The place is really hard to find and many things are not working as they should. However, the price is very reasonable for this well-located hostel ! The staff is very kind and the rooms were perfect. We were the only two in the entire hostel so it was really calm.

Pros: good location, nice enough rooms Cons: 1 shower each for male/female when there are at least 30 beds, 'kitchen facilities' are a fridge and a microwave, the laundry facilities were broken on arrival and the closest launderette was £7 a load, no lockers, no 24x7 check in, although rooms were nice enough it was small and the common room...

I was very tired so just wanted to sleep to rest up before Croatia sailing and this was the perfect spot! Bed was comfy even though to get to the room I had to go through another room.. Wifi worked well. Small quiet place maybe not so good for solo traveller unless you need time out!

Nearly an hour lost to check in as the receptionist does not know how to use a computer. Poorly maintained place (had to shower in the dark, noisy and malfunctioning air conditionner, etc.). More expensive than sleeping at the inhabitant as soon as you do not travel alone. Walk by without stopping.

The 6 person room is a highway to the 8 person room. If you get lucky, you may get a bunch of bachelor party guys coming through your room in the middle of the night, drunk and noisy, waiting to wake you up. On top of that, there is only 1 guys shower and 1 girls shower for the entire... More

We waited almost an hour to check in at reception and there was a notice from another guest about security problems, homeless people sleeping in the communal area and a horrible smell throughout the place. We decided to find alternate accommodation, and then received a nasty email about this. Do yourself a favour find a different place to stay.

We stayed here for 2 nights in the separate apartment from the hostel (about 100m away) in a huge double room. The apartment had 2 other rooms. It was quite a dark apartment but it was ok. There was free wi-fi and air conditioning and a shared kitchen and bathroom. Location was brilliant, right on the edge of the palace... More

I don't know about the dorms, but the double room we had was great. It was just outside the old palace walls, so the location was excellent. The room was huge and we had free wi-fi as well. The apartment had 3 or 4 rooms and we all shared a kitchen and bathroom (which was large, but only one person... More

Trying to find the entrance to this hostel is a little disconcerting in the dark as the entrance to the building, down a semi-dark, short alleyway is not well signed and the staircase to climb to the third-floor reception is pitch black until someone else hears you clomping upward and turns the timer light on for you. On the plus... More

Great hostel! We had a great stay there, location is just perfect, right in the center of Split and just 10 min walking distance from the beach. Staff was really friendly and showed us everything we needed to know. It is very clean hostel. All rooms are air-conditioned and they also have free internet. Next time we visit Split we... More
