Location and Contact


• Once you have entered 'Pile Gate' (the main entrance to Dubrovnik's Old Town), it's about a ten minute walk to City Walls Hostel.
• • (1) Head straight down the main street 'Placa' (Stradun) towards the Clock Tower. One block before the Clock Tower, turn right (just after a large cafe called 'Cele' with alfresco seating). If you pass the statue of Orlando in front of St. Blaise's Church, you've gone too far. (@ 2-5 minutes)
• • (2) Walk straight. If you arrive in the morning, you will pass old ladies selling fruits and vegetables in Gundulic Square. During the evening, Gundulic Square is filled with dining tables. Continue past the square and up the rather daunting steps leading to the Jesuit Monastery. (@ 3 minutes)
• • (3) Once you have climbed the 'Spanish Steps', you will notice the Jesuit Monastery to your right. Next to the Church is the baroque building of the former Collegium of Dubrovnik. Now walk left through the gravel courtyard until you see a wooden sign that reads 'Cold Drinks With Most Beautiful View'. (@ 30s)
• • (4) Turn right at the sign towards the cliff-side cafe bar 'Cold Drinks' (Buza). This will take you along a path and gradual steps that follow the outer sea wall. Once you see the next 'Cold Drinks' sign, you are almost at City Walls Hostel (@ 3 minutes).
• • (5) Continue walking straight past two small alleys. Look above and you will sea City Walls Hostel lamp with our logo! City Walls is the tall corner building located on your right-hand side. It is a four-story building . (@ 1 minute)
• • (6) Welcome to City Walls Hostel!!!
• • Looking forward to your stay!
• • Safe Journeys!
