“Surprisingly cool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

I booked this hostel for two nights and ended up staying six... Alex the manager said, "I love my residents" - as in, the people who stay longer than just a few nights. It's easy to stay here a while and just take life as it comes.

This hostel has you covered for chilling out, partying, organised tours, and cool staff. I met some awesome people staying here.

Unfortunately the bathroom in the room I stayed for the first two nights is poorly ventilated and smells like mould/mildew unless it's JUST been cleaned. I was moved, after my initial booking of two nights, and the second room I stayed in was just lovely. There was a line with pegs outside the window so I could hang my clothes to dry!

I went on a really cool kayaking trip organized by the hostel on my birthday and when an ATM/cash machine ate my debit card on a Saturday the hostel staff offered to lend me money until Monday when I could get it back. I didn't need their money but it was a really kind gesture.

I think you should stay in this hostel if you can because of the brilliant staff and the relaxed atmosphere. It's nice to have it as a base and explore other areas from because it's very close to the Kotor bus station.

Room Tip: Ask for room number six!

Stayed here 2 nights in June. The Hostel has a very tranquil relaxed feel about it. Plenty of people around to meet and chat with. Being located in the old town is great. the staff are fantastic.

Very recently opened hostel when I stayed. Staff were amazing and were more than happy to answer all questions. Great times to be had at Old Town and highly recommended. Great price also even during peak season. Book ahead!
