“Suitable for the cool”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

A nice cozy family run hostel run by the Perkovic family offers a refreshing change from other hostels. Its run like a family, so you get initiated with a glass of honey liquor! Rooms are nice and clean with no mosquitoes, and hot water is always available. The hostel provides transport service from Dubrovnik Airport. Other services include breakfast (simply divine, with Mrs Perkovic filling your plate with her marvellous french toast!) at 20 kunas, as well as cooking with fish and seafood from the fish market. Even though it is not located in the Old Town, it is accessible by foot or by bus. And if you are lucky, Nikola, the youngest member of the family may take you around the city! A great place for beginning travellers!

I've stayed in hostels all over Europe and Asia, but this is seriously the best ever!!! If you're looking for a place to stay in the very beautiful city of Dubrovnik, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stay here. The place has a lovely atmosphere as it's run by a family who are so kind, helpful, friendly and fun. Highlights include a free pick up from the harbor, brilliant breakfasts, great advice on what to do in the area, and affordable day trips to stunning places. On my first day one of the sons even showed me around Dubrovnik for the day - I was so impressed! Probably the best short holiday I've ever had - thanks a lot guys!

This was hands down the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The family is absolutely great and do a great job making you feel welcome. The 20 kuna breakfasts are something to look forward to, Milka does a great job making sure that you don't need to eat until dinner! The place is very clean and the common area is a perfect setting to meet new people. Although it isn't right next to the Old Town, it is a very easy walk and makes for an overall better experience by making you see parts of the city that you wouldn't see otherwise. Overall a great experience and if I am ever planning a trip to Dubrovnik again I know where I'm going!

Room Tip: They are all great

From the free pickup at the bus station to the home cooked meals at night the DBC was the highlight of my trip to Europe. The family does a tremendous job running this hostel offering breakfast in the morning, providing clutch advice on restaurants and beaches, and organizing day trips out to some amazing places. The location was perfect and it made my last week in Croatia amazing. I'd recommend this hostel to everyone I know!

An absolutely amazing place! The hostel is ran by a beautiful family who couldn't do more for you... Milka makes the most fantastic breakfast... it can not be missed! The family also organise day trips (small groups) and tailor as best as they can to your needs and know places you'd never find alone. The family make you feel at home and I learnt so much of the recent history of the country! Even in the busy Summer months when other sites say they are full... give them a call as they know people in the community who could put you up. I ended up staying in a gorgeous double room in a house down the road with my friend and was still part of the DBC family! I stayed for 5 nights and could have spent longer there! I would not hesitate in reccomending this place... it is slightly more than other hostels but it is worth every single penny!

Room Tip: Ask for dorm NOT next to the communal room as it can get noisy if other are meeting for a night out...
