One of most cleanest hostels I evenn have been.


Wonderful place to stay! From the very first moment we were amazed by the friendliness of the staff and the amazing location. The young lady at the reception was really helpful with telling us about the sights in Split. She also helped us carry our luggage to our room. The hostel was very clean and felt like home! We have never been in a more clean hostel. We stayed in two rooms and both were newly renovated with modern interiors and a beautiful decor. We will stay again! Thank you Apinelo!

The hostel location is excellent. There are old town and public transportation nearby. Unfortunately, the hostel didn't have any social meeting to meet diverse friends, but it was ok just to have a good sleep.


This hostel (almost hotel, honestly) was simply great. Super clean room with great facilities (flat screen TV and computer). The hostel is located very close to bus station and old town. The guy on the reception desk was very helpful and gave us a lot of tips and advices what to see and eat in Split. Highly recommended, good value for money!


looked OK on the outside but hygiene was really bad inside. Tried to boil water and turned out there were deposited particles inside the boiler, there were nails and cnadies leftover in bed, soup was empty, dusty floor. Not recommended.

Hi. We are pretty sure that this comment was meant for some other property you were staying in. Cleanless is our major priority and there is no way that this could happened. Kind regards


This hostel is beyond excellent, absolutly recommend it, everything was great and staff was UBERLY nice with us. Really clean!


It is a small hostel, but very clean and friendly staff who works there. Reception was not open 24/7 though, so tough if you're leaving early in the morning or arriving really late. There is a kitchen that is stocked with supplies and free tea and coffee, so that was nice to cook in and store stuff in the fridge. It is a very quiet hostel though. Excellent location, very close to the bus stop and to the beach.


The apartment has a disco ball. Need I say More? Good location, good price, very clean and spacious. The apartment is on the ground floor so not a lot of light. Quick laundry service. Very kind staff.


One of the best hostels we've stayed. The room was excellent, very clean and super comfortable. We booked a private room so it was like having your own apartment which it was great. The staff was super friendly and helpful, we would definitely go back. Thank you!


This hostel was in a great location, very close to the port/bus station, as well as the old town. There were also several restaurants in the area that were great and significantly more affordable than the more tourist-frequented spots in the old town. The staff was lovely and very helpful in helping me plan a day trip to Krka, as well as check bus and catamaran schedules. My only complaint would be that there were only two bathrooms (one male, one female), which was very inconvenient at times.


Just awesome, we stayed in a deluxe private apartment with the same price of a 10-person dorm in Vienna. Simply speechless when we arrived in the enormous hostel room. It's just better than a hotel room. We have our own kitchen, bathroom, TV, computer and even a disco ball. Everything was working fine here and it is located right next to a supermarket, so convenient.


Fine hostel. Lovely staff. Excellent location. However the men's shower was almost flooded. Except that it was brilliant.


Amazing hostel! The staff were so kind and helpful, and the facilities are really clean. The bed are really comfortable, and each bed had a reading light and plugin. I loved my stay, and I would recommend this hostel to anybody.


The staff were beyond helpful. My bus was late coming in but the man at the front desk waited past the hours of operation to let me in. Nice one apenilo hostel
