    If you are going to Ljubljana then make sure you stay here!! The staff are so nice and helped me with the stupidest questions. The rooms are great (no bunk beds in the 12 bed ;) ) and the bathrooms are very clean, plus they have nice showers. The free breakfast had a vast choice of food, which was a big plus. I felt so at home here and wish I never had to leave!

    Amazing hostel, staff were really friendly and there was a great atmosphere around the place. Best breakfast I've had in a hostel by far. Rooms were quirky and comfortable, shower was great too. Kitchen was quite small for the size of the hostel (only 2 rings) but I suppose it brings guests closer because you really have to share the small space! Great location too, everyone seemed to love it here

    It's a super cute place, but I think the only problem is the beds are so small and I'm 1.62, all beds are super super close maybe have rooms just for girls could be so nice! I was so lucky because I shared the room with 3 amazing people, and I met people so nice in the area for the kitchen, and the center or the town is very close by walk, I was not so fan just of the beds but the restroom is super clean! I hope to back because this city is the most! :) I hope see u soon dear Ljubljana

It look sketchy when you enter the area where the building is located but don't be scary the place is really nice and the staff very friendly !!! I was just staying 4 one night but I would definitely stay again if I come back to Ljubljana one day hopefully!!!!!

    The kitchen is a bit to small for many people. The corridor lights shines into the rooms, which is annoying during the night.

    This is a pretty elite hostel IMO. It has a ton of common spaces that create a unique feel compared to other hostels. Great place to meet people, it’s the atmosphere that makes it stand out. Very social without being really a party hostel, but there is a solid bar. Everything is clean and staff are super helpful. Only thing lacking is that actual beds in the rooms. They’re small and a bit cramped. Sometimes you get a bed under a wall which is not great. Only thing keeping it from a perfect 10

    The hostel is in a really cool building, an old prison. wouldn’t recommend the dorms if you are tall but luckily for me I am only 5ft10 so fit in the bunk beds easy. Can we quite crammed in the smaller dorms, other than that the place is faultless. Would recommend and stay again

    The hostel has pros and cons. For the pros it is extremely clean, the rooms are lovely and the staff are super friendly and helpful. The breakfast is nice and there are big common areas which enable you to chill downstairs. The location is quite good around 10 mins to the city centre. The biggest downside to this place is the atmosphere, it really is not a social hostel although it claims to be. If you want to meet people here is not the place. Had a great stay but it’s more of a hotel vibe
