Situated in central Budva this hostel/guest-house is a reasonable prospect for anybody looking for quality and value in an enviable location. It's within walking distance of the bus station and the beach and the local neighbourhood is a quiet residential area with restaurants, shops and a supermarket nearby.
The private bedrooms each have self-contained bathrooms leading off from small hallways. The furnishings were basic, although the rooms did have A/C, fridges and (very small) TV sets. There were also outdoor seating areas, a small garden, a communal terrace and a lounge. Good WiFi available in all areas and information/maps available (+ photo-copies of newspapers!).
The decor is quite tired and there are plenty of squashed insects on the paintwork, mattresses were on the thin side as were the rather threadbare towels. There were no toiletries available either so it's a case of bring your own...Also don't forget your insect repellant and a fly-swat to keep the bugs at bay...
There was a very easy-going vibe and the live-in owner/manager was an amiable character who was ready to give help and assistance whenever required. All in all The Mojo offered a sound place to rock-up for a few days when the holidaymakers were fewer and further between....I couldn't help but feel that it could have done with just a bit more 'Mojo' although to be fair you get what you pay for...
I have to say that visiting a place like Budva in the low season is part of it's appeal for me...I travelled through Montenegro back in the summer and I can't say that this particular resort was a very attractive prospect (due to being really over-crowded and over-priced)...However, if you are looking for a beach resort in Montenegro's 'riviera' then this would seem to be it, although at the time of writing the beaches were all dirty and practically deserted.
All things considered I've stayed in worse places and paid a great deal more for the privilege so as a single traveller on a lay-up for a few days it did the trick.
