Property Description

Welcome to Mali Mrak, the oldest hostel in town, run by a couple of friends from Zagreb (Ivana, Filip, Igor and Tonči). Our location is perfect if you prefer to stay outside the touristy zone and yet have quick access to the city center (15 min by tram, 400m from the tram station) - Zagreb has an excellent, 24/7 public transportation system. This allows us to have a beautiful garden with an outdoors kitchen (you’re encouraged to check the photos), all of which create a unique spot to meet other travelers and spend memorable days in a cozy, uncomplicated & personal setting.

update: **Season 2016 is mostly done by now, folks. Looks like an indian summer though, which means a beautiful fade into early autumn. The grapes are ripe in the garden, the weather is nice, it will be a very enjoyable and pleasant time here :) The minimum number of nights to book is set to 2 currently, drop by if that's fine with you!**

**IMPORTANT NOTE : Our house is NOT a party hostel. Spoiled & disrespectful people are not welcome. Outdoors areas close at 22:00 for louder people due to croatian residential laws. Inside common areas shut down at 02:00 !

Please read more about the house and it’s specifics below, study the reviews (there’s 1500+ on this page alone), to get an idea what to expect. Thanks & maybe we see each other :)

The house is warm, cozy (think organic), clean and well organised. It features many common spaces with a pleasant atmosphere, including two kitchens, of which one is outdoors in our nice summer garden (see pics). The hostel is also a constantly changing ambience & art project, with rooms that have all been hand made, combining aestethics and practicality. Things at Mali Mrak are done in an efficient, honest and spontaneous way, where community, common sense, talks and exchanges of ideas are valued. As long as you respect the house and the people in and around it, you’ll have all our knowledge, resources and experience at your disposal, for planning your route through the balkans or anything else we can help you with. Our place is also good if you just want to have a quiet time on your own, bothered by no one, to do your own thing.

TRAVEL ADVICE: we're available for you if you need advice prior (or after leaving us) to your arrival in Zagreb, regarding travelling, planning etc. I strongly recommend that you make use of this, contact us anytime - it's a pleasure to help, ask anything that interests you because it will help to save money, use your time better, avoid the traps and so on. We've helped many improve their trip, so use the opportunity :)

Here's a list of things specific for the house:
• really good local food available from a nearby place, excellent prices also. Ask us, we order frequently for ourselves!
• left handed people get a discount ;)
• free coffee/tea
• you can hop with us around Zagreb when time and weather permit it
• Sexy, fast, fiber optics internet
• (free) yoga sessions in summer (igor) *currently n/a due to injury !*
• free bikes for guests who stay longer, Zagreb is excellent for bike tours and you’re welcome to join us, they’re free (we share what bikes we have, if a
bigger group comes together, we’ll look up one of the rentals in town, prices are usually between 10-13€).
• nice local wine available, not for sale, but rather for free ;)
• visit some jazz bars with Filip
• community dinners, after a market day (see below) - ask us on time, this takes time to organize
• people who are interested in local culture are most welcome to join us on a market day - it’s a lovely event and one of the genuine local things to experience
• if you're into hiking, let us know – the area around Zagreb is very nice, and we frequently go together.
• special note to rpg fans: Numenera & Planescape sessions available, ask at reception!
• We can give you invaluable insider advice on Zagreb and Croatia to plan your trips and avoid the traps and bad places, helping you along is part of what we love to do - just ask, don’t be shy!

And so on, we also suggest that you browse some of the numerous reviews on the web to get confirmation of what and how we do things here, the travelling community has its own perspective. What follows is information of a more practical nature. Thanks for reading!

LOCATION: READ THE DIRECTIONS ON HOSTELWORLD on how to find us, they’re easy and precise. We're located in an ordinary, safe and quiet neighborhood, 15 minutes away by tram from the city center, as well as 15 minutes walking from the nature park 'Grmošćica', located on the foothills of Medvednica, the local mountain. Good if you like hiking & nature.
For those who are traveling on a budget and have certain skills- if you can and feel like it, feel free to contribute /upgrade the house in a specific way - we love that (you’ll notice a ton of stuff people have done here) - create something and in return you can get a discount or a free stay. You certainly wouldn't be the first, and we are known to support travelers in many more ways than just giving convenient bed prices. Contact us via email for details on that.

The City Tax (7kn per person per night or cca. 1€) is not included in the room price you book online. We have to charge it in any case, and since many wonder what that is, here goes: it's not something any hostel makes up, it's just that - a city tax that goes to the state of Croatia, a way to make money. We must charge it, and keep it separately because of account keeping, so we rather choose not to incorporate it into the bed price (that means: raising that same price for said amount and proclaim 'no additional tax') and charge it separately and show it on your bill.

CARDS are accepted, but the 3% bank fee is paid by You, not the hostel!

That's all, folks, see you maybe!

" Of course it is not the closest one to town, but it's not really far. It's a hostel with an atmosphere. Not your typical commercial hostel. It's more like a house full of friends. They will tell you everything you need to know about Zagreb and will help as much as they can to make your stay enjoyable. Very nice hostel. Felt like home. "
