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 your guide, if you are looking for the total local experience.

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 (35kn return ticket and 20kn oneway). The shuttle leaves at 8:00 in the morning from the hostel and comes back at 16:00 from the national park. 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.

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 (this free hike starts right outside the hostel and takes you up 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 rapids and waterfall jumping), 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. Please e-mail us if you cannot arrive before 10pm.

Latest Review

" One of the best backpackers I’ve been in since my backpacking holiday started. The location is 15mins from Plitvice Lakes and by bus, my mistake was to book from Zagreb to the Plitvice Lakes (instead should’ve been Korenica) but otherwise the cleanliness, relaxed atmosphere and people make up for the distance away from the lakes. FYI- There’s dedicated shuttle to and from the hostel to the lakes anyway so isn’t an issue. "
