Me and my four friends stayed at this hostel on our backpacking trip. The staff was super friendly and young. We a got a free room upgrade that allowed me and my four friends to have our own room. This hostel has great food choices. There are multiple places to get food at the hostel. The Asian fusion restaurant they have was really refreshing as I could not find many good Asian food places in Europe. The best part of this hostel is your ability to connect with others. I met a couple friends that stayed at the hostel and we were able to hangout and grab drinks at the bars on site. On my last night there I was even provided a free meal from one of the guests that decided to cook for the staff and other guests at the hostel. If you are traveling through Zagreb and you are under the age of 30 this is a must go!

Close to the sights and nice and quiet! We only stayed one night but would absolutely stay again. Breakfast and staff were amazing! Plenty of shopping and restaurants in the area. We didn’t catch the pool or bar but heard they were great.

The Hostel look really fresh, clean bathrooms and comfy beds. Location is superb. When we arrived the girl working there did not even looked at us when we came in and said hello. She just kept staring at the computer screen obviously ignoring us for 1-2 minutes. She had heard the "Hello" and we were standing less than 1m away, so that was super awkward. The staff did not show us around the common area, only the bedroom. I think they could have made the effort of showing us at least where the washrooms were. 🤷‍♀️ We chose the hostel because of the good rated social atmosphere. When we asked later if it was any activity they arranged she answered that they only do things with the guests in the high season, If I knew that I wouldn’t have chosen this hostel.

Stayed in "Brijačnica" for two nights. The first night TV had only few channels in function, the second night most of them "activated". I was asked to show my wristband during the breakfast by three or four different people which was really annoying. The second night hot water went off around 8:30 pm and came back probably around 2 am (didn't check, went to sleep). The reception clerk (female, Croatian, don't remember her name) explanation for the hot water problem was "that's not a big deal and you should have more understanding as that's how hostel guests should behave". Well, clients that pay for the service expect it to be fully available, it doesn't matter if it's a hostel, a hotel or a B&B. This is a good hostel, but definitely not the best in Croatia as they claim to be. There are better ones at the coast.
