Stayed here for 2 nights with friends and chose hostel based on a stay 2-3 years ago when the hostel had just opened which had been brilliant.
Bled itself has lots of hostels, and there isn't a lot between them, but if location is important to you, then this is a great one, situated 5-10 minutes from the bus station (up a hill), and 15 minutes from the lake. There a few good pizzerias and restaurants very close by, and supermarket within throwing distance of the hostel.
Traveller's Haven has a good, welcoming set-up, a great common kitchen and living area, and free bike hire. The staff are fantastic, and go out of their way to help you.
The rooms are ok - not the best when compared to other hostels, but for Bled are definitely in the top half! The bunk beds are a bit creaky, but comfy enough, and each one has its own light and power point. There are no lockers for bags, although each room locks and there are safes in the rooms. We had some problems with these, which were rectified as soon as we asked. When full, the room can get pretty warm as the ventilation isn't great unless you plan ahead and have the window open all day.
Bathroom is one shared one, which doesn't seem to get as busy as you'd imagine from a headcount of guests. A common complaint is that the shower curtains don't allow you much scope for privacy if you're a bit shy, but its workable - and being able to have a hot shower in a clean bathroom at any time, is at least for me, a more important concern.
Would stay here again.
