Hobo Bear Hostel
Hobo Bear is a modern, laid back hostel ideally located in the historical center of Zagreb, within a walking distance to all major tourist attractions, shopping, bars, restaurants and nightlife, easy to reach from bus and train station as well as from the airport.
Hobo Bear found its perfect spot in a typical downtown street dating from the beginning of the last century, named after the renaissance painter Medulic. Like renaissance was all about the 'Man', Hobo Bear is all about its guests, whether they are travelers, backpackers, explorers, modern day hobos, adventurers or simply people looking for some fun.
From our doorstep Zagreb is easy to explore. Just a couple of steps away is the Zagreb's busiest shopping street Ilica and in less than 10 minutes walk you can reach all of Zagreb's top sights, as well as museums, antiques market, vibrant terraces in the Flower square 'coffee zone', top bars and clubs. And when you decide to go exploring the popular places outside the city centre - the tram station is just around the corner!
In our neighbourhood you can find everything a traveler might need - pharmacies, ATMs and exchanges, a post office, supermarkets, an open market, as well as places to eat for everyone's taste.
Not only the location was carefully chosen to fit the travelers' needs - Hobo Bear is 'traveler-tailored' from the inside as well. In an authentic 100-year old building we created a unique place with a modern soul where you start feeling 'at home' the moment you come through the door. We like to say it is big enough to gather a party team, yet small enough to offer cozy, warm and friendly atmosphere.
We accommodate our guests in comfortable dorms and private rooms, waiting for you to fill your batteries between your roaming adventures and parties. In our spotlessly clean bathrooms you can take a hot shower 24 hours a day and in our fully equipped modern kitchen you can sit down and talk to your new buddies with your mouth full of warm cooked food.
One place that really gives Hobo Bear its special character and atmosphere is our unique, cozy common room - with original brick walls and arches it resembles an old wine cellar or a castle, with a big difference in temperature, of course :-) It is the heart of our hostel - its a living room, lounge, a place to relax, listen to music, read a book or write one, watch a film, surf the free Internet, hang out, meet people, share a beer with your new friends, contemplate over a cup of tea, read you future from a coffee mug, fall in love, a perfect place to kick-start your night of club and bar hopping ...you choose what's it going to be for you...
Hobo Bear is owned and managed by experienced travelers, who designed it to provide you the best stay and a memorable experience in one of the liveliest cities of Central Europe. Our multilingual staff's familiarity with the city and Croatia will help you unlock the secrets of Zagreb and find activities suited to your taste, as well as recommend hidden treasures off the beaten path. With your free maps and brochures, you will get insider tips how to enjoy more and fall into tourist traps less. Share with us your unforgettable moments and adventures and we'll help you make the most of your Zagreb experience!
In the meantime, find a comfy corner in our lounge and take a time out to relax, have a drink and just feel the unique Zagreb vibe...
See you soon...
...and don't forget your free welcome drink!
