I enjoyed my stay here. Everyone was really friendly and it is in a convenient location on top of that. No complaints about the place.


Had a great stay. Well located hostel, comfortable, wifi, helpful staff- all you could ask for!


kettle+ 2 mugs would be VERY useful in the delux double bed private room


i arrive in split in the early morning and the hostel just open at 9 am.so i have to wait more than 3 hours.But anyway its good hostel to stay.


Extremely helpful staff and a great location! Clean rooms and facilities. The common area is a great place to meet fellow travelers before heading out to explore and dominate the town of Split. From the hostel Old Town is literally two minutes walk. More importantly, about a minute from bakeries that never close. Nothing like baked food at 4AM on the way back from clubs. Beaches very close by as well. Met other hostellers and Split Backpackers definitely seems like the best place to stay.


We stayed in the private room with the ensuite which was really nice. The staff here at the hostel were very good too. What lets this place down is the kitchen/common room. No stove or oven...this is really limiting. Also that room isn't very inviting for groups to hang out it so it's not a very social atmosphere.

Dear Guest, I`m glad that you liked our room and the hostel in general but i do not see the point in this remark regarding the stove or kitchen, since we never had an kitchen or stove or oven. If in our description of the hostel facilities it says no kitchen or no stove that means no kitchen and no stove since there is an good reason for that. Regarding the atmosphere it is off season in Split and during your stay it was only 8 people max so it is hard to expect big crowd.


Very very friendly stuff. Good atmosphere. Great location and clean bathrooms. A good place to stay in Split.

Thank you Shutian! All the best!Tea


Great location and extremely helpful staff. Unfortunately, the heat was not overly effective, so it was very cold in the dorm.


The room smelled really bad and when I tried to use have some of the stuff that is for free, there wasn't any.

Thank you for your sincere review. We clean rooms and all hostel areas daily, but we can not take responsibility for people who are in the room temporally, and if they closed the window that we keep opened during day for fresh air. Concerning free stuff, we provide coffee and tea, and we we take care that we always have them.
