Damn, it was such an amazing experience. Everything is just perfect, cozy and the people who happened to be there were just as amazing. The hosts are awesome and my roomies were out of this world! I can't wait to come back to croatia and to the hostel. Best experience ever. Luis

Old Town Hostel is amazing! Perfect location, great facilities, and of course, Dora is an absolute delight. Incredibly helpful and fun, she made my stay truly enjoyable! Don't stay anywhere else!


It's a fairly small hostel (4 rooms total) which makes it super easy to meet people! The staff were super friendly and helpful and I had s great time as a solo traveler :) they provide towels for you, just FYI!


nice small hostel. great kitchen and common area. everyone gets together and there is a good atmosphere for solo travellers. place is a little tough to find - note the instructions on hostelworld.


Nice Hostel in perfect location in the old town of Split.


Hands down it is the place to stay in split! Dora is a pro. She's a backpacker at heart won't bore you with things you don't need will realise in minutes what you're looking for and serve with information according to that. The hostel is a pro. Go to Charlie's . What else is there to say?

Very cozy, fun, homey vibe


Slightly pricey but it makes sense since it's within the walls of the palace. The 8-bed dorm was slightly cramped and there was limited power sockets. I guess being in the palace grounds means limited space and high prices? Staff were helpful, washrooms were clean. There was a kitchen too but didn't use it though other guests seemed to have no problem with it. A good enough place to sleep at but not so much to just hang out at which may not be an issue considering how interesting Split is


Difficult to find, but great location with arranged evening socials. Good for solo travelers.


Really good hostel in a great location in Old Town. Owner and staff were really cool and helpful. Smaller hostel but still really fun and easy to meet other travelers. Staff organizes a dinner amongst other hostels as well as shows you how to get on the pub crawl. Would definitely come back and stay.


I would highly recommend this hostel to other travellers. There is a really good atmosphere here, it's social and easy to meet other people. Everything was kept very clean and it's right in the heart of Old Town. Dora is very helpful and can answer any questions you have.


I had a great stay here! Dora is e trembly helpful and friendly. The facilities are also very clean. The only downside is the rooms are very small, so you don't have much room to move around but not too big of an issue since you're never there.


It's quite hard to find the hostel in the first time, would be good to have better indications in the reservation.


Brilliant little place in the heart of the old town. Dora and Steve are awesome hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Cool little chill out area and the rooms are clean and nice. I went on a trip to some of the islands and left my bag in reception for a few nights which was no problem at all. Would stay here again.


Excellent, clean, cozy place. Small (maybe not even 20 people there) but atmosphere is good with kitchen and common room. Location is very good (in Dalmatian palace). Only 2 bathrooms can be a problem, but it was ok when I was there.


Superb and magical location within palace walls at amazingly good price. Lovely little kitchen to eat and cook in. Colourful and bright rooms, very cheery and pretty. Lots of space in rooms and air condiitoner which is essential! Great common room and two big bathrooms. More like staying in a house! Perfectly located and near everything in palace and old town of split. Would have liked a bit more info/guidance from staff when we arrived but nevertheless loved it and would stay here again


Great location and amzing staff. Clean and friendly, I wouldn't stay anywhere else and would love to go back. Plus Dora is very cool.


Old town hostel is great! The location is excellent, kitchen has everything you need and the common room always had people hanging out. Only downside is that there are only two bathrooms with one shower in each of them to facilitate roughly 20-25 people. I would definitely stay here again!!

Hi, thank you for the positive feedback, we are glad you had a good stay! :) Just to clarify, the hostel sleeps 18 people max (we agree, the lack of bathrooms can still be an inconvenience during 'shower hour' in the morning). Was great having you and hope to have you again some time! Dora & the OTH team


Really well located within Diocletian's palace. The facilities were good (good shower) and the staff arranged activities to take folks out in the evening to dinner/ drinks.


Lovely hostel in an amazing location. You are right in the heart of the old town, in Diocletian's Palace! The staff were very friendly, happy to help. Very nice room and all very clean.
