“Didn't live up to expectations”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Stayed here for 1 night with friends in May. Zagreb was a stopover place on our trip so we wanted accommodation that was cheap and central. This hostel was both of those things. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and basic facilities provided. On the first day we arrived our room wasn't ready yet but hostel allowed us to leave our bags and gave us some information about Zagreb and things to do which was helpful.

When we arrived back that night, the reception staff had loud music playing in the hall, making it impossible to sleep. This stopped around midnight thankfully but wasn't great as we had a really early start the next day. The walls are also so thin that it made it difficult to get a good nights sleep...

Overall this hostel was pretty average, cheap with good location and fine if you're going to be out partying for most of the night. If not it's probably not the best for you. Also they have a dog that is often in the hostel, he is extremely tame and did not bother me but one of my friends is allergic to dogs and nowhere on the website did it mention this. Fortunately we were only there one night but if we were there longer she would have been miserable!

This hostel is great if booking in to one of the dorm rooms. The hostel itself is very modern and has a great social feel. However if booking a double room, you may be placed in an apartment accoss the road. The apartment was adequate, and nowhere near as clean and modern as the main hostel itself. There was a very strong smell of smoke as you walked in and we could not get hot water in the shower, so had to walk over to the hostel and back to shower.

The location is very good the staff are very friendly and the facilities including kitchen, bathroom and WiFi are also good. The beds are pretty uncomfortable with old thin matresses and the floors are incredibly squeaky meaning you can hear anyone walking around at anytime of day or night. Also you are not given a key to your room, just to a locker under the bed which can easily be accessed by lifting the mattress on the bottom bunk. Not the most secure set up at all! It wasn't a terrible hostel experience but neither my partner or I slept particularly well which is kind of the main point when staying somewhere.

Stayed here for 1 night in October 2013. Staff are friendly, bathroom facilities are ok - not sparkling clean though. Beds are comfy enough. The location is the best part - easy to get to/from the airport and bus station, close to the centre of the city and several food options (bakeries, supermarkets, fast food) are nearby.

It's maybe one of the best hostel i've ever been and very kindly, friendly and clean. Everything was really great. Thanks for everything. I will never forget your hostility. I hope to be there again one time

We came to the hostel without reservation, as we saw availability online when we got into Zagreb. The man at the front desk helped us out and accommodated our large group (4 women) and even tried extra hard to have one room for us all. On more than one occasion the staff bent over backwards helping us!

Thank you Day and Night!

As summer gets more and more booked, it should be noted they have another hostel run by the same people!

I stayed in the private apartment with my girlfriend for two nights. It's located on a quiet alley down the street from the hostel. It's decent sized and basic/no frills. Quick walk to all attractions. If two are staying in the apartment, make sure to stagger your showers or take quick ones as hot water runs out quickly. Recommended for budget travelers who do not want to stay in a multi-bed dorm.
