Croatia is once again a popular tourist destination. The city of Dubrovnik is an obvious draw with its sunny beaches, views of the Adriatic Sea, and historic sites including their famous walls. Tourists say it has been popular throughout history; a beautiful location featuring sand and forest, museums and monasteries. So, where would you stay in Dubrovnik if you were a Canadian traveling on a budget? How would you get there safely? Would it be best to save your money and stay in a hostel close to the ferry and near public transport?
You can certainly find some great deals on Dubrovnik hostels. Plenty of them offer private rooms at cheap prices. This means a couple or a family could stay together feeling safe and enjoying some quiet, rather than listening to strangers snore or keeping one eye open for thievery. Maintaining security is easier when one is able to lock the bedroom door.
The price range of hostels in Dubrovnik is fairly inclusive. Although you could be paying $40 Canadian for a room each night, you might also find a suitable room for less than $15. Rates are based on the time of year and the type of room.
