Property Description

Hi folks, Mali Mrak is a house run by a couple of friends from Zagreb (Ivana, Filip, Igor and Tonči). We've been running the hostel for 10 years now, so you won't be coming just to a hostel, but also a home. Please read a bit about the place before deciding to book and check at least some of the reviews to get an idea how we do things here - we're not really fans of commercial hostel routines, so it will be worth the extra effort :)

Think of the house as warm, cozy, 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). It’s 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. The 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.

**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, exceptions are completely possible :D ! **

LOCATION: READ THE DIRECTIONS ON HOSTELWORLD on how to find us, they’re easy and precise.

Our location is perfect if you prefer to stay outside the touristy zone and yet have quick access to the city center - we're located in an ordinary, safe and quiet neighborhood (15 min by tram to center, 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. 15 minutes walking from here is the nature park 'Grmošćica', located on the foothills of Medvednica, the local mountain. Good if you like hiking & nature.

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.
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)
• 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!

Oye! - 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!

" This hostel was wonderful! I'm traveling in the off-season so there weren't many travelers, but the people that were at the hostel were lovely - one playing wonderful acoustic guitar in the common area. Everything was clean, Igor gave phenomenal tourist activity & sightseeing advice, and the accommodations had everything I needed: sufficient kitchen, good bathroom, computers if you want to use them, etc. Plus phenomenal art and inspiration around the house! Highly recommend! "
