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.

    Perfect for my two-night stay in Split! The staff are friendly and gave me a map with great recommendations, and the kitchen/living room were cozy communal areas to meet other travelers. Even though I stayed in the 10-bed room, I slept well both nights after long days of exploring, which was a major plus!

    Very cute hostel. Staff could be more attentive with pre booked things, as I was offered SUP tour via email but apparently it doesn't run this early in the season. That was a disapointment upon arrival. Otherwise good experience & would recommend :) kitchen was good !

    We did not have a good experience at this hostel. The water temperature is dependent on some switchers which are next to the light ones and all around. That means you have a pretty good chance that the water gets cold while in the shower. Also, the free parking means you can park for free in the streets - if you can find a spot, which seems to be really hard if you do not want to risk to be charged by the police. We also had the worst restaurant tips from the hostel employees.
