Lovro and his team really look after you. I was part of a group of 14. We took advantage of cheap pub crawls, local restaurants and group activities. Great parties each night and fantastic value for money. Will return hopefully.

I stayed in a 6 bed dorm for a few nights and I had a good time. The staff are helpful and friendly and the location is good. The bar and terrace on location are also very nice and affordable. Overall I would recommend it.

After spending 4 nights in Istanbul, Zagreb was supposed to be a one night stop on our way to coastal Istria. Mother Nature greeted us with cold temps, wind and rain - all signs she wanted us to stay. To say we were very glad we did would be an understatement. My traveling pal and I, both single and in...

Incredible location, exceptional funky hostel with awesome rooms (we had a private room with en suite) and a great bar (although it shuts ridiculously early!). The staff are super helpful and recommended some great places to eat/drink. Would absolutely stay here again.

Everything was perfect - location, spacious and clean room, helpful staff, nice food and drinks served, and happening almost the entire week. The hostel was a renovated dry cleaning and textile-dye factory and thus industrial elements have been added to the design of the hostel and the rooms. During our stay, they were renovating another block and it looks like... More

Swanky Mint is in a great location! Very easy to reach by tram, conveniently located for all major tourist sites, & on a main street for shopping. There is a really delicious pub across the street too. We stayed in a private double room for 3 nights, which had an ensuite bathroom. The room was big, clean, & everything was... More

Awesome place, great vibe. Will be back! We had a double room it was clean, well equipped and had a cool minimalist charm. Breakfast was great, atmosphere was great. Could very well be the best hostel I have ever stayed in. Off season prices make this place super affordable! We came in April.
