Liked: The hostel is in a great location, only a 5 minute walk for the lake and town/bars. The rooms were spacious and clean and facilities there were great also. Perhaps the best bit about the hostel were the people- the staff were amazing (thanks Mika!!) and the fellow travelers were so friendly and welcoming. The hostel staff did everything they could to help us- organising water canyoning tours, tours of the local area, booking a taxi for us leaving the hostel and giving us good advice on which were the best local bars! By far the best hostel that I've ever stayed in!

Disliked: There was nothing to dislike about this hostel!

Liked: The staff were very friendly and helpful (apart from messing us around with our washing but they did refund us). Bled is a stunning place and this hostel is situated well! Atmosphere is great and the staff join in with everyone making it great to do things in big groups.

Disliked: There wasn't loads of showers and toilets but enough to have no problems. We were promised our washing by Saturday afternoon and it was given to us after our night out on Saturday... wet! However we were apologised to and given a refund.

Liked: Great location, hostel was clean and they offer a free guide/tour which was brilliant. The guy who took us up to the viewpoint was great, he must have to do that most days and he was so nice and took loads of photos for us. All the staff were really friendly, could have stayed longer if had time!

Disliked: Nothing bad! Although if you do not want to drink much on your travels the daily evening drinking and pub crawl may not be for you... Saying this I wasn't there for the booze and it didn't put me off because everyone was so nice :)

Liked: Miha is a brilliant host and the atmosphere in the hostel is super friendly. Really clean and well kept. Stayed in a spacious four bed dorm with secure lockers, lots of plugs and reading lights, desk etc. The free trip to the gorge and viewpoint are a great bonus. The wristband they give you also offers good discounts on restaurants and boat hire.

Disliked: Wifi was a bit unrealiable.

Liked: Very clean; individual showers were really good (lots of room and always hot water); the staff give a great orientation and also run "tours" (more of a shuttle service) to Vintgar Gorge and a lookout point for free every day (well worth doing); large lockers; good beds (each bed has an individual reading light, powerpoint and switch for the main light).

Disliked: The instructions for getting there were wrong, I think they might be for the partner Hostel Ace of Spades. Once you see the pub 1004 - the Hostel is right beside it (there is a small sign on the door); spiral staircase is a bit hard with large bags, but staff are happy to carry them up for you.

Liked: Out welcome from the host was so wonderful. We felt welcome and informed but it wasn't over the top. The other owner of the hostel was also great. The 6 bed dorm is small but beds are comfortable. There's. Great outdoor terrace. Only negative is wifi didn't work and a new staf member was unable/seemed unconcerned when asked to help, and it was extremely hot in the shared space still by 12pm at night. There isn't anywhere else to go, so it's a little hard. I would highly recommend the hostel based on the two owners however!

Disliked: No aircon or cooling, not enough space in shared room for a full hostel and one new unhelpful staff member
