The room was amazing for such a low price! We will definitely stay here the next time. The shared bathroom was very clean and we didn't have to wait to take turns with other guests. People are very kind, especially the pregnant reception lady and the girl who offered us coffee for breakfast. :)

This hostel is in the center of Kranj, near lake Bled (30 minutes) and Ljublana (10 minutes). The room has simple setting, but it is very modern. The self-service kitchen is very practical. The bathroom is common.

Clean, comfort and cute ambient. The staff was polite and helpful. We stayed in the room Kremšnita, wich was clean and nicely decorated. At the reception we got useful information for visiting the city and the place where you can eat well. We have enjoyed during our visit to Kranj and I would definitely recommed it. It was like a...

Excellent situation in a quiet, narrow street in the old town - just 100m from restaurants and cafes. Very clean and spacious - with a lounge, balcony, dining room, kitchen, small dormitories (4, 6 and 8 beds) and twin rooms. Breakfasts were generous. I've stayed in hostels for over 55 years (yes !) and this was probably the best. Only... More

Six of us embarked on a cycle tour of the Julian Alps from here. The location is fantastic, the rooms and facilities very good. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and made an effort to meet a request. The breakfast was good. Use of the hostel kitchen was a useful bonus. A lovely balcony looks over the river gorge... More

My girlfriend and I were there for an overnight stay but got ripped off by the woman holding the hostel. We agreed we could arrive at 11pm in the night but no one was there to open the door and no one answered on the phone number. Ao we had to take another (more expensive) hotel on the night itself....

Cukrarna is a great hostel that offers great value for your money. It's located right in the old town of Kranj so all the beautiful buildings and little shops are within easy reach. The staff were helpful and kind. As it's rather a backpackers' hostel, don't expect sterile (and in my opinion rather boring) hotel atmosphere. When we were there,... More

We booked the Sladoled room in this hostel and the view was amazing! Helpful staff, good location (also Kranj is not far from the airport), not sure how was the breakfast because of too busy schedule :) the bathroom was with bothy shower and a bath tub, room was clean and bright. I would come back!

The best part about the Cukrarna was Elanda. We arrived after midnight on a late flight into Ljubljana and she was waiting for us with a smile and a warm greeting. She made parking arrangements for us, a great relief. It had been a long day, no more worries, we slept soundly that night. And who greeted us in the... More

This is a great place to visit. The staff welcomed our family with enthusiasm. The kitchen is well stocked with basics like oil, salt & spices to enable travellers to make some cheap tasty meals. The free washing machine & dryer were a god send. The buffet breakfast catered for many tastes. Well done guys.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cukrarna, the sweetest hostel (cuker means sugar in Slovenian language). House was renewed in 2003 into sweet shop. Best sellers that time was torta, potica, gibanica, struklji, pita, sladoled. (Slovenian traditional desserts). In 2011 we open door to turists all over the world as hostel. To keep the sweet tradition of the house we named all our 8 rooms after the traditional Slovenian desserts. We are situated in the old town centre of Kranj, the capital of Upper Carniola region in Slovenia. Kranj is between Ljubljana (25km) and Bled (30km), two of the main tourist attractions in Slovenia. The Ljubljana airport is only 7 km away! That gives our town/and hostel unique position; you can do daily trips wherever in Slovenia and come back to cozy nice hostel. We have 5 double rooms and 3 dorms (4, 6, 8 beds) on two floors. Each floor has 2 bathrooms and 2 toilets. If the hostel is not crowded we give you your personal bathroom. Ground floor has lounge, kitchen, terrace and two toilets and serves as meeting point for the guests. ... more   less
