Just few minutes away from the old city centre, a quiet location with a vibrant pub attached to it. Great staff, very friendly and very helpful with any information needed. Thanks, Stasa! One of the cleanest and for sure best hostels we've stayed in. No common room but the pub in front makes up for it. Had a best night... More

The staff were lovely and very welcoming. We took a private room which was rather small but adequate - the decor was a little ropey. Sadly there is no common room which makes meeting other travellers rather difficult, but I suppose that's what the Sax Pub, situated next door, is for. However there was no kitchen which would make self-catering... More

Location is great, few minutes walking to main square, a lot of pubs around, but best one is actually in the hostel itself. Great selection of beers! It is a small hostel, so during the summer it is very busy, rooms looks great with nice graffiti on the walls, very stylish ;)

We slept there one night. In the morning we showed to the staff bed bugs we found in the sheets. During the day a lot bites started to appear on my body (face, neck, hands, foots). That was really annoying and bites almost disappeared in 15 days. The staff offered us a 10% discount to stay another night and they... More

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
