Nice little hostel with all the amenities there. Does what a hostel does best, mixed dorm rooms with a lounge and balcony over looking the main hub of Split. Kitchen and showers were fine, if not a little dirty. Staff were friendly and willing to help us out with knowledge of the area, best eating and drinking spots and hidden... More

Stayed in this hostel for 2 nights and felt very at home. Hostel was very clean and dorms were spacious. Air-con was available throughout the day and night which was good. Felt like we were staying in someone's apartment - very homely with a well equipped kitchen. Slightly hard to find, but worth it for some great views from the... More

This hostel is really good, especially the staff who are very willing to help you out and point you in the right direction in terms of beaches, restaurants, bars and nightlife. On the first day the staff told us to go a beach a little bit further out and it was one of the best decisions of the trip -... More

I only stayed one night at the hostel but everyone is happy it's well placed and clean! Had a very good stay and I recommend it to all happy outgoing travelers. I was also very impressed with the available information and facilities! Thank you so much for the stay :)

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

It's in the best place in Split, just... 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 there for the whole months, because i was doing my Erasmus in Split, and every day i had feeling that i'm home. Common room is big and colorful and location of the hostel is perfect. I was enjoying every sunset on the balcony with amazing view. The hostel is clean so i didn't have feeling even for a... More
