The Hostelz.com Review

Inchy Rooms Guesthouse is a locally run hostel and guesthouse in a perfect location right inside the walls of the old city of Split, which is located right on the Adriatic coast of Croatia. The area attracts a higher amount of tourists, especially in summer.

The Location

As mentioned, the hostel is located right in the heart of the old city. It is inside Diocletian’s Palace, one of the best-preserved examples of Roman architecture, built in the fourth century AD. The main bus station coming from the airport and from other national and international cities is only ten minutes away on foot. To reach the airport, the bus takes around half an hour. The Old Town is extremely packed with tourists but Inchy Guesthouse is right inside a little patio, so there is no noise coming from the street.

Rooms and Bathrooms

It is a small place and there are not many rooms. There are only double rooms with bunk beds and the toilet is shared among all the guests. The hostel is built inside a normal flat, so each guest has the key to enter the door and each room has separate keys as well. Air conditioning is in each room and in the common areas as well. Mattresses are fairly comfy and the beds are not noisy. The space in the room is a little limited though, and two people with big backpackers can suffer a bit. The bathroom has a great hot shower. The owner keeps everything clean and towels and bed sheets can be changed everyday if the guests request it.

Common Spaces

There are no common spaces except for the large kitchen in the center of the flat. Guests can use it free of charge and there is also an oven with a microwave and a fridge with freezer. To check in, guests need to call the owner who comes to pick them up at the entrance of the building and bring them up though the stairs. As there is no true common area and only a few rooms, the hostel vibe is nonexistent. Sometimes guests pass by, but it is only a matter of saying hi.

Summary

It is a nice place with the best possible location in Split. There's not much hostel vibe though; it's just a place to crash, but it is almost impossible to meet people. However the rooms are fairly great and the place is run by the owner who makes everything possible to let guests enjoy their stay.

Great rooms
Clean, small hostel in the centre of the Split Old Town. Inchy is very helpful with info on how to avoid the worst of the super touristy prices.

The ideal location, comfortable, clean, and quiet
Our visit here was excellent. We were able to walk there with our luggage right off the ferry from Ancona Italy. The location is in the center of the old historic town, just where we wanted to be. Inchy was very helpful in orienting us to the city, and gave us all a big glass of fresh homemade lemonade on our arrival. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable, and inexpensive. She kept our luggage for a few days so we could visit nearby island Hvar without our big bags. She is a delightful host and I highly recommend her.

Excellent, Inchy and Boris were great!
The hosts, Inchy and Boris, were very nice and friendly. Boris came to pick us up at the bus station arrival at 1 a.m. We highly recommend!

Warm and welcoming
Inchy runs a warm and welcoming apartment where you are included as part of the family. She gives excellent, specific information about local attractions and how to access them. I stayed a total of five days. Thanks Inchy (and Boris and Peter) for making my stay in Croatia so wonderful.
