Étrange mais marrant
L'auberge se trouve dans les hauteurs de Dubrovnik, assez fatigant de s'y rendre du centre ville. Privilégiez le bus numéro 3 qui vous dépose juste au dessus de la villa. Pour ce qui est de la villa, la propreté n'est clairement pas le maître mot de cette auberge mais l'accueil et la vue vous font oublier ce manque! Le propriétaire ne parle pas anglais mais est assez atypique dans son genre! A essayer!

Quite bad
I expected it to be closer to the Old town, but it's not. There was no heating, it was freezing the whole night. The host told us (the next morning) that they would have to charge us 6E extra for the remote of the AC unit, which isn't mentioned on any booking website, as the daughter of the hosts kept on saying when we left the location in disappointment. The view from the room was nice. And the hosts barely spoke any English.

Best part of my trip!
The people who run this little place are absolutely wonderful. When my friend and I stayed in one of the top rooms (amazing view!) for most of a week, we thoroughly enjoyed chatting with the owners -- so much so that when our day trip to Bosnia was canceled, the owner took us there himself! We toured around and ate dinner with his friends at their home -- a truly awesome experience -- and I shed a few tears when we left their hostel. Warm, kind people who will have a conversation about local history can be hard to find. Bring a phrase book and skip the full breakfast but have some brandy in the morning if he offers.

Brilliant
The owner and his wife are so very helpful and their daughter speaks fluent English. Bit of a stroll to Stari Grad but it'll keep you fit!

Villa Banana means having fun!
I have been to Villa Banana with my school class and staying there was great!! It wasn't very luxury and the bathrooms were a bit ugly but the sleeping rooms were ok and the balconies were great because we could sit there all together! I think the beds are good! The breakfast wasn't that great because some spreads was tainted but it even wasn't very expensive. I think Villa Banana is great because you can have fun there!!

Terrible
As they speak no English at all, it is easy to find all the problems we got. The transfer from the airport was not to the house, but to a road five minutes' walking downhill with our luggage. The bathrooms were anything but clean, and the rooms are fully packed with old beds, although not as dirty as the bathrooms. Food is a quite personal matter, but we were eleven people and we all disliked it. It is not twenty minutes from the city center, but a downhill trip. Coming back takes more time, since it's a never ending upstairs climbing. Too bad we found later much better places with a similar price in town. I seriously recommend to look for another much better place for 3 euros more.

Couldn't have asked for more
we where lucky enough to stay in the top apartment with an ace balcony looking over the old town on the left and the harbour on the right where we could see the sun set over it! the couple and their daughter who run the hostel where wonderful, they could not have done more for us! pick ups and drop offs, food until we could eat no more, beer always available, rooms clean and beds comfy, i can not big this hostel up enough and gave out the details to other travelers as i passed through Croatia. whether a gang of mates or a loved up couple i recommend staying here!
