Amazing. Parents with two kinds (6,7yo) went there for a night we ended up staying 5. Nicole and Valerija were great. Unfortunately on last day, there were some guest smoking in the room beside wich ruined somehow the ambiance -.- Overall experience: super.

Staff were very helpful when I emailed to book as we had a car. They were able to provide off street parking. Hostel is very nice inside and quite small which is nice as not so many people. Only 15 mins to city on tram which is easy to catch. Nice clean facilities. Friendly girl at the desk when we... More

We had a great time at the swanky crib which was extremely clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful! Rooms were a reasonable size and all facilities were available including a nice kitchen area and good bathroom facilties... the only real draw back was the location which was about 30 mins walk from the center... not a problem...

My friend and I had a pleasant stay at Swanky - there was absolutely nothing to complain about! I highly recommend Swanky to everyone. The service was very high, the rooms were quite big and with large closets. The hostel also has a nice terrace as well, where it is possible to sit all night.

This place was awesome! Really cool design on the inside, it felt more like we were staying in a friends groovy flat rather than a hostel. The bedrooms, bathrooms and living room where all spacious, clean and well equipped. The staff where really friendly and helpful, showing us the map and various points of interest in the city without us... More

Overall - really lovely, good night's sleep, clean and wonderful wonderful service! Highly recommend! We arrived really late and were still given a warm welcome, the room we stayed in was very comfortable, clean and quiet. We received a lovely service in the morning (we were allowed to sleep in as we were very tired) and we were given a... More

Full coverage of every backpacker's needs. Comfy beds, clean toilets, proper showers, friendly and helpful staff, a bar, and it goes on... I stayed in swanky mint hostel though which is the new one they opened 2 weeks ago, and therefore not yet on tripadvisor. The design and effort put into the decoration and settings is ridiculous as well. Never... More

Swanky Crib is definitely the best hostel in Zagreb. When my girlfriend and I arrived, they had a free parking space for our car. When we checked in, they gave us a map and told us all about the different sites to see in Zagreb -- and we even got a few welcome drinks. The staff is extremely friendly, and... More

Incredibly smart hostel. Rather stylish. Large, clean rooms with balconies. Great communal area. Really modern and well equipped kitchens (one on each floor). Bathrooms were a bit flash! Free tea and coffee, cheapish beer available to buy. The manager was really helpful. Stayed late for us to arrive, welcomed us with a night cap, plenty of maps and information. Only... More

We spent here just 3 days, but it was really awesome! The hostel was very clean and quiet, and it's great located (2 mins walk from Konzum store and the tram stop). It's a great choice if you choose Zagreb for a few days!:)
