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

    Cool hostel with a great atmosphere and common area. Staff was very helpful! I wish the patio was open a little later, but that’s my only qualm (I get it though, it’s definitely to prevent noise complaints late from neighboring houses, etc.)

    Great location near the bus station, bars and restaurants in Bled. Only a 4 minute walk to the lake. The rooms were small and you might be unlucky to find your room is near the front door, so you'll hear drunken revellers coming back all night, but otherwise, it has a lovely terrace, social area and kitchen. Good hostel!

    Our 2 night stay at this hostel was great - the atmosphere in particular was amazing - very social and lovely staff and guests. The kitchen was big which was a bonus and the rooms were a good size. The only (but big) downside was that there were bed bugs found!!! Both myself and another traveller we spoke to in a different room were bitten badly by bed bugs and we’ve now gone back and looked at recent reviews which has also suggested this problem but seems it hasn’t been fixed! Avoid room 2!!!

    The place was alright. I also stayed at the Bled Hostel which I found to be better. This place is nice a bit awkward in layout. They need to do something about the lock of one of the toilets as it's easy to get locked in. Place was fairly clean but when you step out of the shower you step I to a puddle and the light kept turning off because it's on a sensor. Great cooking facilities!

    Be aware of mostique (or bed bugs!!! I am not sure which one was that). But when I slept at night, I can feel that there are things biting me, and when I woke up in the morning, I noticed that there was more than 30 red spots from the insect bite all over my body. The hostel is all right, but please bring some mostique repellant.

    Centrally located in Bled, with a great terrace (unfortunately, I had bad weather during my stay). Enough toilets and shower rooms for all the guests, and cleaned every day. The staff was helpful and kind, offering tips to enjoy my stay. The only negative thing could be the size of the rooms; I stayed in a room which may be designed for four people, but we were six there. Moreover, the light didn't work the first day, so we needed to be guided by our phones light.

    Poor directions given from the train stations. States on policies on the website that credit cards are accepted, however there wasn’t a card machine, and we were asked to pay in exact change. Luggage storage was available but when we came to retrieve ours we found the storage room had been unlocked the whole time, which was apparently normal. Finally, there must be staff in the reception area at all times.
