Spend two nights with Josko and Ralph and you'll be family! Super awesome hostel! They are very very accomadating with everything you could possible think off in Split and the Croatian Islands. My girlfriend and I heard about split guest house through another traveller we met in Istanbul and decided to check it out. We were not disappointed. Even though hostel world said it was fully booked, we emailed them and Josko organised for us to stay with a close family friend who was amazing! Legendary!

We only stayed in Split for one night and instantly wished we had more time. Josko was an absolute gem and was more than welcoming upon arrival and accommodating throughout. He recommended a fantastic dinner spot- food, views and wine were absolutely phenomenal- and "must sees" for our short time there. You have to get Grandma's breakfast in the morning, it was amazing and a sizeable amount of food for a great price. We took advantage on the lift to the airport, which I also recommend.

Hostel owners are very friendly and personable. The level of service provided was incredible. The provided breakfest and dinner was delicious! The lakes trip organized through the guesthouse is amazing amd should not be missed!

We absolutely loved the Split guesthouse. The place itself wasn't that special but the atmosphere was something we've never experienced before in other hostels! The hostel owner Josko is the most welcoming and wonderful person you can imagine. If you're considering coming to Split, definitely choose this hostel!

It's hard to believe that Josko's is actually as amazing as everyone says, but it really is! Best hostel ever, it's so cozy and relaxed. I can't imagine Split without this guesthouse. It's impossible to tear yourself away and is a great place to relax in the middle (or beginning) of a hectic trip. Everyone stay here! And eat all of grandma's breakfast!! Also go to froggyland...

Very good atmosphere. Almost unevitable to meet nice new people because it's a small and cosy hostel. Good bed and locker. Josko made a free meal for all of us. I would go back!

This is one of the best hostels I have stayed at. Very great atmosphere, excellent for meeting new friends, and Josko is a fantastic host! Definitely would recommend the trip he offers to Plitvice Lakes national park.

This is my second time staying at split guesthouse and hostel and I would recommend it to everyone! Honestly wouldn't stay anywhere else in Split - one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. Josko goes above and beyond and will do whatever he can to make your stay special he is genuinely lovely. Also the lakes trip he runs is amazing and is definitely worth it! Thanks for another great stay josko hopefully I'll be back soon!

The Split Guesthouse was amazing! Josco is the man and will do whatever it takes to make your trip amazing. Breakfast in the morning is delicious, and Grandpa makes a fine drink! I definitely suggest staying here and I know I'll be back!

Josko is the best. This hostel is the best. Everyone you meet is the best. If you go to Split and you DON'T stay here, you're making a mistake. Also, if you do stay at this hostel (...you're remotely social/like making friends at all/meeting cool people, you have to stay at this hostel)…definitely try going on Josko's trip to Plitvice Lakes. It's a day trip and he makes it really fun :) plus you get to try some authentic Croatian food. Overall, an AMAZING place/host/time!

Right from the first moment I met Josko he was super friendly and made me feel so included. It was the first part of my trip that I was flying solo and Josko ensured we had a "family dinner" that night - got to meet the other people staying at the hostel and after some "grandpas water" (scary - but yes no hangover it's TRUE!) - great night(s). . DId the trip to Plitvice lakes with Josko and it was super fun, amazingly beautiful! Be prepared to get wet once you're there, but keep it on the DL ;)

Best hostel I've ever been to. The owner, Josko, is amazing! He gave us the best welcome. We had only booked one night, we wanted to stay and even if the hostel was full he worked something out and we stayed 2 more nights! That's what he does! And he organizes this AMAZING trip to Plitvice national park that you must do! Great facilities, great location, and best atmosphere!! Hvala Josko!

Pros: Joske is an brilliant and charismatic host who welcomes every guest, organises trips and even made dinner for everyone when I was there. There was a great easy-going atmosphere and everyone was talking with each other. Cons: my bed was a little uncomfortable and the single computer was super slow. Overall, stay here if you are someone who likes really social hostels.

Excellent small hostel. Josko is a great host and creates a very social and fun atmosphere. Even cooked for the guests on some nights! Good place to meet people. Trip to Plitvice Lakes national park and the Knin Fortress, runned by Josko, was amazing. Would definitely recommend.
