Although housed in a 4th century Roman palace, this design experiment bares no reflection whatsoever of the ancient city around it. Nothing of the kind at all! The youth hostel Golly ± Bossy has London-like cool'n'crazy vibe about it and a dazzling yellow interior. Designed as a hybrid of a Japanese pill hotel and a European department store, it's equipped with elevators, escalators and arrows and symbols on its glistening floors, marking your way to lockers, shower or WC. Painted in black, they are almost the only tiny deviation from the otherwise monochrome yellow décor. The choice can be explained, however - sulphur is yellow and Split was once famous for its hydrogen sulfide baths.
With its unconventional layout and capsule-like compartments for beds, the hostel offers the necessary dose of comfort and privacy.
