We travelled to Split and had booked the last 2 available rooms, 2 of our group in an 8 bed dorm, and the other 3 in a 3 bed apartment with en-suite (roughly the same price). Upon arrival the 3 in the apartment were told that the apartment was a ten minute walk from the hostel, so we were very annoyed, but it was only about 5 minutes away and was so lovely, really sweet little apartment (can easily sleep 5) plus it had air-con and cooking equipment. The 2 boys had to stay in the hostel and didn't enjoy it at all. It was better if you want to meet people, but there was no air-con and they had many sleepless nights due to the unbearable heat. It was however, very clean and the staff were lovely. The hostel markets itself as a party hostel, which it isn't, but can assist you in finding bar crawls to do etc.
If you can get the apartment I really recommend this hostel (although you won't make new friends there), such good value (especially if split between 5) however if you have to stay in the rooms then I recommend elsewhere...especially in the height of summer!
