Welcome to our hostel

Hostel Pekarna is situated on the right bank of the river Drava, right next to Magdalenski park, close to the town centre.
Hostel Pekarna is part of the Cultural centre Pekarna, a building complex that used to be a bakery, built at the turn of the century by the Austro-Hungarian army for the purpose of bread supply for the nearby barracks.
Wholly renovated and modernly designed Hostel offers accommodation in seven 4-bed rooms with private bathrooms, located right across the wide corridor functioning as a space for socializing and relaxing, leading the way to the wooden terrace.
Dorm guests can use a common kitchen, where they can prepare their meals. Right next to the kitchen there is a big dining room with Internet Corner, equipped with TV and computers, free Internet access.
Guests can socialize and hang out in a comfy club room with a TV, used for organizing individual thematic meetings for pleasant evening hours.
Attic studio apartment and suites are designed as a residency center. Guests can choose between studio apartments with modern equipment, private kitchen and bathroom, or suites with private kitchen, bathroom and terrace.
We also offer DIY laundry service where you can wash and dry your clothes.
Beside accommodation, two seminar rooms can be booked for conference tourism, lectures, as well as for cultural and youth activities. They are equipped with the latest AV technology.

Best hostel I have ever stayed in and it can easily compete with much more expensive hotel rooms.

Molto funzionale e ben organizzato. Il percorso finale per arrivare alla struttura non è illuminato bene di sera.

Good Location and price, sadly more popular with professionals and families than youngsters, no place to meet new people, high comfort level for a youth hostel. Cooperation with Pekarna alternative culture centre desirable

Relativ nah zur Altstadt ca. 10 Minuten zu Fuß, eigene Parkplätze, unmittelbar bei einem alternativen Gebäudekomplex mit Party und Konzerträumen auf der Seite mit den Zimmern hört man aber nichts davon. Direkt am Bahnhof gelegen aber auch keine Lärm.
