Property Description

Please make sure to read the full description before booking with us, as it contains some very USEFUL information.

At Falling Lakes we are adventure and nature enthusiasts, who are keen to show you what Plitvice Lakes National Park and the surrounding area has to offer.

We are located in the nearest town on the southern border of the national park, called Korenica and are a 15min drive from entrance 2. We offer a cheap daily shuttle service from the hostel to the park and back (the price of the ticket is 20 kn oneway). The shuttle leaves at 8:00am in the morning from the hostel and comes back at 4:00pm from the national park (the exact times of the shuttles may vary depending on the time of the year). When we fill up the first shuttle, we add a second or third every 30 min thereafter depending on how many guests need to go on a given day. Should you buy your ticket to Plitvice in advance? We get this question all the time. The national park recommends that you purchase your tickets in advance, and if you want you can do so on their official webpage. If you do that, please choose entrance 2 as the point of entry with the time slot from 8am to 9am. If you don't have a ticket or don't want to buy one prior to your arrival, no worries you will still be able to get in and we will explain how upon checkin :)

For your nature fix you can partake in many other outdoor activities while staying with us. Here are our three highlights: the pljesevica mountain trek that leads upto a famous military base from former Yugoslavia (this free hike starts right outside the hostel and takes you to the border of bosnia with stunning views, hint: it’s the hike with the awesome rock in the picture), kayaking (a full day of going down rapids and waterfall jumping, no previous experience required), mrsinj grad hike (sunset hike, gorgeous views, remnants of an old fortress). There are numerous other hikes and activities you can do in the region just ask us when you check-in :) Find us online for more info.

Arriving by bus: Korenica has its own bus stop, so when booking your bus tickets to the hostel make sure you get a ticket to Korenica and not to Plitvice, otherwise you will end up stranded and in the middle of nowhere with miles of surrounding wilderness. You can purchase your bus tickets on, or if the online sales are closed for your dates you can buy them at any local bus station, or even directly from the bus driver. The bus stop in Korenica is a short walking distance from the hostel, so are all other amenities like supermarkets, restaurants, bank etc.

With sustainability in mind we designed our hostel to have solar thermal water heating, LED lighting and composting of all organic waste. Our hostel has comfy dorms with custom made bunk beds that have built-in lockers, a personal plug and a reading light. In our common room area you can hang out, read, play board games or enjoy a locally brewed beer. Some of our other services include: free wifi, free parking, free linens, free locks for rent, towels for rent, shared fully-equipped kitchen, luggage storage, outdoor patio, BBQ, and lots of free activities and events.

Please note that our RECEPTION CLOSES AT 10pm, so make sure to arrive within our reception hours. E-mail us if you cannot arrive before 10pm. View House Rules

    Located in a small, quiet town near the national park. Just a 20 minute drive by car from the NP or a (paid) ride by the hostel shuttle. The hostel staff is great and will help you with any questions regarding hostel, excursions or whatever. The rooms are spacy and the common rooms are well equipped and there is also a terrace. The hostel also offers hikes and events. Great price value!

    The hostel was fantastic and perhaps the best I've stayed at during my Balkan trip thus far. Great location to explore Plitvice with good supermarkets nearby, clean and well-functioned facilities, and very nice vibes. I got to know some very nice friends here, and it was definitely partially owed to the atmosphere of the hostel. Highly recommend.

    One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at! Spacious rooms and drawers under the bunk that can fit even the biggest backpacks. Very clean and lovely interior. Incredibly friendly and helpful manager (Thank you, Luca!), location seems a bit "in the middle of nowhere", but they organize shuttle to park, and there are some restaurants/bars/supermarkets in walking distance. Would 10/10 recommend! 🤩

    One of the most cleanest and accommodating hostels. The receptionist met me at the door and walked me through everything I needed to know in great detail. The kitchen is beautiful, one of the only I actually wanted to cook food in. They have a shuttle to and from the Plitvice Lakes making it even more desirable to stay at this hostel. Would absolutely stay again
