Frankly. It is a very good place, thanks to the guy who runs it. Very helpful. The view is just awesome. Transportation to the center is very easy (plan to climb some stairs: very healthy). Parking seemed to be mission : impossible but we sorted it out with our host.


There were fleas in the room, we have 20-30 bites each of us. A bathroom, kitchen, shared space (terrace only) was very poorly equipped. The house staff did not respect the privacy of the guests.

Good Staff . He is amazing with us help everthing . Localization is good if u need to go bus station but litte far old town( many stairs). I recommend this place . I am sad Cuz we did not say goodbye Nakos.


The owner (Nako) is really gentle and helpful!


Very good Hostel situated near the harbour in the neighborood of Grüz. The rooms got enough space and are very clean! The personnal is very helpful and gave us all the informations needed to enjoy Dubrovnik. We definitely recommend to go to this Hostel.


Very friendly, helpful and comfortable


A nice guesthouse run by a very nice man. He gave us a free lift to the bus station and lots of info about Dubrovnik. The hostel is a bit of a walk but this is to be expected seeing as it's a lot cheaper than most other options. Also the directions given in the confirmation email are not very good. Overall, a very good place to stay for the price!


This hostel lives from its so sympathical host! He really cares about his guests and gives a lot of very god advices! The hostel itself is located very uphill and the streets are not easy but the view is ausm and by bus or taxi you get to every location in dubrovnik!

It was really hard to find it at first and it takes a loooot of stairs to get to the hostel, but the owner is the sweetest (he drove me to the station, which was really nice) and the view is beautiful.


This was my second visit to Nakos hostel and the main reason I returned was because he is such a good host. The hostel is in a good location slightly outside of Dubrovnik although easily within walking distance to the main things. Nako is extremely helpful and gives lots of good information when you arrive. He even gave us his number and told us to call anytime if we were lost etc. The terrace at the hostel is fantastic and really nice to relax there after being in the busy city centre


Had a nice stay but remember: its not close to the old town. (20min walk up and down hill) Also its not a hostel but a guest house.

All true.. thx


Just to say, sometimes the bathroom does get a bit wet from people using the showers. The floor mat gets a little soaked with water. Otherwise everything was fine.


Had a wonderful time! It was hard to find at first but The view was beautiful and very close to the harbour! Nako was super helpful with directions and activities and always available to answer questions! Very comfortable and clean room! Will definitely have to go back!

The house keeper was very nice, he picked us up at the port and showed us the way to his house where we could park just in front of the door. He then gave us a lot of useful information about the best way to go to the old town (about 20-30 minutes by walk), the attractions of the old town, the prices,the bars, the restaurants, the clubs, the beaches... This hostel is really a good value for money! In Dubrovnik is not easy to find a cheaper room. I would recommend it!


Nice little hostel with a stunning view of Dubrovnik from the terrace, a bit of a walk to the old town but it's a very pleasant one. The host was very kind and gave us many recommendations of things to do during our stay. The only problem was that there was no air con just a fan so it got very hot at night. Other than that everything was lovely.


the hostel environment is very good and people do everything to make you feel good. But the room has no fan, very stuffy and next to the kitchen, which is open 24 hours, for those seeking rest not recommend it.


I would firstly like to thank Nako for all his help and advice about Dubrovnik. The ride from the bus station and to the airport were very much appreciated. The hostel is on a hill and it's many stairs to get there but it's quiet and secure. However it's in the suburbs near restaurants which are cheaper than the old town. The bathroom was clean, and the fan in the room was a lifesaver from the heat. There is wifi too. I would suggest communal coffee/tea supplies for breakfast as there isn't any.


Very friendly and excellent and clean facilities. I hope you like stairs though as it can be quite the hike getting anywhere


Well, the location is like 35 minutes distance walking from Dubrovnik's Old Town, a bit more far as expected, but still ok. The house is very nice, Nako is the owner and he is very friendly and helpful. One thing I have to say and that make me a bit sad is that the house was very dirty, mainly the bathroom.
