Stranger Tides Hostel Reviews

Stranger Tides Hostel has an unmistakable sea/sailor theme. It is fitting for a hostel right by the sea, of course. And it is the perfect choice for everyone who enjoys hanging out by the sea.

The Location

The hostel is quite far away from the Kotor city center, but it is located right at the coast. There is no real beach at these parts of the bay, but there are platform-like, small piers built on the seashore. You can lay on a sun bed and soak in the sun there or chill in the shade with a glass of cold beer. And the cool waters of Kotor Bay are right there in front of you for you to jump in.

Because of its out-of-center location, reaching the hostel can be a bit tricky. You can either take a taxi from the center or wait for the hourly bus if you prefer to use the public transport. The irregularity of the public bus makes it rather inconvenient, but it is still a viable option. And to go back to town, you can try sharing a taxi with other guests or take a long but pleasant walk along the bay.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorms are very spacious with large bunkbeds and privacy curtains. There is an outlet and a personal light next to each bed. And the view from the large windows is pretty amazing. There is a bathroom with toilet and shower in each floor. They are clean and well maintained.

Common Spaces

There is a small garden with tables and chairs where you can hang out. In the kitchen at the back, there are also enough tables to take your meal. And the kitchen in general is very clean, very well maintained, and well equipped. But the best part of the hostel is the sea platform right in front of it -- this is what makes this hostel special. There are tables, chairs, and a couple of sun beds right over the water. And you can just watch the sea and the mountains on the other side of the bay forever.


To sum it up, Stranger Tides Hostel's location is both its best and worst quality. But regardless of the inconveniences of public transport, the view is unbeatable. This place is perfect for a calm getaway by the sea and for mingling with other like-minded guests. You can almost feel like a proper seafarer.
