This place was in a great location!!!! Pretty crowded rooms but not too bad. Some staff were terrific then there were others not so much.. Good little kitchen and lounge room area to meet people


Amazing location and good kitchen facilities.


The location is great. Everything else needs a little work.


Great place to stay. Lots of Australians.


Staying here was like hanging out at someone's apartment, and the hostel just had a very social atmosphere. The hostel has a laid-back and chill personality to match Split itself, and meeting people was very easy in the common area and kitchen. The bathrooms are pretty clean, as are the rooms and each person has their own locker. Situated right in the heart of the old town, the location doesn't get any better either, Definitely stay at Old Town Hostel if you are in Split!


We were only in Split for 1 night. The hostel has a fantastic location in the old town and the staff was very friendly/helpful. Unfortunately, there was an over-booking and my friend came home at night to find his bed had been taken...problem was easily fixed and we had a fine stay overall.


Very small hostel, for short stay is fine and in the old part of town which is great to explore by foot.


Can't fault hostel on anything! Everything was great ! Your right in the city centre walking distance to everything. The showers are always warm and great. The staff are really friendly, would stay here again for sure.


A few points - staff were very helpful. Only 2 bathrooms for 18 ppl if full so you need to wait. There isn't a separate toilet. Floor towel should be replaced every day so it doesn't smell. Kitchen sink was quite often full of dishes. Kettle needs replacing. Kitchen floor needs mopping every day. Very small rooms when it's full but overall a pretty good place. Also there's no elevator like a lot of these old classic buildings.


Great homey feel, staff willing to hang out and take you to the best night spots. Right in the old town, within the palace walls.


Perfect for what I needed.


Great location, staff was extremely helpful and friendly!


Great lounge to chill out in, great friendly staff. Fantastic for solo travellers. The location is Perfect!


We really enjoyed our stay here! I wish we would have had more time here, Jack was awesome when we there ! He really made us feel welcome and took us out with another hostel a couple times which was awesome. The hostel staff are really good for ideas on where to eat and where to go out at night! The tour of the palace that they advertise in their hostel is so good, our tour guide was funny and super knowledgable! If I ever go back to Split I'll definitely be back

Very good air conditioning in rooms. Staff was very helpful and the location was great. Not a very social hostel so it is harder for a single traveler to make friends.


The location in the old city is very good but there is not lift and there are many stairs to get to the hostel.

Hi, if you had read our description carefully prior to booking, you would have seen that we state the hostel is on the third floor and there is no elevator. Please read the entire description and the 'important' section before booking! Peace, love & happy travels, the OTH team


Love this hostel: the atmosphere, the staff and location. I strongly recommend it.


Great hostel.


nice hostel!


Could not ask for a better location, right in the heart of old town! Staff went above and beyond to be helpful, super social atmosphere which was great as a solo traveller. The only thing was the relative lack of bathrooms.
