Hostel Azur
Reviewed 24 May 2012

The owner Marko picked us up at the train station, which was really nice. The hostel is a bit out of the way, but he gives you a bus card that you can 'top up' to get around. As we were only staying for a day, he dropped us back into the city centre on his way to the train station to pick someone else up.

The hostel itself is set up above a restaurant (food smelt amazing but didn't have the chance to eat there) and is quite dingy when you step in the door. Free internet is provided from a computer beside the door, but there are no lights in the hallway, so if you plan on using skype/webcam at night, don't bother, the other person won't be able to see you!

We stayed in a mixed 10 bed dorm - the idea scared me, but it turned out that only two other girls and one guy were staying at the same time. Two bathrooms were avaliable, with nice showers and plenty of space. The dorm had bunk beds, with doubles on the bottom if you so wished.

Ljubljana itself was gorgeous, I only wished we had spent more time here!

The next morning we had a very early train (along with our other dorm-mates) and we were provided with a lovely breakfast to go! This did delay us slightly, but our train was delayed anyway. It had youghurt, pastry, apply, cheeses, orange juice and water - everything you would expect to find in a continental breakfast. It wasn't fresh, but having starved for most of our trip, we were more then happy!

Had a lovely short trip, and would probably stay again, but maybe try and find accomodation closer to the centre. All the same, well worth it for the money!

The owner picked us up from the train station which was a nice touch and pretty handy as we had a fair amount of luggage. The hostel could have been cleaner though, wasn't filthy but not as clean as I would have liked. The breakfast could have been better too. You pretty much get what you pay for here, though the owners do go out of their way to make you feel welcome and that's something. Would recommend it with some improvements to the hostel itself.

When we arrived at the train station, we made a phonecall to Marco and they picked us up. Really nice service!
Room was OK. Three beds, two tables, three chairs and a closet. Big enough kitchen and bathroom were chared with one other couple. You do the dishes yourself, but dinner service in the closet was not all that clean.
Breakfast is OK but minimal. You get a bag with two sandwiches, marmelade, a drink, yoghurt and one piece of fruit.
City is a 30 minutes walk.
Interesting free tours in Ljubljana!
Restaurant just next to the hostel, but not for late night drink, becauwe they close at 22:00 pm.

The owner was incredibly helpful, picked everyone up from the train station and gave good advice on activities and sights. Great place to meet people, good kitchen facilities. Quite far from the city centre but it was a nice walk. Friendly, clean hostel.

the Hostel is about 30 minuts far of the center of Ljubljana (walk), Marco comes to the bus or train station to pick up you to the hostel, and gives some informations about the city, depending of your interests (clubs, musik, visits, beautiful places...).
12 or 13€ the night per person.
there isn't so much place in the 2 rooms (9 or 11 beds), but you can cook yourself, the bathrooms are clean and Marco is so friendly !

I booked this hostel on-line because apparently it was full everywhere else... and later I understood why!!! This is basically a student house that he set up with ikea furniture an the 3 rooms (of different sizes from 2 to 6 people) share just 1 bathroom!!! I couldn't believe it!! The house is dirty, the bathroom not even to mention!!! avoid, avoid, avoid!!!
