Liked: If you took the bus from Old Town it wasn't that far. The staff was helpful. The bathrooms and showers were plenty and nice. There is a terrace where you can sit outside.

Disliked: The was no air conditioning in a hot room. The general atmosphere of the hostel was blah. The key system is the dumbest I've ever seen. The breakfast was not worth it.

Liked: Staff helpful, always someone mopping/cleaning halls and bathrooms, breakfast was basic but included which was good, good location for price.

Disliked: As per reviews, minimal signage on street to find it - look for the Hostel International signs and go up the stairs.

Liked: It was about a 20 min walk from Old Town. For the location it was good value for money. There were plenty of toilets and showers and breakfast being included was a bonus.

Disliked: There was not muc atmosphere in this hostel. It was pretty tricky to find. I walked from the Old Town and asked a few locals on the way who had no idea where it was.It doesn't really come up on Google Maps very well. I was lucky to see a small sign saying hostel and the actual street was on a lane with steps.

Disliked: Far from the old town, rooms with very old furniture and incredible hot durring the summer, they have a very old computer that you can use only for 15 min, everything seems old and at the breakfast they serve it only for one hour, if you go before 8 they will lock the kitchen(?!)

Liked: It was as cheap as you can find in Dubrovnik and not too far from the old town (about a 15-20 min walk). There are a lot of showers so you don't need to wait.

Disliked: There was no AC so it was very hot. The hostel is very big and crowded and there were school groups of teenagers which was very annoying. There was only 1 computer for the whole hostel. They only have one key per room so you have to leave the key at the reception, it's a weird system. The place is kind of hard to find when you first get into town.

Liked: this is a great hostel to stay if you love sleeping in a sauna. With no fans or ac the rooms are a sweat box. not the best value for money, but there is not much else cheaper on the internet.. plenty of touts next to the bus station that have cheaper rooms

Disliked: no wifi

Liked: location relative to old city.

Disliked: Aside from lack of air conditioners in the rooms, there's no fans even and we had to keep the door to the room open to get a cross breeze between the window and the air conditioner in the hall. Then they turned off the air conditioner in the hall in the middle of the night. I was tempted to sleep on the floor in the hall. Pillows awful; hurt my neck from lack of any support. Didn't know the showers were on a different floor. No wifi. Kitchen was not good. No value for money.
