Good location right in the midsole of the main square. Easy to walk to from the main train station. Wifi was good, staff was helpful. Cons. Beds are so uncomfortable, not much of an atmosphere, cooking facilities you can make do with.

Very nice stay, clean and quiet (except the church bell right by the corner which rang all_the_time). Nice location also, walk distance from everywhere, lots of nice cafes nearby. No AC in the rooms which is a minus.

Great location for a hostel, only 1 min from the Pink Church in Centre! Cool visual arts building with winding staircase and paintings everywhere however the rooms were a bit of a let down. Mattresses were just placed on the floor or on top of pallets, did not make for a great nights sleep, I do however have to say that the staff were all fantastic and even upgraded our room before we arrived in the City

Really nice hostel with very friendly and helpful staff who spoke really good english. The rooms were really clean and well looked after. The shower curtains were a bit dirty but thats the only problem I had. Would definitely stay here again

You can't get a better location in Ljubljana, absolutely amazing. The staff is pretty cool as well and is always prepared to help with any of the issues you have. The only minor problem with the brilliant location is the ocasional riging of the bells from the church that overlooks the Prešern square, but your sensory inhibition kicks in quite fast so this it a minor issue. Amazing value for the money you pay.

Staff were speaking english well, 4th floor without elevator was not so comfortable. Cleanliness in common showers was not very good. It could be cleaned more often. Parking of car is worse in whole city - 15 minute walk from the hostel.

This hostel was ok. The toilets and showers aren't particularly nice but they aren't terrible either. There is a common area upstairs with a good computer and a small kitchen and rhere are microwaves and fridges on each floors. We had a private twin room which was basic but not uncomfortable.

The lack of personal lockers in dorms surprised us.Staff weren't very urgent about the need to check the previous room occupants out and that led to great tiring delays for us after such a long journey, but they were nice to talk to. The facilities were good and showers kept very clean for communal ones!

Helpful and friendly staff but the hostel is right next to several churches and the bells woke me up all night. Beds extremely uncomfortable and I was eaten alive by mosquitoes.

Great value for money, especially as it's so central! The hostel itself is secure but there weren't any lockers and in the bigger dorms of multiple groups the door tended to be left unlocked. The location and city itself made up for it though and we loved our stay in Ljubljana.

There is no kitchen during off peak. Very smelly rooms and loos but the rooms are a really good size. Im not sure if i would recommend this hostel. Next time i would spend a bit extra as there are some great hostels in this town.

We actually thought that the receptionist was great (and attractive) and the place had a really good atmosphere. Nice to be surrounded by artwork. Problem with the water on our second morning, but I'm pretty sure that was just a one-off.

Excellent location, besides everything was fine, too.

Hostel AVA is based at the heart of the City of Ljubljana. Excellent location for getting all over the city and surrounding area. Only 10 minute walk from the Bus & Rail Station. The hostel facilities are basic in the rooms but the interior being housed in a historic building which is beautiful. Excellent value for money and location spot on ! The staff are warm and helpful. I highly recommend Hostel AVA for long or short stays. Robert

This hostel shocked and disgusted me. While the location is good, the staff are less than helpful and the hostel itself is very dirty, with graffiti on the walls, dirty floors, broken furniture and beds so 'iffy' i felt the need to check the mattress for bed bugs (none that i could see). no lockers or anywhere secure to store your belongings in the room and door locks that dont always work. For peace of mind, go else where...
