Sax hostel is an easy walking distance to the centre of Ljubljana. The wifi was a bit slow at times, but we never had any real problems. The beds were very comfortable but a bit freaky if people moved around. The bathroom had a fantastic shower. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and more than happy to help with...

This hostel is only a 5 minute walk from the old center of Ljubljana. We had a warm welcome at the hostel. The staff was very kind and helpful. Unfortunately we only stayed for one night. But we are definitely coming back.

Private room and dorms are raw, but fine, beside the BED BUGS EVERYWHERE. Service is fine, lady wakes you up pretty straight forward wen it is time to clean the rooms. Nothing is very sound proof in the hostel. The worst still being the bugs.

Stayed here for two nights in mixed dorm room. Overall the facilities were good, however one main issue I had was that there was no fridge/common room area. The Sax pub at the front is a great place to chill out, meet other travellers and mingle with some of the locals. The lady (forgot her name 😔) who operates the...

My first ever stay in a hostel, and I would definitely stay again! I was pleasantly surprised with the comfort of the beds, and the quality of the hostel overall. the staff were brilliant, and it was great having the bar just downstairs! The shared room didn't smell wonderful, but after a spritz of air freshener it was not a...

It's 5am. I am leaving in 2 hours. I cannot sleep. Every clock tick, I had to scratch myself. It's the worst bed bug encounter I've had. I manage to kill one bed bug in the first night, made the staff aware of the situation. I didn't want to write a bad review knowing the negative impact it might bring...

Quality hostel. Stayed in a private room which had x2 bunk beds. Nice facilities, showers great and it's brilliant how travellers leave their old toiletries behind like shower gel and toothpaste etc. I actually never used any of my own which was great! The lady on reception was great, very helpful and friendly. The guy who worked in the bar...

On our arrival, we were welcomed by a really pleasant lady - it was around 22:30 (later than we expected due to our train running behind schedule). The lady gave us recommendations of where to go to eat and best places to see and visit - she was so helpful! The hostel can also arrange for a gentleman called Matty...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sax Hostel is Ljubljana's newest hostel, housed under the roof of the city's legendary jazz pub, Sax Pub. We are ideally located along the river running through the city's lively old center, where music lovers of all ages and walks of life have gathered for 25 years. Over the bustling terrace of Sax Pub, behind the graffiti-clad facade, are immaculately renovated doubles and dorm rooms, named after blues and jazz greats. To mix with Ljubljana's hip crowd, you need only to descend the stairs and take in the music of the pub, which on Thursdays is live. All rooms are equipped with power-outlets, reading lights, and free wi-fi. Every guest is provided with a personal locker for luggage and valuables. A fleet of bikes, ideal for exploration of the city, can be rented cheaply. Towels and linens are provided. Wheelchair accessible. ... more   less
