    I visited during the low season therefore 2 out of my 3 nights my room was empty. On the last night I met a lovely man called Eiad. The staff were really friendly and offered my a free drink off coffee on arrival. Location was superb as it was only a minute walk from the centre and 10 minute walk from the bus/ train station

    Despite efforts being made on cleaning, unfortunately, I got bitten by bed bugs. The hostel owner eventually refunded me 1 night but did not offer as compensation, I had to ask for it. I'd suggest you ask for high steam cleaning of your bed prior to sleeping if you were staying here. I stayed for 3 nights and got bitten on the first night but was fine after I switched bed on the 2nd & 3rd nights.

    Had to wait 40 minutes calling and ringing doorbell over and over until someone let me in. WC smelled nauseating and showers were gender shared with only a small, flimsy curtain for privacy. Bed was essentially a mattress pad on the floor. Found bed bugs and bed bug bites everywhere. No lockers or storage of any kind. Felt like staying in a haunted hostel. If you like American Horror Story, bed bugs, showering in front of every gender, and feeling sick from the smell of the bathrooms, go for it!

    Felt like staying at a haunted, abandoned hostel. There’s no common room & NOT be the place to meet people/get to know other travelers. This hostel might not be that old prison cell hostel in Ljubljana, but I’d bet money that the beds are from there!!! We are still recovering- probably the worst bed I’ve ever slept on. We asked to have something printed but never received anything. Staff was no where to be seen most of the time & we waited at the door the check in for 15 min with no answer.

    Although the location is amazing the hostel itself is lacking. The beds are a small thin mattress. If you get a three bed dorm two of the beds are quite close to each other. No common room. This place is bare bones and has only what you need, nothing extra to make it feel cosy. The building is also shared by a school so early morning is pretty loud with students climbing the echoing stairs (which is the hallway)

    This is easily the place with the worst facilities that I have stayed at. It wasn't awful. It is fine if you are just staying a night and need a bed otherwise I wouldn't recommend. The showers were shared male/female and there was only a curtain not doors. The top beds in the dorms is literally just a matress on the floor. Bed linen is old. No atmosphere at all. Staff were helpful though.

    I had to pay extra taxes. The mattress was very bad and old. I could feel the metal of it. Too expensive for that low quality.

    This place is awful, the beds are horribly uncomfortable, room was freezing, we wore our jackets to sleep, & the wifi did not work at all. The bathrooms smelled like they had never been cleaned. The staff weren't friendly or welcoming, when we arrived we stood outside ringing the bell for 20 minutes, we eventually left & sat in a nearby restaurant & went back later, again to stand outside ringing the bell for 10 minutes, the person who answered looked irritated we interrupted her phone call
