Good points: very friendly and helpful staff that make you feel like it's not a hostel but a home! Comfortable beds and the rooms were always clean. They turn the air conditioning on throughout the night was was great, a lot better than using fans. Plenty of showers so there was never a queue. Igor (I think he is the... More

This was my first hostel I went to as a solo traveller. It was a little outside of Zagreb, but I liked this as it was away from the heat and noise of the city and in a quiet neighbourhood. I ended up absolutely loving it, I met the nicest people there, both travelers staying there and the people who... More

Thank you, glad you liked your stay. It's a very busy time for us, but i'm not really important that you should meet me :) Regarding AC - we cool all floors until a certain hour, especially during heatwaves. Makes sleep much better for everyone. Kind regards, Igor More

This might be the most colorful hostel you'll find in Croatia! And there is art everywhere. The important information first: the beds were comfortable, the facilities were clean, lockers are available and in exchange for coffee you can hand the staff some of your laundry. The hostel is not in the city center, but it is easy to find and... More

Glad to have you with us, thanks for a very nice time ! Trips to the river are not commercial, we don't charge them in anyway, but they're rather spontaneous, so don't expect it, but expect it :) If there's no time, we will recommend you secret spots that are hard to find otherwise, Croatia is full of them (thankfully,...

Staying at Mali Mrak Hostel in Zagreb was a great experience. It's is not only a creative, cozy and unique venue- Igor and his staff are absolutely welcoming and helpful too.

I've spent 3 nights at the Mali Mrak with my girlfriend just about a week ago. We really enjoyed our stay in this nice and cosy hostel on the outskirts of Zagreb. Unfortunately we only met Igor on our third day, otherwise we probably could have profited more from his knowledge of Zagreb. The facilities were really clean all the... More

I am months late but I still want to spread how wonderful this home was! I originally booked two nights, but ended up staying four! :D I decided to choose this home over another hostel because of the description on Hostelworld, so glad I did!! It was a little hard finding the right building, but after I got in, Igor... More

I'm not usually one to write a review on a place, and in fact this is my first. We couldn't have stumbled upon a better place to stay whilst travelling Europe!

Zagreb has been on my mind ever since I returned from it. And more so, Hostel Mali Mrak, where I experienced the wonderful hospitality of my friend Igor (yes, his warm and friendly advice made me feel that he's my friend and the hostel a place where I'd like to stay a lot more). The hostel itself is quite trendy... More

Mali Mrak was an absolutely delightful place to stay. I initially contacted the hostel for some information via Facebook a few days prior to my intended stay, and was not only helped beyond what i could ever have expected, but felt I was already great friends with Igor.
