“As good as lime in a Corona”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Old town hostel was one of the best hostels ive stayed in through my 5 month trip throughout all of europe, it was so homely i spent 3 extra days and had to force myself to catch a bus out of there. The staff are super awesome, ross and martin are always good fun (depending on who is taking the night shift haha). What more could you ask for in a hostel when they put on drinks down in the common room for you to meet other travellers when u are travelling alone? Thats the best kind of atmosphere! If you are leaving from here to Albania (tirana) i would recommend going through macedonia for a few nights first as it is like death travelling through Albania. Overall this hostel is definitely 5/5 for being pro and full of awesome peeps

I don't normally leave reviews but I feel I have to for old town kotor. The hostel is equipped with everything you will need for your stay, it is centrally located and has a great atmosphere. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. The lobby common area is a great place to meet guests. The hostel organises day trips and night activities to satisfy different tastes. The staff even helped me organise my next destination and hostel in Montenegro.
The staff are friendly and made me feel at home, thanks to Slavenko, Ross, Martin and Dijana for making my stay a great experience!

If you like beautiful scenery, great activities, reasonable prices, lovely old medieval buildings, partying and hosts who are really cool, open, friendly, welcoming, helpful and always prepared to join you on a night out... you will love this place! I will definitely be returning!

look, I'm an older guy [36] who isn't much into the party scene when it comes to hostels - which is what I thought HOT was going to be. it was not. were there parties? sure. but they were all downstairs in the cafe area. all of the staff was amazingly helpful with where to eat, where to drink, what to see, etc - even got a chance to pull the owner, Ross, away and ask him about music in/around the area. highly suggested.

note: the below review can be summed up in her final sentence: '... and gave us free drinks.' hard to take a negative review seriously when this is what she considers to be deserving of a compliment.

Yes, it's probably the best hostel you'll find throughout your journey. No need to spend more words on this. But there are a couple a things I'd like to point out. Rooms are noisy at night. Either you leave the windows open or you turn on A/C, this isn't a place for light sleepers. And then, when you book online check in is supposed to be at 9 am, but then it turns out to be at 11 am. Also, this is probably the only hostel in the world where check in and check out time coincide (11 am). End of the story: we got our beds at 12 am. Enjoy it!
