    Lovely hostel with a premium feel! Beds are very comfy and en-suite shower made it feel more like a hotel with a hostel price. Everyone was very friendly and I loved the aesthetics of the hostel. But for the bars would never have thought it was a former prison! Only disappointment was I was in a bed on the second floor and everyone’s lockers were under my bed so was woken up to people getting their stuff from their lockers! Also the ceiling is very low! Only negatives for this place!

    Really nice hostel in one of the more fascinating and interesting area of Ljubljana.Only down, the dorm at the last floor (where I slept), although interesting for the smart and efficient way of placing a lot of beds in a single space, results a bit claustrophobic and unpractical (no more than 1 person standing in the room at one time). Nevertheless, cleanliness is top, staff is young, nice and really helpful and the atmosphere is excellent.Highlight: the panels with all the story of the hostel!

    If you want a unique hostel experience this is for you. Modern (recently totally remodeled) and a creative use of space for dorms. Great security, individual lockers - our mixed (attic like) dorm was super cramped. Modern amenities, excellent breakfast (4 euro if not included with your pricing). Self laundry service! (6 euro). Fascinating graffiti ‘installation/artists community next door. Felt a little sketchy to me with lots of groups of men eyeballing the hostel guests coming/going, but OK.

    Nice hostel, very clean. Dorm rooms were the oddest I’ve seen, as all were just low level beds, no bunk beds due to the low ceiling. Due to slopes ceilings and beams you need to be careful not to bang your head when you sit up in bed. Staff were friendly, basic but good kitchen, laundry facilities and very clean.
