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.

We are located 10 min from the ferry, bus and train station.

    Excellent hostel, photos and descriptions are exactly as listed. Staff were so helpful, friendly and involved you in evening activities and informed you of all attractions. When I arrived, the place was spotless as everywhere had just been cleaned. Towels provided and a fully stocked beer fridge was very much appreciated. Really homely atmosphere and the music playing created a comforting environment. Really recommend!

    Great experience here! Lots of opportunity to meet other travellers through the day trips. Since it’s a small hostel it’s less overwhelming too! Staff are nice, location is great. Beds are a little uncomfortable but can’t really complain over all

    We stayed here for our first couple of nights in split. It was very close to where the bus from the airport which was a plus. Only a 5 minute walk down to the harbour also. Staff very welcoming and gave lots of information.

    Really enjoyed my short stay here. Met some really cool people and spent my time there with them. Even went to Hvar with 2 people I met there. The hostel staff is super informative and very helpful and know lots about the town as they’re locals.

    It’s a really cute hostel in a little apartment right in Split. A bit tricky to find but not too bad really. The staff are really friendly and helpful. Because it’s quite a small place the atmosphere really depends on how many people are around and what age group they are. It’s a bit hit or miss as to whether or not you’ll meet people there. Overall it was good though I’d probably stay there again

    I enjoyed my stay at Backpacker's Fairytale. Great location and value in split, super homey vibe. Beds were very uncomfortable but common room was great. Staff was a mixed bag of friendly and rude. The unicorn tour was AMAZING, highly recommend! Overall I'd probably return!

    The highlight of the hostel was the staff member who recomended what to do and where to go. Nothing gets locked, so a random guy just kept on walking in and out of our room. Showers have mold in them. When asked to take off sheets before leaving- you can see how dirty the pillows and matress are. Very overrated hostel.
