    This hostel was absolutely amazing, the rooms and bathrooms were clean. The beds were so comfy, even if a bit close together (but we were a group of 4 so it was ok). It had a fantastic atmosphere, and it seemed popular. The food looked really good, and the bar was decently priced. It was a short walk from the station and an Aldi, as well as being close to the centre of town. I would 100% come back.

    Amazing hostel!!!!! Staff were so helpful, the cell rooms are super cool, the prison remains in the basement add a cool aspect to the hostel - like staying in a museum! The garden is amazing and a really sociable space, with BBQs every weeks and lots of other hostel run events. It’s a very chill hostel, you’re really trusted to do whatever you want and everyone respects the quiet hours and cleanliness rules etc. Location was amazing too - 10 min walk to centre. Will definitely be returning!

    The hostel was very nice, it was very close to the train station so very convenient for interrailers. There was large common area with a wide variety of board games. The staff were very helpful in advising us for things to do in Ljubljana. Overall it was a very unique hostel and was a great place for any length trip.

    Absolutely perfect, best hostel I've ever stayed in by far! The style of the place and the staff service is second-to-none and the food is great too. A gem of a hostel in a gem of a city, there's only one place to stay in Ljubljana!

    This hostel was very nice and super clean. We stayed in a twin private and it was comfortable and quite close to the city center. Also if you have a second to relax while travelling I would recommend spending some time in the garden, there are some amazing comfy hammocks to hang out in. I have stayed at quite a few hostels and this one would be in my top three for sure. Every staff member I talked to were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast great for vegans as well!

    Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable when asking for information about the city and local trips. The Saturday night BBQ was great and had an excellent veggie option. There were a range of social activities to participate in.

    Staff at the reception was not friendly. Rooms were clean, but very small. We were with 5 guys in a room packed full of rather small beds. The atmosphere at the hostel is quite boring, there were no activities that you would expect, and staff did not do anything to give guests an extra fun stay.
