    Great, friendly staff that really helped us get around! The hostel itself is in a great location, (10 mins from bus/train station and in the middle of the city centre) but be warned if staying on a Sunday that you'll be woken super early by the loud church bells! They provide you with linen and sheets to make your own bed, and the rooms are pretty clean! There are showers on floor 2 and toilets on each floor, but the showers weren't the cleanest.

    The location is great.. But the hostel was dirty and messy.. To get into my room, i passed the shower room.. which makes uncomfortable for the peolple showering (shower with no door, only curtains..) The beds are really uncomfortble, noisy and very old.. you can feel the steel spring in your body... The girl at the reception was great, she was very nice and helpful.

    Good location. Toilets were generally clean in appearance, but smelt terrible (like that strong pong of public toilets). Most showers were broken and hand-held without any hooks to hang your belongings and they weren't very clean. Room was basic, but okay for the price. The lockers were quite old and small and out in the corridor so we didn't feel our belongings were very secure. Room doors had to be locked behind you and didn't feel very safe. Would rather pay more to stay elsewhere.

    Was easy access from the bus station and lovely welcoming from staff. However, the rooms were very dirty when we arrived and unclean unfortunately. The facilities such as the kitchen and showers were okay but were absolutely unhygienic to use. But the location is fabulous as it’s right outside the centre and next to lovely river

    We originally booked two nights and only spent one. The WiFi wasn’t working due to “construction” out on the main street (that’s a hard one to understand). The toilets were not cleaned and smelled horrible. Almost all of the showers on the second floor would not drain. The bed was super old and uncomfortable. Changing hostels saved our impression of Ljubljana.

    Shower very unclean (hair and grime everywhere), drain completely blocked and only one with an actual lockable door (just curtains for others) Toilets smelt very bad and there were only 2 between each floor (of about 15 people I think). The beds were creeky and the thin mattress and pillow was uncomfortable. Me and my friend had been split up into different rooms and she ended up sleeping 1 foot away from a stranger who snored very loudly all night. Not enough characters for all the problems.

    Not great value for money. The beds are obscenely uncomfortable and squeeky and the linen is stiff and ichy with a pathetic pillow. There was a little fan for a room of 8 people in mid summer. The shower rarely has hot water between 7-9am or 6-9pm. However, the location is amazing! I would say it is a €8 per night hostel for Slovenia’s standards. Basic, uncomfortable but has a great location.

The showers and toilets were unbelieveable disgusting!
