    Best choice of hostel in the Slovenian capital clearly is Celica Hostel, conveniently located at a walkable distance from the bus station. From there, you can easily walk to the old town. The place is clean, modern, spacious, and the previous use of the building as a prison shows off in the decoration of the hostel and the rooms without being a burden. Staff at reception were friendly at all times of day. Showers and toilets were clean. Room facing the inner courtroom can be noisy at night.

    Great atmosphere, really cool vibe inside the hostel and outside. Great location, very close to the bus stop and surrounding restaurants. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Thank you to Milica for helping us with everything. The beds were super comfy and the rooms were great size. An old prison transformed into a hostel made for a very unique experience. 10/10 would definitely stay again. Thank you!

    Lovely, clean bright hostel close to buses and trains. The dorm I stayed in was comfortable, with a clean shower and toilet. The Hostel Celica is modern and stylishly designed. Excellent place to stay in Ljubljana.

    Very nice hostel, near the train/bus station. The atmosphere is very cool and artistic. The room “cells” really interesting way to stay, the only complaint is that the bed is quite high and the stairway very narrow, I found several times that it could fall. The breakfast is very good for just 4€. Recommend it!!

    Cutest hostel with amazing 4 euro breakfast and cheap food and drinks all day. Short walk from everything in the city centre as well as the bus/train station. Wanted to stay longer!

    The staff were great and super helpful. It was a super clean and new hostel. The only downside was that the rooms were quite small, with not much room to move.

    We stayed in a 15 bed mixed dorm and there were literally just 15 beds on the ground a foot apart, and the roof was sloped as it was the attic. We had showers in the room which was nice, but it was very hot and it was only May and not so hot outside. We would have enjoyed our experience more had we been in a dorm alone or with less people. Breakfast was exceptional and cheap, and the common areas were nice. We were too scared to go in the basement.

    Nice old building in a good location. The 2nd floor room was cute but I banged my head hard on the very low slanted ceiling.
