“Great beds, lockers, good showers and excellent internet”
Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

The good:
-fast internet
-close to everything (castle, city centre, pub, kebab shop)
-really comfy, clean and non-squeaky beds
-lockers in the room
-shower and toilet in the room (6 bed room)
-staff are really nice and helpful

The not so good:
-no internet in the rooms

This is one of the better hostels I've stayed in anywhere in Europe. I'd definitely come back here again.

Stayed August 2013, traveled solo

Location perfect, situated near the Dragon bridge with a Spar supermarket adjacent, room had a fully operational air con which felt like a luxury item travelling and the wifi had good strength. Arrived late hours of the night to the hostel due to border police delaying the train, a list of how to get to the room and a friendly message was left on the front door of the reception. However, the interior of the hostel felt unfinshed with rooms resembling a construction site at times and the noice of buliding works at early hours of the morning were unbearable to sleep in.

Situated right by the river only a 5 minute stroll from the city centre, this hostel was ideally situated. The room we were given was spacious and bright and most importantly had excellent air conditioning. The bathrooms were both just across the hall and provided everything we needed. The staff were very helpful and even lent my girlfriend a towel for free when she realised she'd forgotten hers.

It is a place to go with your friends, if you plan just to go around and just sleep and take a shower in the hostel.

is not so bad, but the bathroom was a little sloppy, without maintenance, in general all structure.

The give us sheets, but you need to have your own towel.

They have wireless service.

Have a small kitchen in the room and also a table to eat. It is not bad in general.

Is soo close to the center of the city

Located just a few minutes away from the heart of Ljubljana on the river bank (next to Dragon bridge and market). Parking on the street, almost free for the night .Nice receptionist, very helpful.Our room was in the building next to the reception. Old building under renovation, hostel part at least. Room was mostly renovated (balcony not yet) with new beds. Bathroom just outside the room, clean.Silent aircon. Very convenient to discover all the main sights on foot day and night. Fresh food (clothes, shoes ...) sold on the market, many shops, cafes, restaurants, bars nearby.
Note : towels are not included (bedlinen yes), but the friendly receptionist arranged them in a few minutes.

This is hostel has very good location, on the river, very quiet but also just few steps from centre and all the bars and Presern square. The street behind the hostel is one of my favourites - Trubarjeva - nice bars, falafel place and street musicians. I slept there two times, first in a main building, in a private room (bathroom was outside) which was not bad, little bit too hot, but pleasant sleep. The next time we booked a dorm which was in an adjacent building, and even if the bathroom was in the room (sleeps 4-5) and with some kitchen facilities it looked a little bit dirty and worn away. It didn't look safe, like anyone from the street can enter. Some lack of atmosphere, not bad but there are nicer places.

Room Tip: better take a room in the main building

We arrived at this hostel at 11pm after travelling for 48 hours. We were exhausted and went straight to bed without looking around the room. In the morning, I found a bedbug in the bed. I also noticed that the sheets had old bloodstains on them - they were red sheets so I had to look very closely. There were also many small holes and tears in the sheets. I probably should have said something to the owners when we checked out, but we just wanted to get out of there.
