No locks on the dorm room doors. Useless air conditioner. Very loud at night. Only positive point is the location and cheap room prices.

Was in an amazing location, right in town with beach, bus station, restaurants and cultural attractions right outside the doorstep. However was very cramped with no room for luggage- the hallways and stairwells were full of backpacks and suitcases that couldn't fit into the rooms, and in our room the door was broken, and all the beds in the dorm had slats that fell out. Perfect for one or two night stay but definitely no longer.

Except for the great location, the facilities are average. Thus the value for money is poor

The room was nice but the toilet/showers is communal and has no security so anyone could walk in on you. Also there were no kitchen facilities which i didnt like.

Positives: Great location, nice beds, staff quite accommodating. Negatives: no common area to socialise, air con in 10 bed dorm was poor.

nice rooms with lockers for bags, except they did not have a key for our room to lock whilst sleeping. Lots of stairs to carry heavy luggage up

The only really good thing about the hostel is its location. It seems that the staff doesn't care about anything : not advising some places to visit for the guests, not cleaning enough, not repairing door locks or plugs... The result is a poor atmosphere, that made me very happy to leave Split, even though it's a very beautiful place.

Pros: Location is unbeatable, really helpful staff, nice looking rooms, laundry service Cons: Cold showers, beds that keep breaking, small lockers, air conditioning that doesn't work, unisex bathrooms

Staff were a bit snobby as if we were a burden. Entrance is through a very nice restaurant so it's a bit awkward. But overall a nice stay. And the location is brilliant.

Has to be one of the worst hostels I've stayed in. They have no common room, no kitchen or facilities. The staff were very stand off-ish, and I had to wait for them to finish playing on their phones or talking to someone on it before i could talk to them. All of the luggage is kept on a balcony and there is no luggage room or anything. The only good thing is the location.

If cold showers, no common area, and being told to be quiet in the restaurant during a mild conversation is what your after then this is the place for you!!!

The location is really good. Thats the only good thing of this hostel that in appearance is very nice. I couldnt take a hot shower. The shower was really cold and i tried several times. The personal never could give a reason of why that was happening and they only would say "you have to wait". I went in different hours and never could get hot water. The toilets speccially and the rooms are not clean enougg. The service is bad in general, there is no service at all. They dont even givegood advice

Good location and thats about it. I got my MacBook stolen from a looked locker, my friend lost his Macbook, Ipad and phone from his locker, and another guy The lockers was not broken open but strangely enogh unlocked and then locked again (maybe with the spare key in reception). The reception refused to call the police. Its no keys to the dorms or the hostel and people can come and go all day and all night. Its no common rooms or kitchen, only beds and bathrooms

Great location but really hard to find. If I hadn't of asked I would not of found it. It was also really awkward walking through the restaurant when entering and exiting the Hostel as the restaurant staff seemed to get really annoyed.... it's the only way in though!! Also on the website it says you accept euros and the local currency, but when trying to pay with euros this was not accepted, make what currency you accept CLEAR!! Beds were also not made at the time of check in!!

Filthy rooms. No luggage storage - bags left blocking corridors, doors and stairs. No common areas or kitchen - the bar downstairs was too expensive to eat or drink in. Bathrooms were bad - smelly and dirty with Lots of locks broken and one toilet was seperated from the bathroom by a shower curtain. No hot water through our whole stay. No locking doors and people had electronics stolen from lockers. Location is great but Split is so small it's not worth it, you can walk everywhere in 20 mins.

We had booked a 4 female doorm but got mixed 14 doorm. From what we've heard it happends more often. There was no hot shower, seems there is no hot water At all, but they make it seem that it is just broken. I think there are better hostels on a good location in split

My dorm E door didn't close properly, let alone lock - but I had a big under-bed locker which fitted all my belongings in. Staff very helpful, carried my luggage upstairs, helped me find places to go, friendly people. No common area or kitchen so socialising was a bit tricky especially if people wanted to sleep, but it still had a good atmosphere. Showers went cold really quickly - I never got a hot one for my whole stay. They were kept clean though & the location was brilliant, so central!
