This is a great spot if you want to be in the middle of the upper town area. It was a decent hike from the main rail station though. I shared a 6 bed dorm on 2nd floor. The main downsides were that there is only one shower and one toilet per floor and there were people (locals working with... More

This hostel is a well-managed, clean, safe hostel that is located in the heart of Zagreb on the pedestrian road that is lined with cafes, bars and restaurants. We stayed in a double bed with a private bath. It was a clean, quiet, modern room. All of the employees (the two Annas were wonderful) were extremely friendly and helpful with... More

In the center of one of the most crowded streets in Zagreb, the Taban Hostel is perfect for a young couple or a group of friends. I slept in the apartment that was cheap and huge. Coolest thing : unifying the hostel and the bar, very easy to know new people

It seems that this place puts 70% of its energy into being a bar and just 30% into being a hostel. Unfortunately, that makes for a lot of wasted potential and a bad hostel. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. Showers and toilets were also clean and in good shape. There were lockers and the wireless was working.... More

Stayed here with friends in January. Great location. My daughter and I were comfortable enough, but our friends really suffered with noise from the bar, which apparently was open all night and had quite a big crowd. At least 100 people and a pretty heavy bass playing. We were on the third floor and it was okay, although the smell... More

The staff were very friendly and were always willing to help you out and give advice about Zagreb and beyond. Unfortunatelly there is no kitchen or common room and the bar is often empty what makes no atmosphere. Very clean and great location.

Stayed here Oct 2013 for just one night. Location is excellent, in the heart of Zagreb and very close to the centre. Lots of restaurants and bars outside in a very lively and vibrant street. Breakfast in the basement was nothing to write home about but it was included free with the room. The music noise that comes from the... More

I was there for a 3 night stay. It was everything I was expecting. Nothing too luxurious but definetly comfortable and friendly. The staff was always there to help. Although we had to wait a few minutes sometimes for the receptionist to come back from other work, help was always available! The rooms have everything that is needed. Towels, linens,... More
