Brilliant hostel, couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Zagreb. Small enough to really meet the other guests and go out together. We would definitely come back!


Two of us stayed in the private twin. It is in a separate building to the rest of the hostel and is in quite a nice apartment with a decent kitchen. The other occupants kept to themselves which was fine as we were pretty busy. Nice place and happy with our stay.


Stayed for one night. The staff are awesome and will help you with anything you need. Location is central and close to the squares, shopping and bars. Well equipped kitchen and a good common area. I would stay here again if I ever return to Zagreb.


The hostel is pretty nice. About 10 mins walk from the centre and all the things to do.


Great hostel in a nice part of Zagreb. Very friendly staff


It was a very pleasant stay, with a very clean kitchen. It is about a 10/15minute walk from the centre very easy to reach and very close to the nearest tramstop. Not many bathrooms so occasionally had to wait for a shower but didn't really find this a problem when we were there. The staff were really helpful and the internet was really good!


super cute small hostel. great staff.


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.


We had a great stay here. The Hobo Bear is a perfect size and has a lovely common room for meeting people and having a beer in the evening. The fact that the main common room area closes at around midnight is also good for ensuring there isn't too much noise late into the night. Staff friendly and knowledgable. Rooms fairly comfortable though very hot- if the hostel could just invest in a few more fans to help ventilate the rooms (which only have tiny windows) then the place would be perfect.


Malheureusement nous ne sommes restées qu'une seule nuit dans cette auberge mais rien à redire, accueil super et chambre propre et ventilée. Proche du centre de Zagreb. Unfortunately we stayed only single night in this hostel but nothing to add, great welcome and clean and ventilated room. Close to the center of 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.


Location was good and the hostel is clean and comfortable. There is a great common room which makes it easy to meet other travellers. Would definitely go back.


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 !


Great hostel, i enjoyed it very much!


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.
