I only stayed a night, but this was an really quality hostel. Friendly staff, great location, nice common areas. The only downside is it's not a 24/7 reception, so that's why the rating isn't 100%
If you're going to have a lay over or even just a few night there in Zagreb this is the hostel you want to stay at. IT is very close to everything and this very fantastic restaurant for such a reasonable price. This is a must stay hostel if you're going to be here in Zagreb.
The hostel was nice and clean. The staff was super friendly and helpful. My only concern was that, the dorm got really hot, so other travelers kept the window open, which had no protection and the room was easily accessible from the street, so people could jump and steal our stuff. Unfortunately I have seen this kind of robberies at other hostels, so I was worried about getting someone in the room even in the middle of the night. There were lockers, but it would be better to have protections.
The spaces were all very clean! though the rooms were quite stuffy and got a bit smelly - the ventilation isn't great, especially in the heat, with the spaces being so small. Loved how the staff give out free tastes of Irakia during the happy hour. Knowledgeable, friendly staff. Enjoyed how small this hostel is - feels homey. Great high speed wifi made it possible for me to work late at night in the quiet of the kitchen. Missing for me was the lack of a side room to work if people are awake.
Excellent Hostel, nice staff, happy hours for a cheap beer ! To put in the nutshell, it is the place to stay in Sofia !
Only stayed one night but would have definitely stayed longer if I would have had the time. Super helpful and friendly staff made it an excellent experience. Highly recommended.
Fantastic hostel - comfy, clean and great staff - really easy to meet people too. Would recommend and would definitely stay again!
Amazing hostel, we were only here for one night and absolutely loved it - wish we could have stayed. Great location just 5 mins from main square, staff were so friendly - free shots when we were playing drinking games. Kitchen is well-equipped and common area is good for meeting other travellers. Loved it!
Lived up to its hype. Extremely helpful, efficient and friendly staff. Kitchen facilities were second to none but in the end didn't use them as a very good recommendation for a traditional restaurant was made by staff. Not too far a walk from train station.
About a 15min walk from the train station. Very walkable (did it with travel bags). Good spot. Good atmosphere and very helpful staff.
we are happy for the pick up service. the staff are helpful.
I had a great time in Zagreb. This hostel was easy to get to and very clean. The staff was amazing!
Hobo Bear was one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at! The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, the kitchen was very clean and organized, the bathrooms were great as well. The common area also had a lot of character. Overall, it was an awesome place for meeting fellow travelers.
Great staff,good location,clean and good place for meeting people
Loved that we could get a free beer for singing Bratec Martin in croatian language. It is worth the effort! Hahah

Sanja is a sweetheart! Do the plitzvicka day trip with Vuku. Have a meal at Medvedgrad (spellcheck) or Kava Tava. Have cevapi from 125 Ilica. Good location and great staff!
Thank you to the staff who were very helpful, nice and welcoming. We liked the size of the hostel (small, with a family like atmosphere). Also, the room was very clean. The only drawback for us would be the fact that on our second night there, there was a group of boys who stayed in the kitchen until late and who were very noisy, so we couldn't sleep. We know it's a youth hostel and not a luxury hotel, and it's not the staff's fault, but we thought it might help to let you know.
