Property Description

Our place is perfect for solo adventurers, business travellers, families with kids, groups and couples, who need accommodation with great location at low cost. You can rent a bed, a room, or entire house depending on availability.

We are located at the seafront in beautiful Fjord of Boka Bay that offers stunning views as well as many exciting walks and tours. This property has been home to our family for many generations. The original stone house/museum was built over 1000 years ago, in the Mediterranean style typical to this region. Dobrota is a residential Kotor neighborhood, just outside of Old Town. The hostel is situated few meter of the sea. Our surroundings are tranquil and peaceful - perfect for a romantic getaway, or for relaxation after a long day of sight-seeing. Access to the sea is about 150 meters downhill, where you can do as the locals do and dive into the sea from the many 'pontas' lining the coastline. Famous beaches 'Orahovac', 'Plavi Horizonti', 'Bajova Kula', and 'Jaz' are within a 20-40 minute drive.

While developing our property, which now includes Stranger Tides Hostel, we maintained the look and design to match the original build of the house, working with local stones and wood for all the exteriors of rooms so the rooms looks like a rooms in big old ship of 17 century. The interiors are hand made, clean and elegant!

    Best decision to book this hostel, away from the bustle and crowds of Kotor and Budva. The bay views are unmatched and the value is unbeatable! I wish I stayed longer!

    The nicest hostel I've ever stayed in, the location is absolutely perfect if you want a more chilled out vibe, you walk straight out of the hostel into the sea! It's incredible! Is quite far from the old town but perfect if you just want to laze around by the sea all day, not touristy or busy at all and still relatively easy to get to the old town in a cab or bus if needs be. The share dorm was lovely, a light, plug and curtain on the bed, and the owners are friendly and chilled out. 10/10

    Had a great time here! Its kinda far from town, but I'd usually walk one way & take the bus/ taxi back to balance it out! It feels quite exclusive. There is a shaded area next to the water, where we would sit, drink beer and swim to our hearts content. Its really peaceful & relaxing but also fun, met some really cool other backpackers there! The captain is a real character who manages to make everyone laugh with his funny anecdotes! Felt like a home away from home. Highly reccomend.

    I found this hostel to be fantastic! It is a 50 minute walk from Kotor which means that there is a more relaxed feeling and the people seemed a lot more laid back. You have access to a seating area right on the bay. I would highly recommend for an extremely relaxing and positive experience with very hospitable members of staff.

    Absolute loved my time at Stranger Tides — so much so that it was hard to leave! Staying further out from Kotor was a great decision, the hostel is right by the water — wake up in morning, have breakfast on the dock and jump in the water. The staff were so friendly and attentive (especially the Captain!). The decor was stunning and added so much character — will be recommending this place to everyone!

    This place was beautiful and the rooms have lots of space! The sea is literally crossing the street. Is a little bit far from Old Town Kotor (50 min walk aprox), but it makes it a much quiet place to spend some relax time. The day I left the owner was going to help me get a taxi to town but he didn't show up on time so a miss my bus and had to buy a new ticket. This is the only reason why I'm not giving it a 10. But Overall it was an amazing experience and would love to stay here again.

    This hostel felt like home. Over the past 10 years I have visited in many hostels in Southeastern Europe and Stranger Tides is most likely the best of them all. You can't beat this location: the hostel is 10 meters from the sea. So I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to spend their days by or in the sea. Furthermore, the owner is really friendly and welcoming and engaged with running the hostel.

    Stranger Tides is a lovely little hostel right on the Bay of Kotor. It is an hour walk from the bus station which might be an issue for some people but was ideal for me. They do offer to call you a taxi if you need it. I arrived in the morning and relaxed by the ocean all day, living the resort lifestyle on a backpacker budget, you can't go wrong! Nice facilities, really clean and super great people.

    Beautiful hostel and extremely unique. Very relaxed. The owner ordered us a cab to the bus station. Quite far out but a nice walk along the sea into Kotor. Very quiet plus aircon 😊

    This would have been a great hostel if the wife who usually runs it were present, but unfortunately I arrived the day she gave birth and was then gone for the week. So my experience here was made stressful by the husband attempting to run the hostel which failed miserably - the kitchen was constantly a mess and he was unaware of the number of beds available everyday. However, the beds and room were very comfortable and the bay right out front is truly spectacular. I just came at the wrong time
