When I stayed here, it was a pretty wild atmosphere. The outdoor terrace is a great way to meet fellow travelers. I don't know if the hostel has some kind of "social magic" or if it was just the people there at the time I was there. It's about a five-minute walk to the old town. Nothing is too far away.
We asked for 2 rooms, twin ensuite and the very helpful Sergio gave us two apartments! Two of the girls were on the bottom floor, and two of us were on the top floor, a further 30 steps on top of the 110 to get to the house. Still, the views were stunning, and we could hear the students in the nearby music school practicing and they were superb! Accommodation was spotless and airy and bright. Kitchen facilities. Own water heater. Fridge - very important!!! Not suitable for people afraid of steps, and bare in mind you will have to bring up your own suitcases/backpacks...but so very worth it!!! They have about 7 houses in total, scattered around the old town.
Unique Quality: Fantastic view!!! A real sense of living in the city. No curfew. No reception desk either, but Sergio was always a text message away! Found it on Hostelworld.com
As a solo traveller hostels are invaluable for meeting other travellers. However DUbrovnik hostel made me think again. It is not only dirty, unhygienic, unorganised but the staff are also rather abrupt (bordering completely rude arrogant and unhelpful). Bathroom is dirty and often smells of urine. The breakfast is included but very poor in quality. The hostel is usually full of school kids , making your stay less eventful. In fact the booking system favours school kids over backpackers eg. If a group of school kids booked in advance you will be most likely asked to leave even if you have been staying there.
Due to the curfew, ,people jump in windows and stay in anyone else's floor so don't expect any security.
Famous line from the less than charming receptionist : "if you have a problem don't temm me,tell yourself !"
I would strongly advise against staying there, your best bet is private home stays in Dubrovnik, better value for money and yes you will still have the opportunity to mingle with other travellers.
Unique Quality: Dirty bathrooms, smells of urine
This is a nice friendly hostel in the Lapad area of Dubrovkik - up on the hill from the fortified town. It''s nice and clean; rooms have 4 or 6 beds and are spacious. There''s also a large patio to sit outside, and the hostel, if you want, also provides you with cheap meals.
Unique Quality: Lapad is a nice area in Dubrovkik: it''s a 15 minutes walk from the entrance of the fortified town (but there are buses too) and it's only 5 minutes away from lovely beaches
Directions: not far from the bus station... the best way to find it is to ask locals for directions to bourbon street
