For a lot of reasons this place is amazing!! A LOT! But you can just talk about the people who works in the hostel. They are great! Nice people, very friendly and helpful! You just have a good sensation of being at home, in a nice and cozy place. I went to croatia for just a few days and at... More

As a big group, we all enjoyed our stay here. It wasn't in the city, but it was only a short tram away. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It's a very quiet neighbourhood and the staff really respect this- We were asked to be quiet at around 9pm for talking slightly loud in the garden. So it is... More

Yes sir, exactly :D! Quiet place, not a party hostel, that's us :) I like your review, but i do have to make a correction: Quiet time is after 22:00, not 21:00, and if you were asked to be quiet, it's because people from England are usually really loud (sorry, but that's a fact :D), so your perception of "...

I mean that title literally. I've traveled all over Europe and Africa and stayed at more hostels than I can count, and if I had to pick one place to go back to, it would be Mali Mrak. I planned to stay one night on my way to the coast but ended up staying a week the first time, and... More

I stayed at Mali Mrak for a few nights in the spring (2014) and have been recommending it to friends going to Zagreb every since. Igor and company have created a warm, welcoming environment that fosters community. The staff was helpful and kind, the rooms were great, and the location away of the noise of the city center. I will... More

As someone who has stayed at dozens of hostels in the past few years, I can honestly say that Mali Mrak is among the best I've seen. It is constantly being renovated, very clean, afforably priced, and has a fantastic atmosphere; all that, though, pales in comparison to it's most positive aspect: the people. The owner is without question the... More

Thank you! I am quite surprised about your perspective on location, it's really refreshing :D We are definitely NOT in the city center (to anyone reading this), just a very common residential area, but we really like the place - it's part of what Mali Mrak is. More

My experience in this hostel was totally wonderful. Igor helped us with everything, he gave us helpful information about the city, the nightlife and museums, restaurants as well, places to visit... he was the most friendly and kind owner that I met in my life! After our first experience in the hostel he invited us as friends :D I totally... More

I guess it's a pleasure to reply to such reviews, Bahia, as yours :) A word to the reader - your room suggestion is relatively correct only - you stayed in November, and that's slow season. In summer, we are full, so there might be more noise definitely in busier times, despite the strict policy i have in the hostel... More

I stayed here with my wife and best buddy in the midst of a three month journey around the world. Croatia was a highly anticipate stop and we were warmly welcomed by Igor and the staff. It was a bit of a pain in the behind finding it, but Igor patiently talked us through the process very late at night... More

I travel a lot and stay in lots of hostels and hotels - in Asia, Europe and America. Mali Mrak is my favorite - without question. I like it for its unique, quirky atmosphere, and for the fact that many mornings you will hear lovely piano music from the second floor. The garden is wonderful at all times of day... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to our house! It's quite an ordinary and simple place, located 10 minutes by tram from the city center, "were you awake to the twitter of birds", as one guest aptly put it. What we prefer here in Mali Mrak is an exchange of ideas, lifestyles, cuisine, freedom, philosophy, tolerance, new perspectives and friendship! Here, you can do and be who you are (except for a few house rules :D) and have a nice time with us. We also support travelers in all possible ways - if you think you can contribute to our place (we do art, play music, etc), do it and stay the night for free or get a discount. Visit us, it's all about expanding our ways and views, learning each others customs and ways. Our place is just a miniscule way-point on your road, but it can be a memorable one indeed. We offer simplicity and common sense, respect and honesty. If you understand this spirit, we will all get much more from your visit here than just a stay at 'another place'. Besides that, we have many other nice stuff here � *rpg's (Planescape setting) and board games, upon request available*you can have free yoga sessions, if you are interested in that *certified medicinal massage for a very good price (our dear neighbor Anna), *drama workshops for guests *insider info (Zagreb and Cro off the beaten tourist tracks)Additionally, there's free laundry service, wi-fi etc. - the little things that make the road a much more pleasant experience.Please note that we do not allow heavy drinking in the hostel and the behavior that necessary follows from such things. Thank you. ... more   less
