I loved this hostel. Great vibe, awesome location and very social. It's in the heart of the Old Town so feels very special. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Only thing I'd recommend is that they weren't too helpful with what to do around Split but the tourist office is just around the corner. Thanks for a great stay

We had a really nice time staying at this warm and cosy hostel. The location is more than perfect inside the Diocletians’s palace walls and the staff (we met Dora and Walter, a perfect duo!) are very friendly and attentive. This contributed positively to our stay in Split and we return with great memories! We highly recommend this place, you... More

I stayed here for a few nights and it was great! People were awesome and super helpful. The biggest thing that bugged me was having only two single bathrooms for everyone. The water was rarely warm when showering and you have to be strategic about when you shower and go to the bathroom because they are often times both busy.... More

Nice communal areas and good atmosphere. Some reviews complain of cramped rooms; i do not agree, i found the room i was in was both spacious and well kept. had a great night here, and made some good friends. The owner is really funny, and well worth talking too. See if you can guess which of the staff it is!... More

The hostel has a fantastic location in the old town but the rooms are pretty small and the common room area doesn't have enough seats. Reasonable price for Croatia, about £15 a night. The rooms have strong air conditioning which is pretty quite.

This hostel is a great spot to meet people. It doesn't matter if your traveling by yourself or in a group. You would find cool people ranging in the age between 20 to early 30's. People who work at this hostel are nice and fast. They are available almost 24hrs and they get along easily with anyone. The place is... More

After checking into my finally hostel of a 5 week trip around Europe I can say without a doubt that my time at old town was my favorite. The facilities are what you expect for the price- clean, hygienic, comfortable but basic. However it isn't the rooms or facilities that make this hostel stand out. It is the vibe of... More

This hostel has everything I could ever want. Arrived in the evening off the 6 hour train from Zagreb and it was a short walk to the Old Town of Split where the hostel is located. On first appearances Split can look a bit rough and as soon as you step off the train you're hassled by people with signs... More

The views from the rooms are nice and the location is fantastic! The atmosphere is pleasant and the hostel is full of vibrant colors. Though the kitchen is small, I was surprised by how big the apartment actually is when you consider the age of the building and how small many apartments and homes are in Zagreb! One thing you...
