Backpackers should go there and get in touch with the staff! They are very friendly and helpfull. Ryan toured us around and showed us the best places to visit in Split! We had a great time there. The rooms are clean, but so is the kitchen! There is a living room inside where you can meet other guests. Awesome place!

I stayed at Backpackers Fairytale for three nights with a pair of friends during our Eurotrip and was extremely satisfied with the accommodation that the staff provided. I believe it was an 18 bedroom hostel that allowed for a relaxed home-ground set in the beautiful city of Split. The balcony allows for a view of the entire bay area and... More

stayed here just for the one night, took a while to find at first, it being shown in the wrong place on the tourist maps. it was very homely and comfortable, just like staying in somebody's flat, great balcony's with views of split, good facilities, helpful owner and very comfy beds all at a very reasonable price. highly recommend.

I stayed in Fairytale Hostel while hitchhiking the Balkans, and this place welcomed with open arms and heart. Hostel is located in perfect location within walking distance to all of tourist attractions in Split. The rooms are quite spacious , clean and light. But what makes this hostel better than the rest is the service and the welcoming attitude from... More

I visited Split in the off-season. The hostel was almost empty, but I enjoyed meeting the other travelers. The receptionist was very welcoming. From the bus station, you can reach the hostel by walking towards the Palace and then through a large parking lot. Don't take the long way on the road. It's located on the top floor of a... More

This hostel is just a few minute walk from the old town. Because of it's elevation it features a wonderful view over the city and the harbor from the south-west facing balcony. The beds in the dorm rooms are the most comfortable I've had in the many hostels I've stayed in. Furthermore all the rest of the facilities are perfectly... More
