Old Town Hostel
Ranked #42 of 512 Speciality Lodging in Split
Reviewed 12 June 2016

I was in the big room next to the door so there was more morning foot traffic than I would've liked, but that's what you get with a hostel. It's worth it though, and the view of the cathedral bell tower was gorgeous. Plenty of outlets, good wifi, just know that you're sharing two bathrooms so time wisely. Chloe took us for a great night out!! I recommend the group dinner - really good food for what you pay and a great way to meet everyone.

Room Tip: Pretty view, not too loud

This hostel is sooo awesome. Really located to the old town, initial plan just to stay 1night but end up 3nights! Chloe is such a doll, she showed us around and introduced us to some of her friends which is awesome. She also showed us a non touristy area to go enjoy the sea and we definitely feels like home. Definitely will come back

This was the first hostel I'd stayed at - ever, but it was a really good experience! It can be a little tricky to find though! Everything in the palace is a short walk, so it didn't take long to get to other restaurants or to the oceanfront. This place IS small, but that does make it easy to meet other travelers if you're alone like I was. I stayed in a group room, with the windows open, so once the city wakes up it can be hard to sleep in. The hostel itself was very clean and had private bathrooms/showers, which I liked. The staff were very friendly and helpful -they got anyone who was interested together to go out every night and were very welcoming. A great place to stay if you're traveling solo and looking to meet people!

The old town hostel is located conveniently in the Diocletian's palace in a residential apartment building. Rooms are small as what previous reviewers have said but are clean and not a problem. The biggest problem is the crammed corridor and proximity of common space to the rooms. Staff leave by 10pm and hostel go-ers are left on their own afterwards. Many see this as a license to party and go on partying with loud music and voices till late at night, with no regard for others who have gone to bed. If a good night's sleep (or any sleep at all) is important to you, please stay away from this place.
