Liked: The staff were so friendly and helpful. We arrived after a 14 hour overnight journey and although we weren't supposed to check in until 1pm, the guy let us go up to our rooms at 9am to sleep and sort ourselves and come down to do all the "formalities" once we had had a sleep, really appreciated it!

Disliked: I didn't dislike anything about the property :)

Liked: When checking in the manager Greg offered me and my two friends a free shot of schnaps which was much appreciated (at least from my part). Greg is very friendly and tries his best of being helpful. When we stayed there were some renovations being made in the hostel/bar but we got a wee discount for the troubles. Also, upon check in you will be charged a tourist tax, but it's not very much roughly around twoo euros. The hostel is convinient located very close to Lake Bled and is nice and clean.

Disliked: The renovations were a bit chaotic but they tried their best in making our stay pleasant, which they succeeded in.

Liked: The price is right! The location could be worse, and the dorm room itself was nice and big.

Disliked: I checked in on a Sunday morning and the bathrooms were dirty - they were not cleaned until Monday afternoon, by that time there was no toilet paper. Maybe they have no cleaner over the weekend. Also no towels were available and no laundry facilities.

Liked: Not bad, clean enough if you're not too picky, decent location as Bled is a very small town.

Disliked: Bring ear-plugs if you want to sleep. Through the week not so bad but on the weekends the noise lasts until 6am. Good place for a party though if that's what you're looking for!
