My stay wasn't the best one in my life but nothing was too bad. The beds, however, were not as clean as I expected and the rooms can get quite warm during summer (they don't have air conditioning - at least not in the 8-pax room I stayed). But they have good prices for beer and the hostel is quite... More

Stayed there with a group from college on a two-day trip. I was in a 4-bedroom room, which was very small, it did not really bothered me that much, because we were only there for one night, but after few days I would totally hate it. The great thing is that it is in the right center of the city,... More

Hobo bear is a nice small social hostel in the center of Zagreb. We stayed only one night and was left with a good impression: Staff were friendly and informative, room was nice and quiet, place is clean and there was a nice social vibe. My favorite thing was this song you need to sing in Croatian to get a... More

We stayed at Hobo Bear Hostel for two nights in June, as part of a trip around the Balkans. We booked a private room, which was a short walk from the main hostel. The room was very clean, airy, and was everything we needed for the short time we were in the city. The staff were very helpful as well.... More

Only stayed for a night but it had really cool vibes and great recommendations from the staff. Would go back to stay. The check in process was easy enough and the room we stayed in was on the main floor but I didnt think it was noisy at all. They close down the common area after a while to keep... More

First of all, the staff is really great. They are always open to help you and we felt very welcome in the first second. The common area is nice as well. The rooms are a bit different - some of them are nice, some are not the best ( the 4 bed room is more like a cellar). The bed... More
