This hostel looks brand new despite being 5 years old. The staff are phenomenal and the location perfect if you only have a short stay! Rooms are big and despite only having two toilets and two showers I never had to wait the use them. Highly recommend this hostel for anyone coming to split!

Good location, nice and clean rooms. The best part is the huge locker that I can put my big luggage. But need to know there is only one showerbooth can use (one for woman one for man)

We really enjoyed staying at Apinelo Hostel. We had the double room with private ensuite. The room was separate from the hostel itself. It is a 5min walk from the reception in a 3bedroom apartment. The other rooms in the apartment being occupied by other guests. Shared kitchen & smoking area. Bathroom was very clean. Room even had a desktop computer with internet! The disco ball was a nice touch. Great location. 5min walk to old town. Close to buses & ferry. Would definitely stay here again!

Only one female and one male toilet & shower for the whole hostel. Also no common area to socialise. Otherwise, great hostel, good air con & wifi!

Apinelo is hands down, the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Not only was it a great location with a very clean (and air conditioned!) room, the staff was incredibly friendly and so helpful. They offer private rooms and bathrooms, as well. If you're staying in Split, definitely stay at the Apinelo.

A/C was great, staff was sweet and helpful, location was perfect. No hot water when they are doing laundry.

the place we stayed at was another location. People put that it is a hostel when in fact we got sent over to someone else's private rooms.

Hi. In our description it is highlighted that there are certain properties which are located in the other location than hostel/reception. All these properties are clean and nice places to stay with the facilities written in our description on hostelworld. Thank you for staying with us. Kind regards

The staff were very helpful and reccomended an excellent quiet beach a short bus ride away. Probably the cleanest hostel I've stayed at although the lack of common room meant it wasn't great for meeting fellow travellers.

Everything was great - aircon was amazing in the bedrooms and beds very comfy. Not too far from the beach and the centre but was quite difficult to find when we arrived. Cleaners were amazing, the girl at the desk was very friendly but didn't seem to take notice of guests, we arrived and she thought we had been there all day so we weren't very welcomed. Overall though we were very happy. Kitchen needs an over and a freezer, not great if you are planning on eating in. Thank you for a great stay.

A very small but beautiful hostel. The room was so lovely and the big wardrobe lockers were fantastic (especially when you have been living out of a bag for 5 months). It has everything you need for a short stay, and it has aircon which is needed on those HOT Croatian nights, YAY.

Wasn't actually staying at the hostel, were taken to another apartment nearby organised by them. However the staff were friendly and the room was clean and spacious, not exactly in the centre of town but close to the port and bus station.

We stayed in an apartment, which was very nice except for the hot water in the shower running out very quickly. It was in a perfect location, close to botht he old town and the beach, not far from the train station and next door to a grocery store. The apartment iself was very modern and comfortable, I would stay there again in a heart beat! Perfect place in Split.

So amazing. What a great hostel. Very central, 2 minute walk from the port, 5 minute walk from the beach, supermarkets all within 1 minute walk. It is very relaxed, reasonably quiet, which is what we wanted. The staff were great, and were helpful when needed! Wifi was sometimes a bit slow, but I would definitely come back!
