Lonely Planet review
Bohinj's lively, well-run hostel, 1.5km west of Ribčev Laz on the road to Ukanc, is a hive of activity – and a hub for activities. There are big grounds, and 130 beds in two buildings: the 'hostel' building has rooms and dorms (maximum four beds), all with shared facilities; rooms in the annex have private bathrooms.
Note: there's no kitchen, but cheap dinners (€9) are available. Guests get discounts with PAC Sports , which is based here. It's popular with sports groups and school groups.
Our independent authors have visited Hostel pod Voglom and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Lake Bohinj.
