Hostel Idrija is run almost exclusively by local young people who are not older than 35 years. For our team, which consists of high school and college students, the Idrija Hostel is one of their first contact with the hospitality industry. Therefore, our mission is not only to provide a great service to our guests but to offer our employees a safe and dynamic environment where they can learn first-hand about working in the hospitality industry. They are allowed to make mistakes, learn and grow from them.
Do not worry, this does not mean that your stay at Hostel Idrija will be any less enjoyable, as we strive to provide an excellent experience for all of our guests. However, since we have less working experience, there is a higher chance that we will not be one hundred percent perfect. We would be happy if you tell our staff what we can improve to meet your needs, and we promise that we will improve with each of your stays. Thank you for supporting our cause.
