Ravnice is four floors high, with a private garden. In the garden you can dry your clothes, have a barbeque, or just sit in the quiet. The lady who owns the hostel lived in Australia for more than 10 years and speaks excellent English, German, and Italian. Downstairs in the hostel is the reception, Internet, and TV room. In the reception is some information about the city and tram times.
The second and third floors have flats, each with a kitchen, living area, and balcony. There are two bathrooms, three bedrooms (each for four people), and one bedroom for two people. The top floor is like a dorm, all open with bunk beds for sleeping. I stayed in a room for four people, but there were just two of us.
The kitchen in the flat has all kinds of equipment, which makes it easier to spend less money when you are on a budget. There is cooker, fridge, many pans, cups and plates, etc. There is coffee, tea, milk, oil, salt, pepper, and many other things that everyone can use. Nearby is a supermarket, so you can buy what you want for your meals.
As Ravnice is not in the city centre, it is quiet at night. Near Ravnice is Maksimir Park, where there is a small zoo and nice places for walking.
To come to Ravnice take tram no.11 or 12 when you are at the main square. At the train station take tram no. 4, and at the bus station,tram 7. Take the tram at the direction Dubrava or Dubec.
There is a fixed rate for staying here of 99 KN or 13.50€ per night. If you stay more than three nights, they offer you a reduced price.
