The owner was really helpfull, informed us about everything we needed to know about dubrovnik. Location is good, since the city is rather small and reachable on foot. The bus station is very close. Its 15 min walk to the old town. The room had wi fi and cable tv. It has everything you need for a short stay.

The host was lovely and welcoming, giving a good intro talk about everywhere and the buses to use. She gave us her phone number in case we got lost or needed help. Facilities were great, kitchen well stocked, air con, terrace, towels and wi-fi. Only downside for us was the location, as didn't realise everything in Dubrovnik is in the old town. However the buses are great and the bus stop is just up the road so location was manageable. Definitely would recommend!


Had a really nice stay, very friendly staff! I can only recommend Vila Marija!

We loved to stay in this hostel. Milica is very kind, she helped us in everything (sightseengs, programs, tours, weather, etc.). The location is ideal, it is the same distance from the old town and riviera beach and very close to the bus station and harbour. Atmosphere is wonderful.

The place was hard to find with no markings on the door, no one was there to let us in when we knocked and buzzed. We had to stay somewhere else because we couldn't get in and their phone number was disconnected and they never responded to our emails. We had to find a different place to stay that night in the rain because we could not get in.


The place is close to the bus terminal which is good. The internet connection was fine, and everything else good, as well.


This hostel is not far from the bus terminal and ferry port. Please find the street ''Andrije Hebranga' and go straight along the road until you find a small address mark 'Padre Perice' Then, cross the road and go up stone steps in an alley (it is Padre Perice 8). Friendly and kind hostess and her family make you happy.


The place is really nice and the hosts are very helpful. The tips about the restaurants and places to go were great!


The host was utterly friendy. On the day of arrival she took the time to explain to us where to go, what to see, eat, do. She was very caring and since we stayed for a whole week she even gave us new towels and changed our bedsheets. She helped us booking daytrips... Would definately stay there again and can only highly recommend it!!


Everything is fine. A little bit far from center, still u can take a bus.


Milica, the lady who runs the hostel, is amazingly helpful, made us feel at home and was there to help with anything. It's always great when a guesthouse feels like it's being run because the owners really love doing so!




Fantastic hostel. We stayed for 3 nights and would definately come back. The owner is very welcoming and helpful giving us juice, maps, bus timetables etc on arrival. Although the hostel was not very close to old town it was an ideal location for us. Very close to the port and bus station. Buses to old town were quick and regular but we mostly chose to walk as it wasn't too far. Room was really clean and comfortable.

great hostel, very clean but unfortunately no hot water - we stayed over night and had at least a couple of showers each! The owners had stayed up to let us in at 11.30pm - really impressed - made checking in much easier


a bit far from the center. coming from the bus terminal you can walk, to the old city it's better to go by bus. when we arrived we got a different room instead of the one we booked as the lady did mix up things with the name. it was no problem, as we got to pay the cheaper price for the other room for the first night. couldn't communicate in English with the lady as the actual apartment keeper seemde to be anywhere else.

The place is very nice and lies a little out of the center, is however well accessible by public buses. The host is extremely friendly and will help you with anything you need! Can only recommend!


First two nights we stayed in the room with the kitchen which was really nice, the bathroom was a bit old. The second room was smaller but nicer although it didnt have a kitchen. The Lady that runs it is very nice and told us everything we need to know about dubrovnik. The location is a bit far away and we ended up spending quite a lot of money on buses to get everywhere, This is probably the only thing stopping us from staying here again. overall we enjoyed it :)


The room was small, but serviceable due to the excellent air conditioner, the beds were comfortable top. The bathroom was dated, unclean and unventilated; but towels were provided. Make sure you read the room types carefully, this could catch you out and you might end up with no kitchen facilities. The host was lovely and very willing to help, she provided us with some great advice about the town and were to eat, and was very accommodating.


Marija was an excellent host and gave us a lovely overall explanation of the city and the old town. The location is a fifteen min walk from the bus but only because its uphill..house and town are accessible by bus..overall a lovely stay and highly recommended!
