There aren't enough toilets and showers for all hostel guests and unfortunately toilet and shower are together in one room. This isn't a big problem usually, but it is when somebody is showering and you have to pee very hard :D
Nice hostel, slept well even in a dorm of 10 people. Really helpful staff who gave us lots of ideas for things to do.
Both owners and staff went out of their way to make our stay fantastic, from volunteering information about everything we needed, to special accommodations for a friend who needed them, and just generally making us feel welcomed...as guests in a place where they really care about your welfare, and fun! Oh, and the coffee in the adjoining bar is fantastic! Visit the bar, and do Spila and others a favor by observing quiet hours after 10 pm outside, or continue the party inside, as we did!
There is a pub next door to this hostel that parties until 4am. Not a great place to get any sleep

Nice enough hostel, very small but that makes it easy to meet fellow travellers. Wifi is not the greatest/strongest. Great location, very close to the lake and castle. No lockers in the room I was in but you could leave valuables with reception and had a lock for the room so wasn't a major issue. Staff were friendly and helpful with any questions I had.
Great place to stay in bled. Clean, comfortable rooms, laundry and cooking facilities, really helpful staff and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The best thing about this hostel is their weekly barbecue which is extremely cheap and really delicious! There's also a bar right around the corner so the atmosphere is great at night. And only a 5 minute walk to the lake!
The hostel is in probably the best location of all the hostels in Bled as its a 5 minute walk from the lake itself as well as great and friendly staff which will help you with pretty much anything you need. The only thing i'd say is that the kitchen closes at 12am so if you're looking to go out you'll have to pre drink pretty early because after that there is no where else you can drink, except the pub which is part jointed with the hostel and others. (cant drink your own alcohol in there).
This Hostel is Awesome! My brother and I stayed there for 4 nights and had a blast. They had clean rooms, Great staff and a cool little Bar in the basement. Go Kopitar!

Amazing hostel, great location and very friendly and helpful staff, the guy who owns the place was lovely and made us feel very welcomed. Lake bled itself is incredible and well worth a visit. Really good accommodation and would recommend it to anyone.
Great hostel in good place. Kitchen is really nice especially, and bar downstairs really friendly and fun. However distinct lack of bathrooms and they seemed to just leave the front door open at night. Also just an observation, it seems to be frequently full of specifically irish people for some reason
Bled hostel is excellent! It is clean, secure and friendly. Justin and the other managers are extremely chilled out and happy to give you local advice on things to do. The bar has an brilliant vibe and we were treated to an awesome BBQ one night for 3 euro each. When I told Justin he could easily charge a little more given and at least make a little profit, he responded with 'haha everyone says that, but that's not why we do it'. I guess that attitude is why this hostel is as sweet as it is.
Brilliant location and a great atmosphere in the hostel. The kitchen was brilliant with plenty of room and clean, it had enough room to socialise in aswell. The supermarket is literally 30 seconds away which was very handy. Met some lovely people there and wish we could have stayed longer!
When we arrived there were no lockers for us to use even though they advertise as having such on hostelworld. When we checked in the receptionist/bartender told us that wifi probably wouldn't work in our room but would in their bar. She was right - basically no wifi in the actual hostel. When we did get it, it was very slow. Lastly, it just wasn't clean. Squashed bugs on the walls, a leftover towel and thong hanging from one of the beds and overflown bathroom floors that were never mopped.

The hostel manager was fantastic, giving us a welcome drink on arrival and a little chocolate. He also drove us to the park's entrance on both days as we did a two day entry despite only sleeping one night. The kitchen is functional and the room is very clean.
Guy on check in is FANTASTIC! Bathroom floor gets wet after showers. Kitchen modern but small if everyone hangs out in there.
The hostel was everything one could need. Its location is perfect, just up the hill from the bus station and the lake itself, and right next to the paths for the castle and the gorge. There are facilities for washing clothes and cooking food, and staying in the hostel also comes with discounts for a nearby restaurant. The staff were friendly and helpful, and any activities we wanted to do were booked through them very easily.
Kitchen is too popular among the youths as everyone tries to save as much as possible. If possible can expand the tables? That would be nice as currently there are only 6 seats for the table.
very clean and comfortable beds and no bunks which is definitely a plus. really good location in the beautiful old quarter really close to the castle and plenty of supermarkets and nice restaurants on the same street.
