Reviewed 9 September 2013 via mobile

This place was good and friendly I must admit. Its well located but difficulr to find at first. Both near to the main beach and not far from town. A few supermarkets ideally located nearby too. The place has a lovely feel to it in terms of art and a decent atmosphere, but the owner ladybird can be a bit too much and a bit of a pain. Shes nice but a little overbearing, and not aa helpful as other reviews have pointed out as her knowledge on some matterscan be quite weak. The rooms also werent too great and neither were the bathrooms. Split is an absolutely lovely place however and if you want a hostel with good location and atmosphere, this is the one for you.

Great location. Right beside the beach and beach bars and walking distance if the old town. Ladybird was so helpful. She booked everything we needed: taxis , white water rafting, ferries. She even did our laundry! It was small and we met so many peope! So great

The lady who runs this hostel (Ladybird) is extremely helpful and very accommodating. The hostel is very clean, has cooking facilities, plates, cutlery and a fridge etc. They also have one computer with internet and free wi-fi. It's a very secure hostel as well, you have to have your key to get in so no strangers can just walk inside. It's very close to the beach, just a 5min walk down the road. There's also a great restaurant just down the road at the beach too, and it does free crepes for people who are staying at the hostel if they buy something else...ask Ladybird what the name of the place is. There is a supermarket just up the road, a 5min walk which is great, and there's an atm machine in a hotel lobby only 200m away as well.

It is such an nice hostel it's right by the beach and childrens playground. It was my first time in a hostel and with a child. Gladly it wasn't a season so it was calm and quiet. Ladybird is just lovely and helpful, even tried to fix my son's waterpistol... If I come to another visit with my friends we'll definetly book this place.

We arrived on a morning flight from Rome and Ladybird let us in to leave our bags whilst room was prepared. Everything was easy, we walked down to the local beach, enjoyed the water and had some lunch then checked into our room.
My friend and I stayed in a 6 dorm mixed room- no problems at all.
A little walk (about 15-20 mins) to the old own and main city centre but this didn't bother us.
Enough bars and beaches close to hostel to stay amused.
We only stayed there for 2 nights on our way to Hvar island which was a good length for us.

The hostel was clean, well located, and had everything we needed but we were not happy with the price. We had not booked it on Hostelworld ahead of time due to a loose schedule but when we arrived and requested the same type room as advertised on the site we were quoted a price that was much higher. LadyBird insisted that the price she quoted us was cheaper than Hostelworld but I had the website up when we discussed price. She was quite eccentric and seemed more concerned about her upcoming trip to her home in Norway than she was with her guests.

Room Tip: We only saw our room which was perfect for what we needed. The only advice I can give for anyone bo...
