This place was really cool. Not the easiest to find, purely because there's several hostels in the area, but the lovely taxi driver helped us find it and even rang them up when it looked closed!

The guys who worked there were super friendly and really helpful, and genuinely seemed interested in helping you have a good holiday.

The room, showers and toilets were all clean and tidy. We also loved the fact that there was a shared fridge where you could leave your stuff for other guests if you were leaving.

Also the terrace has a gorgeous view, and the hostel is a 5 minute walk to the gorgeous lake!

Don't be put off by the dilapidated look of the building or the stairs when you arrive. This is a lovely hostel.

We were greeted by friendly, enthusiastic staff who were always happy to answer any questions.

Our room was comfortable, if a little cramped. We had a table which came in handy. The lockers were segregated for clothes and accessories, which was nice.

Having a nice shower was no problem. Water was always hot, and there was always a clean shower free every morning.

Kitchen was always clean, cool little flashing tap too. Getting in and out of the building was no problem. The weather was mostly terrible but the staff offered us a free tour when the weather became nice again.

Although the entrance was quite "interesting" the hostel was AMAZING!
Miha, the owner, was one of the most friendly guys we've ever met! He even helped us putting our mountainbikes on the balcony!
And although the hostel is not entirely finished - actually I don't know exactly what is missing - as Miha told us, it war quite perfect.
best points from us!!!

We loved Bled, the hostel and the hostel staff. We've been travelling for four months now and this place is easily one if the best. For some specifics: big, well stocked, clean kitchen, good wifi, clean rooms, lovely common area and deck and the perfect atmosphere for relaxing and getting to know all the other guests. The staff were great guys and went out of there way to get to know and look after the needs of every person there.

Overall a brilliant hostel for backpackers, whether you're looking for a place to relax, or to socialise. The owner was really friendly and helpful, as were all of the other staff I met, and the facilities are great (including a well fitted kitchen, complete with novelty tap!) Also, they have a huge balcony that catches the sun all day. Value for money was great with each night costing around 10/11 Euros a night.

Can't recommend this place enough!

Very nice and clean place to stay in. I hardly recommend it. Not in the center but bled is a small city so no need to be at down town.

It was pleasure to take a rest there. Very clean, new renovated and furnished.
Perfect location, close to lake, a lot of cafes and restaurants arround, supermarket across the street.
Beautifull place to visit again.
