    We loved this hostel! To start with, the history behind the jail use is very interesting. We arrived on a late bus in the early hours of the morning and still had a friendly welcome due to the 24 hour reception. There is also a free breakfast which has great options and is very tasty. It is about a 10 minute walk into the centre and is close to both the bus and train station. Definitely recommend!

    Hostel Celica is one of the nicest hostels I’ve stayed at in my travels. Amazing atmosphere, location, and value! Wish I stayed longer. It’s located near the train and city center in an energetic arts district. The building is made of beautiful reclaimed woods and conserve energy technologies. It’s very clean and modern. The hostel, room, and locker are all opened with a personal key card. There is a bar, patio, and small kitchen. The 12 person loft was rather nice as were the guest

    Amazing place for backpackers to stay, everyone was very welcoming the atmosphere was great the only problem I would say is the kitchen is a bit small for how many people needed to cook at night but apart from that it was my favourite hostel to stay at.

    There are no lifts. Located some distance away from Old City. At the back of the hostel is Metelkova Art Center/graffiti, which makes it a little rowdy at night.

    Very Nice place. The staff was very friendly and smiled a lot. Breakfast was the best I have had on my travel. I slept in 12 persons room, it was very clean and bright, full of natural light came through the windows. Felt safe even in a 12 persons dorm, would definitely recommed

    Really nifty hostel with supportive staff and quality, clean facilities. Free breakfast was definitely a plus. The common areas are pretty large and dispersed so it wasn’t the easiest to meet other people as a solo traveler, but just have to put in a bit of effort.
