Very nice rooms and bathrooms. Spacious common area and kitchen. Super friendly and knowledgable staff, very helpful - the woman who seemed to run the place spent a long time calling other hostels to help us find new accommodation for the next night and gave us lots of tips for our trip to the islands.


Great hostel, prob could do with a better common room in terms of utensils. Staff where very helpful though.


Nice small hostel, staff very helpful and friendly and easy to chat to other guests. Slight security issue as woke up with a strange man in our room! Doesn't have a full kitchen which is a bit of an issue if you are on a budget as split is quite expensive.


Good hostel if you want to stay in split somewhere near the shopping streets. Most of the hostel was clean but no common area took down the atmosphere. I recommend this hostel if you want to stay one night but otherwise it's better to rent an own apartment for less money than a dorm. Also, I rekomend the staff to not talk freely in Croatian (especially about the guests). I'm multi lingual and was not pleased to hear what the cleaning ladies were saying.


This hostel is noisy because all rooms are positioned around the common room and the cleanliness isn't up to scratch. great location and friendly staff however.


Loved loved loved this hostel, absolutely smashing atmosphere with a real family feel. Door code for entry meant you could come and go as you pleased and because there wasn't someone on reception overnight it felt more like it was your own house and you could be as noisy (and pissed) as you wished. Really friendly staff, no kitchen but there were the basics so it wasn't a problem. Would 100% recommend.


Very well located near the old town and not far from the beach


Amazing location, great staff, comfy beds...what more could you ask for? We had a fantastic stay during the weekend of Ultra Music Festival and I would definitely stay here again. Clean and bright bedrooms with fast internet. I would definitely stay here again.


Rooms were large with lockers, air con and wifi. Having read the reviews before hand some people complained that there were no locks on the doors, but it really wasn't an issue. Super location, close to everything! Bathrooms were only cleaned once in the morning and the sinks could have used a wipe by the end of the day. The showers don't drain well, and if it was busy there was often no hot water left. Not a huge deal because it's so hot anyway. Staff were helpful.

A good template for what a hostel should be. Good location, comfy beds, chill atmosphere, and strong internet. Had a nice stay.


If service and location are the primary characteristics of a good hostel then the Silver Central Hostel deserves praise.The staff were excellent in their information and advice.Always accommodating and eager to assist in every aspect of our stay made our visit to magnificent Split very easy. Location cannot be faltered.Dorm rooms are clean and comfortable and The 1 bedroom apartment was good value.


Nice and helpful staff, the guy took us out one night and we had a great party! Walking distance to bus/ferry (even with a heavy bag). There's unfortunately no kitchen, otherwise it would have been perfect.


Great hostel, excellent location in the heart of city (you can walk to nearby tourist attractions, restaurant, shopping, bus, train and ferry station), staff is very friendly and helpful, helped with any question I had. I was given recommendations on where to eat, go out and attractions to see. Spacious and welcoming rooms with air condition, clean common area and bathrooms! Free computers to use and wifi available throughout the hostel. Will definitely stay again!


Overall the hostel was fine, just lacking in atmosphere. We were there out of high season, but it did seem exceptionally quiet. Some of the staff were friendly and helpful, but some less so.


We rented the apartment for 2. It was a big apartment right in the centre of the city. a friendly staff who walked us to the apartment. There ware free to see DVDmovies in the hostel, we could take a couple to our apartment. Only downsite was that you could hear everything from the streets (so the windows are not thick)

The staff was friendly and made good suggestions. Our private room was large, clean, and the bed comfortable. A good value, and actually one of our favorites on a 3 week trip through Franc Italy, Croatia.

Very nice hostel but didnt have a kitchen or room locks


Good location and the first check-in staff member was okay but the next morning we were confused with another party and asked to pay for a 3rd person we did not have in our group of 2. The staff member was quite rude and never asked our names. I also found the cleaner quite rude and there was a problem with the showers/toilets in the morning and people could not use them though still expected to leave at the same check-out time.


good hostel. Excellent location.. Friendly staff.. Close to the action.. Good atmosphere for meeting people.. Yet quite to sleep.. I stayed here twice during my time in Croatia and would stay again.. Cheers


Compact little place, clean enough and located well. Overall Ok but not amazing, I might stay again but tempted to explore a different hostel. Didn't tell them when I was there but when you read this you can check it out, your aircon in room 2 makes a racket every 30min as if there is a loose pipe vibrating when compressor or fan fires up, needs to be secured or tied.
