Superb hostel for families. Excelant owners. We stayed only for a night but could stay here for a week if we had time. Nice, big and clean rooms. If you want to cook something you can probably make an owen roast. Hostel and its ameties are clean. As for location of the hostel, you are in rural area and you can just relax and you can turn everything off (head and phone). We shall return.

On the positive side, we've liked the price, quiet location, well equipped kitchen and soft beds. On the negative side: property is difficult to find and needs additional instructions from the owner; the address indicated in the booking confirmation makes you thinking it's located in Črni Kal village in Zazid street, while in fact it's located in Zazid village. Once you reach Zazid, there are signs pointing to the property, although they could be more visible - so, try to arrive before dark if possible. Narrow roads. The rooms on the first floor are reached via narrow, spiral stairs, so beware if you have got bulky luggage. Choose this property if interested in trekking or climbing in the vicinity; otherwise, look elsewhere if you need just a budget stop over on a longer trip.

Response from Dusan B, Owner at Hostel Xaxid
Responded Nov 24, 2017
Thank you for your review. As I remeber you, you've had non updated GPS and needed some help to reach us in the late hours, when reception was almost closed. You've spend here just one night and in the morning you've left. You were here for the first time. These kind of guests are not appreciated on the Slovenian coast (they usually don't except guests for one night) and if they do the prices are at least 30 % higher if not 50%. In summer time we offer accommodation also for one night. I think it's good that people have option for low budget overnight. You had to drive 10 min more than you thaught (it's 10 km to Črni Kal) and you were quite displeased. Younger people usually don't have a problem to reach a hostel, they check the road on google maps, they find our location without a problem. And we also send extra details to those that are coming for the first time. Zazid is like Italian Toscany or French Provance...the time here just stops! And there are now quite many people who think that way and they return back each year for long holidays.

I visited xaxid mainly because my travels are centered around big city's, here you get to know the real locals, in a real village. They made me feel like part of the family. There direction on how to get there by bus were spot on. And the people at the bus stop where lovely making sure I was on the right bus. So take a change of pace and visit.

Sometimes you need a beak also from travelling into the big cities. To relax, take a walk, take a big breath of pure air and listen to birds singing...

I've been here several times during the climbing season, and I've never been disappointed. The hostel is really nice, and well-equipped (you got everything for cooking, stove, cutlery, grill) but the biggest pro is Dusan the owner, who always comes and help you whatever you need, and who is a really welcoming host.
