Liked: We have been travelling Europe for two months now and this hostel is by far the best we have stayed at. Glynn and Ann are extremely good hosts and will go out of their way to make sure your stay is as good as it can possibly be. It felt like a home away from home and we really didn't want to leave. The facilities were excellent, the place was so clean and they sell beers for a good price, they have a pool and have a bookshelf where you can swap books if you want. The house is a bit out of Split, too far to walk, but there is a bus system that runs into split, and Glynn might even drive you down. Glynn will also pick you up from the bus/train station for free, which is a lifesaver. They also run activities and tours such as rafting, seeing the waterfalls, going to the cave etc. Definitely want to go back someday!

Disliked: Wish we could have stayed longer.

Liked: A fantastic short stay at Kamena Lodge! Do not let it's location (about 15 min bus from split town) put you off - the quiet location, with pool, two terraces and giant barbecue are it's highlights! Head and shoulders avove other hostels in split. Immaculately clean and well equipt. Ann and Glynn are amazing hosts, very knowledgable and will go out it there way to help! Met great people and the day at the Kirka waterfalls was a day we'll never forget! Thank you so much!

Liked: Fantastic little hostel, feels like you are staying at a family friends house rather than a hostel. The whole place is immaculate, Ann and Glynn are extremely helpful and offer personalised service and local expertise on everything, even doing their own trips to major attractions at lower prices. Would absolutely recommend to anyone going through split either travelling alone or as a group

Liked: Kamena Lodge was not only one of the best accommodations I have ever had the pleasure of staying in, but provided one of my best travel memories in general. Staying with Anne and Glynn in their beautiful home was like hanging out with the coolest aunt and uncle you can imagine. Not only are they some of the kindest, most generous people I have ever met, but they are so much fun! Do not let the distance from the city center prevent you from staying here. Glynn dropped us off wherever we wanted in the area and the buses are easy to navigate and expedient. Additionally, being away from the city center means that you can enjoy their pool, hammocks, and spacious hostel in relative peace. You must also try Glynn's barbecue and their wine. This hostel is the best bargain I have ever enjoyed, and my predicted return is primarily inspired by my desire to stay at Kamena Lodge again.

Disliked: There was absolutely nothing to dislike.

Liked: Anne and Glynn completely embrace you into their home. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the pool is amazing and Anne's BBQ is legendary. Even though its out of town, the bus runs regularly and Glynn will drop you off! Definitely worth a visit!

Liked: Kamena lodge is more likes guesthouse than a hostel. It's very clean, comfortable and relaxing. The pool area is lovely to just relax in. The hammocks are definitely a great addition! The trip to krka was really good and the photos Glynn took for us were lovely, definitely my favourite of the holiday. And the BBQ we had afterwards was amazing, Ann makes the best salads!!

Disliked: Being out of the centre is lovely, the only issue is if you want to go into split in the evening because the buses do not run that late, I think only until about 10.30 or 11. If you're not bothered about the nightlife then it's fine but because we had friends in the centre it made it more frustrating. Although the taxis back aren't too expensive so it's not impossible to have it all!!
