Property Description

Backpackers fairytale exists already for 6 years. It’ s situated in a perfect spot, just 3 minutes from the 1700 year old Dioclation palace, near all the bars and restaurants, but it’s still in a nice and quiet neighborhood. Place is clean and colorful with a nice, big common area where u can chill listening to an old record on a gramophone while enjoying one of the best views in the city. From our balconies you can see the whole city, the bell tower of St. Duje, port, cute park Sustipan and our amazing hill Marjan so u can enjoy this view from dawn to dusk.
My name is Antea and I opened the hostel because I wanted to travel the world, so I understand your needs and I will always try to help you and to make you feel like you are at home, so don’t forget to ask whatever you need. We have a dog, her name is Tia and she is super nice and makes everyone thinking about their pets at home. We are always active, so if you like outdoor activity (slacklining, rock climbing, DWS, stand up paddle, trekking…) maybe you are lucky and we are going to do something when you are with us, if we do you are more then welcome to join us.

    The perfect relaxed hostel, so chill and homely. I ended up extending my stay because both the hostel and split are so nice and relaxing. It’s like staying at a friends house.

    I stayed there for 3 days and it was great. The staff was super helpful and I had a good overview of the city and the things to do when I arrived. I would say that it can get really cold at night during the low season, but it's the samething in every hostel in Split.

    Located around 10 minute walk from the bus station/ferry and 5 from the old town/Diocletian's palace you can easily use this hostel as a basepoint to discover all you can in Split. Plenty of museums, delicious restaurants that the staff is more than happy to recommend and just wandering around the old Roman palace turned medieval city. Plus an incredibly laid back vibe in the hostel itself it's pretty easy to meet people to explore the town with or just chat about the goings on.

    Was a pretty nice hostel. Good location, nice kitchen, and homey feel. But kinda hard to find. It’s by a empty car park on the 5th floor of an apartment building with a small sign out front, so heads up on that. Grocery store close by. If you are going to stay there be aware that their “reception” is not open before 8:30 am. So if your coming in early tell them through email or you’re going to p**s the people that volenteer there off...

    Got in from an overnight train ride to drop off my bags and wander around the city, and was promptly yelled at by a staff member for waking him up (7:30-8:00AM). I ended up not staying, but I spoke with other guests at the hostel who also ended up changing hostels after a few nights, and the same staff member is apparently often quite abrasive to the guests. The place looks like someone just renovated a tiny apartment, the location isn't amazing, and there are nicer and cheaper hostels in Split.

    Great location, but the hostel was disappointing. People smoking weed constantly on the balcony, and the balcony door always open so the whole hostel smelled. No key cards or locks for the rooms, only a key for the door to the hostel (only locked during the night) and your storage locker. As a young female, I didn't feel very comfortable, so I was lucky to make a friend in my room who bettered my experience. Besides the hostel owner (nice), I had no idea who other staff were/if there were others
