Red Dwarf Guesthouse
Ranked #30 of 181 Dubrovnik B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 3, 2013

I stayed in this guesthouse for 6 nights with 5 friends (July 2013). It is a charming family-owned hostel offering rooms at a very reasonable price. We occupied two rooms at the first floor: both were clean and comfortable, although the furniture was a bit old-fashioned. The owners, who live at the ground floor, were cheerful and welcoming. The wifi is free.

A big plus of this guesthouse is the view: absolutely stunning! From the balcony, I could see the whole bay with the Lapad peninsula and I could appreciate its beauty at different times of the day. The other side of the coin are the stairs: 277 steps to reach the hostel under the burning sun is not for everybody (a big incentive to spending the whole day out!).

The main drawback of this guesthouse is the bathroom: there is only one for up to 9-10 guests. While most of the times we had no problems with that, some evenings the waiting time for a shower was quite long. On the other hand, the bathroom was cleaned frequently.

The guesthouse is not within walking distance from the Old City (around 40 minutes), however it is located in an area which is well-served by local public transport (main bus station and port at a stone's throw) and shops. All in all, I was satisfied with this accommodation and I would definitely recommend it! Good value for money.

Room Tip: First floor, rooms on the left. They have a balcony (useful to dry swimsuits and towels) and a wonde...

I would recommend this place because it's cheap, confy and the owners are very friendly. Common areas are not very clean and you need to syncronize with other hosts to use them, but if you look for something cheap and without lot of requirements, it would be fine The best point is the great views to the port and the prize (probably the cheapest in Dubrovnik). The worst point is that it is at least 30 minutes walking from the town center. Note: Forget about using the car in Dubrovnik! It's a nightmare!

I booked this hotel for 3 nights but only stayed one night because I was traveling with elderly mother. We loved this guesthouse and would have stayed for a week if posible. The stairs up to the guest house from the water is hard. 300 steps but one of the owners will drive you and pick you up. This place has a fabulous view and the family that runs it is so friendly. Clean place. We decided to stay elsewhere for the reason that my mom needed air conditioning and we stayed at the Miljas Apartments down the hill. Both these places are near old town but you have to take the city bus or pay the owner at the Red Dwarf for rides.
