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

:D glad you liked! Mljet is special. Hope you found the secret restaurant. @bathrooms: no wonder - your too tall, dutch-man :) But you're right, they are smallish. Thanks for the lovely review, maybe see you one day again. 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! Everyone at the hostel was so friendly and helpful, Igor gave us loads of ideas for places to visit and eat (the man knows his pizza + CHEAP local... More

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. I was dropping through Zagreb for a flight out of the country... More

Was recently living in Zagreb for the past 4 months and spent a weekend here towards the end of my stay. Sat and had a beer with Igor (the owner) as soon as my friend and I arrived. Extremely welcoming people, laid back and chilled out atmosphere with lovely facilities as well. I will 100% be returning here when I... More

The Mali Mrak Hostel in Zagreb is amazing! :) It was a friend who proposed to sleep in this "really, really nice" Hostel with a "cool and very sympathetic owner". And she did not promise too much. A hippie-like and friendly establishment and a coffee with the owner of the hostel on the snugly courtyard besides the building created a... More

Mali Mrak is a beautiful and tranquil place to stay when you visit Zagreb. Igor the owner has put so much thought into this place - you cant help but love the place and its staff. From the individual artwork that is dotted across the hostel to the smile your receive at reception - for me it is everything a... More

I loved this hostel. The whole atmosphere is very friendly and familier. Thanks to the staff and the owner for the nice conversations. :) It's very communal. Felt like a shared flat for me. Great place to stay.

The hostel loved you, as well :) Great people, great time with you. Correction though - it's not a shared flat. It's a shared house :) But yes, that's exactly the idea. Always welcome if you're in this part of the world again. And thanks for taking the time to review. More
