Split, one of the best launch pads for exploring the beautiful islands of Croatia and a fantastic city in its own right, has become a backpacker haven in recent years.
Hostel Croparadise is a short walk from the water and offers comfortable dorm rooms with clean bathrooms and modern, fully-equipped kitchens.
It’s targeted at young, technology-dependent travellers, offering free internet access via two flat-screen computers in each dorm, as well as a giant TV.
From £9.40 per night. See www.croparadise.com.
