Hostelling International Slovenia



Hostelling International Slovenia Hostelling International Slovenia (HI Slovenia) is the only national representative of Slovenia in the International Youth Hostel Federation (Hostelling International – HI). HI is a non-governmental and non-profit organization active in about 90 countries in the world. The organization works closely together with UNESCO (United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization), WTO (World Tourism Organization) and other important international organization – also it was proclaimed the sixth largest organization that offers overnighting. With 4 million members it is one of the largest youth organizations in the world and is the only network of youth hostels with about 4.000 objects for spending the night, 1.5 million beds and 30-40 overnight stays annually. HI has high standards for youth hostels, based on the treatment of the guests, security, cleanliness and privacy. But it is not its only role. Since it was established in 1932 it encourages young people for better intercultural understanding through informal education and peace, global friendship and environmentalism. The international organization, with a strong support of its national members, it offers interaction among youth of various nationalities and cultures, exchange of experience, getting to know their peers and after all themselves. For this the organization has international programs for youth, above all the ones with lesser chances, through which we spread the mission of Hostelling International, which remained the same since 1932: To promote the education of all young people of all nations, but especially young people of limited means, by encouraging in them a greater knowledge, love and care of the countryside and an appreciation of the cultural values of towns and cities in all parts of the world, and as ancillary thereto, to provide hostels or other accommodation in which there shall be no distinctions of race, nationality, colour, religion, sex, class or political opinions and thereby to develop a better understanding of their fellow men, both at home and abroad. HI Slovenia, with more than 40 hostels around Slovenia, ensures safe, budget friendly and quality boarding for all types of groups. This includes the educational field trips with various themes (history, art or language courses) as well as extracurricular activities for schools, students, sporting and other groups – or simply friends who want a joint active holiday. All Slovenian hostels meet the international demands, with most of them having special offers for the groups: • Private rooms for group leaders and drivers • Bus parking • Study rooms, game rooms and joint areas • Ensuring full meals and possible lunch packets • Personal that understands the needs of any group Hostels are placed as well in the urban centres as in nature, but all can be perfect base for discovering the country side. Do you want active holidays with rafting, skiing and hiking? Maybe something more relaxing as sightseeing of cultural and historical sights? Or would you just spoil yourself in the thermal and natural baths? PZS as part of Hostelling International is the organization to contact for any of these great experiences in a budget friendly way.

Local sights and attractions Adrenalin park There are adrenalin opportunities, such as high platform polygon, climbing wall, giant swing and the tower of courage. If you’re brave enough you can try your nerves at the highs of 14 metres. The giant swing is a special rope which lifts you up to the 8 meters and swing you over the crevice with a great view of the city of Maribor. The tower of courage is something, you have to handle yourself (the safety crew is on the ground), so you have to climb it and handle the height! PohorJet PohorjeJet track is installed on the ski slope from the triangular clearing to the Snow stadium. The ski lift takes you to the start and then you rush downhill through sharp curves and unpredictable depths, but you can decide upon the speed for yourself.

Bike Park Pohorje Bike Park Pohorje offers a mountain bike trail from the top at Bellevue to the foot of the mountain. On the trail you can even make jumps up to 6 meters long. The length of the trail is around 4km long and offers various paths downhill. But we suggest the first time you tackle it you do it in a company of an instructor.

Paint ball Paint ball is a tactical adrenalin sport where two teams fight to get the other teams flag. The referee and a specially designed polygon will help you reach new victories.
