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.

If you are looking for a hostel in Split, dont worry you already find it! I had an awesome day in Split! The location was great (You can walk everywhere), the owner was helpful, friendly, and good security in the dorms. I will go back soon!!!


I had a fantastic stay here! Antea, the owner, was such a lovely girl, very accomodating and willing to help direct me to the bes sights of the ciy. The place was spotless and, althouh that might have been owin to the fact that there were only a couple of people staying there, antea cleaned quite a lot while I was there. The view from my window was lovely, and I just felt extremely welcome the whole time. Would definately stay here again.
