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

this hostel is very nice but probably not for you if your on a budget. there's a bar downstairs which somewhat compensates for the lack of a common room. the decor is clever and interesting. the rooms were clean and tidy. only one shower for the whole of a large dorm. the ceilings are a tad low if your tall...

This is a great hostel with a fantastic local bar connected to it. Within walking distance from the main train station and the city center. There is a grocery store very close as well. Lots of charm and character and very clean. We stayed in a four person room with three people and it was tight but manageable. Excellent staff...very... More

It got quite loud at night because of some English guys who came in really late and drunk and proceeded to talk loudly about their whole... More
