why visit us


In Thailand, soi is called the small side streets along the busy arteries, which with their lush life sustain the tissue of Asian cities. The atmosphere of Soi Fusion Bar is just like that. In the murmur of the sprawling terraces that extend from the Swanky Mint hostel, the Soi Fusion Bar is seated in a sort of side alley, in a quiet corner of Swanky. With several exterior tables surrounded by graffiti and old mailboxes and a small interior space with open-plan kitchen, bare minimalist tables and a counter, it is reminiscent of Japanese and Thai outlets that run markets throughout the night.

Soi Fusion’s Chef Vid Nikolić is one of the most famous chefs in Croatia and this restaurant is his first solo project. The restaurant offers a solid range of Asian dishes - from vibrant bowls of tuna poke to sizzling satay skewers, and all served with eco-friendly dishes and utensils, just like it fits the Swanky spirit.

swanky pool

The Swanky Mint is famous for it’s pool since it’s the only hostel with a pool in Zagreb, and not to mention the beautiful surroundings - forrest and flowers on one side and a view of the historical city buildings on the other.

The pool is seasonal so make sure to visit us between May and October when it’s open, but don’t be sad if you come during other months since we have a cool dome on top of the pool during winter.
