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!

    Possibly the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The owners are so kind and welcoming. You can walk from the bed into the lake, it's right outside the door. Perfectly secure, great rooms with AC and treasure chest lockboxes. Fully equipped kitchen. Be aware that it is a 45 minute walk into old town Kotor, but who cares when it's along a stunning coastline. Loved it so much, I´ve extended and stayed for two weeks. Very chill and relaxed.

    One of the BEST hostels I’ve ever stayed at. It feels like home & although it’s about 4km from the Old Town, I’m very happy that I chose to stay here than a place in the Old Town. The ocean views from your window, the ability to take a swim only steps from the entrance, the owners are incredibly lovely & SO kind, and it'a very clean hostel. I think this hostel attracts very easygoing & laid back individuals that are just looking to relax and have a chilled time. Highly recommend staying here!!!

    Awesome place by the bay and next to some great restaurants. Would definitely recommend staying here instead of in the old town. Sandra was very helpful in recommending places to see!

    Just sit on the veranda, admire the beautiful view across the bay, go for a bit of a swim and relax. Some people I travelled with from Podgorica didn't want to stay here because it was too far out of town, but once they came up to visit me they realized they should have done. Clean and comfortable, with a very friendly and helpful owner, on top of the fantastic location.

    A lovely couple has this hostel as part of their centuries old home - so you know they are there to make your stay a pleasant one. Clean & comfortable. The place is pure charm!!! Love going out the hostel door a few steps to their ‘ponta’ and diving into the sea. Good restaurants nearby. Do rent a bike for the day as an option to get into town.

    Good sized kitchen for food. Location is a bit out of kotor but right on the bay with their own dock and great for a more chill place. My first night I sat with the owner and his friends drinking beer, couldnt understand alot but had a great time! So welcoming and friendly. Good treasure chest to lock belongings. Good bathroom. Not hostel related but its 8 euros from bus station in taxi. Dont get cabs with guys at station when off the bus. Unmetered, wanted 15. Walk round to front of old town

    A very special hostel in a stunning location right on the bay, far enough outside the town to feel quiet and tranquil, but still in walking distance. The staff were so friendly and accommodating, and we were even leant a backpack for a few days for hiking, as we didn’t have one with us. Stranger Tides is great value for money, and the atmosphere was cosy, safe and friendly. We would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Kotor.

    I stayed for 2 nights for a solo travel. The place is far from Kotor if you wanna go by walking (45 min) so it's better to take a cub from the Bus Terminal in Kotor (€4-€5, 15 min or less). Even when the place is far from the city the landscape is amazing and you will have no regret about the location. The hostel itself is comfy and clean (AC, bathrooms in every floor, big kitchen, nice beds) and the staff (the owners) is really helpful. Negative: the smoke smell the whole time at the entrance
