Bar is a big town in coastal Montenegro with several hostels. The city is by no means the most beautiful part of the country, but it is a transportation hub for getting around the coastal areas and to the interior of Montenegro and beyond, as well as to Italy across the Adriatic by ferry. The train from Belgrade ends here as do frequent additional trains from Podgorica.

That's not to say that the town is ugly, in fact there's a long beach and rolling hills like much of the rest of the country's Adriatic coast. The city-center near the beach is built most in the communist Yugoslovian style. The train and bus stations are a bit of a hike, but still walkable. The town is very compact, and the longest you have to walk to get anywhere is 25 minutes from the train station to the complete opposite side of town. Stari Bar, the old town, on the other hand, is a historic ruin well outside of the city. You can take the bus there (the stop to depart from is kitty-corner from the Mercator supermarket) or share a cab with others waiting at that bus stop or at the central bus station.

Hostels in Bar are limited and they come and go. In summer it can be hard to find a bed. It's best to make a reservation in advance. If all of the Bar hostels are full, check nearby towns as the country is small and travel times are short.
