Welcome to our hostel

Our hostel is located in the northern part of Kranj, a beautiful town in the Gorenjska region. The historic centre can be reached on foot and many other attractions are a short drive away. You can reach the high mountains, as well as Bled and Bohinj in an hour, and the motorway will take you to the coast in less than two.

The hostel operates as a student residence, but during the summer break we are happy to welcome backpackers and other guests. We offer simple but clean and comfortable rooms that are furnished with three or two beds, linen and towels are included in price. Bathrooms are shared. There is a common room with computers and TV, self-catering guests have access to a common kitchen. Upon previous arrangement, we provide meals for the groups of 15 people or more. There are plenty of free parking spots next to the hostel.

There are many possibilities to spend quality time outdoors just outside of town, and you can visit different local attractions and events.

The porter on this occasion spoke no English so this was a bit of a challenge when checking in.

Thank you for your comment which tells us we have to improve our service on human resourse. Since we are a student dorm, working as a hostel during summer holidays, we try to organize work the best we can, and all our other receptionists do speak English; the porter whom you met works his last months before his retirement and he normally works only during school year, rarely with the guests. For the future, we will assure the receptionist who speaks foreign languages - as expected in hostels! - and we hope to welcome you again!

This is one of the worse hostelling experiences we ever had. There was no information at all about anything (not even about the hostel actually), people didn't really seem to care about the guests, the room wasn't properly cleaned (we found a dirty sock in the bed) and it was far from the historical centre. There is a guests kitchen, but with no equipment (one pan and nothing else) and we don't know if breakfast was included because no information was provided.

Dear guest(s), I really regret the bad impression you got about our hostel and I apologize for things that were up to us. Room not cleaned enough is unacceptable and I will surely take all the measures that this doesn't happen again. Our staff are not profesional turist workers but they are generally said to be kind and helpful. I don't know the exact reason why you didn't find them this way, but I suppose you came just in the middle of accommodating a very demanding group of guests who really had a great number of special needs, not been mentioned before. My colleague worked hard to please them and she may not have had enough time to accept and accomodate you properly. Had you asked her what you wanted to know, she (or another employee in the evening) would have surely given you all the information you needed. Breakfasts are not included in price (information on the web site) and our small kitchen was empty because the dishes and cuttlery were being washed in the dish-washer and brought to the kitchen the following day. I am sorry for that, we will assure immediate return after washing in future. Although we are really embarassed about your comment, we still thank you for it - it will help us be more careful and provide better service in future. You are warmly welcome to visit us again and I'm sure you'll get better impression about us and our hostel the next time. Best wishes, Judita Nahtigal
