As a solo traveler, I like to meet people at hostels but I did not find Bledec Youth Hostel to be one were this was possible. Many of the guests there were young teenagers on a school trip and there wasn’t a big common room to socialize in. Also, there was no self-service kitchen, so if you wanted food at the hostel, it had to be from the run kitchen.
When I checked in, there was a problem with my room so I couldn’t go up to my room. I also couldn’t leave my bag in a safe place, either when checking in or checking out. The bag was just left in the small common room where anybody could access it. Room issue was sorted out eventually but the staff were not particularly forthcoming with information, nor friendly. The staff had an issue that I did not want to leave my passport with them for several hours whilst I went out and they checked me in. I will never leave my passport unattended at a hostel – especially at one that treated security in such a lax fashion!
Location was fine but there was quite a bit of noise both in the evening and in the morning with kids on motorbikes in the car park.
Room was fine, with a good bathroom and a comfortable bed. Overall, it was ok, but I have had much better hostels at a much cheaper price.
