“A place to feel at home :)”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

Old town was easily the best hostel I've stayed in since leaving Australia early last year. Many hostels seem cold and uninviting but not this place. The staff actually take the time to get to know you. That could mean getting people together who are keen to play games, go for dinner our go to the local pub. The owners are also really nice people and you can tell they love their job. Old town hostel had everything i needed that i even extended my stay a week :). Also you couldn't ask for a better location sited right in the middle of a beautiful old palace, everything you need like grocery shopping, beach, pubs, cafes, fast food, restaurants are all walking distance from old town as well which is perfect!

Old Town Hostel is a great position (once you find it!) The staff are very friendly and easy going. They will help you with anything you want, including great dinner suggestions. The double room, though small was great, with a really nice view of the city. Definitely recommend.

The place is in an excellent location BUT I placed a bottle of vodka in the freezer and the next day I came home to it frozen to which that means that someone had drank it and added water to it. No appreciation for property.

I think Old Town ranks as my favorite hostel, ever. The hostel somehow attracts amazing fellow travelers and the staff really cultivate a friendly, homey atmosphere. The view out of the window into Old Town is surreal and the hostel is cheerfully decorated, spotlessly clean, and comfortable. Great restaurant/attraction/bar recommendations and super fun people to party with. Thanks for everything!

As soon as you walk in the door you can feel the atmosphere is an embellishment of the chilled out vibe for the whole of Croatia. The owner, Dora, couldn't do enough for my friend and I and was immediately personable and made sure we were comfortable - there was no awkwardness you find in some business-like hostels - we were made to feel incredibly welcome and the hostel is obviously like a second home for her and the rest of the staff have the same attitude, the advice offered and care taken with visitors is better than any other hostel in town (and I stayed in practically all of them over the duration of the summer!). It's set up to be social, comfortable and fun; if you're not interested in having a new experience with new people, then there other places to go, otherwise, I wouldn't recommend anywhere else.

I arrived at this hostile very late at night and the owner was still there and she checked us in with politeness and sincerity. We met many people throughout our time there who were fantastic travelers and citizens of the city of Split. One of these days I will return!!!!!!

I love my stay here. It's in a great location, in the centre of Old Town and really close to a pretty park. I found it easy to meet people, especially in the lounge room and like the cute little kitchen. Staff were friendly, an more than willing to take you out and show you around. Would definitely stay here again!
