If you're looking for a modern take on a hostel, where location, cleanliness, security, hospitality, and good vibes are a must then you have to say at Hostel Shappy. It is located in the heart of Zagreb, minutes from an abundance of eateries, shopping and the main market. The hosts are very knowledgable and seem to enjoy their work which...

I got to the hostel and they set me up with a parking space in a locked lot. Then they showed me around the place it's quite nice and high tech. You get a bracelet to unlock your locker and a good thing is the room door always locks behind you so things are safe but don't forget your key.

This hostel was really centrally located whilst still being quiet. The staff were friendly and it was secure and clean. Very nicely decorated room set around a very pretty courtyard area with seating, and we enjoyed the free tea/coffee/biscuits each morning. Literally my only complaint was that the pillows were a bit lumpy!

Hostel Shappy is a cozy little refuge in the heart of Zagreb, the location is brilliant, one street back from the Ilica, and only a stones thrown from the Upper Town, great atmosphere and incredibly helpful staff!

On our travel through Croatia we got to stop twice at Hostel Shappy. Both times the stuff welcoming us was super friendly and welcoming and eager to help with any question. Rooms are very modern and designed well - the bathrooms are not huge but totally sufficient (we stayed in a private). The only minus that comes to my mind...

Smaller in size, hostel still offers great price for few nights in the city center. Main square called Trg Bana Josipa Jelačića is only few minutes (walking in the lovely Ilica street) away and from there you can easily go to the tourist attractions in the Upper Town. No breakfast but you get cookies, tea (plus coffee if you prefer)...
