Property Information:

Awarded as No.1 HIPPEST HOSTEL IN THE WORLD by Lonely Planet, listed among the 25 ULTIMAT E PLACES TO STAY IN THE WORLD by Rough Guides, chosen as No.1 hostel in Slovenia by Hostelworld.com according to guests' reviews in 2011.

A must-stay experience when visiting Ljubljana. Spend the night in one of the 20 unique former prison cells with prison bars on windows and doors. Not entirely your cup of tea? Make your bed in one of the hostel's more traditional multi-bedded private rooms with unique artistic elements.

As far as we see it, it couldn't be better. Just a 5-minute walk from the main bus & train station, makes it perfect for late arrivals or early departures. No curfew, no lockout, reception opened 24/7. In case of later arrivals (later than 6pm), just drop us a quick e-mail or phone call to inform us. 10-minute walk to the old Ljubljana city center, surrounded by the funkiest environent ever – Metelkova City with bars, pubs, galleries and theatre.

FREE PARKING for those arriving by car! Not bad, ha!

    The staff at Celica were very helpful and nice. I was there during the Olympics and they had highlights playing on a projector. Breakfast is 3 euro and it's pretty good - some cereal, bread, cold cuts, and cheese. The hostel is a short walk away from the old city area and about a five minute walk from the train and bus station. I was in a cell room with 3 beds and it was a little small, but a cool experience!
