“True Croatian Hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

The hostel has everything you'd expect such as sanitation, air conditioning, free internet, communal kitchen and a nice shady hangout area. What we didn't expect was how nice the family are who run the hostel. We really had a lovely stay, and felt that we were really welcome. Will definitely return.

Room Tip: Just talk to the family. They'll help you find what you need.

Our experience at apartments nikolla was good. The staff were very flexible, the rooms were clean and the shared bathroom was always kept clean. Overall it was a great stay and I would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in a relatively good location

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights whilst travelling croatia, the place was fairly basic yet clean and comfortable. However We were eaten alive by bed bugs, the place was obviously infested and we actually saw the bugs on the bed at night time. I would seriously recommend that poeple avoid this hostel, the price may be appealing however it's not worth the discomfort of being covered in painful bites for the duration of your holiday. After returning to the UK we took the time to read a few more reviews and found out that many other people have had the same issue so it clearly isnt just the room that we stayed in!

Found the hostel in around 45 minutes - wasn't quite as easy as the map implied, although a heavy suitcase didn't help! Were recipitents of a friendly greeting - water and cake which was just what was needed! Stayed in private apartments - very clean, air conditioned and comfortable - but would be greatly improved with a kettle/mini fridge - it is a few minute walk to the communal dining area so a hot drink isn't as easy as it could be. Went back to communal dining room - no space, and a fairly hostile atmosphere - but this was more down to the other travellers than the place itself. Is a good location within Split, with most things close by.
Further disappointments - cancelled one of our nights well in advance and never recieved any confirmation that this had been accepted and on arrival had to explain - and were not, quite cheekily, given our desposit back for that night even though it said that would be the case but we were too tired too argue sadly!
All in all, a reasonable place to stay.

It's hard to give a review of Apartments Nikolla as we stayed twice and had two very different experiences. Our first visit was great, we had a lovely clean room, private bathroom, air conditioning, free cake and icy cold water - great after our journey over to Croatia.

Our second visit however, on our last night in Croatia, was a bit of a shambles (although we did still get the very good cake!) - we were placed in the "other" accomodation that Nikolla owns and it was awful. No air con or private bathroom which would have been ok but the room was very hot, with only 1 small fan between four of us - which had just been placed on a chair and so did not reach any of us anyway. There was a small balcony but it was piled high with old rusting chairs and so was inaccessible. The doors to the balcony were broken and one of the panels was missing so there wasn actually a hole in the door. The other window in the room was also broken. The room was above a restaurant which was very noisy until the early hours - and obviously we couldn't block out the noise by closing the windows as they were broken. We did try and close the curtains though - and the curtain pole fell off the wall, out of the window and in to the street below!

I wouldn't say that you shouldn't stay at the Apartments Nikolla but please do make sure that you're staying in the nice bit!!!
