Lovely apartment, great view. Hard to find but staff came to find us when we were lost. Wifi didn't work - which was a huge pain as we needed to book lots of things and had to pay to get internet at a nearby cafe instead. Wasn't a hostel. Advertised as 4 beds but there were 2 doubles. Only a problem if people don't like spooning like we do :) hot water ran out after one shower and we didn't know we needed to switch on the boiler. Quite far from Split.Nevertheless, beautiful room and facilities.

Was at a different place than indicated. The landlady was friendly and there was a very nice view from the balcony over the city to Split and the sea. Place was really worn down, with a lot of stuff (clothes etc) that seem to belong to someone else in the room. Overall it was quite dirty and dusty. Towels snelles after cigarette smoke. Would not stay here again

Hosts of the place are very lovely and welcoming, we felt like at home there. Although, you should know that air conditioning means only a fan, private bath room is actually a common bathroom on the corridor and 5 minutes to the bus and the beach is actually at least 15 minutes, on a hot day a lot more. But, if you don't mind these things (we didn't that much), it is a lovely place to stay, nice surroundings in a quiet zone and a good value for money.

We stayed at Giovanna's sister's house where the family made us feel so welcome - providing a wonderful dinner and endless cold beers. You could not wish for better hosts! The location is outside Split on top of a hill with wonderful views. Ideal for those who want to avoid the hectic city, but not for people in a hurry, even though the family kindly picks guests up and off at the nearest bus station by car. Again for the wonderful company of the family -highly recommended!

Giovanna and her family are amazing hosts. We had a good time there. They were always making sure we had everything we needed. We had our own "small" apartment, with a good kitchen and bathroom. The place is a little outside from Split, but if you have a car, it is a great option. Getting to Split by bus is also very easy. Good stay.

This is heartwarming guesthouse, the staff is very sweet and attentive!!! You feel a lot like home while staying here. The room we stayed in was good, and the balcony had a very nice view. The location is not to good, because it's a bit far from Split, but for one night it's very good!

Giovanna was such a lovely lady, she has a nice little business! The room was excellent and had a great balcony and view. It's about a 40 mins ride from split, good for a bit of chill out time if you are on your travels!

Had such a warming stay. The hospitality I received was absolutely outstanding. The family who own the property really go above and beyond to make the stay enjoyable. It was like being at home but in another country.

Lovely house, very relaxed place for staying. Really nice staff, welcomed with a little nice home brew drink and willing to provide the best information about the environment. The rooms could have been a bit more clean: especially under the couch and beds. Price was really nice and by bus it is cheap to get around from the house. Thanks a lot for a pleasant stay and good luck!

Charming guesthouse run by the nicest, and most helpful family. The owners did everything they could to make our stay as pleasant as possible, including giving us vegetables from their garden to add to our dinner! We received a very warm welcome complete with grapa and cookies after being picked up from the train station. I would definitely stay here again, and wished I had more time to spend there!

We stayed here because it was cheap & that was what we got. Its a decent walk to the closest bus which is then 45min ride to split & closest beach is 20 mins. We asked for a cab number to take us to our next hostel in split but we're told that the staff would take us.We were told to prepay which was fine, but then we were dropped on side of the road not anywhere close to our destination. when we called to ask to be picked up again & taken to actual hostel, we were dismissed extremely rudely.

We had an excellent stay in Giovanni Guesthouse. Although we were only there for one night the owners went above and beyond to make us feel welcome, offering homemade wine, grapa and dinner and giving us lots of useful advice for our trip. We wished we had booked to stay for longer! Although the location is a little bit out of Split there is a bus service nearby and the hosts themselves offer lifts for a reasonable price. The scenery was also very picturesque.

This is such a nice place to stay, with such a lovely family. We had an amazing view out over the water, it's in such a nice location. We were very comfortable, the bus is easy to get into Split and only takes about 30 mins, also it's nice being s bit away from the city. The kitchen was good and two bathrooms between 3 rooms was also very good. Great value for money. The directions are a bit confusing, but everything else was great,
