Property Description

Backpackers Home is a relaxed hostel with a huge communal area. Two shady terraces and a big outside kitchen are perfect for deep chilling, cooking together and meeting new people.
The Hostel is located in the Borik district, only a minute walk from the sea. To get to old town, it is either a 25 min walk (1.8K), or a 10 minute walk (with the help of a 1 euro rowboat ride). Within a radius of 20 meters of the hostel is a grocery store, bakery, bus stop and pharmacy. There are 4 public beaches nearby, from 5 and 15 minutes away. The highlight, the lively old town complex, is located on a peninsula, separated from the new town. A walk through the old town is like traveling back through time, and from there you can take cheap local ferries to the nearby islands to pristine beaches and beautiful hikes.

Local buses to and from the Main Station (Kolodvor) are frequent - from the main station take the 5A or 8A to Brodarica. From us, walk four minutes to Sfinga Cafe, then take the 5A or 8A to the main station. The bus schedule is not on google maps, but we are happy to help if you contact us. There are also frequent buses to and from the airport.

Great setup, with garden and terraces. Good vibe and communal atmosphere. Nice staff. Although it's further to town, there's a supermarket and bakery next door, and a great burger place nearby. Seemed to get bitten a bit by mosquitos in the dorm.

Fine. Comfy bed, nice shower, and friendly staff. But loads and loads of mosquitos everywhere. Barely slept because of the them. When I saw loads I mean I killed at least five in one night and still they kept coming. Neeeeeeehhh neeeee NEEE I've never seen more than 1 or 2 in any other hostel room. Maybe this place could use a fan or something to keep the air moving in the rooms?
