Overall an outstanding hostel setting... Recommend for backpacker
Very few rooms but hostel is cool and staff is extremely friendly!
One of the best hostles I've ever stayed in. Staff are very helpful and friendly. They had great advice and information on all of the activities available. There was a member of staff there at all times. In a very central location. Would recommend this hostle for everyone.
Many thanks to all the staff who made a great place wonderful, all the advice for day trips and places to eat was immense. The Facilities were great especially the Bbq, it made the nights on the terracewatching the sun set really special. Thanks a bunch
Staff were so helpful, they made so many amazing recommendations and made sure we had the best time possible! I only wish I could have stayed longer!

Bathrooms and toilets had a strange lingering smell which meant it didn't feel very clean. No house rules in the evenings so other guests were incredibly loud all through the night and in the mornings the place would be a state. Great location however. Maybe better for young backpackers who want to meet new people.
Had a great stay at this hostel, helpful and friendly staff, easy walking instance to all of the activities on the lake and services in town as well as other activities (gorge walks/canyoning) organised by the hostel, BBQ on the balcony was also very useful! Will definitely be coming back :)

This is just a brilliant hostel!! Everything you want in a hostel is at Castle Hostel!! Location, Staff, Day Trips, Cleanliness, and much much more!! Thanks Castle Hostel!!
Bit pricey but has a nice terrace balcony area. toilets and showers are kept clean while staff are helpful. good kitchen facilities but the rooms are fairly cramped. Be warned the walls are thin and you can hear all the noise happening in the corridors.
Great few days in Bled region at this hostel. Great staff and facilities. Comfortable mattresses, lockers big enough for backpacks, nice common area and kitchen. Would stay again!
The hostel was a close walk to castle and cathedral. There was also a supermarket very close. Conditions were a bit cramped but it sufficed for two nights. Pretty clean and a nice terrace (although the terrace closes at 22:00 so don't plan on enjoying beers out there!). Decent bar downstairs open later. There is a free tour each day but it never went because of rain. Rent bikes and do the tour yourself. Staff was friendly.

The place to stay in Bled, great staff and good facilities. Offers a wide range of activities and is located close to the bus stop.
I'm not entirely sure what all the fuss is about this hostel. It's just a very basic hostel. My room was tiny and packed six people in like sardines. There were no lockers either.
Fantastic hostel to stay. Brilliant location, sparkly clean.
Miha, Jaimee, Aggie and the other staff were amazing.even though I got in late and had to leave next day, Miha still showed me the entire hostel and told me things to do.I just ended up staying for longer because Bled is amazing and the hostel was a lot fun.the terrace is really cool with amazing views and place to meet other people and relax.I wish I could have stayed for longer but will definitely be back, hopefully very soon.
Fantastic hostel in Bled. The staff was amazing and helpful, facilities are modern, nice and clean. Nice place to make friends and meet other backpackers. There's lots of activities to do. It was a pity that i only stayed one night but i'm sure i will be back in the future! :)
Cool place to stay with large common area for socialising which people tend to do. The 6 bed dorm we stayed in was pretty small with nowhere really to put your bag so you do feel on top of the other guests. Also has lovely outside terrace with nice views so you can chill out and enjoy the sunshine. The bar downstairs on the street is a cool place to hang out and meet new friends. Staff very helpful and do a daily trip to the gorge and the viewpoint all for free. Whole place very clean and modern
amazing staff, location and overall experience here! Quite lively hostel excellent for backpackers to meet people! Would definitely return !
love this hostel and Bled, staff helpful and approachable, very clean hostel and comfy beds, love the way they put your name on the bed to make sure no one takes your bed , thanks, I will be back in this hostel, THANKS FOR A GREAT TIME IN BLED. The kitchen was always clean and well equipped, plenty hot water. you are very secure in this hostel, especially with the big lockers - thanks - Bernice from Northern Ireland
So you're thinking you want to book this hostel for one or two nights. Add another couple nights onto it. This place is amazing, loads of activities in this beautiful location (rafting and canyoning are a must!). Staff at the hostel are super friendly and will sort you out with what to see. Rooms are nice and beds comfortable. The common room feels like your living room.
