I wasn't there in high season, but I can imagine how much fun you can get staying there in summer. Neno is such a fun host and the atmosphere of the place is full of youth! Very close to the port and the bus station, the beaches, the old city, bars, supermarkets - pretty much everything a tourist will need... More

We opted for the two-bed dorm. The room and common areas (kitchenette, toilets, bathrooms) were really clean, and the staff were friendly. The hostel is just a short walk to the palace and rail/bus station.

Fantastic location -a few minutes (walk) away from the center / bus and train station. To be fair, I stayed at the end of the season , so I got an 8 bed dorm all to myself, which is probably the cheapest option if you're staying in Split, plus the owner/head receptionist was in an extremely good mood :) The...

The hostel is OK, Clean, good bathroom, good room, friendly staff and very close to the city center. However it's not a backpacker hostel. It almost has no colletive areas and the price is expensive for backpackers.

Extremely nice people that'll help you as much as they can. Rooms were very clean and each bed had a curtain so you can have privacy in every dorm. There's a public place with a balcony where it's easy to get to know someone and the owners spend a lot of time there as well. It's not expensive at all... More

Split backpackers is a clean comfy place to stay. It is close enough to the city centre, yet far enough way to be nice and quiet at night making it easy to get a good night's sleep. There are only 2 showers but it is quite a small hostel so I never found it a problem. The staff were really... More
