    The staff are so friendly and helpful. The location is close to the centre, only 10 minutes of walk. So, a great place to stay while discovering Ljubljana!

    As the hostel was adjacent to the bar, the noise coming from the bar all night was disturbing for us. Also, the shared bathroom and toilets were not cleaned daily as I could easily find proof.

    Cool design, clean, good music, friendly staff, good location.

    The sink in the bathroom was too small and without warm water. No kitchen.

    Good single beds with reading lights, plugs etc. Clean showers&toilets, nice atmosphere &good location!

    Bar downstairs can be noisy, not the best place for early sleepers.

    Location, design, comfortable!

    The lady who worked there, i dont know her name, but she was also cleaning the rooms and doing laundry too. Actually in the morning of my leave, she showed up in the dorm room and asked me if im gonna stay or leave cuz it was check out time, since people were still sleeping, so i just told her by sign language that im gonna leave. After half an hour i went down to the reception to leave the keys and checkout, i asked her if its possible to leave my backpack at the reception for couple hours! But u know what! She ignored me! And when i asked again she said in an angry way that if anything happened to my backpack then they wont care its not their responsibility! This is for the first time happened to me in a hostel!! When i asked her why she is acting like that? Did i do anything wrong? She said because i replayed in sign language back in the dorm room!!! She took this issue personally!! I told her that people were sleeping and didnt want to wake them up! But she said this is dorm and nobody care about noises!! I took my backpack and felt annoyed by her acting! I even didnt want to write about this incidence but since she ruined my day with her ignorant act then i had to write it down!
