    The hostel is in a very cool location (you can just google it) and the staff was very nice, the breakfast was great too, we were very happy with everything. The only thing I missed were curtains over the beds, but since they weren't bunk beds I'm not sure how that would be possible.

    Unique hostel in a cool area of Ljubljana and a short walk to the city center, stayed in a 2-bed cell so cell mates can be 50/50. Everything was very clean and felt more like a hotel than a hostel. Highly recommended and book well in advance. Cons: shared toilets and showers are in the same room and not the most social hostel

    I was in a four bed and really happy with feeling safe and it being clean. Kitchen, bar space and gardens make it really easy to meet people and only a short walk in to the centre. Although there is cool art and bars next door some people (nothing to do with the hostel) can be a bit intimidating at night for female solo travellers but overall not a problem and had a really good stay.

    Really loved this hostel. The building itself is really cool and lends itself to a very laid back and friendly atmosphere. The staff were super nice and we found it really easy to get chatting to people throughout our stay. The free breakfast is also really good and such a nice way to start the day.

    Top quality of facilities are provided, with staff all very friendly and helpful. Additional benefits like bar and food also all available and can’t beat a breakfast included! Super close to train and bus station and not too far a walk to the main places to see. Good spots to also chill in. Only minor downside was being on my own and in one of the 2 bed cell rooms, it wasn’t the easiest to meet and socialise with others staying there (others staying in the dorm may have the opposite of course!).

    Overall, the hostel has good facilities and is very clean. Felt more like a hotel than a hostel (lots of older people & families staying) so wouldn’t recommend for solo travellers wanting to meet people. The 6 person dorm was very small (couldn’t sit up in my bed) due to low roof. The location was okay but felt a bit dodgy at night. The staff at the hostel were friendly however were rarely at the front desk. This was particularly a problem when we arrived at night and stood outside pressing the buzzer for

    Very nice decor, very clean, and the history in this hostel is quite interesting. Also, the free breakfast is a huge bonus. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much of an atmosphere at all. Lots of people working on laptops and older people on group trips. Not ideal for solo travellers looking to meet people. Also, the area seemed a tad sketchy at night.

    Very Good

    21 Sep 2022
    The facilities of the hostel are very good, in excellent condition, clean and well maintained. It's a 10-min stroll from the city centre and near the train station, but some dodgy people hanging around outside the hostels. Unfortunately, it was pretty boring during our stay. Nobody was hanging around in the hostel, no activities, no chance to meet any people at all. Seems like most guests were just looking for cheap accommodation.
