Property Description

After a long day of exploring an exciting new area, nothing feels better than to come home to a place where you can unwind and share stories with fellow travellers over a home cooked meal, a local beer or maybe even a slice of the famous Bled cream cake. All of the above is at the tips of your fingers. Step into a small town where people smile to greet each other, a place where everyone is willing to give you a helping hand and share a drink in the evening.

Just a few minutes walk from Lake Bled, Castle Hostel 1004 sits beneath the Bled castle in the old part of the town. You can enjoy a comfortable bed, hot showers and make use of our well equipped kitchen to create home made meals with other guests. If cooking isn't your calling then don't worry, there are plenty of affordable restaurants close by offering anything you might be craving including traditional Slovenian food.

Because a general feeling of kindness is hard to come by, that is exactly what we strive towards. We want to give you a stress free experience of Bled and it's beautiful surroundings. Our team is made up of friendly, fluent English speakers who are ready to answer any question you may have. Getting around Bled won't be a problem as the town is small, but we'll provide you with marked maps upon arrival to help you explore the area, and of course some helpful tips from a locals point of view.

When the skies are clear and swimming in the lake simply doesn't cut it anymore, you can treat yourself to some adrenaline fueled activities such as rafting on the local Sava river, canyoning at the edge of the Triglav National Park, or if you prefer a birds eye view, then paragliding or even skydiving might be the adventure for you. If the weather isn't in your favour you can still have a blast as you have computers, books, cards/board games and a guitar available in the common area along with a ps4 on which you can play out a friendly Fifa tournament or enjoy a movie on Netflix.

Our comfortable beds each have their own power point and reading lamp. Bed linen is included so don't worry, we've got you covered. Free wi-fi is provided to help you stay connected, and towels are available to rent. Each guest has access to a locker in their room, but a padlock is required. There is no curfew or lockout so feel free to come and go as you please. Check out is at 11:00, but take it easy because we offer full use of the common facilities and luggage storage until 21:00.

Here in Castle Hostel 1004, we truly believe that we live in a small paradise. Come join us, visit Bled. View House Rules

    When I got to the place, no-one was around, and they were fixing up the place. However, when they saw me and understood that I had a booking they did everything to help me. I got to stay in another (empty) hostel for free, I had a few beers with the guys, and also got to loan a bicyckle. These are definitely some of the best guys I've met through travelling around the world - and I cannot recommend enough! Hopelfully I go back to Bled one day, and if so I'd definitely stay at Castle Hostel!

    As someone who stays at dozens of hostels a year around the world this was the single BEST experience I am yet to have. The staff went out of their way to ensure that our stay was perfect. The rooms were clean, functional, quiet and comfortable. All facilities were excellent and we felt safe and secure the entire time. The location is absolutely central while maintaining a peaceful distance. The stay was brilliant value for money. I could not reccomend this place more highly. S-U-P-E-R-B. 10/10

    So once I finally found the hostel I quite enjoyed it Signage could definitely be updated, and would be nice if it said Castle Hostel 1004, not Bled Hostel 1004 Staff was amazing, very helpful, gave so much good detailed info on places to explore in the area There was a guest in my dorm that started to cause a problem, and the staff immediately took action and removed him to ensure everyone else would have a calm evening

    Was a very enjoyable if short stay. Outdoor terrace was a good place to meet people even if it badly needs lighting at night. Impressive view from the terrace too.

    Location is perfect, just few steps from the lake, bus station and supermarket, but when I got there, unluckely it was closed because of the low season, but they relocated me in another wonderful hostel few steps ahead, staff was very helpful and friendly.

    Everything was great! Staff were friendly and super helpful! We stayed in room three and the WiFi didn’t really reach there. They should get a mesh network like google WiFi. Also the shower hardware needs updating (coming out of wall, etc.). Otherwise there was nothing to complain about, a really great hostel overall. I highly recommend them!

    No receptionist so we waited outside a locked building for 30minutes. Very few toilets for a very lot of people, some toilets and showers we're broken. Generally all the guests were always in each other's way. We wish we would have stayed in BLED HOSTEL... Next time!
