Jakelj Backpackers House
Ranked #77 of 93 Speciality Lodging in Bled
Reviewed 24 July 2012

This hostel is situated some 7km from lake Bled, which is good. Also the price was better than other places. The breakfast was ok and the stuff was quite helpful.
Yet our double room had quite short bed, my boyfriend had problem with his legs... Secondly, the linen on our bed looked like we were not the first using it... The hostel in general seemed to lack "womens presence". The bathroom was so so and noone cleaned anything during the whole week we stayed there. We had to ask for toilet paper ourself, for towels, and soup was not even available. :-) But we were only upset when the owner anounced us (at 10 in the evening after we got back from demanding trip) that he needed our room and that we had to move to another room because of some family that arrived! We had told to the owner how long we were supposed to stay so it was surprising and very incovenient. So after all little and bigger things we left one day earlier. I think for easy going backpackers its ok but later in Slovenia we found nicer places, that offer much better quality for the same price. The trick is to book nothing online but rather look for the offers while you drive. There are many B+B everywhere. So you can see it before you book it.

Stayed here in 2007 and it was really good then, I'm sure it is now! Lovely family run establishment with super clean rooms and really friendly and staff! An all round excellent hostel experience!

Great hostel, had a wicked time, met some wicked people, and did some wicked stuff! Bled is amazing.

Only warning about this hostel is that its 10 min drive from Bled, although they do daily drop off's and pick ups (including arrival pick ups). Worked fine for us, but might not for everyone.

Three course, home cooked meal every night for 6 euros each was superb every day, and litterally everyone there was saying how it was the bets hostel from their trip.

BIG RECCOMENDATION
