09 July 2014 David would recommend this property

Liked: Brilliant atmosphere, brilliant staff

Disliked: Slightly odd layout. Kitchen downstairs, but you had to go outside to get there, then on the first floor a dorm and a private 4 bed (cramped but decent enough) and the showers, 2nd floor 2 more dorms and the toilets. Doors left open a lot. We had no problems with security, but it could be an issue. Remember to lock safety deposit boxes because of this

Liked: We had originally booked 2 nights from the 31st, but had to arrive and leave a day earlier. On checking online, no rooms were available, but we still called up the hostel. They changed our dates without any hassle and without charging extra! Also, we reached around 9PM and there was still someone waiting for us, even though there is no reception (yet). We were showed around, all possible details mentioned, and he was really very helpful. We were also given a band that gives a 10% discount in some restaurants. The second day, we were taken to Vintgar Gorge by Klemen, totally free. He would have also taken us to a viewpoint, but had to cancel as it was raining. Instead he took interested guests up to the castle. The location is very good, 150 meters from the Bled bus stop, and easily walk-able to the castle or the lake. There are lots of places to eat around nearby, and there is a place with 1.35 euros for cheese toast nearby (mentioned at the hostel). There is a kitchen and free Wifi, and lots pf places to hang around. Just that some of the advertised places (Fast food), do not give a 10% discount even on showing the band. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay, will definitely recommend!

Disliked: This is a new hostel, so not many people know it by name. However, this is managed by the same people as the Castle hostel, and is right next to it. There are 4 showers on the ground floor, and 4 toilets on the first floor for the whole building. I wonder if this will be a problem during peak season?

Liked: The staff were fantastic and extremly helpful. An English girl was there most of the time we stayed and pointed us to some great restaurants, gave us directions to some out-of-the-way places, and even made me tea after I came in out of the snow. The location of it is close to the bus stop in Bled, right across from a nice grocery store, and a short walk from the lake/castle. Their common room was great, the wifi was solid, etc.

Disliked: The property wasn't especially clean. There was no hot water in the showers.

Liked: When we arrived the guy in charge was SO helpful, he gave us wristbands which allowed us to get local discounts and he told us which were the best places for our budget. The hostel also provides a free daily trip up to the amazing Vintgar Gorge (only 3euro entry there) and then they take you on a hike to see the view point of the lake and take pictures for you. The hostel was clean and friendly and great!

Disliked: The only problem is that the directions to the hostel given on HostelBookers was wrong, so when we got there there were lots of backpackers, ourselves included, wandering around looking for the right hostel!

Liked: Fantastic hostel. Not huge so you mingle with other guests more than you do at the bigger hostels. Fairly new property so facilities are really good. Laundry is FREE but they don't supply laundry powder. Towels also free. Free tour to Vintgar Gorge and a view point over the lake in exchange for a Facebook "Like" which is absolutely worth it and recommended. Klemen and other staff really nice and helpful.

Disliked: I made sure I was on a bottom bunk so it wasn't a problem for me but the bunks don't have ladders which can make getting to the top bunk a bit tricky. Also, there are always people around to ask but there is no signage for the hostel and reception is in a house across the road. No handwash in toilets.

Liked: Great location for Bled centre and the lake itself. New hostel with comfortable beds and nice bathrooms. Staff accommodating for needs such as left luggage, lockers, information

Disliked: WC lacking soap and hand drying Kitchen a bit small when filled with guests! BUT I understand they are currently building some outdoor furniture which will really open up the space and be a great spot to chill in.

Liked: Hostel had an awesome vibe with friendly laid back ppl all the time. The kitchen was massive and a great place to meet other travellers. Owners were really helpful and they even take the trouble to pick up/drop you off at the station if you need. They also organised free tours to the gorge which was awesome.

Disliked: Only 2 lockers available in the 12 bed dorm (there are plenty of cupboards but not lockers)
