No nos fue comodo, quisimos utilizar la cocina pero solo habia un fregadero y algo de vajilla no habia nada para calentar y estaba bastante sucio. No habia nigun lugar comodo para comer. habia muy pocos baños y algo sucios. Lo mejor la situación del albergue en el centro del pueblo, pero sin aparcamiento para coche y en la zona es imposible encontrar sitio.

Very very nice hostel, clean and beautiful, very well placed in Koper, with all the comfort you can expect (linens, personal locker, modern and well-equiped bathrooms) ; I warmly recommand it ;)

The staff were super friendly and happy to give great advice on how best to experience Slovenia. Koper is a central location, just a quick drive away from Croatia, Italy or the other Slovenian costal towns. The rooms and beds are standard hostel standards, but the staff and location make it a great pace to stay!

It is in a very nice place, though a bit hard to get there from the train or bus station with all your bags on foot.. But it is a a scenic environment, loved the place! Mediterranean feeling all over,good place to rest in the night, too.
