This place was one of my highlights on my Europe trip. I was travelling alone but Dink and his sidekick Marcos were really welcoming, plus the building has some great common areas and a balcony where you can meet other travellers and enjoy the hot summer nights. I didn't get to go on the pub crawl because the ocean was too rough for a booze cruise that night, but Marcos took a group of us out anyway which was awesome fun. You really are encouraged to party and be social, so if you're going for some quiet/relax time as I initially was, it's not really the vibe for that! that said, it's quiet enough at night so you can get a good sleep if you need to.
The rooms are clean, the shared bathroom and kitchen were a bit old-school but fine. Be prepared to walk up a pretty steep hill to get there, but hey, it's Croatia and totally worth it! I hope to stay at Dink's one day again!
