Me and some friends booked here for the start of our trip around Central Europe. It's a lovely, friendly hostel that I certainly recommend. The sheets are clean. Shower room is good. In fact it was spotless clean. The lady on reception was friendly and helpful. The bar in front was nice but was only open one night whilst we... More

We stayed just one night, but it was really good. As hostel should be. Good bed with good soft blanket and pillow, good shower and toilet, tea and coffee, nice art, nice stuff, good position. And it is quiet!

Granted we haven't been to other hostels in Ljubljana but this one doesn't stand a chance as we don't even think about going elsewhere and we have been going there two years in a row so it's safe to say that we will be regulars haha Cosy and friendly, quiet and chill, love the bar downstairs...

When a hostel staff is like a family, it creates a very welcoming atmosphere for guests. The Sax hostel and adjoining pub do exactly this, making my stay here worth telling the world. Besides the awesome staff, the beds and showers were a delight. I will return to this hostel without hesitation. Thanks sexy Sax crew

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sax Hostel is Ljubljana's newest hostel, housed under the roof of the city's legendary jazz pub, Sax Pub. We are ideally located along the river running through the city's lively old center, where music lovers of all ages and walks of life have gathered for 25 years. Over the bustling terrace of Sax Pub, behind the graffiti-clad facade, are immaculately renovated doubles and dorm rooms, named after blues and jazz greats. To mix with Ljubljana's hip crowd, you need only to descend the stairs and take in the music of the pub, which on Thursdays is live. All rooms are equipped with power-outlets, reading lights, and free wi-fi. Every guest is provided with a personal locker for luggage and valuables. A fleet of bikes, ideal for exploration of the city, can be rented cheaply. Towels and linens are provided. Wheelchair accessible. ... more   less
