We had a fantastic stay! Thank you so much!
We had a wonderful stay at this hostel, so much so that we decided to stay an extra night!! Lake bled and the surrounding area is fantastic and staying in this hostel was the perfect base camp for our travels and hikes around the area. The staff were friendly, helpful and the facilities were spot on! Thanks so much for a great stay!
Staff were friendly and knowledgable about the area, great relaxed place to stay!
The staff makes the difference in this hostel. When you arrive, they welcome you, show you around and explain about activities. They help you wherever they can. They collaborate with a lot of other venues and organizations (pubs, restaurants etc) to get you the best price. The staff is the reason I'd recommend this hostel. Everything is super well organized! The hostel is clean, with a nice terrace overlooking the town of Bled. Only downside: it has to be quiet at 10pm.
Fantastic kitchen (induction stove) with plenty of saucepans and pots. FIlled with spices, good knifes, plenty of chopping boards. Very clean, great facilities overall. Many places to sit, nice view of the city, very close to the lake. Would recommend. Only downside is due to the building being old, the walls are thick making wifi slow or unavailable in some rooms.
Very friendly and helpful staff that bent over backwards to answer any questions we had and solve all of our problems. Brilliant location as 5 minutes walk from lake. Great atmosphere with central common room to meet people and lovely terrace to sit at night.. Facilities brilliant with a modern kitchen and clean showers and toilets. Can't recommend this hostel enough.
Got such a friendly welcome! They showed us around and recommend activities etc around lake bled and even helped us book rest of our trip. Great facilities and location of hostel. Would come back for sure!
This hostel is probably the nicest I've ever stayed in. The staff are brilliant, giving a quick tour of the hostel and pointing out the local highlights. The rooms are very comfortable and the lounge/kitchen area is a great social space; particularly for solo travellers to meet. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking your own meals or there are plenty of food/drink options within 100m of the hostel. I ended up staying 2 extra nights which was no problem to arrange and the best decision I made!
Super friendly staff, very helpful and informative. Location is right on the laje and close to supermarkets and bars. Heaps of activities to do. Clean dorms and bathrooms. Definitely do the gorge tour!
Amazing hostel, great location, beautiful view! One thing is security- I was given a key that would open the front door and my room, I didn't use it once as nothing was ever locked. But they did provide with big lockers that could fit my backpack. Otherwise I would recommend the hostel to everyone! Great place to meet people! Staff are friendly and helpful, great deck area, big kitchen, close to everything!
100 percent best hostel in slovania !!!
Great hostel with super nice and helpful staff! Located only 2 minutes away from the bus station and 3 minutes away from the lake. Although I was only in Bled for 1 night, I would definitely stay at Castle Hostel 1004 again!
Our favourite hostel on our interrailing trip! Castle 1004 is really friendly, with a great atmosphere! It was really easy to meet people. All the staff were really helpful, and there were loads of really cool affordable trips to go on (the Vintgar gorge was our favourite!). It was really close to the lake, and also to lots of bars and restaurants. The hostel itself was really nice, clean and had everything we needed! Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable!
Had a lovely stay here. The staff are great and helpful. There is a free tour to the gauge which is fun. Great location close to the lake.

This hostel is great!! Castle bled really stands out from the other hostels I've stayed in and the staff are super friendly and helpful. Would happily stay here again! Literally 2 minutes from the lake too. They also offered up some great tours. I did the vintagauge and hike. Highly recommend this tour, the views are stunning! Only thing I thought was a problem was the playstation in the common room ; )
Amazing hostel, great staff, beautiful view, everything you need. Incredible location, right by the lake, they organise lots of excursions... The excursion to the gorge we got a free drop off and pick up and then he took us on a mountain hike to see one of the most beautiful views. Stay here!!!
Nice place. The room was a bit cramped and I don't think there were sufficient toilets or showers, but it's a very friendly hostel with a Lovely deck. I recommend it.
Staff were great very helpful and organised! Only thing quite pricy but overall best help from staff at a hostel we have ever had
It was lovely to be greeted upon arrival by a member of staff, however an extended tour plus chat was a bit much after a very long day of travelling. The facilities were new and clean, with th comfiest beds we've stayed in, but the kitchen was very cramped for the number of guests staying. We had several issues with there being no hot water in the showers, not ideal after a day in 30°C heat! We could not fault the location and staff were very helpful, adding to the good atmosphere.
