Welcome to the hostel that is owned and operated by backpackers. Having travelled for over 14 years we like to think we know what you want. You want a clean place to hangout, clean bathrooms, comfy beds, a bar to get white girl wasted in while not draining your bank account, fast WiFi, option of female only dorms (because guys smell) and be close to some of towns main attractions. We got you.

We have the cheapest pub crawl in town, we have beer pong competitions and events every day of the week. We know how to have a good time

Don't want to party? Fine. Enjoy a nice rest in a comfy bed on one of our three floors. Netflix and chill with your partner or a stranger if they're up for it. Check-in early if the rooms are ready or check out late if you went on the pub crawl.

Remember, we're backpackers too and love to save money on our travels. There are actually 7 ways you can stay for free at the Whole Wide World Hostel or 7 ways to get a discounted stay, but you'll have to research that. And research BEFORE you book on here.

We are close to all main attractions in Zagreb; Ban Jelacic Square, Museum Of Broken Relationships, Cathedral, Tkaciceva ulica and much more. We have the hottest and best staff minimum wage can buy. Locals who know all the nooks and crannies of this glorious town and ninjas who have travelled far and wide.

We have a fully equipped kitchen for you to cook and store food. Feel free to bring your own alcohol into the hostel (NOT the bar) and make yourself at home. Everyone is welcome here and everyone is invited to join in all activities. Its fine if you want to spend time alone or with your mates but just note that we are a very sociable hostel and we don't exclude anyone. So if you do want to join in but feel little anxious, please see one of the staff. ALL dickheads will be asked to leave!

Other shit you might want to know. Within 50 meters of our hostel there is a supermarket, ATM, Chemist, Tram stop, bakeries, restaurants and bike rental. We DO NOT have any parking unfortunately. There is street parking at a cost or there are a few car parks around the neighborhood. Please get in touch if you have questions about parking or anything else.

There are a several quality hostels in Zagreb but there are more crap ones than there are good. So if you think the World is not for you and you want some recommendations, get in touch. We have stayed at many of them and can make suggestions for your needs.

    1000% recommend this hostel!! If you wanna make amazing new people, have a party of your lifetime and just overall have so much fun. The events that are held are a great opportunity to make new friends, everyone is incredibly friendly. Great for solo traveler too. Sam especially helps makes those events run smoothly. He’s lovely and helps when you need, especially loves it if you speak to him in a NZ accent ;) Cracker is cool crazy guy, so much fun! A truly unforgettable experience, HVALA!

    Best party hostel in Zagreb! Special shout-out to all the Ninjas, especially Ricci for making my time there so great. I loved the group events every night and communal breakfast, it made it so easy to meet people as a solo traveller.

    The staff at this hostel is something else! Shout out to Iván and Sandra for the great welcoming vibe. Everyone was so friendly and kind, other guests included. If you are looking for a hostel that feels like a home full of friends, this is the one!

    There is no private villa in the 10 bed dorm I've booked and also the showers didn't have a massaging system implemented. That I could endure but when I found there was no nail polishing options in their additional service then I got really pissed. Warned the manager about this first world problem and took pictures of empty space where you can clearly see there's no massaging system in showers so others can see it too. No raw cakes, caviar or anything gluten free for breakfast. See you never!

    Had a great time staying at the hostel. Within the first night we felt like part of the Whole Wide World Hostel Family!❤️ The hostel is in a great location, there’s free breakfast and there’s always someone around if anything is needed. The atmosphere at the hostel is always fun with different activities every night, Cracker, John and the rest of the ninjas are always entertaining so there’s never a boring moment around🥳 Will definitely be coming back soon!😛

    I’ve stayed in hostels on every continent and WWW is the best I’ve ever been to. I must be honest though, my barometer for “best” is based on how social the hostel is. So if you don’t like to party, look elsewhere. When you book, make sure one of your nights is over a Thursday so you can experience the greatest game show on earth. Free breakfast, activities every night, and an in-hostel bar. What more could you ask for? Thanks to Cracker, John and Ninjas, I’ll be back! Love, American John

    Warning: this is definitely a party hostel and don't come here if you're looking for a good night's sleep. That said, great hostel with the best staff I've ever seen. They work hard and make you feel welcome during your stay. Thanks Ninjas!

    It is like living in a frat house, which is great if thats what you want. Dont always count on breakfast being ready or the bar being open. It seemed like either the staff lived there or was just unreliable. Very friendly tho, it’s just not the most professional. Rooms stink like BO, but hey you get what you pay for. Great for partying, not the best for adults.
