This really is a near-perfect hostel. Great location and amazingly welcoming staff. Special mention to Jasper and Jaka who were brilliant hosts!

Hostel was fantastic! Could consider installing some air conditioning though, it gets really warm in the rooms at night which makes it quite difficult to sleep!

One of the top hostels I've stayed at. The paid and volunteer staff are all very helpful and keep you in a good mood. The free trip to the gorge is unmissable, (the only hostel ever to give me a free trip). Lake bled is unreal, I will 100% be returning.

Really fun, clean hostel. Only thing was the six bed room was really cramped. Seemed like they squeezed another bed into a four bed room.

Great hostel, fantastic location with friendly and knowledgable staff. The lake is just a short stroll away as is the bus station. I can't recommend the Triglav National Park day trip + rafting enough, it is the best day ever. The rooms are a little smaller than some places but you can't have it all! Will be back.

The best hostel that I have ever stayed at. The staff are so friendly and helpful and it's a 2 minute walk from Lake Bled. The wristbands give you discounts all around Bled in bars and activities and stuff, which is also really helpful when you're on a budget. The hostel had a nice community feel to it and even after we'd checked out we were allowed to stay and chill. Hopefully I'll be coming back soon

The wifi signal is weak in some rooms. Other parts of the hostel are pretty well.

I was impressed with how clean this hostel was despite the huge number of travelers staying here. The staff was more than helpful and super friendly. The showers, kitchen, and common room were very nice and made me feel at home. However, the locker space was quite limited and there were a lot of rowdy people packed into my dorm, which made it feel a bit cramped in the room. Nonetheless, the staff and facilities were great, as was the location and proximity to markets and restaurants.

Overall a nice place to stay in Bled. Great location, nice facilities, and a good atmosphere. My only issue with this place was their inability to enforce their own polices. While checking in the comments made by the staff about the quiet times made it apparent the night before this was an issue, however for the next two nights that I was there the problem with the noise level late into the night continued. Acknowledge you have a problem and actually fixing it are two different things.

Room itself was a little cramped, however this was made up for by the excellent common room, kitchen area and extremely helpful staff. Excellent relaxed atmosphere in the hostel. Staff willing to go out of their way to help. Overall really enjoyed my stay and would consider returning and recommending to friends.

We loved it here great atmosphere staff are amazing and friendly and they will make an effort to take you on FREE trips and guided tours, Very clean, staff speak perfect English, Mika was so friendly and Barbara's English is so good she actually sounds British. Only thing I would say is that the rooms could do with fans or aircon! I would stay here again! Thanks :)

Amazing stay here! It's in a really good location with bars close (literally downstairs), supermarket around the corner, bus stop down the road, and good food places. The staff are really lovely and super helpful. It's the place to stay! The bathrooms can get a but dirty throughout the day, but they are cleaned daily :) good kitchen, big rooms, big lockers and comfortable beds. Make sure you go on the tour of the gorge and go up to the lookout! It's amazing!! I highly recommend this hostel!

By far the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff are extremely friendly, helpful, and attentive. The hostel is frequently cleaned, has an incredible view, and a great party atmosphere. I genuinely am excited to go back in the future! There are SO MANY great things to do in Bled, and you can access them all very easily from this hostel; the atmosphere is great and the common area is great for meeting people too! The owner Miha, is very friendly and great to speak to. Same with all staff!!!

Loved this hostel, loved Lake Bled, and it's an added bonus that the girls who work here are cute as well! Room was a bit small but you're only there to sleep anyway. Met some great people and had a wonderful time. Great location. Lake Bled will always have a good place in my heart and I can't wait to go back.

It's well located, and the facilities are clean for the most part. The hostel is a bit too small in size for the amount of people it can have. The common room, for example, can accommodate maybe 10 to 15 people sitting max. The other 30 or so are standing. Now this would not be big deal if the wifi worked in the rooms, but it does not. So you have a situation where you basically have to go to the common room, but it can only sit 10 to 15 people... The staff members are nice. Especially Barbara!
