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 25 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. We accept cash only View House Rules

    One of the best hostels I've stayed in, the rooms were huge with large lockable drawers under the bed which fit your whole case which was great. The evening quiz was a lovely way to meet people and the hike up to the top of the mountain was well worth it, despite the summit being covered in snow and the descent being slightly hair-raising! 8 hours was not a lie :) The bistro restaurant at the junction in town was lovely too and did cheap takeaway pizza.

    Me and my partner stayed in a double private room for 2 nights. We had a fantastic time at Falling Lakes, the surrounding area is beautiful with mountains of different sizes right on your door step and a very affordable and well organised shuttle bus service to the lakes 15 mins away. The bedrooms were tidy and clean, and the showers and bathrooms were exceptional. For such a fun and social hostel the only problem was the size of the kitchen/common area where sometimes a slight queue would form.
