This place is a bit of a trek from town and is quite restrictive. They dont like you bringing in your own beer and there is no real kitchen. There is only one member of staff that speaks english and the woman that was usually around seem most put out when asked for something. On the up side there was a good crowd of people when i was there so had fun. it is nice and quiet at night and they do very good meals for 5 euros.
Best hostel ever. Amazing food and staff treat u like family!

This hostel is simply amazing. I love it! The staff welcomed me really warm and kind. It wasn't any other place on my trip when I have met hospitality like here. Also, the guests of the hostel was so great. I've met so many fine people. Good party in the bar at the roof. The food was just delicious. Buffet breakfast is cheap and great. Same for the dinner. But the best thing to do is probably the boat trip around the Budva Riviera. Just get away from the crowded beaches and enjoy.

Pool table is out of service. Bars only open 3H, have to pay to use the jacuzzi. Table tennis table can only be used a certain time. The pillows weren't great. I was disappointed with staying here. The info needs to be updated, the walk to the beach was much longer too. Look around before booking
First, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and when you arrive the give you a welcome-shot rakija. The rooms are very clean and our dorm has a AC. The bathroom was clean. They had a great terrace on the Roof but its some open for two hours at day!?! why? I think its a good place to stay in budva. But the security is very poor! You cant lock up your room, so everybody can in it. The lockers for both dorms are in the bigger one!! So you must always move in the oder dorm..(no lockers)
Terrible hostel, the 2 Serbians running it are really nice and try their best. The problem comes from above them. The owners and family are always sitting around watching you, never smiling, yelling at the 2 people managing it. The bathrooms are covered in about 2 inches of water at any time. Also one night the owner came out with a pistol threatening to kill a Bulgarian group of travelers. On a good note the food there is delicious and of good value.
I didn't like this hostel at all. we stayed in the same room with the staff, not in the room we had occasionally booked. When we arrived there, they asked us to show the reservation so they know how much we should pay, so no transparency at all. Make sure that you don't have to pay the additional 10% deposit you allready paid on hostelworld. Else the room was really small and not very clean. at least we got new sheats on the bed though. good thing: you get an AMAZING breakfast for just 3 euros!
Pros: Extremely friendly and helpful staff, delicious dinner for 5 euro and all-you-can-eat breakfast for 3 euro. Cool bar upstairs, atmosphere is about 50-50 Russian tourists and younger backpackers, so there's a party vibe. Cons: Rooms don't lock, are no lockers, and there's a back entrance right from the street. But it seemed pretty safe. The bigger problem was that the bathroom door didn't lock and the floor was constantly flooded. Also a bit far from the town and station, up a steep hill.
Saki made us feel very welcome, he explained about his city and showed us the best places to visit. He also offered a very reasonable boat trip for a few hours that we took him up on with some Aussies at the hostel - great fun. The food at the restaurant downstairs was excellent and really good value. Diolch yn fawr
Pretty awesome hostel where everyone is really nice. All the staff are great and the cheap meals where also delicious and filling. They offer tours of the harbour which are great and the rooftop bar is cool too. Would definitely recommend stating here while in Budva.
A really nice place with a fantastic owner and staff. A little bit of a walk from the old town to get there, but well worth it.
The staff make this hostel. Saki and Rajsli are such good company and go out of their way to make your stay at the hostel and Budva an amazing experience
Basically, this is the only real hostel in Budva. But nevertheless, it is great. Although it is somewhat out-of-town, it is a 10-15 minute walk to the beach and the main bus station. Because it is the only one, it creates a great atmosphere with many backpackers around the world. Breakfast and dinner is cheap and great value-for-money.
Saki is very nice guy... :) I am very happy to have met him!!!
Good hostel, Saki and his staff are very helpful nice place to stay and recommend doing the day boat trip that they offer.
If you stay in Budva you and you want nice and frienly place to stay with amazing staff you will not mis it with Saki Hostel & Guesthouse. I definitely recommend it!

Saki is a legend!!! We had a great time cruising around on his boat trip, get a group together and go see the private beaches and caves. The rooms were really fun but there was only one shower and toilet for 16 people? The shower leaked pretty bad so the bathroom was always soaked. Fully booked when we were there but they managed to cater diner for everyone. Super helpful people! :)
Saki took great care of us, and the breakfast for 3 euros was delicious!
Great place, super helpful staff. Couldn't do enough for us.
Great place to stay, the balcony and outdoor area on the roof were great for relaxing and had a good atmosphere
