Opening again after COVID-19

Dear guests,

From 16th of March 2020 our hostel is being closed due to the goverment measures against Covid-19.

The good news is that from the end of April Slovenia has started slowly mitigate the restrictive measures.

  • For now it is allowed to cross municipal boundaries.. It means that travelling through the whole country is allowed.
  • Museums and outdoor terraces of restaraunts have been opened.
  • Navigation on the Soca and Koritnica rivers is allowed again.
  • From 11 of May public transport between cities starts working again.
  • And it is expected that from 12.05.2020 it will be allowed to be opened for small accommodations (up to 30 rooms), camps, restaurants.
    So  we hope that from 12.05.2020 Hostel Kobarid will be able to open its doors for guests.
    Lets keep fingers crossed :).

Hostelworld Award 2020

Great quality Score of 9.9 as a Top performer was recieved by our hostel at website Hostelworld. 
Thank you very much for wonderful feedbacks! We are glad we are doing a great job!

Here are some of reviews.

Hands down the best, most impressive hostel I’ve ever enjoyed! I would return to Kobarid, even travel out of my way to return to Kobarid, just for this hostel. The hosts/owners are amazing, friendly, and spirited. They seem truly happy to host people in their place and share their experiences in the Julian Alps with visitors. We visited in mid December, so the town was sleepy and outdoor sports weren’t really happening, but in the right season, the host can take you paragliding. Sport paradise!
