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.
We had really high hopes for Celica, however it seems that since winning the Lonely Plant award things have not been kept to the same standards. It was an ok level of cleanliness but the bathroom floor was always soaking wet which wasn't great. Our cell room was disappointing - i.e. not arty and broken things and there are no curtains on the windows to keep the light out. Mostly though the atmosphere and staff were cold and uninformative about the local area which was the most disappointing.

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.
Stayed in a 10 bed dorm. The beds were very close together. You roll over and suddenly you're spooning the person next to you! Really nice bar area and there was a live music session going on the night we were there which was lovely. I liked the way there was a boys bathroom and a girls bathroom in the room and really like whatever kind of attachment they have on the shower- makes it like an ion charged mist or something. Where can I buy one of these!?
definitely is one of the best hostel I am stay which with helpful staff and artistic environment.
Very relaxed atmosphere!

Had to put sheets on the bed ourselves and the bathrooms were wet from the showers leaking. Not worth the price.
Overrated, no vibe at all, full of old couples.
The staff weren´t friendly and for all questions they answer as making a favor for us. The hostel ideia is good, but the didn´t offer a good price for the confort. The three times that I used the bathroom, that was really dirty. Was difficult to take a shower and feeling clear with a lot of dirty surrounding you. Additionally, the quality of breakfast was really poor. In my opinion, the hostel offers great partis and a good atmosphere to met people, just that.
The hostel was nice and clean, but it barely had hangers to put our towels and the atmosphere wasn't very lively. There were a lot of older people, which is not that common in hostels.
Nice hostel. Rooms are a bit cramped though so if you like your space go somewhere else! also very few plug outlets per room and no lockers in the room. It's got a nice atmosphere though and is clean.
Great location and great dinner deals daily. It was cool that this hostel is a former prison. Though the room I was in didn't have that feel, rather it was just a few beds that seemed to have been stuffed into an attic. Luckily I had a single bed to myself, some others had to sleep directly next to a stranger. Wifi didn't work in the room either which was an inconvenience.
We had a nice stay and great breakfast (for 3 euro), great atmosphere there!
A good hostel, had everything that you need there just lacks a bit of atmosphere.
Unique hostel in a unique location. Good bar and staff, solid restaurant and food, and interesting events going on. The cell rooms were nice, but the seven bed dorm wasn't. Dorm bathroom wasn't in the best condition, so you're better off using the downstairs shared bathroom.
