What can I say, the hostel is in the best location possible. Within 15 minutes of everything Split has to offer. The staff go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone. The start of my holiday wouldn't have been as good if I had stayed elsewhere.

Book it!

Worst hostel experience ever. Rocked up only to wait 5hours for someone to rock up and let us in as there was no one at reception. The man then asked for a 200KUNA deposit which I got no receipt for paying.
I had to check out at 9am on the morning I left... There was no one there to give my deposit back as the guy who runs it was at home. There were 2 girls that even missed their flights waiting over 2 hours for him to rock up.
There was 1 bathroom (with 1 shower!!!) for all dorms combined which is rediculous.
No lounge/kitchen/common area very weird atmosphere.
Don't recommend this ever

So despite booking online for a bed in a 4 bed dorm, when I arrived I was told there was no such room and I would be in a mixed 8bedder, which I'm fairly sure is false advertising and is illegal.

The room seemed like a reasonable price at approx 20euros a night for its location, until you arrive and are greeted with a 25euro safety deposit, which isn't mentioned anywhere before you arrive, which costs more then the actual bed itself, which you get back when you check-out. Unluckily, if you have to check out before 10am checkout time, you have to call him and arrange a time to get the deposit back, a couple of girls had arranged to meet him and leave early and yet he didn't show and they lost their deposits as they had to catch a train, which for a traveller is a lot of money, in fact he didn't show up until 10.30am anyway and when he did he was very rude to us all.

I would not stay here again and wish I'd known beforehand what it was like!

Cheap but DEFINITELY not worth the skint.

- booked on booking.com ; booked a single bed in a 2 bed dorm. completely false advertisement and illegal I'm sure as I was told on arrival that they do not have such a thing and I can either stay in a 3 bed dorm, or an 8 bedder. 3 other travelers had similar rude shocks. As it was just for one night, I just lumped it.

- 200kuna 'deposit'!!! Nothing in the hostel costs that much and the 2 keys were definitely not gold plated.

- 3 of us had our deposits unjustifiably withheld resulting in a 3 hour delay on the morning of check out.
Reason; I had done a wash in the 'staff only' washing machine as the local laundrette was closing by the time I got to Split. Found out later that the hostel charges 75Kuna for a wash (mentioned on a very little sign stuck onto a cupboard and not on the main noticeboard.daylight robbery. 10 Euros! Aforementioned laundrette on Sperun - 25Kuna) and agreed to have it deducted from said deposit.
The guy who told me of the charge had just instructed the person on duty the day after to withhold mine as I had allegedly 'supplied washing powder' to 2 other girls to do washes in the machine after me. These girls had their deposits withheld as they had allegedly used the machine without permission. These girls were also guests who had been tricked into the '2 bed dorm' scheme and because we had gotten talking about it....it may have rubbed management up the wrong way.
Proof he had of illegal clothes washing - he saw it on video camera from home. WTF?!?!!?!?!?
Needless to say, couldn't show us the footage, I won't take any of his crap. Got the money back.

- video cameras.....and not informed about them being there.....WHY?

- Extremely odd staff and very dead, unfriendly atmosphere. No hellos, or usual hostel banter.

- All your kit (linen, pillow, towel) is found in your designated locker. Felt prison/camp-like to me.

- Lots of signs everywhere with silly restrictions - i.e; 'your deposit will be forfeited if you leave your belongings on a bed that's not yours'.

- There is someone there manning the 'desk' from 8-5(?)pm and co-ordinating to have someone there outside these hours is a huge hassle.

- No common area/breakout space, no kitchen - not even a toaster or kettle or.....anything, random shower areas - one with a jacuzzi with marble floors that get disgustingly dirty and slippery, and a blocked shower enclosure.


Thankfully, it was clean.

Sorry, no photos as I did not want a memory of this place.
