This I'd the least pretentious hostel I've ever been to. Staff is awesome, comfy beds, great place
A very nice hostel with great staff and facilities. The rooms are nice and there aren't bunk beds. However as a solo traveler the atmosphere was a little lacking despite the hostels bar.
Just an OK hostel. No kitchen, no social common area to hang out (there is a bar attached to the hostel but it was totally empty that night), and a bit removed from the city centre. The rooms were clean and simple. Ljubljana is a fun city and it would've been nice to have a hostel with a more fun atmosphere.
It's not a bad place, but the whole thing feels a bit dead, even though it's behind a bar. It's a little bit out the way too. The staff I met were really nice and helpful and the bar itself is really cool, but cool and quiet. I think I chose it for the sax jazz novelty.
Great hostel, only downside was that there was no kitchen
Nice jazzy interior design , great bar with terrace and live music 2times a week in front with superb waitress(Anja), beds are very comfy and the place is really clean. 10 min walk along the river and you are win a very centre by "the 3 bridges". The owners are very kind and helpful

Excellet hostel. So friendly! Great small size so feels like a hotel/guesthouse, but still lively downstairs with the bar. Would definitely recommend

Absolutely awesome!!! If you are looking for the perfect place to chill and escape from reality in Ljubljana, Sax Hostel is probably the one! The personnel is really nice the bar plays mixes of old rock, jazz, reggae/dub... the drinks are cheap, the ambiance is calm and relax and it's located really close to the city center. Probably the best hostel I've ever experienced. My only regret is that I stayed only one night. Thank you so much Sax Hostel. I'll be back soon!
Extremely helpful staff! Checked times for buses and trains all without any worry. Beds are comfortable, the location is just a quick and wonderful walk away from the city. Would highly recommend
Great place to stay I would come back there is a nice relaxed vibe. Staff were very helpful and kind.
DON'T LET THE BED BUGS BITE!! Seriously, I moved hostels in Ljubljana because I woke up one morning covered in bites. Irish girls in the adjacent room also moved because of bugs. Stay here at your peril.
Great place to stay. Funky facade and cool bar. Not far but just enough distance away from the tourist strip to feel that Ljubljana peace and quiet. Easily accessible from public transport and walking distance to all sites, restaurants and bars. Would stay again for sure.
I stayed two days in this hostel, and I really liked it. The atmosphere is excellent, organized and safe hostel. Has a great decor, badrooms and toilets are so clean!! The only thing i didn't like is the hostel is a little bit away from the city center, but not so far, 15 minutes walking from the main square. If you want to drink a beer with your friends or make new friends you can do it on the hostel's bar ,is excellent! I Really indicate for who want to say in Ljubljana for a couple days!
Fantastic! Atmosphere was great, loved the decoration and the staff was helpfull and very kind.
Good rooms and like that there is wifi available. Easy 5-10 minute walk into the main part of town, and I enjoyed the bar attached to the hostel to hang out and have a drink. Good atmosphere.
Good hostel little bit outside from the center. But it is a really nice 10 min walk to the main square. No living room or anything, but a nice bar down stairs where it´s good to meet new friends. The rooms are nice and clean and big locker for your stuff. Really good hotel all over
Excellent location within walking distance of sights, clean, secure and great value for money. Negatives - paper thin walls so anyone walking by your room sounds like their IN your room. Too few bathroom and shower facilities. On my floor one shower and 2 toilets for approx 20 guests. Rooms are a little claustrophobic and stuffy. However the pub downstairs has a great friendly atmosphere and is a great place to hang out. No kitchen or common room. Laundry service next door Is excellent.
Small and cozy hostel situated 5-10 min walk from Ljubljana city centre. The lady running the hostel was very helpful and kind. Only negative I have to say is that a small part of the wooden floor just outside our dorm squeaked when you walked on it.
No one was in the office when I arrived so the staff at the pub had to ring them. No common room - only a couch in the hallway.
