    Best hostel ever, and completely heartwarming experience. Family run hostel with the kindest, sweetest, most hospitable owners ever. They make you feel like family and go out of their way to make sure you’re having a good stay. Great location, a vibrant part of town. Short walk to the beach, and a short walk to lots of bars and restaurants. It’s super clean, a kitchen, a patio, a TV room with movies, lots of bathrooms and showers, all the amenities a backpacker could ever need. Was sad to leave!

    Booked one night, ended up staying for 4! Amazing family owned and run hostel. You are treated with love and kindness from all of the family! Our host mom was incredible, preparing us little treats and coffee! "Little John" took us on an amazing private boat tour around the islands, to a secluded beach, and into the caves! It was an experience you do not want to miss. It was a great place to meet other travelers! I will definitely be back!

    I really enjoyed everything about this hostel. Great communication before I arrived, sending me detailed instructions of how best to reach the hostel, giving a stress free arrival after my early flight. A really warm welcome too, including a drink and snack. The bus stop is just down the road, making it super easy to get around - about 15 mins bus ride to get to the old town. There's also nice beaches nearby. Lovely communal spaces and atmosphere. Thank you

    This Hostel is amazing the family never forgets your name and welcomes you into their heart and home. Will suggest it to anyone. Nice and quiet at night and easy to access all the great sights of the city using the public transport. The regular activities such as snorkelling are fantastic, its the personal touches that make this place a home away from home. The family are there to help you with what ever you require. Facilities are super clean and common areas are welcoming. Thank you!

    I loved my stay at DBC! The facilities were very clean. They offer a snorkeling tour and I highly recommend it. Evee (I know I spelled that wrong, sorry!) was a wonderful guide and we got to see many fish in the Adriatic Sea on the trip, and I even got to hold an octopus. Where DBC shines is the absolutely lovely family that runs the place. Milka and her husband are wonderful people and I will miss them a lot. Thank you Milka, Evee, and family, I won't soon forget you guys. ♥♥♥

    This gem of a hostel is run by a delightful couple who welcomed me with open arms, including pouring me a glass of wine and serving me a delicious dinner. I was there at a relatively slow time, but the hostel is extremely well designed for group comradery. Good for a solo traveler looking to meet people. It's just a short bus ride from old-town Dubrovnik and is close to markets, bars, and restaurants.

    The hostel is far from the Old Town but there is a bus stop next to the hostel and it is a 15 minutes ride. The family who runs the hostel is great.

    Up on a hill, this hostel offers good location if you want to explore the Lapad area in Dubrovnik which is a great choise to the crowded old town area. There are many beaches near. The hostel itsel is an apartment with a few dorms and the doors are apparently always open. The hostess is lovely and the view from the balcony to Gruz harbour is great.
