Split backpackers was an awesome place to stay, staff were super friendly and helpful. You can organise your tours through them. Had a great time here and mets some really cool people. Would highly recommend bonus if bring so close to everything you need
I suppose for a group of young travellers wanting to drink, this place might be OK, however not very good as a solo traveller. No atmosphere, and no great communal space for meeting people. The girl I met on reception when I got there was nice, however the male member of staff on the night shift was VERY rude to me when I was ill. The air con made the room comfortable, but I am glad I was there only one night. I wouldn't recommend for solo travellers.
We got an apartment which was very well priced given how nice it was!
We were only here for a night as we were going on a sail in the morning but it was a great place, really comfortable and homey. Staff were really helpful, great location so close to everything. Had a great nights sleep and a great shower. Very cheap too!
Hostel was in a good location. I arrived very early and they managed to check me in before 1pm which I really appreciated. Air conditioned room was amazing, large lockers and big rooms. Power points at each bed and lamps. The common area was very small and it was the kitchen. Wifi was good, no breakfast included, and only two showers and one toilet for entire hostel. Would probably stay again but not for tool long.
Best location in Split by far! Few minutes walk from bus station, ferry terminal and into old town. Staff extremely friendly and give great explanation of how to get around split and what to do!! Hostel itself is a smaller hostel yet has decent sized rooms and amazing aircon! Bathrooms and showers very clean. Would definately stay here again as its great value for money for location and hostel itself.
Our beds were comfortable & clean, the bathrooms also clean. There is a fridge & sink, bowls, plates & cutlery, but no stove, so just be prepared to not be able to cook much more than noodles & cereal etc. Staff recommended a good restaurant (Buffet Fife), & while its a 10 min walk along the harbour, meals are fairly cheap & portion sizes very decent. They are also incredibly quick to serve meals. Supermarket is 100m away. Staff were quite friendly and I would stay here again.
The stay was generally good and the staff was really helpful and friendly. We was facing problem with our luggage and they helped us to solve it. The only downside was that the wifi was not stable, it kept disconnecting. Otherwise, the toilets are clean and the room was comfy.
Had such a lovely time, wish I could have stayed even longer. The staff are so helpful and friendly, would 100% come back and highly recommend it to others! Thanks for a great stay

Good stay, great price, good location. Highly recommend.
Perfect location, room doors don't lock, but building does and big lockers to lock valuables , computer to use beds comfortable
Split backpackers is well located near all forms of transport (ferries etc). It's clean, has giant lockers for your bag and the staff were nice and helpful. The kitchen isn't a full kitchen but it has a fridge to store food. My only complaint would be that one of the showers didn't really work due to a leak in the pipe. Other than that I had a nice stay there. Well worth the money
Very nice helpful staff. Bare-bones kind of hostel, but pleasant enough and cheap.
This would have been a great hostel for a group staying in a dorm, as it was a short walk to the city and close to supermarkets, bakeries, the market and a pharmacy. However as a couple I would not recommend it. The double room is quite small and only about 2 meters away from the front desk, and you can hear everything (and they can probably hear you)!! Very noisy group in the room next door, didn't get much sleep :(
Myself and my friend were fresh off yacht week, the staff were very friendly and let us come early to Drop our bags, they also gave us out beds early because we were exhausted which was very nice of them! Clean, good atmosphere, good wifi would totally reccomend

When I tried to pay they told me that the deposit I had paid on the Hostelworld website does not count towards my bill because the deposit goes to Hostelworld, not the accommodation. So I ended up having to pay the deposit amount twice. I have since inquired with Hostelworld and they have informed me that this is incorrect and I should not have been charged the deposit amount again. Seems like the accommodation should know this well by now and are just being dishonest to try and get extra money.
The kitchen was not very well equipped, there was no oven or stove, only a microwave oven. The hostel was very clean and a special thanks for very comfortable beds! Had a good night sleep here, would recommend :)
Me and my friends stayed 3 nights and it was the perfect location and very calm amd quiet. It's not the party hostel however you cam easily find pub crawl in the city. I would definitely come back.
