Three brand new hostels have opened up in Zagreb just one month, increasing the capital’s accommodation capacity by three times than it was this time last year. Hostel Chameleon and Hostel Old Lab, both located in the heart of downtown Zagreb in Preradovićeva street, and Das Hostel in Hatz street, which opens this week and will have a rock n’ roll theme, will all open within a month of each other, bringing the total number of hostels in the city to 42.

In 2013 the number of hostels in Croatia grew by 40% from the year previous. Around 140 hostels exist now in Croatia, but it is Zagreb which is growing faster than the rest of the nation thanks to the tourism boom it is experiencing. Zagreb has enjoyed double-digit growth in arrivals in the first half of this year with 286,381 tourists visiting.
