Good location near the harbour/bus station, bit of a walk to the old town. Very helpful staff even giving us a free lift to the bus station when we left in the morning. Good recommendations for restaurants and help from staff. Perfect if you don't mind a shared bathroom, good cheap option.

Popular with British due to the name, but don't expect to find lister and the cat, although the is a dog. It's fine to stay but in the arse end of nowhere. The rooms have a sort of Torquay hotel feel to them, and there's no kitchen or communal area to speak of. It's family run, but not in a good way (I.e. You're not part of the family but not separate from it either, like visiting bitter inlaws). Nice alsacian though.

A special mention to the staff who couldn't have been more helpful. A very welcoming atmosphere.

Nice cheap hostel which is fine for a short stay. The location isn't ideal but old town is easily accessible by bus or a half hour walk. The host was great - picked us up from the bus station and told us all there was to know about Dubrovnik.

We had an incredible stay here for 3 nights - we extended an extra day because we were so comfortable here. The rooms are clean and have a great fan, helpful in the summer. The owners son, Nako, is incredible and goes above and beyond to help out with anything you need. He gave us wonderful recommendations and made our stay worthwhile in Dubrovnik. He even saw us on the road and stopped to give us a ride to his house!

We never thought that such a long way we had to do every day and it took much time to arrive. Dubrovnik is a city that deserves being close to the old city because it is a slope city. People there so kind but I would never come back!

We had a great stay in Dubrovnik at the Red Dwarf Guesthouse. Couldn't have asked for more from the hosts - fantastic guide to the city and recommendations for both restaurants and things to do. Good communication and even a lift to the bus station. Highly recommended!

I came to the Red Dwarf with my girlfriend and her friend for a few days during August 2014. The manager, Nako, was incredibly friendly and had plenty of information about Dubrovnik and we really were not short of things to do! One thing alone to recommend about this hostel alone would be the airport transfer as it was most certainly cheaper than the taxis! I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone. Thanks for everything Nako and all the very best for the future! Will

Dubrovnik: The hostel is located 10 min from the bus station, less than 10 minutes from the harbor for the ferries for islands (except lokrum) and a bit more than 20 minutes from the old town (by foot). Although it is a bit far from the center, its location makes day trip to surroundings islands really handy. Owners of the place are very attentive, and at the guests’ disposal for any information. A map of the city is provided. There is a fridge where food can be stored. A fan was also available

We had a really nice time in the Red Dwarf. Staff were really nice. Hostel is managed by owners son Narko, who is very nice and very helpful. He will even help you and give you a lift for a much discounted rate if you need one to the port or station or airport. Very enjoyable. Would recommend getting a lift to the hostel as bags can be difficult with the steps on the way there.

The hostel is near the town center, the owner is kind, helpful but very motivated to catch some tourist for fill the emptiness. The room was a litle more expensive in comparison of the quality and the location of our previous booking experience in Croatie, but the room was clean, with wifi access. Find a room in Dubrovnik and near the town center was proved to be difficult in this period and this hostel was a good choice, which is also closer to catch a boat for some island and a bus station.

Lovely hosts, great big bed and beautiful view from up top. A good 30mins walk to old town which wasn't a problem, but having to either walk a dark road or up about 250 stairs each night wasn't too much fun. Hostel is close to the bus station. Great pizza place just a few mins away. A tad noisy in the morning as our room had the window right next to the courtyard also the room could use a fan as it gets warm at times with the window closed or you get bitten with the window open. Would recommend!

This was a really sweet place to stay at with an incredible view of the harbour. There is a supermarket and a 24h bakery near by, which is very convenient. The owners are exceptionally informative and will go out of their way to help you. If you're looking for a cheap place to stay with everything you need for a nice holiday in Dubrovnik, I would definitely recommend this place.

The rooms were clean. Staff are very helpful. But the walk into town is probably closer to thirty minutes than fifteen. And that's walking fairly fast. And a taxi is 60 kuna.

It's far away from the old town so don't walk, take the bus. Nako, the guy who runs the place, was friendly and an interesting person! Nice view from the terrace. Also, we got free beer when we arrived, which was nice.
