Welcome to our hostel

Youth Hostel Pod Skalo is located in the heart of Slovenia, only a 5-minute walk from the old centre of Kamnik and 23km from Ljubljana. Family-run hostel, Pod Skalo offers a comfortable stay in the homely atmosphere of a renovated 18th century house. The interior was refurnished and combines a modern with old-style touch to complement the long history of the house.

The hostel offers a rich self-service breakfast. There is also a laundry room, terrace where our guests can relax, and common room with TV, refrigerator and tea making facilities. You can refresh yourself in an interesting old-style pub with a wide selection of beer and the best ice cream in town.

Youth Hostel Pod Skalo is an excellent starting point for hiking with many hiking trails nearby. Next to the hostel is Kamnik's sports centre with a swimming pool, tennis and beach volley courts.
