After staying 2 nights at the Val Hostel in room 301, we are now fighting with BED BUGs or FLEAs. We are quite confident that we got them here in Piran. Given this, I cannot give a good rating. Besides that major annoyance, everything was OK: Great location, friendly owners. Perhaps we were just the unlucky exception to an otherwise... More

We had a great experience here. Very friendly staff, nice breakfast and location for the money we paid. It's 2 star and it exceeded our expectations. Even managed to do some laundry. Some great restaurants around, diving centre 50m away. Would recommend.

If you are looking for a nice hotel in the centre of Piran and shared bathroom is not a problem, choose Val Hotel (hostel). Great location in the Old Town, few meters from the sea shore, and very helpful staff. Two things you need to know: no air conditioning in the rooms - if you want to cool a bit,... More

I had a single room with shared bathroom. I spent here one night only, for holidays. The room was tiny but clean and had all what was needed. The bed could have been more comfortable. The toilets and shower were small but clean enough and functional. The lounge and breakfast room on the ground floor is cosy. Breakfast was good.... More

The location is great, it is located in the heart of Piran, so everything is close. The beach and the main promenade are few steps away. The owners are nice and welcoming. If you are looking for a low budget accommodation, we really recommend it.

We had bites in the first night und the room smelled really bad. Back at home we are sure now: We had bed bugs in our room. But as I read from the other reviews, the hostel is full of it! The owner knows the problem and let us stayed there despite - it's a insolence!

The central location is super, the beach and the center of old town are just a short walk. Leave the car behind and enjoy Piran as it should be seen, by walking. Val Hostel offers a GREAT Breakfast of fresh fruit, meat, cheeses, breads, jams, coffee, juice. I've recently traveled to 20 countries and found Vals to be a super... More

Located right in the heart of Piran, Hostel Val is a few steps from the sea. Rooms are clean and the complimentary breakfast is an added perk, but the WiFi was very spotty and their scheme for free parking was so complicated that we just paid for it instead of faffing around with taking their one parking pass to the...

Good breakfast, quiet during off-season. The hostel is in a romantic old building, very close to the beach. If there are empty rooms - you can get if before check-in time. In the reception you can find a lot of information.

The only night on our vacation we winged it. Rolled into town without a reservation. Plain and simple--nothing fancy about this place but it worked well for a nights rest. Breakfast was good with Elvis playing in the background. The town is small and there are several restaurants and bars nearby. Try to make sure to read up on parking... More
