We stayed here as part of a large group. The staff were friendly and the accommodation very comfortable. The location is only 5 minutes from the shops, so close by to explore the city. If I returned to Croatia, I would stay here again.

The hostels' staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were a bit cramped, we didn't have much space for the luggage, I was lucky because, being only with friends in the dorm, we were more comfortable moving eachother's stuff around. There was only 2 showers (1 for men, 1 for women) on the bottom floor, and I don't know if...

Was really unexpected - we booked on the same day as we had a change of plans. It was cheap so we didn't expect much. We ended up having an excellent room in an apartment across the street from the hostel. Big kitchen and air conditioning. Met so many cool people here too would definately recommend :)

The staff were so kind, no matter how busy they were. It was nice to get some free Rakiya shots and also, there was a happy hour from 9-11pm and the beer would be half price 6HRK. The kitchen was also well equipped. I think that I would definitely stay again if | go to Zagreb. :)

We stayed in the private dorm. It was all pretty good, clean, hot water. The mattress is pretty thin and the window looks directly out to street level so not much privacy lol. They could do with more bathrooms since I had to wait a little to shower at night but overall a good hostel to stay at

Wasn't expecting much from Zagreb; it was just a sort of stop-over for me on my way down the coast of Croatia, but it ended up being one of the best parts of my trip thus far. It was raining (drizzling) pretty much the entire time, but the hostel is located in the middle of everything, so i was able...

It is small but nice hostel, centrally located near to many important sights. Our room vas a little bit tight but it was not big problem for us. Staff is decent and very friendly which very appreciate. Would be better and more secure if they have 24h reception, but however Zagreb is nice and safe town.

My stay wasn't the best one in my life but nothing was too bad. The beds, however, were not as clean as I expected and the rooms can get quite warm during summer (they don't have air conditioning - at least not in the 8-pax room I stayed). But they have good prices for beer and the hostel is quite...

Stayed there with a group from college on a two-day trip. I was in a 4-bedroom room, which was very small, it did not really bothered me that much, because we were only there for one night, but after few days I would totally hate it. The great thing is that it is in the right center of the city,...

Hobo bear is a nice small social hostel in the center of Zagreb. We stayed only one night and was left with a good impression: Staff were friendly and informative, room was nice and quiet, place is clean and there was a nice social vibe. My favorite thing was this song you need to sing in Croatian to get a...
