Property Description

Al's is conveniently located on the main backpacker street in Split. Opened by a British adventurer back in 2004, it was Split's first backpacker hostel. Through the years, the area grew into a vibrant travelers' nerve center, with bars, cafes, restaurants and travel agencies. You can sample mouthwatering local food at Villa Spiza, meet fellow travellers at Charlie's Backpackers Bar, or sip delicious cocktails and craft beers at Sanctuary – without ever leaving the street.

Diocletian's Palace and other main attractions are all within a stone's throw. The main bus/train/ferry hub is a 15 minute walk away, as is the closest beach.

The hostel has two dorms, each with its own bathroom, lockers, and air conditioning. The facilities include a kitchen, free towels, and wifi. It's a small, simple and laidback hostel with a relaxed vibe, conducive to meeting other travelers. Our staff and volunteers are always at your service, ready to help plan your days in Split or travels to the next destination, as well as taking groups out sometimes for dinners, drinks and nights out.

If you're looking for an affordable, safe, comfortable and fun place where you’ll feel at home whilst exploring Split and the area, this is the place!

    Highlight of our backpacking trip! Best hostel experience my brother & I have ever had. Right when we arrived Lee & Paula set the positive mood for the rest of our Croatia trip. The most kind & welcoming hosts we’ve ever encountered, absolute angels. They inform you on the best local food, sightseeing, nightclubs & history of Split. They go through lengths to make sure your stay is as comfortable as ever. Excellent location, sparkling clean & friendly. It really doesn’t get any better.

    The entire staff in the hostel is extremely kind and friendly. They have excellent hospitality and gave me many recommendations on places to eat and things to see. The only issue was the street right outside is a party up until midnight which is not that bad unless you wanted to sleep earlier than midnight. The hostel was clean and in the old city which is a super great location. I highly recommend staying here!

    paula and lee are two of the nicest humans ive ever met, they are so welcoming and friendly and make the stay there so great! They help you organise events and unite the dorms, if we hadnt had them we would not have known what to do in split! The beds are comfy, the bathrooms are clean, if you want a fully warm shower dont be the 3rd or 4th person as you risk the hot water running out. Best location for everything could not recommend the stay here more, will be back!!!

    This hostel was in great location, right in the center. The hosts Paula and Lee were very friendly and helpful, they even organized a social event for all hostel guests. The atmosphere was very welcoming! Perfect hostel for people traveling alone. The room was clean and temperature was perfect during nights. I spent there 3 days and had great time in Split.

    Location was absolutely perfect- right in the middle of old town! It was a really small hostel with only 2 dorms so had a really friendly atmosphere. The hostel had a kitchen and nice lounge area which were always clean. The only downside was the security- only 1 key to lock the main door and small lockers to only fit valuables. It was a little worn but the price was good for its location in Split. Really enjoyed my stay!!

    Bed bugs! This is likely not the hostels fault. I found a bed bug & marks of squashed bugs in my bed. Checked out early & was not charged for the night. Other guests were also refunded. The entire dorm above checked out as well due to bed bugs. Bottom bunks have no head room & the place didn’t seem the cleanest. Location is great but right across from a loud pub. Dorm doors don’t lock & my dorm could be accessed from another hostel via the window. Staff were lovely though! Wouldn’t stay again.
