Description via Hostelworld

Free Breakfast for the month of April!

The Wallaby is one of the most sociable hostels in Zagreb. Join us for pub crawls, pancakes and The Greatest F'n Game Show Ever!" As the owner of the Wallaby House Hostel and someone who has traveled for 14 years, I take pride in ensuring that every guest in my home is treated like a mate.

I'm an Australian who likes to have a good time, share stories and drink a few beers. I live in a big farken house close to Zagreb main bus station but away from the noise of the streets. The guest rooms are some of the most spacious you will see on your travels through Europe; I shit you not! We have a huge common room with 3 comfy couches, bean bags, plasma TV and fireplace which allows us the space needed to have beer pong tournaments, play The Greatest F’n Game Show Ever and provide extra seating for when we have family style dining. Luckily for you, we also have an outdoor area perfect for relaxing or for having a barbie, which we have during the summer. It is also a great place to catch a tan and drink some ice-cold beers when you are just looking for somewhere to relax.

Since this is an Aussie run hostel we make sure to have all of the Aussie favorites! In house we have FREE Milo and Vegemite.

PLEASE NOTE: If location is your priority DO NOT stay here. We are not in the heart of the city, we are the closest hostel to the main bus station in a quiet neighborhood. Being out of the city allows us to have what city hostels do not; a courtyard with deckchairs to chill, a BBQ area and free parking. The tram only takes 8 minutes. We rely on our reviews and we don’t want you to come here if you’re going to complain about the location. If having an awesome time and meeting fellow travellers is your priority then definitely stay here. We invite all guests to all our activities.

For any other needs there is a supermarket, bar, chemist, ATM and a basketball court all within 100 meters of The Wallaby. For easy access to and around the city there is a tram stop which can easily take you to town in just 8 minutes! Our location also puts us close to these other venues: Katran, one of Zagreb's biggest clubs with 4 floors of DJ’s, Indoor/outdoor go-karting track, 4D Cinema, a Pool hall and Lake Bundek which you can swim in during the warmer days.

What else do you want to know? Oh, our showers run on gas so they’re always friggin hot, the rooms have heating and air-con so your room is always at a comfortable temperature. Wallaby House also provides 24-hour reception so no matter what time of day you check in there will always be someone to show you to your room. The staff here can also guide you on where to go around town as well as the cheapest options. If you arrive early or leave late in the day you can leave your luggage here at no cost while you explore Zagreb: we’ll even give you a map! Remember, I’m a backpacker too and love to save money on my travels. There are actually 11 ways you can stay for free at The Wallaby or 7 ways to get a discounted stay, but you’ll have to research that. But research BEFORE you book on here. The Wallaby House Hostel.

Although this is not a 'party' hostel we take great care to create a great experience for everyone. It can get rowdy when playing some of the games but we still have quiet time for those wanting to get a good nights sleep (approx. 10:30pm - 11pm depending on the season) but for those who want to party into the night we have the best value pub crawl in town (4 Euros). I will gladly take you in to town myself and get you free shots at selected bars; because I’m friggin cool like that. We do not enforce a curfew but we do ask that you are respectful when returning from a night out!

What is included in the price: Wi-Fi, linens, towels, ticket printing, tea & coffee, Milo, Vegemite, sarcasm, humour, crudeness, pancakes on Tuesdays, Rakia on social nights, keyed lockers and on-site parking. Tourist tax of 8kn per day is NOT included. This is a tax you have to pay everywhere in Croatia when staying in hostels and hotels. This gets charged at check-in.

Feel free to bring your own food and alcohol. We have plenty of fridges to store all your food and drinks but the best part about our fully equipped kitchen is that we have a great selection of herbs & spices along with cooking oil for you to use.

So please, come to The Wallaby, make yourself at home and enjoy yourself! All dickheads will be asked to leave.

SPORTING games are available on request. We have sports channels and if they’re not on there then we will stream it. ALL State Of Origin games will be shown along with the NRL and AFL Grand Finals
