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!

*We have a 48 hour cancellation policy - in case of a no show or a late cancellation, you will be charged for the first night’s stay.

    My friend and I agreed that Al’s is one of our favourite hostels we ever stayed in. As well as the great location right on the street of a fun backpacking bar in the centre of the beautiful old town, the girls were so welcoming and fun! We all went out together during the day and in the evening- very social place to be 5 stars all round!!

    A super homely hostel with only 2 rooms. Bathroom is good size and clean. All the staff are very friendly and welcoming and go out of there way to strike up a conversation. It’s in a great location, super close to everything as it’s in the bathroom old town, and right next to Charlie’s bar. Can hear the noise from it at night in the common areas but if the dorm room door is closed can’t no here in the rooms. Only down side is the wifi is not good, constantly disconnects. Or there is no signal.

    Had the most amazing time at Al's. This was my first hostel experience and I had no idea what to expect. Paula and Lee were the best possible hosts. They made me feel totally at home immediately. Amazing location - directly across from a backpackers bar which is alwayyys a great start to the night if you wanna go out. And realllly appreciated the communal kitchen that made it so easy to meet fellow travellers. Absolutely recommend staying here. Youll have the best time.

    I dont have enough characters to complain about everything and no doubt I will receive a sassy reply but the main thing you need to know is: THERE IS NO SECURITY HERE YOU CANNOT LOCK YOUR ROOM AND MOST GUESTS FOEGET TO LOCK THE FRONT DOOR WHEN THEY COME IN DRUNK. EVERYTIME I CAME BACK HERE THE FRONT DOOR HAD BEEN LEFT UNLOCKED. You have to ask yourself if the cheap price is worth risking your personal security.
