This was a lovely hostel, clean and well maintained with air conditioning which was important in the 35 degree heat! I loved the spacious beds with curtains and power outlet. There was a fridge in room and nice coffee/hot choc in the morning. The staff were extremely nice and helpful and kept the hostel in really nice condition eg. making sure there was always soap/toilet paper etc. The only bad thing was that the showers were often cold. Overall a great place to stay though!


Small, single floor hostel. Lina was super sweet, though it seemed like she wasn't as knowledgable about things to do in Split as is the case for other hostels. There's virtually no building security as all doors were always unlocked. They provide nice-sized lockers, though. No real atmosphere due to pod set-up, but the curtains were a unique touch.


I enjoyed my stay. The only issue was when I left in the early morning. No one was at the front desk and I had to leave my key and was therefore to lock the entrance door.


The Hostel was slightly difficult to find but relatively close to the bus station and ferry terminal. The facilities were clean and the wifi was good, also, it is close to local supermarkets and bakeries. It was a lovely stay and the free coffee machine was a bonus!

Really nice small hostel with brilliant lockers and nice pod beds with curtain which could be pulled across for privacy. Well located as only a short walk to the old town. Staff were nice and let us check in early and felt very secure with 2 locked doors and very heavy duty looking lockers - would definitely stay here again


Very helpful and friendly staff. Great little pods with very large lockets to safely secure your stuff! Not far from the main bus terminal. Great bathroom facilities and free coffee in the morning! What more could you need?!


Sorry it has taken me so long to write this review, I have been finding it hard to settle back in to reality :( My time in Split was amazing, and I very much think a lot of this is down to the lovely staff at Hostel Emanuel, Toni, Tomo, Petra & Lina. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome, even in the transfer from the airport (small fee). The hostel was quite small, but I liked this. It was extremely clean and comfortable and only a short stroll to center. Excellent!!!

Should have stated clearly on their accepted terms of payment (currency) and what is and is not included in the final payment due.


Great big hostel beds! Almost like mini rooms as they had curtains for privacy. Place was very clean. Great boutique hostel! 20 mins walk from main area of split.


Nice and clean hostel very close to the Split old town. Staff were friendly and dorm beds were private (a little curtain made it feel like cocoon). No kitchen and not much in the way of a common area (neither were a problem for me).


The staff were so friendly and helpful and made me feel like a guest rather than a customer. Lovely little hostel. I hope to return one day :)

The hostel was very clean and nice. The workers wee all super helpful and nice. It's outside the old town and a little further then I thought. Very small hostel and I was basically the only one there so no social aspect at all.


Very peaceful hostel. Not a party hostel.


perfect were cell beds with drape - private space


The staff was great, the (big) room was fantastic, spacious, and colourful and the beds private. Really enjoyed my time there!


I stayed this hostel one night in 5 mix dorm. Its clean and cozy but enough space in the room. Staff was so kind as well. It takes 10minutes to bus station and main view in the city on foot.
