Backpackers' dream! the authenticity of the place is preserved, with all modern facilities well functioning. Great spacious rooms, nice friendly and helpful staff at reception, perfect location for visiting surroundings, great deals (for stay, meals..), wifi works, hot water, nice common room to meet up with others and extend the party into the night... A must stop!

This hostel has 3 separate buildings that each contribute to the hostel. I like the way it is layed out and creates a different dynamic from every other hostel. In particular, i really enjoyed the history behind the hostel - it stands strong at 800 years old and many artefacts and replicas can be found amongst the walls and rooms....

There are beautiful common areas, the internet connection in the rooms is very strong & fast and the general atmosphere of the hostel is great. An example of what...

The hostel is very well-equipped and clean, the common areas are great and the staff the most welcoming. They always have a theme night and they really care about their guest. Another thing that is worth mentioning is that in the common area / social area, they have no WiFi! Which is amazing because you actually TALK with other people,...

Had a good few days here, location is great, right in the heart of the gorgeous old town. Very warm welcome from the staff, room was lovely. Good value for money, especially as Kotor is firmly on the crusie ship / package tour circuit and other accomodation is super expensive.

The Old Town Hostel in Kotor is a very unique place. The somehow historic building, right in the old town (surprise!) of Kotor has a very nice atmosphere, even though it has so many beds. It still feels very natural, personal and charming. The staff is very caring and professional.

The hostel adds unusual little extras that help enhance your experience in this charming old town: budget meals - breakfast and dinner. (two for one price) In the dorms a little reading lamp is provided along every bed! Yes, you can keep on reading that book without compromising with others. Little blinds/curtains around the lower beds, so you are more...

Charming 13th and 14th century renovated stone-walled buildings in the perfect location (old town and minutes away from the fortress stairs). The staff are top-notch! Extremely friendly, helpful, and easy to connect with from the get-go. :) I definitely recommend joining for the delicious dinner served each night (and a hearty breakfast the following morning:)). Kotor is a magical city...

I'm already planning my return. Firstly the city is like the most magical place ever! It was genuinely painful having to leave. The hostel is tucked away in the gorgeous winded cobbled streets of the old town and maintains the feel of the ancient setting it's in. Lovely architecture and accommodating and friendly workers. Also really well priced breakfast and...

The hostel is cosy with all the amenities and would definately stay again in spite of the early (6am) morning church bells. We came in the off season and had 2 perfect days to climb and explore the mountains and bay - it was nice wondering the narrow cobblestone streets without the hussle and bustle that we heard happens in...
