    One of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed at! Very cool atmosphere in an old prison and location is perfect in between old town and the train station! Will definitely suggest this and stay for my next visit!

    Suggestion: make a reservation through the hostel’s website as that way you get to choose a room yourself. We were put in a room that we believed was the least pretty one and the most uncomfortable one. The experience was unique, but staying in the room more than one night would not be possible for us.

    Good location, close to the railway station and old town. Nicely designed and an interesting hostel. In our room, the bed was a bit uncomfortable to climb to especially with a fear of heights. But we survived! Breakfast was good for the price. Staff was very friendly as well. Thanks for a lovely stay in Ljubljana!

    Nice hostel with a twist (used to be a prison). Check in is late (3 pm), but you can leave your luggage in the storage room. I slept in a 4-bed dorm, which was good. There was an outlet next to every bed. Not a lot of space to store your luggage though. Location was good: close to the bus and train station and about ten to fiteen minute walk to the old centre. I missed a bit of an hostel-atmosphere, but maybe that is because the hostel is too big for that.

    We had a great time it’s very social hostel but in a room of 12 there was only one 8 sockets so we couldn’t charge anything while there cos we didn’t have a socket by our bed. Very easy to get everywhere and staff where helpful. Also the hostel is right next to a club/music area where there is a lot of different genres which was very funny and interesting to go see
