“Amazing location and friendly service”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

We arrived very late into Dubrovnik and were having trouble locating the hostel. The Manager left the comfort of his bed to come and meet us and take us back which was greatly appreciated.

As far as the hostel is concerned, the location is second to none if you'd like to be within the Old Town. The friendly nature of the staff, the clean facilities and the simple yet tasty breakfast made life easy. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Overall enjoyed my stay at the oldtown hostel- you couldn't get a better position and the staff are great. The hostel itself is light and airy, with free tea and coffee all day. However the towels and some sheets appeared to be unwashed or stained, Which was a let down. If they fixed this small thing it would be great.

This hostel had a perfect location just inside the walls of the old city, the rooms were basic but clean, and the reception staff were really nice.

Breakfast, which was included, was muesli and milk, which suited me. It was quite loud with lots of people coming and going up the stairs (no lift) but that's hostels. Also the wooden floors were quite creaky.

The bathrooms are shared and there's one per floor, between six or eight people, so sometimes you have to wait a while. They have free wifi but the connection is weak if you're on the top floor.

This hostel is 30 seconds walk from Pile Gate, the main entrance that people enter Dubrovnik's 'Old Town' through. This enables you to have a great base for the duration of your stay.
I was greeted with a warm and friendly welcome after a long day travelling. My room was on the first floor and was a four bed female dorm. It was a large room with tasteful furnishings and was very clean. It had a sink and a pile of clean soft blankets to draw from.
There is a bathroom on each floor shared by two dorms. It is on the small side but the shower was good and it was essentially clean.
There is a kitchen with a generous supply of hot drinks, milk, muslei and fruit juice whenever you'd like it. There is free wifi and a laptop if you don't have a method to access the wifi.
My only negative point is that it is noisy. But not necessariy unpleasantly so; I could hear the piano in the nearby bar and the chinking of glasses was as bad as it got.
It's location was my saving grace when I wanted a lunchtime break from the city and dump my shopping bags. And why pay for a public lavatory when the hostel is so close by...?!
So big thumbs up for this place, it's a few quid more than you'd normally pay for a hostel but worth every penny in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
