Slovenian hostels are always happy to welcome you, the nature is waiting for you to explore it in every corner of our beautiful Slovenia. Explore, travel and enjoy yourselves.

Have you heard of Slovenia? It’s a small but beautiful country, which has it all – the sea, the mountains, the lakes and kind people whom you can find everywhere. Maybe take a look at the blog Say HI to Slovenia  where you’ll find some tips for places to visit or an advice for buying a cheap plane ticket. Now let’s introduce some hostels. The first hostel is hiding under the Julian Alps above Jasna Lakes and just ten minutes away from the centre of Kranjska Gora, which is a paradise for sports enthusiasts. Ski slopes are waiting for skiers in the winter and in the summer there are many hiking and biking trails. Triglav national park, lake Zelenci, Vrata valley… You can explore that and many more from Youth Hostel Barovc

If you visit the city Brežice, Youth Hostel Brežice will welcome you in a modern hostel in the middle of the city park. Guests are able to use the kitchen, a joint area with TV and a terrace with chairs and deckchairs. The hostel is close to the Brežice Castle and the confluence of rivers Krka and Sava. Families will be happy to visit the city park with play area for the children and labelled trees in Slovene and Latin. Because you are accommodated right in the city centre, you have quick access to the castle, town hall, churches. Not far from here is also Terme Čatež spa resort, which is the biggest in Slovenia and perfect for families and individuals. Hostel Trbovlje lies in the centre of the city. It offers two apartments, a dorm with 14 beds and three rooms with twin beds. There’s a coffee shop near the hostel and a youth centre where many events happen. Trbovlje is a good starting point for hiking to nearby hills Kum, Mrzlica, Sv. Planina and others. You can also go rafting on Sava river, visit herbal and fruit gardens, parachute or visit a tourist farm. Museum of Zasavje has an exhibition about coal mining industry and Zasavje region, and you can also visit two coal miners’ apartments from different time periods and see how they lived. Definitely an interesting trip which will teach you a lot.

Youth Hostel Ajdovščina is located in Pale Sports Park only a short walking distance to the city centre. Youth Hostel provides its guests with a lot of sports activities. Hostel also took a little different steps – it is collaborating with biologists, ecologists and environmentalists and is developing a programme, which would educate youth through environmental protection camps. For some adventures in the city and outside the city, you can check this blog. Do you want to relax by the sea? In that case the hostel Debeli rtič is simply perfect. From here you can explore Ankaran and the whole Slovenian coast. It is also not far from the border with Italy so you can explore cities like Trieste. Ankaran was settled in 1072 where Venice monks found their home here when they were gifted the church of St. Apollinaris from 10th century. Ankaran definitely has some interesting history and the Slovenian coast is full of charming cities that simply have to be visited.
