A nice, basic hostel with a great location and friendly, helpful staff. Guest pretty much have free reign of the place after-hours since the staff head home after 11 or something so if you're an older, comfort traveler I probably wouldn't recommend. However if you're a young backpacker who has seen a enough hostels before to know what to expect, it aint bad..

Awesome location! You will get lost on the way, but once you get there you won't regret! I remember that when i arrived there a very nice smell and nice music on! Perfect.

The staff here were incredible. Helpful at every single opportunity, providing all of the guests a homely atmosphere. Not to mention that we all had a really fun time going out as well. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying in Split from age 18 to 30.

My friend and I stayed here for my night. The location is just outside the main square, located on top of a beautiful hill overlooking the city. It is very close to the beach. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Definately the best hostel I stayed in during my time abroad. I reccomend staying here if you are looking for a relaxing vacation experience!

Staff was great especially the girl who ran the place (sorry forgot the name!). Nice showers, cute decor, really good air con! Lockers a decent size and not that difficult to find if you use the directions they provide for you.

Awesome location right in the centre of the old town! Stayed in a private room and the double bed was very big and comfy! Very clean hostel. Staff were extremely helpful with giving recommendations and organising transfers to the airport. Highly recommend!

I was travelling alone but had friends staying at another hostel so I didn't actually spend too much time and Old Town Hostel. Super friendly staff though and the place was clean enough. Reception isn't 24 hours which would have been difficult if I'd arrived late at night.

I wanted to like this hostel but in a series of events this place left a lot to be desired. Cold showers on the regular. Terribly frustrating locks on the front door. Took several attempts each night to get in....The hostel is very small with hardly to no atmosphere to it. This hostel is manageable especially if you only plan to spend one night and island hop. But if you're like me and stayed a few nights in Split, I'd look elsewhere. Redeeming value of this place is that the staff is nice.

Hi Eric, We are sorry you didn't have a great stay. We agree, the showers can sometimes run out of cold water during peak season, especially during the 'shower hour'. The lock on the front door is a standard European lock, we offer to demonstrate how to unlock it if people are struggling. Regarding atmosphere, there are nightly 'dinner dates' and/or drinking games organized and run by our staffers, we regret you missing out on those. Happy travels, the OTH team

Exceptional location and very helpful and friendly staff. Nice kitchen but few bathrooms means you have to wait a fair bit. Rooms aren't big but they have big lockers to store your stuff. Shame about the uncomfortable mattress, though. Overall a good cosy hostel.

I've stayed at 50+ hostels in my lifetime and Old Town Hostel Split was far and away the best. Friendly, helpful and cool staff, unbeatable location, incredibly clean. Would recommend this place to anyone one passing through Croatia.

I loved this hostel! The staff is amazing, super friendly, and hang out with the guests and help organize dinners out or pub crawls. They provide great advice about things to see and do around Split, and even helped me get a catamaran to Hvar. This all contributes to an awesome atmosphere, and I think it rubs off on the guests because everyone is so friendly and inviting! Great place to meet people. Hostel has kitchen, hang out room, and is quite clean. 100% recommend. Iris is also awesome.
