We stayed here for the last three days of August.

Good bits

- Great location
- clean (but needs a bin in the room)
- good shower
- generally quiet
- comfy bed
- helpful reception staff

Bad Bits

- Room was not cleaned
- bedding not changed
- no bin in room for rubbish
- generally very basic furnishings

Would I stay here again. No becuase I woudl pay more and stay somewhere nicer but if you just need a base and want to use the rom for sleeping only then it is fine.

Room Tip: we stayed in the separate one bedroom apartment so I cannot vouch for the hostel rooms and shared fa...

Location is spot on - it's right in the middle of Split old town, although it's a little bit difficult to find initially. Only a 5-10 minute walk to the bus station and ferries.
The room was very comfy, clean, spacious, and cool from the air con which was a big welcome. The girl on reception was very friendly but not hugely knowledgeable about things locally or getting to the airport. If I were in Split again I'd definitely go back.

We stayed here May 24-26. It was our last stop on our 3-week Europe trip (Italy and Croatia). We arrived early in the morning due to a very early ferry from Hvar. We must have arrived at the hostel just after 9am. We knew check-in was later, but we wanted to drop our luggage so we can go explore. There was a note on the door saying to call a number and someone will be here in 5 minutes. As international travellers, we did not have access to our phones. However, luckily, a guest was leaving and we snuck in behind them. We were then able to easily access the Wifi and we emailed the hostel informing them we were here. Unfortunately, it was not 5 minutes and we had to wait 25 minutes. We did not mind too much as we sat in the lobby and decompressed after an early morning while sipping on a cappuccino from the place across the street. Ivan came and talked to us a bit about his country, Split and showed us where to go on a map. We really enjoyed our stay in Split even if we did not have the best weather. The rooms were small, but cute. Not that we are there to watch tv, but it was the first hostel we were at that actually had a working tv with several English channels. Definitely an added bonus. The location was very central, we could not ask for anything better. We had a very early flight on check-out day and our flight was even too early to take the first bus to the airport. We thought the airport transfer from the hostel was a bit expensive, and Ivan offered us a discount. But we ended up paying him the full amount anyways after I realize dhow far it was and that he probably had to wake up before 4am to come pick us up at the hostel for 4:40am. He is such a lively character. My boyfriend and him spent the whole car ride discussing Croatia history and how it became independent. I just listened in the backseat as I am not a very talkative person at 4am haha. All in all, I would definitely recommend Hostel Spalatus. Simple, yet meets every budget traveller requirement!

Upon arriving in Split we were met by Ivan who was very friendly and helpful. He gave us a map and come recommendations on where to go. He made our stay very enjoyable.
The room was clean, well equipped and felt secure. Lovely bright colours in the bedroom! It was in a great location as it was right in the centre of old town. It was just a few minutes walk to all tourist attractions and about a ten minute walk from the beach. Bed was comfy and we slept really well! Also a nice warm and powerful shower which is always appreciated after a day at the beach!
Free wifi at the hotel was quick and easy to connect to.
Great value for money and we will definitely be returning if we go back to Split!

I just got back from my holiday in Croatia and my first night was spent in Hostel Spalatus. From the beginning I had received easy walking directions to the hostel through email from Ivan, which were very helpful. The woman at reception was so warm and friendly and helped us settle in straight away and even helped to carry my bag up! I was also surprised to receive a call and text from Ivan to make sure I got to the hotel ok :) If you are looking for a clean, comfy, air conditioned place to stay in the center of Split this is the perfect place to stay. Would love to come back soon thanks for a lovely stay.

We stayed here for two night at the beginning of August. After booking on the internet the owner kindly e-mailed us directions on how to find the accommodation. They were detailed and it was fairly easy to find. It is in an excellent location, very central and within easy walking distance to everything you will need in Split. Although it is right near the main street no noise could be heard from our room. The lady at reception was so friendly and welcoming when we arrived. There was plenty of leaflets about places to visit and local attractions on the front desk and she also pointed out numerous places on a map, giving recommendations and answered any questions we had. The room was very spacious with air conditioning, a handy kitchen area with a fridge, a clean bathroom and a nicely decorated bedroom. Having a TV in our rooms was also a bonus as it was possible for us to catch some of the Olympic Games while we were there. A most enjoyable stay and good value for money.
