The Dubrovnik Youth Hostel is your typical HI hostel. Not a party scene, rather institutional but clean and well run. It does resemble a college dorm a bit. My 5 bed dorm room was a bit on the small side and the giant wardrobe really wasn't meant for storing bags and luggage. The bed was comfortable but I was the... More

I stayed here as part of tour group and 4 of us, in 3 different rooms, were badly attacked by bed bugs. I wouldn't recommend this hostel to anyone! In addition, the staff were extremely rude & went as far a yelling at us. The food was terrible. Nothing good to say at all.

The hostel was incredibly hot. We were lucky enough to have a room with a balcony and we ended up sleeping on the balcony every night. The room was just too hot to get any good sleep. The hostel is about a 15 minute walk to the Old Town and there is an awesome swimming area that is about a... More

The hostel is a solid 20min trek (uphill!) from Dubrovnik Old Town so getting there lugging suitcases was horrible. We arrived, dripping in sweat to be told that we couldn't check in for another 6 hours. When we finally got in our rooms the mattresses were filthy, covered in hair & there was one PowerPoint for 6 beds. The hostel... More

My body currently resembles a piece of early Damien Hirst art work, covered in angry red spots. I dont know what I must have done to anger the very mediocre staff of Youth Hostel Dubrovnik but clearly they put me in their bed bug feeding den. There must have been a good few hundred beg bugs as never, on all... More

This hostel is not a nice place. It is outdated and ridiculously hot, with no air conditioning in the rooms (which are stuffed full of people) and only small windows. There is no atmosphere at Dubrovnik Youth Hostel, with no communal areas or anywhere to chill out. It is a pretty boring place. It is still about a half hour... More

Stayed here in peak summer season, hostel staff were rude and lost our room key twice and blamed us both times even though they had misplaced it. Very strict on hostel 'rules' even though no one was given rule list.. Location is okay bit of a walk into town but would not stay here again!

The best part about this hostel is the supermarket around the corner, a local pizza restaurant and a rock to jump off on the way to the old town. Interior of the YHA Dubrovnik leaves something to be desired. Service is what you would expect for £15 a night. The rooms are hot and basic, showers are good, breakfast is... More

The YHA in Dubrovnik is a good value hostel considering the cost of other accommodation during peak season. The YHA is located about 20-25 mins walk from the Old Town (Pile Gate). It is a fairly comfortable walk without a pack! There are good beaches nearby the hostel and some more affordable cafes and restaurants. The YHA is very clean... More

Maybe because I was very tired, but this was one of the best sleeps I had this summer. The beds are typical bunk beds, but everything was clean and the matresses comfortable and firm. Clean bathrooms! We had a nice terrace in our dorm (which had 4 beds) from where you could see all Dubrovnik and a port. It was... More
