The Hostelz.com Review - Genuine, independent review you can trust.
Montenegro Hostel Podgorica is a convenient hostel based in a detached house with big rooms and a huge garden. People usually spend only one night at most in Podgorica, either when they arrive to Montenegro or when they are leaving. The train journey from Podgorica to Belgrade is famous for its amazing views. And there are quite a few travelers who overnight in Podgorica and catch the day train to Serbia in the morning. For this purpose, the hostel provides a decent option.
Montenegro Hostel Podgorica is located close to the center of the city. As Podgorica is not a very big city, it is fifteen to twenty minutes' walk to the bus station and the train station, which are across from each other. The hostel itself is in an alley in a quiet residential area. The hostel is also near the Moraca River that passes through the city. With its very clear waters, it becomes quite attractive in summer to go and have a quick dip or enjoy a drink by the riverbank. The river flows in a valley though, so you need to ask the staff where is closest place to get down to the water level.
Rooms and Bathrooms
The dorms are on the second floor of the house, and there is a bathroom on each floor. The bunk beds are a bit worn out, but it is in general a comfortable hostel. All the beds have privacy curtains and the guests are provided with a key for a personal locker in their room and a clean towel.
Common spaces are quite roomy. The first one is the big living room area, which is also where the reception desk is. There is large-screen TV and a dining table in the living room, and two couches. Adjoining the living room is a very well-equipped kitchen. The guests are free to cook their meals in the kitchen. The best part of the common areas, though, is certainly the big garden, especially if you are there during the warmer months.
Podgorica is not a city high on any traveler's radar, and the hostel choices reflect this fact. Nevertheless, Montenegro Hostel Podgorica is a good option for anyone passing through the city and who would want to give it a chance.

• This is a direction to the Montenegro Hostel Podgorica. • Hostel is 250 meters far from bus/railway station. When you exit bus or train station go to Mitar Bakić boulevard (20 meters from the entrance to the bus station building), then turn right and go 20 meters straight ahead to the spot where boulevard crosses the Boulevard of October Revolution. On that crossroad go straight ahead (north) 10 meters and you will see big log cabin Nino Janković (grill Nino). • When you reach grill Nino turn left to the street that leads straight to the parking between residence buildings.You will enter a small curvy street. This is Djecevica [Dзet∫evit∫a] Street. Follow it, past by the house with yard and a gate in front of it. There should be a wire fence on your right.Walk a little bit more straight ahead, following the fence, and then on your left should be a small street, which looks like an entrance to the yard. Walk on that street until you reach red house. The house number is Djecevica 25. The hostel is on the 2nd floor, left door of that house. • Airport is located 10 km from Podgorica.
