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.
Friendly staff, a little bit of a walk to town, but decent patio bar and large, clean rooms. Would stay again.
This hostel was really clean and located in a very nice area within walking distance to major sites. The pub downstairs was also fun. The staff were not the most helpful in terms of providing recommendations and were difficult to find as there never seemed to be anyone in the office. The pillows were really uncomfortable. Would consider staying here again.
Had an excellent stay here there was a mix up with the rooms when we arrived (not the fault of the hostel but the fault of some really ignorant men old men from yorkshire). However the problem was dealt with very well by the very friendly bar man at the hostel bar. Highly recommended very friendly hostel, great place for travelers to meet new people.
Not a bad hostel but not a good one either. It lacked the "hostel" feeling that many backpackers look for. Honestly if you're looking for a place to rest your head then its fine, if you want to party and/or meet new people I suggest going elsewhere.
It doesn't have a kitchen, but it's the only drawback I found. Great place.
All in all a great experience, very friendly staff! Would have enjoyed a common room and kitchen, but you can socialize in the Sax pub downstairs!

The location was great, right next to the river and on a fun street of different bars and cafés. Staff was helpful at recommending places to go for food, etc. the four bed room was a bit squished but the bed was comfortable. The dorm rooms looked to have more space thought. I'd recommend to stay here.
The location of this hostel is perfect right next to the the river in Ljubljana....The hostel itself however really needs a kitchen so you do not have to eat out all the time. Quite a shame since it is right next to a grocery store. A common room would be nice too.
Absolutely brilliant, couldn't ask for more. What this hostel lacks in a 'common area' it makes up for with an excellent small bar serving coffee in the morning, and turns into a bar from afternoon onwards. Great location. Just out of the city centre - 5 mins walk along the river.

A little further from the train station but Jlubjlana is such a small place...Huuuuge beds compared to other hostels and more comfortable too...Mateja was awesome and really gave me a lot of info on where to go in slovenia to get the best experience without being surrounded by tourists...hot showers and laid back atmosphere in the bar out front where you can meet so many locals who are so friendly..if you're lucky like me, you might even enjoy a VIP night at top 6..I can't dance, but it was fun!
