Great to meet people Great owner Definitely recommend !
Wonderful hostel! I was welcomed by the staff and guests alike! It was a small hostel but everyone was so friendly. The bathrooms were super nice and the beds were comfy and the wifi worked great! They offer homemade breakfast for a cheap price as well.
Definitely felt at home in this place. The atmosphere was amazing and for a small hostel it has it all. The top bunks can be tricky to climb into, though. Would for sure stay again.
Thanks Josko, we had an amazing time! Regards, Tomas
Josko is the most amazing host I could've ever asked for! The trip he planned to Plitvice Lakes and to the football game were the highlights of my trip! The atmosphere of the hostel was amazing! Also, grandma's breakfast helped me get every morning started! Will definitely be going back just to hang out here!!

Really awesome place. Just really comfortable and chill but can get noisy. Josko makes it his mission th a time everybody knows everybody which gives the place a really comfy feeling. Definitely the place to stay in Split
Josko is absolutely amazing, there to help with whatever you need, goes above and beyond to make sure you are having a great time and making the most out of your time in Split! Facilities are great, showers are hot, this is definitely the place to stay if you are visiting Split.
Josko was so awesome! He picked us up from the airport and he and his daughters cooked us dinner. The atmosphere was so awesome, we met a bunch of people and ate dinner with all of them. The hostel is walking distance from everything. We loved this place and we will stay here again when we come back. I highly recommend.
This hostel is a great place to stay if you enjoy meeting peole on your travels! Josko is so friendly and energetic, it's easy to see why the guesthouse is so popular. Clean, homey, and friendly, Split Guesthouse is great for socializing and hanging out with other travelers. His two very cute daughters helped prepare a satisfying dinner, and Grandma's breakfast was cheap and very good. No complaints about our stay!
Josko definitely has an awesome hostel! Already recommended Split Guesthouse & Hostel to everyone we met in Dubrovnik. ;) Thanks for a lovely stay! And btw, to all other travellers leaving from Split by bus: IF the cashier at the bus station says that theres no room in that specific bus youre trying to get in, go straight to the bus and buy the ticket from the driver - its the same price and theres most likely plenty of free seats in the bus! Dont get fooled by the clerks at the ticket desk! ;)
Josko does a really excellent job at making his guests feel comfortable and at home. You should absolutely go on the day trip offered to plitvice lakes national park. However, lunch is included in the price and isn't very good. Especially if you have any dietary restrictions so I would probably recommend opting out and packing your own. The hostel is a 20 minute walk from the station, load the address in maps as directions given arent very clear Wifi works well and breakfast was really good
Split Guesthouse and Hostel is one of (if not the best) hostel I've ever been to. Josko makes sure every guest feels at home and like a family. A great place to make friends and have the best breakfast made by Grandma for only €3 (25 kuna). Location was easy to find and close to everything. There's even a day trip to the Plitvice Lakes. Thanks Josko!
A really fun and friendly small hostel. Only 12 beds, a kitchen and big table, but it really works, and everybody makes friends easily and hangs out. As everyone says, Josko (the owner and only staff member!) is great, super friendly and helpful, and very keen to make sure you have a good time. His mum-in-law comes in the morning to make an awesome breakfast, definitely try it! Short walk into the centre (which is small, and very nice) and to bus/train/port. Spacious, comfy dorms, good kitchen.
Decent breakfast for 25 kuna. Josko is very friendly and helpful with giving an intro and directions. The room was spacious but the top bunks require you to climb up there without a ladder. And there's no rail so if you're someone who rolls in your sleep you better be ok with a 5 foot fall to the ground. Only one full washroom for all men in the hostel so if someone is showering you can't brush your teeth.... pretty inconvenient when you're in a rush. Otherwise location is better than most.
Staff as friendly and helpful as they come.
Very nice stay at split guesthouse ! Easy to meet new people with whom you can spent your stay there. Great host, Josko is full of energy and ready to help you if you have any questions. Cheap and good breakfast in the morning prepared by Grandma! The only things it is the shower, it is broken but its a little detail ! If you wanna have fun and spend a nice stay in Split, It is the place to go !
Josko is legend. He fosters community among his guests like no other host. If you're traveling by yourself, or are with a small group open to making new friends, you must stay here-- if you can get a bed!
Everyone loves this place, and with good reason. The reputation is well deserved.
Split Guesthouse is simply the best hostel I've ever stayed at. The atmosphere is fun and friendly, and Josko is the best host you'll ever have. Can't recommend it enough.
