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.

    The owner, staffs and 2 dogs warmly welcomed me. I chose here because it is not within the Split heritage area but close to bus&train and local bus stations, but we can walk to eat and drink in the main area/ So, it is quiet at night, no shout by the drunken :D Fully equipped for what I want l slept in cool air and woke up with beautiful sunrise. (The room is at the top stair so we can see the whole Split heritage area from the terrace) I stayed here for 2 nights but I really need come back!!!

    This is honestly the best hostel I have ever stayed at. The staff is so friendly and down to earth and experienced travellers as well, and they are always ready with a few great tips for Split. The atmosphere in the hostel is so homely and “chill” and it is a great place to meet and talk to new people. The shower and toilet facilities are great and the rooms have everything you need. Also, there is a nice little kitchen. Located only two minutes walk from city center. Would definitely come back!

    This hostel has been created with a lot of love and is filled with really wonderful vibes. I was welcomed with real openness and felt totally at home during my stay. The space is cosy but very clean, organised and is in a great location with a perfect sunny deck area. Most importantly though, the hostel is genuine and personal which is rare to come across.

    What can I say about backpackers fairytale? Honestly one of the most homely feel hostels I can stay in so far. The hosts are accommodating, loving and are so very helpful. The combination of relaxing music playing when we first arrived, and the ability to sit with everyone and watch movies leads to a very welcoming atmosphere. It was clean, the showers were great, beds were comfy, and it was warm. Would I go back or recommend this hostel to anyone? Of course!!!!

    I've come to Split many times and I have to say without doubt this is the best hostel in Croatia! Amazing view of the Old Town with fantastic facilities. Everything is so clean and the kitchen and common room make me feel like I'm actually staying in a home. The owners Antea and Vlady were so friendly and knowledgeable about everything. They even shared their meals with me and introduced me to their friends! Really cant recommend this place more, I'll definetly be back!
