This hostel is what a backpacker wants to find: a pretty cheap hostel, that is clean, modern, with friendly staff, in the center of the city. The rooms are comfortable, and facilities are good. In the winter the hostel reception closes at midnight, and this could be a problem if something happens, but otherwise this hostel has it all. The... More

My friend and I stayed here for two nights in July. We had two separate rooms that shared one bathroom. The place was nice and the staff were friendly. The bar beside it allows you drinks to the outdoor lounge area. It is very central and the city has a great atmosphere.

We stayed at Hostel Shappy for six nights in late December 2014 and had a great experience. The staff was very prompt in responding to emails leading up to our trip (often responding within just a few hours), and once we arrived they were extremely helpful with directions and dining suggestions. The location was perfect - close to several main... More

The Shappy is well located in Zagreb, central to everything you could think of to visit. It took about 15 minutes to walk from the train station and was easy to find. Once we had checked in the girl on reception took us to our twin room, showing the way to gain access to the hostel after midnight. The room... More

Cute, modern hostel in the heart of town. Efficient, friendly...they've clearly got a good idea of what short term visitors want. Check in smooth, parking a little down the street worked well, internet's good. All good except that they don't accept euro.

This is definitely one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. Everything was really nice and clean and there was a little outside area that was just lovely. The staff was super-friendly, the location great and the rooms nice and spacious! I would definitely stay here again!

I stayed at Hostel Shappy for one night on Dec 4th and I have to say it was well worth the price I paid. The rooms were recently remodeled, very clean with modern design. Location is right next to one of the main squares in the city center. Martina (front desk receptionist) was great! She was very accommodating in insuring... More
