We liked everything about this hostel! It was clean, safe (strong, medium size lockers for every guest), staff was really nice and helpful, however the best thing thing was its location - right by the lake Bled! Outdoor area was really cool, with candles and tables - great for hanging out with other guests. There is no bar in the hostel but you can buy beer and wine and they also have coffee machine and some vending machines with snacks etc.

Taking a shower was a bit dreadful since there was virtually no hot water the two nights I was there! Kitchen area was messy/dirty and there really wasn't much that you could use to cook. One of the two stove tops didn't work, which meant having to queue in order to cook something up. 12-bed dorm next to common area/reception, so there is a lot of commotion all the time. On the bright side, staff were very friendly and helpful, and the "villa" is literally steps away from the lake! YGWYPF


Great hostel, perfectly located and the staff was nice and helpful. You can get bikes and a kajak for little money. The only thing that needs improvement is the bathrooms on the 1st floor


The place is beautiful, at a perfect location just a second from the lake.. On the other hand- we payed for a room with a bathroom+toilet, But the toilet didnt work, and there wasnt any hot water to have a shower.. So we were quite disapointed, and the staff didnt manage to help us at all.. But we were only there for one night, so hopefuly its not always like that..

Hi Ella, thank you for your review! We remember your stay and I have actually went back to the hostel, after the receptionist called me, to check what is happening with water, however everything was ok through the whole hostel and there were no other complaints. He tried to help, however there was nothing wrong with heating. I am sorry that you felt like we don't care - we take all of our guests comments into considerations and try to help straight away. Kind regards! Manca, hostel manager


Ok but could be really good. Had a great time here, very social, awesome staff, nice location and decent sized rooms. Dorm was poorly laid out and lockers are too small for bags. Bathrooms were upstairs but were clean. Kitchen was tiny.


It's located in a really nice place, just in front of Bled Lake. The staff is helpful and friendly, always smiling and helpful. Definitely, if I go back to Bled, I'll repeat this hostel!


I think they should have first renovated the whole thing and then open the hostel instead of the other way round. This feels like making quick money to invest in the renovation. Fine, but then give a nice discount. The kitchen was a total mess and nobody seemed to care. Breakfast does not really consist of much.

Thanks for your comment, we really need to replay, since this is the lowest one we ve got. We remember talking to you at the hostel, so you know you were staying in a building from 1871, which means also certain restrictions when it comes to renovation but it has to be clear you can t just have a building and than suddenly open a hostel, they are quite a lot of conditions and effort. Our breakfast is pretty famous and it is exactly what we say it is: healthy and a bit different - healthy jar :)


Overall a very nice place to stay, although the place needs air con in the rooms rather than leaving windows open all night - lots of bugs! Great place to stay though and right on the lake and not too expensive, I was very pleased overall.

Hey David! Thanks for your review! We are glad that you've liked your stay in hostel Vila Viktorija Bled. We have this amazing location right by Bled Lake, however that means that from time to time, there are more mosquitoes that there would be if we would be situated in the neighborhood. Thanks for staying with us! Kind regards from Bled


Amazing location right next to the lake, the staff were really helpful and friendly. There was a BBQ on the sunday night which was really good especially as the supermarkets are shut on Sundays. Room was very small but that was the only downside to this hostel.


We got really lucky with this hostel, great location and a great building (literally a villa on the lake). The staff went out of their way on several occasions to make sure we made the best out of our stay. Will definitely reccomend!


Beautiful place eight by the lake away from the hustle of the town. Has great kitchen facilities and perfect outside places to sit and chill in the evenings.

Right beside the lake with a room inside or seating outside to relax. Not very strict and good lockers and room locks. Kitchen could use a bit of work though

The staff was really friendly and very helpful, the hostel is very well located in a quite place of Bled, in front of the lake and really closer to Fun Bob. If I came back to Bled I will repeat at this hostel. Very clean, secure and you can park your car in front of the Villa. We rent the room of the tower (at the top of the building) for 4 people and we feel very confortable. This hostel is highly recommended.


Brilliant location, really are right beside the Lake! The staff were all really friendly and helpful, all really nice people!


try the specially made «healthy jar» for breakfast, delicious!
