We stayed 3 nights in Mali Mrak on August 2013 for my honeymoon. I couldn't expect that we had tons of unforgettable experience there in our presious stay. You can reach the hostel by 10-15 mins by trum from the train station without changes and 5-10 mins walk to get there. It's located in quiet and safe place. They have... More

Best place to stay in Zagreb! Love this hostel! The staff are incredibly friendly, and the hostel is filled to the brim with interesting people from all over the world. They've really figured out the secret recipe for a great hostel experience by putting their focus on the travelers staying in the hostel. A great, comfortable, affordable place run by... More

I initially chose this place based on other reviews and it just looked cool. Well my friends and I were not disappointed at all, in fact we found so much more. I've been to plenty of Hostels that felt like hostels. This place was like home. With their incredibly warm and friendly staff, I was truly impressed with how helpful... More

While the facilities at Mali Mrak are quite adequate, they are really not special at all – which makes the unique magic of this hostel all the more special. Mali Mrak has become accepted and loved by alternative travelers by being...well, very accepting and loving of alternative travelers. A very social place, in a quite relaxing and safe-feeling way.

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!

Great staff, location and facilities. The guys'll help you with whatever you need, and make you feel at home at the same time. The rooms are worm and the kitchen is ok to cook, wich is good if you are travelling on a low budget, also the room price is not expensive.

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

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
