Prime location in the middle of old town. Nice rooms and very helpful staff who gave me great advice on both where to go for food and drinks. Would definately stay there again if I ever end up in Split.

Never enjoyed people more than here. Nice and lively although not so very big and anonymous as many other hostels. As you would expect, it is situated right in the heart of Split's wonderful old town. As good as it got.

I was in the big room next to the door so there was more morning foot traffic than I would've liked, but that's what you get with a hostel. It's worth it though, and the view of the cathedral bell tower was gorgeous. Plenty of outlets, good wifi, just know that you're sharing two bathrooms so time wisely. Chloe took... More

This hostel is sooo awesome. Really located to the old town, initial plan just to stay 1night but end up 3nights! Chloe is such a doll, she showed us around and introduced us to some of her friends which is awesome. She also showed us a non touristy area to go enjoy the sea and we definitely feels like home....

This was the first hostel I'd stayed at - ever, but it was a really good experience! It can be a little tricky to find though! Everything in the palace is a short walk, so it didn't take long to get to other restaurants or to the oceanfront. This place IS small, but that does make it easy to meet... More

The old town hostel is located conveniently in the Diocletian's palace in a residential apartment building. Rooms are small as what previous reviewers have said but are clean and not a problem. The biggest problem is the crammed corridor and proximity of common space to the rooms. Staff leave by 10pm and hostel go-ers are left on their own afterwards.... More

I loved this hostel. Great vibe, awesome location and very social. It's in the heart of the Old Town so feels very special. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Only thing I'd recommend is that they weren't too helpful with what to do around Split but the tourist office is just around the corner. Thanks for a great stay

We had a really nice time staying at this warm and cosy hostel. The location is more than perfect inside the Diocletians’s palace walls and the staff (we met Dora and Walter, a perfect duo!) are very friendly and attentive. This contributed positively to our stay in Split and we return with great memories! We highly recommend this place, you... More
