This hostel is easy to find from the ferry port/bus station etc - only a 10 minute walk max. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Both the dorms and common room area were kept clean throughout our stay and rooms all have air con! there are only two bathrooms with showers and toilet but this didn't seem to be a problem. Overall, we were very happy with our stay here - one of the best hostels we stayed in throughout our trip around Croatia.

Simply the best place to be in Split... Nice and colourful hostel on the roof top in the town center! The owner Antea is taking care for everything, always funny and helpful. Only a few steps from the Diokletian-Palace, Green Market etc. You can decide to visit the beach to the left passing the harbor or to the right (very nice lying in front of a parc. Definitely trying to come back soon. Thanks a lot! ;-)

Really felt like home. Probably most because it is an actual apartment that they turned into a hostel. The manager is a really friendly person. The hostel is in the last floor of the building. The bedroom i stayed and also the living room had a balcony with a great view of the city (big plus for the hostel). There were two bathrooms. Both had a shower and a toilet bowl. Really wide space and good furniture. It is minus than 10 minutes from the old city by foot.

They said that they had free parking and that's why we choose the Hostel. But when we arrived, the'parking'was in the street, as everyone else,and it was impossible to park near the Hostel. Staff friendly, and helped us a lot.

You know how much I love this hostel when you see a 100% rating! Despite the fatigue from traveling, fairytale still gave us a wonderful staying experience. The receptionist, who also happens to be the boss, was extremely helpful when we approached her for information about the city. The general cleanliness of the hostel (including toilet and rooms) is excellent! Large individual lockers allow you to keep your large luggage securely. Lcation is excellent, just 5mins walk from the old town!

Great hostel in a great part of the city. Antea was great, she was able to let me know where to go in the city and also if I had questions about Croatia she was able to answer all questions. Overall great experience, would recommend to anyone!

Great hostel. Very nice private room with cupboard space! it was very quiet when we were there so often we had the place to ourselves. There's a little balcony to enjoy the sunset and a small, but well equipped kitchen. The only slight hitch was walking up to the fifth floor with our heavy packs.

If that picture in the email is for your hostel change it, nothing says we're the same as everyone else as a bunch of people jumping. Only real comments i guess, maybe some tea and coffee for residents in the morning would be great, happy to pay a bit of extra Kuna for that. But yea staff friendly, helpful, willing to help, nice small common room and balcony so you can't not meet people

The staff make this place one of the best hostels in Split. They are always there to chat with and share local secrets and knowledge. It is warm, friendly and so much fun! Beautiful balcony overlooking the city, lovely common areas, very clean bathrooms/bedrooms/kitchen areas. Great for both relaxing and partying.

The best hostel I've stayed at throughout my two month backpacking trip. So thankful I found this place! Super clean, and the staff treats you like family. We even just dropped by without a reservation and they were more than pleased to have us back. Wonderful atmosphere and people. Highly recommended !! Oh and the showers are always hot.

The overall atmosphere is calm and casual which is really great. There is a nice kitchen to cook in and sunny balconies with sea views to chill on. There are only 2 showers for the entire 18 beds, however, and in busy season showering must be a real mission. Sometimes I wonder if the staff aren't a bit too casual; often no one is even there.
