I was there during an off season because of an event happening and MC Idrija, which is coincidentally located in the rooms beneath the Hostel.To save money for heating I was upgraded from an 8-bed room, which was my reservation, to a 2-bed room, free of charge. It's nice, the only problem is getting to it. If my friend wasn't a local who drove me there, I'd probably have trouble finding it.

Die Jugendherberge ist in einem älteren Gebäude untergebracht mit verteilt angeordneten Sanitärräumen, die ihr alter nicht leugnen können. Die Schlafräume waren sauber und gut eingerichtet. Die Lage ist auf einer Anhöhe mit einem Blick auf die Stadt. Frühstück wurde nicht angeboten.

Insgesamt positiver Eindruck. Wünschenswert wäre ein Aufenthaltsraum mit Sitzmöglichkeiten, evtl. Sofa.
