Kranj, Kranj, Kranj, home of the Cukrarna!
The Hostel Cukrarna is a warm and cosy hostel situated in the most beautiful part of Kranj, the old medieval town centre.
Down a small side street just off the main square, you'll find the red painted Cukrarna that has been welcoming visitors since April 2011.
What's the gist on the Cukrarna?
Glad you asked! Formerly a bar, the Cukrarna has been beautifully transformed into a hostel that begins with a very nice ground floor.
Here there is a communal kitchen with a diner and a comfortable and very trendy looking saloon.
The best of all, especially in the warmer months, is the terrace. On the terrace one can easily forget that they are in the 4th biggest city of Slovenia.
Its views open up to the River Kokra gorge below, (the green oasis of Kranj) and onwards towards the Alps.
And the lowdown on Kranj?
Kranj is not on the list of the major tourist stops in Slovenia but Peter, the manager, is having none of it. He is one of the most enthusiastic and colourful people you will meet and is eagerly welcoming travellers and converting them into true believers.
He can tell you everything about Kranj and the region and it can be a real eye opener believe us! There are lots of interesting sites within the city and even more activities around it. The views from Smarjetna Gora are stunning. Active travellers will also find the region great for cycling, hiking, rafting, paragliding and more!
Peter speaks English well and he told me that he also likes the company of tourists on his hikes or cycling tours!
Is this a typical hostel?
It is and it isn’t. Sure, you can find backpackers and a younger crowd, but you will also be surprised to find older couples, cycling groups and all sorts of other interesting characters.
They are drawn to this place by forces unknown which always makes the Cukrarna a great place to visit.
The Hostel has 2 double rooms and 3 twin-bedrooms that sleep 4,6 and 8 respectively.
The 4 bed room is a female only room. The best room is the double room on the top with even nicer views and comfortable bed. It is a good romantic treat, guaranteed!
If you prefer staying in for the evening you won't be bored, it is quite possible that you will find yourself in the middle of swing lessons or a blues concert! cool!
See you there!
Peter awaits your booking and he guarantees you will
have a few stories to tell your friends when you leave the Cukrarna!
