Split is the second largest city in Croatia, although once you are there it will feel pretty compact. All of the major sights (with exception of the soccer pitch) are located right on the coastline, most of them within the confines of the harbor area. Split's train station, bus terminal, and ferry landing are all within steps of each other, making getting in, out, and through Split very easy.
Upon arrival in Split you will be overwhelmed by people with offers of apartments and rooms. Although it is possible to negotiate a deal here, you will not know where you are staying until the deal is closed. Stories of dirty rooms, far off apartments, and bedbugs are common. It is best to book ahead.
Over the last several years Split has become very backpacker friendly with many hostels setting up shop. They are all fairly new, which means clean and top rate facilities however the owners may still be learning how to properly run a hostel. Pay close attention to reviews, some hostel owners have been known to offer discounts and special rooms in exchange for positive reviews. If the majority of the reviews are negative with only a handful of extremely positive, be wary.
Split is a great place to relax and hang out by the beach, so book your hostel accordingly. Most of the nightlife is also centered around the harbor and the old Roman settlement. Most locations are within walking distance which is a good thing as the public transit leaves something to be desired.

Silver Gate Hostel
"Right next to Diocletian's Palace - Good, basic hostel. I had trouble finding it, since there's a small sign pointing you to the top level of a building. Right next to the markets, which is good (for
Al's Place Hostel
"Truly located in the center of town, Al's Place lies well within the walls of Diocletian's Palace making any sight within walking distance of the hostel. Run by Al, a somewhat nutty Brit, this hostel is open from May to the end of October. Really the only drawback to the hostel is the difficulty in finding it. Even the tourist information was unsure, and an Aussie couple asked police who didn't know. But, if you follow Al's directions and...
"The building that houses Hostel Placida is located centrally, just outside of the northwest corner on the palace. For first time users from the Croatia Airlines Shuttle/Bus depot/Train Station/Harbor -- walk to the center (take the street along the water with all the signs that say center. Then, follow the street along the water with the palm trees for a few blocks. Take the last marble street to your left (be sure to note the cheap pizza...
Mediterranean House Hostel
"Mediterranean House Hostel -- a friendly, family-run place -- feels like home away from home. And, it's only a three-minute walk from Diocletian's Palace! The Location The hostel is very well located close to central Split, only a few minutes away from Diocletian's Palace and the palm-lined harbour. The walk from the harbour/bus/train station takes about fifteen minutes, but make sure to write down the directions before you arrive in...
Split Hostel Booze & Snooze
"The Location Following the directions to Split Hostel Booze & Snooze may seem like working out a puzzle for the first-time visitor to Split, especially through the maze of cobbled stone streets within the Diocletian Palace. Pushing passed the crowds and busy cafes, the hostel is located in a little alley way behind a Tisak newspaper stand in Narodni Trg. Bear in mind that you may be accosted by some locals asking if you are looking for a...
"Wonderful hosts, great accommodation - We spent one night at Kamena Lodge coming back from Hvar. The hosts Ann and Glynn are wonderful people with a lot of helpful information and insider tips on the area. The accommodation itself is awesome. The rooms are very clean, lovely decorated, and it feels like a home away from home. The pool is great to cool off and the pool area is nice for a little chat in the evening. There is a daily shuttle...
Private Accomodation Hostel Antonio
"Hostel Antonio is surrounded by the wonderful atmosphere of Split, Croatia. It is right in the heart of the UNESCO heritage zone -- you will be walking amongst the living history of the area, on the centuries polished and sometimes treacherous stone streets and within walking distance or a short bus ride from all the major beaches and tourist points. Hostel Antonio tries very hard to be quality accommodation, though sometimes falls short....
CroParadise Green Hostel
"CroParadise Green Hostel is quite a nice hostel for the price, with good, clean facilities and friendly staff. The Location CroParadise Green Hostel is located in an apartment building, which is about a six-minute walk from the waterfront area of Split. From the bus/ferry docks, it is a fairly easy to locate. After getting off the bus/ferry, walk up the road toward the city. Continue along the road as it curves right and then turn left...
Hostel Ana Zahirović
"Dirty and worn - The hostel was dirty, especially in the bathrooms, all the locks were broken for toilets and there was not any toilet paper most of the time. The shower heads had no wall fixing making it harder to shower.The family sleeps in the area outside and makes it difficult to socialise in that area. Our room had no AC and no curtains. Wifi didn't reach all the rooms. Good location but the worst hostel I stayed at during my...
"Pletkovic Hostel offers the very basics if you are looking to explore the ancient Roman ruins or relax out on the Croatian beaches. The Location Located about five minutes' walking distance away from the train and bus station, this hostel is a great deal for where it is situated. From here you can easily walk to the open air Roman ruins or down the coastline for the beaches. The town itself is quiet small and there are a lot of...

"Seaside tranquility - A perfect quiet beach house getaway to lazily tan for whole days. There isn't much else around to do (not that you'd want to do anything if it is sunny, apart from swim and tan). The breakfast is wonderfully catered. The accommodation is modern and clean. The seawater is basically on the doorstep of the common area. Absolutely the best full kitchen facilities in any hostel i've stayed in around the world for the last 8...

Beach Hostel Split-Bacvice
"Beach Hostel Split-Bacvice is a great hostel -- the quality overall is what you could expect from a good hostel in term of cleanliness and available infrastructure, but it's really the personality and dynamism of the manager (Ladybird) that will make your stay at this hostel feel like home. The Location Contrary to what the name may let you think, it's not a "feet in the sand" hostel. You'll have to make the overwhelming effort of...

Split Guesthouse & Hostel
"Good hostel with nice service a bit off the main area - The host of the hostel welcomes you with an alcoholic drink, which is a nice gesture, but also sets the tone for the place. I think it's fair to say that this hostel puts the social in centre, and with that there comes some drinking. The room itself is alright. However, you will face some noise outside when opening the windows, especially in the weekends, as the hostel sits on quite a...

Split Travel Tips & Suggestions
You certainly need to do a Split walking tour -- see the Diocletian palace.
Everyone says they prefer Dubrovnik to Split, but I quite liked it in Split! Black Cat restaurant/bar near the station has amazing food, seems to be full of foreigners. The beach is concrete, so visit the islands if you want something more picturesque (although there are no sand beaches on any of the islands). Wandering around the center of town you'll see a multitude of bars and cool cafes in random alleys. It's quite touristy with all the shops.
Split is a very nice and idyllic city, but also modern with lots of shops and nightlife. There are two beaches, one in each direction if you stand at the promenade at the end of what seems to me was the end of the main shopping street. If you visit Split you should also take a boat trip out to some of the islands - like Hvar or Brac.
The region of Split seems like one big beach party in the summer. If you make it to Split proper, try the Roman ruin walking tour and definitely check out some of Croatia's beautiful islands. Also, if you are staying in a private room, always haggle - there are plenty of options so the prices will always come down.
