There's a reason Split Guesthouse is the best rated hostel in Split. It's simply amazing. My whole travel experience peaked when I stayed at this place. It made my trip unforgettable. If you have a single place you should stay in Europe, it's here. Josko is incredibly welcoming, makes you feel like you're part of the family, shows you around and gives you the best recommendations on what to do in town. To do: Josko's trip to the lakes, grandma's breakfast, vodka night. 5 stars all around.
Josko made it his business to introduce me to everybody in the hostel when I arrived. He made everyone feel welcome. Grandma's breakfasts are also good value for money. Could not recommend it more.
Had an amazing time at Split Guesthouse and Hostel. The owner Josko is such a character and you cant help but be happy when he's around. First night we arrived there was free vodka for everyone staying there and we were also lucky enough to get dinner cooked for us not once but twice. The day trip to the lakes has been on of the highlights of our trip and the swimming (trespassing) was amazing. Thanks for an amazing stay Kristy and Tom :)
I only bother giving reviews if I really whish to recommend a hostel. So Split Guesthouse & Hostel is a very special place thanks to his owner Josko. He really makes every guest feel so wellcome by simply and truely caring. He is happy to help in whatsoever difficulty can come across your way and will figure out a solution for you. He brings people together and also has great inside knowlege of Split and Plitvicka lakes different from anything else you could get. Cheers to you Josko, Frank :-)
one of my favourite hostels i've stayed in, the best staff, wish i could've stayed for longer!!
We had an amazing time at this hostel and made some great friends along the way! Josko cooked us all a free meal on our first night and threw a free vodka party on another night! Grandmas breakfast was the best hangover cure! We hope to visit again! Thank you josko, Barry
What can I say, this was a perfect hostel! The owner, Josko treats everyone as a friend which made the hostel atmosphere even better. The location in split is also very convenient, you can walk everywhere. Can't say how much i recommend this hostel.
The host is really a passionate guy and treat us like friends. It is a definitely a good choice if you need any advice at Split or nearby cities. The location is good around 10 minutes walking and it's like an apartment with an atmosphere like home! Really recommend!
WE LOVED THIS HOSTEL!!! Josko makes you feel at home as soon as you step in the door, and it's such a laid back atmosphere that everyone feels at ease to talk to each other straight away. On our first night we were given dinner and alcohol, it felt like a big family dinner. Will definitely stay at this hostel again and could not recommend it more. Also, do the Tower Pub Crawl- it was hectic.
The Guesthouse was awesome! Josko knew everything you could possibly want or need to know about Split and was an all round awesome host, cooking us dinner and taking us on a day trip to The Lakes. Would definitely recommend! And the pub crawl on a Friday night is epic! ;)
Best hostel owner ever! thanks for everything josko. Great hostel!
An hostel that lives up to it's reputation! Great atmosphere, no pb with security (we slept in a 6 persons bedroom but had lockers), perfect location. Of course, great host, gave loads of advices, very helpfull. Shame all hostels are not like this one;)
When I read the ratings of this place I thought they must be fake- but it is actually that good. Josko and his family were amazing, so welcoming. Exactly what you need after a while on the road. Like a super fun home away from home. If your in split there's nowhere else to stay!

I only stayed the one night unfortunately but what a way to kick off my 10 days in Croatia! Roped into a pub crawl within an hour of arriving and met some great new people straight away. Fun, clean, and the host and owner Josko was incredibly helpful and accommodating. Will be back when am next in Split! One of my favourite hostels in Europe. Very secure and the location was good - approximately 15-20min walk to the historical centre.
This hostel has the best atmosphere out of any hostel I've ever stayed at!!! Josko is the man, he's so hilarious and he goes out of his way to make sure everyone is having a good time and meeting people. He cooks an awesome dinner and Grandma's breakfast is AMAZING. Good facilities, good location, amazing hostel!! Definitely staying here again.
What a great place to stay. your host will help you out in every way possible. we even had grandma in to cook breakfast. really good atmosphere and he'll even let you sleep under the stars!!
Josko is an amazing owner... Free vodka every night. The breakfast is amazing. Ralph is the cutest pet ever. The atmosphere here is really good- something going on every night. Josko even cooked everyone dinner one night.
