While the staff was very friendly and accommodating, the apartment was dirty (mold on walls and around windows) and lacked several of the advertised features - wifi was not accessible from the room, kitchen did not have enough silverware, etc. We also booked a room with a double bed and received three single beds.

This hostel is split over several sites and after booking into a central location, it was a surprise to be walked 10 min out of town to a much seedier area and told our room was here. On the plus side, we did get a much larger space than we were expecting - a full private apartment. Bit shabby but fine for a few days. No wi-fi and air con not in bedroom. Slight mis selling in our opinion.

the room was in a good location and the staff was very friendly, but the house was pretty run down; there was hardly anything (no glasses) in the kitchen, the towls were extremely small (just one small one for each person), the pictures online looked much better..

A lovely hostel run by an Italian lady, who is clearly very fond of her small wite dog. There are pictures of dogs and other kitcsh items around the place. Not clinical at all, though the walls are paper thin...

We were put in a separate apartment, about a 5 minute walk from the hostel. Clearly there was an overbooking. Although it's nice to have our own space, ensuite room and kitchen facilities, there was no utensils to cook or prepare food with. In regards to the security, the main door to the street was unlocked and the door to the property had a simple lock. No wifi, no aircon and holes in the walls in the bathroom (clearly an unfinished refurb).

Worst experience we had, totally frustrated our trip to Croatia. What happened is we made a reservation in this place because of good reviews and location (inside the Dioclecian Palace). When we arrived there, they simply put us in another hotel, out of the city center. It wasn't a misunderstood. We were deceived and the owner acted in bad faith. They do have other rooms out of the building, but at the same street. It was not our case, we had a reservation for this building and stayed far away.

Review is actually for apartment Sunce which is close to Hostel Dioklecijan. As a couple we booked and then sent a message requesting a private room, as there were none left at Hostel Dioklecijan the owner contacted other local places to find us a private space, where we ended up was fantastic and we were extremely pleased with the service from Hostel Dioklecijan.

though it is a new hostel, some of the stuff is not finished yet. Seems that owner did not decide to go on the construction. It is in a good location. It is easy to locate. It is good for young people, they would like the young atmosphere. I think the faclitiy is too simple. Nothing we can find except bed and 1 chair. The room is not spacious.

If you book a two-bed-dorm you will get into an extra appartment. We stayed in the hostel twice. The first appartment was really nice, second one not so nice.

We stayed in the double apartment. It was lovely right in the middle of town and all it's attractions!

We ordered privet room with bathroom. That's not what we found! So they promised us we would be the only one using the bathroom on that floor. Bullshit. We wake up and a line of others guest was made in front of the bathroom. We couldn't even get our stuffs from the inside. Lies is the worst thing a hostel can do for you. Sad but true.

We arrived, having confirmed our stay by phone the day before and booked with a deposit 4 weeks before to the wrong location as the hostel had moved. Access to directions from your website was unobtainable and google sent us to the original address. We found the diocjian hostel and were then told our party of 12 were to be split up and moved to smaller premises across the city. The accommodation was poor and nothing like we had booked. Very poor communication and last minute changes spoilt it.
