10/10 Exceptional

Loved it. Very convenient

6/10 Good

Property was centrally located. Reception was largely unstaffed during our stay. Receptionist tried to charge double the tax on arrival and later argued that this was a misunderstanding when challenged. Towels provided would have been inadequate as hand towels. Shower was tiny and doors broken. Wallpaper in rooms was peeling off. All in all I would avoid if other options are available.

The location is good, decoration is nice, and the staff, especially Kristina who hosted us, was very pleasing. But the place needs a serious air-conditioning -- the rooms were very hot and there was no ventilator. That is why no one could really spend time at the hostel besides sleeping when the weather gets cooler.

2/10 Poor

Uncomfortable, cramped and bed bugs.
Hostel not accurately reviewed. 9-10 rooms sharing one shower and 2 very small "toilet rooms". Beds were extremely uncomfortable and pillow almost nonexistent. No towels in "toilet room". Towel they give you is a large wash cloth. To top it off, our room (#6) had bed bugs and we ended up leaving after our 2nd of 3 nights to get new hotel room after we discovered bites all over our bodies and while packing our stuff up, inspected mattress to see bed bug full of blood. I do not usually review and am very relaxed about room choices but was shocked at all the 9-10 point reviews. Feel that it is totally inaccurate and misleading. Pluses do include location and cost which are amazing, but is far outweighed by negatives. I would not recommend at all.

8/10 Very good

Inez is super enthusiastic and helpful! She gave us recommendations of things to do around Zagreb and made us feel welcome at the hostel. The rooms are cute and comfy (even the mattress, unless we were too tired to notice haha). Only complaints are the walls are thin so it’s easy to hear neighbors inside and outside, and there’s no a/c. Oh, and the shower is a little funky... you have to hold the spout with one hand while you use it because it’s not attached to the wall.
