    The best hostel I have ever stayed in. Fantastic location, brilliant vibe and just a overall amazing hostel. The private cell my boyfriend and I stayed in was clean comfortable and modest with the clean bathrooms just down the hallway! Honestly couldn't rate this place higher !

    Celica is my alltime favourite Hostle. Super clean and new bathroom facilities, amazing artwork in the rooms, perfect location between the trainstation on citycenter of Ljubljana, liveband, very helpful stuff and a good breakfast (4€ extra) which we enjoyed a lot. Due to overbooking we got upgrated to a private room. That obviously made it even better😊😊 Try to get a spot at Celica, its more than just a place to sleep.

    Absolutely amazing hostel, with an amazing style. The staff are possible the greatest of all I've been, as they are always willing to chat with you. Would highly recommend. The only issue is my room had no security lockers and 1 outlet, but it was easy to overlook. I hope to come again.

    Great hostel!! Excellent facilities, feels like a hotel rather than a hostel and very secure. Nice atmosphere too and lots of stuff to do. Would stay here again’

    Really great staff, friendly and gave some great recommendations. My first night there was a huge group of 12-14 year olds which took away from the social atmosphere a bit that night but the other was cool with a live musical performance. Great location right next to bus and train station.

    Overall a great hostel. Room facilities were awesome, but there was only one very small kitchen area for the whole hostel. There wasn’t a great atmosphere when I stayed here, but there was a huge group of teenage students so that might have been a factor. The downstairs area is great and love the converted prison vibe.

    Very Good

    Hostel itself was very nice, lots of light, envIronmentally friendly. Rooms were decent, although if your bag didn’t fit within your designated locker (mine did not and is not even a big or oddly shaped bag), there was not much room where it wouldn’t be in the way. Questionable location, whilst I felt completely safe in the hostel itself, i probably wouldn’t feel safe wondering around the area at night. Also limited restaurants/food stops in the area. The staff were kind and great atmosphere.

    Very Good

    The hostel is 5 minutes walk from the main station (bus and train), and 15 minutes from the city centre. There was live music on in the evening which was a nice atmosphere. The dorm did not consist of beds but of a cluster of what were effectively raised mattresses on the floor. Only about half had chargers/lights next to them. The dorm had two internal bathrooms though which was good. It's a fine hostel but a bit pricey when you can get nicer for 5 times less in other parts of the Balkans!
