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

    If you’re going to the Plitvice Lakes you must stay at this hostel! Massive rooms with amazing wifi. Super clean (everyone leaves shoes inside the front door). Tons of bathrooms and massive lockers for storage. Great common areas too, I wish I had more time to hang out there and get to know everyone. Korenica is a small town but beautifully located amongst mountains. In addition to the Plitvice Lakes of course, I recommend the sunset hike where you can get some incredible views of the valley.

    The big plus was definetely the atmosphere in the hostel. It’s a great place to meet people! We stayed there to visit the Plitvice Lakes. The staff is super friendly and gives great recommendations, also for activities apart from the lakes. We highly recommend this hostel! One of the best of its kind!

    Its by far one of the best, if not the best hostel I've stayed at. Lucas (who is in charge of running the place) is extremely kind and attentive. Although the place is a bit far away from the Plitvice Lakes, this is not a problem at all as the hostel has a daily shuttle running back and forth. Something else worth mentioning was that at Falling Lakes Hostel they took Covid restrictions seriously and therefore they were running the place at 50% capacity. Everything came to be just perfect.

    Very clean well organised hostel. spacious dorms. Wasn’t very busy - most people seem to stay one night to see the lakes and then leave. There’s other things to do in Lika but probably a good idea to organise in advance - I wanted to go kayaking but it was fully booked. Korenica is a bit of a one horse town but I liked it.

    Great location close to the national park. Also very close to the hike that goes up to the former military base. Close as well to the sunset hike that is mentioned. Information given out at the hostel. Very clean and nice amenities.

    This hostel was so great! The staff went out of their way to make sure our stay went smoothly and were extremely helpful. The facilities were fabulous, with an adorable common room stocked with games and a super nice and spacious kitchen. Overall there was a very homey vibe and cozy sense of community. 100% recommend!

    Friendly staff, super clean. Good facilities, the shower could use some water pressure though. Parking right in front of the hostel. Atmosphere wasn't great, hard to connect with others but this also depends on the other guests who are in the hostel at the time. I have to say the hostel wasn't really well occupied as it wasn't peak season. The village itself is rather quite, few restaurants and two supermarkets. Nice point to start your plitvice lake visit
