    Pleasantly surprised upon our arrival, especially considering the grimy doors we had entered on the ground floor! Definitely a hostel, but had unexpected amenities like biscuits in our room and complimentary shampoo. Came across a couple of termites in our room, but what’re you gonna do? It’s an old building. We had a family suite with a private bathroom, which was bright and clean. The girl at the desk was very friendly and helpful. Mattresses are quite tired (could feel the bed frame underneath throughout the night), but this was a great fit for our family for a quick overnight in Zagreb.

    Great care is taken in every aspect of the hostel from the welcome to the helpfulness of staff, the decor, facilities and relaxed atmosphere. I'd highly recommend a stay here while in Zagreb. Hostel is convenient to the train and bus station and a short walk to the old city.

    Friendly service, well located, very clean, excellent Wi-Fi. We stayed in a private room with ensuite and it was everything we look for when traveling.

    It's okay but...

    The good: The room is big and clean. The bed is comfortable.The staff were ok. The cleaning lady is good. There is soap dish and shower caddy. That's really a big plus! The bad: The bathroom stinks! It looks clean but it stinks so bad. Also, the toilet is not very convenient to use. It is very small and you have to squeeze your way in and out just to close and open the door. Really bad engineering. One time I took a shower before someone else and I had to endure cold water just to finish showering. The shower curtain smells like pee especially when it gets wet. It's really gross. It smells like cigarette smoke in the hallway sometimes, from another guest room, and from the front door when staff smokes outside but leaves the door open. 😷 Wifi only works in the lobby which is a bit inconvenient when you want to go online before going to bed. The lobby is ok except for the smell of smoke.

    Clean and spacious room, friendly staff

    Convenient location, 5 mins walk to the main square and easily accessible from the bus terminal, you can just take tram No.6 and walk 5 mins. The room is spacious, clean and comfortable, even there are 3 bunk beds, but still you have your own space. The reception staff are very friendly and informative, the lady helped me to find information to go to the Plitviice Lakes, and even helped me to book the bus ticket online, so I can go to the Lake on the 1st day of New Year. Great appreciation for her help.

    Within walking distance of the main train station and the olt town, this hostel was perfect for what i was searching for. I had a private room. The shared bathrooms were clean. I would stay again. Note, its entrance is on a side door. That you will need to get buzzed in. Just find the dots button to ring for a buzz.

    Lovely and spacious deluxe rooms

    The deluxe room were simply perfect. Maybe a little bit warm but the air condition helped :) clean and very modern room. The entire hostel looks neat and comfy. Really close to the city center of Zagreb and to supermarket, bars etc
