Clean rooms, new furniture, comfortable beds, kitchen in every floor, free wi-fi,... There are computers you can use, the coffee in coffee shop near entrance was also good (it is only open till 1pm). During summer vacations it was quiet.

The Proteus (everything is named after the baby dragons) YHA hostel has everything we needed: a kitchen with fridge, washing machine, wifi, good showers & plenty of helpful information. The staff were friendly, and the rooms are comfortable. The hostel is...

This hostel is vast but empty, it is definitely not quaint and characterful. It is however clean and functional, and I had a good night's sleep. If your sole requirement is cheap accommodation in the area, look no further.

I have enjoyed it enormously! I came on business and did not had a clue it is going to be so clean and cosy. All beds are made from wooden pallets and have unique style. Hostel is located in a beautiful and large park so all scenery is green. Recommendable!!

It's a clean hostel, located in a small town so it's walking distance to everywhere. A great place to stay for a night while visiting Postojna cave. It's located between Ljubljana and the coast and very close to Cerknica lake (check it out!!).
