Another wonderful hostel that has turned me off from booking at hotels! Marco (co-owner) and the attendant at night (I forgot her name) were so wonderful! Marco made sure we were comfortable and answered our million questions. He even helped us with our bags down (thanks Marco)! We would have stayed another night if it were not for our pre-booked accommodations in other cities. There was clearly quite a bit of effort put into the cleaning.

So why was Hostel Old Lab Zagreb great? Here’s why:
1. Clean
2. Clean
3. Spotless
4. Private Rooms
5. Fast Wi-Fi
6. Quiet
7. Superb location
8. Comfortable room
9. Still new
10. Comfortable beds
11. Walking distance to train station
12. Did I tell you it was clean?

We stayed at six hotels/hostels on our trip and my travel companion put this as number 1. Make sure you have cash to pay as this is there pay method for now (I believe it may change in the future). The only con are the flights of stairs to get to the hostel floor :-(. But hey, we needed the workout after eating strukes & burek :-). We plan to stay here again in the private room on our next Zagreb trip.

Dear Bianca,
thank you for your kind words.

It is always a pleasure to work with such interesting guests. We don't mind a lot of questions, we love to see someone excited about their stay in Zagreb.

We invite you to visit us again and to see the things that changed. You must try our breakfast (especially pršut)!

Regards,
Old Lab team

New, clean, and quiet too. Hostel made by experienced travellers two months ago. Location is central, about five minutes on foot from main square and same from main train station.

It's on the third floor, so if you're not sure-footed it's a bit hard.

Otherwise 100% recommendation. I'm a travel agent by profession so I don't often give 5 stars to accommodations.

We were directed to Old Lab Hostel which was fairly new and therefore not on hostelworld or similar comparison websites, and it was very lucky we did. It is the perfect place to stay and being new, everything is in perfect clean condition. It is fairly small which makes it much more of a personal and friendly stay. The beds are comfortable and there is air conditioning and wifi in the bedrooms. There is only one male and female toilet and bathroom which can mean a bit of a wait depending how many guests are staying. It is about 5 minutes from the main square and the same to the train station. The staff were lovely and keen to offer advice and have a chat. They also let us use the kitchen facilities whenever we needed which is always a plus when you are travelling on a budget (although Zagreb is very cheap anyway from a British point of view). Would definitely stay here again.
