Penzion Bledec Youth Hostel Reviews

We are not used to Youth hostels anymore, as we normally book apartments for our family of 5, but for only 1 night we chose the Penzion Bledlec Youth Hostel and were astonished how big, neat, and clean the rooms were. We had three rooms for 5 people and the entrance was separate, so we were very private with our own bathroom. We hadn't expected this and are really happy. Breakfast was appropriate -- regarding the price even great and they had free parking lots right next door.

HI - Bled - Penzion Bledec Youth Hostel resembles a quaint version of the typical HI hostel -- immaculately clean, very quiet, and an older crowd. You'll find local patrons in the breakfast room in the morning, and the older manager of the hostel seems a little distracted though quite friendly.

The Location

The village of Bled is quite small, so everything is within walking distance of the hostel. After arriving in Bled (typically via bus, as the train only goes to a nearby town), the hostel is a ten-minute walk away. Although the streets are hardly well-marked, the town is too small to hide anything, and all the hostels are located on the same road.

You'll find the local Slovenian restaurant right down the hill or a hearty pizza spot around the corner. Bled's nightlife is very quiet, but there is a local pub right down the road from the hostel that can pack a good crowd. The hostel is very convenient for those wanting to climb up to the castle; one of the trails starts on the hostel property, and the owner is more than happy to point the way for you.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Converted from an old house, the hostel is built of old oak wood and dark carpets. The rooms are large with plenty of space, containing a table and several wardrobes. Although the rooms do not offer lockers, each room does have an ensuite bathroom/shower for approximately ten beds. The bathrooms are spacious and very clean, with a large sized shower.

Common Spaces

The hostel doesn't really offer "social" spaces, as it just tends to be too quiet compared to a typical hostel. It does offer a small chair in the lobby, a small side room with a couch and a table, and a large dining room for meals (breakfast is included in the price). The hostel seems to be occupied typically by older groups, families, and younger travelers. The hostel provides free Wi-Fi, and you can borrow the reception desk to use the internet if you don't have your own access point.

Summary

HI - Bled - Penzion Bledec Youth Hostel offers a quiet, secluded place to relax while absorbing the natural beauty in Bled. It's a great place to stay if you're looking for a quieter experience.

The best Hostel In BLED

my brother and I stayed last night but had to leave at 5am so unfortunately didn't get a chance to say goodbye or write in the guest book! But just wanted to say a massive thank you for the fantastic hospitality; delicious meals; and lovely, friendly stay in Bled. Thank you for all your help and going out of your way to get us breakfast that early in the morning!

Didn't stay there because of attitude of staff

I arrived about 12 o'clock and was asking just to check the room before paying (how it looks -- how much place does it have -- cause i had a bad experience the night before also with "good" hostel). The woman was terrible -- i had to feel stupid because i wanted to see the room. And its quite expensive too -- 21-22 EUR. And there is no opportunity to get it cheaper without breakfast.

This was one of the best hostels I've stayed in throughout all of Europe, if not the best. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. The rooms are extremely clean and nice with a great bathroom. The price was incredible considering the quality with breakfast included!

Very comfortable hostel and very helpful staff. A good breakfast is included in the price. The only downside is the lack of self-catering facilities, but there is a cheap pizza restaurant nearby.

This hostel is a nightmare to find if you follow Lonely Planet map - just get off at the bus station and turn left following the signs. The hostel is lovely. It's very old fashioned (in a good way). The dorm is the nicest I have stayed in. The dorms have en-suite bathrooms -- really clean and nice. It is like staying in a hotel -- an excellent choice of hostel. Plus breakfast is included. The downside is that there are no lockers.

What a great little hostel! The rooms were really comfortable and very clean. The staff were really friendly and helpful, although busy, and organised a canyoning trip for me. It is a hike up the hill, especially with a pack, but a cold beer and warm atmosphere awaits you on arrival! The only thing that could be done to improve would be to provide lockers in the rooms rather than just cupboards. But the staff were happy to lock up valuables whilst I was canyoning anyway so it was no problem. I would recommend it to anyone and will be back again no doubt!
