Not a lot of bathrooms, only 1 per floor. The hostel seemed mostly empty but the dorm I was in was completely full.


Convenient location, 3 min from the coast/ harbour. Many children in the hostel. Staff very slow and not active-looking. Very noisy, there were children running and playing in the hostel after 10 p.m and the staff did not react at all despite their silence policies you can see everwhere in the hostel. Cooking facilities very poor and dirty!


Koper is small, so everything was near. The staff was nice. I think the biggest problem in this hostel is that it only has 2 bathrooms! Besides my room was al little bit packed, maybe too small for 6 people.


A small night lamp for every bed would be highly appreciated! Very convenient lockers!


Quite a few problems with this hostel. Firstly there is no kitchen, just a sink, so cooking for yourself is impossible. Staff quite often didnt know what was going on, like they gave us the keys to the wrong rooms. Also the door to our room just didnt lock- it was a dorm room anyway so clearly there would be people coming in and out but just made it seem a lot less secure. Didnt really meet anyone while staying there, not a great atmosphere


Very nice, well-located hostel!


Great little hostel perfectly located. Very clean with friendly staff. The only drawback is it is a bit small in terms of common areas or other facilities, but to stay in the old city that should be expected .

Hardly any staff around, not a great hostel atmosphere for meeting people, cleanliness average.


Decent small hostel located inside the old town. Spacious room with lockers, really helpful staff, cheap washing/drying facilities. Bathrooms are fine. Kitchen is tiny and basic. Can hear everything in the street though (especially pigeons). Overall would recommend and would stay again.


Nice atmosphere...!!!!

There's absolutely nothing to criticize. The staff was very friendly and recommended us some really nice places to visit.

It's a good location,clean beds, good room(08p) and a locker! The reception was always closed,there is nobody there to take care of the place! Some people were in the room upstairs n the music was loudy til 3am and there were making a lots of noise!One guy knocked on my door,completely drunk and thought was their friend's room!I think he was not staying in the hostel,cuz they were coming in and out frequently and banging the door!Next morning benches were crossed in front of the reception!
