Hostel Pekarna


About hostel

Hostel Pekarna is located on the right bank of the Drava River, at the edge of Magdalen Park and close to the city centre. The Pekarna Hostel is part of the Pekarna Cultural Centre, a complex of buildings built by the Austro-Hungarian army for the purpose of baking bread for the barracks on the outskirts of the city at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries.

This modern hostel offers accommodation in different room types. Guests in shared rooms can use a communal kitchen where they can prepare their own meals. Directly next to the kitchen is a large dining room with a computer corner and free internet access, and a common room equipped with a TV, mini library and board games.

The studio apartments and suites are set up as a residence centre and have their own kitchenette. Some studios have a private terrace in addition to a kitchen and bathroom.

In addition to the accommodation, there are two seminar rooms for rent, which can be used for lectures, cultural and youth activities, and conference tourism, using various AV technologies. In all the rooms, a hearing inductive loop is installed for hearing aid users (hard of hearing people), allowing them to listen comfortably and without interruption. 

The Pekarna Hostel is located on the second and third floors of the administrative building of the Maribor Youth Cultural Centre (MKC Maribor). The building was completely renovated between 2010 and 2011, and the Pekarna Hostel officially opened its doors on 21 September 2011. The investment in the youth tourism infrastructure was part-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund and the Ministry of Education and Sport, under the Operational Programme Strengthening Regional Development Potentials 2007-2013.
