Best hostel in Dubrovnik

Super nice staff, very social and friendly atmosphere and the facilities are very clean. Nice showers as well

Check-in took a little while


25 September 2023

Friendly and clean hostel.

Location is right in the center. Kitchen to prepare your food. Nice terrace.

Accommodation is a bit overpriced. Kitchen and terrace is closed at 10 pm.

Clean and professional (but bring cash)

Incredibly clean, light, and airy rooms, with reasonably sized lockers. Amazing location. Good AC which is controlled by a remote in the room. Wide range of extras, though unfortunately most are very expensive.

Cash only, which means you get ripped off at the ATM. Approximately one shower per 10 people, so if you're unlucky you might be waiting quite a while.

Location is perfect. Room was clean and well maintained.

If you’re not in the main building, it’s harder to engage with the social scene - feels a bit ‘separated’. The kitchen is also tiny and the small fridge is definitely not enough to house all the travellers that stay. One of the two bathrooms in my building was also out of order for most of my stay. I think it’s quite pricey for a hostel imo, but I believe it’s the best you’ll get in old town.


18 September 2023

Very good

Make sure to book a room in the main building, not a four-person room. The main building was lively, but when I arrived I was informed I would be staying in an ‘annex’ that was nothing like the main building and escorted there, a 5- to 10-minute walk away. When I expressed surprise at hearing this and asked to switch to one of the 8- or 12-person dorms (the hostel could keep the difference of the price), the girl at the front desk told me it was in the listing and proceeded to PULL UP BOOKING.COM to prove a point. I hadn’t argued with her, so that felt very unwelcoming and not hospitable at all.

Great hostel

Great location! I was at a 4 beds dorms which wasn't in the main building, very nice and quiet:) The staff was amazing! Very nice, had good recommendations and available almost 24/7.

A bit expensive for dorms, but worth it.


13 September 2023

Great, friendly hostel - just what I needed for a short stay

The location is amazing! The little square is super cute, with restaurants and coffee spots but not noisy at night. Also, the staff were really nice and helpful. The showers were good, wifi was good, appreciate the handy power socket for each bed, and while the beds weren't huge, they were clean and comfy and solid - no wobbly bunks! And I know this was luck, but there were no snorers in the room, even in a mixed dorm - so nice :)

It had everything I needed for a night or two, but I'd recommend taking a bag that can slide under a bunk or fit into the locker as floor space is limited.


12 September 2023

The people in the hostel make it one of the best hostels!! Get ready for a lot of stairs tho. A lot. But its fine :)

Best staff ever, the nicest people i’ve met throughout my travels

Obviously it is really really pricy, but it applies to Dubrovnik in general


9 September 2023

great option to visit Dubrovnik

Both buildings of the hostel are super central! I stayed in the building upstairs - quite sporty, but not a problem if you don’t have a big luggage (i had only 1 small backpack). It was nice to sleep in a 5 bed rooms, although i booked the cheapest option for 10 or smth people - thanks for suggesting this option! Functional kitchen and beautiful terrace. Towels are provided (including beach towels !), very helpful and friendly staff. It was very hot, but the AC worked well !


9 September 2023

Great hostel, good kitchen

Great location, if you don’t mind stairs! Nice and quiet at night and great view

Only 1 toilet


8 September 2023


Amazing location. Super friendly staff with great recommendations. Fun, social vibe.

Not much


6 September 2023


location in city center, I was in main building, that was fine. they have proper lockers hostel activities

there are lot of buildings all over the city center,so thet it is possible you will be placed somewhere else.


4 September 2023


Excellent location, it is a very central and social hostel! They have a nice terrace in the main building where you can meet other guests, especially thanks to the daily hostel activities. Rooms and common facilities were quite clean and comfortable. You also can wash your laundry within 4hours which is pretty convenient.

It is a bit less social if you don’t stay in the main building (they have 6 different buildings) but then it is also nice to be in a quite area and join for the activities. Also the terrace closes at 10pm so you won’t have problems to sleep anyways.


3 September 2023

Only spent one night at Hostel Angelina but I wish I had stayed longer because the staff were fantastic and the environm

Great location with some awesome views further into the old town and beyond - into the ocean.

Small-ish showers in rooms


2 September 2023

I would love to go there again when I m not sick and enjoy the moment

Location and staff are super good and friendly also clean

Personally I was sick so I couldn’t enjoy any of social vibes and sleeping with so many people was not easy at all


2 September 2023

Private room in old town

We had a private room in a separate building to the main hostel. The location was excellent, right in the old town. The room was tidy and mostly had what we needed.

There were NO hooks in the room or places to hang anything. We were given bath towels and beach towels (amazing) and I don't know where we were expected to hang them! The shared bathrooms weren't always the cleanest but that's expected for a hostel/shared bathroom


1 September 2023

Very good place

They have different buildings around Old town, luckily we Got one that was central, nice shower and bathroom, and rooms Cool and friendly staff aswell

Nothing bad to say except the water in the kitchen sink didnt really Get hot to wash dishes, and they Should add more sitting space on the terrace since they fill up quickly when alot of people meet there 🤪

I got a smaller room with only 3 other women. Nice to have a kitchen included.


20 August 2023

Nice hostel with air conditioner and big kitchen.

Too much people in one room

Best backpacker in Dubrovnik, good for all ages, very social if you feel like

Location, it is perfect, seriously the best! The facilities were great as well. Nice and clean with air com. I booked a bed in a mix 12 bedroom, but actually I was in another building with only another 3 ladies. Way more espacious and less crowded room. So grateful they did since I am older than the average guys there. It was more my vibe. Very social backpacker. They have a whatapp group that you are free to join and they are very inclusive organising meet ups every day: sangría night, going to the beach together, cliff jumping, going out at night, etc. Front desk guys are very friendly and helpful. Thank you all!!! I definitely recommend it!! Best backpacker to stay in Dubrovnik when travelling solo and on a budget. Book it and enjoy Dubrovnik!

I really liked it. No fault at all.


14 August 2023

Great location and clean place!

The location is everything! It’s in the heart of the Old Town and walking distance to all the activities. It was also kept clean with updated bathroom facilities. Staff also nice.

Wish they offered female/male only dorms or ones with a lesser amount of people than 12. There were 3 people in mine who snored, which distrusted my sleep.


13 August 2023

Good location, nice staffs, policy for kitchen use is too restricted.

Good location.

The kitchen is forbidden for use from 10pm to 8am, which is far too long. I usually wake up early and need to cook after 6am.


11 August 2023

location made seeing Dubrovnik so easy. Hostel had great character and welcoming staff

location is fantastic, staff super friendly, WhatsApp group / activity to bring people together.

mixed dorm but I was only female so not very mixed!


10 August 2023

Very good

The bathrooms and showers were really nice ja spacious; there were also events everyday with the hostel like beach trips

The property has 6 buildings which you only find out when you arrive and climb up big stairs with luggage. I have never paid 50euros/night for a hostel and was shocked but as I understand this is common in Dubrovnik
