Everything perfect. Very nice room, good breakfast, not far from the National Park. The hosts even drive you to the entrance of the park if they have the time.
I had to cancel because the borders were closed between Hungary and Croatia. I emailed the management to let them know that I couldn't come and explain my situation and disappointment. You would think that they might understand or at least dignify my email with a response given that the situation was out of my control but I heard nothing and was still charged. Seems pretty unprofessional. When I return to Croatia to visit the parks I will not be staying here.
Hostel is located far from entrance 2 of the lake 1.5km. If you did not rent a car you had to walk about 30 min. Also market was so far from the hostel. Wifi signal is so weak in my room. And host did not explained about breakfast service. Only atmosphere is good. 차없으면 가지마세요. 여섯시 지나서 플리트비체에서 나와서 걸어가는데 해지고 가로등 없는 산속길 30분걸어야함ㅋ와이파이신호약하고 아침밥돈내면 주는지 어쩐지 설명도 안해줘서 걸어서 15분정도 등산해야 겨우 찾을수 있는 마트 두번 왔다갔다 했네요.
Our room was clean and well-furnished. The location may be slightly far from Plitvice National Park but it was still within walkable distance. The owner was really kind too, driving us out to the bus stop when it was raining.
I cannot say enough good things about this place or the owner! Our room was very spacious, with a couch and sitting area, and the bed was SO comfortable. The best part was the breakfast - well worth the extra 6 euro! Homemade and delicious - and huge! You'll be set for the day. The thing to note about plitvice is it's very small with basically no dining options so plan accordingly! But well worth seeing the beautiful park and staying with this lovely family :)
Very nice couple operating the hostel! The man was very kind and told us amazing stories about his father, who was the village's legendary musician and an epic character. Breakfast is cheap and delicious and an amazing value for money, you should definitely get it while you stay here since there aren't many places to get food around the area. The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable and the complimentary welcome rakija shot was super appreciated. We would come back anytime.
We had a very pleasant and quiet stay - our room was very cosy and there was a kitchen where we were able to cook food, which was good as there are not many places to eat nearby. The staff were very welcoming and friendly aswell. The only issue we had was having to walk to the main entrance of the National Park from the accommodation - 20 minutes walk along a main road with barely any pedestrian pathway
We stayed in Villa Jezerka for 2 nights and it was awesome! It really felt like a cabin in the wood with apple trees just outside the door and chilly morning. The villa was very close to the Mukinje bus station (about 2-3 minutes walk), groceries (5 minutes walk) and Plitvice Lake (10-15 minutes walk) The home owner was really warm, helpful with directions and questions, and made us felt like we're home! The only thing to improve was wifi. We had a really slow wifi connection during our stay.

Lovely quiet little place to stay. Staff friendly and greeted us with a home brewed shot on arrival. Option to get breakfast for €6 per person. About a 20 min walk to entrance of National Parks. Staff kindly offered to drive us to the national park entrance with our backpacks on our departure day.
We had a good time at Villa Jezeka. Everything you need is present in the apartment. One minus point is that the matras is a little too thin. Consequently we had some backache, but after a nice walk in beautiful Plitvice you forget about this ;). The hosts of the apartment were very nice: they offered us a local alcoholic drink and they were always ready to help with answering our questions.
The hostel owners are really welcoming and friendly offering us some of their homemade liquor on arrival as well as showing us how to get to the park and local shop/restaurant. The room was clean and the facilities were good although a kitchen would have been useful as there is only one restaurant nearby so good choice is limited. Walk to gate 2 takes about 20 minutes and the bus stop is about 3 minutes walk from the hostel.
Excellent hosts - very friendly. Pointed out the best way to get Back from the park and gave us a ride to the park entrance. Very nice, clean room.
Great location, nice room. Only missing a refrigerator! The staff was nice but not very informative. For checking out could not find anyone of the staff to pay, ended up leaving the money in the room after 1hour waiting for someone to come around
Lovely room and kind hosts who gave me a lift to park entrance.
A kitchen free to use would be nice. Otherwise, great hostel!

Our triple room had a full kitchenette, which was great. It could use better lighting however; very dark for cooking dinner. We really appreciated that the owner drove us to the national park entrance in the morning!
We were worried initially as to how to get to the villa as we weren't sure the bus taken from the Zagreb bus station would stop there. However once we got off the bus the directions on the hostel world map was easy to follow. We had a warm welcome from a lively hostess who showed us to our room and offered us a welcome drink. The room was clean and comfortable. Then she pointed out where we could get some dinner and how her husband would drive us to the park in the morning. Very good stay!
Great place to stay! Loved that we were welcomed by the owner with shots of homemade liquor! Our room was very clean with good air con (have to pay an extra £3 for this),comfy bed,private bathroom,wifi and cable TV! We appreciated been able to utilize the laundry facilities here for a very good price. Easy to access Plitvice Lakes from here as Mukinje bus stop (next bus stop from Plitvice Lakes entrance 2) is just at the end of the street. Restaurant and market are also walking distance.
Great place. Lovely owner. Excellent location. Thanks for having us.
The couple who owned this place were really lovely and welcoming. Breakfast was also very nice as well! :)
