Fantastic hostel! Highly recommend staying here. Was great after being quite busy and traveling heaps to relax and unwind at this hostel for a few days. We were made to feel so welcome, it was a great way to finish our trip in Europe. A little way out of the CBD but super easy to jump on the tram into... More

I stayed at Mali Mrak for 6 nights and felt like I was in a second home. Igor and Ivana made me feel very welcome right from the beginning. Plus it was really easy to get along with other guests. Everyone there wasn't into going and getting smashed every night which is as relief. We were able to enjoy things... More

This hostel is definitely one of the hidden gems in Zagreb! It is very clean and comfortable. The atmosphere is so warm and welcoming. It is more like visiting a friend's house than a hostel. There is a relaxed vibe and everyone is very friendly. Igor, Filip and Ivana are the best hosts, this is definitely a hostel worth staying... More

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,...

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!!
