The good reviews are accurate, this small hostel is a hidden gem in Zagreb. Jelena is so friendly and helpful with advice and she keeps the place very clean. It is small and not crowded, not a party hostel, so you can get some good rest here. It is also well located with a nearby tram stop, walking distance to... More

We had a fantasic stay in the double room in this hostel. Its clearly the owners flat that she is letting out as a hostel and she is very friendly and helpful. The double room is truly massive with a fantastic bed and light which streams in, in the morning. Location is great as well being really close to the... More

Good location, really safe area and building. Host was brilliant, really helpful and honest about the sites in Zagreb and helped us get to the Plitvice Lakes (which was our main aim). Bed was comfortable and a fan was provided which was really helpful. If I was ever in Zagreb again on similar budget I would probably stay here (Also... More

I stayed at the Old Town Backpackers for 2 nights and it was a good place to stay. Everything is clean and tidy and the dorm is very spacious with lockers inside. The living room is also nice and big. The whole hostel is more like a big apartment than a typical hostel. The location is unbeatable and Ana is... More

I stayed here in 2005 and so rebooked in 2015. Still absolutely fantastic. Jelena is the best host -- very friendly and genuine. The place is spotless and comfortable. Quiet out of season, almost like having an apartment to yourself. Large living room to socialise in, kitchen with all equipment and basic ingredients provided (free tea and coffee). Comfortable beds.... More

You can tell Jelena really loves her hostel. This space was so well cared for, every detail paid attention to. She even has a hair straightener available for girls! The kitchen is superb, the rooms are lovely - and they even offer lockers outside of the room so you don't have to wake roommates up if you're getting up in... More

Zagreb has a large amount of hostels to choose from. But if you're looking for a smaller, personable hostel with high ceiling (in case you are incredibly tall) this is the place for you. Jelena was very helpful throughout my stay at the hostel :)

I work as a tour guide in Dublin and so I am in constant contact with the hostels in my city. Through all the hostels I've stayed in or worked alongside at home, I've never felt more welcomed than I did in the Old Town Zagreb. It's been 8 weeks since my stay but I still remember vividly what a... More
