Location Advantage and Neighborhood of Swanky Mint
The Hostel Swanky Mint is right in Zagreb's city center. You have a tram station right next to the hostel, and in the case you are planning to come with a car, close to this area are many parking spots. The hostel also has its own parking. Swanky Mint is a quick 5-10 minute walk away from the main train station in Zagreb, and there are plenty of bars and shops nearby. But don't worry about noise - as this is an old industrial building, no noise from the street (whether it's cars, trams, or happy bar-hoppers) can penetrate these walls.
The hostel location could not be any better. Also, as mentioned above, we recommend to get a bike or longboard from the hostel. In no time you will be all over Zagreb, and can visit the Poet who refuses to leave, the botanical garden, and other beautiful hidden gems in Zagreb!

The history: The story starts in the later half of the 19th century, when the three Ondrušek brothers moved from their hometown in what’s now the Czech Republic to seek their fortunes.
Vilim Ondrušek settle in Zagreb, where he opened a dry cleaners.
Later, he met his future wife, Ana, who also ran a dry cleaners.
After the couple wed, they joined forces and bought the land where they would create their joint dry cleaners.
Later on down the line, they expanded into textiles and steam-operated dyeing.
That’s the factory that today is the Swanky Mint Hostel.
While you won’t find a dry cleaners here anymore (sorry, fancy travelers, you’ll have to launder your suits elsewhere), there are all sorts of touches around the hostel that pay homage to the building’s unique history.
And what about the swimming pool?
Since 2016, this 5 Star Hostel comes with a super cool swimming pool.
