I stayed in this beautiful hostel for two days with my friends and I am fascinated. The staff is simpatic and helpful, they are ready to tell you everything about city and they are very patient too. Dorms and toilets are always clean and tidy. I would definitely like to come again because it was amazing.

I booked beds to stay here with my friends and as soon as we got there we faced inpolite welcoming. Due to our earlier flight we showed up prior to check-in timeframe and the girl working there yelled at us to come back later. We were offered with oportunity of leaving our luggage till check-in, but we didn't expect we...

Stayed in an 8 bed mixed dorm for one night as we were doing sail Croatia in the morning. Couldn't get much closer to the port so if you are doing a sail, stay here. Staff are great, showers and toilets are great although few. Good wifi and air con.

2 minute walk away from the port which was so useful for Sail Croatia and taking a bus anywhere in Croatia. The bathrooms were clean and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The balcony was really useful as well to dry clothes. Wifi was excellent as well.

This was a simple, good hostel. We were in a dorm with about 6 other people in bunkbeds. There was a nice communal area - kettle toaster fridge etc. Also, nice restaurants close by and not too expensive! Slightly out of the centre of split but close to the train station. Perfect for interlining and backpacking...as name of hostel suggests!...

Was in a handy location as it had everything from the riva, supermarkets, beaches, bars and stations within short walking distance. Staff were all lovely & gave loads of info everything from mapping out where things are in split to telling us what clubs to visit on a Monday night! Small & quaint but got everything you need. Good value

Comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, friendly staff and decent wifi when the place isn't full. This place delivered all we could really ask of a hostel. Obviously a more equipped kitchen would have been great, but beggars can't be choosers.

We only stayed one night there. We had a private room with a bathroom. But we paid too much for the room - for a very small room! Also the kitchen (the only place you can meet the others) is tiny. The hostel is clean and the staff is friendly. The location is perfect, only a few minutes until you're...

As you will see, all buildings around split are very old with many laws forbidding reconstruction or heavy remodels. So right off the bat, this building is very dated. Saying, that it was still very nice inside and the customer service was similar to a 5-start hotel elsewhere Pros - Kristina! She is amazing. She will always get you an...
