Our stay at Villa Banana was comfortable. We were a group of 4, and stayed in 2 bedrooms, had our own kitchen, bathroom and fantastic balcony. Wifi only works on downstairs terrace, hosts were friendly to us (although apparently not to everyone) but spoke minimal English. A decent climb to get to hostel from the old town or bus stop, but not difficult or strenuous unless you have your backpack on you!


I dont want to go again

Well, I can't say that I'd recommend Villa Banana for anyone. To begin, there was no staff, the internet didn't work and nobody who was there speak English. Besides, the old lady let us leave our stuff there and take shower when we had checked out already. There must be other hostels in Dubrovnik? For sure.


There are no pick up service as it said. It is located in the top of hilly mountain. The slope is from 17 to 25% . No public transportation can reach. If you don't have car, forget it. And the wifi isn't work. And you can't get any help from the staff.


20 minutes walk from old city. Old house, not good showers and toilets.


Very clean and comfortable room with cute balcony and amazing view over the houses and the sea. Located on the top of a hill, so expect a good work out on the way back, but it's totally worth the view and cozy quiet feel. Staff is very dedicated and caring. Mladen works very hard ensuring people get picked up and dropped off on time from the bus station
