Not much atmosphere but the breaky was amazing, very close to old town. Would recommend!


The staff was incredibly helpful!!! Great location for walking or driving.


I wouldn't stay here again. It was very hot during my stay and the hostel did not have air conditioning which made it unbearable at times, and impossible to sleep at night. The wifi only worked half the time and the bathrooms were almost always dirty and out of toilet paper or hand towels. The beds weren't very comfy and the hostel door and doors to the dorms were never locked so not the most secure. On a positive note the staff were friendly, the pillows were comfy and the breakfast was great.


very friendly and helpful team. great kitchen, extremely well equipped and clean. nice rooms. would come back!


It was peaceful and calm. Not suitable for party animals. There weren't any lock on doors of shower booths so it was bit embarrassing though nothing happened as it wasn't busy. The breakfast was really fresh and warm. It's not right in the centre or next to the main train/bus station but since Ljubljana is a small city, and every single corner was beautiful, the walk was pleasant. 20 mins to the station, 5 mins to the sort of entrance of the centre. Staffs were really kind and I felt like home


Good locations, rooms could be improved with fan/aircon and a fly screen. Free breakfast was good and so was the wifi. Water out one night but was refunded so happy


An awesome hostel. Maybe the nicest and most helpful staff i've ever experienced. The breakfast was absolutely incredible and it was included in the already cheap price. There are basketball courts and free ball borrowing at the hostel as well. Excellent place


We have had a great stay! Would definitely recommend this hostel to others!

Location close to the centre and a nice little walk Staff were very helpful and friendly, especially liked the two members of staff who helped me find the cheapest flight ticket back to the UK and also recommended good transport to the airport from the centre. Also one of the guys who worked mornings recommended Lake Bohinj, which is just beautiful and not touristitic like Lake Bled. The free breakfast was very good! Also free use of a washing machine Thank you :)

Cool hostel and you can't beat the price. The breakfast is really good and there's a basketball court behind the hostel if you're into hoops. A 7 minute walk to the city center, so not too far.


It's a very good hostel and would recommend to stay there! Staff is helpfull and friendly-special thank you to Boris. It's comfortable, the location is good, they serve a great Sloven breakfast, and all of this for a good price! The atmopshere is maybe just the down side, since it's a big building, it's quite hard to meet with other travelers. But I would recommend this hostel for sure!


Staying here was super fun! The staff is super friendly and breakfast is amazing. The town center is only about a ten-fifteen minute walk away and less than five minutes are cute shops and pedestrian only roads. The kitchens in the hostel are awesome. The only drawback were the showers in the girl's bathroom. It looked like there was mold growing on the bottom of them. Otherwise, it was awesome!


This is actually a school turned into a hostel during the summer. And it's great! There is so much space, and even in July it was not over-crowded. Breakfast is included and delicious. City center is 10 mins walking, bus station 20 mins. The staff was super helpful and nice - they even surprised my sister with a small gift on her birthday. I would definitely recommend this place!


Really lovely and sweet hostel, stairs are a bit of a nightmare (4 flights to get to 3rd set of rooms), but there's a kitchen and common area on each floor so you don't need to go up and down too much. Facilities otherwise great - free laundry but washing machine broke whilst we were there and there was a bit of hassle trying to get it fixed. I was ill one day and the receptionist helped look up options for doctors etc. Free breakfast was amazing! Close to town too :-) Thank you xx
