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

    Castle Hostel has been one of my best Hostel experiences. It was such an amazing community, from the fellow backpackers to the staff everyone was great! As soon as we walked in the staff helped us orient ourselves and gave us several good suggestions for hikes, food, and other activities. Also, my bus left at 12:00 am on sunday, so I checked out on saturday day, but Castle let me store all my belongings there (for free) while I hiked for a day. Overall, great experience,

    Great little hostel. Easy to meet and chat with people. Super chill & cool staff who showed me lots to do in the area. Pretty clean, they ask you not to wear shoes indoors and you get comfy slippers. Showers are in individual rooms with a sink which is cool.

    The highlight was the cleanliness, the staff and the common room. The staff went out of their way to help you plan the best possible day; they know the best spots to go. The common room was a social space that had many people engaging with each other. I went travelling with quite a few different people during the three days I stayed at this hostel. It was very affordable and it was a short walk (5 minutes) to Lake Bled. A grocery store is within 2 minutes of walking which was handy.

    Excellent location. 3 mins walk from bus station and the lake itself. Little supermarket just around the corner. Nice common room and brilliant kitchen. Plenty toilets and showers. Everything is kept very clean and tidy... Except for the mould under some of the bunk beds/mattresses and on shower ceilings. Most of the staff are very friendly and willing to help you explore the area.
