Hostel Anton is above all, a place to have fun, meet interesting people, rest and relax. It is also an ideal starting point for exploration of Montenegro and its neighboring countries. Our main goal is to attract young (at heart), creative, open-minded people whose stay at the Hostel would make a difference in their and our lives. Somehow, the unique atmosphere of the Adriatic coast, and our position on it does attract musicians, painters, writers, traveling theatre groups, jewelry makers and all kinds of unique people. This atmosphere is partly provided by the geographic position of our house, which has a huge, breathtaking sea view and a green garden. Our oriental-style gazebo, the full bar and banana, orange and fig-trees probably help in the creation of this small, hidden paradise (at least we think so). Also, we prefer to make things on our own and we collect antique stuff. The Hostel was also built from the bricks of the hundred-year-old house that belonged to my grandfather Anton (yes, therefore the name). If you appreciate unique, creative atmosphere and people, you will enjoy our Hostel, for sure. You will have an opportunity to hear a variety of bands and solo musicians play at the Hostel, see people painting or making jewelry, this is a living place! You can always get plenty of rest, of course, and silence too, when needed.
The staff is artistic, helpful, friendly, open-minded, and efficient. Artists and musicians get 10% off (better learn to play guitar or something ;-). We are a proud member of Balkans Best Hostels Association, which gives you 5 % off your stay at any of the Hostels from the Association.

GEOGRAPHICAL POSITION & SIGHTSEEING
Hostel Anton is placed in Montenegro - Tivat, a town situated in the middle of Boka Kotorska bay, (Boka Bay/ Bocca di Cattaro) the largest and the only fjord in the Mediterranean Sea. Tivat has a convenient position (at the heart of the bay), which is quite important because it allows easy and quick transfer to all interesting locations and important cities (Kotor, Budva, Podgorica, Herceg Novi, Dubrovnik, etc.)
Hostel Anton is situated just 7 km from Kotor (a part of UNESCO world heritage), 20 km from Budva, and 18 km from Herceg Novi. Hostel Anton is just 3 km from the airport which is located in Tivat and 2 km from the bus station. The Railway station is located in Sutomore and that is 60 km from Tivat. The capital city of Montenegro, Podgorica is 88 km away. 60 km away is gorgeous Dubrovnik (Croatia), 25 km away is Croatian border, 30 km away is the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina, 100 km - the border with Albania and 180 km - the border with Serbia.
Our Hostel is situated 500 meters from the sea. Public transportation is reliable and cheap, but we can always provide you with a rent a car, rent a bike, or a taxi. Tivat Bay has great beaches and beach bars some of which are in a walking distance from our Hostel.

That is all ) if u need a cheap place for living in tivat , specially if u travel with company of friends , it good place ! Mikle !)
I stayed two nights at the hostal. The owners are very friendly and trying that the guests feel at home. If there are too many guests the bathrooms seems to little. I m sure that the accomodation is a good place to be.
Hostel Anton is a very nice place. It's run by nice people, who gave us a lot of tips about what to see in the surroundings and the time table for everything. It's clean and, even if at 10 minute walk (up and down of a hill), it's near the city centre. The night we slept there there was a party, so the place has not been that quiet (they usually require silence after 23:00, unless there's an event on schedule) but sleeping was not a problem even if our room was near the common room. Breakfast was great. Coffee was good and the bread soft and fresh. The marmelade tasted really good. Overall a good experience. It's a place with a lot of people from everywhere, so if you're social it's a great place to be. Will definitely book there next time we're in that area.
Very friendly staff, waited for us till late night to arrive and show us around ;-)
Well appreciated !
Good people and good space to relax with a lounge area . It is easy to arrive from tivat. It need some maintenance in toilets.
Very nice owners. Our stay was short but sweet.
A fair walk from the bus stop and also up hill, So if you can catch a taxi.
Rooms are clean and has a relaxing commune area with great views of the water.
Room was not what I expected and explained a staff member gave our room to other guests, It was 04:00 and we had just walked nearly 3kms after a 10 hour bus trip, so we would have been happy with a cot :)
Lovely and helpful hosts, Maja was very good with communication, it was a little hard on my end as I did not have internet on my phone unless there was free wifi around. Very laid back and chilled out atmosphere.
Thank you for the accommodation and would definitely recommend your place to any backpacker.
Hostel Anton was such a brilliant place to stay! There was such a chilled out feel to the place, which made it very easy to relax in. The area downstairs was so good, with one euro beers, a projector and nice seating to sit around and chat to people in. The staff (brian, jasmine, dan, geraldine and guillaume) were also extremely friendly and helpful, a special thank you going out to jasmine for fixing my friends bag!
I would definitely recommend staying at this hostel. We had an amazing time and would love to come back again.
This was a nice hostel. Staff was very helpful.
We so wished that we could stay more than one night! Ivan and Maja accepted us as family. The back terrace is airy and very pleasant, set up for spontaneous music making. We stayed in a double that was roomy, with a comfortable bed and window that opens wide to a wonderful view. The bathroom was modern, with a good shower. Such a wonderful place for travelers who like to meet people! I hope Hostel Anton enjoys many years of success!
