Rijeka Hostel
Quality confirmed by the HI-Quality Certificate

The Rijeka Hostel, located near the centre of the town in an old but completely refurbished 19th-century villa, has gained another recognition of its quality – the HI Quality Certificate, which was awarded to the hostel in April by the director of the Hostelling International federation.

After the recent visit of the chief auditor of the Hostelling International Federation, the Rijeka Hostel has gained another recognition – the HI Quality certificate for quality insurance management system.
The certificate refers to the specialised work and quality assurance systems according to the relevant ISO standards. The owner of the certificate is the Hostelling International organisation, whose chief auditor conducted complete audit of the Rijeka Hostel in April. The audit included a detailed review and positive evaluation of all key processes in hostel management, reception, and the cleaning and maintenance of the kitchen and other hostel premises.
This certificate confirms that the services offered are of high quality and in accordance with the demanding Hostelling International standards. This will undoubtedly increase the satisfaction of the visitors, who have always given a good review of this property.
The Rijeka Hostel was opened in 2006 and has ever since recorded an increased interest among young visitors. This property is now on the European hostel network map. The hostel is open throughout the year and is almost always full. Outside the main season, the hostel provides accommodation for school groups, and during the season there is always a great demand for accommodation. No wonder, because this is the only hostel in Rijeka. It is located in a completely refurbished 19th-century villa, which provides charming, modern accommodation for young people. The property is located only hundred metres from the sea and only 15 minutes of easy walking from the town centre.
The hostel has ca. 60 beds in multi-bed rooms on the first two floors, and three double rooms in the penthouse. The ground floor hosts the reception, kitchen and dining room, internet corner, and the large lounge with coffee, snack and drink machines. The property also has a park with children's playground, and in the immediate vicinity are beaches, a well-tended park, tennis courts, a handball court, and a diving centre.
