Most of the dorm room doors appeared to be shut for some reason, instead they had a bin propping them open all night. Don't know if this is because the key cards don't work? The room I stayed in was a right mess but probably due to long termers staying in the hostel and taking over. Decent sized kitchen and free breakfast is a win. Wifi was $5 a day. Plenty of showers which were decent but inconsistent in temp, possibly due to sheer size of the place.

One of the few hostels in Australia that actually feels like a hostel and doesn't seem to be trying to milk you for every dollar. Free WiFi and Laundry are a win. Large communal area, an decent sized kitchen with a covered bbq area outside. Staff were friendly and really helpful with directions for walks and stuff. Beds were clean and comfy. I had the cheapest room, the only downside to which was the noise from the railway.

Only stayed here for one night because the price went up by $4 a night after that. The dorm was pretty crowded with belongings and there's no lockers but the bed was really comfy and actually had a duvet (doona) which was amazing after spending nights sleeping fully clothed under blankets in other hostels. Atmosphere was good and probably borders on the party side of things, wifi was free and strong. No all day reception is annoying but I was let in to the communal areas whilst waiting.

This hostel is a bit out from the shops but it's still walkable and there are plenty of tuk tuks or scooter rentals in the area. One of the managers even pulled over in his car to offer me a lift once. The atmosphere here is really chilled but there's plenty to do if you get bored and the pre partys are a great way to get ready for half or full moon :)

Only stayed one night but the beds were comfy, and everything was clean. No real communal area though and it was quiet when I stayed so didn't actually meet any other guests. Staff seemed nice and friendly enough and helped with all enquiries.

The fan dorm I stayed in was crazy hot and sometimes it felt cooler outside in the 38 degree heat. The bed was comfy and the ensuite shower was good. I also stayed in an aircon private double room on a different occasion and this was really good. Hostel is kind of let down by the lack of comfy communal area though, instead having wooden benches and chairs. Kitchen only serves breakfast and fully closes after, you can't even buy a coffee, which is annoying. All in all though it's a good place

Arrived to find that the dorms had been overbooked but I was given a free upgrade without any fuss. The hostel is bit of a walk from town but it's only 10-15 mins from the markets which isn't really an issue. Atmosphere was good, and the rear balcony area is a nice place to lounge around when hungover after bowling. Rooms and facilities were clean, showers were good.

Arriving at 6am after an overnight bus it was really nice to be welcomed into the hostel and shown to the air conditioned tv room where we could sleep and relax until our beds were ready. The travel desk and staff in general were very helpful and friendly. Showers were good and all facilities were clean.

This place always seems to be fully booked which shows how good it is. Accommodation is basic but clean and comfortable. Food is a bit expensive but the staff are really helpful and the bar area is a good place to stay for a few beers and meet people. Lockers get locked inside the building at night so make sure you have the things you need with you.

Good location for the beach but bit of a trek to the town. It depends what you're after as to whether this is good or bad. Nice clean room, comfy bed and good facilities in the room. Also have free parking which is useful.

A bit tricky to find due to road works but a local and a member of staff who was randomly passing showed us the way. The hostel is nice and clean but had few quests when we stayed so there wasn't much of an atmosphere. There is a free pool table though.

Atmosphere was a bit quiet, due to it being the end of season I guess. Bit a of a way out of town but cheap enough by bus, probably 30-40 mins walk (can't quite remember). All in all a decent place to stay and ideal for hiking about.

Miles from anywhere but really easy to get to and actually doesn't take long if you use the metro and trams, trams are 24hrs as well which is a win. Small pool and sauna, bar, restaurant etc. Really clean. Only down side is it's lack of true hostel atmosphere which is understandable due to it sheer size.

Good hostel, bit of a party place but wasn't mental, good bar/ mini club in the basement. You probably won't be happy if you need a good nights sleep but the activities in the hostel didn't keep us awake. Really close to the train station and only about ten mins max walk from the centre. Good kitchen, free washing and drying (I think, I didn't use the laundry service)

Thanks a lot for your comment, about partying: it depends, sometimes we have guests who are little bit party animals, sometimes the hostel is quiet even if we are almost full, but if have problem with noise tell it to our receptionists, they will solve it for sure. Yes, you`re right washing and drying is free in our hostel :)

Was recommended this place but it's not really my thing. More like a cheap hotel where you have to make your own bed and share a room with others. Doesn't have the usual hostel atmosphere, very clinical and seems to be full of groups of ozzy kids. Staff all seemed pretty fed up and weren't really engaging but were friendly and helpful enough.

Very nice hostel and really friendly and helpful staff. Didn't seem to be anyone else in the hostel though and I don't know if there was a common area or kitchen, I didn't see one. Only stayed one night, I'd be happy to stay there again if I went to Novi Sad again.

Superb really, provides everything you'd want in hostel and somehow seems to cater for all kinds of traveller without massively compromising the others. Kitchen is a bit small though, bit of a one pan meal job but it does it's job. Staff are excellent, friendly and full of banter.

Very nice hostel which is more like an apartment than a hostel. Owners are very nice and friendly as well which is bonus. Didn't see any other hostel users and you have to get buzzed in which feels abit awkward if you stay out late. Apart from that I would def recommend this hostel and would prob stay there again if I go to Nis,

Overall the hostel was good but it didn't live up to the hype of other reviews. There was no mention of the tour others have partaken in, we were only shown half of the facilities available to us and the door to the room wouldn't shut. Apart from this it was all good, so don't take this as a negative review, more as a reality check to the others.

Location wise this can be a bit tricky to find, especially in the dark, as the steps down to the hostel are basically through a hole in the floor. Located a bit out of Old Town, not too far and the view is spectacular. Bare in mind that if you don't take the right bus you will need to climb a steep hill and many steps to get to it. The owner is nice and friendly, the hostel is perfectly clean and had everything I needed. If I was going to Dubrovnik again I would check this place for vacancies
