The location of the hostel is awesome, that's if you can find it! Split can be a bit tricky with side alley ways doubling as streets, so be sure to keep your eyes open when you're trying to find it. It's located in an alley behind a news stand. You will miss it if you don't see the news stand, and turn in behind the news stand and walk up the alley.
The room I had was alright. I was in a 5 bed mixed dorm. The room itself wasn't overly large, but was big enough for us to stay comfortably. One complaint I had was the location of the room. When you enter the hostel, there is a room on your right then stairs that lead up to the other rooms. The room on the right is where I stayed. This room also possesses the cleaning supplies, towels and sheets for the cleaning staff, so every morning, we had hostel staff coming in and out of the room to access these items. Many times, they left our door wide open while they were coming in and out. The other complaint is that the bathroom for this room is next to the entrance, so you would have to leave your room, cut through the line of people trying to check in and out and use the bathroom right in the lobby.
Security in the hostel is questionable. I never really felt unsafe, but I really didn't like that the door was just left wide open all day (until 10 pm), and then after 10, hostel staff leave and the hostel is unattended until they return in the morning.
The staff at the hostel were all super friendly, invited me out for drinks, and were available for any questions. One of the staff gave me his personal mobile number in case I had any issues with the shuttle he had arranged for 5 am on my day of departure. He could not have been more helpful!
