We booked a room for two people rather than a dormitory and were led to a seperate apartment some way down the road. We ended up paying more than we would at many cheap hotels /apartments for an unmade bunk bed with no towels and without the community feeling we wanted in a hostel.

A really good hostel. Cheap, clean, close to the city center, bus and tram stops, supermarkets. When we came was to early to make the check in, but the girl who was working there allowed us to leave the bags there and going to start visit the city and around. The ambient is relaxed, lovely and we made good friends... More

Overall, the Hobo Bear is an awesome hostel. The atmosphere was very welcoming and the staff was unbelievably friendly and helpful. I agree with a lot of the reviews that the facilities were not worth 5 stars. The room was very small, very hot and the pillow was super small. Also would appreciate a towel :) The common room area... More

Great atmosphere, spacious common room with TV and games etc., lots of room to meet fellow travellers. The blonde receptionist was amazing, accommodating and friendly. Beds weren't the best we've stayed in but definitely not the worst. Kitchen big enough to prepare food and eat with plenty of facilities. Bathrooms were clean, all in all great place and will definitely... More

We loved our stay in Hobo bear due to the staff, location and the people. It's great for meeting other travellers and the hostel runs excursions which are very useful. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The downside is in the rooms and facilities. The rooms are very small, there are very few bathrooms and showers, and the kitchen... More

The hostel is really cute and the common area is amazing. I was in the apartment myself but the place was good. My only complaints are that the pillows are way too small; it's like there's nothing and that I didn't have a key to the hostel itself.

The hostel is good. But I can confirm other reviewers evaluation, that it is nothing special and I don`t know why it should have won that much awards. The staff is indeed very helpful and friendly, the beds are ok, the common room is very cool (literally) and the hostel is well located in the centre, easy to reach from... More

We stayed here as part of a large group. The staff were friendly and the accommodation very comfortable. The location is only 5 minutes from the shops, so close by to explore the city. If I returned to Croatia, I would stay here again.
