Superb Based on reviews. Loved this hostel!! Especially our lovely host, she made our stay that much better! Facilities are clean, stylish, spacious, and we felt at home during our stay. Free parking on the premises and only a short walk from the center. Highly recommend this hostel, we felt welcome and safe.
Hostel is a tad secluded, part of an apartment building next to a hair salon with parking lot in the front and a school in the back as a heads up for future travels! Ivona is a very welcoming host. She gave us suggestions about restaurants and places to go to. The hostel is close to the city centre. This hostel was perfect for me. It was a short walk away from the centre so it was away from all the noise. The hostel isn't the biggest so I didn't experience any noise disturbance.
Ivona was very helpful and was there to assist with any queries I had. Facilities were good and it had a nice shower. Wonderful hostel with the most amazing staff I have ever experienced. They sat us down to show us everything we needed to do in the city as well as the best places to eat! They were always there to help and very approachable and nice. Rooms are very clean and spacious. Parking available for travelers with cars.
Only a 10 minute walk from the city center in a nice area. This is a model hostel and one I will stay at again! Ivona and the Cicada Hostel were awesome. Ivona is a kind and thoughtful host - I was sick while there and she went out of her way to make me tea and feel as comfortable as I could. The location is quite central within Split and is a nice 15 minute walk from be Old Town in a non-touristy part of town. One of the best hostels I stayed in.
Ivona and Marin are such kind, welcoming, helpful and fun people.

Beds and living room are comfortable, well equipped kitchen, nice showers, everything clean, good WiFi Just a bit far out ot town but definitely worth the walk! This little hostel was a hidden gem. The location is up behind the harbour about 15 minutes away by foot. Ivona was a fantastic host.

She was readily available and provided great recommendations of things to see and do. The hostel was very clean and tidy. Good security not that I felt I needed any. Being provided with a fresh coffee everyday was a nice bonus. Great hostel. Very clean and the host is super nice! Not a bad walk from old town area and water front.
Warning! Do not eat raw cicadas, find out why.
Would recommend! Solo female traveler: felt safe, nice beds and was clean. Good WiFi connection. Ivona is a welcoming host.
