“Great Location, basic room!”
Reviewed September 12, 2010

This was a cheap place to stay in Split compared to other hostels/ hotels, it was a great location, just a short walk away from the riva and the palace. It felt safe and we were greeted by the owner who provided us with a map of Split and gave recommendations on where to go/ restaurants/ attractions etc. We stayed in a twin room with our own bathroom which was seperate from the main hostel. There was a laundry service available, a roof terrace and free internet (no printer) in the main building. However, despite these plus points, I would not like to stay here again. There was no a/c and no fan so the room was extremely hot, the large amount of mosquitos outside meant keeping windows and doors closed and in the heat of Split in August, it was unbearably hot and meant that there was a damp, musty smell especially in the bathroom which didn't feel particularlyclean! There were no towels provided and lack of utensils in the kitchen of the hostel.

Reviewed November 5, 2008

We stayed at Hostel Manuela for 4 nights and although there were only 2 or 3 other people staying there we had issues with lack of hot water and had to have a couple of cold showers. Also, the communal areas were very small and cramped and there was not enough room for everyone to sit to eat breakfast. Also, there was free internet in this area but the owners were there using it more often than not.

These issues didn't bother us too much as it was a budget choice and Split as a place was incredible. However, on leaving we accidentaly left our mobile phone in the room and contacted the owner, manuela, who was very helpful and said she would post this back to us - of course we offered to refund the cost and waited for the phone to arrive. 6 weeks and several ignored emails later we realised we were not going to get the phone back and cancelled the SIM card only to find that she had used 50 dollars of credit!!

There are nicer places for a similar budget in Split.
