The 15 Best Hostels in Dubrovnik

When choosing which of the best hostels in Dubrovnik you are going to book, we recommend keeping an eye on a few things.

  1. Style of the hostel – Dubrovnik has a ton of cool hostels and they all vary in prices. Find one that fits your style and budget. If you are looking for a quiet night in, don’t book a party hostel 😉
  2. Cost of the hostel – The best way to save money in Dubrovnik is by booking one of the best hostels in Dubrovnik. But you also have to make sure the hostel fits your budget. It might be tempting to book the flashiest hostel on the list, but sometimes it’s best to go simple and as cheap as possible.
  3. Freebies – But, having said that, some of the more expensive hostels are completely worth it. For instance if a hostel costs 5$ more a night, but offers free towels, tours and breakfast…. go for it. The extra 5$ you spend will quickly be made up by the freebies!
Psst! Heading to a hostel? Don’t forget to pack a padlock! It’s well worth having one so you can secure your locker and protect your stuff!

    Thanks so much for your post. I can’t find Hostel Angelina Northern anywhere else online. Has the name changed? Can you please provide another link to the site?

      Hi there! We aren’t really sure what happened to Hostel Angelina North. It kind of just dropped off the map, I am assuming they either closed down or it was our mistake with the name. Sorry about that. It’s a mystery! Anyway, hope you were able to find another awesome place to stay in Dubrovnik… Hostel Angelina South (not north!:)) is the best place in town.
