Zagreb is a city with a growing tourist base, and therefore also a growing number of hostels to accomodate them. You probably won't have any luck finding a hostel in Zagreb by asking people on the street, because most residents don't even know they exist. Croatians generally almost never stay in hostels, so the people in Zagreb hostels will most probably be exclusively foreigners. A lot of Zagreb hostels tend to be located in either smaller side streets or not in the immediate center of the city. The hostels in Zagreb with a longer tradition are, however, listed on the major hostel-booking sites.
Although the city gets many young travelers and backpackers, the entrepreneurs in Zagreb have yet to take advantage of this business opportunity. Hence, many Zagreb hostels are run by young Croatians who have traveled abroad as backpackers themselves. Unfortunately, this also means a lack of high-quality hostels as can be found in major Western European cities. They are usually located in converted apartment buildings or private houses, which can add to the charm and personal feel, but can also mean less-than-ideal standards in hygiene. In comparison to other Western European hostels, in general, the hostels in Zagreb are pretty much on the same or slightly lower scale, but they are all very similar to one another.
In terms of activities, Zagreb has yet to discover the full potential of offering things like city bike tours or pub crawls. You might find that the to-do board in your hostel offers suggestions of travel to nearby cities or tourist destinations (taken from the nearest tourist information office), but lacks organized activities for foreigners within the city itself. Most Zagrebians speak at least a little English, and are generally friendly, so asking for directions to tourist sites or for general suggestions about activities is usually met with kindness and interest. Zagreb residents, especially the younger generation, tend to like foreigners and are glad to help out.

HI - Zagreb Hostel

Zagreb Travel Tips & Suggestions
I just went to Zagreb for some cheap dental work as it's about less than half the price in the U.K. The local bread and cheese are very good, and the seafood is nearly the best in Europe and very cheap. Cheap accommodation is scarce but it's a beautiful city for a long weekend.
I have traveled through Europe a few times over and Zagreb will always remain my favourite city -- the people, weather, and the nightlife is superb. It's uncomplicated and great fun, however, accommodation is a major headache.
You cannot stay one weekend in Zagreb and think that you can have your own complete opinion 'cause...you haven't seen it all. I have lived in Croatia for 21 years and I'm still exploring and finding something every year that I didn't know that we had! For staying in Zagreb, in my opinion the most important thing is to meet and get friendly with somebody smart from Zagreb. Because you can spend a fortune here, or you can spend very little money. I know a lot of people who actually LIVE IN Zagreb and can give you the right answer about things like: where is good blues/rock'n roll club, where I can eat the best "chevapi," where is the best cheap beer?
I was sguck in Zagreb for 6days, however in my time there I fell in love with the city. The old town matches many of the more popular cities in Europe and the quality for the money you put in is great. The food is very good and nighlife is fantastic. My recomendations would be to go to the Jazz bar - great live music and the most friendly of clubs ive ever been to. Also try a day trip to Krapina or Trakoscanwhere youll be delighted by the views of the lakes and the history of mankind! I would also recommend taking in a football match while your there - the crowds chant some amazing things and you'll be left speechless by the end of it!
While it might be a difficult city to fly into, once you are there you definitely know it has been worth the journey. The architecture, the laid back atmosphere, the outstanding food, the friendly locals... Zagreb's really a stunning place that so many people overlook when travelling around Europe! And it doesn't break the bank either, unlike many European cities. I know I will be back on my next travels!
Zagreb is a great city, let's hope not too many people discover it! It is a proud city with beautiful proud people. Only on my third visit did I discover there was an entire old city hidden away behing the main square. Simply stunning. Driving north towards Hungary you find yourself travelling along a windy fairy tale of a road, between tall trees - a moving experience!
— Bart Groen
Zagreb is one of the prettiest cities I have ever been to. I have lived there for nine years and I can assure you that you cannot see all it has to offer in two days. People there are friendly and if you get acquainted with someone who lives there they can introduce Zagreb to you. From parks to museums and even pastry shops, it is amazing, and if you are young and like to have fun, night life in Zagreb can be very satisfying. All you can do there is relax and have fun, I know I will when I go this summer there.
Zagreb is the capital of Croatia, but it has a small-town feel. It's very easy to get around and is one of the most relaxed capitals in Europe. Unless you're here to live the life, however, the sights of Zagreb can be done in a day (2 days including the museums).
