The antiquity and ancient history of Dalmatia’s largest city receives a jolt of modernity with this new hostel. Owners Mila and Toni Radan restored a ruined early 20th-century apartment, dividing fifteen beds between two different rooms, starkly designed by Lana Vitas Gruic of Atom Design Studio. While one room is a riot of block colours, the other is an exercise in muted minimalism. The interiors are a nod to the daily pleasures of Mediterranean life, with street scenes gracing the walls in honour of Split’s maritime heritage.
