We love this Hostel!

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 14th 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 (12 kn per person per night ) is now included in the room price you book online, except for Non-refundable bookings - the card amount that can be charged will be the bed price minus the city tax which will be charged on spot once you are here. 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 more money. It can also be called highway robbery :D

Cards are accepted, but a 4% bank fee is applied! View House Rules

    I LOVED it here, the owner was an INCREDIBLE host and always had information for us on where to go. It's definitely the kind of place you should go if you want a genuine experience of Zagreb and understanding Croatian culture. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Zagreb and will remember my experience forever!!

    This may have been one of my favorite hostels I’ve ever stayed in. It feels more like a home than a hostel. Igor is so incredibly kind and will provide you PLENTY of recommendations for anything you may want to do. The kitchen facilities are also fantastic, everything you will need to cook will be there. If I’m in Zagreb again I will not stay anywhere else.

    I can't write anything that hasn't already been said in previous reviews, but Igor and Mali Mrak were a delight. I wish every hostel provided such a peaceful and friendly environment. If I ever have the good fortune of returning to Zagreb, I know where I'll be staying.

    Igor and his hostel was the perfect start to my vacation post-covid. It is located just far enough from the city center that you are able to really relax and ease into the vacation mindset. The kitchen is located out back in a vine-covered garden with 2 communal benches. There is everything you need to make a meal and plenty of storage/fridge space for everyone. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, providing many tips for the city. I would definitely recommend staying here.

    Wow what an atmosphere. The host Igor is a great guy, enjoys spending time with the travellers and gives you great advice what to see and do. Easygoing people in the Hostel. Comfy bed, showers and toilets are good and clean. Lockers are provided for you. Locationwise it's a little outside the city. 5 Minutes walk to the trainstation where you have a tram to the city center every 10-15 minutes. Tramtickets are very cheap (4 kuna per ride). It's in a quite and safe neighbourhood
