Hostel quite good but the staff was not kind and usefull. It was like it was inexistent. One night a girl has sleep there without paying, so there is no control at all.


Staff were extremely friendly upon arrival... I was offered a tea and able to check in early. Location is fantastic; just outside the old town, 5 min walk to the port and buses, 10 min walk from the beach and main shopping area. Thoroughly recommended


Extremely hard to find. Walked around the area for 20 min. Had to go to another hostel to find it. Have to drag your bags up 4 flights of stairs. Staff not very friendly. No locks on doors. 1 shower for girls.


Nice enough. Nothing to write home about, but ticks all the essential boxes.


Good location and friendly staff. There was no kitchen though.


Very disappointed in this hostel. The staff were surly and beds were completely unmade without even pillowcases or base sheets put on. I've never come across that in a hostel before. The AC was insufficient for the size of the room we were in and the bunks had no ladders. We also had to walk through another room to get to ours which was very annoying. We had only booked one night, but if our stay had been longer we would have moved somewhere else. The bathrooms were below par too.


Location is superb. (5 mins walk from bus/train/ferry port) so very easy drop in and out.. You are in the Old town and only a few meters from the beautiful Old town 'Silver Gate' from which it takes it name. Everything you could want is minutes away Staff are friendly, helpful and polite (especially Katarina). Air con if it gets very hot (was 40C when I was in Split!) Bathrooms are good size and clean. Communal area with a few sofas/fridge and kettle. Would def come back again :)


Excellent location near to bus station and almost in the old town. Lovely & clean bedrooms & bathroom & friendly people :) (no kitchen though).


We just passed through Split so we only stayed one night. All we wanted was a place close to the ferries and the buses, which this was. It was really nice to stay at hostel that felt airy and had really modern and clean bathrooms. Big dorms with a lot of space. Really sweet girl at the reception who showed us around. Would really recommend this place.


everything ok except the reception is not all around when u ask something. difficult to contact.


Neat little place just off the port of split. Spacious rooms and very close to old town, restaurants and the market place is right outside your door! definitely worth staying here for a night or two especially on a budget or before you head off on a sail


Excellent location, very small hostel, caused a slightly flat atmosphere. Beds were comfy though some bunks were squeaky, good aircon as it was in a heatwave. Both the female staff members we're helpful, while the male member (s) left a lot to be desired. Security was good in our room with decent size lockers, however room next to us was essentially a corridor so very insecure.


Didn't feel safe as soon as we arrived. No locks on any of the doors, have to walk through one room to get to another! No head for the shower and shower was cold! Location was excellent.


There was air conditioning in the room which was great and the beds were comfy and the sheets clean. I arrived after the reception was closed and they emailed me the key code to open the door and instructions for which bed was mine. Overall great stay!


Expensive during Ultra Europe but it's expensive everywhere @ that time. Excellent hostel!

Only there for one night but the staff were lovely and it was in a great location


Very friendly staff and in a great location


Staff are very friendly, the wifi was reliable and facilities were clean and tidy. Turns out they have rooms scattered throughout the city because we ended up staying in a room 200m up from the actual hostel which we were not expecting and it was more of an apartment than a hostel but was perfect for us who just wanted a quiet night after a week of sail Croatia! Would recommend
