This hostel was quite nice, good facilities (kitchen), clean rooms and bathroom but it had an odd vibe. It is not a backpacker hostel for sure, it is a youth hostel, with hundreds of kids running around, with no care in the mornings that others might be sleeping. Not a problem if you are an early riser but the kitchen is all glass and the kids all stare as the go up and down the stairs. Slightly unnerving. It does however have the cheapest washing of any hostel were have found (1 euro for washing and drying). Stay here if you just need a night in Postojna.

Nice youth hostel, nice private rooms, big parking. I enjoyed resting in a lobby on nice pufas. Located in a Postojna center just 5 minutes to nearest shops and bars. to Postojan Cave by walk is less than 2km (so ap. 20 minutes).
The stuff is very helpfull.

Youth Hostel Proteus divides it's resources between being a school for forestry/woodworking and a youth hostel.
Situated very close to the centre of Postojna, (10 minute walk, 40 minute walk to the caves) but surrounded by woodland it's setting is quite pleasant and tranquil.
We arrived in August and so the place was very quiet and incredibly empty for such a big hostel, which although slightly eerie was not necessarily bad. This was probably more a symptom of Postojna itself rather than the hostel. Postojna is small and subdued, i think probably most travelers choose to commute there from Ljubjlana as it is only an hour or so away by bus. Although there was a Gypsy festival due to start the day after we left, it may well have been the calm before the storm!
Hostel has all amenities requireded including internet, it is affordable for the budget traveller and the staff are very helpful, they are fluent in English and happy to offer advice and recomendations.
The hostel is decorated in the colours of orange and brown abundantly. There are good sports facilities and a restaurant next door. Special views of the forests and mountains nearby.
