This was a little apartment , nice artsy bright colours , hardwood floors ,TV, Fridge, stove and AC. We thought it was great . It’s a short walk from the bus/ferry terminal. At $88.00 double it’s a good value. Booked on Hostelworld.com

Great value accommodation in the heart of Split

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 8, 2007

I stayed at Hostel Dioklecijan for 2 nights during a visit to Split in May 2007.

My friend and I paid 36 Euros (£25) per night for a twin room with shared bathroom and kitchen facilities. This proved to be very good value for money.

Location

Hostel Dioklecijan is located in the heart of Split's old town, close to Diocletian's Palace. This unpretentious hostel is tucked away on the small square of Priora Petra and is reached by successfully navigating the narrow streets around it. It is just a 2 minute walk inland from the bustling promenade and a 10 minute walk from the bus, train and ferry stations. To find the hostel, follow these directions:

From the bus/train/ferry station:

Walk along the seafront keeping the sea to your left hand side;
Walk along the Promenade;
Turn right onto the pedestrianised shopping street of Marmontova;
After 50 metres, you'll pass a small outdoor fish market;
Turn right immediately after the fish market;
This small street looks like a dead end, with a "Konzum" mini market at the end, but you can actually turn right at the end of it;
Take this right, then turn left after about 10 metres. This brings you onto Priora Petra and the hostel's entrance is in the top left hand corner.

Bedroom

Our room had bright pink walls and two large windows, giving the room a bright and airy feel. The room contained two single beds, a large double wardrobe, satellite TV (40+ channels including BBC and CNN), bedside cabinets, lamps and plenty of plug sockets. Blankets and towels are provided.

Our room, along with two other rooms, was located on the third floor. The three rooms shared a small kitchen area (with dining table, fridge, oven hobs, cutlery and crockery) and a small, but spotlessly clean, shower room.

Unique Quality: .

General

All guests are given three keys - one for their room, one for the door to enter the particular floor that their room is on and one for the hostel's main front door.

The reception area, which is open from early morning until evening, is staffed by the friendly owners who are happy to dispense with maps and useful information. All the staff that we met spoke English fluently and were always happy to chat with us.

The hostel has no lift, so you may, as we did, have to drag your luggage up three flights of stairs.

No breakfast is served in the hostel, but you can prepare your own food in the kitchen located on your floor.

Despite being called a "hostel", it felt more like a guesthouse as it contained a number of private rooms. I think there is a dorm room on the second floor, but even that has only 3 or 4 beds in it.

An excellent value for money "hostel", right in the heart of Split! Friendly owners and clean, comfortable rooms. Highly recommended!

Directions: Located in the heart of the old town, a 2 minute walk inland from the promenade. A 10 minute walk from the bus station and 15 minutes walk from Bacvice Beach.

Best Budget Place in Split

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 25, 2006

After several failed attempts at finding quality budget accommodation in Split, I finally found one that works. This hostel is more of a no-star guesthouse than a youth hostel. Indeed, I believe it only has seven rooms and I never saw another guest. The location is perfect, located directly in the walls of the palace and only about a ten-fifteen minute walk from the bus and train station. It’s fairly new and shows, from the cleanliness to the fact that everything is in working order. We had a double room that was of good size and boasted a television set, heater (very important) and air conditioning. A small kitchen was located directly outside the room and shared by two other rooms. The kitchen was well stocked and very orderly. We shared a bathroom with the other guests on our floor, but there were so few of us that it wasn’t a problem. The people who worked in the hostel were very friendly and attentive and helped out however they could. I would definitely recommend staying there above everywhere else I have either stayed, or heard about staying, in Split.

Directions: From Marmontova take a right & walk 50 metres to the fish market. Take a right past the fish market & walk straight to the market Konzum. There, take a right & the hostel will be located on your left in 10 metres.
