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.
Really nice hostel.The people that work there are really nice and helpfull .
Great atmosphere and very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend to anyone visiting Zagreb. In a fantastic location in the center of town. The private room was excellent with great facilities. Excellent experience with Swanky Mint.
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
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.
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.
Very good location, clean room and helpful staff. Would recommend!
Great atmosphere, would stay again, dorm beds were quite private, good lockers
We had such a great time. So much so we have been back twice. The staff are so firendly anf helpful. Always there to help plan your next stop. Bar was chill and the kitchen is the best of any hostel anywhere.

This hostel is the bomb!!! Loved it, staff were so nice + atmosphere was great.
Everything was perfect. Hard to leave.
The bar at the hostel was awesome, the staff were great, and the other guests were an amazing group of people. I would highly recommend this hostel.
Amazing place, love the staff. The bar is always packed, great location. Especially love Olly.
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.
The staff at Swanky Mint were excellent, helpful, warm, and friendly.
