The hostel is in the suburbs of Zagreb, it's a cute cosy house with a home-like atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and laid back, and they have a lovely outdoor area where everyone hangs out. However, because of it's location it can feel a bit confined, as there aren't any services within walking distance. This is emphasized by the...

That's more or less correct, except for the ageism - from my experience (it's only about 10 years now) with, let's say 25,000 + people in a conservative estimate, it's a question of personal maturity rather than age itself (that's why it's called ageism), as i have shared my table with people from all continents and all ages. I'd recommend...

We originally planned to stay for one night, but shortly after meeting the delightful staff and all the residents, we opted for two. 'Moss' gave us some great advice for our trip and helped us with the logistics - thank you! All facilities were great, especially the showers (I'm very fussy about showers), Tres Bon!!!

Aa, thank you Oliver, that's really nice. And the part about the showers is really appreciated, a lot of effort is put into keeping the house clean, since many different people (with equally different...habits:)) use them. Kind regards from all of us here!!

You want to stay here! Rooms are spacious and have big lockers to use. Bathrooms on all floors and always clean. **lol.. read the messages:) The outside kitchen/common erea is the best!

Well hello there, what a nice surprise, reading you here :D You're very welcome, was a pleasure to host you. The stuffed pepper thing was cancelled, our favorite restaurant didn't make them that day .-. Thanks a lot for coming & reviewing, we're expecting you back one day!

One of my favorite hostels. Fantastic hosts- we showed up and Filip planned our activities and eating in Zagreb (including vegetarian restaurants). In the evening, Igor made us tea in the garden. If the weather is nice, people will hang out in the garden and quickly start chatting - very easy to make new friends. Plenty of nice common spaces...

We stayed here for a night and it really made our stay in Zagreb. Although it's a little out of the way it was easily accessible by the tram, about 15 minutes to city center. The hostel itself is well-managed and fantastic and has all the things you need. The outside space is a great place to hang out and...

After 3 months of traveling, when I landed in Mali Mrak, I felt like I discovered a hidden oasis. Nestled in the corner of a residential street, covered in vines, decorated with art, and humming with the sweet notes of live guitar strings, Mali Mrak offers a unique feeling of home, community, and comfort unlike anything I’ve experienced before at...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hi there! If you need a warm, cozy place to stay at, you're welcome here, but please, indulge me and read on first, see what's up here, then make up your mind,ok? Thank you :) Take your time, read some the reviews (there's 1000+), that's what choosing the right hostel for you is about - ESPECIALLY those of unhappy guests because they tell a good story - if you recognize yourself in them, please skip the booking and save us all the trouble, there are things more important than money -spoiled and complicated people are not a thing here :) Also, Mali Mrak is *NOT* a party hostel, we don't do pub crawls, drinking games or similar routines. The house is a simple, clean, warm and cozy place, run by friends, as well as an ongoing ambience & art project, with many contributions and handmade items from different places. While it has all the amenities of a hostel, we and a huge proportion of our guests think of it as home and way point for travelers. We prefer simplicity, honesty, spontaneity, sharing, community, common sense, talks, exchange of ideas, to see who you are and what you do - you have all our knowledge and resources at your disposal, as long as you respect the house and the people inside. The house is also ideal if you just want to have a quiet time on your own, bothered by no one, to do your own thing. Stuff that often happens, no schedule or plan though: Hiking trips, cooking, bike & other spontaneous tours around Zagreb. There's always good, local wine to be had here, at this time of the year that will often be mulled or spiced wine. We don't charge for *anything* except your bed, and that's it. LOCATION: 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 'Grmoscica', located on the foothills of Medvednica, the local mountain. Ideal if you love hiking & nature. Also, for those who are traveling on a budget and have certain skills- if you can and feel like it, you can contribute /upgrade the house in a specific way - we love that (especially the art section has grown in the meantime). You certainly wouldn't be the first. ***PLEASE NOTE:**** The City Tax (7kn per person per night or cca. 1€) is not included in the room price you book . That's all, folks! igor ... more   less
