I really enjoyed my stay at Split Backpackers hostel. The location was great and conveniently only a 10 min walk to the center, train station, and ferry port. The rooms were very nice and clean - came with free towels, linens. The staff was friendly and helpful as well. I would recommend staying at Split Backpackers

Excellent location, clean, and very friendly and helpful staff. My only issue would be that it is a lot of people crammed into a small space.
Excellent hostel, very clean and the staff is great.
Not a bad hostel, relatively standard, however, even though it has a kitchen, there is no hob, and therefore nothing to cook food on, which is a must for travellers in split, especially as it isn't cheap. Generally not bad.
Really close to the bus station and was clean and comfortable
The hostel is very easy to find now, they have a great big sign out the front so don't worry about that from the other reviews. The dorms are nice with lockers for backpacks only though, above the beds are personal lights with a power point. The location is great, took me 5mins from the bus station. Upon arriving the staff weren't the friendliest. There are only 2 showers for the whole hostel and only one female toilet
The only issue I had was that the door leading to the dorms was never locked. Staff were not there 24/7 so it was just the street door keeping people out. Other than that it was great, staff were awesome, location was ideal, and there were lockers big enough for all your luggage.
I have mixed feelings, firstly great location and some lovely staff. But I arrived a few hours before check in and was happy to just throw my bags down and come back later. I just asked for a recommendation of something to do and the staff were so rude to me and told me it was their time to clean. Which I appreciate but one suggesting in a nice way wouldnt be hard. Then on my 2nd night they had promised me a bed, yet after returning from a tour booked through them they had given my bed away.
I really enjoyed everything about this hostel. The only downside was the fact that other travelers weren't as sociable as I would have liked, which obviously is not to blame the hostel/staff for. The stove top didn't work, but we made do. Very close to the beach, the train station and the bus station!
Very nice staff and very clean and comfortable rooms!
Perfect hostel for our needs as backpackers. The atmosphere was great and the staff was helpful. Big lockers and free towels. I really liked that the beds had a little curtain for some privacy. A few minutes to the harbour and busstation. A little bit confusing that they have two hostels, but I would stay here again.
Perfect for solo travellers - awesome staff - would definitely return
Kara who is working there is very great! very sincere and helpful. Every bed comes with a curtain which gives a lil more privacy. Personal charging point and light for every bed. It also comes with a big locker which allows u to dump your whole backpack in. Toilets are clean, almost always vacant whenever I need to use them. Supermarket is just 2 mins walk away. Beach is within walking distant as well. Great location. Quiet hostel, I slept very well. thumbs up.
Hi Leo, its Charlie from the UK - do you remember me? The guy who felt like he was going to die from sickness on the top floor. I think I added my review in the wrong place - sorry about that. There is nothing else you can do to improve the place - keep up the great work
The hostel is located close to the port and bus/train station, and thereby only a short walk from the old town. I only stayed there for a night, but met some nice people, got rest (not a party hostel) and the staff was extremely helpful. Recommended!
This was a great place to stay, easy to find and good location. The shared room's bed's have curtains which make it seem much more private.
Really clean and good facilities!

Great location, very near to the center, the port, bus station, clubs, etc... Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, specially the guy from the night shift, he is great ! It's a small hostel so you manage to get to know everyone. The rooms are nice with individual curtains on the beds, but the bathrooms are really small. I would recommend is as a place to stay in Split !
Very good place to stay for few nights and very good staff with lot of useful insider information.!
The location is perfect, really close to Diocletian Palace and some bars and restaurants. Something I didn't like so much is the really tiny shower.. It was really small and so hard to change clothes inside it. Also the size of the room, is really small, it was hard to open my suitcase inside the room.
