First we want to clarify that the staff members were really helpful and nice. We stayed there two nights and the second night we realised our bed was infested with BED BUGS. After telling the guy in charge (who was also the only waiter in the fully crowded pub), he called his boss a couple of times without having the... More

Sax hostel is an easy walking distance to the centre of Ljubljana. The wifi was a bit slow at times, but we never had any real problems. The beds were very comfortable but a bit freaky if people moved around. The bathroom had a fantastic shower. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and more than happy to help with... More

This hostel is only a 5 minute walk from the old center of Ljubljana. We had a warm welcome at the hostel. The staff was very kind and helpful. Unfortunately we only stayed for one night. But we are definitely coming back.

Private room and dorms are raw, but fine, beside the BED BUGS EVERYWHERE. Service is fine, lady wakes you up pretty straight forward wen it is time to clean the rooms. Nothing is very sound proof in the hostel. The worst still being the bugs.

Stayed here for two nights in mixed dorm room. Overall the facilities were good, however one main issue I had was that there was no fridge/common room area. The Sax pub at the front is a great place to chill out, meet other travellers and mingle with some of the locals. The lady (forgot her name 😔) who operates the... More

I was pleasantly surprised with the comfort of the beds, and the quality of the hostel overall. the staff were brilliant, and it was great having the bar just downstairs! The shared room didn't smell wonderful, but after a spritz of air freshener it was not a... More

It's 5am. I am leaving in 2 hours. I cannot sleep. Every clock tick, I had to scratch myself. It's the worst bed bug encounter I've had. I manage to kill one bed bug in the first night, made the staff aware of the situation. I didn't want to write a bad review knowing the negative impact it might bring... More

Quality hostel. Stayed in a private room which had x2 bunk beds. Nice facilities, showers great and it's brilliant how travellers leave their old toiletries behind like shower gel and toothpaste etc. I actually never used any of my own which was great! The lady on reception was great, very helpful and friendly. The guy who worked in the bar... More
