I had such a good time at this hostel, I was sad to leave! The common areas are comfortable and inviting, and as a result, the place is buzzing with activity. The staff is glad to give their personal recommendations and organize any details necessary for your visit or your next step. Group trips to the beach, attractions, or bars... More

This hostel has a great, laidback atmosphere with very friendly staff. It's perfectly situated with the beach and the town centre within walking distance, great if you're looking for a chilled out place to stay.

One of the best hostels I've stayed in. It's got a great home vibe to it and everybody is very friendly. Antea is very easy going and does a great job running the hostel. It's close to every thing you need!

We arrive here luckily ! After many places offered to us, we arrived to this hostel, it´s a lovely place. If you're looking for a place to stay where you feel great and want to meet nice people. This place responds exactly to my expectations in terms of 'guest house'.

First off, let me say, who cares if this hostel is located four floors up (eight landings)? If you are a view-lover, this is certainly one fabulous find. Off the large common room is a terrace that affords the most amazing views of Split as well as the sunset. You certainly won't find this view from any ground-floor hostel in... More

Not really a hostel. It's an appartement with rooms where you just happen to stay. No sign outside, no website. Just two showers for about 20 persons. Although the sign says non smoking inside, visitors as well as staff smoke certain substances on the balcony, so that the common rooms smells as well. According to house rules noise should be...
