Around the hostel
Join the HI Community
At HI, we want everybody to be able to enjoy the real hostelling experience: more than a place to stay, this is about opening minds, meeting new people, cultural immersion and getting travellers involved in our global activities. We love travelling as much as you do, so we have high hostel standards wherever we expand on the planet, but more than where you rest your head, this is about taking something unforgettable away with you – wherever you come from, or are going next.

Beauty of Portorož and Piran
Blue, white and green are the colors that would cross your mind, when you would think about Portorož and Piran. Blue is the color of the sea, which embraces our peninsula, part of the Slovenian Istria, chilling us in summer and warming us in winter. White is the color of the salt, which comes from the sea, and has brought wealth and growth to the town of Piran centuries ago. And green is the color of the Mediterranean vegetation that boasts various pine trees, olive groves, vines and aromatic spices, which complement the region with gorgeous fragrances and exquisite flavors.
In the embrace of the Lipizzaner
The easiest way to reach Lipica is by motorway Ljubljana – Trst (Trieste) at the exit “Sežana – vzhod” and then just follow the signs for the remaining 5 kilometers. The stud farm at Lipica is the original stud farm where the bread of Lipizzaner began and it’s among the oldest cultivated horse breeds in the world. With a tradition of almost four and a half centuries it is among the oldest stud farms in the world as well and one of the most beautiful cultural-historical heritage sights of Slovenia, offering a home to 350 white horses.
