While Zagreb is well served with medium- and top-range hotels, budget choices are relatively thin on the ground and should be reserved well in advance. There is a growing number of backpacker hostels, many of which offer private double rooms as well as bunk beds in dorms. Zagreb tourist office has a list of locals offering private rooms or apartments in the city centre; a couple of dedicated agencies can also help (see Hostels). There’s no decent campsite in the city, but you can pitch a tent in the garden of Ravnice Youth Hostel for 60Kn per person.
