Lounge Hostel Carnevale
Rijeka's new hostel

Younger visitors to Rijeka, whose number is increasing every year, can now stay in the new Lounge Hostel Carnevale, open since last September and located on Rijeka's popular promenade, putting some of the town's best amenities within easy reach.


The new Lounge Hostel Carnevale was opened in mid-September in the centre of the city of Rijeka, in the pedestrian zone of the popular Korzo promenade. The hostel is primarily aimed at young tourists, whose number in Rijeka is increasing every year, but is also open to other visitors, especially during the carnival, when Rijeka is particularly popular destination.
The new hostel, whose name indicates the carnival image of Rijeka, has a capacity of 30 beds in six double rooms, two quad rooms, and two dormitories with six and eight beds each. The property also includes five well-equipped bathrooms with all necessary equipment and accessories such as towels and hair dryers.
With regard to the fact that the hostel is located in an old building which is, like other properties along the Korzo promenade, of great historical, architectural and urban importance for the town, there is no kitchen and dining room due to the limited space. However, the hostel includes a large living room suitable for get-togethers and relaxation, with one very special feature: lounge & chillout music by the renowned local DJ Šošo is played in all common rooms.
The fact that the Lounge Hostel Carnevale is located in the very centre of the town has many advantages for its visitors, because many of the town's cultural and historical sights, as well as bars and restaurants, are within easy reach. In addition, during the carnival, the hostel is in the very centre of the action.
