We were 5 girls traveling together. Mara and Sandra (her daughter?) were so accommodating, and it was nice to feel like we were in a home after many days in hostels! We still had our own private space-- 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a hallway, so we felt like we had privacy but also the warmth of the hosts that is often missing when you're in hostel dorms. GREAT value, super clean, comfortable, and good location with spectacular views of the Adriatic. Choose Sobe Mara-- you won't regret it!

Would 100% stay again - loveliest woman who ran the hostel, offered drinks upon arrival and told us everything we needed to know about buses etc. Beautiful views and very clean. Only thing I'd say is it's a bit of a maze to find it so perhaps needs an extra sign from the road.

Air conditioner is free only 2 months in a year and not in June?

Owner Comment (Hide)
Dear guest the price is low in that time of year and the conditioner is not included in the price. The air condition is included in the price from 08th of Jul.

A really good apartment with a great view of the town, it is not really close to the old town, althogh it is not a big deal to walk through there. On the other hand it is close to the main bus station and some nice beach. The woman who keeps the apartment is really kind and helpful!

The guesthouse was very clean and in nice condition. The facilities were somewhat limited to a fridge, kettle, and microwave. There was a nice deck to view the water and old town, but it was closed off to only one guest room. It is about a 15 minute walk into the old town, and a 30 minute walk to the ferry terminal. However, coming home takes much longer as it is up-hill (over 500 steps!). There is a bus but it takes ~20 minutes from the old town and ~15 minutes from the ferry terminal.

the view from the balcony is beautiful. the owner was very helpful in answering our questions.walking back from the old town to the house is up hill ,so it might be tiring, if that is a problem there is a bus that is available, so it shouldn't be a problem. walking from the house to the old town only takes about 15 mins, so ,the location is basically very good and the price is also good considering all the rooms in dubrovnik that are central are very expensive.I highly recommend this place.

When we first arrived there was a toter telling us that it was really far away. In reality it was a convoluted route with a lot of steps but after the first time it's really no hassle to get there. Really friendly and helpful woman that owns it and a great view. Beds were a bit firm and pillows a bit empty but overall a great stay.

We've been there only one night but everything was perfect so far.

Everything was perfect. Staff knows everything about near there. Location is perfect also. It took just 10 or less minutes to go to old town by foot. And it's in front of the bus station. I don't understand why people complain about the air condition. There are bunch of hostels that even doesn't have any. U can pay for if u want to. But it is cool and nice at the night time because it has own terrace or big window. Best hostel ever and price is reasonable. I strongly recommend this hostel.

Had a lovely stay at the hostel, had difficulty finding it on the first day so the man kindly picked us up and his mother who though could not speak much English was so nice and welcoming both times me and my friend stayed at the hostel.

My friend and I stayed at Sobe Mara in Dubrovnik for 2 nights and it was amazing! The owner was very welcoming and friendly and offered us refreshments as soon as we walked through the door. The room was very clean and spacious and had a balcony with an amazing view overlooking Dubrovnik. Even though we originally had difficulty finding this hostel the people and the view from the room made it worth while! I would definitely recommend it to other travelers!

It is near the old town but you have to climb millions of stairs to get there. Atleast a good exercise and the views were absolutely amazing! A bit hard to find though.
