Swanky Mint is a good hostel. The staff is very friendly, helpful and gives loads of good advice. They're always smiling. The hostel itself is in a good location, close to the main square. It was missing a common area to just sit and relax other than the bar where you felt like you need to buy something in order to sit there or the kitchen where people were cooking. The pool area was pretty nice, though. And the dorms were good as well. The beds are comfy. What I missed was another toilet outside of the dorms. But I would stay again if I were to come back to Zagreb.

During our visit to Zagreb we stayed at the swanky mint in a private room for two nights. The staff were helpful, and allowed us to leave our large bags at reception due to our early arrival. The location is very good, being only a 10 minute walk at most from the main square. Rooms were clean, tidy and of a good size with air-conditioning. The hostel had the added advantage of a pool to cool off for guests, great for a hot day. Also a very nice resident cat!

Ive ended a biketrip in zagreb and even when the hostel was full and crowded full of people from everywhere the staff always stayed cool and were helpful, always in a lovely good mood. The day before i left i could use the pool even ive checked out and they even gave me the opportunity to have a shower before my bus brings me back home, even towels were ready for me. I was so glad about this because it was a really hot journey and i sweated a lot and before a 24h bus drive back home a shower would be needed for me. Thankyou so much for this service, you are the best!

This place is awesome, great staff, comfortable and cute rooms, awesome drinks and food. We had a private room and it was quiet and so comfy. Hotel is centrally located within the city center and a great launching spot. Bar gets super lively and fun in the evenings. They have so many options for private rooms to family rooms and dorm style, something for everyone.

Room Tip: No parking, that we saw, but we took a cab. No elevators (but that’s common for Europe).

First of all, I normally never book hostels.Since it appeared on booking site as Swanky bed and breakfast I booked it and was a bit hesitant if I made the right choice. Boy oh boy was I right !!! When we arrived there we were greeted by this friendly young girl who was so accomodating and helpful we felt right at home and we knew right away that we would have a nice stay here. Lot's of complaints that I've read are about the breakfast that it 's not very grand or that there aren't a lot of choices. Well,for us,it was more than enough. For those of you who have doubts ,here's the list of what was available. Salami,Ham, 3 types of cheese,jam (3 different ones),choco,cereals (2 types),eggs,bread,orange juice,water and any type of coffee you like. The room was nice and clean and we had everything we needed.There's a TV with even a netflix account available,but it's in the croatian language.....oops. Mattress was a bit hard,but fine by me, I like a hard mattress. Don't hesitate if you want to book here,you're also smack in the middle of shopping and very close to everything !

+ Central location + Tiny but nice pool area (it was too cold to swim but it was nice chilling there) + Nice bar with good drinks (some of them seemed a bit watery but it was still fine) - Breakfast was not good. No selection at all. Same food for two days. - It’s quite noisy. Especially when your windows are close to the bar - Rooms can be cleaned better Overall for the price of private room with bathroom and breakfast it was fine.

The owners have made an excellent job of converting this old textile factory into a comfortable and innovative hostel. All the important stuff like comfort, cleanliness, etc. is top-notch but it's the 'above and beyond' that makes this exceptional. Great bar, restaurant, areas to chill, check-in, and attention to detail go way beyond most hostels and into hotel/community territory. Nothing really comes to mind in terms of issues, certainly nothing major. The included breakfast was a bit limited and our first experience of slightly dour staff. The online check-in is, I suspect, great for singles or maybe couples but was a real pain for a family having to repeat lots of information. Took ages and then, because I'd apparently not added information that wasn't asked for on the form, it all had to be done again at check-in anyway! Minor irritations compared to the experience this stay offers. Highly recommended.

Amazing place! Full of joy and nice people. The best spot in the hostel is the kitchen, super cozy, with such a friendly environment. The staff is great and the rooms and bathrooms are very clean and tidy. Last but not least, there is a bar inside the hostel! Swankey Monkey Garden is a really cool place to grab some beers with friends. If you are in Zagreb for some nights, you will make the best of your experience by staying at this hostel!
