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

Hi M, thank you for leaving a review for us. Usually i dont reply but i do have a need today. First, restaurant has at least 8 different meals that you can choose from and it would be nice of you to tell me if something was wrong with your meal while we were there. Second, directions are clear as it gets as you were given a map with the marked way up to the hostel. Third, security is based on 3 locked doors and a locker so what more do one need.

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.

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!

The best hostel I have stayed in through all my European Travels! Truly a home away from home and Josko is the most wonderful host, he truly went above and beyond to make my stay as convenient and as fun as possible!

Best hostel hands down during my trip through europe a solo traveler. Small and intimate space makes meeting and partying with people extremely easy. Owner is a boss. He trusts his guests and gives travelers space to do what they want and explore with their fellow travelers while also being there for questions and everything. A welcome shot, and many many free complimentary shots make this place the easiest place to have the best nights of your life (yes, you heard right, many many free shots).

Great place. Not for everyone. If you want a place that will greet you with a shot and a group that will go out and get drunk with you, this is the place. If you're looking for somewhere quieter to just pass out at the end of the day, this isn't the place. That being said, if you want a party in Split, there's no better place to stay.

I had an amazing time here. Josko was an incredible host that really puts an emphasis on making sure people have fun by making sure that everyone gets to know everyone. If you are looking for a quiet hostel, this may not be the place for you, but if you like a drink or two, and like to have fun and party, I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Thanks Josko, you were brilliant!

Best hostel I've been to by far! The owner, Josko, treats all of his guests like a family. He takes his guests on an amazing trip to the Plitvice lakes, a castle where Game of Thrones was filmed, and one of the best restaurants in Croatia for a very affordable price. Not to mention he is very knowledgeable about Croatia and is always there to give suggestions for restaurants and places to go.
