Slovenian hostels appropriate for groups

As every tourist agency you probably also face the problem of how to find a good price and a quality stay for your group. We can help you, for we have been taking care of a unique and high quality network of Slovenian Youth Hostel for a number of years. Various adventures, from sleeping in a Kars house surrounded by nature to breakfast in a swimming vault in downtown Ljubljana, Slovenian hostels really have a varied offer and a good reputation known well outside the Slovenian borders. This month we’re presenting 6 hostels with great locations for discovering the beauty of Slovenia, but also good quality for even the most demanding group.


For youth organization or sport clubs, who’d like to visit in a group, we recommend the hostels: Hostel Radlje ob Dravi and Hostel Brežice, which are especially appropriate for hosting groups and organizing seminars, meetings, conferences and preparations, for they are a part of a youth centre, which by its definition allows for rooms where people can meet, socialize, create and have access to equipment and services needed for a successful meeting. From the club rooms to free internet access, places to hold events, computer rooms, musical and multimedia studios and sport halls, along with meeting rooms, classrooms and workshops... you’ll find it all in these two hostels.  A very similar offer can also be found at the Hostel Proteus, which is part of the high-school dormitory but an independent unit and its own meals and a high quality board suitable also for large groups.

Next three hostels are at extraordinary locations in Slovenia. In the country’s biggest city – Ljubljana – we can offer you a board at a deluxe standard Hostel Park, right in the heart of the city and is a great place for exploring the national capital. Just a few kilometres away there is one of the most beautiful Alpine resorts – Bled – which we strongly recommend you to visit. It’s known for the mild and healthy climate and the lake water. This pearl of Slovenian nature attracts businessmen, artists, athletes, researchers, nature lovers… young and old from all over the world alike. We are sure you won’t be disappointed either. You can spend the night at the Hostel Bledec, just a five minute walk from the lake. And let us not forget the beautiful Slovenian coast, where we invite you to visit the town of Izola – an old Mediterranean coastal town, where the tradition of winemaking and fishing draw you in the magical autumn, to discover the mystical past and friendliness of the people making up the most idyllic mosaic of joy to the senses. Your group will be well taken care of in the Hostel Alieti, offering 25 beds in dormitory rooms in one of the old town houses in the very heart of Izola.
