A small and personal hostel. Right next to the main promenade in Split and the Diocletian Palace. Staff is very helpful. If you are looking for a party hostel, this is not for you but if you are looking for a relaxed and peaceful time in Split, this is it.


This is an excellent hostel with a great location - very clean and large lockers with each bed in the dorms. Only negative is the kitchen is quite small and only a microwave and kettle are available for cooking.


The staff is really helpfull when it comes to informing about the city! Its really close to the main part of the city and to the habour/bus stop. Definitely worth a stay!


Stayed here for a night before doing Sail Croatia. The hostel is crazily easy to get to from the airport and super easy to get to the port to for your sailing trip. Staff are super friendly and it is super cheap! Close to Diocletian's Palace so plenty of things to eat around and parties to experience. The hostel is quite small as well so it's easy to meet new people! Recommended.


Highly recommend! The location is very convenient and close to everything and it is a clean, comfortable place to stay. The owner was a really cool interesting guy!


The owner and her staff really make this place great. Knowledgable about the ports, nightlife and restaurants.


Great place, great people. The location isn't very far from the bus stop which is nice and is pretty much in the center of everything. Would stay here again!


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.

Owner Comment (Hide)
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.
