The Dots Hostel Reviews

The Dots Hostel is flashpacker-type hostel in a bright, spacious setting in the city center. Reception is open twenty-four hours a day and the hostel has friendly and helpful staff who are available to answer any questions about Zagreb or onward travel to neighboring places. Strong Wi-Fi is available for free throughout the hostel, including in the rooms.

The Location

The Dots Hostel is well-located in the city center -- a five-minute walk to the center of Old Town. About a twenty-minute drive from the airport, Dots Hostel can arrange airport pick-up or drop-off. The hostel is also close to the main bus station. It is possible to walk, though it is about a twenty-minute walk. Taxi service is also available for hire. Once at the hostel, you need only walk out the front door and you are right around the corner from a gorgeous, lush park; restaurants; bakeries; bars; shopping; ATMs; and the city center. Maps of the city and surrounding areas are available at the hostel. The hostel is clearly marked with signage that is easy to see from the street.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The Dots Hostel has a variety of room configurations -- there is a dorm room with bunk beds and shared bath, as well as private rooms with both en suite and shared baths. The rooms are bright, spacious, and nicely appointed with ample charging points, free towels, and large windows. Large lockers are provided in the dorm room and some of the private rooms. There is neither air conditioning nor fans in the rooms -- the only way to have air circulating is to keep the windows open.

On the main floor of the hostel, there are numerous shared bathrooms available. The bathrooms are clean and there is great water pressure and ample hot water. There are hooks on the wall for towels/clothes, but there is no space in the showers for toiletries. On the bottom floor of the hostel, there is one male and one female bathroom available, which is sufficient, as there are only a few rooms downstairs.

Common Spaces

The Dots Hostel has two large common spaces -- one is shared with reception and has comfortable seating. The other is a dining area with lots of tables and chairs. The rooms are large and bright and very nicely decorated with many modern touches. Bowls of fruit and cookies are on every table. Coffee and other beverages are available for purchase. A continental breakfast is provided for a small fee. The hostel is a no-smoking environment. The hostel tends to be a bit more on the quiet side. It is not as social as other hostels and certainly not a party hostel.


Overall, The Dots Hostel is an excellent choice for your stay in Zagreb. As there is no air conditioning in the hostel, the only thing that might make the hostel even better is for them to add a fan in the rooms.

Perfect for a one-week stay as a solo traveler

Spring 2016 I stayed in a private room for a week. Inviting dcor and excellent desk staff made for a memorable stay. This is not a party place. Loved the location and great breakfast. Staff especially helpful to an older traveler.
