Book a summer vacation in Slovenia

It seems like yesterday was the winter and now it’s already summer. Where is this time going? Anyways, do you have plans for this summer? If not, I’d recommend you to visit Slovenia. It’s a beautiful country with lots to offer and some really nice hostel to welcome you. Just visit us and see.

If you’re hesitating, check out our HI Slovenia blog, where you will find some tips on what to visit and some cheap plane tickets to Slovenia (or nearby countries). Or you can visit blog HI Alpe Adria since Slovenia is a part of the region and read some interesting articles about Slovenia. Now let me introduce you some hostels, where you can stay.

@Youth Hostel Slovenj Gradec
Hostel Slovenj Gradec is located on the left bank of Suhadolnica river and is a part of the Cultural centre Slovenj Gradec. It offers modern rooms with up to four beds and four apartment suites that offer accommodation for three, four or eight people and a kitchen. Slovenj Gradec is a small town, but it has great history. It has remained connected with its history and culture. Hostel Idrija waits for you on a little hill above the city so you immediately get a great view on the city. Don’t worry, a walk to the city centre will take you only five minutes so you won’t be cut out from the city. If you’ll come in the summer and will want to cool down, I can recommend a tourist mine, which is included on the UNESCO list of World Cultural and Natural Heritage. After a presentation, you will put on your helmet and an overcoat and discover the underground of Idrija. How fascinating!

The next is the hostel Pekarna in Maribor, which is also part of the cultural centre. The hostel lies in a building, which used to be a bakery, built at the turn of the century by the Austro-Hungarian army. It is wholly renovated and modernly designed and offers seven rooms with four beds or you can book studio apartment or suites. I may be a little biased since Maribor is my hometown, but it is truly a wonderful city. You can read some interesting things in the article Let’s Visit Maribor. Hostel Bovec is in the centre of Bovec, a small town in Slovenia, located between high mountains and famous Soča river. It is a big hostel with a fully equipped kitchen and even a garage. It is perfect for adrenalin adventures on the Soča river or for hiking, swimming, anything your mind can wish for. And if that doesn’t impress you, maybe check out the story of the hostel and its fun owners.

If you prefer the sea, go to Izola and visit hostel Alieti, which is a quiet hostel in the city centre. They offer 25 beds and lots of charm. Our volunteer Nastja wrote a little more about the hostel and the people running it. Izola also offers a lot of charm. Just sit by the sea, listen to some music and enjoy in good sea-food. Believe me, there are a lot of things to try and experience.

And last but not least, there is hostel Tresor in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. The building was once a bank vault and it was transformed into a modern hostel. The hostel has 29 rooms, which are named after world currencies. It is a step away from the Prešeren Square, Dragon Bridge and Ljubljana Castle. Lots to see and lots to experience!
