“Awesome week in Zagreb for New years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

Place looks good, beds are comfy and the service is really good. The reception downstairs is in a proper cafe/bar, where we were more than happy to spend time tasting the local Rakia before heading out in the night. Proper lockers in the rooms for safekeeping of valuables and keycards for entering the room and the hostel at night.
Showers were nice, no problems with pressure or hot water and the overall cleanliness of the common areas, toilets and showers was above satisfying.
We were traveling with a big group of friends, and had the nicest time in Zagreb. I'd warmly recommend this hostel to anyone!

The hotel is next to the main square with clubs cafés. Next to the train station as well (10 min walk). everything is new and kept tidy and clean. The bar crew is nice as well. We had a lot of fun.
Really good times!

Friendly place and staff. English spoken. Clean rooms, showers, WC. Quiet place, well located in the city center, really close to the main square and the trams. The bar area is perfect to hang out with friends. Smoking is not prohibited (only a good new for smokers though...). Lockers in the rooms. A keycard for everybody and code on the door, both rooms and entrance door. Wifi is allright. A small towel is given by the hotel, but no soap in the showers, so bring yours.

This place is modern, comfy dorms/shower rooms and a nice bar/cafe area.

But its interesting to see the previous reviewer say there was an issue with asking for a private room and being put in a dorm as that is exactly the experience of our group.

For those of us that were in dorms, the security was abysmal. Often all of the doors from the street right up to the room were wide open and there seemed to be people wandering in and out of the dorms that we knew weren't staying in those dorms.

One of our group had a significant amount of money taken from his belongings and our bags had been rifled through.

Hostel Shappy is excellent located just 2 walking minutes from the Ban Jelacic Place. Also we were allowed to bring our dog with us and to keep him in our room for free. Even the house-own parking place is without charge. The staff is very friendly, helpful and they all speak English very well. They still kept being friendly as our group went a little bit too loud after returning home in the night. Sorry because of this again ;)

Moreover the mentionable housekeeping and the in-house bar deserve a large plus!

Unfortunately there are neither toilets nor showers in the dorm rooms. But we already knew that before booking. Still the shared bathrooms are very clean and sufficient available so no waiting times occur.

Shappy is in a great located, it's modern with comfortable rooms and excellent facilities but above the staff are so friendly. We were a bit too hungover to face Zagreb and the lovely Ivana made us feel very welcome in the lounge area - plenty of oranges juices and back to back animal documentaries on the big screen (perfect hangover cure). Highly recommended as a comfortable stay at good value.
