I rarely take the effort to review hostels, but I think Sax Hostel deserves a special mention. I cannot recollect where I have last seen such value for money: central location, clean dorms and common bathrooms, and an extremely gracious and well-organized staff. The hostel feels more like a boutique hotel with a jazz vibe a than it does a backpacker haven. And as female traveler, I felt very safe. Thank you Sax, for making my Ljubljana visit special!

bed bugs! had to ask for new sheets in the middle of the night when i woke up with bugs on me!!!! hard to meet people as there is no common area
Excellent place to stay, location is good as only a short walk to the heart of metropolitan Ljubljana, clean and quiet also and a very efficient and helpful reception, good value for money and would recommend.
The hostel was really cool and the staff particularly nice and welcoming : Mateja helped me to feel like at home and was very kind to help me with my needs for cleaning my clothes, finding nice bars, the internet ...
I was only there 1 night and I arrived quite late so I didn't get a great feel for the place, but it seemed excellent
Loved our stay. Fantastic staff, clean
Great hostel walking distance to city centre. Staff were great. Nice bar with the hostel with a very good vibe. Definitely recommended.
I only stayed here one night but really loved the vibe of the place. It's a funky, artistic type place with amazingly soft blankets and helpful staff. It is also very close to the supermarket, but sadly quite a distance from the train and bus station, not too bad if you don't have heavy bags, but it was a hike for me with my backpack. The location was quite good for night atmosphere though as its surrounded by rock bars and nice pubs. Great value for money.
Hostel theme is music. There are discos everywhere. Its decorated with very good taste. Sometimes the space is a bit tight. Recomend

I only stayed here one night but this hostel had a nice vibe at night with its bar out front, however this is not the most social of hostels with no particular communal area. Very clean with the opportunity to wash clothes as well (relief after a week of camping!). Staff were super nice and helpful and it's a 3 minute walk into the center of town. Good for a brief visit.
Nice clean hostel, next to the sax pub. The pub closed at 23h (on thursday evening). Only 15 minutes walk to the old city center. If you pass through Ljubljana, ideal hostel for an overnight.
