Great hostel! Loved the lounge area. Staff were helpful. Good location
I loved this hostel. It has a cool vibe. It's small and homey and the staff are fantastic. I would recommend this and stay here again. The only con was the weird uncomfortable pillows.
Great place for the night, wished we had stayed longer in Zagreb. Instructions from the bus station were so clear we had no trouble at all getting to the hostel. Staff were lovely and room was clean ! Would stay here again for sure.
Not the best hostel if you want to have a good night of sleep. The rooms were small and very hot. Also the matras and pillow aren't very helpful. Maybe useful if you wet yourself, but not comfortable. The atmosphere in the hostel is good. I liked the common area. Also the girls at the reception are very friendly and welcoming.
Good location and everybody is really helpfull NO AIR CONDITIONER, its imposible to sleep and there are no space to put the bags.
Staff was excellent, helpful and in great mood. We felt very welcome and had a wonderful time at the hobo bear hostel. It is located quite central only 5-10 minutes from the upper town.
We loved the location and staff were amazing. Maybe you should have more shower rooms.
We booked this hostel because it was voted number one in Croatia in 2014. There was nothing wrong with it, it just wasn't anything to write home about. Our expectations, as a result, were very high and were not fulfilled. The pillow's in the rooms were basically non existent and the beds were covered in plastic which was a bit annoying.
Loved the hostel. The staff was brilliant and the hostel was very trendy and friendly. The only problem was the absence of ventilation/fans in the rooms, which can be quite an issue during the summers. Overall very fun place - love the happy hours and the main hall room.
Great staff that are more than happy to help. Very nice interior. If I have to give one flaw its that our beds weren't that comfy.
Nice hostel, great location! The pillows were horrible though. They could use some more bathrooms too. The atmosphere wasn't bad but not great either. Maybe they should have like a wine or a game evening for people to get to know each other a bit.

Really helpful staff. Very quiet hostel. Good kitchen but smallish rooms.
Good location, clean. Could not sleep for 3 nights---- no airflow, no AC, even when the window was open, no wind could get in due to where the window and room were located. One tiny fan for an entire room of 10-12 (can't remember), which didn't project at all.
Only here for one night, but it was a great location and the staff are excellent and exceedingly knowledgeable and helpful. The lack of air conditioning made for a rough night in our room during a heat wave though. Otherwise, great accommodations. Highly recommend if you're visiting Zagreb during more temperate weather (:
Very nice hostel with great stuff located into the city center of Zagreb. There one only one issue with it - DO NOT GO THERE IN HOT SUMMER NIGHT....the hostel doesn't have air conditioning and one of the rooms (4 persons) is not only hot....it's sauna during the night. Few people didn't sleep at all during the night I was there, to be more "comfortable" the mathresses are packed in some kind of plactic things that make the heat even more brutal. Otherwise good hostel for the money and location.
The hostel is pretty ok and very well located. I can confirm other commentators statements that it is not clear why the hostel should have won that much prices and awards. It is good, but nothing special. Location is quite good. And the staff indeed very friendly and helpful. I recommend staying there but there are definitely more special hostels out there!
One of the best hostels i ever visited. Very nice staff, a lovely place to stay, central location, clean bathroom, good wifi-connection. Everything was really great and not far from perfect. If i been in Zagreb again, the Hobo Bear will be my place to go hosteling.
I think Hobo Bear is a great place, the staff is excellent, and the facilities are good. The only thing I would like to mention, is that there were some maintenance issues (e.g. bunk bed ladder was loose) that need to be attended. Otherwise all was well.
