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...

I stayed only one night while in Split, but had a ball. I stayed in the double room, spacious enough for a hostel, comfy bed, very clean. Staff were great, very helpful and fun, took a group of is out to party. Awesome location inside the old town.

This place is cozy from the moment you get in..it's a little difficult to find..but once you get the hang of the layout of Split, it's all good. Absolutely great here; the people are friendly..colorful decor..it's like a big family! They take you out for dinner & night outings COMFY PILLOWS! :) Would stay again! Thanks A+A

Old town was easily the best hostel I've stayed in since leaving Australia early last year. Many hostels seem cold and uninviting but not this place. The staff actually take the time to get to know you. That could mean getting people together who are keen to play games, go for dinner our go to the local pub. The owners... More

Old Town Hostel is a great position (once you find it!) The staff are very friendly and easy going. They will help you with anything you want, including great dinner suggestions. The double room, though small was great, with a really nice view of the city. Definitely recommend.

The place is in an excellent location BUT I placed a bottle of vodka in the freezer and the next day I came home to it frozen to which that means that someone had drank it and added water to it. No appreciation for property.

I think Old Town ranks as my favorite hostel, ever. The hostel somehow attracts amazing fellow travelers and the staff really cultivate a friendly, homey atmosphere. The view out of the window into Old Town is surreal and the hostel is cheerfully decorated, spotlessly clean, and comfortable. Great restaurant/attraction/bar recommendations and super fun people to party with. Thanks for everything!

As soon as you walk in the door you can feel the atmosphere is an embellishment of the chilled out vibe for the whole of Croatia. The owner, Dora, couldn't do enough for my friend and I and was immediately personable and made sure we were comfortable - there was no awkwardness you find in some business-like hostels - we...
