Upon leaving the Bus/ Train/ Ferry Terminal, walk North-West following the road leading towards Split’s Old Town. The road will take a hard right-hand turn (almost 180 degrees). Follow the turn until you reach the traffic lights and cross the road here. Turn left onto the pavement (retracing your steps). You’ll pass several souvenir/ market stalls and eventually reach a large stone building (the South-East corner of the Dioclatian’s Palace). Turn right here and follow the street where you’ll pass several more souvenir stalls and follow the palace on your left hand side. Follow this road until you reach Štrosmajerov Park. Keep the park on your left and follow the wall on your right and turn right at the junction when you reach the road. Cross the pedestrian crossing immediately in front of you, carry on straight ahead onto the pedestrian area where you will see cafes and bars, and market stalls during the daytime. This leads to a car park. Walk to the top of the car park and you will see our building immediately in front and to the right of you (the building with the balconies), and you will also see some temporary construction. The entrance to the building is on the West/ left-hand side of the building. To the right of the door you will see our address, 3 Istarska and our hostel sign. Congratulations, you’ve arrived!If you have problems finding us, you can always ask someone for directions, especially young people as they almost surely speak English. From the airport take the shuttle bus, which will stop at the main bus station. From there just follow the above directions.
