The staff play a very big role in making this hostel so nice. They are very friendly & helpful. It is also really comfortable & has a very chilled out environment.

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!

Bathroom was very very dirty and without toilet paper. They locked woman bathroom in dormitory of 12 people, so was only dirty men bathroom for 12 people, and dorm was full. There are no place to put clothes, only on the floor. No hooks. The key, which opened the door, didn't work well.

the breakfast was very poor,just few things that were not worthy the 3 euro they charge you for it. furthermore, the receptionist seemed quite annoyed working and the women's bathroom lacked in toilet paper. Neverthless we enjoyed our stay at Celica hotel:very nice double bed cells and great location- only 10-15 min walk to the center,while the bars of Metelkova area are just round the corner.

The most notorious & posh hostel in Ljubljana with the best breakfast and very friendly staff but with not so perfect location and not so comfortable rooms. Slightly overrated

It was absolutely one of the best hostels that I have ever stayed at in my life. The staff were amazingly friendly, it was in a very convenient location of the city and was close to clubs and places to get drinks. The hostel itself is very beautiful and is in a beautifully renovated prison. The free tour each day will show you the unique rooms that they have made for backpackers. I can't say enough about this hostel, it was just amazing.

Dusty? Definitely not OK. We'll look into the matter, appreciate your comment, though. Beautiful receptionist? Great to hear that! But careful not to start a war as there are four of them at Celica:) Wish you all the best!

It was a really cool idea, however it was really grungy (the place and the guests). If you like to sit around and smoke and look at graffiti this place would be amazing. My problem was that I am a 24 yo female n I didn't really feel safe. I was travelling with a big guy and even he was creeped out. I wouldn't step foot outside that hostel without him. Also, the wifi was pretty bad.

Its hard to find. It also has a bar on the first floor with music blasting until 2 am, so if you have a room on the first floor forget about sleep until about 2:30 or 3 am. Stuff at the bar was snoby

Hi, thanks for sharing your opinion. We apologize the noise ruined your sleep and we sincerely apologize for that. It's December period and as anywhere else In Ljubljana there's festive atmosphere. Having the bar in the house there might be some livelier nights than usual. A lot of guests actually appreciate the stay-in nights with events and happenings organized by the hostel. Wish you all the best!

Read great reviews and anticipated a fantastic atmosphere but was a little let down. The hostel itself hosts a bunch of bizarre and pretentious art events. Surrounding area and bars didn't live up to expectantions, unfriendly crowd and i witnessed people squabbling over small change and tins of beer. May be better peak season with more tourists around, i wouldn't know. Hostel has cute kitchen, sitting area so good for preparing own food.
