Welcome to Mali Mrak, traveler!

Our house is a simple, clean, warm and cozy place, run by friends. We prefer to call it a home for travelers instead of a ‘hostel’.

The house is also an ongoing ambiental & artistic project, with many contributions and handmade items from many different places. We prefer simplicity, honesty, spontaneity, community, common sense, talks, exchange of ideas, to see who you are and what you do - whatever you prefer to do, you're most welcome, not just as a guest - as long as you respect the house and the people in and around it, you’ll have all our knowledge and resources at your disposal.

We're located 15-20 min. by tram from the center, in a peaceful neighborhood, as well as 15 minutes walking from the nature park 'Grmošćica', located on the foothills of Medvednica, the local mountain. Ideal if you love hiking & nature. Feel free to ask for tips, also read more below regarding hiking.

As one of the first hostels in Zagreb, we stay true to our reputation as a very friendly place - we really take care of our guests:

• No over-bookings - in case of human error (happens sometimes), we'll book another hostel for you and pay the taxi to take you there.

• If, in above case, there’s a price difference not in your favor, we cover it.

• If, in above case, no free beds can be found in the city, you sleep at a friend's place, free of charge.

• In summer it often happens that the city is full - you can come to our place and we'll see to it that you don't sleep in the train or bus station.

• You don't pay for anything else except the bed you booked (see below also)

****** Stuff you can do & have here at the hostel - besides Sleeping: D *******

•You're welcome to join us in exploring Zagreb - we'll show you places outside the tourist mainstream, the secret haunts of the city etc., if you're interested in that.

•You can have free yoga lessons - in summer, that’s the yoga terrace, under starlight & with candles, just let Igor know on time.

•certified massage by Anna, for an excellent price.

•Other free stuff: laundry, coffee/tea, random food

• Sexy, superfast fiber optics internet

• Free bikes for guests that stay longer;

• Free local wine, and not just some cheap swill: D

•Community dinners, after a market day (see below), especially fish barbecue, since this is a maritime country. Ask us on time, this takes time to organize. Fish is bought fresh from the market of course.

•People who are interested in local culture are most welcome to join us on a market day - it’s a lovely event and one of the genuine local things to experience.

•If you're into hiking, let us know – the area around Zagreb is wonderful, we'll take Fenris the dog and tour the local hills.

• Possible (depending on staff schedule): trips to very special out-of-city locations (ask at the reception). Cost: guest shared - gasoline (and car rental, if necessary because of more people), nothing else.

• Special note to gamers: Numenera & Planescape sessions available, ask at reception!

•We can give you invaluable insider advice on Zagreb and Croatia, as well as access to the social network. Don’t be shy, don't hesitate to ask us, some of us have traveled enough around here to know a thing or two.

The house is also ideal if you just want to have a quiet time on your own, bothered by no one, do your own thing – Mali Mrak is *NOT* a party hostel.

Also, for those who are traveling on a budget and have certain skills- if you can and feel like it, feel free to contribute /upgrade the house in a specific way - we love that (especially the art section has grown in the meantime) - create something and in return you can get a discount or a free stay. You certainly wouldn't be the first, and we are known to support travelers in many more ways than just giving convenient bed prices. Work for stay & food available – there is need of a very precise hand with the brush - there's a lot of drawings that have to be filled. It is very precise, patient work. Contact us if you are interested!

See you around,

Filip, Ivana, Nika, Natalia & Igor


The City Tax (7kn per person per night or cca. 1€) is not included in the room price you book online. We have to charge it in any case, and since many wonder what that is, here goes: it's not something any hostel makes up, it's just that - a city tax that goes to the state of Croatia, a way to make money. We must charge it, and keep it separately because of account keeping, so we rather choose not to incorporate it into the bed price (that means: raising that same price for said amount and proclaim 'no additional tax') and charge it separately and show it on your bill.

Card are accepted, but the 3% bank fee is paid by YOU, not the hostel!

That's all, folks!

Important Information

Hi there, thanks for booking! Here's an important note: you can check in 24/7, but that doesn't mean we're sitting on our butts waiting for your leisure :) --> the check in works with your stated ETA in the booking you made, so try and stick to it. If you're way behind your ETA, drop us a NOTE! If you DON'T, you'll find instructions on what to do once you arrive at the hostel.

PAYPAL bookings: be sure to notify us of changes in your travel plans, we can't hold your bookings for more than 5 hours beyond stated ETA in high season, sorry!

DIRECTIONS & LOCATION: I sincerely hope you read the where and how (on the hostelworld website) because it's SIMPLE - we are fundamentally tired of tourists (NOT backpackers/travelers) complaining where we are AFTER they book o.O !!! You have gmaps, the hostelworld directions, basically the entire 21st century that caters to our pampered 1st world lives. Do your research, thank you.

Also, i hope you booked here AFTER you read the description of the hostel - i consider it a hostel only in form, for online purposes. You are coming to a house where you will be treated genuinely as a friend, as long as you respect the community here, which has grown, and still is growing, into quite a specific place, that is haven to many people from all continents.

We are in a residential area, so keep it quiet after 22:00, ok? That especially goes for louder speaking cultures like UK, US, AUSTRALIA, SPAIN & co :)
Remember, Croatia is a very safe country, so don't be afraid to walk the streets at night, it's nothing like the big cities in other countries.

See you at the house, folks, we're all looking forward to meet you, host you and spend a good time together. Don't be shy to ask for the goodies/freebies we offer, they're real and not just for show. We're usually very busy, so we might forget sometimes. Give us a nudge then ;)

Travel smoothly,

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Very nice hostel. A bit far from the center of the town but the staff was very friendly


Great stay. Greeted by friendly and informative man at the desk - bit hard to find him though. Very clean and signs up all over the bathrooms about keeping the bathrooms that way. 3 computers for free internet which was great but always full. Free wireless as well. Kitchen with fridge to use but crowded if more than 2 people inside. Room size was more than adequate. About a 10 minute walk to the tram stop. Would stay there again.
