Hostelz.com's Review

Jazz Hostel & Apartments is run by a husband and wife team who really want guests to have a great stay. They are on hand throughout the day to assist guests and they can offer a huge amount of information on Bled and the surrounding area. If you're feeling adventurous, they can arrange cycling, hiking, canyoning, and rafting excursions in Triglav National Park to help you get the most out of your time in Slovenia.

The Location

Jazz Hostel is located on the edge of the town but, as Bled is small, everything is within easy reach on foot. From the bus stop, walk toward the castle for five minutes as if you're heading out of town and you'll end up close to the hostel. Jazz is set back a bit from the road, which means traffic noise isn't a problem at night. There's a small but well-stocked supermarket nearby, which is useful if you intend to make use of the hostel's kitchen.

Rooms and Bathrooms

We had a four-bed dorm with two sets of bunk beds. Although not the most spacious dorm room we've come across, it has everything guests need -- comfy beds, reading lights, plenty of power sockets, and large gym-style lockers. Also, the rooms are immaculately clean. There are three showers (nice and hot and just as clean as the rooms) and two toilets for the dorm rooms to share. This proved to be adequate during our stay although the hostel wasn't full. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hostel and a PC can also be used for free.

Common Spaces

The kitchen is well equipped with all the utensils you'll need to create a gourmet meal as well as seating and a TV. Next door, the small jazz-themed bar is a relaxing place to while away some time and partake in some people watching from the outdoor seats and is a friendly meeting point for locals too.

Summary

Jazz Hostel attracts people who want a a comfortable stay in a beautiful location. It's not the craziest of hostels, but everything works as it should and the owners go to great lengths to ensure guests have a great stay. We recommend it.
