Nice homey atmosphere. Josko is very helpful and energetic!
Loved Split! Could not have stayed at a better hostel; it was my favourite one in Croatia. Josko was wonderful, he made sure I had all of the information I needed to get around before I went off exploring, made sure I was comfortable and enjoyed myself. I have never stayed at a hostel where someone checks in with you daily, is interested in getting to know you and wants to make sure you have the best time possible while you are there. So much fun!. Thanks for the memorable stay! Much love!
Brilliant, Joško you're a fantastic host - created atmosphere in a small, tidy and well-equipped and personable hostel!
The best hostel experience yet! Josko is the perfect host, and made me feel welcome from the moment I arrived. Stay here for the homely atmosphere and if you like to socialise.
Excellent hostel for socialising and meeting other travellers. The owner was really friendly made us feel very welcome and was really helpful. The evening that we spent there the owner even cooked food for everyone staing there. Hostel was a little difficult to find if arriving in by car, so you will need to print off a map of the location and it was difficult to park near the hostel as it was close to the city centre
Booked 3 nights, stayed 9...You will love this place, its only small which gives it a great friendly vibe. Everyone gets together each night to eat and chat. Great for the solo traveler. 5min walk to the old town. Oh and have the breakfast, just do it!
Had an amazing time here, I miss it and our little family so much. Josko and family are so great and I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a fun time in a home away from home. Everybody stayed longer than they planned to.
The best vibes you could ever imagine. Josko is an amazing host, and me feel like I'm right at home. It's like one big family! This place is where you want to be.
All the reviews are so right, everyone extends their stay due to the fact Josko makes Split guesthouse a one of a kind experience! Never have I found such a family oriented atmosphere in a hostel! I was meant to stay 2 nights and I ended up staying 7! One of the highlights of my trip so far! I miss my split guesthouse family! Halloween 2013 will never be forgotten! Don't think twice, book this hostel. You won't regret it!
Amazing hostel. I have travelled a fair bit and this is the first time I ever extended my stay at a hostel. Free vodka and dinner when josko is in the mood to cook. Made loads of new friends and had a great time hanging out with them doing cliff jumping and basically just chilling around. Everyone's like family in the hostel, it's clean, comfortable, has great wifi, an epic host so don't hesitate to book it. Just be warned that it is likely that you will like your stay so much you will extend it

AMAZING HOSTEL! Josko is the greatest--I had the best time! Small hostel with a family feel to it. Made tons of new friends, spent most days cliff-jumping and swimming, and had way too much fun with the free Rakia! Small lockers for valuables, good kitchen, fast WiFi. Grandma's breakfast is soooo worth the money and Josko cooks dinner when he's feeling up to it! Definitely stay here--you'll never want to leave! I extended my stay by 2 nights. :)
Great place, great people, free raki, only bad thing about this place is how hard it is to leave
Split guesthouse and hostel made my stay in Croatia. I extended my stay and met many new interesting people and friends while there. It is a hostel I won't soon forget.

You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave!! After 16 years of travel I can honestly say Josko is as good as it gets when it comes to hostel owners! He really goes out if his way to make you feel welcome and part of the hostel! Just look at his reviews! Hes one of a kind! Thanks mate! Ill be back one day!
One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Josco ensures that your stay in Split is a memorable one. THE HOSTEL HAS A PET TORTOISE, WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT??!!
Welcoming, enjoyable, unique experience. Not a big hostel so you get to know everyone really well. The guy who runs it 'Josko' is an absolute legend. Can't say enough good things about this hostel. It's impossible not to have a good time!
There is nothing more to say besides - if You want a great experience, a lot of fun, a family feel and to have the most amazing time - stay here!!!
Had an amazing time at split guesthouse! Josko was the best host and had the best time in Europe! We booked initially for 2 nights and stayed 4! Couldn't recommend it more, will definitely be back for more rakija and good times
I can say without any reservation, that Split guesthouse is one of the best Hostels I have ever stayed at. Not only is the location fantastic, it's just set back from the mariner, the staff are excellent and make you feel like family from the moment you walk through the door. The cult of Josko is strong, but the dude lives up to the hype. Informative, funny and welcoming you'll never want to leave. I extended my stay twice! Met some great people here too. What are you waiting for, book now!
