“Great hostel in Bled”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

Lovely brand new hostel (July 2013), with good kitchen facilities although it can get a little crowded. The hostel was very social with a good backpacker vibe.Friendly staff, but organisation was a bit chaotic with no reception area and staff between this hostel and another around the corner. Good location, not too far from the lake and the town with a supermarket on its doorstep.

The hostel is perfect location, 5 minutes away from the lake and everything you could need! 10 seconds away from the nearest supermarket! As soon as we arrived the staff couldn't do more for us, you get maps, advice, trips and much more! The hostel itself is very very nice! Well decorated and the amenities are first rate. Everyone was really friendly and theres a great vibe aroun the hostel. For the price, it's an absolute bargain. Definately returning!!

I was really pleased by this hostel and his owner, Klemen.
The hostel is close to the main bus station and next to a small supermarket, there's a really well equipped kitchen with television where you can cook and meet all the people from the hostel.
All the hostel is cleaned everyday, the beds are really comfortable with a duvet, and all the decorations is made in black and white with beautiful pictures of bled everywhere took by Klemen. It's really modern and clean.
There is no reception so we ring the bell and Klemen came right away to help us. He's from the region and can give you any advices you need.
He 's totally dedicated to his business, he renovate the castle hostel next to this one, show us the work he's doing, in the same time he help the people who's coming at the hostel and still got time for us to bring us to the Vintgar gorges for free and after we visited he brought us to the best landscape point for the view of the lake.
The hostel works with a good organization to made tours in the triglav, paragliding...
People are drinking at night in the kitchen of the hostel, it's cheaper then bars and with friendly ambiance, and Klemen even brought beers for everyone.
I would recommend not only this hostel but his owner also who will made you have the best stay in Bled.

Pros: great laidback atmosphere
Easy to meet other travellers (either in the kitchen or on the grass outside)
New kitchen with all utensils necessary (no microwave though!)
Great location - short walk to bus station and lake and opposite supermarket
Super Friendly approachable owner/workers who are locals so know all the things to do and they organise free tours to the gorge & up to a really nice viewpoint

Cons: only 2 lockers in the 12 bed dorm (but plenty of cupboard space)
It was a little hot in the rooms at night on the 30+degree days with no ac

Things to note: the place is a little hard to find coz there is no obvious signage and there are 2 entrances.. The kitchen at the back road and computer lobby area on the front road. If you follow the directions as per the website it IS the white building that looks like an apartment even if you don't think it is. There is a picture of an ace of spades on the translucent door. There Is NO reception area so RING THE DOORBELL at the front and someone will come out to help you.

There is no common room but everyone hangs in either the kitchen or best of all on the grass lawn just chilling out the front :)

I stayed extra days coz Bled is beautiful and i loved the hostel. The kitchen is so nice to use that i didn't even eat out so saved heaps of money coz it was more fun to cook and meet other people. The free transfer to the gorge was great and you really do end up saving paying the €20 that other companies charge just for the transfer

This hostel is really one of the nicest that I've ever stayed in. I think it has recently been re-done because all of the facilities are very modern and clean. Can't fault the hostel at all and the owner, Klemen was very welcoming and helpful - he even drove us to the train station! Overall a really great hostel and in a central location in Bled.

travelling at lake bled with almost no command of slovenian was still really amazing because the guys at ace of spades were really helpful and knew what backpackers like us really wanted. it was really cool and we managed to tour around the gorge and the national park so that was really fulfilling. really good value and they're very amazing people.

Facilities are great, clean bedroom, hot showers, and big kitchen. Loved my time there, guys who ran it created a cool atmosphere which makes it easy for solo travelers to meet new people and also groups to do some cool activities.
