This striking office-block conversion in a former newspaper HQ offers some of the swankiest hostel accommodation in the region. With a high proportion of doubles and triples, solid beds and contemporary decor, it’s more like a good, cheap hotel than a shoestring backpacker option. Computers on every floor and witty graphics (rooms are labelled ‘secretariat’, ‘import-export’ and other officious-sounding names) play ironic tribute to the building’s businesslike past. Rooms on the northern side have great views of Zagreb’s twin-pronged cathedral. The large basement includes a café with breakfast options and a snooker table. Triple and quad rooms also available.
