Save money but still enjoy comfort

Hostels used to be considered low-cost accommodation for travellers. Today hostels have a completely different reputation that is comparable to that of hotels of the same category. A more affordable price does not mean that you have to give up comfort. Some hostels, including in Slovenia, exceed expectations and, with their stories and design, appeal to more demanding travellers. Hostels welcome every generation under their roof – from young people and families to the elderly. They are the right choice for anyone who likes to socialise and meet new people.  Below are some of the best Slovenian hostels worth staying in.

Hostels that write special stories

Punkl, Ravne na Koroškem

The Koroška landscape is rich in forests and timber.

The rooms are named after the gastronomic specialities of Ravne and the Koroška region. The hostel is an excellent starting point for active adventures in its surroundings.

Hostel Situla, Novo mesto

Novo mesto is known as the town of situlae. You will not only find them in a museum, but also at a hostel in the centre of the town. The drawings of situlae, which decorate the corridors, rooms and bed linen, take guests back to the Early Iron Age, a period that significantly marked Novo mesto and the Dolenjska region. This also impressed the world-famous travel guide Lonely Planet, which years ago proclaimed the Hostel Situla the most beautiful hostel in Slovenia.
