Traveller's Haven



Hostelz.com's Review

The Location

Half-hidden in the residential side of Bled, Traveller's Haven offers down-to-earth hospitality and respite from local tourism. The hostel is within walking distance to bars, restaurants, and St. Martin's Church at the base of Bled Castle. The bus station is five hundred metres away from the hostel -- walk up the hill on the left-hand side and turn left when you see Mercator supermarket on the opposite side. Reception is separate from the main building and parking is available. Pick-ups can be arranged by phone or email.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorms and private room are kitted out with quality linens, comfortable mattresses, ample pillows, thick duvets, and towels. The only rule is that you must make your own bed. There are safety deposit boxes and lockable doors in every room. Luggage can be left at reception if required. There are enough clean showers in the bathroom to keep the morning queues nice and short. Hot water is always available and the shower pressure is excellent. While there are hooks only large enough to hang towels, there are no lack of shelves to keep your gear dry.

Common Spaces

There is a spacious common area with flat-screen television, a DVD player with a selection of movie titles, and a cushy lounge to relax with new friends. Stacks of brochures on Bled and activities are scattered around the vicinity. There is one computer terminal with a speedy internet but no Wi-Fi. Connecting to the common room is a small outdoor terrace overlooking the residential district and a sliver of Lake Bled. The kitchen is well-equipped with shiny pots and pans, cutlery, stacks of plates, bowls, and mugs. Breakfast is not included. There is a dishwashing machine to do the dirty job, so hand washing dishes is not permitted. This creates a happy and social time for the guests to partake in drinking, chilling, and free laundry.


As if the free laundry and drying isn't enough, the staff at Traveler's Haven know how to make everyone's stay a comfortable and enjoyable one. They offer plenty of advice on how to make use of your time in Bled, whether it is a summer or winter retreat. This hostel is a home away from home.

Go there!
Traveller's haven is a a really good hostel! The location is really good! Right across the street from a supermarket, few minutes walking from the bus station and the lake. The staff was very help full and nice -- the woman at the reception pulled out a map when we got there and explained to us everything about the place (what we need to see). Showers were clean and good. Hot water all the time. Kitchen was well equipped. Rooms were good and comfy. Note that there is no lockers (there are safes).

The best hostel I've ever been
By saying this is the best hostel I've ever been, I mean the staff are really helpful, the location is just perfect, the facilities are great and free, the hostel is cosy, spotless, new. Just perfect.
this hostel is great. there is everything that you could want for a hostel. friendly staff (offered a free upgrade!), a full kitchen (with oven), common area, lots of dvds, book exchange, perfect location, free internet, free laundry, staff made sure the place was extremely clean almost to the point of annoying. they should have a front door that locks automatically and they could use some hooks or counters in the bathroom, but other than that this is a well maintained and cared for hostel. if you stay anywhere in bled, stay here.
Good, except for one thing.
I recently stayed in this hostel. Excellent facilities and location. The unfortunate thing is that they close the TV room/kitchen at 10 p.m., and do not reopen it until 8 a.m. There is nowhere to go but to your room once they close the TV room. It feels like you are being treated like a child.
