    I was in a 5 bed dorm, which was perfect, no bunk beds, much space and a wonderful view out of the huge window directly on the castle. The staff is sweet and the location is great!

    Cleanliness of the sanitary should definitely be improved. The interior is somewhat old fashioned. Furthermore the photo of the stairs doesnt match with reality (in reality is black) which makes it rather dark. The common areas (e.g. kitchen) small compared to other hostels. The staff was helpful (however sometimes absent).

    Great location but the kitchen is pretty poor & not looked after. There was no common room/area where you could meet other guests.

    Perfect location (in the center of Ljubljana). The beds and the showers were okay, the toilets and the kitchen were rather dirty and especially the toilets smelled. Check-in and check-out were fast and simple. For our two night stay it was good.

    The hostel was nice enough for a youth hostel. Nothing amazing about it, the showers and the kitchen were quite dirty when we arrived though but it was better the day after. The beds were not comfy and the sheets worn out. The location is great which is why we chose it.

    Stayed here for only one night because everything else was booked. Honestly, this hostel isn't terrible, but there are much better options nearby. Staff wasn't very helpful or welcoming. Hostel wasn't very clean. Best thing about this place is the location. Stay here if you have to.

    Pros: nice staff and especially an extremely good location. For people with very little time to spend in the city, it might be a good option. Cons: really bad amenities and lack of comfort. Our room didn't have light and the beds weren't comfortable and noisy whenever somebody moved around. The bedsheets provided were cleaned at least. The bathrooms were shared and they and the hostel overall is very old and the decoration very austere.

    This was the worst hostel I have ever stayed in - the beds, if you could call them that, were paper thin and basically a massive spring sticking out all over the mattress. The logo for the hostel literally has a spring sticking out of the bed - is this some kind of warning? Hostel was very noisy and not well ventilated. Supposedly had wi-fi but this didn’t work. We actually checked out a day early because we couldn’t deal with being woken up ~50 times during the night due to the beds and noise.
