    Beautiful hostel! The design and history of the building is beautiful and each room is unique and compelling. Right in the middle of Metalkova area of the city, there’s amazing street art everywhere. The breakfast was delicious and while we were there, they had a great BBQ event as well as yoga classes! Would highly recommend - this one is a gem!

    Best hostel I’ve stayed at. So fun. Breakfast was good, good facilities to do your own thing as well. Nice book and clothes swap added some charm. Staff are friendly and the place is clean. Easy to get to from train station and close to centre. Couldn’t ask for much more. Definitely recommend.

    It’s an Amazing hostel, probably the best hostel I’ve stayed in. It’s clean, amazing facilities, excellent staff, excellent value for the money you pay Note: don’t get scared for the crazy street that is close to it, it might be a bit shocking to some people, but it’s secure, don’t worry :)

    I stayed in a 10-bed mixed dormroom in which everyone got a single bed (no bunk beds). The room had two bathrooms. The hostel was clean and well-organised. The free breakfast was nice, and it included a range of things, e.g. toasted bread and spreads, some fruit, milk, yogurt, cereal, and ham. The area is okay, not in the historic centre of Ljubljana but close to it. I'd say it's a 15-minutes walk. Instead, it is really close to the station (less than 10 minutes) which is always great.

    This is my 3rd time staying at Celica. As usual the value was great. Pros: * close to the bus station * air conditioned common areas/rooms * affordable bar and lots of room to hang out * adjacent to metelkova if that's your scene Cons: * the 5 bed dorms are very packed in. If multiple people are trying to move about and get ready, it can be tedious and annoying. * the upstairs common area is pretty noisy and quite hot due to the sunlights so don't expect to sleep in too late

    Polite staff, clean and modern bathrooms, nice and filling breakfast with many options to choose from. Really nice with just a short walk to/from the station as I got in by train and took off next morning by bus. Not far to walk down to city centre, 10 min or so. In general is seemed you didn’t need more than a full day or two to experience what Ljubljana had to offer.

    It is pretty close to the city center and train station. Really nice free breakfast! But I found it hard to meet people in this hostel. There was a concert in the evening but it was free for locals so it was really hard to find people actually staying in the hostel, also there is a lot of families and children

    Great hostel right next to art district Metelkova Mesta (a must-see). Short walk to bus/train station and 10 mins walk to the old town. Very clean and had a cool aesthetic with unique prison-style rooms. The air con was a saving grace in the hot weather! I stayed in a 2 bed dorm but there were no lockers for valuables or shelves/sockets next to the bed to store personal items/charge phones which I would expect from a well designed hostel. Cool common spaces and courtyard for events.
