The only night on our vacation we winged it. Rolled into town without a reservation. Plain and simple--nothing fancy about this place but it worked well for a nights rest. Breakfast was good with Elvis playing in the background. The town is small and there are several restaurants and bars nearby. Try to make sure to read up on parking... More

We stayed for three days. In the first morning we had several bites from bedbugs. One of them was poisioned so we had to take a girl to hospital where she got antibiotics. We talked to the owner, and he said he knows the porblem, but doesnt clean the rooms because of the crowd. He paid the hospital's invoice. He... More

We've stayed in room 304 on the third floor. The bed near the window have bed bugs. (I've stayed in the room yesterday, and got bites all over my body, and doctor confirmed that it's bed bugs bites). The bed bugs got nothing to do with whether the room clean or not, even it looked clean it might still have... More

I stayed in Val Hostel in 2012. March. After spending one night in my car in Triest, this place was a heavenly haven for me. The tiny room with the bunk bed was clean and far enough for me. I didn't like the idea of common bathroom and as I remember it was not totally clean, but I got over... More

Good budget option in beautiful Piran. Nothing exceptional, this, but perfectly located in the maze of narrow streets in this fabulous little Venetian-style seaside town on Slovenia's tiny coastline. The rooms are fine, the breakfast is pretty good, and there's free wifi & a PC in reception. All clean and very good value, just a little dark (some might say... More

It was - even thou we don't speak Slovenian or Italian - quite easy to notice that the owner was an complete Idiot. It cheep, clean and located in... More

Very friendly host when we arrived. Small but nice room with double bed, closet, desk, chair and sink. Toilet and two showers were shared. Small kitchen with very litte equipment, like one glass, two plates ... Very uncosy space! Breakfast was amazing! Very, very good! Beach is a 30 seconds walk. Bars and restaurants also. Not so much to do... More

There are several hostels to choose from in Piran, but I'm glad we went for Val. The name doesn't sound particularly inspiring but this place had everything we wanted - and more. The location is excellent, just a few steps from the restaurants, bars and beach, and in a town with so many winding, cobbled streets, it was handy to... More

Although the Hotel Val is nothing special, the location and price can't be beat. It is less than a 30 second walk to the water's edge and a promenade of several charming cafes and restaurants. The simple room with a queen bed and sink (in room) cost us about US$75/night. The restrooms were down the hall were very clean. The... More
