Podgorica is Montenegro's city and there are at least a few Podgorica hostels. This town is often written off as ugly and not worth a visit. But if you have any interest in modern architecture, urbanism, or the arts don't miss this place. Though the city isn't huge, it is big enough to have a dense public transportation network and plenty of sites to see. Most of all you can count on spending your time in restaurants or wandering the streets and parks noting the extreme brutality of the architecture and lush greenery and boulevards. If you like literature check out the once Turkish bath which is now a bookstore/cafe/cultural center. Or if you're into street art, just wander around and you'll find plenty.
You have just a few choices for hostels in Podgorica. There are options outside of the city, but keep in mind these are cumbersome to get to without a car, so stick to anything within the city. There isn't really a defined “old-town” and you can't be too picky as there aren't too many options, so just stay within walking distance of the central train and bus station. Going out, sightseeing, shopping, and everything else is doable in this area.
