“great prize and location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

Cool, small hostel on a great location and for a great prize. We had a double room, with shared bathroom what is the only minus. But the bathrooms are clean. Another minus is a wooden floor, so you hear each person walking through the house. The stuff is nice and the surrounding is great. Central location, quite, bur with more then enough places to go out!

Great hostel to use as a stop gap... Great location and very clean.

Do not see the staff much but they are very helpful... Very glad I booked the hostel as it is located very close to town and a nice walk down the river in to town.

Only point is the bar closed very early but there is one located next door so wasn't a problem!

What a beautiful location, we drove here from Italy. Easy to park outside the hostel for 40cents per hour and free from 5pm- 7am. We stayed in the 8 bed dorm and the beds were very comfortable with high beams. Watch out when choosing a bed by the window as I did bump my head in the morning. We stayed on a Tuesday night and the pub downstairs did have quite loud music. I liked listening to the music while going to sleep, quite soothing really. Of course I would recommend you bring earplugs. Overall a lovely quaint town in Slovenia.

Stayed in this hostel on holiday with my brother for 3 nights. The reception staff were always very helpful and enthusiastic - happy to recommend us good restaurants and bars in the city and the best day trips around Slovenia. The place was very clean and tidy, and the jazz-theme made it cosy and charming where it might otherwise be quite simple. A lovely little garden, a great bar outside and the fact that it was also cheap made it an absolutely fantastic stay! I would definitely come back.

I stayed in this hostel with a group of lads earlier this year, Ljubljana is not the first place you would this of for a lads holiday and we did get a lot of strange looks from the locals but oh well! The Sax Hostel is a great place to stay, clean and has everything you need! including a bar downstairs which is not massively expensive! if your going i recommend Metelkova for a night out! Very different but I very good.

Room Tip: The upstairs room has the best beds!

this hostel is very nice but probably not for you if your on a budget. there's a bar downstairs which somewhat compensates for the lack of a common room. the decor is clever and interesting. the rooms were clean and tidy. only one shower for the whole of a large dorm. the ceilings are a tad low if your tall so some ducking is necessary in places. it seems to be more of a place to crash rather than somewhere with an atmosphere of its own. Ljubljana itself is a great place, i would recommend getting the bus out to the stunning lake bled.
