Liked: Anthony is a very friendly and helpful person, who speaks good English. He told us everything we would need to know. Also he gave us a ride back to the busstation on the day of leaving. Kitchen has everything you need and the bathroom is very clean.

Disliked: It is far away from the old town. It is definitely 30-45 minutes walking, but close to the place there is a bus which departs every half an hour. It is not advisable to walk it to the hostel, because is it very high up the mountain, and you really have to climb!

Liked: Nicky is a great guy takes you in and treats you like family. If you are travelling on a budget he can give you an idea of what to avoid so you dont get taken for a ride. If you arent travelling on a budget he can certainly show you how to have a good time. We've offered to have him stay with us next time he's in Australia. That's how nice a guy he is.

Disliked: its a bit of a walk to Grad. other than that nothing.

Liked: Nicky goes above and beyond as a host. It's like staying with the Croatian family you never knew you had. He will pick you up from the bus station for free. You get a welcome drink (or more if you are lucky). Nicky set up the tv outside so we could watch a soccer match. This is one of my favorite Hostels ever.

Disliked: Nothing :)

Liked: Nicky is awesome. From the get go, he was out to help us in anyway possible. took us on his boat for a cruise (it cost a bit of money, but well worth it). Provided us with a map and things to see that werent all on the tourist network, in this way, we skipped away from being drawn in to paying huge amounts of money, for not really any benefit. His dog was a huge hit with my travelling companions as well. His family are all lovely and helpful, and Nicky is willing to organise almost anything for you.

Disliked: Can't really say anything wrong about this place, besides the large hill at the end of the day is a bit of a struggle. However, there is a bus to catch that saves a lot of trouble.

27 August 2011 Reuben would recommend this property

Liked: Nicky is, as a prior correspondent said "the bomb". He's a hugely enthusiastic expert on the local area and the general art of partying. He's impossible not to like and I get the feeling that he is genuinely as keen for you to enjoy your stay as you are. Rooms are adequate and cheap, and we had access to a balcony with one of the most stunning views of Dubrovnik you could hope for. The overall atmosphere was a tad young for our liking - we're no longer 18 year olds out on our first backpacking trip - but if we were, Nicky Guesthouse would have been the greatest stay in history.

Disliked: Although ideal for the backpacker crowd, Nicky Guesthouse is quite a loud place, the beds are bloody awful and it could have been significantly cleaner. It's seven minutes walk to the bus station however more like 45 from it due to the ENORMOUS hill it's at the top of - take Nicky's offer of a lift or jump bus number 8! However, keep it in perspective - this is a great place to stay!

27 August 2011

Liked: The price and the view from the hill. Dubrovnik itself is incredible.

Disliked: 1) It was dirty, there were ants everywhere inside and the floor was not clean. 2) When we arrived, there was a mix up with our booking so we were sent further up the hill to stay with a family member. They made us feel very uncomfortable and followed us around, we were not allowed to use the kitchen or the air con and we were not even given a key to lock/un lock the front door. 3) The room we were then moved to, was not big enough for 4 beds so the door had to be wedged open. 4) The shower would not drain, and the toilet seat had fallen off, neither of these things were fixed or even looked at in the 5 nights we stayed. 5) The property is really far out of Dubrovnik, about 45minutes walk and the bus is really infrequent and takes almost as long. 6) Nicky claims he will pick you up and deliver you, welcome drinks, food etc but we got none of these perks, we turned down a boat trip he offered us because it was 100euros, we then found out that others were offered the same trip for 45 euros each. He was really negative about booking any activities or trips such as kayaking (which was great fun) and discouraged us from exploring the newer town (where we found the better quieter beaches), as well as eating out.

Liked: When you stay at Nicky Guesthouse, you feel like a part of Nicky's family. Nickey is really nice and very proud of his country. He will help you in anyway to have the best time in Dubrovnik. He organised a boat ride for us using his family boat and let us experience a full course Croatian dinner cooked by his mum. We got along very well with the other guests and had a great time.

Disliked: The guesthouse is on a hill but there is a bus stop close by and if it is possible, Nicky drives to where you need to go.
