Please make sure to read the full description before booking with us, as it contains some very useful information. Booking: For booking please visit our website. We are a brand new hostel in Plitvice Lakes! If you are looking for a backpackers haven with like-minded travelers who enjoy nature, outdoor activities and adventure travel then you've come to the right place. Being travelers ourselves we can help you make the most out of your trip to the National Park. With sustainability in mind we designed our hostel to have solar thermal water heating, LED lighting and composting of all organic waste. Our property lies nestled in a valley between Mrsinj and Pljesevica Mountain (we offer free hiking tours to Pljesevica or Mrsinj!) and is at the heart of all mountaineering, hiking, and biking trails. We offer comfy dorms with custom made bunk beds that have built-in lockers, a personal plug and a reading light. In our common room area you can hang out, read, play board games or enjoy a locally brewed beer. Some of our other services include: free wifi, free linen, towels and locks for rent, shared fully-equipped kitchen, luggage storage, outdoor patio. Here are answers to some of the most common questions we get asked by our guests. How to get to us: We are on the south border of the national park in a town called Korenica, and are a 15 min drive from entrance 2 of the falls. Korenica is the nearest town from the lakes and is the only place in the area that has full services and amenities, such as: three supermarkets, a post office, restaurants, cafes, bars, ATM, hospital, etc. all within 5 min walking distance from the hostel. Getting to the park: We offer a daily shuttle service from the hostel to the park at 9 am with a return at 5 pm for as many people as needed. By pooling people together we are able to offer cheap transport to the lakes and back (return ticket 35 kuna per person, 4.50 euros). It's also cheaper than taking the bus. Keep in mind that the location of the falls and lakes within the park is remote with miles of surrounding wilderness. So when you book your bus to get to us, make sure that you book to Korenica and not Plitvice entrance 1 or entrance 2, since you will be at the gate of the park and therefore in the middle of nowhere. Once you arrive in Korenica getting to us is pretty simple. How long do I need to see the park: to see the basics i.e. the falls of the park you need a full day, approximately eight hours. However, the park has many beautiful hiking and mountaineering trails. To take advantage of the region fully and to hike the main trails you need about four days. Falling Lakes Hostel Policies and Conditions. Check in 14:00-24:00 Check out before 11:00 Cancellation policy: 48 hours before arrival. Payment upon arrival by cash.

First of all, this hostel is in Korenica, not in Plitvice lake! Korenica is a small town next to plitvice lake. The hostel offers budget friendly-nice-shuttle cars, both round trip and one way. The dorm room is spacious, organized, tidy and clean. Bag storage are under the

Hi there! Our quiet hours begin actually at 11:30pm and yes you do have the option to go out to the local bar after that but of course are expected upon your return to be respectful of the other guests that are sleeping, aka not shouting or yelling when you get back. Staff are going to enforce the house rules for the benefit of all and not some, it's simple really.

Stayed here for a night on our way to Plitvice Lakes. Friendly staff, accommodating, and major points for board games in the lounge :) The showers could have been a little cleaner but they were far from awful, and we did shower very early in the morning before cleaning so it

thank you for staying with us and we are happy to hear that you had a great time with us. :) We are easily reachable by public bus as there's a bus stop in Korenica, just make sure to book a bus to Korenica and not Plitvice lakes entrance 1 or 2 since that's the park entrance. We hope you enjoy the rest of your trup, happy travels! :)

Hi Sammie, you can fly into Zagreb or Zadar, though the airport in Zadar is slightly closer. From the airport you'll need to take a bus to the zadar bus terminal where you will catch another bus to Korenica (where we are located). You can see our full directions on how to get to us on our website. Happy travels!

The reception hours are from 2pm to midnight. Please make sure to contact the hostel about arrivals outside of reception hours. Hope this info helps!

Hello! How can I go to your hostel on public transport?
Easily, just take a bus from Zagreb if you're coming from the north or Zadar if you're coming from the south. Make sure to get a bus that stops in Korenica, where we are located. We are a 5min walk from the bus top, see google maps. :) Kind regards, staff

"The rooms all seemed great. Clean, spacious, HUGE lockers."
"All I remember was that less beds per room meant more $. There isn't really much to complain about in the larger co-ed dorms."
"I think all the rooms of the hostel are excellent"
"Every room I saw in the hostel was fantastic. The common room is isolated and doesn't affect the rooms."
