ABOUT FRESH SHEETS

Fresh* Sheets Hostel is located inside the heart of Dubrovnik's historical Old Town. Recommended by Lonely Planet, Rough Guide, In Your Pocket, and Rick Steve's, you'll find yourself just seconds away from a famous cliff-side bar and a short hop to a secret swimming hole where you can enjoy sunbathing and cliff-jumping in the clear blue Adriatic Sea. All restaurants, shops, and bars are easily accessible. And you will enjoy free internet and wi-fi access, a continental breakfast, book exchange, and common area.

Run by travelers for travelers, Fresh* Sheets offers free breakfast, internet and wi-fi access, basic kitchen facilities, a common area, en-suite bathrooms, book exchange, travel information, and secure lockers.

To help you prepare for your trip, we've put together some information about Dubrovnik. For more details about travel, things to do, places to eat, and nightlife, feel free to visit our locally updated mini-guides on-line.

THINGS TO DO IN DUBROVNIK:.

If you can fit it into your schedule, give yourself at least a couple days to explore and enjoy one of the Med's most magnificent walled cities. That way you'll get to see how the town really lives and breathes.

The best time to visit is in the spring or early fall when the weather is generally sunny and there are less tourists about. But during peak season (June - September), the town gets more lively and you''ll have a great time.

Our staff at Fresh* Sheets will be happy to give you some insider tips and help answer any of your questions when you arrive, but here are a few key activities, we'd recommend:

WALK THE WALLS

This is a must. You just have to time it right. Plan on doing the walk early in the morning or early evening so that you avoid the cruise ship traffic. Otherwise, you may find yourself sweating and doing something that feels more like waiting in a line at Disneyland.

HIT THE WATER

A few meters from Fresh* Sheets, there are two great cliffside bars where local youth also prove their mettle. You can go cliff-jumping into the clear blue Adriatic and then chill out on the rocks afterwards. If you have the time, you can also hop a small ferry from the Old Town Port to Lokrum island where the cliffs are a steeper and provide good photo opps to make your friends envious.

We arrange kayaking trips for all our guests. It's a great way to start the day and you'll get the chance to paddle around the Old Town and the nearby island of Lokrum where you'll find a secret cove and some of the clearest water you'll ever see. If you want to go deeper, local dive shops offer excursions for both inexperienced, amateur, and professional divers.

PARTY!!!

Although the Fresh* bar we used to run in another location in the Old Town is closed, you can still get Fresh* in Dubrovnik. During the season, you can refresh* every Monday + Tuesday + Friday night at our bucket parties at Cafe Galerie (Kuniceva 5 / 6th street on your left from the main Pile Gate).

Drink Specials include:
*Happy Hour Beer (8-9pm) - 2 for 1 bottles of domestic.
*Discount Sex (9-11pm) - 3 litre sex on the beach cocktail towers
*Cocktail Buckets (all night long) - Fresh*+ Thai + Sex buckets

WAR PHOTO LIMITED

There are few physical reminders of the the siege that occurred in the early 90s. Although it doesn't seem like something to do on holiday, you'll gain a much greater appreciation of the city and its occupants when you get the chance to see, even briefly, how much it has gone through and changed. War Photo Limited is a well-run gallery and a valuable resource. There is a space dedicated to images of what occurred in the region but the rotating exhibitions of world-renowned photojournalists cover many different conflicts. During the hot summer days, it also offers a welcome respite from the heat and a good place to reflect. Definitely worth a visit.

GET IN SHAPE

For those looking to get in shape, you'll notice that Dubrovnik has a lot of stairs. However, if you really are into fitness, we've spent the winter sacrificing a few beer calories to find the best jogging routes. If running isn't your thing, we organize hikes up the hill overlooking the Old Town. Aside from the stunning views and cold beer at top, you'll get the extra bonus of meeting Maxie the hostel mascot - a handsome english setter who we rescued without realizing what an exercise freak he is. We are also planning on setting up a yoga center with drop in classes.

.:COSTS IN DUBROVNIK:.

People are usually surprised by the costs in Dubrovnik. You may find it to be more pricey than you planned on. Accommodation costs inside the Old Town can be quite expensive and there are plenty of ways to spend your money. However, like most places, with a little insider knowledge, you can stick to your budget if you avoid the tourist menus and one-off restaurants, hit up drink specials, and prepare your own picnic lunches.

When you arrive, we'll give you a list of the places where we eat - good food, fair prices. We also have a basic kitchen at the hostel so you'll be able to visit the nearby supermarket and open-air fruit and veg market and prepare your own meals. Beer in bars average about 25 KUNA (@ 3.5 EUR) so you may want to take advantage of our Happy Hour before heading out for the night. Otherwise, you can purchase 2 litre bottles in the store.

Hope you get a chance to visit us! Looking forward to your stay!

DIRECTIONS TO THE MONK'S BUNK

The Monk's Bunk is facing the Freedom Square (Vabaduse Valjak), the biggest square in the Old Town. Whether you come by bus, ferry, train or plane: public transport will stop here and then it will be only a 2 minute walk to the hostel.

Once you arrive at the Vabaduse Valjak you simply walk to the big intersection. Walk into the street next to the Soogiplats kiosk/fast food vendor: this is Tatari street. Note that there are 2 houses that are called 'Tatari 1': we are the 2nd one, after the Sex Shop and the parking lot. The reception is on the top floor.

HOW TO REACH VABADUSE VALJAK

From the Central Bus station:
You need to take a tram No. 4 (direction Tondi) until the tram stop 'Vabaduse valjak', or take a bus No. 17, 17a or 23 to the bus stop 'Vabaduse valjak'. From here you walk Soogiplats kiosk/fast food place on the corner of the big intersection.

From the Harbour and Train station:
You need to take a tram No. 1 or 2 (direction Tondi or Kadriorg) to tram stop 'Hobujaama', and take a tram No. 3 or 4 from there (direction Tondi) and ride to the 'Vabaduse valjak' tram stop'. From here you walk a little bit back to the Soogiplats kiosk/fast food place on the corner of the big intersection.

From the Airport:
Bus 90K departs from right outside the arrival hall. Ride to the ' Vabaduse Valjak' stop. From here you walk a little bit back to the Soogiplats kiosk/fast food place on the corner of the big intersection.
Alternatively, you can take bus No. 2 and get off at the bus stop 'A.Laikmaa' in the city center. From there take a short walk to the tram stop 'Hobujaama' and take a tram No. 3 or 4 (direction Tondi) to the 'Vabaduse valjak' tram stop.


Coming by taxi:

Taxis that you find on the street tend to overcharge. Try to negotiate a price with them and try not to pay more than 10 euros. If you can, it's much more reliable and cheaper to order a taxi on +372 638 0000 to pick you up (pay attention to the car number that they tell you) and expect to pay 5-10 Euro, depending on traffic and whether you are coming from the harbor, bus station or airport.


Coming by car:

There is a Europark car park right in our backyard, which you enter from Estonia Pst. Parking there costs �8 per day. However, if you drive on Estonia Pst. one house further, there is another Europark which costs only 4,80 per day.
