Property Description

Hi folks, we’re 4 friends (Ivana, Filip, Igor & Tonči) from Zagreb and Mali Mrak is our idea of hosting people, though the true masters of the place are our two dogs, Žužu & Fenris. We love having travellers at our house and have turned it into a lifestyle. You’re welcome to experience our way of hospitality this year, the 10th since we opened the house to backpackers.
The hostel itself is warm, cosy, organic, clean and well organised, full of artwork and many contributions from all around the world. There are many common spaces, great for meeting and hanging out with other travellers or to just do your own thing. We also have two kitchens, one if which is outside in our beloved summer garden, the main hub of activity during good weather, where we spend the season with you.
If you’re a coffee addict, look no further, we’ll make you endless quantities of good, Turkish coffee (free, of course). We also got lovely local Croatian wines for you to try (free, of course).
[Random perk: left handed people get a discount]
Communal cooking & dinners are a favourite thing here, so let us know in advance if you’re interested – the food is crowd funded and requires a level of organisation, including a bike trip to a local farmer’s market (outside of the ‘tourist’ zone) with me (Igor) and Fenris (Space dog). We supply the bikes and require no payment for the trip.
Make sure you check the pictures and see what we have done with the space of the place!
Other stuff you should know: we like to handle things in an efficient, personal, honest and spontaneous way, value community, common sense, talks and exchanges of ideas. 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.

**IMPORTANT NOTE: Our house is NOT a party hostel. Disrespectful people are not welcome. **

LOCATION: READ THE DIRECTIONS HERE ON HOSTELWORLD on how to find us, they’re easy and precise. Don’t book if you’re the type to complain about location, we are not central! Our location is good if you prefer to stay outside the tourist zone and yet have quick access to the city centre - we're located in an ordinary, safe neighbourhood. Zagreb has an excellent, 24/7 public transportation system that connects you directly from the hostel to everywhere else, you’ll need 10-15 min by tram to the centre. Closest hiking spot is 15 minutes from the hostel on foot, but Zagreb has many other locations as well, the city is great for hiking.

TRAVEL ADVICE: we're available for you if you need advice prior (or after leaving us) to your arrival in Zagreb, regarding travelling, planning, avoiding traps 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.
Other useful things for you:
• Sexy-fast, fiber optics internet
• free bikes for guests who stay longer (3+ days), 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€).
• visit some jazz bars with Filip on specific evenings
• 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!

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, free food and/or stay. You certainly wouldn't be the first, and we are known to support travellers 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!

" Awesome hidden away place to be and the city center is only a 15 bus ride away :-) staff gave awesome recommendations and made you really feel welcome into their little family atmosphere. I loved the hangout space on the top floor and the Sin City comics in the bathrooms were pretty entertaining :-). I had an excellent stay, recommended for those who like the quite life and to hang out in an awesome location with really chill people. "
