Liked: The location, near the bus stop and main gate to the old city.

Disliked: The 2 dorms (for 12 people) are on 2 levels deep down in a basement with no windows or natural lighting (although there's a ventilation system and a/c permanently on). Both are connected by stairs and open to each other as well as the kitchen/dining area (which is very sparsely equipped) so there's no way of shutting out ceiling lights, noise or kitchen smells. The unique toilet and small bathroom are located on 2 different higher levels on the way out through the main door so it's not very convenient to use them, especially as they are too small to be able to change in them.

Liked: The location of the property is so handy and Neno, the owner, is very friendly and helpful. There is a common area which makes it good to meet other travellers and the air conditioning is refreshing when you come back from a hot day.

Disliked: I do not think the hostel is worth the money you pay but you are paying for location. It was a little messy and the kitchen facilities are below average. It is underground which is fine if you know what you're getting in to, just be aware that you will have no natural light to wake you up!

Liked: Good location, key and you get your own key. Plug available at the bed. The owner is helpful and tells you what to see and do.

Disliked: It's more like a budget appartment in a basement with shared rooms. On itself good but it is dark and lacking character.

Liked: Neno the owner is superb. His a local that loves Dubrovnik and will tell you all the awesome places to go. He waits at the bus for you to come in and will show you to the hostel which is in a perfect location! Just outside the main gates, couldn't beat it!

Disliked: -Limited items to cook with in the kitchen. Given Dubrovnik is an expensive place for a backpacker it would be great to have utensils to work with in the kitchen.

Liked: Not much. Hot shower and heater/air-co available.Location is convinient.

Disliked: I had read this was in a basement. Let me specify basement without windows.Kitchen is connected to bedrooms ensuring smells fill the bedrooms as well. My room was open in the top to the kitchen/living area, noise, smells and light coming into my room.Shower and toilet are tiny and look worn out. This is the kind of place you look to avoid by reading reviews!Main door must be locked by key and as there no other exits you really hope there won't be any Fire in the kitchen during the night.Truth must be said that it was clean.
