The location couldn't be better (for visit, supermarket, restaurant, night life, ferry boat, bus station, etc) as the Hostel is truly located in the dioclatian palace, the main city center. Being a guest of the Hostel you have discount for different activities, we choose sea kayaking and it was worth it. Receptionist were nice and helpful but contact by e-mail... More

in short - might try and find elsewhere to stay next time, but had a good experience. If you stay, ask for a discount if you have any problems, they'll give u 10% back! The website and reviews give you the impression that the hostel is an expensive hell hole. The pictures online are actually incorrect. We didn't see anything... More

The hostel is located within the palace, which is pretty cool. However, the staff was completely disinterested and not all that helpful. The place was filled with loud partiers so definitely not a place to stay if you actually want to get to sleep. Also, the communal sinks (at least two of them and the floor) in the bathroom were...

Well the only good thing I can say about this place is the location! There is no common room to meet people, showers are filthy and broken with hot water running out., and there is no locks on the rooms , only on the lockers.they don't even offer you hostel identification to prove your staying there. I was staying in... More

Initially the hostel looks great, perfect location and room A is gorgeous. Unfortunately the rooms boast dirty corners, limited power points, cold showers,and zero security. Staff don't monitor people coming in and there are zero lockable doors between your bed and the street. One room had all their electronics stolen from their lockers.. which were still locked after the theft...... More

Where do I start? When we arrived and went to our dorm it was filthy - food left out, rubbish on the floor, used tissues down the side of the bed. The staff told us the room was tidied at 2pm (we arrived at 4pm) so the mess was created between those two hours which we found hard to believe.... More

This hostel was good, the shared bathrooms were fairly full on and the showers didn't often have hot water. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfy but they were very hot at night and even thought we were given a fan it didn't do much. It was also a bit awkward walking through the restaurant downstairs as it... More

Very friendly staff, always there for you and really want to try and help. The studio was bigger than we expected and surprisingly clean, however one bed was broken (very uncomfortable to sleep in) and there were no windows at all. Good shower, nice kitchenette with fridge. Major downside is that a lot of small things were broken, e.g. electrical... More

It's a nice hostel. Not very easy to find, because instructions given by the hostel were not clear. We tried to ask people, but nobody knew where it was! despite that, it's very good located - inside the palace. Staff is great. Rooms are very modern and comfortable - with air-conditioner and big lockers. Bathrooms are average, because it is... More

good points: Quite cheap, perfect location (close to the port, train, bus, and the old town). Also the bed are good... bad points: they asked me a bit more than booked, and I had horrible people in my room almost having sex at 4am waking up everyone.
