    Nice cosy hostel with comfy kitchen and bar, great food, nice beds but tiny rooms. Definitely a party place, but depending on your roommates also cosy and lovely. You have everything you need here.

    I was very happy with my stay at hostel celica. the staff were great and told us about all the bars/clubs the locals go to. Breakfast was an awesome deal. It was a little outside the city but extremely close to the train/bus station. but only a pleasant 10 minute walk to the city center. next time i am in Ljubljana i will absolutely stay here again!

    Beautiful hostel. Cool communal space and kitchen. My friends bed and mine were very close together, so I think it would be really awkward if I were next to a stranger. The roof was also really low, and my friend hit her head a few times on the slope. Someone left the floor dirty after shower and it wasn’t sorted out that day. Very eco conscious hostel though, which I love.

    Great hostel! The property is beautiful and the staff were top notch. Perfect location with town being only a few minutes bike ride away and the bus/train station only a few minutes walk. Breakfast was good value for €4, bikes €6, free towels and they had a spare adapter for charging my phone. I didn’t like that you only have about 2inches between beds so you’re lying face to face with strangers.. it’s uncomfortably intimate. Small dividers near the head of the beds would be a game changer

    Very Good

    Three bed room was quite small. I thought it was a nice enough hostel, the reception staff were helpful. I didn’t meet many other backpackers but I was with a friend and I didn’t make much effort. It was a shame that my experience was tainted slightly at the end by a cleaner taking my earphones off my bed. I had accidentally left them there after checking out but they weren’t in lost property when I realised or in the room when I went back to check

    The bed was so noise I could barely move. The toilet in my suite smelled like pee and was very dirty.
