Property Description

Need a break from generic hostels and commercial routines? If you’re looking for a place with sublime atmosphere, local culture & genuine hospitality, then Mali Mrak may be the place you’re looking for. Run by a couple of friends from Zagreb, we keep our hostel (and guests) passionately away from the nondescript miasma of the tourist market, are easily considered a unique spot by the travelling community and are currently hosting our 13th generation of backpackers B-)

Important Note: There's an array of lifeforms/lifestyles we don't host: 1. binge drinkers and the whole party thing - not happening here, move on, we're not the droids you're looking for. 2. People that are inherently unhappy and sour, constantly complaining (1st world problems) and offering fake smiles- we don't serve your kind here :)

· This house is the home of Fenris, a unique dog and mastermind.

• Each floor has AC, the hostel is pet and bike friendly, you have a secure garage to store in. People with cars have free parking in a safe, public area

• All beds have privacy curtains and individual power sockets

• The house features 3 kitchens, one of them a huge outdoors kitchen located in our vibrant, green garden. You can even cook there while it’s raining.

Food is good and affordable in town, but cooking is a lovely thing and brings people together, so make good use of it :)

• If you're visiting in late summer/early autumn, the garden is giving an abundance of grapes - you're free to pick them as you sit, as they literally grow over our heads.

• Bring padlocks, we provide the lockers + there's a safe for specific things if you feel the need

The House itself is organic, cosy, and full of details, we do everything local and handmade, with lovely clean dorms that are constantly upgraded and decorated, you won’t see mass produced boutique crap here.

We're not fans of commercial tourism and our culture of hosting is a counterpoint – we consider travelling an exchange that is more than just getting people drunk on pub crawls and peddling rubbish schemes. We don’t sell alcohol (feel free to bring your own, ask for recommendations, Croatia is wine country and the beer culture is budding) but pour good local wine and Turkish coffee daily for you, compliments of the house - you’re really welcome to have a good time here as long as you know how to drink and stay respectful (see caveat above, we're not a party hostel and, to make a point fyi - in all of 2017, one guest puked B-))

About us: We handle things in an honest and spontaneous way, the sense of community has high value here and as long as you respect the house and the people in and around it, you’re considered part of the fold and you’ll have all our knowledge, resources and experience at your disposal. Common sense and efficient solutions are favoured here and if you appreciate such things then you’re welcome to hop aboard.

Things to do besides exploring the city (we’ll cover you with smooth local insight anyway, all of us are native to Zagreb and make it a point you really see the city if you are interested)

- Lots of hiking here, we’ve got a mountain in our backyard :) Ask for recommendations or join us if a group comes together

- Bike tours, Zagreb has great areas for that and we have really nice routes in store.

- Introduction to the specific market culture of the city. Something precious in this day and age. For all who are interested, ask and join me /Igor/ on a market day (it’s a bike tour, we provide FREE use of bicycles for that, you’re welcome. Ask, it’s a pleasure)

- More, but it’s a secret.

Additional perks & special abilities:

- Left handed people get a discount (yes, it’s not a joke. Why? Figure it out, Sherlock :))

- Ambience plays a huge role here (a collection of 50+ lamps graces the house).

- Since we support artists (residencies available, ask!), don’t be surprised if you stumble upon the occasional concert, a jazz school of singers or a poetry evening.

- The longest stay at the house was 3 years, the shortest 5 minutes.

- You can rent bikes, and if you’re staying longer (4+ days) they’re free.

- Wi-Fi is sexy fast, 24/7

- We offer really good prices for travellers who wish to stay longer in Zagreb, especially in off season. Ask!

Location: Read the directions here on Hostelworld on how to find us, they’re easy and precise. We are not central if that's a thing for you. We prefer to stay outside the tourist zone and yet have quick access to the city centre - we're located in an ordinary, safe neighbourhood and Zagreb has an excellent, 24/7 public transportation system that connects you directly from the hostel to everywhere else, you’ll need 15 min by tram to the centre. Make sure you buy the cheaper tram tickets (4 kn or 0.5€, inside the tram @driver), it's very affordable and actually a cool thing to support public. Closest hiking spot is 15 minutes from the hostel on foot, but Zagreb has many other locations as well, we can help with that.

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.

Please note:

The City Tax (10 kn per person per night ) 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 for the state 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 a 4% bank fee is applied! View House Rules

    Very cool place, far from town but in a unique neighborhood with easily accessible and fast public transportation. Igor and the rest of the staff gave the best recommendations and treat you like real people, which doesn’t always happen at hostels. The hostel itself had the coolest decorations, was clean, and all the staff and guests were friendly and easy to talk to. I will definitely go back if I find myself in Zagreb again!

    Igor runs an absolute gem of a hostel that served as a home for us during our stay there. The place is clean as can be, it has a gorgeous little garden that people at the hostel use to cook breakfast, relax, and meet each other, and Igor himself gives out personalized recommendations tailored to what you'd like to do each day and night. I'd honestly consider coming back to Croatia just to stay here!

    Absolutely loved my stay at Mali Mrak Hostel. The facilities are fantastic, amazing kitchen, heaps of space and everything was so clean which I really appreciated. On top of that, Igor really went out of his way to ensure that I had lots of information about Zagreb and gave me detailed instructions on how to get places and he genuinely cared. By far the best hostel I have stayed at. Felt like home. Thanks to Igor and the team!

    Excellent hostel - the team running it are the best: Igor wouldn’t let us go out without giving us recommendations and the communication is 10/10. The artwork everywhere creates a real quirky environment. Really relaxing atmosphere under the grapevines and good conversation. Also a super green hostel promoting environmental awareness!! 5 minute walk to the tram, which is cheap and goes to the town centre. Will definitely stay here next time we’re in Zagreb!

    Igor, Petris and Fenris were fantastic hosts and endlessly helpful. Never fear that you wont have anything to do in Zagreb as they have always gotcha covered. Igor was also very nice and went out of his way to help finding me some other hostels to potentially volunteer at and convinced me to continue travelling through the Balkans. Cannot reccomend enough. Steve.

    Such a great place! I felt at home and at ease! Igor, Petra, and the volunteers were super welcoming and helpful. Enjoyed my 3 night stay! It’s a bit far from the city center, but only 5 minutes from the tram. Would def stay here again if ever I’m in Zagreb!

    Cool vibe here. Sort of a progressive hippie feel. Definitely not a party hostel. A little far from downtown, but public transport close. Igor is a cool dude and went out of his way to give us some tips for our short time in Zagreb. Turning the A/C off at night was a major bummer, the room got stifling hot and made it difficult to sleep. Overall, a nice and chill hostel with everything you would need.

    I loved this hostel. I needed an easy going but social environment to regroup and this is exactly what I got. As a solo female traveller I felt safe, and security at the property was good with great sized lockers and curtains on beds. Loved the outdoor kitchen and common space which was great for socialising with staff and guests and music was always playing. Supermarket is close and staff were very helpful. A bit further out of town but worth it! Will stay here when I come back to Zagreb!
