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!


Nice hostel, very modern and good social area with nice kitchen and a great balcony. Great location close to the lake etc. Staff were mixed, mostly nice but thought they were a bit cool and kept recommending certain activities that it was obvious they were on commission for.


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.


The staff were so friendly and helpful with recommending things to do. The area is simply beautiful; the hostel had a fantastic atmosphere, by far the best hostel I've stayed in.


Staff really go out of their way to help you! Would definitely recommend staying here Really good vibe


Great hostel!! Terrace is great for having drinks in the evening and for meeting other people. Would stay again, I loved it!


This was a very fun and social hostel. The staff was very helpful, and the events and tours they helped set up were a blast! I would stay here again for sure!


The location and facilities are very good, very new. The kitchen is perfect for even cooking a big meal. DUring our stay we had to leave the common room at 22:00 because of complaints of neirbours. There is a bar right under the common room, so thats a bit weird. The staff is very helpfull buth the atmosphere isnt that good. After all a nice hostel, but difficult to drink there a beer in the evening....


Castle Hostel was amazing! They organised lots of cool day trips for people who love exploring, the hostel itself had a great kirchen area, clean rooms and bathrooms. Great atmosphere for solo travellers, would definitely stay again :)


Overall an outstanding hostel setting... Recommend for backpacker


Very few rooms but hostel is cool and staff is extremely friendly!
