Swanky Mint

British daily newspaper The Sun have listed a Zagreb hostel on its list of the TOP 7 Luxury Hostels in Europe.

Swanky Mint in the Croatian capital has made the list which features some ‘swanky’ hostels from Russia, Portugal and Greece.

“Once upon a time you had to stay in a smoke-filled room, sharing a room with 12 strangers and lie on a mattress-bare steel-framed bunk bed to save the pennies”, The Sun starts off as it countdown’s the top luxury hostels in Europe.

In 2nd place of their round of the best 7 in Europe was the popular Swanky Mint hostel in Zagreb.

“On one of Zagreb’s longest and most exclusive residential streets sits Swanky Mint. Built in a former factory, this hostel is for the laid-back traveller that knows how to have fun”, writes The Sun, before adding.

“With a sun terrace, pool and garden, Swanky Mint means you can relax in the Croatian sun with minimal cares. Keeping to the factory theme, expect a chic, stripped-back aesthetic.”
