The service is really good, the host is very kind. When it comes to location, it is not located in Bled, but Žirovnica (few kilometers from Lesce). Not a big deal if you travel with your own car. Hot water was not available at all times, only in the morning and evening.

This place is actually located in Selo. Nice pizza restaurant nextdoor, they serve pretty large portions and pizza's and are familiar with the concept of doggie bags: your pizza dinner may well serve as lunch for the next day! Nothing much to do there but it's not very far from Bled, so if you're by car this will not be... More

The hostel is pretty basic - there are no lockers and the bathrooms are in a pretty poor state. They smell, run out of loo roll, lack got water and don't have locks on the doors. The place could definitively do with a thorough clean. There are no kitchen facilities, however breakfast and hot drinks are provided every morning until... More

As you can read from the other reviews, the owner is great. Really helpful and he picked us up from our transfer and dropped us off back in the bled the following morning. It was good value and breakfast was included. It was basic but did the job for some young, broke travellers. Having a bar/pizzeria attached the hostel was... More

The owner is an absolute gem who is reliable about picking you up from your transport stop and getting you to and from the lake. The reason I love this hostel is that it's so easy to meet other travellers while on these free shuttle runs, and you get to see some beautiful countryside. I regret only staying one night,... More

My friend and I stayed at the hostel for 3 nights in August. Although it might not lie close to the lake, it is definetely worth going to! Milan was able to take by shuttle to the city centre and the lake, we were able to organise trips to go kayaking and canyoning, and the rooms were more than great!... More
