Best hostel I've stayed at in Europe in the last 2 months. The main two guys that run this place are incredibly friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. The people that this hostel attracts are great and there was a buzz of activity in the common room each night. Facilities are also top notch.
This hostel was made by the presence of Jaka and Micka. This also had the best atmosphere of any hostel I have been to. So many activities organised for you here too.
The hotel staff go out of their way to help and give information and tips to their guests. They are very friendly, very professional, speaking excellent English. I found particularly nice and special that the hostel organized for free a tour for their guests to Vintgar Gorg and an awesome view point to the lake. At night there was always chating and playing games going on the living room but it was possible to fall asleep around 11 pm.
The person in charge -I forgot his name - is very likeable and keeps the kitchen tidy even if the guests don't cooperate. The hostel's terrace provides a good view of the city as well. The rooms are just too squeezed and it would have been great if they allow more space , ie, by removing some beds. You feel like you're in a concentration camp.
Amazing hostel!! The guy that owns this place is sooo helpful, so easy to met people and do everything you want to to do, if you want an enjoyable stay, this hostel is a must! Thank you guys for the best time!!
Staffs are very helpful. They helped me to get reservation tickets without going to train station. It's perfect place for people who want to interact with different people.
loved it so much here we had to come back. the boys looking after the place were so helpful and even went out of there way to help us with special requests. great location. would go anywhere else

Booked for a night, end up staying for 3 nights. Also due to some travel changes, they were VERY accommodating in changing my bookings. The most homely and best hostel I've stayed so far. Highly recommend the tour to the gorge and up the hill with them. I stayed in most times too and Castle had been a great spot to recuperate and recharge from long travels.
Great value for money, super helpful and lovely staff, great atmosphere. Kitchen, bedrooms and living area a little cramped with so many people but it makes it easy to meet people! I really had a great time, thanks so much!
Loved this place! Great for a solo traveller, really easy to meet people. Do the gorge walk, have a toasty, and grill out on the deck! The kitchen is a great spot to hang out. The beds are comfy and lights and power points at each bed. This hostel has got it all figured out.
Excellent hostel. Huge kitchen, perfect location, plenty of power points and nice terrace. Staff was the best. Thanks for the great stay.
There are a lot of hostels right at this corner. Kinda confusing.. This one is the long wooden shack where reception is. Wonderful place! These hostels will put motels out of business.
the best staff I have ever encountered. felt more at home here than I have anywhere else in Europe.

A perfect location, only a few meters from Bled's Lake, very nice and helpful staff, clean and modern rooms, bathrooms and kitchen, nice atmosphere (people from all over the world meeting at night in the common room, cooking, playing cards or just talking to each other). It's the best hostel I have ever stayed at ! Highly recommandable! Enjoy :)
Probably the most important feature of this hostel is its staff. People like Mija and Jaka went far beyond their attention to a guest. Thank you friends Nolberto Munier
What a great place to stay! Clean, inviting, friendly and fun all wrapped into one. Great location as well. Would stay again in a heartbeat!
One of the best hostels we've stayed in! Staff were helpful and always around, wonderful atmosphere and a great common room with board games and stuff always going on, and best of all - only a 2 minute walk to Lake Bled! We will most certainly be back :)
Brilliant hostel, very good for a solo traveller to meet new people. Hostel very clean, staff cool, and they organise a trip taking you on a gorge tour and a mini hike for free! Definitely recommend this hostel
One of my favourite hostels that I've stayed at in Europe. Staff were fantastic and were always around to answer questions. They had no issues with booking another night for me and literally did it right on the spot when I asked. Location is great, the hostel is clean, and they organize many activities for guests to take part in. Great place for a solo traveler as the common areas make it really easy to meet people.
This hostel was amazing. They could not have been more helpful! Even gave us a free ride from the mountain we had been hiking back from the hostel. And they gave us a phone to call them with. Plus, even though I had checked out I was able to use the facilities after my big hike. It was an amazing experience and I would highly recommend them! Hopefully I'll be back in the winter one day!
