Property Description

250 meters from the main bus station; Welcome to one of the most sociable hostels in Zagreb. Join us for pub crawls, pancakes and The Greatest F'n Game Show Ever!' As the owner and someone who has travelled for 14 years, I take pride in ensuring that every guest in my home is treated like a mate. I'm an Australian who likes to have a good time, share some stories and drink some beers. I live in a big friggin house extremely close to Zagreb main bus station but away from the noise of the streets. The rooms are some of the most spacious you will see on your travels through Europe, I shit you not. It's one of the main reasons why I chose this house. The huge common room with 3 comfy couches, bean bags, plasma TV and fireplace allows us the space to have beer pong tournaments, play The Greatest Game Show On Earth and extra seating for when we have our family style dining. This is not a party hostel we just like to create a great experience for everyone. We still have quiet time for those wanting to get a good night sleep. For those who want to party into the night we have the cheapest pub crawl in town (1 Euro). I will gladly take you in to town myself and get you free shots at selected bars; because I’m friggin cool like that.

It might not mean much to all of you, but to the Aussies at least, we have Weet-bix, Milo and Vegemite. In our neighborhood we have everything you need; supermarket, bar, chemist, ATM, a basketball court and the tram stop that takes you to town. Some people say we are far out from the city, thats part of the reason why you get a good night’s sleep; it’s so quiet where we are. It’s only 8 minutes on the tram. You’re going to go to the city anyway, why lug all your bags in to town when you can just drop them off at the nearest hostel and then go about your day.

Please note all of what is included in the price: WI-FI, linen, towels, ticket printing, tea & coffee, Milo, Vegemite, pancakes on Tuesdays, Rakia on social nights, keyed lockers and on-site parking. Tourist tax of 7hrk per day is NOT included. This is a tax you have to pay everywhere in Croatia when staying in hostels and hotels. This gets charged at check-in.

We also have an outdoor area for barbies which we have during the summer. Great place to catch a tan and drink some ice cold beers. What else do you want to know? Oh, our showers run on gas so they’re always friggin hot, rooms have heating and air con so it’s always a comfortable temperature. There is no curfew, we have 24hr reception so you can come back late from partying, just be respectful of the other guests please. If you arrive early or leave late in the day you can leave your luggage here at no cost while you explore Zagreb: we’ll give you a map. The staff here can guide you on where to go and the cheapest options. Remember, I’m a backpacker too and love to save money on my travels. There’s actually 11 ways you can stay for free here or have a discounted stay, but you’ll have to research that. But research BEFORE you book on here.

So please, come to The Wallaby, make yourself at home and enjoy yourself.

" I really don't even know where to start with the Wallaby House. Never in my life have I stayed at a hostel where I felt so at home. This place is genuinely the best hostel I have ever stayed at in my life. Cracker is the most friendly and helpful host there is, and the atmosphere at this place couldn't be more welcoming. Thank you for the good times, see you next year. -Justin "
