Dubrovnik has become widely famous, especially in recent years, for being a stunning gem on the Adriatic. The city's Stari Grad (old town), built out around a harbor, is indeed a must see if you're in the region. Though the city center is more overfilled at midday during peak season than infamously touristy Venice, you can take up the city in peace if you bother getting up early or come out of season. Though Stari Grad is the center attraction, there are a few side-shows going on in and around town. Beach-going guests of Dubrovnik hostels will be able to enjoy the clear waters -- expect to pay for sandy beaches; for rocky ones head south along the coast and look for public beaches. There's a great view of the old town from here.
Dubrovnik hostels are limited. In summer you ought to book well in advance if you want to have a choice. Hostels, as along much of the Adriatic in ex-Yugoslavia, are in the upper floors of tall family houses. This means you'll have good air even without air conditioning and may well score a view of the sea and/or of town. Most have small kitchens for the couple rooms on each floor. Most of the hostels in Dubrovnik are located up the bluff behind the old town. Rule has it, the longer the walk uphill, the cheaper but the better view.
Check up with Dubrovnik hostel to see if they have a free pick-up service from the bus station. Although the station isn't very far south of town, you'll likely have to tackle a maze of steep dead-end streets and winding staircases to find your way up to your hostel, so it might actually be useful to not have to try and find your hostel on your own.

Near bus stop, beach, and supermarket, everything is convenient." … "Stayed here since the YH was full and it was the only other place I could find offering dorm accommodations.

Begovic Boarding House
"Begovic Boarding House is a very agreeable place to stay. Although it has a dormitory, the owners have their house upstairs while you're downstairs (it's uphill, so no worries, you're not in a cave).

"Villa Banana is an adequate hostel with decent kitchen facilities and comfortable enough rooms for a night or two. One issue is that the staff/owners only speak Croatian and this makes it difficult to ask for advice for things to do in Dubrovnik. Unlike many other hostels, it doesn't have the ability to facilitate excursions or even provide information on excursions, so if you want to look into these you will have to go elsewhere. The...

Dubrovnik Travel Tips & Suggestions
lapad is the best part of Dubrovnik.
Dubrovnik is great.
Stunning -- that's what best describes Dubrovnik. I have not stopped thinking about Dubrovnik since I left last summer and am eagerly figuring out how to return. I can't recommend it highly enough. Go see what a gem this city really is!
You should not miss Mljet Island! It's just beautiful!
— a MLJET Island Fun
I planned to stay three days, and ended up extending for a week. It's fairly expensive, but well worth it. Absolutely gorgeous, and really good public transportation (buses), so you can stay further away from the walled city and saved some money, but not lose a lot of time getting to and from your accommodations. The best time to spend in the city/at cafes is in the evening, as the cruise ship crowds have gone back to their boats. I had a problem with mosquito bites in the evenings, though, so you may want to take bug spray.
My family is Croatian and I came to Dubrovnik to visit and absolutely fell in love with the city. Currently I am looking for a place to rent out and a job because I do not want to return to the states. Be careful, this is the sort of place you will travel to and not want to leave.
Dubrovnik is sizzling and very pretty. I cannot find words to express my pleasure visiting that city ten days ago.
Dubrovnik is lovely but overpriced! Stay in Lapad area which is near Lapad beach and full of shops, bars, and not too pricey.
Dubrovnik is very pretty but there's no real backpacker scene. It's overrun with couples, families, European tour groups of senior citizens, the jet-set crowd, and the see-and-be-seen crowd. Prices are ridiculously expensive! The Old Town is gorgeous but I wouldn't stay here for any length of time.
I first saw and walked through Dubrovnik at the age of seventeen. It remains my favorite little city in the entire world. Beautiful scenery, the Adriatic, the little shops and eateries. We took a boat to Cavtat and a few other islands. The most beautiful location in the world. Take in the old world feel.
If you want to avoid the crowds, Dubrovnik is best visited between April-May or September-October. In the high season, the old town is packed. If you have been traveling around Croatia and are sick of pizza, I'd recommend Fresh. It's a good place to meet other travellers and they serve wraps and smoothies.
Dubrovnik really is paradise. It doesn't have long sandy beaches with palm trees and coconuts but it does have the most amazing old city I have ever come across. The old city walls protect the ancient town, and it's full of marvelous little restaurants, shops and entertainment. You'll be walking around with a sore neck from taking in the grand and spectacular ancient buildings. I would recomend a day trip to one of the islands just offshore. We went to one and found a hidden lake where we just sat in the sun and swam in the warm clear lake. A perfect location for a couple of relaxing days in the sun.
