The hostel itself is quite nice and atmospheric and has a perfect location, 5 minutes from the bus station and in the old town. However, because it is in the tourist-mobbed old town it is extremely loud in the dorms (I stayed in the 12 bed dorm with street facing windows) 24 hours a day. I suggest they invest in sound insulating windows because as it is now anyone talking on the street sounds as though they are standing next to your bed shouting at you.
It was fine to stay there, but one thing very uncomfortable was the drain of the bathroom... it was really watery on the floor especially in front of the bathroom... there was a bucket for mop, but not enough... It was quite good located in the middle of old town, and offer mini bus to get to Tirana, Albania...
The best double room. Please note the double room is not placed in the hostel, but in a nearby building called Palazzo Drusko. But they have wonderful rooms to rent. Palazzo Drusko has superb rooms. They are on Facebook too. Search them. They have partnership with the hostel.
Amazing hostel! Staff could not be friendlier and more welcoming, great atmosphere in the rooms and social areas, rooms were clean and bright and well spaced out. Really made our stay in Kotor and have already recommended the hostel to people we've met on our travels!
Very nice n helpful staff n also the best place to stay if u wanna keep on movin to Tirana, Albania... these people arrange car tranfers there with 30e!!! :) Location in in the hot spot where its easy to explore the whole old town. The door locks in the dorm room were kinda tricky to unlock :o a bit pain in the ass to come back in the night n try to sneak in the room without wakin everyone up if u haven't practised openin the lock : p besides that, nothin bad to say about hostel! : )
Great hostel, but also very expensive! Great facilities with 2 showers for 1 dorm. But do not order the home made dinner! Only 5 euro, but not even worth that!
A big thank you for the guys who moved our luggage from the hostel to the Palace. Excellent service from Milos and all who made us feel very welcome. We had a fantastic time.. Karen and Jean- Marc

Great hostel and the staff are out of this world. Took care of every need and want with a smile! Would definitely go back on my return to Kotor.
Fantastic hostel and staff, we stayed far longer than planned! Best hostel in kotor
From the moment of arrival the staff were very friendly and efficient...relaxed and welcoming! We stayed in a 3 person room on the top floor which was cozy yet enough space to move around. The room was very clean and everything worked well. The hostel is itself is charming with its stone and woodwork. The communal areas downstairs are a great place to meet people. Noise wasn't an issue for us, we got good sleep and the Aircon worked well in the hot summer weather.
This was the third time in which I have stayed at this hostel. The third time was an unexpected stay therefore I had not made a booking. On arrival at the hostel I was told that it was full, however the staff made some phone calls and they were able to fit me in locally. On every visit to this hostel the staff go out of their way to make the guests feel welcome and comfortable. I would highly recommend this hostel.
The location was great and easy to find. The staff was helpful, but a bit dis-organized at times and had to push for some information. The atmosphere was hit or miss with people socializing and the events put on by the hostel. Great place to explore the old city, climb the fortifications and get out and explore Montenegro.
Definitely highly recommended! As we had a private room, it felt like we could have been staying in a hotel. The communal areas were always lively with plenty of good people to meet. Staff were really friendly and happy to help out wherever they could.
A brilliant independent hostel in a lovely little town, would happily stay here for a week!
Great staff, great location. Solid wifi, works in the rooms. Nice looking place with great atmosphere. Lockers, bunks with lights, and lots of outlets. No complaints.
Fantastic location, having a kitchenette in the room was a welcome surprise!
Great hostel, amazing location and cool decor. Staff was helpful as well. Definitely recommend staying here
Very welcoming and helpful staff, clean and in the center. A very good hostel. Eric.
Excellent hostel!! Had a really great stay with friends. The staff with friendly, helpful and fun - they organised a fab private boat trip for us with a captain - for just 14 euros each - around the bay, stopping off at Perasta and feeding us Montenegran coffee! They did everything they could to make our stay very pleasant. Would definitely stay again!

Great hostel, in an amazing little town. The boys ended up organising transport to the Sea Dance Festival to see Underworld. Staff are fun loving and easy going and always there to help. The accommodation, space and air conditioning was second to none in our 6 bed dorm. Easily one of the best hostels I've stayed in ever!
