Not as described on HostelBookers. 

When we arrived in Split, a kind local man walked us to where Bell Tower Hostel was meant to be. It was private apartments no sign or name of Bell Tower or any hostel. There was tourists staying here and when we knocked on the door which was open and walked in to find someone, the guy asked us the name of the place we was staying and made a phone call from a list of numbers. A girl arrived and she took us outside the old city to a place to stay! 

Entrance to our change of hotel

The place had 4 beds, air-con, and was clean. There was not enough hot water to shower 4 people in a row.
It was centered between the old city and beach. 

There was a bar/cafe opposite our apartment. 

Split is also gateway to the islands of Hvar, Brac and Vis, and an excellent entry point to start exploring the Dalmatian coast.

Money exchange £1.00 = 8.49 Kuna (13/08/2011)
