Good location along the river, so easy to find after a night in the town. Slightly lacking in atmosphere perhaps due to the lack of common room. Also there were no real kitchen facilities. Room itself was big and spacious with the added plus of air conditioning which we were extremely thankful for during our stay.

WE LOVE THIS PLACE! Great starting location for seeing the city and a great atmosphere with the attached pub. Staff were really helpful and were great for pointing out non-touristy areas. Would highly recommend.. Although there is no kitchen :(

Lovely staff and is out the back of a bar so the atmosphere out front is great. Walking distance from everything.

Awesome pub and fun spot! Wish there was a lounge area besides the pub- made it tricky to get to know other travelers. Staff was very helpful when you could reach them, but they were often busy running the bar.

I stayed 2 nights and had a great time. Some comments say that Sax is away from the city, but it's really not far. It's a short walk to get to the city center and other parts. The best part of the river is close by and there are several restaurants/bars on the same street as Sax. Staff was very nice and helpful (I think her name was Tanya?), and the bartender recommended some great beers. Bicycles could be in slightly better shape, because they are great for exploring the area.

The hostel is really nice. Beds are comfortable and the room was clean and worm. Staff is really nice also. The bar is right next to the hostel but they didn't go crazy with the music so we could get a good night sleep.

Absolutely loved this hostel. Staff that we encountered both in the bar and at check in were so friendly and hospitable! This place is very clean and comfortable, just not extremely big (if you're looking to meet people). It was perfect for us as we preferred to mostly venture out. Would definitely stay again!

The place is clean and comfortable. I just wish there was a kitchen, even a tiny little one would have been OK. :)

Nice little hostel, rooms were cute and clean, well decorated and the staff/owner was really friendly and helpful! In front of the hostel there is a little pub. The location itself is good, it's still in the center and around 10 minutes walking distance to the main sights/ the mainsquare. We would definitely stay there again.

Sax is a lovely little hostel in Ljubljana. It's located on a cool street lined with a few restaurants/cafes/bars (with a great bar that plays strictly jazz music and offers craft beers connected to the hostel), has really comfortable beds, and nice bathrooms. We stayed in the 2-bed private for a fair price and it felt like a getaway from regular hostel living. Highly recommended

Sax Hostel was a great place to rest my head for my one night in Ljubljana. The staff was friendly and even had my room ready for me early. I had a restful night and could keep my bag there the next day until my train arrived. Definitely recommend!

Friendly staff, no kitchen, clean bathroom, not in the centre of the city and not much of a social vibe - no common area. Comfy beds and covers.

Nice hostel with cute attached bar full of locals. Only a couple of minutes walk from the old centre

This hostel was really not pleasant. The room was incredibly small and not that clean. The wood panelling above the bed had bugs crawling out of it which dropped onto the bed at night. The shower was broken so didn't stay up which was not easy to use if you are over 4ft. Even though you can hear the doorbell throughout the building we had to wait for another guest to turn up to let us in and find the owner sat in the office. I would not recommend this place

really nice hostel. great location, friendly staff. one possible issue is that there is an entrance bell that sounds over the entirety of the hallway (if somebody rings it at night, it will wake you up). but otherwise it's a really nice place.
