Very modern hostel, the private double room was truly great, the bath small but on a very high standard for a hostel. Staff was very friendly and cheerful. Wifi was weak in the room but ok in the general areas.

I stayed in a private 2 bed room with a friend and it was a great place to stay! The staff was VERY helpful and knowledgeable. They even emailed me after I left something in the room! Only downside was that the wifi didn't reach our room.

Right in the city center, very confortable to stay a couple of nights and enjoy the city. Recepcionist was very nice and charming. Price per night was also allright. Everything was clean and cute, very `ikea' kind of furniture: simple but very convenient.

We spent 2 nights in Hostel Shappy, located in the centre of Zagreb and less than 5min walking from the main square. Our room (double with private bathroom) was clean, quiet, tastefully decorated but rather small. The hostel has a nice courtyard which is an excellent place to bring your breakfast (you can borrow plates at the reception) or just... More

Clean rooms, very friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. The backyard is quite cozy to sit at night and have a cup of coffee or tea. Great place to stay for a few nights in Zagreb. If they would improve anything it would be to be a bit more welcoming and personal.

Perfect location, very modern, clean and romantic. We had a double room that was basically hotel standard for just 56€ a night. WiFi is for free and the hostel also has a free parking just 100 meters away, that needs to be reserved with them in advance. Great experience!!
