A great place where the owners greeted us with kindness and good humour. The entire place was spotless. I would highly recommend it!

Functional without being spectacular.

This hostel had great potential, the rooms were clean, the security was great, the look and feel of the place was good, and it was easy to get to. However, when we first arrived the owner started shouting at another guest and asked him to leave, because he was on eating on the steps, not the best first impression. The place was also covered in signs telling us to do things. The beds also made a horrible night when you move, there was no curtain and the toilet did not lock. Needs improvements.

Great hostel! Very friendly and helpful staff. Location a little bit out of centre, but very easy to reach by tram (or even walk) and located in a quiet neighbourhood, so that wasn't a problem at all.

We arrived without Kuna, so they charged us an high exchange rate. When we asked for explanations told us that in our booking it was clearly written that the exchange rate is up to the hostel. True that. BUT UNFORTUNATELY, in our booking it was also written"PRIVATE ENSUITE BATHROOM", when we had an external bathroom that everybody in our stair was using - it was the only one with working lights. First day a girl in the shower, second day somebody used all the toilet paper. What did I pay for???

Dear travelers, well, it does say in our description bathrooms are private but external, you were not reading. Only you had the key and you didnt lock the bathroom, on each floor we also have two more shared bathrooms, in one light was broken for one hour and than was fixed. Exchange rate is different here in Croatia for Euro to Kuna than in some other country, and in your confirmation says that payment is in Croatian Kuna up front, and payment in Euro is only a favor to you. Happy travels

Very close to the bus station and easy enough to find! Facilities are very basic- small bathroom, must pay extra for lockers, don't think there's a kitchen, etc. Apparently breakfast is provided but I left too early for this. Wifi didn't always work.

Easy to find, and approximately 15-20 minutes walk from Main bus station. Tram 6 takes you from hostel to city center in about 10 minutes. Atmosphere is good. Hostel offers trip to Plitvice. A major remark is that our beds were terribly noisy.

Not so close to city center but reachable easily by tram. For the rest everything is ok

This place was actually great! The couple who owns it was so accommodating. The room was small but not too stuffy , at least. They closed the communal room at 11 which kinda sucked because there is only wifi there. But the highlight of our time there was the trip to plitvice; we were only three so the owner agreed to drive us there personally. The plitice park was packed solid so it wasn't very enjoyable, but the swimming in the river afterwards more than made up for it and they gave beer too!

Excellent value for money and the staff is very friendly and helpful and there is a nice social atmosphere. The only criticism we had was the price of beer and food. Its a shame because marco provides a fantastic hang out space but the pricing is prohibitive and you can't drink your own booze... There are cheap places around the corner though so still awesome.

Dear traveler, we are happy if you liked us and the hostel,but- we have a bar and provide you food and drinks.All drinks are in range of prices one to two Euro,BBQ is always fresh prepared,few kinds of meet,vegetable,bread... and we have different prices,small and big meal,four to nine Euro.As every bar and in the world, we also mind if you try to bring in your own drinks,we put lots of effort every day to please everyone and its ok to have the opinion,but realistic one Happy travels

Great little hostel; very good value for money. Owners very helpful with local information. There is a nice little communal area if socializing is your thing. Good wifi signal all over building. Certainly one of the better hostels I have stayed in.

We chose the hostel plainly because of the trip to plitvice lakes! The day trip there was amazing and the extra trip marko takes you on to go swimming was incredible!! The hostel had such a nice atmosphere, really friendly and social.. They welcome you in as part of their family and offer so much more than any other hostel weve stayed at - would absolutely stay there again and definitely recommend to anyone!

The place was very small, they only had a few rooms and it was not very clean to me. The Staff was not nice at all and they were moping around on everything we did, as if we were annoying others but that was not the thing at all. Our departure date we had to catch a train at 11 pm but the women of the Staff sent us away at 9 because we "were bothering other guests". I got a really unpleasant feeling of this hostel and it made me think of Zagreb in a worse way.

Dear travelers, very untrue comment.So,you pay 11 Euro-got free breakfast,free welcome drink, true-we determine the price and facilities but you get to leave your luggage till 8 pm, same for everyone,and that is not enough? No one told you you are bothering others,we told you at 9 pm that you were checked out and can not use our facilities any more and its not fair if your spoiled temper affects us, Zagreb and Croatia, next time book a hotel. Besides, we have 50 beds- small? Happy travels

A bit off but very safe, the area felt very convenient and safe overall. One you know where to go it's less than 10 minutes to walk. The rooms are a bit small for my taste, but everything was clean. Free BBQ in the evening and a free welcome drink (the rum was finished though). Absolutely lovely staff, the couple who runs the place were very friendly, outgoing and welcoming.

I normally don't do reviews, but the staff was so nice to us and they truly went the extra mile to make our stay a nice one. So hostel Lika, thank you.

I loved my stay at Hostel Lika, the staff was so nice and caring. I did the day trip to Plitvice Lakes that the hostel organized, it was totally awesome! The next time I am in Zagreb, I will stay at Lika again!

I've stayed in many hostels, and this is by far one of the best ones! It is located very close to the central bus station, it's like a 5-8min walk and a 15-20min walk to the center. There's also a tram that can take you there, public transportation is very good. The facilities were clean, the mattresses very comfortable, and the owners are extremely friendly! They remember your name and treat you like family! There's no kitchen, but breakfast is included in the morning.

We really want to thank you and everyone to recognize our love for this kind of job, we are doing it for almost 10 years and still enjoy it :) Happy travels.

The staff were lovely, friendly and helpful. They encouraged people to mix and socialise. The quiet time was quite rigorously enforced which was great if you had an early start. Although a little way out of town it is on a very convenient tram route.
