“Best Hostel I've stayed in!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Swanky Mint Hostel is right in the middle of Zagreb. Very easy to reach by tram. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, even if guests arrive after hours. The bar and terrace are are very stylish, I felt right at home. Stayed in a 6-bed mixed dorm, but they took care to put girls there only.

This is my second time staying at Swanky and I'll most definitely stay again the next time I'm in Zagreb. I planned to stay one night, but ended up staying three. The atmosphere and style of the whole place is great (bar and terrace in particular), the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and the rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet. You couldn't ask for a better place to start or end your trip to Croatia. I've already recommended it to a buddy traveling through later this month.

We stayed one night, but would have liked more. Trendy hostel with great interior design and comfortable beer garden. We stayed in a private room which was quiet (despite the party in the beer garden). Good breakfast.

Really enjoyed it - fairly basic rooms but the style of the place and the staff mean you definitely get value for your money..
Have already recommended it to a mate and would go again if I was in Zagreb.
Also they cleaned up all our stuff everyday which most hostels don't...

Loved the atmosphere, thought everything about the hostel was really excellent. But the beds weren't very good and both of us woke up several times in the night unable to get back to sleep because they weren't comfortable.

Overall though, the staff, welcome, location and aura of the place was great, its going to be recommended to friends if they hit Zagreb.

Dear Ben R,

Thank you for taking time and leaving your review. We are truly sorry to hear that you found our beds to be uncomfortable. Swanky design team was highly focused on combining the most eco-friendly materials with comfort when they designed the beds and we take pride in our recycle-reuse theme and overall design of the hostel. Nevertheless, we hope you enjoyed your stay in Zagreb and that you will come back again soon.

Wishing you safe travels!

Your Swanky team

We stayed there for 3 days, 1 day in the 6 person room which was insane, very roomy, private bathroom, private tv and a double bed. The other 2 days we stayed in the dorm which was also very cool.
The staff is very friendly and the bar is very good.
Cocktails are very cheap, long island icetea for only 25 kuna!!
They also have a very nice terras above the bar.
It's a very nice calm hostel.
It will be my first choice if I ever visit zagreb again.

Myself and 22 of my mates stayed in Swanky in June 2014. This hostel goes the extra mile and has a really friendly and quirky vibe. The staff come across as a family rather than colleagues which really made us feel at home. If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Zagreb, book a bed in Swanky Mint...you won't regret it!
