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!

    Great location in the middle of the old town. Although some bars exist just outside, you couldn’t hear any noise inside. The staff was super friendly explaining getting around Split!

    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.

Very much a family feel in this hostel and a wonderful location right in the old town. Would definitely recommend staying here!

    SMALL AND AMAZING HOSTEL! A lot of hostels in old town Split is really small. Maddy is also very friendly and told me a bunch of things to do in Split. You would definitely meet people at the hostel if you are a solo traveller. Great chill atmosphere at the hostel. I love this place!

    I loved my time at Al’s Place! Perfect location, near lots of shops, bar and restaurant options as well as the market! The staff are so knowledgeable and give you loads of recommendations for things to do with your time in Split! Maddy took myself and a few of the guests out to the street bars and we had a really good time! Will recommend to anyone I know coming to Split that they stay here!
