trying to find a better view! trying to find a more comfortable bed! trying to find a staff better than Antea! Backpackers and Fairytale is a beautiful hostel in the center of Split. I stay there for few days Antea, the owner, is a very great girl and she was helping me for visit Split and for discover all the beautiful places around it. There's a great friendly atmosphere and in the common room you can meet people from all over the world. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Wifi!!

I had a really great time in the hostel! The staff was wonderful and incredible helpful at all times,provding me with all the information I needed. They even put me in contact with people who arranged daily trips like kayaking, biking tours and late evenings with dinner. The location of the hostel is great, barely 5 min walk from the heart of the city. The facilities were in good shape and I really liked that the bathrooms were clean.Thanks for a great time and to the great people working there!

Antea is very nice, well spoken and she will definitely give you lots of tips and advices regarding stuff you can do in the area. Her hostel should definitely be a place to go to!!! :)

Cool young staff, good common areas. very limited kitchen. Location is just minutes walk from everything. staff let me leave my bag at the hostel whilst I partied in Hvar, not in a secure area. 6 flights of stairs with luggage was brutal.

Really nice, friendly hostel. Nice social areas with an awesome balcony overlooking the city! Small kitchen, handy for preparing basic meals. Ryan that worked there took us out for a meal and night out with workers and guests from other hostels which was a great way to meet people. Good location, 5/10 mins walk from old town.

Lovely friendly people. Very welcoming and always willing to help you out. Good wifi reception, and fantastic view from the top floor of the building where the hostel is situated over the harbour.

Backpackers Fairytale is based in an excellent central location of Split, Croatia. The Hostel itself looks over the Palace District as well as the coast. Inside the hostel you will find a colourful, fresh and clean environment full of friendly people to socialise with. I felt welcome and comfortable from the beginning and the common area was a great place to meet people. The time I spent there was a pleasure and I hope to return to Split again and to see everyone again at the BF hostel.

Score would have been higher, but I think I got the worst bed in the hostel. It's a top bunk above which the A/C is mounted. If the dorm feels warm and the A/C gets turned on, only you will get blasted with cold air and would make for a very uncomfortable sleep. Since the A/C is plugged there too, you get no power outlet by your bunk -- nearest one would be behind a locker down by someone's bunk. Hostel should realize that the room layout should be fixed.

The location is perfect and your given a map on arrival with staff tips on where to eat, sunbathe and party which is very helpful. The atmosphere is good and people friendly. Small downsides that most hostels have- not enough showers or toilets, there is no lock on one toilet and the wifi doesn't work in the room (double, it may be different in the dorms.) All in all it's worth it for location and staff, just don't expect too much

Staff were friendly and helpful. Washrooms and common areas weren't always the cleanest, but still a good place to stay.

Had a wonderful stay here, the staff are lovely and helpful, atmosphere was great and I met lots of awesome people. Another bathroom wouldn't hurt and a slightly bigger kitchen but these are very minor complaints and I would definitely stay again.
