We booked a private room for the three of us but we ended up sharing a room with another person because, owner said, "Split is too busy". He offered us a discount, which we eventually found out was the standard cost of a dorm room.... not a discount after all... The hostel is a bit run down and you will...

We have booked two nights for a private bedroom on hostelworld. When we arrived Paul said our room was booked to somebody else for a longer period. He offered to slip in the kitchen, with no keys. We had to book something else of course, twice expensive for the same night. Paul and Manuela are not running their business fairly,...

We've spent 2 nights at manuelas hostel and we had a great time there. The hostel was all clean and there wasn't anything to complain about. Paul was very frendly and gave us some very nice insider tipps for our stay in split. We would definitly go back there when we travel next time to split :)

I stayed here for one night with friends. The room and facilities were pretty basic but perfectly reasonable for the price we paid. The rooftop area was a great place to chill in the evening. I'd recommend his hostel if you're looking for somewhere cheap and no-nonsense.

Friendly owners, centric and the cheapest in Split. Kitchen was OK, it was small but it had what I needed. The room was a little bit smelly and the party on the roof didn't help at all to sleep. The hostel is located in a residential zone and the roof has a great view.

The hostel has the perfect location and the friendliest hosts I have met during a month of travelling. I'd recommend it to anyone! The wifi was great and the aircon was a cherry on top of the cake. They were very flexible with check in and they let us keep our bags in the hostel for the day after check...

Perfectly situated in the old town, with a welcoming host. There is a roof terrace, which was a nice area to have a chill and a smoke. Rooms have AC, however one of the bunk beds was very rickety and seemed unstable. The biggest downside was a single toilet and shower room between the 3 rooms, so long waits for...

the staff of hostel manuela is super friendly and flexible so that is great! Near the hostel is a supermarket and a bottleshop which is very convenient. The rooms are ok, nothing special and the rooftop is Great because you can have your dinner or predrinks over there. There is a small kitchen downstairs which works fine. The only critic...

The owners of the hostel were nice and helpful and suggested where to go see and good places to eat (Fefe had amazing seafood and was not expensive!). The location of the property is close to the city center and is walking distance to most attractions. The rooftop terrace is great to relax and meet the other hostel guests! Only...

“Free wifi- but only works downstairs. I would also recommend checking the location on a map before coming as it is on a small side street and may be difficult to find the first time if you are arriving at night!”
