It gets our thumbs up for consistently high guest reviews.

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

    The hostel is a short tram ride out of the city in a quiet location. The outdoor area is covered with a magnificent vine giving protection from the sun. The kitchen is well stocked. We stayed in a private room up in the attic. A very cool space with a private lounge area that is fully air conditioned. The hosts Igor and Petra were amazing and very knowledgeable giving great recommendations for their city. Loved our time and the great sociable guests just helped our stay. Highly recommend

    Stay here! It’s an excellent choice. The atmosphere is amazing (beautiful outdoor kitchen, art and murals on every wall). Igor is extremely friendly and helpful- you’ll love him and he’ll make you feel at home. -there are large lockers for your things -the facilities are cleaned regularly. -the common area has a great atmosphere and it’s easy to meet people. The hostel is far from the city center, but so close to a tram which you can take to and from the bus station and into town!

    This place was fantastic. The location outside of the busy center made it a quiet Oasis. Igor and staff were so welcoming, and you can tell they live working there. It was easy to meet other travelers, and I'd be happy to go back again.

    A wonderful, warm environment and Igor makes sure you feel welcome and prepared to explore the city/region. Out of the bustle of downtown, but easy to get into the city. Extremely clean and has a relaxed communal atmosphere.

    Igor was an absolutely fantastic host and went out of his way to show you the city. While this might not be a party hostel by any means, it was very chill and had a great atmosphere. I would definitely stay here again

    Had a great couple of nights here. One of the most memorable hostel experiences I’ve had during my several weeks travelling. There are great facilities, but what makes this hostel such a chill place to stay is the people. Igor himself is such a nice person who genuinely cares about making sure you have a great time in Zagreb. If you are looking for a hostel to have a relaxed time then this is the place to stay and meet like-minded people. Also really easy to get to the centre of the city.

    A lovely and unique hostel for travellers in search of a home away from home. Igor truly cares about those who come to stay in this hostel and will prove this with endless tips on the city, interesting conversation and a handshake upon meeting and parting. The most welcoming and personable accommodation I have yet to experience. This hostel is excellent and holds such personality!
