Wow! It really lives up to its name. A lovely hostel, modern but quirky in an awesome location, the hostel bar is a proper bar used more frequently by locals than guests which made for a fun atmosphere. Would recommend.

Staff is very friendly and caring. Popular bar downstairs. Good place to start evening!

Pro's: almost everything! Fantastic, friendly, helpful staff; secure hostel & lockers; centrally located; warmest welcome; excellent mutual spaces; incredibly clean rooms/toilets etc.; cheap bar; ridiculously good value for money! Felt like being at home w/ family! Con's: none really, just things to note. There's only 1 toilet & 2 showers per gender per floor, so probably busy in summer. Also, bar is popular w/ locals so expect crowds, especially in high season. Also no washing machine.

Hi! Thank you for your review and all this nice words! It makes us happy that you liked it here that much! :) Everyone is doing their best to make all this happen! :) As for con's.. Yea, toilets get a bit busy in high season but it's not a problem cause all the folks are outside, enjoying Zagreb or chilling on terrace, not staying inside. As for crowded bar.. We love that actually, the more the merrier, and it's always a party here! :D We really liked having you guys here! Hope you are enjoying the rest of your travelings before going back! It you'll be in Zagreb again, visit us! :) Cheers!

One of the best hostels i've ever been to. I really like the industrial style interior. Location is more than perfect. In the hostel you have a very cool bar and there is also a place with a guitar to hang out, eat and drink ice cold beer. :)

Fantastic hostel! Staff was all amazing, all facilities were clean, and the aesthetic of the place was super cool. The breakfast options were great and cheap (but good quality), and there's a free coffee machine in the kitchen which is awesome. Really enjoyed my stay here.

I never usually bother with writing hostel reviews but Swanky Mint was so good I had to leave one. Perfect hostel if you're into meeting other backpackers and looking for an intimate hostel experience. One of those rare hostels that don't feel touristy as daily night events at the hostel bar attract a healthy mix of backpackers and Croatian punters. The staff and volunteers were the highlight though. Shout out to Olly, Pedro, Quetz, and hard-working MVP Andy for being awesome. Also free coffee

Oh we are than very flattered that you wrote us a review! And what a review! We really try to make this as better as possible for our guests, because we don't want Swanky hostel to be just a place to sleep but a place that will make your visit to Zagreb memorable! So we are more than happy to read that you like everything we do around here, and because of that we will keep trying and trying to make this place a home :) And we are very lucky to have such an awesome volunteers here! They are really big help to us and they are great hosts! Really hope you see you here again, it was a pleasure to have you with us!

Staff was amazing and so helpful! Great location, fun vibes, would have loved a common area to hang out in that was not the bar but overall a great hostel.

People of Swanky family is fun (you probably saw that on our parties) and with our awesome guests here we are trying to have fun and positive vibes! :) Common area actually exists and you must have spend time there.. It's in the same place as kitchen is :D Hope this wasn't your last time in Zagreb, so hope to see you here again! Cheers! :)

I cannot say enough good about Swanky Mint. They should receive a 10 star rating. It is a very special and unique place. A very interesting old industrial building has been transformed into a quirky style of hostile. Staff and guests become like family members. I saw a guest depart in tears because she was so sad to leave Swanky Mint. The very best hostel that I have visited in my travels in north America and Europe. I highly recommend Swanky Mint and I will certainly return.

One of the best hostels we stayed at. Bar is always busy, great staff, free coffee, and well equipped kitchen. Take the tour to plot vice lakes and abandon air hanger offer from the hostel. It was fantastic and the highlight of Of stay in Zagreb.

Overall good hostel but some things that I found problematic: the toilet paper - it's not a roll of toilet paper, it's Kimberley Clark napkins out of a little dispenser. 2) I understand the attempt to be eco friendly but the lights in the shower/toilet should stay on longer than 5 minutes.. Guests would rather not wipe their ass or shower in the dark. Anyways, asides from that the staff are solid and I met some cool people here.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Sorry you didn't like our toilet paper that much! hahaha sorry but that is actually quite funny :))) Some like it, some don't. If you visit us again we'll make sure that this little toilet napkins never get in front of your eyes! As for the lights... Little romantic- lights out atmosphere doesn't do you wrong right? ;) Besides, it very easy to turn them on again. Anyway, thank you for your review! Cheers! :)
