Perfect location, room doors don't lock, but building does and big lockers to lock valuables , computer to use beds comfortable


Good budget hostel.


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.

Hi there, as soon I saw your remark I immediately checked your reservation and I need to inform you that you paid only the balance due plus city tax of 21 kuna. I understand that you are angry but let me explain you that we charge you only your balance due plus city tax which is 7kuna or around 1€ per person per night. We amend the deposit for hostelword and you only pay the remaining balance due on arrival and plus the city tax. Please check on our site that city tax is not included.


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 :)

1st we do not have the kitchen. 2nd we never say that we have kitchen or that we advertise it like that. 3rd Your lets say "kitchen" was actually the common area of the Hostel so the remark about not having the stove or oven is meaningless. I wish that you asked us what is the reason of not having the kitchen since there is a good reason for that and this missunderstanding will be avoided.


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.


The staff were really friendly and chatty and were nice enough to let us stay for a bit longer when we came back to get our luggage since we were a bit too early to catch the ferry. Also, they made good recommendations for meals!

It's close to the bus/ferry but a bit out of town. Not a very social hostel. People in my room didn't lock the door but luckily we had lockers. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Wifi worked well. Showers were hot and clean.


Super friendly and helpful staff. Small kitchen to socialize in. Fantastic location near bus station and city centre. Supermarkets close by. Beds are ok. Rooms have balconies. Only 2 toilets and showers for whole hostel, definitely not enough.


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.
