One of the best hostels I've been to. The most important thing for me is that the hostel is super clean and with the big lockers to put your things away in. Really nice staff with the good suggestions for the local restaurants. I especially liked the tours they’re organizing, good value for money (barbecue night and boat excursion)- great fun for solo travelers as I am.

Thanks to Milan and Ognjen, I had a wonderful stay and felt so welcomed. The staff is truly super nice. Beds were comfortable and the surroundings lovely. The common room is always full of people, it’s easy to socialise. When in Kotor, I’ll definitely come back here.

The Old Town Hostel is a perfect location. Great atmosphere, facilities and so much to do nearby! Milan was the most attentive host; he had tips and advice for everything, while being extremely welcoming, friendly and no ask was too much!

This is a great hostel. The manager Milan kept a very welcoming and chill vibe there. The other people working there were very nice too. It’s in a great location with everything you need nearby. The staff gives good recommendations on what to do in town. They have good tours of Montenegro also.

As I wanted to stay in a hostel but still have privacy, I booked a private room and it’s a beautiful room underneath the roof. Milan is a great host - he’s always available with information, fixes any issues, joining the guests for a chat. It’s super-well located, also for travelers who come by bus. Highly recommend this place!

Such a beautiful scenic place, this hostel was so lovely, clean and in the most perfect location. The host was fantastic, helpful, friendly and welcoming. Will definitely be going back again ASAP! Had so much fun it’s right in the middle of all the bars, restaurants, shops and a small walk away from the port which is just surreal. The best time ever, Thank you 🙏🏾

I really enjoyed staying at this hostel. It as clean and the managers were nice. I am a digital nomad so I worked online and stayed at the dorm. The location is great since you are right down in the old town.
