Maybe it's because of the building itself, but the atmosphere was really creepy, though the room I stayed qas wuite nice, with mezanine and view to the castle.


Location and the staff are the positive. Facilities are not great.


Nice hostel really close to the center

Superrr central! Main sqaure is like 100m away! Place was clean until a bunch of drunk guys came and made a mess during the night! Staff is not 24hrs at reception but they waited for us since we arrived quite late. Place forms part of an art school which obviously had a nice decor in common areas! Would definately recommand it!


all in all it was a nice stay, but after our stay some people of our group realized, that they got bed bugs from the hostel!

Great location right in the centre of the city, Clean beds & showers and very friendly staff. We were informed thoroughly of everything we could do in the charming little city by our hostess who was warm and friendly. Would definitely recommend staying here.


My bed's mattress is terrible! Other aspects are good: the location is good, you can go anywhere in the city easily; the staff is nice.

A pleasant stay in the hostel - which is in a great location, a short walk away from the train station and very close to the town centre! The hostel is basic and does the job, we had a twin room which had no cupboards or storage of any sort but for two nights it was fine. No complaints, but if you're hoping for a good nights sleep this isn't the one! Lots of young party people here I think, although the staff try to control the noise it isn't quiet here.


Not the best looking hostel. But staff was very helpful so it made up for peeling walls and wires hanging out from walls. The location would be great if there wasn't a sport event going on the square and the windows weren't shaking by loud music. But location is excellent and close to the station and centre.


Toilets, bathroom and kitchen were dirty. Room needed some cleaning as well. Beds are not comfortable, you can feel all of the springs of the mattress. For this price you can find many other hostels with better conditions. Otherwise it is good for a short stay and it is really close to everything.


Hostel AVA was okay but nothing special. The receptionist was really friendly though and the location was great however, the church bells outside are LOUD. For some reason they seem to ring multiple times at random throughout the night which was really annoying. I know they can't avoid this really but without aircon or any sort of ventilation in the room you need to keep the windows open. Beds are also really uncomfortable which was a shame.


Location is great !


The location of this hostel could not be any better. Right in the very heart of Ljubljana. Rooms are very quirky with mezzanines however the beds are extremely creaky, the slightest movement sounds like thunder, however the location makes up for this. Only other drawback was that the room was very hot but other then that the staff were lovely and the hostel was buzzing with travels from all over the world.


Though a little shabby, this is a great hostel if you want to see the town. Its walking distance to the bus and train stations, and the staff is very helpful if you want to sight see or make further travel plans. The downtown core it literally on the door step of this place, which is amazing. If you are on a budget and looking for a good time this is a great place.
