In typical slovenian house/chalet a very friendly hostel, cleaning and free wifi zone. Near the city center, about 5 min by foot. Free parking in front off. The owners were very helpful with touristic information and maps. Thanks and best regards from Italy.

No curtains in the room, which in summer is a problem (it gets hot and the light wakes you up very early). No catering facilities beyond a shared kettle (no fridge!). Poor WiFi - had to be by the door for a decent connection. Nice position in Ljubljana - quiet area, but 25 min walk to train station. Pub next... More

The hostel is ok! The localization is excellent, with a "Mercartor" very close, the bedrooms are clean and silent, the bathroom is clean and the staff attentive. Is a good hostel to stay, I recommend.

I've stayed in a few hostels in my time, ranging from crap to nice, and this one is the very best. Everything about it seemed meticulously maintained. The beds were super comfortable, and came with really nice duvets. I slept so well here. It is about a 5 minute walk to the center of town, has laundry services conveniently next... More

Cool, small hostel on a great location and for a great prize. We had a double room, with shared bathroom what is the only minus. But the bathrooms are clean. Another minus is a wooden floor, so you hear each person walking through the house. The stuff is nice and the surrounding is great. Central location, quite, bur with more... More

What a beautiful location, we drove here from Italy. Easy to park outside the hostel for 40cents per hour and free from 5pm- 7am. We stayed in the 8 bed dorm and the beds were very comfortable with high beams. Watch out when choosing a bed by the window as I did bump my head in the morning. We stayed... More

Stayed in this hostel on holiday with my brother for 3 nights. The reception staff were always very helpful and enthusiastic - happy to recommend us good restaurants and bars in the city and the best day trips around Slovenia. The place was very clean and tidy, and the jazz-theme made it cosy and charming where it might otherwise be... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sax Hostel is Ljubljana's newest hostel, housed under the roof of the city's legendary jazz pub, Sax Pub. We are ideally located along the river running through the city's lively old center, where music lovers of all ages and walks of life have gathered for 25 years. Over the bustling terrace of Sax Pub, behind the graffiti-clad facade, are immaculately renovated doubles and dorm rooms, named after blues and jazz greats. To mix with Ljubljana's hip crowd, you need only to descend the stairs and take in the music of the pub, which on Thursdays is live. All rooms are equipped with power-outlets, reading lights, and free wi-fi. Every guest is provided with a personal locker for luggage and valuables. A fleet of bikes, ideal for exploration of the city, can be rented cheaply. Towels and linens are provided. Wheelchair accessible. ... more   less
