Hostel Via Flavia is excellent value for the price. As it's located right in the centre of Koper with all the main sights in walking distance, it has the perfect location from which to base yourself, no matter what your plans are.
Hostel Via Flavia is located in the historic centre of Koper, in easy reach of everything the city has to offer. After a five-minute walk, you arrive on Tito Square, with the beautiful Venetian-style Praetorian palace, the Loggia, and the main cathedral with the bell tower right in front of you. From here, the beach of Koper is only another ten minutes on foot. Walking along the walls of the Old Town, you will also find the traditional market and the marina for sailing boats after a ten-minute stroll. The train station and the modern area of the city can be also reached in about twenty minutes. While the city is normally really quiet at night, the hostel is located right next door to a kindergarten, so those who like to sleep in and are easily disturbed by noise should probably look for another option.
Rooms and Bathrooms
All the dorms accommodate a maximum of four people. However, the bunks are convertible, which means that the upper beds can be folded to the side if only two guests are staying in the room, which gives the place a much nicer, more private atmosphere. While the rooms are rather on the small side and without much style, they offer modern furniture and en suite bathrooms. The bathrooms are simple and small, with the shower only separated from the toilet by a curtain. However, they are clean and equipped with everything you might need.
The whole ground floor is offered for the enjoyment of the guests, with the space near the reception functioning as a small kitchen and drinks area. Here, there is a hot drinks machine which can be used free of charge by hostel guests. Moreover, the few added extras include complimentary chocolate bonbons and short drinks. Next to this area, there is a small outdoors terrace where in the summer, hostel guests are welcome to do some grilling.
It might not be your place if you are looking to meet other travelers and party, as it has a more tranquil profile with only a few dorms available, but if you wish to enjoy some quiet days by the beach, Hostel Via Flavia is guaranteed to not disappoint you.
