“Castle Hostel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

I am studying in Salzburg for the year and have traveled around a lot this year, and this hostel was the best I have stayed in yet! It's very clean, and the people who work there are extremely kind and helpful. It's a great location and has a great atmosphere, and Lake Bled is beautiful!

Visited Bled for five days and could not have wished for a better place to stay. Excellent facilities and the most amazing and friendly staff you could ask for. I seriously cannot recommend this place enough!

You can't get better service on better location. I got free trip to the beautiful gorge combined with the viewpoint hike what is cherry on a top of everything. Go there, stay there!!! Bled is amazing!

I had a great time at Castle Hostel, one of the best hostels I have stayed in. the staff are really friendly and welcoming, they go out of their way to make you feel at home and are always around to answer questions and help you out with anything, One of the guys gave me a free lift to a really great view point above the lake which was pretty awesome. the kitchen and common room is nice, very well stocked and plenty of space, it has everything you need and more. they also have a really lovely terrace with a view of the lake and the surrounding mountains. I stayed in the four bed dorm and it was warm, comfortable and had a power socket and reading light at each bed. the showers and toilets were completely spotless the entire time I was here and they seemed to keep the hostel to a really good standard. I didn't want to leave, I will definitely be back next year.

Room Tip: ask about their offers, if you stay 3 nights you get a free night. the four bed dorm was great.

I stayed at this hostel way back in February of 2013. I am not the fastest at writing these reviews!
I stayed 3 nights. It was an excellant stay. Klemen was an excellant host and helped by running me to the railway station on the day i left.
I highly recommend this as a place to stay.
Klemen; apologies for delay in reviewing!

We really enjoyed our stay at Castle Hostel, the staff were amazing, and went out of their way to make our stay awesome, taking us on trips to the gorge, and even up into the mountains for a snowball fight.

My only criticism was that the bathrooms were often quite dirty and smelt of mould, and the ladders on the bunks stick out, which reduces the space in the small rooms quite significantly.

Overall a nice hostel to stay in, felt like home.
