So, you decided to check out Croatia this year? Small country in the southeast corner of Europe, with the cleanest sea, thousand islands scattered across the horizon, great sunsets, great food and wine and friendly people everybody was telling you about?So, it is decided. All you need now is a place to stay. Place where you can feel at home, from which you can go up and down the coast as you like and then come back to cool down within thick walls of an ancient Roman city.Why don't you try the second best hostel in the world? Leaning on a thick wall of palace it used to be a warehouse in the 16th century. At some point it's interior space was converted to a shopping mall and that is when we decided to make it into a hostel...

A modern funky hostel. The place looks cool but the design of the room has some functional issue. Pros: Centrally located, right in the heart of old town, just a couple blocks from Diocletian's Palace. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Cons: It is very hard to get up and especially to get down from the top bunk. I'm a rock climber and still find it very awkward to get up and down.  The room is a essentially a very narrow hallway, it can be claustrophobic to some people. The four of us stayed in a 6-person dorm, still felt very crowded. Very little space to store personal belongings. No hooks to hang towels and/or jackets. No temperature control inside the room. You have to ask the front desk to turn on/off AC.  The shower floods the hallway.  If you have a rental car you need to walk about 15min to free parking.

This hostel is fine. I was in a dorm room with (I think) 6 beds - the beds are built into the wall, each with their own shelf, light and power outlet. They have more of a feel of a basic Japanese capsule hotel, where everyone is in their private little box. It cuts down a bit on camaraderie but definitely offers more privacy than the typical “room of bunk beds” hostel dorm. Towels were provided. The dorm room had its own toilet, shower and sink. There were also lockers for each person (lock included)but the upper lockers seemed high to me - if you’re not a tall person, I suggest requesting a lower bunk (which comes with a lower locker). No kitchen or lounge area but there is a restaurant downstairs. And there is an elevator. The hostel is close to Split’s major historic attractions, as well as the ferry port and the day-excursion boats.

I stayed in this hostel for 2 nights by myself. I was in a large room (10 people from memory) and was not a fan. I was placed on a top bunk that was extremely awkward to climb up to. My assigned locker was also up high and really hard to use. I could not reach it probably to maximise its use. This mean to could not store my stuff in it. There wasn’t any other room to place my stuff so I ended up sleeping with it at the end of my already small bed - made for very uncomfortable sleeping. Also not a fan of the neon yellow walls everywhere. Just a bit much. The location was great, but hostel very basic. Not much atmosphere with the exception of the restaurant downstairs.

I wasn't at this large hostel very long, getting there in the evening and leaving early morning, but it was clean and very central. I was able to leave my bag in luggage room before check in. This is a modern hostel with bright colours and a space age feel to it. I was in a mixed dorm, with the guy making sure he put me into a bottom bunk (as were the other girls in my room), even without me asking. Each bunk has a curtain, shelf, plug socket and light. There was a separate toilet and shower in the room, as well as a sink in the main part of the room. There was no kitchen or other communal areas, instead there's a cafe bar downstairs, which has a couple of guys on guitars playing covers a few nights a week. The hostel is in the old town, where bars have to close overnight 1am. The overnight staff dealt 3 times with the same group of boys who came back very drunk, trying to bring non-guests back to their room to carry on the party. Luck of the drawer in a hostel in a party town.
