Definitely a must if in Ljubljana, but don't expect any upgraded facilities or very clean accommodations. The concept behind the hostel and area around it is very cool and a great experience, but some of the basics were disappointing. Dirty and tiny kitchen with bare minimum cooking abilities, shared bathrooms weren't very clean and far too few showers/stalls, and the beds and linens didn't feel very clean either. Staff were very friendly though, and it was a great backpacking atmosphere.


Great place - I stayed at Celcia the forth time there. The location is near the train station (6 minutes walk) and a 5-10 minutes stroll to the center. The rooms are a little bit small but the public spaces, the meditation room etc are great supplements. Stay there! Johannes


Great people, friendly and smart area with an edge!

Friendly and helpful staff, lots to see and do. The hostel is in a great location. The sheets on the beds weren't fitted well and we got bitten by mosquitoes but this is my only complaint. I would definitely.recommend and stay again.


I had a nice time staying at the hostel. I ordered a 12 bedded dorm but ended up in a 7 bedded one. This was quite small in size, the beds were pretty close to each other plus the room was located right beneath the ceiling so at some places you couldn't stand up straight. Other than that, can't have any real complaints on my experience here. Maybe the bar should be open a bit longer?

Location of hostel is pretty good, placed in a really interesting place. Only problem is the atmosphere is none existent such a big place but not many young people. Beds are so small and so close together, had issues with our bathroom as well.


The hostel is located just 5 minutes away from every major attraction-railway station, bus terminal, major tourist attractions. The hostel has lot of historic significance and is a monument in itself


Location is good, very close to the train/bus station and it is also in heart of the Grafitti/Street art area. Breakfast is good but you need to pay for it. Staff were very helpful. I recommend.


Was expecting a lot from Celica Art Hostel but was a bit disappointed with the facilities. I stayed in a dorm room my first night and the set up was a bit strange having two mattresses directly next to each other. And the bathroom in the dorm was filthy. But the location, staff, and atmosphere were all really good.


Was in a 12 bed dorm, in the attic, was literally cramped into a tiny spot with too many people. Was literally a mattress on the floor cause the ceiling wasn't high enough to have a bed frame. The staff told us nothing about the city, no info at all. Was only okay to stay a night cause we arrived late by train. Then moved onto a better hostel for cheaper in town.


Organised and clean, this hostel is in an awesome cultural area of Ljubljana, surrounded by awesome street art and cool alternative bars. The facilities are good and well maintained. Staff are informative and always prepared to help. Would recommend.


Location ok, in the middle between center and trainstation. Unfortunately we got the room under the roof, we couldn't stand upright in most of the room and they really squeezed in as many beds the dorm could take. Shower was hot but would profit a lot from renovation. Kitchen not very well equipped. Big plus: lot of very nice common rooms to hang out with others. The atmosphere was perfect and we had a great time there anyway.


Lovely hostel. Easy walk into town and metalcova area is really neat. A bit more kitchen space would be awesome as would some more power points but otherwise a great spot.


The location is great, in Metelkova Mesto. You can't miss this when in Ljubljana. It's a ten minute walk to the old city centre. There is a lot going on in the hostel, which is nice.


All right, PROS: close to train station, bar,free wifi, good staff. CONS: a bit of a walk to the city center, no atmosphere at all(many people goes here for a night or 2), my dorm was in the roof so not much space


awesome hostel with everything you need in a unique location.


Bad staff. Gave wrong directions and wasn't so helpful.


Very lovely hostel would recommend to everyone who's staying in Slovenia, close to the station and has restaurant which is fab for when your traveling


We liked the location, the design and the gigs they host so it's a place for locals too. Everything also was just ok; service from staff was efficient but not particularly welcoming or friendly, bathroom was not the best design as it was always wet and often not that clean, and the rooms were cute but slightly dodgy in there execution and extremely dusty (i don't have but allergies eithmy nose went crazy both times we stayed there).


The staff is very friendly and helpful. The history of the building is interesting; architecture and decoration are very nice: lots of space to sit and relax! The internet access is good and computers are available if you don't have your own mobile device. We enjoyed using the simple but good bicycles which can be hired to explore the city. The kitchen could be better equipped (there were no tea towels; not much cutlery ) but food is available at the hostel. There was nice music every evening.
