Montenegro Hostel 4U
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 14, 2013

This hostel is very close to the pebble beach in Kotor. The staff were very nice, as were the other guests. Each room has a bathroom and windows with amazing views. Many common areas to hang out and meet other travellers. Lots of local students are also staying here. The kitchen is lacking a lot of utensils, so be sure to bring your own. Bathrooms could be cleaner. All in all, worth it to stay here for great location, atmosphere and price.

Met people in Budva, Montenegro who were strongly recommending this hostel in Kotor -which was good as we had already booked for the next night! The only time in our trip around Europe that we didnt get lost trying to find a hostel! They had a poster with a map on it in Kotor Bus Station. It showed us exactly where to go and was maybe a fifteen minute walk. Right next to the beach, our dorm room had an amazing view and you could hear the sea from my bunk. Air conditioned all around the hostel and the common room was brilliant! Only thing they could improve on was staff managing! Heard from travellers in Budva before that the staff didnt manage it well. Apparently kept moving people from bunk to bunk, room to room, floors etc. So when we got there we werent suprised to see girls sleeping in the men only dorms and that two people were assigned the same bed! All got sorted out, and definitely was one of the best hostels we stayed in!

Not a far walk from the bus station and was the easiest hostel to find on our travels. The place is right next to the beach which was nice and quiet to relax on during the day. The rooms were nice with air conditioning and a bathroom for each room. The common room was nice as well, with a kitchen, sofas, tables, tv and computer. The only negative was that people kept getting switched around to different rooms and so when i came back from the beach one day, i found someone else's stuff all over the bed i was told i was sleeping in. The hostel staff had no idea herself what had happened as she had shown me the bed that morning. At midnight, i still hadn't found who's stuff it was and so went back to the lady and asked what was happening. Looking not very happy that i had asked, the women looked around and found an empty bed, laid it and said i was sleeping there instead. So not the greatest organisation I thought and from other travelers they felt the same. However for the price and the brilliant location, i would recommend travelers to stay here.

The hostel is fine. It has a mix of dorm rooms with a slightly unusual layout that separates the dorms a bit more which I think makes it more comfortable. It is fairly clean. The bathrooms are in need of repair/upgrade and smell bad. It is about a 20 min walk from the bus station with a pack on. It is located across the road from a small beach and 50m from a small grocery store. The hostel has air conditioning in the dorm rooms which is good in summer. It is a friendly place that is good but nothing special. There is a small kitchen for self catering on the top floor in the common room. The common room is closed at about 10-11pm each night.

Worse hostel till now. Didn't feel like home at all, booked via hostelworld, but they didn't check their e-mail so it was not sure if there was a bed for us....! Everything is chaos, hostel is occupied by students, which feels weird, like people living at the hostel. So now traveller atmosphere at all. Was not clean. Location is good, it is cheap and we slept, but that was all.

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was great. The hostel is right by the water and there are a few bars and restaurants allong the front. The old town is a 10-15 minute walk away but quite a pleasant walk. If you go in the west entrance by the shopping mall that is a quick way to get into the old town. Our room was clean but it was pretty hot. We happened to be there when it was 40 degrees though!

The owner/manager is hilarious! very dry sense of humour that seems to have upset some visitors but he is a really cool guy and looks like Charlie Sheen! We found him very helpfull. The hostel was very friendly and we would highly recomend staying there.

So far my worst hostel / hotel / homestay / B&B whatever experience.

These three things really pushed me to the limits with the staff here..

1 - No fan / AC in the room on a hot and humid summer day with temperatures hitting 34 deg C. When asked for a fan we were told that there are no fans in the premises.. funny

2 - Booked an en suite room and ended up with a room without a toilet, a toilet near the common lounge area is supposedly the toilet for your use, it had a board stuck on it which read "This toilet belongs to the private en suite room" there were no keys provided to the toilet, this toilet is a launderette with washing machine and dryer inside.

3- All our questions to the staff were responded with a standard and straight face replies of "NO"

Well typically one dosen't expect much out of a hostel but when owners don't keep up to the promises made during booking, it is very annoying... This hostel unfortunately way down that path.

My suggestion is "DO NOT STAY" here....

Room Tip: Do not book the en suite room chances are you will end up with a room with a common toilet next to t...
