    Youth hostels are fantastic and this one is no exception. It is such a big place that meant I could have plenty of quiet time. The staff were very helpful and fun to speak to. A very basic breakfast is offered for €3, which you can buy on the day. It's basic, but buffet style, so can be filling too. Hiring a bike was also very easy. The facilities were plenty but unfortunately suffer from the common "too small shower cube with no curtain so that you're putting your on your pants on a wet floor".

    Proteus is a located in a big building which has other activities for local youth such as ping pong, band training, basketball etc so there's lots of young people roaming around the premises. That didn't really cause any trouble since they shut themselves up by like 10pm so it's was very quiet to sleep. Hostel part of the building is new and nice with private parking which made me choose this hostel. All in all nice hostel worth the money close to the cave and the castle

    The website Proteus in Postojna is the perfect place to stay, for families or singles or groups. It was very clean and the staff were extremely helpful. It is also set in an ideal location, just a couple of hundred metres from town square, close to shops and services. I love the large green space at front of the hostel with play equipment for children, and the huge old trees are very picturesque. The proximity of the hostel to Postojna. caves and Predjama castle is also very handy.

    Great hostel has everything you need. Atmosphere was fine but not great for solo travellers or people looking to meet other travellers.

    I was a bit confused because the place is big and there are a lot of kids going to school or something. But it has everything you need, I met some nice people, staff very friendly and breakfast is just 3€!

    Great and practical hostel with everything you need. High standard rooms with desk and cupboard. Decent bathrooms. Kitchen rather small and sparsely equipped, but modern. Not many young travellers around. Shops nearby.

    A very youthful youth hostel. Plenty of large groups of school-age children around. Certainly not a party hostel, but the breakfast was decent value and there are some cool hangout areas. Great value and comfort for a short stay.

    PERFECT location. great hostel in general. the facilities could be a little more appropriate to travelers (bed-side table for upper bunkers, space in bathroom to leave stuff).

    Staff and room were nice but it’s a soulless place to be honest, and nothing goes on in Postonja apart from the caves. I’d recommend taking a day trip to the caves from Ljubljana and not staying.
