Wonderful hostel. Great location, super sweet and friendly staff. Wifi strongest in reception/bar area, but can be reached a bit in the rooms. Lockers big enough for your large backpack/medium suitcase. Didn't love Zagreb but if I come back, coming back here! Easy to get to from airport/bus/train station.


Great place, staff, location, super clean


Staff are fantastic and the location is perfect, right in the city centre. Literally my only gripe was the air con wasn't very efficient and it was very hot when we were there but everything else was top drawer and superb value for money. Would definitely stay again.

The rooms and toilets were too small.


The staff were really friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and modern. Unfortunately the air conditioning have yet to be turned on but we were given a fan so it wasn't too hot. The hostel is hard to find by car as it is in a pedestrian zone! The hostel is only a short walk to the main sights and some lovely restaurants and bars.

Great location, just between the upper and lower town. There wasn't much of a common room area, I think maybe there is when it is tourist season though? Everyone at the desk was extremely nice and helpful. Very modern and clean. Maybe too modern...all the electric locks on the doors and lockers were VERY loud when people came in at night...but other than that, I would definitely stay here again!


Very good hostel! Strongly recomend!!!


Staff was friendly and the location is perfect, just within a walking distance to the city's main buildings. Rooms were clean and had enough space.


Friendly staff, very clean and modern place, the private room is like a hotel room just filled with Ikea furniture. The breakfast wasn't anything special. Wifi was fine. No bar or events planned by the staff, more like a hotel than a hostel. Very clean place, good air-condition and security, very good location. If you want to travel cheap with someone and want to be in the center then it is the perfect place, but if you travel alone and want to experience stuff and meet other people, then not.


Fantastic location, good facilities, I would return.


Had a really great time staying in here. I must say the staff here were FANTASTIC, very helpful. And for a spot so close to the hotspots, it's lovely and peaceful at night time. No issues sleeping. And a great cevap place out front :) Have great memories of this hostel and Zagreb as a result of my 3 nights here. Will definitely return :)


Very friendly and helpful staff. Brilliant location. Clean and spacious dorms. Fantastic time had, definitely recommend.


Very nice hostel. Will recommend it to all my friends. Lovely staff. Very helpful. 100%!!! Excellent!!


Really lovely hostel. Futuristic locking mechanisms. Clean bathrooms.


Amazing stay here! Great location and staff.


I got there clos to midnight and they were waiting for me. The staff was cool and friendly. The entire Hostel is modern and secure. Great place! It is located in the heart of Zagreb so, you are right there... Close to the train station and at a walking distance of main attractions. I was there on a museum weekend, free entry and open till 1am... Cool? yeah!


A very chic hostel in the center of Zagreb. We really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms are great and very clean. Unfortunately, we were there in the winter and didn't get to enjoy drinks in the courtyard bar. Will stay here again next time I'm in Zagreb.
