visiting Montenegro this summer? Affordable/Warm and Welcoming stay at Hostel Anton May 17, 2014
Hi I'm Ozzy and i just returned from a backpacking trip across central and eastern Europe with one of my friends.

Skip to the bottom line if you just want the main review

Our last stop on the trip was Montenegro, since i had heard so many great things about the beautiful beaches, beautiful weather and the beautiful women. But because of poor planning we ended up in Montenegro a few weeks shy of beach season. Before i review the hostel i want to give some backdrop on the location which i think is important. We heard of hostel Anton through some friends who had stayed there previously so we decided to check them out. Now if you know nothing about Montenegro its basically one of the better parts of former Yugoslavia, it has 3 main "cities" which are more like towns because of the low population of Montenegro. Kotor is known for the breathtaking sights, Budva for its beaches and Tivat for its Yacht club and airport. Hostel anton is a 20 min walk from the airport or a 3 Euro cab ride. everything in Tivat is cheap, and when i say cheap i mean you can buy a whole meal at the grocery store for less than 3 euro. The friendly locals all know each other so there isn't much crime and there are kids everywhere. We took a few cabs and none of them tried to hustle us, they even gave us personal phone numbers in case we couldn't find a cab late at night/morning. And the view of the forest covered mountains alongside the deep blue bay speckled with Yachts and sailboats of all shapes and sizes is needless to say…gorgeous.

OK SO NOW TO THE REIVEW (sorry.)

We stayed there for 3 nights. Like i said it wasn't high tourist season so we had the place to ourselves most of the time which was a nice change of pace. Maya, the owner greeted us and showed us to our rooms as soon as we arrived. The first thing out of her mouth was never about payments or deposits, she let us shower and rest and even gave us a beer from the fridge on the house. (montenegro beer is cheap as hell and delicious so enjoy it)

They have about 10-16 beds i believe, enough for a few large groups. They have private rooms with double beds, or twin beds. they have multiple bathrooms (not group locker room style, they are real bathrooms and showers) which were cleaned every morning by the cleaning ladies. The beds were not as comfortable as i like but there were plenty of comfy blankets given to us that i could adjust it to my comfort level. The walls were thick and not hollow like most european style buildings so Maya's children who live with them downstairs never woke us up at night. The bar/lounge area has huge panoramic windows so you can really enjoy the countryside/bay while you're lying in the Hammock enjoying a beer. Its decorated with Ancient artifacts of Montenegros past collected by Maya's husband which gives it almost a pirate ship feel to it. They have a large wall of safe deposit boxes for your valuables, though you won't fit a backpack in there. The bedroom doors had locks (well key holes at least) so I assume there are keys to lock the doors, but we never used them. At that point i didn't care if someone took my smelly old backpack. IMPORTANT: If you are allergic to dogs be aware. Their super friendly labrador/security guard roams the property, though she is not aloud in the dorms of course. And she never kept us up all night barking. They have a fully functional kitchen and fridge, Maya will even cook delicious home made meals if you ask (for 5 euro, its a hostel not a soup kitchen ;P ) they have a washing machine and plenty of space to hang dry your clothes. Its a 5 min walk to the town center where you can eat delicious seafood, get a really cheap haircut, go to the park, drink at the bar or dance in the clubs. OR you'll never pay more than 10 Euro if you take a cab to the other towns Kotor/Budva since they are so close. The wifi was fast, though it didn't quite reach our room, (had to hold my phone in a specific spot to get reception in the room lol)

OK BOTTOM LINE: Hostel Anton is a great alternative place to stay if you have a small budget. The other areas, Kotor/Budva are really expensive and Tivat is close the airport.

They don't have a place to lock your backpack up that I know of but they have safes for your valuables.

It is eastern europe so everything may not be up to western standards.

Hospitality is one of a kind and i felt safe and welcomed the entire time.

The beds are a little on the firm side. But plenty of comfy blankets/pillows.

Tons of quiet beaches, places to see, food to eat, parties to have without tons of tourists.

And the women are all gorgeous and friendly. *Muah*

Hostel Anton we will be staying with you again. =D
