Zagreb’s Swanky Mint Hostel became the first hostel in the Croatian capital yesterday with a pool for guests….

Swanky Mint Hostel, which was earlier this year named Croatia’s best hostel after receiving the highest customer ratings on hostelworld.com, opened a new attraction for guest on Saturday – a swimming pool.

The hostel, which is located on Zagreb’s main street (Ilica 50), is the first in the country with a swimming pool that guest can cool off in. Located on the terrace of the Swanky Monkey Garden, guests can now chill out with a drink and cool off from the summer heat in the capital.

Swanky Mint Hostel, which is one of the few in the capital that is busy all year round and not just in the summer, has 14 different rooms with 69 beds.

“We are most full between spring and autumn, then in December, whilst in January and February we are the fewest amount of guests. Most are foreigners with the most this summer coming from Australia, America and Britain. Also guests from New Zealand and increasingly more from South America, mainly Brazil,” PR and Marketing Manager Tina Sarajlić said.
