter's son is helpful though.

We are sorry but it is not true that the oven did not work, but you did not turn it into a power outlet. Why did not you say that you have a problem with the oven? No shower curtain in bathroom becouse somebody had broken it before you. We are sorry that you are only guests who were not satisfied with this beautiful and very affordable apartment.


Great hostel, wonderfully friend staff. Be warned that this is more of an apartment than a hostel however, so you will have difficulties connecting with fellow travelers. The apartment itself is excellent. What's more is that it's located 15 minutes from a pretty secluded beach the staff can tell you about. Perfect.


Loveliest owners! On arrival brought us tea and biscuits. Is a little far from the old town but can get a bus there easily and is a very short walk to the beach. Amazing appartments with really good kitchen facilities. Thanks for a lovely stay!


We stayed at Old Sailor Apartments for 3 nights in July, and had a great time. The accommodation is conveniently located in Lapad, close to the bars and restaurants, and just a couple of minutes from the bus stop to the Old Town. The room was neat, tidy and comfortable. What really makes this place special however, are the hosts who were very friendly and helpful during our stay. I would certainly recommend the apartments to others.

These apartments are fun by a lovely little family who were very welcoming/happy to help us however they could. The apartment was a good size, clean


We had a lovely stay in the old sailor apartments and were made to feel very welcome from arrival. The owners were extremely helpful, providing maps and information that we needed. The apartment suited our group of 4 perfectly and had a nice private outdoor terrace. The apartment is a little way from the old town but the bus stop is 30 seconds away and is extremely efficient to get to old town and other areas of Dubrovnik.

We had a lovely stay at old sailors. The couple who run it are very nice and accommodating; we couldn't check in the first night as we were stuck in Athens and they didn't charge us! It's a bit out from old town, but the bus is located right outside their place and is easy to use. The apartment was very clean and had a grey porch. I would definitely stay there again!


Great place to stay, a bit out of the historic centre but very well connected by buses.


Good place to stay if your on a road trip with a group of friends. If your travelling on public transport it is far away from the city centre.
