I absolutely loved staying in this Hostel. Mika (excuse the spelling) was so helpful in organising day trips or helping out with any travel advice. The Hostel itself felt like I was as a friends beach house. So relaxed and welcoming a nice holiday especially when you have been backpacking for a while! I would definitely come back and wouldn't stay anywhere else.
The dudes who run this place are AWESOME! Cheers Clement, Michael and Jaka! They run great tours, they are all very knowledgable about the area and are generally great fun! The hostel is in a great spot (2 mins from the bus stop), it has a good kitchen, nice toilets and showers and great common areas. I wanted to stay longer! 3 nights wasn't enough!
This is the best hostel of our trip. The staff couldn't do enough for us. The hostel has a great atmosphere, the day trips ran by the hostel are perfect and the facilities are second to none. We will recommend this hostel to everyone travelling to Bled. We couldn't have picked a better spot to end our trip in.
The hostel itself is a brilliant example of a basic hostel with some things better than average. The 4 bed dorm is very spacious and I would recommend this above the larger dorms if you have room in the budget. The showers are very good with plenty of room to get ready/changed. Could do with an extra toilet as there was often a queue and they regularly ran out of toilet roll even though I saw them being checked/replenished frequently. Unfortunately, other guests didn't clean up properly
One of the best hostels I have stayed at (& I have stayed in MANY!). Right from the beginning you feel welcomed into the "family" atmosphere as the staff give you a private tour of the hostel & explain the many sites in the area. This welcoming attitude washes off on all the guests & the common room is the friendliest place where instant friends are constantly made. Felt like a home away from home. The hostel is kept super clean, excellent kitchen facilities & the environment feels safe.

The kitchen was mostly well equipped but could have done with an oven. Small room which was fine but seemed wrong to call it "deluxe" when it was no different to the others. Key cards for the external doors and for the rooms would have improved security but seemed like a safe area.
Best hostel and staff from my 3 months backpacking trip through Europe! Such a nice and fun experience, lake Bled is amazing and Castle Hostel and team were able to make it even more special! Highly recommend it!! 👏👏👏 Definitely coming back one day!
Extremely helpful staff and lovely atmosphere. The bathrooms were clean and the kitchen was practical and had of all the necessary facilities. The hostel was one of the best I've ever stayed in.. A very warm and inviting place to relax and learn about beautiful Bled!!
Simply loved this hostel! The facilities are really good, and the atmosphere is great to meet new people. The staff is also great! Super recommend it.
Awesome hostel. Changed my life. Go canyoning!
Definitely need better wifi coverage and more toilet facilities.
Castle Hostel is incredibly fun and welcoming! The staff provided great local tips for hikes and food outside of the main tourist attractions. Double thumbs up.
Great hostel which is only a 5 min walk to the lake. The kitchen area was great for cooking and they actually provided some free food which was a good surprise. A 6 bed room was slightly cramped with everyones luggage etc, and the 10pm curfew on the social area was a bit annoying. Otherwise a really good place to stay in Bled.
Can't fault this place. Great staff, great location and great vibe. Loved the kitchen as well! Stay here if you can!
Great location, common areas, lots of showers, bar underneath hostel. Friendly staff that organise activities
Had a great stay here- the staff were extremely helpful, especially the two English lads.
Really great hostel,great location, ideally suited for younger travellers. stayed in 6 bed room which was a lot smaller than it look on the website! Apart from that, good kitchen facilities and possibility of having laundry done

Great staff, very helpful and eager to make recommendations about what to do in the area, where to eat, etc. Very welcoming! Otherwise, small hostel atmosphere.
In all of our travels in Southeastern Europe we haven#t come across such attentive staff in a bigger, popular hostel (in small hostels and guesthouses we still got plenty of it, luckily). These people are extremely friendly and always asking if you need anything and helping you to find information. The bike rental was good value. We got upgraded to an apartment nearby, due to a glitch in the system which had double booked a room and the annex apartment was absolutely great.
