Clean Hostel, colourful doors, comfy beds and sofa. Friendly staff and Ervin (the guy with the moustache) was really helpful and friendly and he had an answer for each question, didn't matter what was it regarding to. Will definitely go back to Silver Gate. Thank you. Botond

A really comfortable hostel next to one of the gates to the old town. The guy at the reception seemed a little bit grumpy but you quickly forget that considering this awesome location and living room feeling you get in the hostel. Good hostel. Bear in mind that that two of the dorms are connected and if that is a problem for you.


Excellent location. Clean sheets, lockers in each room. One female shower not really enough for three dorm rooms! Fridge, kettle, plates, cups and cutlery but no microwave or stove.


Erwin, the man who worked there, was extremely rude, we arrived at the hostel and didn't even receive a hello. "You pay now" was the first thing he said. The female member of staff was helpful and nice though. No locks on dorm doors. Lockers were too small for normal traveler backpacks in. Atmosphere was poor due to feeling unwelcome. Only good thing is it's in the centre.


Great location. Security good. Erwin is great. Atmosphere and cleanliness average but mainly due to the people currently in the hostel. Average facilities but for the price I would definitely recommend.


Location amazing. BF & I had the double room in the apartment 2mins up the road w/an amazing view of the bell tower/ocean/market. No one is working @ the hostel until 9am, so if you take the ferry from Ancona you have to wait outside for 2hrs which sucks. The apartment w/private rooms is cleaned daily, &the kitchen has limited supplies (pots/pans etc) but good for basic meals. Great deal for the money with a double room, especially since it was basically a hotel.


The location of the property is great and it was fairly quiet for being so central. The staff weren't very forthcoming with information and when I asked about the ferries to Hvar, I was told to check at the ferry port for the times. There was no hot water in the girls shower when I was there and the shower head wasn't working properly. Otherwise, it was clean and comfortable.


I enjoyed my stay here. The shower was unfortunately blocked and i had to stand in a puddle of dirty shower water. a small hostel in a great location, perfect for my time in Split. unfortunately no cooking faciilities, and i left some food in the fridge, with my checkout date, and it went missing...?!
