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

    Such a sick hostel! Ideal location only 3 mins from lake bled, a real nice vibe to it where you can’t meet loads of other people, felt really secure and safe. Would totally recommend if staying in bled!

    Great atmosphere. Communal space indoors was nice for eating dinner and the outdoor terrace was perfect for meeting people. Terrace closes at 10. Only a few one-stall toilets so sometimes it was a bit of a wait. Overall great stay and good location. Helpful staff.

    The hostel had a great location, so it was very easy to walk to the lake. The staff gave us the great recommendation to go to the Vintgar Gorge, which was lovely! But the beds were very open so if someone turned on their own light the whole room would be lit, which was a bit inconvenient. But overall, for a short stay it was pleasant and allowed you to see the most of Bled!

    My least favourite hostel of 3 weeks travelling around Slovenia. Would not recommend for solo travellers or anyone over 25. This hostel attracts groups of young interrailers who want to party. Room was way too small for the number of beds. Bathrooms very claustrophobic. Lockers broken when I arrived. Only positive is that there is a nice terrace.

    PLEASE NOTE: I have been badly bitten by bed bugs on my last night of stay in a four bed room. I have emailed about asking for some type of compensation which has been ignored, quite disappointing. Besides that, the staff were helpful and friendly and the hostel is located conveniently in Bled

    Bed bugs! Got eaten alive by them. Contacted the hostel my email numerous times to let them know and no response. Also overpriced for an average hostel.
