Cleanish. Long walk up steps from old town. Small rooms, smelly upstairs toilet. Guy at reception literally didn't care, folding washing when we arrived, no desk. When we asked for directions he asked us to wait until he finished folding... Totally disinterested staff. Won't go back!

My friend and I were traveling to Split at an off-peak season this year and booked LerO's on a whim hoping for the best. What we were given was a more than extraordinary welcome on our first night. We were introduced to a group of local Croats running the hostel who made sure our stay was enjoyable throughout. The hostel... More

Stayed in LerO for 3 nights, facilities are brilliant, had full use of hostel kitchen, big TV, washing machine... State in 6 bed dorm, very clean, comfy beds. Hostel is at top of hill just outside of split centre, 1 min walk from awesome viewpoint over whole city and harbour

Having booked an apartment via the hostel we were expecting an enjoyable stay, we had no Wifi as advertised, no washing or cooking facilities as advertised, the apartment was more of a building site with loose cables and inflatable beds. Its a shame the shower was cold too. The hostel itself was about a 5 minute walk away and seemed... More

LerO hostel is brilliant! It is only a 5 min walk from the centre of Split and it's clean, cosy and has a lovely terrace. But the best thing about it is by far the hostel owner (Lero), he is hilarious and extremely helpful! If I go back to Split, I will definitely stay there again and it's excellent value... More

Although the hostel itself was nice and clean, getting there was a bit long winded. No detailed directions to it are given, as it says for you to go to the National Theatre and give them a call to come and pick you up. We couldn't get through on either of the numbers provided and so were only left with... More

Location: This hostel was not central in Split. There are loads of hostels right near to the bus station and central city, but we were disappointed that ours was a long, uphill walk away. It wasn't really even near enough for us to just pop back to the hostel to get ready after a day at the beach. The walk... More

Hostel Lero is operated by a group of entrepreneurial young men, headed by Lero. I managed to find the place at Vijugasta 16 (they are in an historic area and can't use much signage, you just count along the house numbers and walk into the front yard of what seems like 16, it worked for me - I recommend printing...

We stayed in the apartment usually used as Lero's reception (privately renting the whole place). It was a lovely apartment, spacious, had everything we needed and very homely. The location was great, a quiet residential area but a short walk (5-10 mins) and you were in the old town and centre. The host, Lero, was fab. Very friendly, helpful and... More

Apparently there are few different locations of Hostel Lero, the one we stayed at just had three private rooms, a single, a double and a twin. It's really just a house, there's no reception or anything, and the host, Lero, who's very friendly and a cool guy, only seems to pop in a couple of times a day. The common... More
