A really cool concept and space, but I was disappointed with the big dorm room. It's basically an attic room with a ton of mattresses inches from each other. The locker I was assigned was broken and the 2nd bathroom in the room was out of order so the one everyone shared was filthy. The shower was also a light mist, no pressure. Knowing this, I would maybe stay somewhere else and just come check out the building for food and drinks and the tour of the cells instead.

Sincere apologies for the 2nd bathroom, which is currently out of order, we're working on refurbishing it, but have not completed the works yet, unfortunately. We would also wish you had informed us about the broken locker, which could have been fixed right away by our maintenance staff, present at the hostel every day. You are more than welcome to visit us again next time and book beds in maybe smaller dorms or cells in order to enjoy your stay more. Wish you all the best!

Vibrant, exciting and friendly place to stay - I loved the artwork and the history of the place!

Exceptional hostel. Back packing around Europe and this is the best of the best. 5 min walk from train station (a little tricky to find) and a 10 min walk to main square. Highly recomend

The price is a bit steep to charge for Wi-Fi access ... felt very nickel-and-dimed in this hostel, but good location and bar makes it easy to meet people

Owner Comment (Hide)
Charge WiFi access? We're afraid there has been a mistake as the WiFi is FREE for Celica guests. There is an internet price list at our reception, which is exclusively only for external visitors (people who don't sleep at the hostel) who want to use the internet and to rent computers in the common area. Making feel guests nickel-and-dimed would really be the last thing on our list, that's for sure. Best,

The second time I stay at Celica, and is always amazing. The hostel is just perfect, in a great location few minutes from the centre, the staff is super friendly and knowledgable and the bar with outer terrace is just that one more thing that makes it one of my favorite hostels in Europe!

Yeah, what's better than to start a day with a good breaky in the Celica garden. Look forward to meeting you at Celica again soon!

Nice place in the city center.. well located and special to be in a place like this! 12 bed dorm can be a bit crowded and dirty, but also a fun experience. :)

This hostel is a bit out of the city centre but if you need a quick get away to the station then it is perfect. It is very close to the station. It is extremely clean but a bit expensive and if you are in a large dorm then you will not be in a prison cell. I didn't see the prison cells while I was there because the tour was once per day and I missed it. You can still do a tour if you are not staying at this hostel. The staff are amazing but so are all Slovenian people. It is a bit expensive.

The hostel is really just around the corner from the main train and bus station. However, a 10-minute walk to the old town city center doesn't sound too hard, especially if you take a stroll through the old town and enjoy the city vibe on the way to the main square. Next time make sure to book beds in a cell to have the prison experience you'll never forget. Wish you all the best!

The hostel is conveniently located in walking distance to railway station and city centre. There are some alternative youth culture facilities in the same block.

Probably the coolest hostel I've stayed in :) Tuesdays is open mic/ concert night !! Very good location and very friendly staff. Only downside was the bathrooms and no wifi in rooms

Owner Comment (Hide)
Not having the WiFi in the rooms can be a downside, but there's little we can do about the thick walls as the building dates back in the 19th century. Look from the bright side, this way the guests come and hang out in the common areas on the ground floor, which makes the hostel atmosphere livelier and more social, don't you think? Wish you all the best!

Celica is a good place, it has a good staff and a neat concept. Close to the train station but about 15 min walk to the old town center. It doesn't have a common room, more like tables in a restaurant. Please environment but not very easy to meet people. In a very alternative place in the city.

It has something for everyone.... Hammocks, shisha, comfortable beds, rave parties, all the normal stuff that doesn't usually go together

Very well organised and efficient hostel. Staff are extremely friendly. Not the best washing machines-a bit of a gross laundry room. Nice rooms.

The hostel is in a near area of town and right near the train and bus station. The bathrooms weren't always clean and especially in the 12 bed dorm, the bathroom really stank. The common area is great though and there's an awesome club right around the corner from the hostel.

Fantastic hostel to stay in. We got a guided tour of the hostel, and there is much more to it than just a place to sleep. Interesting history and the prison cell rooms are very cool. Not too far from the city centre and plenty of alternative bars close by.

Good interior decoration. perfect location and easy to find. Clean bedroom and bathroom But a bit noisy at night as there's a bar downstairs

Owner Comment (Hide)
It can get a bit noisy downstairs, especially in summer with all the events taking place outside in the garden. However, we'd like to think there's always something goin' on for all ages and tastes. Thanks for sharing!
