Begovic Boarding House
Ranked #111 of 516 Speciality Lodging in Dubrovnik
Reviewed 27 January 2017

This was one of the most appalling hostels I have ever stayed in. As two young women travelling we did not feel safe in this hostel. The hostel owner became increasingly overbearing during our stay and made us feel very uncomfortable. My friend found bites all over her legs and to her horror found bed bugs in her sheets - she was forced to share the top bunk with me. When informing the owner of this discovery we were met with an aggressive response, and at first accused of lying. Horrific hostel.

Our experience at this place was NOT positive. We booked by email and payed for a room with kitchenette, but when we arrived were told, that a kitchenette was no longer available in the room. Even now the room is still advertised on their website WITH kitchenette. A shared kitchen was offered, which was messy, half of the appliances did not work and there was not even a hot water tap. When we left early on the morning of our departure, the kitchen was locked, so no breakfast... Our room was well presented, comfortable bed, but very small, which can be difficult if you have a lot of luggage as we had, travelling for 3 months. So it was good to have the nice, shared terrace. The bathroom was so tiny, that you had to be an acrobat to have a shower. The shower basin was not sealed and the bathroom was constantly under water. The hot water service was either faulty or insufficient. After a few minutes there was no hot water and you had to wait for 20 minutes. Even in Dubrovnik, 70.- EUR for this room without breakfast, is not acceptable.

My stay at Begovic Boarding House was absolutely delightful. Host Bega was so friendly, and welcoming which made you feel comfortable and at ease. All the guest were super friendly as well, and you get to meet people from all over the world staying at this place.You get a beautiful view of the city from here, and not only that, but there are many restaurants close by; the beach is also very close by! Our rooms were always spotless, and there laundry service is amazing! This is the place you should stay at if you will be staying in Dubrovnik. You will not regret it!

I've stayed at Begovic Boarding house three times now and would return in an instant. Their ability to balance hospitality with professionalism is perfect and what you should be looking for when staying along the Croatian Coast. A taste of the local culture along with the security of knowing you will have a comfortable stay. The rooms are always clean and comfortable, the location is ideal with a great view and close to many cafes, restaurants, family friendly beaches, and the bus stop to the old town. I couldn't recommend it more. It is also a great place to stay if you have a larger group or are traveling solo.

We recently returned from our third stay at Begovic Boarding House, and it really does feel like home to us. Bega and his family are incredibly warm and hospitable. From the minute we made our booking and Bega remembered our family from three years ago to the great interactions and conversations we had with the Begovic family during our stay, we have been struck by how they don't just do hospitality, they are genuinely hospitable.

The location is great, also. We love the cafes, restaurants and family-friendly beach right down the stairs, and transport to the old town is easy. The view from the terrace is beautiful and the rooms are comfortable and clean.

We would stay here again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it to anyone considering Dubrovnik!
