Dubrovnik is literally surging with backpackers, although the only officially registered hostel within the Old-Town walls for the past few seasons has been Fresh Sheets, run by an engaging Croatian-Canadian couple. Newly renovated for the 2013 season, the hostel is squeezed into a tall thin house at the top of several flights of steps. It has three floors of (mostly bunk-bed) dorms, with a shower/WC on each floor. Private doubles can also be arranged in one of the buildings nearby. The reception-cum-common room makes socialising easy, and you can forage for breakfast ingredients (included in the price) in the communal kitchenette. Watch out for the launch of Fresh Kathedral [sic] later this year, an atmospheric former nunnery behind Dubrovnik Cathedral holding a selection of double rooms (from €88) and a fancy apartment (€150), all sharing communal kitchen and dining area.
