amazing design, colourful and fresh. i just loved the yellow building blocks and beanbags in the lobby. the staff were really friendly to us, even though we arrived late in the night. the room was clean and because of the new furniture the smell of fresh wood was also really welcoming. maybe it would be good if you guys had an evening buffet as well, not just breakfast until noon.

We loved to stay there, the environment and the building, inside and out, are crazy good. Nevertheless, there was not that much kitchen space for all the guests that might use it and the breakfast was not included. If you want to go to the postojna caves, this hostel has a great location for you to go there on foot.
