This is one of the cleanest and best hostels I've ever stayed in. It's a beautiful house in a very quiet, picturesque village which is about a 35 minute walk from Lake Bohinj. The dorm rooms are spacious, light and airy and the one we were in had a balcony with a fantastic view of the village and the mountains. The owner is super-friendly and informative about the local area and there's a really good, simple breakfast every morning of fresh bread, jam and cereals. We used the hostel for our first and last nights of a walk to the summit of Triglav and it's perfect for this as the routes into the mountains start from just down the road. The owner was very happy to look after some of our baggage while we were in the mountains, another bonus. In addition to the dorm rooms, the hostel has a private double room. The only way I think this place could be better is if they hired out bikes - the hostel is right on a cycle trail but it's too bad that you have to trek all the way to the lake to get your hands on a bike. Anyway, this is a real gem of a hostel in what I think is one of the most beautiful areas of Europe. And if you stay here on a summer Thursday the suckling pig at the Rupa restaurant (about a 20 minute walk away) is well worth making a reservation for!
