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.

    Had an amazing stay at the castle hostel! Staff was friendly and helpful when it came to recommendations, we felt very safe the whole time, and the facilities felt clean. Atmosphere was great & everyone was so fun to be around!

    this was the best hostel experience i’ve had of my trip so far. it is a super social hostel and pretty much perfect for young travellers on a budget. i was worried before coming as i had read some negative reviews but the social atmosphere of the hostel put me at ease straight away. the staff did smoke 24/7 and there were flies in the kitchen and the room was small buttttt for €20 a night on lake bled you can’t really complain. the kitchen was very well equipped too so saved a lot of money by cooking there

    Good location near the castle and bus station. Great tips from the hosts when you ask for advice (if you don't ask you wont get much). Very friendly girls helping there, particularly Eva (I think that was her name). The kitchen could be much cleaner and they should recycle properly. Also lockers should be numbered, I had issues finding one free for my stuff.

    No reception area, so made it hard to work out where to go to check-in/out and who was a member of staff. I was in a private room and my shower was cold. Kitchen area was spacious and atmosphere good.

    All in all we had a good time in the hostel. The stuff is smoking weed all the time and the smell can be annoying some times. But they are super friendly and try to help you as good as they can! The pictures are not from this hostel, the dorms are actually bigger and nicer. Everything was as clean as you expect it to be in a hostel and the kitchen was nice too.

    Overall we had a nice stay here but the kitchen was full of flies. The rooms were too small for the number of people in them. On numerous occasions there wasn’t toilet roll in the bathroom. The people I met definitely made this stay better. However, the staff did give great recommendations on what to do and see.

    Staff where nice, location good and we got a good price considering how many nights we stayed, but would not go back again. It felt pretty filthy and smelled bad/weed all the time. Feel like the kitchen area is a must at a destination like this and they had what you need, but it was not it. I think it’s a great hostel if you’re planning on doing things all day every day, but there were no good common space and the rooms were not very spacious (the 8 dorm would be maybe a 4 dorm somewhere else).

    Don’t recommend!! Walls had mould all over which gave us all a cough, there was a leak through the roof that soaked all my clothes as well as important documents such as my passport, I had to pay €10 to rewash everything because it smelt of mould!! They changed our room but did not offer a refund, shower was cold and flies everywhere even where we slept, one of the guys was nice however the others seemed disinterested and just smoked weed the whole time. Much nicer hostels down the road.

    DO NOT STAY! Extremely overpriced, no reception or check-in area and piles of rubbish near the rooms. The supposed “hostel staff” were more interested in smoking weed and then were so high they could not answer any questions. Flies everywhere, rooms were small, do yourself a favour and stay down the road at Bled Hostel where the bloke who runs it is top class and they have the footie on.
