We have called before the arrival time and arranged the key to the room be available to us in case the reception is not open (note it is not open between 1 pm - 4 pm) We were traveling with our two small children and as a courtesy, they upgraded our room to a bigger room with our own bathroom (very nice). The location is beautiful, a bit far from the beach (7-10 km drive). Be sure to experience the church bell sound at 9 pm (beutiful). The hostel is designed and kept in a great condition, clean, quiet (only can hear neighbors from accross the street). The breakfast is 5 EU, but we have gotten breakfast at Izola Spar, for half of this price. The road is windy going up to the hostel, at time could be scary, as people drive pretty fast there (be careful).

Splendida struttura, reception adorabile siamo arrivati dopo l orario del check in e ci ha fatto trovare le chiavi della camera. Zona molto tranquilla. Unica pecca il numero di telefono non è quello riportato su Venere. Pro la colazione solo 5€ con briohes, fette biscottate, marmellata, succhi di frutta! Super consigliato

ottima sistemazione e prezzo. 2 consigli: tendine oscuranti alle finestre (alle 6 eravamo già svegli) e migliorare la colazione con almeno qualche prodotto fresco e meno confezionato. per il resto tutto ok!

By car just about 10 minutes away from the Slovenian beach. The advantages of this hotel are the peacefully silent circumstation, because of its location in a village on a mountain, fresh air, the excellent staff-service and additionally it is a clean hotel. The only disadvantage is the Roman Catholic Church, which is located about 100m from our hotel. We stayed there on Saturday evening. On Sunday in the morning at 6 or 7 a.m. the noisy bells from that church heavily disturbed us. Anyway if I summarize everything I will gladly come again to this hotel, but I will not stay there on Saturday evening :-).

Il posto è nuovo e molto ben tenuto. La posizione in collina, in un borgo bello, molto caratteristico, vicino a un'ottima trattoria. Non troppo scomodo per raggiungere tutte le spiagge circostanti, da Isola a Portorose e Pirano e Strugnano. Se si cercano tranquillità e comfort a poco prezzo, è imbattibile.

Topp restaurert sted litt oppe I fjellet. Her fikk vi et eget rom med køyer til 4 og et eget bad. Alt var nytt og det var air condition på rommet. Frokosten var det beste vi har fått noen sted, med alt man kan tenke seg..Herberget ligger veldig beleilig til når man skal fra Italia til Kroatia eller omvendt. Flott sted til en flott pris og med veldig hyggelig betjening. Husk at resepsjonen stenger (jeg tror det var kl 20.00) så hvis dere har bestilt rom og ikke rekker før dette, ring og de ordner opp, slik vi gjorde.

"A bit out of hand but realy nice"
01/16/15 Mojca G Slovenia
We had a seminar here in march and the location was great,. Rooms were nice and cosy, nothing special, but all you need. Sheets and towels were clean and the bathroom was nice. Work room had huge windows and it was quite pleasant. But the nature here is just beautiful. Wish we had more time to enjoy it.

"BIG PROBLEMS --- NO WAY TO CONTACT THEM"
08/26/14 PWE-MRS Marseille, France
We had a reservation with this hotel for a one-night stay to our travel to Croatia. Arrived at the next city, IZOLA, at around 18h with my wife and two children we took the road to the hotel (which is located outside the city). The problem was that this road was totally jammed since it leads to the border or Croatia. In consequence it took us more than two hours to reach the hotel ... (I suppose this is a common situation that the road is jammed). We tried to call the hotel to inform them about our late arrival but although we tried more than five times no one replied on the phone. And it happened what I feared the most, the hotel simply closed the reception (no one opended when ringing even on the "private" bell) and I was sitting with my family on the street in the night after ten hours of drive. I cannot judge on the quality of the hotel and service the only thing I can state is that it is unacceptable not answering on the phone when you know that a family with small children is arriving from far and when you know that the road to the hotel is blocked (seems most of the time). Even the next day we tried to call them to clarify this situation but we were unable to reach the hotel since then by phone or e-mail. This was a very bad experience for me and my family and a very bad start to our vacation in the region. I cannot recommend this establishment at all. In the case of problems they are unreachable.

"Would stay again!"
09/05/12 paddyb-travel
The hostel is high up on the hill and finding it was not a problem – there are several roads that leads to it and some could be more challenging than the others. We opted for the room with own bathroom and it was of good size, with high ceiling and it’s quiet. Its location makes it a good base to go to the coast towns (or even a day trip to cross the board to Italy or Croatia!). The place was well decorated, staff are all very friendly and speak good English. The WiFi is okay – may not get reception in every corner but enough to do basic search and review. Breakfast not included but for 4 Euro, you are served with a really nice self-served full breakfast! I enjoyed my stay there.

"This was great!"
08/17/12 niki-77 Malmo, Sweden
Beautiful view and calm surroundings. Very nice breakfast to eat inside or out in the patio. The staff was nice and helpful, they speak english, italian and understand serbian/croatian. When you come by car it is a perfect base to visit all interesting things you can find in Slovenia. Close to the coast, to both Postojna and Rakov caves and Lipica fx. We were there for 4 nights with 3 children and had a room with our own bathroom which was perfect. Free wi-fi not great everywhere but there were places to sit at the good spots! I can recommend this place to anyone as a great budget-stay! Only thing that was not perfect was that it was a little hard to find the first time! If you drive by Izola you find it easier.

"Clean, simple hostel in lovely little village above the sea"
08/01/12 Italialuv Rome, Italy
The Stara Sola Korte hostel sits high up on the cliffs above the Adriatic Sea. It is located in the tiny village of Korte near the coastal towns of Portoroz, Isola, Koper and Piran. The rooms are clean and equipped with bedding, towels, soap and air conditioning. Some rooms have an attached bath with shower while others share a hall bath with shower. The common areas are well decorated and clean. There is wireless internet available in some areas of the hotel, although it does not reach all rooms. The food was average with adequate breakfast choices.

"Perfect for a family travelling by car"
07/01/11 Kaisakoo Helsinki, Finland
This hostel is a real gem. Location in a small village on the hill just a short drive away from beaches of Portoroz, Piran and Izola is perfect if you are travelling by car. Hostel is nicely renovated and well-kept. We rented an apartment with two bedrooms and it was nicely furnished and clean. There was a small kitchenette, a bath tub and a tv in the room. A beautiful breakfast was served with a separate price. We enjoyded the atmosphere of the village, the beautiful landscape and even the church bells waking us up every morning. Took day trips to cities and beaches close by. Hotel-level living with a hostel price! I recommend!

"Each our wish was fulfilled - new management is trying hard to win loyal customers"
06/18/11 MariettaN Ljubljana, Slovenia
We stayed at the hostel in early June with a group of 22 international participants, on a peergroup workshop on dialogue. As the local organiser, I was surprised to find the hostel in a much better shape than it was in winter (when I booked the place). As it turned out the hostel has a new management team (since April), highly dedicated, friendly and professional: the newly-acquired 'female touch' to the place is evident everywhere - from bright colours in the dining room to the many flowers and plants in and around the buildings (the place now has sort of a Tuscany-meets-Greece-meets Adriatic touch - warm and welcoming. Breakfast consists of yoghurt, fruits, (soy) milk, cereals, cheese, salami, jams, honey ... the choice reminds one of a three-star hotel (rather than a hostel). At lunch and dinner, we had a choice of quality vegetarian or meat-based meals; simple but local, and delicious. As a group, we had quite a few requests (from meal timings to finding special places for our sessions in the surrounding area) - and the kind Ms Mateja has answered them all. At the end, we were (as a group) genuinely asked if there is anything we would suggest as improvements for the future. Our answer: plumbing in one of communal bathrooms does not work. And there could be sweeps/tools to clean up the bathroom after individual use. That's all. Most rooms sleep 4 persons (bunk beds). The hostel is brightly coloured, the rooms are nicely furnished. The real asset however is the new management team, who in our case really met our requests. The hostel is ideal for groups who need a quiet place for work, as it has two workshop rooms, plenty of outside space, and some interesting sights in the neighbourhood (like visiting the seaside town of Piran, which the hostel can organise).

"What a wonderfil location"
11/08/10 Jacks78 Oxford
We stayed here for one night at the end of a week touring Slovenia. The roads up the the village can be a bit hairy but its well worth it. Its perched on a hill overlooking the istrian Mountains, so peacful and picturesque. The rooms are very clean and comfortable but to make the most of it, sitting out on the courtyard witth a glass of wine watching the sun set was sublime. Its a real breath of fresh air to stay in a hostel with such high standards, they also arrange bike hire and there are plenty of wonderful walks to be had. there are two very nice restauraunts in the village also. It is a perfect spot to escape away from everything, i would definatly stay again.

"Plus jamais"
05/12/15 maggi_sia Toulouse, France
En arrivant la porte de l'hostel était fermée. On a eu de la chance car il ya des gens qui habitent dans le même bâtiment qui ont appelé le propriétaire. Celui ci nous a proposé la chambre la plus cher sachant qu'on voudrait un dortoir. Finalement, la seule possibilité été de prendre une chambre double alors qu'on été les seuls clients.. Au départ la chambre nous a paru correcte. Par contre le matin on étaient envahi par les fourmis. Elles étaient partout ! Dans nos sacs, vêtements, lits, par terre.Il y en avait aussi un peu dans la salle de bain qui sentait d'ailleurs mauvais. A éviter.

"Buon rapporto qualità prezzo e location"

Molto favorevole rapporto qualità/prezzo, location incantevole ma un po' fuori mano rispetto al mare e alle vie di comunicazione principali; poche stanze con bagno riservato ma pulizia indiscutibile. Negativa ristorazione in zona.
