“Awful accomodation”
Reviewed 25 July 2013 via mobile

Freezing leaky showers.
Bathroom smelled horrible from first second in the room.
Cobwebs in the room.
Just a bad place to stay. Don't go. Area was lovely just awful accomodation that put a downer on our stay in zagreb! Should be of higher standard

Great location - a stone's throw away from the bustling market and the Cathedral. Also around the corner is the heart of the city's nightlife (don't expect anything more wild than a cocktail bar). The pedestrianised area is safe and appealing, with its winding narrow streets striking out at surprising angles. Our room was small but clean, with a nice private bathroom. No air con, and the noise from diners right underneath our open window made getting to sleep difficult. Nonetheless, there was a well-equipped kitchenette and a helpful reception desk.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not overlooking the road!

We were only stopping in Zagreb for one night, a flying visit due to connecting trains, but would definitely return to the city for longer. The location of this hostel meant it served us perfectly for such a short stay, we didn't have to trek out at all to see the main sites.
The hostel is located just off the busiest road of bars in the city, which is a lovely place to people watch at night. We ate in the Nokturno Bistro right outside the hostel, and the value was amazing! We had been staying on the Croatian coastline beforehand and the drop in prices was definitely notable.
The room itself (we were stopping in a 6 person shared room) was your standard hostel room, clean and not as institutional looking as some of the places we had stayed. The shared bathroom also seemed nice and clean- although was just a kind of normal house bathroom without cubicles so not sure whether this would have a very long queue in the mornings!
The reception staff seemed very nice and willing to help, marking out a route for us to walk round and quickly see the historic sites in the centre (the furthest of which was only about a 10 minute walk) and also very easy and direct public transport links to the train station.
Overall, a really good place for people wanting something cheap and central in Zagreb, which seems a lovely city! Obviously this isn't the most qualified review as we only stayed for one night but it seemed a good find.

Stayed for three nights in June. Was perfectly clean and comfortable. It was in a perfect location, right in the centre of the old town and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for relatively cheap, convenient accommodation in a very interesting part of Zagreb. The kitchen facilities were fine and the staff very friendly. Can be a little loud at night but there was nothing else negative about it.

The Nokturno is bang in the middle of town, the staff are all charming and friendly, the rooms clean and comfortable and the atmosphere is very pleasant and relaxing. There is also an excellent restaurant downstairs. I extended my stay for a day purely because the hotel and the people running it are so nice. Highly recommended if you're passing through.

Arrived there on time and said: "I'm Jerome, I've a booking, I've a passport and I've money...."
A lady said: I'm Ivona and I'm waiting for you....After i paid she said: I will show you... and I answered: no need; I come here every year.... Laughter!
Bob Dylan singing: "but the times, they are a changing..."
"MY" Noc(k)turno will change, will renovate, will modernise...
When I was there Ivona pulled a poem away from the wall..."when cities should have a heart, here it should be Jelacica..." walls will be painted; a neon signboard will be installed outside because now you need a detective to find the hostel...
Location, location, location! Nothing can rival the location of MY Nocturno in Zagreb...at walking distance: Jelacica, Hemingway's bar, Dolac-market, the cathedral, uptown...
I've checked the dorm rooms: seems to be top quality for me...
The good news is: prices are going down from now on. Don't hesitate to go there. Top value for money. Don't forget to eat at their restaurants: don't forget to shake hands when you leave: they will say: come back, please, PLEASE and wonderful: they will remember you the year after...
BTW(by the way) don't believe hostels are for the young ones only. I'm 70.. and again, again I had the time of my life there.... See you Ivona....

Reviewed 18 November 2012

Me and two friends came to visit Zagreb in september 2012. We stayed in hostel nocturno for two nights. We had chosen this hostel because we had read in their descriptions that there was wifi and a kitchen available (these things were, apart from the location and cleanliness, important for us).

When we arrived, we received a warm welcome from the receptionist. The staff was very helpful and enthusiastic and the location of the hostel was great, but we weren't satisfied with our accomodation. First, our "kitchen" seemed to be a filthy place without any equipment to cook or eat (there was only one steelpan with remnants of burnt food). Second, the wifi connection didn't work because our room was located at the other side of the street. Moreover, the bunk bed wasn't safe because the upper bed didn't have a stepledder and no 'fence', so my friend almost fell out of the bed during the night.. we were also disappointed that the reading lights didn't work in our room.

Zagreb, the city itself, was great but we would not recommend hostel nocturno.
