Happened upon this place by chance after all the other hostels were booked, but in retrospect we are very glad they were! This place just opened and must be the coolest place to stay cheaply in this gem of a town. It's run by the super-affable Mrs Zver and is part of the adjacent jazz club run by her son, where local creative types refresh down beer to the sound of Jazz tunes. The Pub functions as the hostel's cafe, perfect for breakfast or a drink when you get back after a day out -- our very first night we met a group of architecture students who ended up taking us to this awesome art-village of alternative clubs a little outside the center called Metelkova. We asked Mrs Zver where to eat and she suggested a great local Slovenian restaurant, which we loved so much we kept returning to it for the rest of our three-day stay. Being brand new, the rooms are spotless and very nicely furnished. I mean, the place is picture perfect. And Mrs Zver is such a sweetheart -- incredibly helpful. They provided towels, and a huge locker next to our beds to leave our valuables. The location is actually perfect -- you're not on the main strip, but a few minutes walk down the willow-tree-lined river, which is lovely. We wish every city in central Europe would have a spot like this to stay at -- it would make the trip all the more memorable.
