You shouldn’t have issues if booking in the shoulder or winter season but as the location is beautiful year round you’ll get first pick if you book early.

Best Area to Stay in Lake Bled
Bled is a very small area so no matter you where you stay in Bled you will not be far from any of the attractions, including Lake Bled itself. In fact, accommodation shouldn’t be more than a 10-15 minute walk from the lake but if you prefer to be lakeside then just be sure to check out Google Maps and where exactly the accommodation is!
Best Budget Lake Bled Accommodation
Find the perfect place to stay in Lake Bled on a budget with these hostels in Lake Bled.
Castle Hostel 1004
This Bled hostel is where I personally stayed while visiting Bled and I have no complaints about this hostel.
The location of perfect, just a 5-minute walk from the bus station, 2-minutes from a grocery store, less than 10-minutes from Lake Bled and plenty of restaurants within walking distance too.
The hostel is medium sized with a large kitchen, plenty of places to sit and socialize and a great outdoor terrace that has awesome views of the town.
The price is right, each bed has a reading light, locker and a power socket and there were never issues with bathrooms or showers.
After Castle Hostel 1004, Bled Hostel is the next most rated (and highly) hostel. The location is also ideal, only 50 metres from the bus station and 200 metres from Lake Bled and the castle.
Everything is at your fingertips including restaurants and shops. The hostel itself has a kitchen, bar, laundry, BBQ area and more.
Garden House Bled
Garden House Bled is just so charming I had to include it as a recommendation. The hostel itself is actually four houses that are connected by a garden. Two of the houses are 4-bed dorms while the others are private rooms.
You’re free to pick food from the garden and each house is designed differently with reused materials that create a funky yet cozy vibe.
